Canon EOS Webcam Utility turns ILCs and PowerShots into USB webcams

Video conferencing is the in thing these days thanks to the inability to go to work and have face-to-face meetings. Despite the popularity of services like Zoom, however, users are still limited by the webcam that they may or may not have. Desktops are the biggest culprits but even laptop cameras may make some people wish they could simply use their bigger and better Canon camera instead.

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III DSLR puts the focus on AF

With smartphones cannibalizing the point and shoot camera market, pro camera manufacturers have been pushed to step up their game and widen the gap between mobile and dedicated cameras. There are definitely a lot of things a smartphone can't do compared to a DSLR given the constraints in hardware and size. Despite the almost ridiculous amount of pixels in mobile imaging sensors, now up to 108 megapixels, phones often falter when it comes to exposure and especially autofocus. It isn't by coincidence, then, that that is exactly where the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III shines the brightest.

Canon EOS 90D, EOS M6 Mark II try to cover all the bases

Dedicated digital cameras today are seen more as professional photography equipment but even in that market there is a broad range of users with different needs and different skills. Camera makers can try to focus on just one class of users or they can try to cater to them all.

Both Interchangeable Lens Cameras (ILC) share the same base DNA, just designed for two different types of photographers.

These days, those companies have also jumped on that bandwagon to hold pre-orders or gauge interest in a product they will sell later on for a higher pricee. The latest to use that strategy is Canon whose IVY REC will try to make lifelogging a thing again.

Canon IVY REC is pretty much a new HTC Re

The folks at Canon have a new camera they want you to see, a camera that'll go with you wherever you like, clipped to your belt loop. This camera is the Canon IVY REC, and upon first glance, it reminded us of one of the most strange cameras ever made: the HTC Re.
