Canon Will Add C-log To The Eos 5d Mark Iv For $99

Canon will add C-Log to the EOS 5D Mark IV for $99

Canon has announced it will make C-Log available to current EOS 5D Mark IV owners by way of a $99 feature upgrade. The update, which includes an unspecified hardware change, will be available at Canon's service centers in the US starting July. C-Log will also be pre-installed in new 5D Mark IV bodies starting July, retailing for $3599.

The camera's internal capture and output remain 8-bit 4:2:0, so it is unlikely to match the degree of gradability that's possible with the 10-bit 4:2:2 footage captured with cameras such as the C700. We're told the Log curve is the same across both cameras, though, to make it easy to match footage.

Canon Introduces Compact-servo 70-200mm T4.4 Lens For Aspiring Filmmakers

Canon introduces Compact-Servo 70-200mm T4.4 lens for aspiring filmmakers

Canon has announced the Compact-Servo 70-200mm T4.4 L IS KAS S, a lens designed for small-scale filmmakers. Targeted at a similar 'emerging production' market to Fujifilm's recently announced MK-series cine lenses, it will offer a middle ground between the company's photographic lenses and its high-end CN-E cinema lenses.

Unlike traditional cinema lenses it offers autofocus, auto iris and image stabilization (when used with certain Cinema EOS models), but is designed to Canon's standards for 4K video capture. It comes with a servo unit for driving focus, iris and zoom.

Photographers throughout the U.S. will get a rare treat this upcoming August 21: a total solar eclipse visible throughout a significant part of the country, the first of its kind to affect the nation from coast-to-coast since 1918.

In it, photographers will find a library of articles detailing how to prepare for and photograph the solar eclipse.

As explained by Space.com recently, the upcoming solar eclipse will be visible to the general American public across a region spanning from the coast of Oregon to the coast of South Carolina. Canon details this and more in one of its new educational articles, as well as providing info on choosing the right lenses and the right cameras to photograph the event.

New Canon Eos 77d Sits Between Rebel T7i And Eos 80d

New Canon EOS 77D sits between Rebel T7i and EOS 80DCanon today has announced the EOS 77D (known as the EOS 9000D in some regions), which will sit between the company's established Rebel line of entry-level DSLRs and the more enthusiast-oriented 80D. (The 77D is essentially the replacement to the Rebel T6s/EOS 760D.) But despite sitting below the 80D in the lineup, it shares that more advanced model's 24.2MP sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus and adds an updated Digic 7 processor to the mix. Users opting to focus using the optical viewfinder will be greeted with a 45-point all-cross-type AF system and 7650-pixel RGB+IR metering system, which work together for better accuracy and subject recognition.

Canon EOS Rebel T7i / 800D bring Dual Pixel AF to entry-level seriesCanon is taking the wraps off its latest entry-level DSLR, the EOS Rebel T7i (known as the EOS 800D in most regions and the Kiss X9i in Japan). It's the highest specified of the beginner-friendly line and maintains the same 24.4MP resolution CMOS sensor as its T6i predecessor. What is new is a 45-point all cross-type autofocus system used for viewfinder shooting, and Dual Pixel AF in live view, a pretty serious upgrade over the T6i's 19-point system.
