Here's your curated photo video news update up to October 23, 2016. Enjoy!Read More
Welcome to The Photo Video Guy. I share news, reviews, opinions and tips to help you make better photographs and videos.
I want to acknowledge Broncolor Canada, for making this kit available to me for review. It's a big step, and demonstrates confidence in the quality of the product that they represent. Their confidence is well founded as the Siros L is a wonderful product.Read More
No matter what camera I look at, regardless of features, specifications and incredible functions, one very subjective thing has enormous impact on how I feel about the camera and my personal ability to use it effectively. That very subjective thing is how the camera fits me.Read More
This post is a summary of all the announcements that I found interesting enough to share from Photokina the week of September 19, 2016. If I miss something that you were really interested, email me and I will look into it. Please do note that I don't cover smartphones or point and shoots so they won't be here.Read More
I was visiting with the folks at Profoto Canada this morning, and Managing Director Jaehong Park graciously showed me an early version of the Pro-10 Flash system announced yesterday at Photokina.Read More
As I finish compiling this, Photokina is opening. I will try to keep the Photokina announcements together, but some came early and so you will see them here. Photokina is a hugely exciting time for photographers with new offerings from a multitude of providers. Expect the next release of the news update to be filled with new gearRead More
When DXO announced the DXO ONE, I wrote a scathing article asking if the superb software company had lost their mind. Who would pay upwards of $600 for a camera that plugged into the Lightning port on an iPhone? It's over a year later and the DXO ONE is now becoming readily available in the Canadian market. Let's see how it fares.Read More
I am a confessed lighting junkie. It's a disease for me, but I come by it honestly having trained with many deities of lighting including the incredible Joe McNally. Today, Profoto announced the next generation of their D series AC powered moonlights, this new edition is called the D2.Read More
The folks at Macphun have something exciting coming, it's Aurora HDR 2017 and if you take advantage of the pre-order promotion, you're going to get extras valued at over $300 USD at no additional cost. Which to me, sounds like a pretty cool deal.Read More
If you edit your photos, particularly your RAW images AND you print OR you make large JPEG images for live display AND you do not regularly calibrate your editing display, you are not getting the image quality that you could get and should be getting.Read More
With Sony, Fujifilm, Olympus and Panasonic / Lumix killing it in the mirrorless space, a popular question is where are Canon and Nikon? Both companies have had mirrorless products for a while, but they just haven't taken off. In this article, I take a deep dive on the Canon EOS-M3 to see how it fares.Read More
I was recently doing a long term evaluation on Sony's awesome PXW-FS7 video camera and wanted to see how using my Canon L series glass on the camera would work out. There are many mount converters available to mount alternate brand lenses on the Sony E mount, but the only one that said it would provide both complete aperture control as well as Autofocus was the Speedbooster Ultra from Metabones.Read More
While I surely do not advocate capturing in JPEG, it's a given that the format is a great way to share images of reasonable size. As our cameras become more sophisticated and have more megapixels in the sensors, the definition of "reasonable" starts to float up there, and that's the rationale behind JPEGmini.Read More
I've discovered in recent weeks that the amount of photo video news, that is actually "news" has become a small percentage of news feeds. So while I may not provide as many links as in the past, I'm trying really hard to confine them to news, or a link that I personally found interesting. For those who have been following individual posts on Google +, the update is now consolidated into a website post with all the links in one place.Read More
I think the rumours about the 5D Mk IV started the day that the 5D Mark III was announced. Since then, the now announced camera has been everything to everyone at all times. With the official announcement all the speculation and "expert perspectives" can now just shut up. Let's take a look at what Canon has announced.Read More
