If you’re a Canon body owner, you might think that getting some good spare batteries for cheap would be a great idea! That would mean hours upon hours of shooting, right? Well, those hours could be substantially cut down and could cause some other frustration. The horrible keyword is “cheap.” Ya dig? I love saving […]

Over the years, I’ve found myself purchasing, trading, selling, tactfully acquiring, or otherwise receiving and getting rid of lenses. I’ve journeyed through pages and pages of reviews and online forums, spoke to many wonderful skilled photographers and dissected people’s images to find out what I wanted and what I needed in terms of glass. My […]

He’s a photographer for National Geographic yet his photos are unlike any other wildlife photographers I’ve seen because of his beautiful combination of his subjects and fine art.  From the strength of a simple, singular swan to a triangle formation of an elk gang, I’m completely blown away at the level that this photographer has […]

I wanted to share a video that I recently shot on HDR.  It was a look at the shooting process produced with a friend of mine, Abba Shapiro.   I went shooting at Great Fall National Park along the Potomac River (think George Washington and a boat).  We look at the whole shooting process on both […]

UPDATE: All gear sold now.   I am retiring from professional photography on November 2, 2013. I thought I’d hang on to all my Canon gear with the idea that I’d use it for fun and the occasional assignment I might take from an old client as a favor. Then the Olympus OM-D system came […]

Canon let everyone know this week that it really does have a new camera coming. Unfortunately, it’s not actually going to be available until spring of next year. It’s probably a good […]

I’ve given away lots of cameras. Amongst the most popular has always been the Canon 5D MK II. When my friends at Adorama got together with me saying they wanted to participate in one of my contests, we looked at what might be a popular prize. We considered the Nikon D700, but you can’t buy […]

Last summer Canon announced a new matched pair of extenders. They updated the Canon EF 1.4X III Telephoto Extenderand Canon EF 2.0X III Telephoto Extender. The new models feature an integrated processor which ensures all focusing, metering and ID information when paired with the right lenses. Canon claims that when combined with premium Canon L-series […]

Out of the thousands of questions I’ve received here at Photofocus, Nikon v. Canon is right at the top of the list. People ask me this question as if the right answer will be the difference between a successful photo or a failure. Nothing could be further from the truth. I am in a unique […]

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO I am a photographer. I am NOT a filmmaker – but I am trying to acquire some of the same skills. I have really enjoyed learning more about shooting moving pictures. And the Canon 1D MK IV is very well situated to that task. Last week I spent some […]

They say you can never be too thin, have too much money or too much lens. (Oh well two out of three ain’t bad!) Canon obviously agrees with the latter statement. Their 800 super telephoto lens is one of the longest production lenses made. I’ve been testing the Canon 1D MK IV for a review. […]

Sample 1DMKIV video footage – shot in the dark at Opryland using ISO 1600 I’ve had the new Canon EOS 1D Mark IV for several days now. I’ve used it primarily as a video camera but also have made some test still shots. I think I have enough information to form a credible opinion. The […]

I have been using the Canon EOS 7D as a video camera. I like it well enough to have purchased two of them for my own use. But this week, while co-leading my annual Bosque del Apache photo workshop with Arthur Morris I’ve had a chance to test the 7D as a still camera. Here […]

There’s no perfect camera. There never will be. There’s no camera that’s right for everybody in every situation. But the Canon PowerShot G11 is a camera that is right for more things than not, and more people than not, and in my opinion, it’s a camera that re-establishes Canon as the king of the high-end […]

(NOTE: There are tons of sites that show sample footage from all the cameras I mention in this post – here’s some I posted – feel free to use Google to find them and decide for yourself which has the best video quality. Also I am not reviewing this camera from the point of view […]
