We Played with the New Canon RF 100-500mm Lens! How Is It?

We’re reviewing the Canon RF 100-500mm f4. 5-7. 1 L IS USM and still trying to figure out who it’s for. It’s an L lens, so Canon will try to target it at the professional photographer. But we’re also sure that the hobbyist is one of the passionate photographers who will pick it up.

Is the Canon RF 800mm F11 IS STM for Wildlife?

The Sigma 85mm F1.4 DG DN Has a Most Unusual Problem

If I told you that the Sigma 85mm f1. 4 DG DN had distortion, you wouldn't believe me. Sigma has always struck home runs for image quality. But their latest lens is an exception. In fact, Sigma told us that we need to turn on peripheral correction in the camera.

Are Sales Proving That Full Frame Is Beating Small Sensor Cameras?

Will We Ever Get the Sony a7s III? These Features Are a Must-Have Now

A solid argument can be made to say that the Sony a7s III is the red-headed stepchild of the family. I mean, Sony has been saying that it's coming for over two years now. With the delays caused by COVID-19 and the rest of the industry catching up or superseding what Sony can do with most video options, the Sony a7s III will need to be just that much better.

When it comes to portrait photography there is no doubt in my mind that softboxes are the most popular diffusers, but parabolic umbrellas and beauty dishes are also a favorite of many photographers.
