LEAK: Full Specs and Leaked Images of the Canon G1X Mark III

Canon leaks generally follow the exact same pattern these days, almost like clockwork. Roughly 10 days before a release we see a confirmed spec list and some pricing info, and about 5 days before the release the first few images come, rapidly followed by a second set of images. Here’s a conspiracy for you… it this planned? The solid leaks of actual translated specs and photos always come from the same two Japanese sources… Anyway … ;) We’ve had a few specifications for the G1X Mark III recently, but now we have the full list, and a set of...

Think Tank Retrospective Shoulder Bag Review

A shoulder bag is such a useful kind of bag for so many types of photography that I think you’d struggle to find a photographer that doesn’t have at least one in their closet. On the seemingly never-ending quest for the perfect camera bag, everyone ends up trying a shoulder bag at some point. The Retrospective series from Think Tank photo is a mid to high-end collection of shoulder bags that are made from extremely durable sand-washed, DWR coated cotton canvas. They have a timeless retro feel to them that looks even better once they’re worn in, and the...

Benro TSL08CN00 Carbon Tripod Review – Only $120?!

Every photographer will need a tripod at some point and it’s an overwhelming decision to make when there are so many options. Some cheap tripods can actually be a hindrance because photographers believe they are getting a stable platform when they aren’t. Another common problem is that people end up with a tripod that is too small, and therefore two uncomfortable to use, or too heavy and therefore too cumbersome to carry. These experiences leave a bad taste in their mouths with regards to tripod usage, and they tend never to want to use one again. High-end tripods such...

CONFIRMED: Full Profoto A1 Photos and Specs Leaked

A couple of days ago we speculated that Profoto were about to launch a new flash called the A1, based on a page that was added to a French Profoto dealer’s website. We guessed, based on the A1 name, that the product was a smaller flash than the B2. I wasn’t able to pull the cached version of the French page  after it was taken down, but thankfully the folks at diyphotography.net picked up the mantle and continued on where my technical skills failed. Not only did they manage to grab the full cached page, they also found a...

Profoto A1 Hotshoe Speedlight on the Way?

We believe that Profoto is getting ready to announce a new small flash called the A1. They have recently been teasing a new kind of product, first reported by Lightingrumors.com, and now a French Profoto dealer appears to have added a page to their site (since removed) which references an A1 flash. Sadly the content was not cached by Google in time for us to get a closer look. Our own investigations show us that the presumed product page for the A1 on the Profoto website sends you to a login page: https://profoto.com/us/a1 If you try to pick a random...

Canon Unveils 85mm f/1.4 L IS Lens

The previously rumoured 85mm f/1.4 L IS lens has officially been launched this evening, and at the rather surprising price of $1600. This is a couple of hundred dollars less than the Canon35mm f/1.4 II that was launched last year, and that lens didn’t have image stabilization. We can only assume that Canon are feeling the pressure from Sigma and Tamron who have both stepped up their lens game considerably in recent years.

NEW: Canon EOS M100 Mirrorless Camera

As expected, Canon unveiled the EOS M100 which promises to be their smallest mirrorless camera yet, and the first with Dual Pixel AF technology. No real surprises here since Canon’s leaky ship gave us all the details last week, although I am a fan of the updated styling in the black model now that I see higher resolution images of it. Shipping in November for $599. Canon EOS M100 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 15-45mm Lens 24.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor DIGIC 7 Image Processor 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 60 fps Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC,...
