The Canon EOS C700 is a new full frame cinema camera, sporting a 20.8MP CMOS sensor with triple DIGIC DV 5 processors. It was announced on March 28 and was on-hand at NAB 2018 this week.
It captures 4K ProRes and XF-AVC file formats, as well as 5.9K RAW at up to 60 fps using the optional CDX-36150 Codex Recorder. The camera delivers 15 stops of dynamic range, IP streaming and support for multiple LUT formats. [Read more…]
Chuck Westfall, who was the face and voice of Canon to many of us, has died.
If you’ve been close at all to Canon’s DSLRs over the years, you’ve either crossed paths with Mr. Westfall or you’ve seen content that he’s contributed to – in one way or another. He gave so much to Canon’s customers and photo industry as a whole.
I’ve been doing Photography Bay for nearly 12 years and I’ve never met a kinder or more professional representative for any company. In the earlier days, I used to wait for him to chime in regularly with Tech Tips on The Digital Journalist. He was like our American line to the mothership in Japan. He certainly influenced the world around him and will be missed by many.
If you were familiar with him, please take a minute to read these other stories about his life and passing at Imaging Resource and PetaPixel. If you have personal stories or thoughts on Mr. Westfall, please share them with the rest of us in the comments.
The world is a lesser place without Chuck Westfall in the world. Rest in peace, Mr. Westfall.

After a series of leaks, the Canon EOS M50 was officially announced this week. It features a 24.1MP sensor and a DIGIC 8 processor. It’s also the first EOS M series camera to capture 4K video. Add in Canon’s Dual Pixel AF and a built-in OLED viewfinder and we start to check off some wishlists for Canon shooters. [Read more…]

The upcoming Canon EOS M50 4K mirrorless camera and a pair of Canon Rebel models have leaked out. [Read more…]
B&H has the original Canon 6D for $999, which is less than half the price it was when originally released. This is a new low bar for entry into the Canon full frame realm. My guess is that this is the lowest the camera will go as a US retail model and B&H is probably trying to clear out the remaining stock. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
