It took them a while but Canon is finally bringing its EOS M3 mirrorless camera system to the U.S. in October 2015. The 24.2-megapixel M3, which uses the same APS-C CMOS sensor as in the Canon Rebel T6 and T6i DSLRs, was launched globally last February but the company held off bringing it here for undisclosed reasons.

It’s been a long wait but it seems to have been worth it. Canon just unveiled new EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM lens, the company’s (and world’s) first lens to use Canon’s new Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics (BR Optics).

My wide-angle lens was perfect when the late-evening shadows crept across the mountains of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The sweeping landscape, wide open and treeless, was suited to the wide field of view. Until, that is, the weather turned, and with it, my perspective on that wild place. I woke one morning to rain pattering intermittently on the nylon of my tent. Between showers, I emerged to find the mountains obscured by scudding clouds.

If you spend a lot of time photographing wildlife, sports, aircraft in flight (or even UFO’s) I'm sure you've longed for a lens with extreme telephoto reach. Sigma now offers a tough, quality 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports lens that can fulfill the wishes of many nature and action shooters. In addition to the ultra long reach, the fact that the lens is a zoom makes it easy to frame the precise composition you want at a wide variety of distances from the subject—and for subjects in a variety of sizes.

I didn’t realize how much I could appreciate a mirrorless CSC (Compact System Camera) till, after working with the Samsung NX500 for several days, I picked up my Nikon D610 DSLR and realized I was carrying a brick in my hands. Don’t get me wrong, though. I still love my D610 and wouldn’t trade it in for anything (not just yet), but the new NX500 felt like a feather around my neck and in my hands. Even when I added the relatively heavy 50-150mm S-series lens, the combo still left me feeling as if I were working with a lyre, not a harp. Admittedly, like the lyre, it’s not as full-bodied an instrument, but the NX500 still plays a sweet tune.

I’m as bad as the next guy when it comes to tripods. I know I should know better—they’re the only accessory you can buy that has the potential to improve every single picture you take. I’ve written about tripods at least a hundred times. That said, there have been too many occasions when I’ve been two-legged when I should have used three.
