Groundbreaking Firmware Update

Canon 7D

Yesterday, Canon announced a fantastic firmware update for the 7D. To my knowledge, this update is the first time that Canon has allowed manual audio levels on a camera that they previously released without that control. This is GREAT news for anyone shooting video with the 7D, and in my opinion, keeps the 7D on the market as a viable camera for a while longer. Kudos to Canon on this one! Now… if they would just follow suit and give me manual audio control on my 1D-Mark 4!

How Good is the iPhone Camera?

I love my new iPhone 4s, and I even love it’s camera. We’ve all seen the sample galleries of pro photographers who have used it for this or that photo shoot, but the question remains… just how good is the camera really? Pop Photo magazine has recent run the iPhone 4s through their camera test lab in an attempt to answer that question. Check out their thoughts here.

Sony A77 Camera Review from Pop Photo

Sony A77 Camera Review from Pop Photo

I still maintain my position of “Canon or Nikon” when it comes to selecting a DSLR camera, but this review from Popular Photography Magazine makes a compelling case for the new Sony A77 DSLR. Camera for camera it provides some stiff competition for the Canon 7D and the Nikon D300s, but adds a few new twists of its own. Hopefully Canon will start to implement some of these into its own series before I have to buy a new camera!
