Big Memory Card Deal Today on Amazon

Amazon is known for its great "Deal of the Day" prices, and today's are particularly impressive for photographers buying a memory card. Specifically - a 128GB SD card from PNY (a brand we recommend) is selling for a diminutive $16, among other sales on SD, Micro SD, and flash drives.

The Case for f/16

As photographers, it’s easy to get in our own heads and overthink which aperture to use. On one hand, there’s the classic saying - “f/8 and be there.” On the other, modern lens reviews almost always conclude that the sharpest aperture is around f/4 or f/5.6.

It’s Time for More Pancake Lenses

Camera manufacturers have gone all-in on the idea of lightweight cameras. That’s almost entirely how mirrorless got its start, and it remains a major reason why photographers switch from their bulky DSLRs today. So, why haven’t lighter lenses caught on, too?

How to Improve Your Camera Battery Life

Sooner or later, every photographer runs into their camera’s dreaded low battery warning. The eighth law of photography states that the charge left on your battery decreases as the scene in front of you grows more interesting. But never fear - that’s where the tips in this article come in.

Canon Announces Two Mirrorless f/2.8 Zooms

Rounding out the list of Canon announcements today are two pro-level zooms for the company's full-frame mirrorless cameras: a 24-70mm f/2.8 and the world's first 15-35mm f/2.8 zoom. Both will be available in late September, each selling for $2300.

Canon 90D vs M6 Mark II

Today, Canon released two cameras with very similar specifications - except one is a DSLR, and one is mirrorless. The EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II share a number of impressive specifications, whether you're a stills-only photography or a dedicated video user. Here's how they compare to one another.

Canon 80D vs 90D

Now that Canon's 90D has been released, I wanted to see how it compares to the earlier 80D DSLR. At first, the two cameras look similar; the biggest physical difference is that the 90D adds a joystick to control autofocus. But beneath the hood, these are very different DSLRs.

Canon M6 vs M6 Mark II

Now that Canon has released the new EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless camera, I wanted to take a look at how this camera compares to its predecessor, the EOS M6. Both are highly capable cameras, but they have more differences than similarities. Here's how each one stacks up.

Canon M6 Mark II Announcement: A Mirrorless 90D

Canon just announced the M6 Mark II, a major upgrade to its crop-sensor mirrorless lineup. With a 32.5-megapixel sensor, 4K video, and 14 FPS continuous shooting, the M6 II isn't dissimilar from the also-just-announced Canon 90D DSLR. Here's what you need to know.
