Canon T2i Digital SLR Review

Written by

It’s a rebel!

Canon has yet made it again! Finally the company has recently unveiled its new member in the Rebel family of high end professional snappers, Canon T2i DSLR aka Canon 550D. Packed with massive 18 Megapixels CMOS sensor lens, the professional looking camera has a lot to offer you with a definitive performance. Full manual control and astonishing machinery will surely leave you with jaws falling right from the very first moment you will get a hold of it. Discovering the flawless photography saga is now no more alien for the avid shutterbugs. Although Rebel T2i is geared as an entry level DSLR with a variety of features and easy manual controls that make it a very powerful camera even for the advanced photographers as well.

This has simply showed up as an outstanding user friendly snapper and an energizing video recorder, the T2i is undoubtedly a complete package of media at affordable price range. Although it might seem commonsensical for the 550D to replace the predecessor EOS 500D, yet the old cousin is playing its own legacy of sorts in the Canon’s series of smart cameras. Additionally, the T2i hangs on to the workaholic features of its predecessors, so that the camera successfully unifies the best features of existing cameras with advanced technologies. But as a whole when I think of its killer features, I actually tend to fall in love with this modern marvel of technology.

Design that captivates:

Well, the body design and make up is nothing much to brag about as the body of 550D is almost The body is more or less indistinguishable to its earlier members in the EOS family, while it stands it is slightly thicker than the EOS 450D aka EOS Rebel XSi. Furthermore, the snapper boasts an aggressive cut to the hand gripping portion which offers a perfect grip while clicking a shot. The rear portion is bolted with 3 inches LCD unit which is set at 1.04M color dots with 3:2 aspect ratio which means you have a perfect display output and video playback source outfitted in your camera. Furthermore, there are various functional keys dispersed at the rear and on the top portion which adds to the vast varieties of shooting styles. Moving onto the front, it’s embedded with mighty 18.0 Megapixels CMOS sensor. However, various mountable lenses like 18mm-55mm or 55mm-250mm or any other compatible lens can be attached to it depending upon the type of shot you are looking for.


Power packed features:

The snapper is capable of capturing high definition still photographs and videos at 1080p with a potent capacity to capture as many as thirty frames per second. While the 18 Megapixels promises to deliver amazing captures with cutting edge clarity every time you have a hold to this digital imaging tool. Apart from this, the snapper boasts several tempting features which cast their own spell. Aforementioned, the snapper is capable of shooting Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixels videos at maximum of 30 fps. However, with the help of manual exposure control one can adjust the fps from 30, 25 or 24. The included 3.7fps shooting mode and an outstanding ISO range of 100-6400 which can however be further expanded to 12,800 empowers in creating some masterpiece shots.

One of the best features that I found was the 63 Zone Dual Layer Metering Systems, which empowers to create memorable family portraits without any hitch. Offers the photographer to create memorable family portraits. For astounding produce along with fine detail and stunning color, the CMOS image sensor of the camera provides you the outstanding resolution and light sensitivity. Other features includes Highlight Tone Priority that accumulates up to one stop of every details of the highlighted areas, while the Canon's Auto Lighting Optimizer to augment to minimize the shadow detail by adding vivid contrasts to make a smooth scene. The Peripheral Illumination Correction automatically corrects and reduces the brightness of the subject. For diverse creative pictographic possibilities, the T2i features an integrated sensor cleaning system.


Image eminence:

Consistent improvement in the Canon’s EOS series has brought up the best of the best results every time. Therefore, one is always sure that every passing year will bring about some changes in the Canon’s ongoing EOS series and that’s what the company is all about. Over here, Rebel T2i is amazingly blessed with noise reduction features that nearly eliminate the digital traces of the noise in the captures. So, image quality is certainly nothing to worry about when it comes to Canon’s legendary EOS series. The refined image processing of Canon is highly appreciable as it picks the best of everything. Even if you shoot at high ISO, the image quality will keep you amused. The balanced contrast offers natural stance to the captures and it highlights the bit of every detail and captures it all.



  • Outstanding video and image quality.

  • Decent and handy for all kinds of photographers.

  • Multitude of functional features.

Selecting portrait professional software is never easy. What makes the task hard is the fact that there are so many retouching applications in the market, and each single application claims to be the best. But when all is said and done, one has to ultimately make a decision on the portrait professional retouching software to use. Now that is a decision that can be made randomly (without any considerations) – perhaps just by tossing a coin.

The decision on the retouching software to use is also one that can be made in a rational manner: after making some objective considerations. Needless to say, the latter approach to selection of retouching software is better. But for you to be able to use it, you need to know what the relevant considerations are: hence the need for this discussion on the key things you need to consider when selecting professional retouching software. Those key issues that you need to consider when selecting portraitprofessional retouching software include:

  1. User-friendliness: You will generally have an easier time if you opt for a professional retouching software application that is truly user friendly. One good measure of user-friendliness is how easy the software is to use, at a general level. Another good measure of user-friendliness in this sort of software is the appearance of the user-interface: whether it is intimidating or welcoming. When all is said and done, you need to remember that some of the highly hyped portraitprofessional retouching software applications are actually not very user friendly. The user friendliness of the retouching software you opt to use will have a bearing on something as crucial as the amount of time you will be spending on the retouching work tasks. It will also have some influence on how enjoyable (or stressful) the retouching work will be, for you.
  2. Available features: You need to first undertake some research, to gain insight on the features that are generally and by convention viewed as ‘essential features' in retouching software. Then you need to ensure that the software you ultimately decide to use is of a variety that has all the identified ‘essential' features. It is, for instance, crucial for you to know what face touch-up capabilities the software you consider buying has. Then you need to know what ‘feature enhancement' capabilities the software you consider buying has. This is because, in the final analysis, most of the work you'll be doing in terms of retouching portraits, will revolve around those two areas – namely feature enhancements and facial touch-up.
  3. User support: You are definitely better off opting for a retouching software application that enjoys genuinely good technical support. This will ensure that help will always be at hand whenever you get stuck with certain aspects of the software's usage. Security and other technical patches/updates for the retouching software are also likely to be available in a timely manner (if you opt for a well-supported application).
  4. Cost: All we can say about cost is that you should see to it that the software you opt to buy is, in all senses, good value for money.
  5. Versatility: You can figure out how versatile a given retouching software application is by trying to get insight on the sorts of plug-ins available for it, and trying to understand what import and export capabilities it has.

Canon EOS T4i

Written by
Digital cameras must be among the most popular gadgets in the world. Individuals like to use them due to the fact that they offer cheaper, and simpler solutions for modern photography. As a result of their popularity, lots of companies are constantly presenting new cameras which are said to possess new components, and design. Among the most impressive, and popular cameras these days is the Canon EOS T4i. This camera has sophisticated attributes not seen before in the DSLR market. A new DIGIC 5 processor, autofocus in video mode, new silent auto-focus lenses, a built-in stereo mic, and a touchscreen are functions which set it apart from the competition. The Canon EOS T4i has an APS-C sensor with a familiar 18-megapixel resolution, yet it is now coupled with a more powerful Digic 5 processor. A DIGIC Processor functions in conjunction with a CMOS sensor-the CMOS sensor captures the light and changes the brightness at every pixel into an electronic signal; the DIGIC processor processes every separate signal and (for JPEG pictures) converts them into a completed, identifiable picture. It's a pretty resource demanding task, and the limits of the processor influence picture quality, noise, and shooting speed. The DIGIC 5 processor is approximately 6 times quicker compared to the DIGIC 4 which implies it could carry out more separate computations, on a pixel-to-pixel basis, immediately after an image is recorded. In the Canon EOS Rebel T4i digital SLR, the DIGIC 5 processor raises continuous speed from 3.7 FPS to 5 FPS. This makes it an excellent camera for Soccer Moms and Nascar Dads who wish to capture the action at the race and the match-and to capture fast children and pets. The processor also handles noise much better, which enables the Canon T4i to shoot at a greater ISO sensitivity. The full sensitivity range of the Canon EOS T4i has been increased to a maximum of ISO 25600 (the native range is ISO 100-12800). That is actually a full stop greater than the Canon T3i's standard and expandable settings (6,400 and 12,800 respectively). For the first time in a Canon EOS DSLR, the Canon EOS T4i features Canon's brand-new Movie Servo AF for recording video clip. Auto-focus in video mode is something many consumer-level users have been requesting for, so this will likely be very well received. This technological breakthrough enables the new EOS Rebel T4i to achieve AF while still retaining a DSLR camera's signature background blur and picture quality, producing sensational video clips of parties, events, summer holidays or college graduations. When shooting video with Canon's STM lenses, AF also remains quiet, helping ensure you only catch the sound of the situation being taped. There's also now a stereo mic on the top deck in front of the hot shoe, and support for high-speed, high-capacity UHS-I SDXC storage cards. The T4i is the first DSLR to have a finger-friendly 3-inch display that also flips out 180-degrees. Like the iPhone and iPad, the Canon EOS T4i's LCD is a capacitive touchscreen, and it therefore needs just a touch rather than a press to work. The touchscreen could be used just as you 'd anticipate on a smartphone: touch to focus for stills and videos, touch to fire off the shutter, swiping to search photos, pinch to zoom in and out. The T4i is going to make DSLRs a whole lot less menacing. The screen boasts an enormous 1040K dot resolution which has the advantage of making any shot look immediately fantastic. The Canon EOS T4i is a really well-rounded DSLR which could be utilized in numerous varieties of situation. The spectacular range of features are definite pluses to considering this camera. Because it's fairly uncomplicated to utilize, you can utilize this camera to capture wonderful images despite the fact that you have no experience in photography.

Photography Tips For Weddings At Sea

Written by

Most couples these days like to have a wedding by the sea. It could either mean a beach wedding, or weddings on a cruise or a yacht. Whatever is the case, it is often a challenge for the photographer to take care of his equipment (from the sand and the water), and also get the right shots amongst so many wedding guests.

Here are a few tips to help you capture weddings at sea beautifully.

Go wide

Even though weddings are all about capturing the right emotions and get candid shots of people with close-ups and portrait shots, when it comes to sea weddings, you must cash on the beautiful landscape and take advantage of the surroundings. So don’t forget to take along your wide lenses, to get the right feel of the sea and the beach, as that will help you add a great aesthetic feel to your pictures.
Play with silhouettes

With the sun shining bright during the day, you will get innumerable chances to play with shadows and silhouettes. Make sure that you use it to your advantage, because the same shadows and silhouettes around the shining seawater seem great. You can also get nice light rays and other beautiful light effects in your pictures.
Add more color

With the blue water and the sandy beaches, you can get decent subtle colors in your pictures. However, since you are covering weddings, and not landscapes, you must ensure that your compositions bring more color to the photographs, by means of right foregrounding and background. Look for the greens in the plants, or the colors in the flowers and the decorations. In other words, make your pictures more vibrant with smart choice of combinations.
Take some monochrome shots

You’ll get beautiful monochrome shots when you are on the beach. Make sure you capture the sea waves and the splashes well. The shots will also come out nice during sunset or sunrise. For night weddings however, you may only get good monochromatic shots if the lighting is good, or if you have an assistant to help you with an umbrella or an extra flash etc.
Don’t miss out the sky

Weddings at sea are your opportunity to get sunrise, sunset and all the beautiful changing colors in the sky as the sun moves and the hours pass by. Try and capture these beautiful colors well, by incorporating the sky in a lot of your pictures. For night shots however, make sure that you somehow control the settings and bounce off the extra lights, such that they don’t land directly on the subjects.

Needless to say, you need to keep your equipment safe all the time, so get rain and dust proof covers for your camera and lenses. Take your tripod along to get good group shots; though don’t rely on it fully. The more you move around and spot great shots on your own, the better variety you’ll get. And maximize on natural light as much as you can. Work on aperture priority in cases where the light in the sky keeps changing frequently.

She also does freelance photography and says it is always a pleasure to work with the Bristol wedding photographers as they are fun to work with.


Found footage films have become one of the latest and greatest fads in Hollywood, it all started back in 1999 with the release and subsequently huge success of ‘The Blair Witch Project’, it was hyped as the scariest film you will ever see and really generated a huge amount of press exposure. 8 years on in 2007 the genre was rebooted this time with ‘Paranormal Activity’, again it was billed as one of the scariest films you will ever see but this time instead of just being a handheld camera they also used static CCTV cameras. The film was rumoured to cost a grand total of $15,000 to make which by normal movie standards is minute bearing in mind that even straight to DVD, low budget, C-rate movies have a budget of well over $1million. It went on to gross $107million and has lead to 3 prequels and sequels being made with more to come. It left film studios scrambling to try and get the next big hit, they knew even if they went to town on the movie it would still only cost them about $100k so they could afford to invest in 15 or 20 films for the price of one normal one and only needed one to succeed.

The biggest effect the genre has had on cinema is that it means your average person can make their own film, as long as they have reasonable editing skills and a good idea they can put together a good little movie for barely any money. One of the most notable found footage films recently was an Australian movie called ‘The Tunnel’. It was going to cost $135,000 (AUS) to make and was ‘crowd-funded’ meaning the makers sold individual digital frames of the film for $1 each to members of the public to raise funds. They only managed to raise a total of $36,000 this way however which meant they had to get creative and use public areas such as disused underground tunnels and a public pool and subsequently shot the whole film in 14 days. They released the film at various cinemas, had a theatrical DVD release but most notably put it on Bit Torrent for free so that users could watch it legally and choose to donate if they wished.

This is all to show that it is possible to make your own film on a shoestring budget from home and make it a huge success. In terms of the equipment needed to attempt to do this yourself you need to start off with some good quality CCTV cameras. Your choice of camera will depend on what type of film you are making i.e. a film based at night will require an infra red, night vision camera that are best at short range, if you are making a daytime film then you can look at long range cameras and dome cameras enabling you to control them via remote making the film making process much easier. The DVR systems are the key part of the movie making process, you need to make sure you get a DVR with enough inputs to attach all of your cameras. Depending on how you are going to edit your movie afterward you also need to take in to consideration what recording capabilities it has, for example, will you be editing it on your computer in which case a USB mass storage device would be best or you may want to record directly to DVD.Making Movie Image

Once you have filmed your movie and got it on DVD/USB comes the editing stage. It is useful to have a laptop with plenty of RAM and a decent processor for film editing, this makes the process much faster and more bearable. The size and budget of your movie will depend on what editing software you use, Windows Live Movie Maker is an excellent free piece of software that will be on your laptop and is good for home movies. If you are looking for a more professional version with more options then take a look at some software like Magix Vide Pro X4 or Lightworks if you want a good free piece. You now have everything you need to get out and make movies so give it a go and get them sent off to a few studios, you never know what might happen!

How to Choose a Photography Tutorial

Written by

Technique and Passion

There is more to photography than picking up a camera and taking a photograph. With each image that you take, technique and passion must shine through. For this you need to find a well structured photography tutorial and learn about the art of taking photographs.

Most tutorials will cover the pieces of equipment that will be essential and the basics of photography.

Beyond that, you will need to also learn important things like composition, colour, exposure and lighting. That is because they will impact the images that you produce.

Photography Terms You Must Know

When you are browsing photography tutorials, you are going to find that there are some terms that are commonly used. It is important that you understand them to ensure you take away the most from the learning experience.

Shutter Speed- Often listed as a fraction, this is the length of time the shutter stays open.

Aperture- You may find this listed as the F stop. This is how much light enters the lens.

Depth of Field- Controlled though the use of F stops, this is the amount of distance within the subject that is in focus.

ISO- The higher the ISO, the more sensitive your lens will be to light. This can create grainy images. Typically, higher ISOs are going to be found in faster shutter speeds.

Manual- An adjustable camera setting that will allow you to manipulate everything from ISO to the speed of your shutters and even the aperture.

Focus- If you have a point and shoot, this is the area that is outlined in the box. Often, this term will be used to describe the area that will be in focus and sharpest in a photography.

Flash- There are plenty of types of flash, the term though is a reference to the light burst that comes from the camera.

Shooting Speed- Typically used to describe the number of exposures that your camera will take, as you push down the shutter.

Don't Limit the Tutorials You Explore

One of the biggest mistakes people make when they look at photography tutorials is that they focus in on a single area. Not only will you want to explore the tricks to taking perfect photographs, but you will also want to pay attention to the theory of photography.

Expert photography is a skill that is learned over time. As you practice and study, you will learn new tricks that will help you to capture amazing photographs that people will notice.

Light: The Determinant of Good or Bad Photography

Written by

Why is lighting important anyway?

We've all seen a pictures of a wedding with sunbeams shining behind the couple or maybe of a room in a home improvement catalog in which the flooring looks too good to be true. What is it about these pictures that separates them from the average picture of a kitchen or family event? Simple, its the lighting. Depending on the lighting, your picture could end up having a completely different feel to it.

In the first picture below, the tiger is completely illuminated in broad daylight. But the second picture was taken closer to sunset when the light is more indirect. Both images are very similar; the tiger is in water and looking at the camera. The second picture, however, has a much warmer appearance to it than the first.

 bengal tiger image bengal tiger image

Alright, that's nice. But how does this apply to me? I don't photograph tigers. . .

Photographing in sunlight is very different than it is in other settings. In indoor studios, the photographer can practically set up any lighting arrangement imaginable. The sun, however, obviously does not move when or where you want it to. I'll provide you with some basic guidelines on how approach photographing in the light (particularly sunlight) and with a little explanation about why any of these tips works.

First off, angles. You're always hearing professionals talk about lighting angles, and that's because it really makes a difference. Here's why: depending on where the light is hitting your photo-subject (what exactly is being lit-up), different aspects of the picture will be highlighted, which is going to make your picture look completely different.

The two most commonly used terms when talking about lighting are 'broad' and 'narrow.' Broad lighting does what the name implies; it gives more light to a larger area of the scene. This is essentially the effect the flash from a camera will give you. The light source is coming from the same angle the picture is being taken, causing what you are photographing to be lit fairly evenly across its frontmost surface. Narrow light does the opposite. It comes at an angle to create harder shadows. Now, how does this apply if you're outside? The sun is a pretty intense source of light, no? What occurs with intense sources of light is they tend to produce very high-contrast pictures; deep colors become overly vibrant, pale shades come out bland, and shadows just appear black.

To compensate for this and give our pictures some depth, it is common practice to have what we are photographing be at an angle to the sun. But if it's in the middle of the day we are still going to get those very harsh shadows. We can use a flash feature to help soften up those darker areas, but it's often difficult to get the image to look exactly as desired. Canon has this issue covered with their EOS line. The EOS's have a 'fill-flash' feature that will automatically adjust the brightness of the flash to fit the picture.

Now what about early in the morning or late in the evening when the sun is not as direct? These two points in the day are fantastic for photography. This is because the sun is still intense, therefore it still brings out the vibrance of deeper colors, but the light is no longer strong enough to drown out pale colors and leave shadows black.

Featuring Improved Image Quality, a 61-Point High Density Reticular AF, Six fps High-Speed Continuous Shooting and Enhanced HD Video Recording Features

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., March 2, 2012 – On the 25th anniversary of its world-renowned EOS System, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce its latest model, the new EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera. Positioned between the extremely popular EOS 5D Mark II and Canon's top-of-the-line professional EOS-1D X model, the EOS 5D Mark III delivers superb image quality, thanks to a new 22.3-megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, a high-performance DIGIC 5+ Imaging Processor, a 61-point High Density Reticular Autofocus (AF) System and six frames-per-second (fps) continuous shooting speed. Building upon the trailblazing success of the EOS 5D Mark II, the EOS 5D Mark III also incorporates enhanced video features for professionals in the fields of cinematography, television production and documentary filmmaking, including better noise reduction, longer recording times and a built-in headphone jack for audio monitoring. The EOS 5D Mark III is Canon's answer to hundreds of thousands of advanced amateurs and emerging professionals looking for a compact, high-quality camera system to help them achieve their artistic vision, whether it be through still or video imagery. The EOS 5D Mark III introduction coincides with Canon's 25th anniversary celebration of the EOS camera system. Canon's award-winning EOS system first debuted in March of 1987 with the introduction of the EOS 650 SLR camera and three EF lenses.

"We are extremely excited to announce the highly anticipated follow-up to our EOS 5D Mark II, a camera which has been called a 'game-changer' in most professional photography and videography circles. The EOS 5D Mark III will carry on that tradition, delivering better and more advanced features, helping our customers achieve excellent image quality for stills and video," stated Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies and Communications Group, Canon U.S.A.

The EOS 5D Mark III inherits many features from Canon's recently announced flagship DSLR, the EOS-1D X, including a DIGIC 5+ Imaging Processor and a high-performance 61-point High Density Reticular AF array with up to 41 cross-type points and five dual cross-type points available, depending on the lens in use. The enhanced processing power enables fast continuous shooting of up to six fps, exceeding the speed of the EOS 5D Mark II model by more than 50 percent, and with improved weather resistance the EOS 5D Mark III is a serious option for sports and wildlife photographers.

EOS 5D Mark III Video: The Legacy Continues

The EOS 5D Mark II blazed the trail for EOS cameras and Canon to enter the professional video and cinema markets, paving the way for Canon's recent introduction of the Cinema EOS system of cameras and lenses. Now, the EOS 5D Mark III continues Canon's commitment to these new markets with new and requested features from cinematographers, television production professionals and independent filmmakers. This new model captures 1080p Full HD video at 24p (23.976), 25p, and 30p (29.97) fps; 720p HD recording at 60 (59.94) and 50 fps; and SD recording at 30 (29.97) and 25 fps, giving cinematographers and videographers more flexibility and options for video capture.

The EOS 5D Mark III includes new H.264 video compression formats to simplify and speed up post-production work: intraframe (ALL-I) compression for an editing-friendly format and interframe (IPB) compression for superior data storage efficiency, giving professionals options to help achieve their ideal workflow. Like the EOS-1D X, the 5D Mark III also includes two methods of SMPTE-compliant timecode embedding, Rec Run and Free Run, allowing video footage from multiple cameras and separate audio recordings to be synced together in post production.

The new full-frame CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5+ processor have enhanced the camera's image processing performance over the 5D Mark II, significantly reducing moir‚ and color artifacts in scenes with horizontal lines. The video footage produced will exhibit less moir‚ than seen in previous DSLR models, resulting in a significant improvement in HD video quality. Accommodating documentary filmmakers, and event videographers using EOS DSLR cameras, the 5D Mark III includes the ability to record video continuously up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds across multiple 4GB files. Long-form filmmakers will enjoy the camera's automatic file splitting in combination with the extended memory capacity offered by dual card slots.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III also includes manual audio level control with 64 levels, adjustable both before and during movie recording. There is also an automatic audio level setting, or sound recording can be turned off entirely. A wind filter is also included. Sound can be recorded either through the internal monaural microphone or via an optional external microphone through the stereo mic input. Notably, the EOS 5D Mark III is the first EOS Digital SLR to feature a built-in headphone jack for real-time audio monitoring during video capture.

Newly Developed Canon CMOS Sensor

With its completely new 22.3-megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS image sensor, the EOS 5D Mark III becomes the highest resolution Canon Digital SLR released to date. It is eminently suitable for a wide variety of assignments including weddings and portraits, nature and wildlife, travel and landscapes as well as commercial and industrial photography. With a gapless microlens design, a new photodiode structure and improved on-chip noise reduction, the new sensor achieves higher sensitivity and lower noise levels for both RAW image data as well as in-camera JPEGs and EOS Movies compared to the 5D Mark II. The result is outstanding image quality in all shooting conditions, even low light. An eight-channel readout doubles the speed of image data throughput from the sensor to the DIGIC 5+ processor, resulting in better video image quality as well as six fps for still photos.

The low-light capability of the EOS 5D Mark III is evident in its incredible ISO range and image quality in poor lighting conditions. Adjustable from ISO 100 to 25,600 within its standard range, the new model also offers a low ISO 50 setting for studio and landscape photography and two extended ISO settings of 51,200 and 102,400, well suited for law enforcement, government or forensic field applications.

The new 5D Mark III is also equipped with Canon's EOS Integrated Cleaning System, featuring a Self Cleaning Sensor Unit with a fluorine coating that repels dust and dirt particles.

Canon-Exclusive DIGIC 5+ Imaging Processor

The EOS 5D Mark III's new DIGIC 5+ Imaging Processor is 17 times faster than the DIGIC 4.The EOS 5D Mark III uses that extra speed not only for improved image quality, but also to add no less than nine new features that do not exist on the 5D Mark II. These new features include six fps continuous shooting, HDR and Multiple Exposure modes, in-camera RAW processing, a comparative playback function, Scene Intelligent Auto mode, two forms of movie compression, and support for high-speed UDMA 7 Compact Flash memory cards.

Another extremely valuable feature enhanced by the DIGIC 5+ Imaging Processor is the EOS 5D Mark III's choice of reduced resolution M-RAW (10.5 megapixel) and S-RAW (5.5 megapixel) recording modes. These settings are particularly useful to wedding photographers for candid photos that do not require the EOS 5D Mark III's 22 megapixel full resolution, because they take up less space on the memory cards and speed up post-processing without losing the critical benefits of RAW image data, such as highlight and shadow control as well as white balance adjustment. M-RAW and S-RAW also preserve the full field of view rather than cropping the image or resorting to JPEG mode to reduce resolution.

High-Performance 61-Point High Density Reticular AF

For still photographers, Canon has included its new 61-point High Density Reticular AF System, originally introduced with the top-of-the-line EOS-1D X professional camera. A significant advancement over previous 5D-series AF systems, the new 61-Point High Density Reticular AF included in the EOS 5D Mark III is the most sophisticated SLR AF system Canon has ever released. All 61 points are manually selectable and sensitive to horizontal contrast with maximum apertures larger than or equal to f/5.6. The camera's twenty one focusing points in the central area are also standard precision cross-type and effective with maximum apertures larger than or equal to f/5.6. The center five points are ultra-high-precision diagonal cross-type points for maximum apertures larger than or equal to f/2.8. The 20 outer focusing points function as high-precision cross-type points with maximum apertures larger than or equal to f/4.0. Other innovations of the new 61-point High Density Reticular AF include expanded AF coverage area, superior focusing precision and low-light sensitivity to EV -2, and greater low-contrast subject detection capability compared to earlier EOS AF systems. (See image below for AF point configuration)

High-Performance 61-Point High Density Reticular AF

All AF functions now have their own menu tab for quick and easy access (formerly AF custom functions in previous EOS models). A new AF Configuration Tool allows for customized setting of tracking sensitivity, the acceleration and deceleration of tracking subjects, and AF point auto switching, all of which are easily accessed and adjusted via the new AF menu tab. A built-in Feature Guide advises photographers on which settings to use according to subject matter.

The EOS 5D Mark III uses the same high-performance AI Servo III AF tracking algorithm as the flagship EOS-1D X professional DSLR. This new feature works together with the 61-point High Density Reticular AF system to provide superb tracking performance that blends very well with the new camera's 6 frames-per-second high-speed continuous shooting capabilities.

Similar to the AF point selection options offered in the EOS 7D and EOS-1D X camera models, the EOS 5D Mark III offers six AF point selection modes: Spot, Single Point, Single Point with surrounding four points, Single Point with surrounding eight points, Zone selection and Automatic AF point selection.

iFCL Metering

Complementing the EOS 5D Mark III camera's 61-point AF system is Canon's 63-zone iFCL dual layer metering system. The 'FCL' stands for 'Focus, Color and Luminance,' and references the fact that the metering system not only measures color and luminance data, but also analyzes the data provided by each point of the AF system. Canon's iFCL metering keeps exposure levels stable from shot to shot, even as the light source changes. The camera's autofocus information is also used to help determine which area of the scene is of greatest importance in determining exposure.

HDR Mode

The EOS 5D Mark III camera features a built-in HDR mode, merging three images at various exposure levels into a single image, in-camera, for stunning photographs of landscapes and architecture with enhanced tonal gradation beyond the range of the naked eye. The exposure levels in the camera's HDR mode can be set to cover a range of up to ñ3 stops, in a choice of five settings: Natural, Art Standard, Art Vivid, Art Bold and Art Embossed providing unique visual effects. Individual source images can be saved as separate files, and the HDR mode has an optional automatic alignment function that can be useful for hand-held shooting. The EOS 5D Mark III's standard Auto Exposure Bracketing function has been upgraded to allow for up to seven exposures per sequence, and exposure compensation can now be set for up to +/- 5EV.

Multiple Exposure Mode

The EOS 5D Mark III is the second EOS Digital SLR after the EOS-1D X to feature Multiple Exposure capabilities with the ability to combine up to nine individual images into a single composite image, with no need for post-processing in a computer. Four different compositing methods are provided for maximum creative control, including Additive, Average, Bright and Dark. Compositing results can be viewed in real time on the camera's LCD monitor, and there is a one-step Undo command that allows photographers to delete an image and try again if desired. The EOS 5D Mark III camera's Multiple Exposure mode even allows photographers to specify a previously captured RAW image as the starting point for a new Multiple Exposure composite image, or shoot continuously when photographing moving subjects.

Comparative Playback

A new feature seen for the first time in the EOS System on the 5D Mark III is Comparative Playback allowing photographers to display two images side by side on the camera's 3.2-inch LCD screen. The images can be displayed with a histogram to check exposure levels, or magnified to check for focus or facial expressions.

Durability, Reliability and Other Features

The EOS 5D Mark III features a rugged camera body with magnesium alloy body covers and a stainless steel lens mount. The new camera also has dust- and moisture-resistant design with improved gaskets and seals. Although not quite as weatherproof as an EOS-1D-series camera, the EOS 5D Mark III does feature improved weather resistance over the EOS 5D Mark II model. The EOS 5D Mark III's newly developed shutter unit has a durability rating of 150,000 exposures, and shutter release lag time has been reduced to 59 milliseconds, making the shutter button very responsive. Canon's locking mode dial is standard on the new model and a new custom function allows photographers to shut off other dials to prevent inadvertent operation.

The EOS 5D Mark III uses the same LP-E6 lithium-ion battery pack as other popular EOS cameras like the 5D Mark II, 7D and 60D. Battery life is estimated at 950 exposures at normal temperatures, an improvement of 100 exposures more than the EOS 5D Mark II. The EOS 5D Mark III body weighs approximately 33.5 oz. with a battery installed, and the dimensions are approximately 6.0 x 4.6 x 3.0 inches.

The EOS 5D Mark III incorporates Silent shooting modes, available for low-speed continuous shooting as well as single exposures. This feature is ideal when photographing in quiet environments. For better file management especially when working with multiple cameras, the new model also supports custom file names. There is also a new image rating feature that lets photographers rank their photos from 1 to 5 stars for quick editing.

The EOS 5D Mark III features a 3.2-inch Clear View II LCD screen with 1,040,000 dot resolution. This is the same screen that's used in the top-of-the-line EOS-1D X. The camera's optical viewfinder has been upgraded to approximately 100 percent coverage, and it features an Intelligent Viewfinder display with an optional grid on demand. The EOS 5D Mark III also has a built-in Dual Axis Electronic Level that can be displayed on both the LCD screen and the optical viewfinder.

The EOS 5D Mark III accepts both Compact Flash Type 1 and SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards in a dual card slot configuration. Three recording methods are supported: Record the same data to both cards, record different file sizes or types to each card, or automatically switch to the second card when the first card is full.


The EOS 5D Mark III DSLR also has a number of new optional accessories, including the new Canon Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E7A featuring wireless LAN support for 802.11 a/b/g/n signal protocols for various network environments. The WFT-E7A connects to the camera through its USB port and includes a built-in gigabit Ethernet connection, time syncing for multiple cameras on the same network, FTP mode, EOS Utility mode, WFT Server mode and Media Server mode. With this new WFT model, professionals can synchronize clocks on multiple cameras and use the unit to support linked shooting when utilizing multiple cameras. In addition, Bluetooth-compatible equipment can be easily linked to the device as well.

The EOS 5D Mark III also has an optional Canon GPS Receiver GP-E2, which can be connected to the camera via the accessory shoe or a USB cable. With a GPS logging function built-in, the GP-E2 will log latitude, longitude, elevation, and the Universal Time Code - and allow viewing of camera movement on a PC after shooting. With its built-in compass, the GP-E2 receiver will also record camera direction when shooting, even when shooting vertically. The Canon GPS Receiver GP-E2 is compatible with the EOS-1D X and EOS 7Di as well as the EOS 5D Mark III.ii

Battery Grip BG-E11 is an optional accessory for the EOS 5D Mark III that accepts one or two LP-E6 lithium-ion battery packs or a set of six AA-size batteries. This new grip has a multicontroller and a multifunction (M.Fn) button together a with a full set of grip controls for easy operation when shooting portraits or other vertical format photos. The BG-E11 is made from sturdy magnesium alloy and has the same degree of weather resistance as the EOS 5D Mark III.

Speedlite 600EX-RT

In addition to the EOS 5D Mark III, Canon is also announcing the first professional Speedlite on the market with a built-in wireless radio transmitter, the new Speedlite 600EX-RT. The new Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT is the flagship model in the Speedlite line, ideal for wedding portrait and photojournalism. Compatible with all EOS Digital SLRs, this new model eliminates the need for accessory radio slave units and their inherent limitations. Speedlite 600EX-RT features Master-Slave two-way transmission, letting the photographer control the Speedlite settings directly from the "Master" camera.

Radio-based Wireless E-TTL can be performed with up to 15 Speedlite 600EX-RT "slave units", used off-camera up to 98.4 feet (30m) away, and triggered by either a "Master" 600EX-RT on-camera, or the optional new Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT. Used with the EOS 5D Mark III or EOS-1D X, up to five groups of flashes can be completely controlled, independently, off-camera. And, it remains fully compatible with Canon's legacy optical-based Wireless E-TTL technology, for users already committed to existing EOS Speedlites. The Speedlite features enhanced weather-resistant construction - matching that of the EOS-1D X camera body - and a more reliable electrical contact. The flash head zoom range now reaches from 20mm to 200mm.The Speedlite also allows remote shutter release of a single EOS camera, or Linked Shooting (simultaneous firing of up to 15 cameras, when one "Master" camera is fired), and includes gelatin filters and a dedicated filter holder to help photographers match ambient light.

Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT

Canon is also introducing the new Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT. Providing full support of Canon's new radio-based wireless flash technology, the new ST-E3-RT can control up to five groups of flashes, up to 98.4 feet (30m) from the camera. The remote shutter release capability enables photographers to either fire a single camera remotely (by pressing a button on the ST-E3-RT), or to fire up to 15 EOS cameras with Canon's Linked Shooting feature. Making it easy to control and adjust, all of the Speedlite Transmitter features are accessible through the Flash control menu of the EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III cameras.

Written by

London, UK, 7th February 2012 – Canon today adds to its premium IXUS range with the launch of two new outstanding touch screen models – the IXUS 510 HS and the IXUS 240 HS. Fusing first-class design with Canon's signature image quality and new Wi-Fi functionality, both models make it easier than ever to shoot photos and Full HD movies in exceptional detail and share them instantly with friends and family. Combining a high quality and compact 12x optical zoom with a highly-pocketable, luxurious and chic design, the IXUS 510 HS is the perfect take anywhere camera for style-conscious users, while the IXUS 240 HS's slim and elegant design and fun functionality are ideal for shooting and sharing images, anytime and anywhere.

Quality meets design

Canon's advanced imaging technology ensures superb results, no matter the subject being shot or the conditions. Both models feature cutting-edge genuine Canon lens technology, enabling the capture of sweeping vistas or distant detail with the powerful zooms in each camera. The IXUS 510 HS's impressive 28mm wide-angle 12x optical zoom lens packs into a body measuring just 19.8 mm front-to-back, while the IXUS 240 HS's 24mm ultra-wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens comes in a high-grade, super-slim body – offering exceptional quality and versatility. Canon's ZoomPlus technology means users can extend the zoom of their camera and get even closer to the action, while maintaining higher quality than traditional digital zoom. With ZoomPlus, the IXUS 510 HS' zoom extends beyond its 12x optical zoom to 21x, while the IXUS 240 HS reaches past its 5x optical zoom to 10x.

The IXUS 510 HS and IXUS 240 HS also feature Canon's Intelligent IS, providing advanced image stabilisation that offers the freedom to shoot a range of subjects with confidence. Harnessing each model's 3.5-stop optical Image Stabilizer, Intelligent IS rapidly analyses the shooting scene and automatically adjusts the camera's settings, selecting from seven1 different stabilisation modes to ensure photos and movies remain clear and with minimal blur.

Powered by Canon's HS System, which optimally combines high resolution, highsensitivity CMOS sensors with next-generation DIGIC 5 processing, both models offer image quality that reflects what the eye sees. Offering supreme performance in all conditions, and especially in low light, both the IXUS 510 HS and IXUS 240 HS allow users to capture and share experiences with incredible levels of detail and clarity.

Sharing made easy

With the new models, users can instantly share their favourite images and movies, whenever and wherever they may be thanks to new integrated Wi-Fi connectivity2. The new CameraWindow application allows photos and movies to be wirelessly transferred directly to a range of Apple iOS3 mobile devices for instant sharing on the move. Using the same application, users can also share photos via email, upload them to Facebook with their own comments, or even upload movies to YouTube™.

Also launching today with the new IXUS models is the newly designed and enhanced CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, Canon's online facility for sharing photos and video. Now providing up to 10 GB of personal storage capacity, it is perfect for storing many photos, even in full resolution. An easy interface allows users to search for images, create combined photo and movie Albums that can receive comments from friends, and to share Albums directly via email and Social Networking Sites. With the new Wi-Fi IXUS models, photos can be uploaded directly to the CANON iMAGE GATEWAY without the need for a computer, using just the cameras' wireless menus and home wireless networks.

Complete control at your fingertips

Both models feature large, bright and vibrant 8.0 cm (3.2") PureColor II Touch LCD displays with sharp 460,000-dot resolution, giving exceptional colours and accurate contrast. They are ideal for reviewing newly-captured images and movies and showcasing them to friends. The highly responsive touch navigation and customisable on-screen icons provide quick, easy access to camera settings, menus and a user's entire photo collection, so photos can be quickly selected to upload to social networks and comments even typed in. The touchscreen also powers Canon's Touch Shutter functionality which makes it possible to compose and shoot with a single touch of the screen.

Point and shoot creativity

For those who like to point and shoot for excellent images, Canon's latest Smart Auto mode now identifies up to 58 different scenes.

The new Face Identification (Face ID) functionality included within Smart Auto enables users to get the best possible shots of friends and family, making it easy to capture tricky subjects with new levels of clarity. Face ID allows users to register family faces and their birthdays within the camera, it then stores this information, and with Smart Auto adjusts image settings accordingly. For example, when taking a picture of a sleeping baby, Face ID will identify the subject, automatically disengage the flash and adjust the exposure to give the image a brighter feel. If a child over the age of two is identified, the camera will automatically engage Servo AF in anticipation of movement, enabling sharper pictures of children that are often difficult to capture. Users can even browse their photos in-camera by name, so images of their friends and family can be easily and quickly searched and reviewed.

Each model also features Multi-area White Balance which detects multiple light sources and corrects the colour balance for each, delivering natural images in challenging conditions featuring multiple light sources. An enhanced range of creative shooting modes also expands the gamut of effects users can explore, with two new modes added. In addition to Toy Camera, Miniature and Fish-eye Effect, new Smooth Skin Effect improves portraits by smoothing out skin textures, while Soft Focus Effect simulates the dreamy effect provided by a dedicated soft-focus lens. Both new modes offer three effect levels, enabling the user to pick a level to suit the subject.

High resolution stills, high defintion video

In addition to exceptional stills, the new IXUS 510 HS and IXUS 240 HS feature Full HD (1080p) movie recording with stereo sound. A dedicated movie record button enables instant switching from stills to movies, while optical zoom can also be utilised in both cameras in movies. Integrated HDMI connectivity also enables sharing with friends and family using HD TV screens. To help tell the story behind a day's images, Movie Digest mode captures four seconds of movie before each still shot is taken and then merges all the clips together in HD (720p) quality for a fun reminder of the day's events.

The IXUS 510 HS: Seriously compact, catwalk style

As well as offering stand-out image quality, the IXUS 510 HS takes IXUS style to a new high. With a 10.1MP high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and exceptional 12x optical zoom, users can enjoy the flexibility to capture a range of subjects in exceptional quality, and then share images instantly using the integrated Wi-Fi connectivity. Revisiting the classic style of the original IXUS design, the IXUS 510 HS's sleek, sharp-edged exterior truly epitomises the IXUS luxury design philosophy, offering a stylish, compact body that can be taken anywhere. The futuristic lens cover and striking glossy black or matte white finish also adds to the premium styling.

The IXUS 240 HS: Exceptional style and ease-of-use

Combining advanced features with effortless functionality, the IXUS 240 HS is perfect for anyone looking for a camera that fuses style with substance. Its 16.1 MP resolution offers exceptional detail, while its ultra-wide angle 24mm 5x optical zoom genuine Canon lens offers great flexibility that can be carried in virtually any pocket.
