OK, I admit, I’m being a bit deceptive.  While this post will include “tips” for taking full advantage of the Canon EOS 5D Mk III, it won’t really contain any “tricks.”  That is because with digital photography, especially a camera as powerful and complex as the 5D3, there really aren’t any tricks.  Tricks implies shortcuts, […]

The brochure highlights their new cameras, including the Powershot G1 X, where you can learn about some of its exciting new features such as Intelligent Image Stabilization, which will determine if the camera is taking […]

The latest in the Canon Powershot G series, the Powershot G1 X was recently announced, and should be available in February 2012. I wrote a bit about what new features it offers compared to the G12, namely a much larger CMOS sensor and a different lens to go with it. The G1 X is not […]
