Canon EOS R50 Announcement: Entry-Level But Solid Features

Today, Canon announced their first entry-level camera for the EOS R system, the Canon EOS R50. With a 24 megapixel APS-C sensor, a fully articulating LCD, 15 FPS shooting, and 4K 30p video, the EOS R50 strikes a solid balance for $679 ($799 with the kit lens) despite the camera’s basic design.

The Advantage of an Inconspicuous Camera

There's a saying that goes, "It's not what you do, it's how you look doing it." This is true to a certain extent. A photographer dressed in the latest hunting fashion with a 600mm f/4 lens on a carbon fiber tripod looks impressive. But there are times when simple clothing...

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro Review

The Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm f/2.8 macro lens is the one of the best macro lenses available for Micro Four Thirds photographers, and possibly the best. With its strong 1:1 magnification, superb sharpness, reasonable working distance, and excellent handling, there is very little room for improvements. I have shot with the M.Zuiko...
