900 Megapixel Portraits Turn the Human Face Into a Crazy Landscape

We've seen stitched together "gigapixel" photos made of a billion pixels before, but they tend to be reserved for huge landscapes. Photographer Daniel Boschung has taken absurdly high resolution methodology and applied it to a much smaller area: the human face. Read More >>

Why Even Canon's Competition Wants it to Take Mirrorless Seriously

Photographers have been urging Canon and Nikon, the two camera-making titans, to put their hearts into the still-budding mirrorless camera market for years. It's gotten to the point that even their competitors, like Fujifilm, want them to get with the times. Read More >>

Canon G1X Mark II: The Beefy Point and Shoot Gets a Modern Overhaul

The landscape of high-end point and shoots has changed significantly over the past couple of years. Canon's two-year-old G1 X used to be unique and sought after, but Sony's RX100 and RX100 Mark II redefined what a point and shoot was capable of. Now it's Canon's turn to play catch-up. Read More >>

Canon PowerShot N100 Has Two Cameras So You Can Take Frontback Photos

Last year's Canon PowerShot N was a weird little point-and-shoot camera with an odd design aimed at roping in the masses who have ditched tiny cameras for smartphones. It was neat, but not all the way there. With the new PowerShot N100, Canon has redesigned the camera so that it can do even more smartphone-like things. Read More >>

The Last Days of the DSLR

The DLSR is everywhere. You see it around the necks of tourists, and against the faces of pro photographers. Since Canon introduced the Digital Rebel in 2003, the DSLR has come to dominate photography outright. That ubiquity is about to come to an end so abrupt, you might not even have time to notice it.

Canon 70D Review: DSLR Video Nirvana Comes More Into Focus

Canon has spent years making incremental improvements to its DSLR line's video features, yet it's been ages since we've seen a major step forward in functionality. While the 60D added some nice touches, its successor, the EOS 70D, makes one very specific leap towards excellence. Read More >>

Canon's Experimental Video Sensor Sees the World in Utter Darkness

Back in March, Canon showed off an in development video sensor that could capture the details of a scene in almost no light. The results were primitive, but impressive. A new video clip of fireflies in a dark forest shows the progresses Canon is making, and it's pretty amazing.
The new clip was shot with a prototype camera featuring the new full frame CMOS sensor shooting in full HD at 30 fps. Clearly there's a lot of detail in the vegetation and glowing fireflies captured, despite the fact that the shot was taken after sunset with a light level of about .01 lux. That means that if you were standing in that forest you would hardly be able to see anything at all with the naked eye. Read More >>

A Brief Tour of Canon's Massive Showroom of Wonders

Canon USA's brand-new Long Island, New York headquarters doesn't just house boardrooms, cubicles, and water coolers. It's also where the venerable camera company maintains its giant showroom, in which every current Canon product—plus a plethora of other imaging technology tidbits—is on prominent display. We took a trip out there last week; here's a taste of what we found. Read More >>

Canon S120: A Tiny, Awesome Point-and-Shoot Camera (Again and Again)

For less than £450 you can't find a tiny camera with the image quality and flexibility of Canon's parade of S-series Powershot cameras. With the S120, the tradition marches on. Read More >>

If You Thought an Ink Printer Could Never Amaze You Again, You're Wrong

It's hard to get excited about a printer these days, while Canon's new Océ ColorWave 900 is priced and targeted at high end print shops, it's still absolutely remarkable to see the thing in action. Capable of printing more than 12,000 square feet per hour, the 900 can create 3.4 billion drops of ink every second. To put that in perspective, the printer is capable of creating a printout as tall as the Freedom Tower in New York in about half an hour. Read More >>

Rumour: Canon Is Testing a 75-Megapixel Pro DSLR

As camera rumours go, this one's pretty insane: Photography Bay is claiming that a reliable source has told it that Canon is testing "a pro-sized body like the 1D X", which packs a sensor with over 75 megapixels. Blimey. Read More >>

Canon EOS 70D: Yet Another Incredible Video DSLR From Canon

Canon has always been one step ahead of the pack when it comes to putting video in DSLRs. From the pro 5D to its beginner SLRs, it's been a leader. But the new tech in the Canon EOS 70D could change things forever -- once again. Read More >>

80 Per Cent Off Vacuum Cleaners Is Your Neat-Freak-Loving Deal of the Day

As the greatest minds all say, cleanliness is next to godliness, and so we're turning our attentions towards the spicking and spanning of things that might otherwise be mucky. Read More >>

Canon 100D (SL1): The Shrunken-Down Beginner DSLR You've Been Waiting For

Last year's Canon 650D (T4i) was a really excellent camera. But for all its whiz-bang features like a capacitive touchscreen and continuous autofocus while shooting video, it just didn't feel special. A DLSR for beginners just doesn't make as much sense when there are smaller mirrorless cameras that can achieve similar results. So Canon shrunk the 650D down. Here's the mini version, Canon 100D (SL1). Read More >>

Sketches Show How Canon's Designer Dared to Create an Almost-Square Camera

It's a rare day when a company as big as Canon invites us into its design studio (well, sends us a bunch of amazing sketches and renders), showing the design process behind one of its most radical designs to date. Though you may disagree with me that making the PowerShot N higher and narrower actually constitutes as being "radical," the thinking displayed by Canon's Product Designer Miyabi Orihashi certainly breaks from the norm.
