Canon anunta:

We apologize sincerely for the inconvenience caused to our customers by suspending the availability of the Version 2.0.3 firmware. We are now introducing the Version 2.0.4 firmware.

Customers who have the Version 2.0.3 firmware on their cameras should update the firmware to Version 2.0.4.


TOKYO, March 16, 2010 – Canon Inc. announced today that it will begin the acquisition process for the top-level domain name “.canon,” based on the new generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) registration system.

Asadar, in curand com avea domenii de genul: photo.canon sau office.canon? Tare sunt curios cum isi vor aranja website-ul, poate cu miscarea asta isi amintesc si de ce au lasat pe .ro-ul nostru si mai updateaza/modernizeaza… (aici este newsletter-ul)

In filmuletele de mai sus sunt un Canon F1 si un Canon ELAN 7, toate filmuletele le gasiti aici. De unde imprumutam o jucarie sa filmeze la 1000-2000 de cadre pe secunda? Eu personal mi-as lua concediu sa filmez tot slow motion 😀

Ce vedeti mai sus a fost filmat cu Phantom HD, o jucarie care depaseste pragul psihologic de 100.000$, dar am vazut ca a facut Casio o serie noua de camere foto care pot sa filmeze la 1000fps si sunt de 100 de ori mai ieftine, vezi Casio EX-F1 care poate 1200fps la doar 999usd Hi-Speed Movies:512 x 384 (300 fps), 432 x 192 (600 fps), 336 x 96 (1200 fps) 😀

Ceva asemanator aici, shutter-ul unui Nikon D3, mult mai bine realizat clipul, din punctul de vedere al appletului folosit pentru vizualizarea testului.

Canon anunta in comunicatul de presa de pe data de 29 ianuarie 2010 ca au atins 50 de milioane de obiective EF produse de cand au lansat in 1987 sistemul EOS. Obiectivul cu numarul 50.000.000 este un Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L USM.

In septembrie 2009 Nikon a anuntat acelasi numar de obiective cu montura F, productia acestora incepand in anul 1959.

Istoria obiectivelor EF incepe in 1987 cand au lansat primul obiectiv USM, un 300mm/2.8L dedicat fotografiei de sport si wildlife. In 1995 au lansat primul obiectiv cu Image Stabiliser EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, dedicat fotografiei sport/wildife pentru amatori.

In 2001 a fost fabricat primul obiectiv care a folosit tehnologia elemetelor optice difractive multi strat “multi layered diffractive optics elements” EF 400mm f/4 DO IS USM (un obiectiv mai compact) dedicat fotografiei sport/wildlife. In 2008 au lansat SWC (Subwavelength Structure Coating) pentru peisaje in EF 24 mm F/1.4L II USM.

2009 aduce primul sistem IS Hibrid din EF 100mm f2.8L Macro IS USM pentru macro si close-up-uri, in 2010 Canon lanseaza o versiune noua EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM dedicata unei game largi de fotografie profesionala.

PS. Da, sunt fan Canon :))

Filmuletul se numeste “Dublin’s People”.

I took the Canon 7d, Zacuto Tactical rig, Z-Finder V2 and one lone lens, a Canon 35mm f1.4, which becomes more like a 50mm lens on the 7d. So a bit like what I did with Sofia’s People (but I didn’t have the Zacuto rig for that).

I shot 1/50th of a second as I was shooting 24p and to match the 50hz frequency of the artificial all around me in Temple Bar.
I also shot some stuff 720p 50p with shutter at 1/100th to get the slow motion shots of the juggler which were conformed to 23.98p in Cinema tools to create the beautiful slow motion.
