Canon EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM Lens | First Look & Hands-On Tests

I completely switched to the Canon EF-M system for now and wanted a “normal” 50mm equivalent lens. Canon just so happened to release this 32mm f1.4 lens! I received it yesterday and have spent the entire time working on this video. I’d say around 10 hours filming and editing. In that video I show you the lens close up and mention some of my initial impressions such as the 32mm … Continue reading

Whatever, I’m going all in on EF-M camera gear!

In a previous post I talked about the potential future of the Canon EF-M system. Though the issue whether EF-M will exist as an active and viable platform is up in the air due to their release of the RF mirrorless mount, I decided to go all-in on EF-M equipment. It was really the most logical step to take. Let’s talk about why. Recently I consigned my Nikon FF DSLRs … Continue reading

Does the EF-M camera system have a future? (EOS M)

I hope there is a future for EF-M, but the announcement of the RF mount system brings that into question. In the photo below I made a mock-up of the M100 if it had the RF mount instead of the EF-M mount. Of course they could make a camera with shorter sides, but this shows the potential size difference if everything besides the mount diameters were the same design. Edit: … Continue reading

Solo hybrid-shooter’s camera? Not the Nikon Z and Canon EOS R…

Now that a specification sheet has been leaked for the Canon EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera we see more about the camera in general. It’s missing some information, likely intentionally removed for whatever reason. The camera rumor game is fun, but also irritating at times. Today I’m talking about a hypothetical camera I’m interested in transitioning to as my primary still photo camera, yet one that has solid video features … Continue reading

Canon Full-Frame Mirrorless Rumors And Analysis

With very little information to go on about the rumored announcement on September 5th, I’m going to talk about some of the ideas pointed out in regard to a Canon mirrorless full-frame camera. Not too long ago I transitioned to a pair of Canon EOS M50 camera bodies with the 22mm f2, 11-22mm, and 15-45mm kit lens primarily for solo video work. The M50 is such a nice little camera … Continue reading

Nikon Z7 And Z6 One Step Forward One Step Back…

Now that the Nikon Z7 and Z6 have been announced, let’s talk about them and Nikon’s expected path moving forward based on their live presentation. Will I consider buying a Z6? Just to give a bit of history on my perspective… My first DSLR was a Pentax *ist DS that I started using in November 2005. Eventually, I made the switch to Nikon when they released the D600. I had … Continue reading

Open letter to Canon about the EOS M50

Dear Canon and related individuals, I have two firmware requests for the Canon EOS M50 (“Canon EOS Kiss M” in other areas of the world). I own two of these cameras and have been using them to make Youtube videos mostly. I’ve run into two usability issues. Both issues could be solved in firmware. I’m primarily a computer software developer and it is my opinion that both of these requests … Continue reading
