Adobe Now Supports Canon CR3 and C-Raw Files from the M50

Adobe released a gigantic Creative Cloud update today with a ton of new features, some of which I want to delve into with some specific posts in the coming days and weeks. However, one thing I wanted to mention right away is that Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, Lightroom CC and Camera RAW are now fully compatible with the Raw files from Canon’s new M50 mirrorless camera. I’m currently testing this Canon M50 mirrorless camera myself so I have been waiting for this to happen, and I’m really pleased to see that Adobe put this release out just a few days...

Canon EOS M50 and BR-E1 Bluetooth Remote

I’m currently evaluating the new Canon EOS M50 mirrorless camera and after a few hours playing with it, I wanted to post this information so that it’s widely available by others searching for it. In short, the user manual for the M50 is the worst one that I have ever seen with a Canon camera – they should be ashamed of it. Not only is it incomplete, but what there is, is hard to decipher due to the tiny size of the images and graphics they use. The M50 doesn’t have a port for a cable release of any...

Canon 100-400 IS II – Aperture Vs. Focal Length

It’s rare that I go anywhere without the Canon 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 L IS II in my bag. It’s a versatile and extremely sharp lens that’s just as capable at capturing detailed landscapes as it is with wildlife. One of the reasons I love it is that it fits such a large zoom range into a relatively small package, although at 5.1lbs you’ll definitely notice it in your bag after a long day. The reason that it’s possible to get such a wide range into a small lens is of course because this lens has a variable aperture. At 100mm,...

Keep Those Feet Dry During Your Photo Road Trips

Wintery photography road trips in the Pacific North West usually involve a lot of getting in and out of the car at various locations, and trudging through wet snowy forests. Having wet boots and cold feet sucks, so I recently purchased an awesome set of portable Travel Boot Dryers from Dry Guy that can run off the 12v power outlet in your car. This nifty product has a little fan in each heating element and it gently blows warm air through your boots or gloves as they sit in the back of the car or the passenger footwell. Given...
