I am NOT excited about this camera. I appreciate that Canon is continuing to produce mirrorless cameras but this doesn’t seem competitive against the older Sony a6000 that offers faster focus (how do I know? The Hybrid CMOS AF II system is in older cameras that I have used and reviewed. It isn’t bad but it certainly isn’t as fast as the Sony a6000 or other mirrorless options from Olympus, Panasonic etc.  I also suspect that this is not a new sensor, rather the sensor that was in the Rebels from last year and again, that sensor isn’t bad but it is not competitive with other options on the market.  So what does this camera have going for it? Good question – The Canon name which still means something to some people and it does look quite small but beyond that – not much.

Are you excited?  If you could have 1 minute with Canon’s CEO – what would you tell him?

 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens

  1. This camera can be great with Samyang/Rokinon lenses (maybe also the cinematic versions of the lenses)! What I would say to the CEO? That I’m glad that the mirrorless category started to move and that they have also affordable products … probably… Well, to me, any camera starting from $300 is extremely expensive.
