Firmware Update

Canon .CR2 File Format Hacked and Decoded

canon-raw-file-hack

It’s a really good news for Canon DSLR users. Magic Lantern guys claims (ML is a open source firmware for Canon DSLRs) that they have succeed to capture in-camera digital negative (DNG) RAW files in Canon DSLRs by Hacking and decoding the in-camera .CR2 Files of Canon 5D Mk III camera.

So, you don’t have to fight with .CR2 RAW files anymore since (DNG) RAW files are more acceptable in image editing tools like Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw. A 5DMk III DSLR with ML firmware can save RAW file directly in DNG RAW insted of .CR2

Magic Lantern developer a1ex decoded the Canon CR2 files and modified the output to allow the camera to produce a lossless DNG file instead.

You can see the proof at Magic Lantern forums where the user Danne has posted a couple of lossless 14bit DNG files.

However the date and availability of the firmware is still un-known

Best Event Shooting Lens

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens

Canon 24-70mm Lens image

The lens does have the ability to do blazing fast AF when mounted on Canon 5D Mark IV. The lens supports Dual-pixel AF system of Canon 5D Mark IV very effectively without any issue.

The build quality of this lens is matchless. The L series weather sealing allow you to work in any type of situation. But. unfortunately the lens doesn’t have any built-in image stabilization yet.

Very minimal barrel distortions even at wide end. I don’t want to make this long, In short the build quality of the lens is exceptional and with the help of its newly developed ultra-sonic AF motor the lens acquire AF in no time with super accuracy.

Sigma 35mm F1.4 ARt Lens image

The Sigma 35mm ART lens is the most popular and highest-rated lens among 5D Mark IV users, once you mount this lens on your camera you will sure forget your kit lens. The lens covers a classic 35mm frame and the optics as well as build quality of Sigma ART series is matchless. The Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and the Floating Internal Focus System does blazing fast AF with 5D Mark IV. And keep in mind No other standard prime lens that can compete with the image quality of Sigma 35mm F1.4 ART.

The lens cost half as of Canon 35mm F1.4 II lens and during several test the performance of Sigma lens proved slightly better. We highly recommend you to get the 35mm ART for Canon 5D Mark IV camera.

Sigma 50mm ART Lens image

Normally professional shooters don’t prefer shooting portrait with a 50mm lens, but if you want to know the name of 50mm Lens, I recommend you to  buy the new Sigma 50mm F1.4 ART lens without a second thought. The lens will cost you a lot less than the Canon F1.2 L lens but its performance is way better than Canon 50mm F1.2.

The Good: Best 50mm Lens for Canon
The Bad: none

We have told you a week ago that Canon XC15 is coming soon and in just few days ago we have published the leaked images of the 4K camcorder. Prior to the announcement the press release of XC15 leaked today

MELVILLE, N.Y., September 1, 2016 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today the XC15 4K Video Camcorder, a 4K UHD digital video camcorder for professional use that achieves high-image quality with a lightweight, compact body.

The new Canon XC15, which builds on the XC10 4K UHD digital video camcorder announced in April 2015, enables shooting with an external microphone through an XLR input and features the selection of visual-expression “Look” modes, including modes that allow it to match the look of other Canon professional cameras, making it ideal for use as a “B”-camera as well as for media and video-content productions.

The Canon XC15 ships with the MA-400 microphone adapter that, when attached, enables shooting with XLR-input microphones used in a wide range of media and content-creation applications. As a result, the camcorder supports the production of content that combines both high-image quality and high-sound quality with reduced noise. The MA-400 is also compatible with the EOS C300 Mark II camera.

Thanks to its high-sensitivity one-inch CMOS sensor and DIGIC DV 5 image processing platform with high calculation-processing power, the new XC15 is capable of capturing high-image quality and low-noise 4K UHD video. Additionally, the camcorder features a compact, lightweight body design, measuring approximately 5.0 x 4.1 x 4.8 inches (WxHxD) and weighs approximately 2.1 pounds while also sporting a 10x optical zoom lens1, which facilitates shooting in confined spaces and environments that demand mobility.
