Previous Next 1 of 2 Canon has been the best selling interchangeable lens camera brand for more than a decade, but Sony is catching up — and just became the number-one brand of full-frame cameras in 2019. Thanks to other formats, Canon maintains the edge overall, but the race is neck and neck. The question of which company makes the better camera is no different than the Apple vs. Android debate — the answer depends on exactly who’s asking. If you’re a photographer who demands an optical viewfinder, a DSLR is the way to go — and that’s Canon’s bread and butter. But if you’re looking for the best performance in a mirrorless camera, that’s where Sony shines. Canon entered the full-frame mirrorless category in 2018 with the EOS R, but it’s still catching up to Sony in this department. In the end, it’s the little details — and what and how you shoot — that will end the tug-of-war … [Read more...] about Canon vs. Sony: Which camera brand belongs in your bag?

Previous Next 1 of 2 Like Batman versus Superman, the Red Sox versus the Yankees, or paper versus plastic, the Canon versus Nikon debate has been raging for decades. Long two of the top-selling brands for professional and consumer cameras alike, the names are likely the first that come to mind when thinking about buying a new camera. That long-standing rivalry means the two companies are constantly trying to one-up each other — but it also makes for a tough decision for photographers choosing a new camera. Once you’ve made a choice, you’re invested into a system — and switching becomes a huge expense, since you need to replace lenses, flashes, and potentially other accessories instead of just a camera body. Understandably, that puts a lot of pressure on the initial purchase decision. But photographers concerned about the name on the front of the camera are worrying about the wrong things. Why? Because choosing between Canon and Nikon … [Read more...] about Canon vs. Nikon: Everything you need to know about the camera heavyweights
Both Nikon and Canon now have two choices in the full-frame mirrorless segment, with the Canon EOS R and Nikon Z 7 being the range-topping models, at least for now. While both cameras are the current flagships, the two don’t are not direct competitors. At $2,299, Canon’s EOS R is more closely matched with Nikon’s budget-friendly option, the Z 6, than the $3,400 Z 7. Yet, some specs are more closely aligned with the Z 7 than the Z 6. Canon may have played it safe by launching cheaper mirrorless models — the EOS RP is even less, at $1,300 — but there’s more to consider than price when looking for the better camera. Can the EOS R keep up with the more expensive Z 7? Let’s take a look at how these two cameras compare.

While we were choosing the most badass motorcycles from sci-fi movies, the suggestions came faster than a 74-Z speeder and with more authority than a Lawmaster. In the end, what we originally intended to be a “top 10” list quickly grew to a “top 14.” If we included television shows — looking at you, Battlestar Galactica — the list could have easily grown longer. Either way, sit back and check out some of the more memorable motorcycles from science fiction (clips included) Stolen 1990 Harley-Davidson Fatboy Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991) Terminator 2: Judgement Day is the 1991 sequel to 1984’s original Terminator, both directed by James Cameron and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
