Best Canon gear of the year: fantastic cameras, lenses and flashguns from Canon

Everything just gets better in 2021! From budget-friendly beginners’ cameras, to exotic lenses, dazzling flash kits, tricked-up tripods and beyond, we’ve seen some fabulous gear from Canon this year. 

Looking for the best Canon camera? Canon has launched some stunning models in its photographic line-up. Other manufacturers including Benro, Elinchrom and Manfrotto, to name but a few, have also really impressed us.

Canon EOS M50

The Canon EOS M50 mirrorless system camera is compact and lightweight, and we love its retracting 15-45mm kit lens, which delivers excellent wide-angle potential. Despite its size, the M50 feels like a ‘proper’ camera, with its electronic viewfinder and sculpted finger grip. Around the back, the fully articulated ‘vari-angle’ touchscreen makes for slick and intuitive control. We’re also impressed that the 24MP Dual Pixel AF image sensor ensures rapid autofocus and great image quality.

Canon EOS 1500D with 18-55mm Lens

We like that the Canon EOS 1500D with 18-55mm Lens small and lightweight enough to take anywhere and everywhere and that it’s so simple to use. The vari-angle screen enables novel shooting angles, injecting fun into photography. 

And when we’re in a more serious shooting mood, the dual control dials and top-panel info LCD come to the fore, as featured on enthusiast-level cameras. 

Super specs include a Dual Pixel AF image sensor, 45-point autofocus system, a 5-axis sensor-shift stabilizer for movies, Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth. We love having so much packed into such a small DSLR.

Canon EOS 6D Mark II 

Initial reaction to the Canon EOS 6D Mark II from some quarters suggested the tonal range and high-ISO noise suppression weren’t as good as from the original 6D, but there’s very little in it and the Mark II has 30% more megapixels under the bonnet. Advertisementhttps://677fe3ed51b5759dab891473293b0346.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html

Both autofocus systems are massively better, with phase-detection AF rising from 11 points (only one cross-type) to 45 points (all cross-type), while Dual Pixel AF makes for vastly improved autofocus in live view and movie capture. 

The latter also benefits from in-camera stabilization, while other improvements include a vari-angle touchscreen and a faster 6.5fps burst rate. All in all, it’s a fabulous camera and the EF 24-105mm IS STM kit lens is well worth having.

LENSES

Canon EF 35mm

The Canon EF 35mm has excellent image quality, compact and lightweight built, and the inclusion of image stabilization makes it a top choice for street photography when using a full-frame. The same combo of highlights also makes it a superb ‘standard prime’ for APS-C format DSLRs, on which it has an effective focal length of 56mm. This gives a very natural viewing perspective, compared with the more wide-angle view that it delivers on a full-frame camera.

Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS II USM Lens

The Mark II edition of this lens has been the go-to telephoto for top professional photographers around the world, since 2010. It’s so good that the brand new Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM adds very little. Unlike Canon’s new 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM, there are no improvements in the autofocus and stabilization systems, and the glass remains essentially the same. The key upgrade is that a high-tech ASC (Air Sphere Coating) is applied to the 19th element in the optical path, which further reduces ghosting and flare. Fluorine coatings are also added to the front and rear elements, to repel moisture and grease. It’s still the best Canon-fit 70-200mm lens on the market, and now it’s just a little better.

FLASHGUNS

Canon Speedlite 320EX

Canon Speedlite 320EX II is a versatile flash that includes an LED light on the front that can be used as a modeling light, an AF assist beam during Live View shooting, or to light up nearby subjects in low light for video recording. It will provide up to 4 hours of continuous lighting with fully-charged AA batteries. The 320EX is E-TTL- and E-TTL II-compatible using Type-A EOS cameras, and it has a guide number of 78.7?/24m @100 ISO at 24mm.

Canon Macro Twin Lite MT-26EX-RT

For close-up shooting with a macro lens, a regular flashgun can yield awful results with harsh shadows. This revamped and rejuvenated ‘Macro Twin Lite’ solves the problem. The control unit slots into the hotshoe of a camera, and the two miniature flash heads clip onto a mounting ring that attaches to the front of most Canon macro lenses. Adaptors are available for other lenses with filter threads of between 52mm and 72mm. We like that the redesigned control panel is more intuitive, and that the use of two independent flash heads enables wide-ranging close-up lighting techniques. It beats ring lights which give completely shadow-free results that can look flat and two-dimensional. We also love the high-intensity LED lamps which can be a real help when focusing.

Canon Announces Firmware Updates for R5 & R6

Canon R5 and R6 are all getting firmware updates—Canon software will also receive updates.

Canon announced the immediate release of firmware updates of its high-end cameras, adding several features that users have been asking for.  Two of Canon’s most recent releases, the EOS R5 and R6 cameras, will be getting firmware updates v1.3 and v1.3, respectively—the firmware updates are not identical. Both cameras, which were released over this past summer, are part of Canon’s high-end line of full-frame mirrorless cameras.

Increased image quality and usability

The Canon EOS R5 will benefit from a number of upgrades including Full HD 120p and support for greater customization of the camera. Users will now able to save personalized and preferred camera settings to a memory card, which can be copied across to a different camera or used when settings are adjusted. There is also the option to turn the LCD monitor off during shooting and use it for playback only, providing a familiar DSLR-style operation. For both the EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6, the firmware achieves full-time manual support for RF lenses, allowing photographers to override the focus of RF lenses manually when in Servo AF mode.

Streamlined professional workflows

For the EOS R5, professional photographers can safeguard and quickly share photos with the new Protect Image Transfer function allowing protected images to be locked – preventing them from accidentally being deleted – and transferred via FTP. Across the EOS R5, professionals can now see FTP Transfer status on the display clearly showing how long it will take to transfer pictures.

Enhanced video functionality

This firmware enables low-bit rate RAW movies reducing the size of RAW video files making file transfer faster for the EOS R5. The update also provides enhanced video capabilities for the EOS R5 with the addition of Canon Log 3 – the log gamma curve used by all Canon Cinema EOS cameras enabling greater dynamic range, superior colour editing capabilities, and easier file management. For even greater flexibility of filming formats across all cameras, this firmware unlocks a lower bit rate IPB movie option creating small, easily shareable video files.

Following the release of the R5 and R6 cameras last year, it quickly became clear that both cameras suffered from an overheating issue when recording high-resolution video. Firmware updates were quickly released to address the overheating issue on both mirrorless cameras, but the controversy surrounding their initial release has cast some doubt on the camera manufacturer. 

The firmware updates are all available right now, as well as the software updates to several different Canon software. The EOS Utility software is receiving update v3.13.1. Canon is providing support for devices using Apple M1 processors. Rosetta for Digital Photo Professional is getting update v4.14.

Canon vs. Nikon vs. Sony vs. Panasonic

Best Camera Brand – Canon vs. Nikon vs. Sony vs Panasonic

When it comes to full package cameras, four brands that come to everyone mind are– Canon, Nikon, Sony and Panasonic. All four brands create brilliant cameras and optics. So the difficult question remains, how would you choose between Canon vs Nikon vs Sony vs Panasonic?

 All four offer excellent cameras for professionals and entry-level options for beginners. But once you used to one brand, switching becomes tough and expensive. You need to swap lenses and flashes too.

Choosing the right brand from the start is very important. To help you make that choice, we have put together all you need to know about Nikon vs Canon vs Sony vs Panasonic.

Canon

Canon has just about every lens you can imagine, including an incredible series of tilt-shift lenses. Canon also covers the entire price spectrum.

Canon bodies also have great ergonomics. They always felt great in my hands, and I really like the new mirrorless EOS R.

So what’s wrong with Canon? Well, I think they can add new features to their camera bodies for more options.

Nikon

There’s nothing horribly wrong with Nikon… but I find it hard to get excited about anything.

The Nikon D850 might be the greatest DSLR ever made, but its new mirrorless Z6 and Z7 cameras just don’t stand out from the pack.

Yes, Nikon makes great lenses, but Canon edges them out in terms of sheer selection and ingenuity.

Sony

Sony releases new cameras so fast that resale value isn’t so great (this is good if you buy used), and the lenses are on the expensive side. Sony lenses have a reputation for being overpriced

Still, pound-for-pound, Sony is the mirrorless King right now — at least until Canon and Nikon release more mirrorless lenses.

Panasonic

Panasonic makes excellent video-centric cameras in both the full-frame (S1 series) and micro 4/3 segments (GH series).

The S1/S1R cameras are freaking enormous. Pentax 67 of mirrorless are even bigger than most DSLR’s! And unfortunately, there are only a small number of lenses available, and they are all expensive.

The micro 4/3 cameras like the GH5 and G85 are very nice, but it is hard to get excited about them outside of video.

Best DSLR Brands for Video? Canon vs Nikon vs Sony vs Panasonic Cameras!

When you are choosing a DSLR for video, it can be difficult to know where to start. There are some BIG differences between the major brands like Panasonic, Sony, Canon and Nikon! Choosing the ‘Best Camera Brand’ is not a clean cut decision though… Which is ‘Best’ is highly subjective, and what works for you may not work so well for others…

While all individual DSLR (and mirrorless) camera models are unique, each of the brands has it’s own approach to software, features and functionality that tend to carry across the range – meaning that some brands are better suited for some requirements and workflows than others.

Whether you are in the market to purchase and looking to compare cameras & DSLR brands to find the best DSLR Camera for you, or you’re happy with your current model and just wondering what it’s like on ‘the other side’, then this video is designed to help provide an additional perspective.

Please let us know do you agree that we are in the golden age of cameras? Also, what brand is more attractive to you.
