Canon EOS 5D MkIII trumped by D800 in testing

Canon's woes with the EOS 5D Mark III go from bad to worse, with independent tests suggesting the core performance of its new 22-megapixel sensor is little improved from the 5D Mark II it replaces. Hot on the heels of Canon's embarrassing confirmation that the hardware design of the EOS 5D Mark III has a flaw that allows light into the body, testing by specialists DxO Labs indicate only minor advantages from the new model and - unlikely to help in the ongoing Canon vs. Nikon platform war - performance still lagging behind that of the D800.

Canon EOS 60Da aims for the stars

Canon EOS 60Da aims for the stars

Hello Spaceboy: Canon has your camera. The Canon EOS 60Da gets starry specific, a camera specifically tweaked to suit astronomical photography: the company uses a modified infrared filter and a low-noise sensor "with heightened hydrogen-alpha sensitivity" which, it's said, makes for "magnificent photographs of "red hydrogen emission" nebulae and other cosmic phenomena." Replacing the aging 8.2-megapixel EOS 20Da, the EOS 60Da has an 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and, with the right adapter, can be mounted to telescopes.
