Polaroids. Remember Polaroids? They're those wonderful instant film thingies that were a big deal before, ya know, digital photography took over the world, making “instant” photography not so instant anymore.

Canon joined the full frame mirrorless camera market by introducing the new 30.3MP Canon EOS R last night and today we had our first chance to take it for a ride. Shutterbug is one of a select group of U.S. media to attend a special Canon R launch event in Hawaii and we spent the afternoon shooting with a full production Canon R and the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM “kit” lens at set-ups with models in Maui.

It’s looking more and more like full frame mirrorless cameras are not simply the wave of the future, they are the world of today.

Let’s say you wanted to attend next week’s Portrait Masters Conference + Expo in Phoenix, AZ but realized that it’s already sold out. Or let’s say, you just didn’t have the time (or money) to fly to the show, book a hotel etc. and check out all the portrait photography classes and presentations from respected photographers and educators, but are still interested in the content.

But I never knew how beautiful the Badger State really was until I watched Chris Biela’s gorgeous 4K time-lapse titled “Close,” which he first started shooting in the summer of 2017 and just completed.
