A tipster recently sent me word that the Canon 5D Mark II would remain in Canon’s lineup in the near future. However, another new DSLR model would be released soon (instead of a 5D Mark III) and would be a step-up from the 5D Mark II. [Read more…]
Just a little over a week left in the Canon Instant Rebate program for Lenses and Speedlites, as well as the DSLR combo rebates. Both of these were previously extended through January until February 4, 2012.

Is history going to repeat itself with the Nikon D4 (see above mock-ad re: Nikon D3)? But this time on the video side of the DSLR market?
Nikon is really happy with its new D4 flagship. My favorite quote from a Nikon person at CES was “We like to shut people up.”
Boy, did they…
There’s no doubt that the D4 is an amazing camera. It’s amazing how far they’ve one-upped their own D3s. I’m really hoping to get the chance to shoot some college basketball with one before the season is over.
For sports shooters, Canon’s 1D X and Nikon’s D4 should be close again. I think the D3s edged out the 1D Mark IV in AF performance over series of real world tests I conducted in 2010. However, I think the performance is closer than most forum postings would lead you to believe.
I’m curious to see how well these new cameras stack up against each other on the still image capture side; however, I’m even more interested in how Canon will respond to the Nikon D4’s key video capture features. [Read more…]
The above video is just painful. I felt very bad for the 5D Mark II and its owner.
This video apparently did him some good though. After racking up over 200K views (and counting) on Vimeo, Kurtis Hough updated in the comment section that B&H has offered to replace the camera for him.
Kudos to B&H.
