    Canon Dual pixel AF isn't cross-type

    I found out last night that the EOS M50 needs horizontal contrast to focus on, it can't focus on purely horizontal straight lines.

    Canon Coche de los Muertos (Car of the Dead)

    So, I go for a walk downtown in the small Oregon town where I live, walking down to the Post Office to mail a letter. And just before I get there, I see...an amazing old car. Parked by an old house. Not going anywhere. In Mexico, traditionally, instead of celebrating Halloween, or All-Saints...

    Film Showcase Canon AF35ML or Super Sureshot

    This is a 40/1.9 lens point and shoot camera from the 80's. Here is one of the shots from the first roll I have shot with it. Film is Kodak TMax 100 and a yellow filter. Not bad I'd say for a loud 80's camera :).

    Canon Any actual Canon FF DSLR users here?

    I'm thinking of getting a Canon FF as a back-up to my m43 system (kind of reversed, I know). I have a Sony a7, and am deciding between that or a 6D. The reason for considering Canon is I need a 70-200/2.8, and the Canon is $1,000 less. So there's that. But of course, I'd lose all the mirrorless...

    Canon EOS M Refurbished Deals through Canon Direct (USA) - Holiday 2017

    I have comments on Canon's fulfillment/delivery capabilities, but you can't argue on the prices they have for EOS M, especially the M3 with 18-55 and they're still throwing in a free EV-DC1 viewfinder. Last year it was for USD 469, now down to 398 for a Refurbished Kit. EOS M10 with 15-45 for...

    Canon Canon G1X III: Finally, a huge step forward for the G X series ...

    Canon Powershot G1 X Mark III APS-C Compact Camera I'm pretty impressed - all decisions are good ones, and if the lens is good enough, it's actually a M5 with a fixed lens - and it's weather-resistant, which is a first for large sensor compacts (bridge cameras have offered this for a while, but...

    Hi all, time ago I tried an EOS M but sold it due to lack of lens.
