So, Canon is releasing their own firmware for the Canon EOS-R which mainly includes a new eye-AF functionality. While Canon HK published the news about two weeks ago, the actual update became available via Canon […] The post Canon EOS R Firmware update brings Sony-like Eye-AF appeared first on DIY Photography.

Laowa gets serious about video with 25-100mm T2.9 and 12mm T2.9 cinema lenses

Although Laowa does make a cinema mod version of their crazy 24mm f/14 Probe lens, they’re not really known for their cinema lenses. Because they haven’t really made any, until now. At NAB 2019, we saw a couple of pretty cool new lenses on the Laowa stand. 12mm T2.9 prime and a 25-100mm T2.9 zoom cinema […] The post Laowa gets serious about video with 25-100mm T2.9 and 12mm T2.9 cinema lenses appeared first on DIY Photography.

This long term timelapse camera can run for a month off four AA batteries

Timelapse is a subject that many photographers and filmmakers have tried. But sometimes, a couple of hours just isn’t long enough to shoot the sequence that you really need.

The Afidus ATL-200 from TimeLapseCameras is one solution to […] The post This long term timelapse camera can run for a month off four AA batteries appeared first on DIY Photography.

Feelworld’s range of entry-level monitors have become quite popular over the last couple of years. Although they don’t offer all the bells and whistles we might find on monitors from Aputure and SmallHD, they’re plenty good enough for many hybrid shooters and specific use cases where those bells and whistles might be overkill.

The Core SWX Powerbase Edge wants to power all of your photo and video devices on location

One of the biggest issues for photographers and filmmakers working on location is that of power.

Lensrentals found a dead fly inside a weather sealed Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens

A weather-sealed lens shouldn’t let any dust, sand, moisture or other elements inside of it. But weather-sealed doesn’t make it sealed against insects, apparently.
