canon announces the r3 – and it’s built for speed

Canon has announced the development of the EOS R3 – a camera aimed at professional sports and news photographers that boasts 30fps continuous shooting, a brand-new stacked backside illuminated (BSI) image sensor, “next generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF” and Eye Control Function autofocus. The R3 will sit between the flagship EOS-1D X Mark III DSLR and Canon’s current top-of-the-line mirrorless camera, the EOS R5. And its specs suggest it will take aim at the new Sony A1 – at least in the all-important speed stakes. Its headline feature, which matches the A1, is the 30fps burst shooting with full AF/AE tracking and minimal rolling shutter. This is made possible by the new stacked image sensor (the first ever in an EOS camera) that delivers blisteringly fast readout speeds while minimising distortion. The…

moza moin is a dji pocket 2 rival

Moza has announced its new Moza MOIN camera, a pocket gimbal camera in the style of the DJI Pocket 2. What’s different about the MOIN is its bigger flip-out 2.5-inch touchscreen, which should make it much easier to use as a standalone filming device. Pocket gimbal cameras are an offshoot of action cams and stabilising gimbal technology, with an integrated grip for easy handheld filming, and offer much smoother footage and camera movements than even the best-stabilised smartphones, while being small enough to fit in a pocket or bag. The Moza MOIN’s camera is mounted at the top of the grip on a 3-axis gimbal, which uses Moza’s ‘Deep Red’ anti-shake motor control algorithm for shake-free, stabilised footage. The MOIN has a 120-degree wide-angle lens and a ½.3-inch sensor which can capture 12-megapixel…

food glorious food

JEAN PHILIPPE ‘JP’ BAUDEY CAMERA: CANON EOS 5DS R With more than three decades in the food industry and 20 years as a head chef at some of the UK’s top restaurants, JP knows a thing or two about food. He retired from professional chefing for health reasons, and jokes that it was the best thing that could have happened, because that was when he turned his passion for fine dining into a new vocation as a food photographer. JANE CHAMPION CAMERA: CANON EOS 6D MK II Jane has worked as a catering manager at various restaurants and pubs for over 25 years, so it’s fair to say that, like JP, she has a passion for food. She’s interested in photographing food, and has been using a Canon EOS 6D Mark II for the past…

technique assessment

KEY SETTINGS Jane replicated JP’s camera settings and used a similar macro lens for her photos. Making use of the daylight coming through the window, Jane selected Aperture Priority (Av) mode and dialed in an aperture of f/5.6 and an ISO of 500. JP suggested aiming for a shutter speed twice that of the focal length of the lens to avoid camera-shake – for example, 1/200 sec when using a 100mm lens. This is because high-res sensors pick up camera-shake more easily. BACK BUTTON FOCUSING JP uses back-button focusing, a technique where the focus function is decoupled from the front shutter button and is assigned to the AF-ON button at the rear of the camera. This makes it easier to autofocus and then fine-tune the focus with the manual focus ring, and it…

hot shot #1

JP SAYS We started with this dish: chargrilled green Padrón peppers on hummus with pomegranate, chickpeas and sliced radish sprinkled on top. I used a 50mm focal length to keep the image ‘wide’, so you can see the bowl, napkin, and cutlery, which help to set the scene. The large window in my kitchen provided a single light source, and as it was an overcast day the light was diffused. With one leg up on my kitchen worktop and the other on a stool, I could get high above the dish to shoot down, focusing on the peppers to make sure they were sharp. I then opened my aperture to f/5.6 and set the ISO to 200, which gave me a fast shutter speed of 1/640 sec – more than fast…
