Our sister title Photography Week, the market-leading digital magazine for enthusiast photographers, celebrates its first birthday this week with a special free issue.
Canon has revealed an official Canon EOS 100D price, release date and spec sheet for the new DSLR claimed to be the smallest and lightest APS-C DSLR ever made.
When shooting miniature buildings such as those on a train set, the camera’s close proximity to the subject can create a shallow depth of field. This makes some of the model buildings look sharp, while closer and distant ones are blurred; this narrow plane of focus reveals that the scene is a model. You can take inspiration from this focus effect and apply it to life-size scenes for creative results.
Canon UK has said that shipping of the 5D Mark III has temporarily stopped while it investigates problems with the top LCD causing exposure issues.
The fault has been widely reported online, and appears to show the exposure value changing as a result of the top LCD plate light being activated when shooting in very dark conditions.
Canon UK has admitted the fault, and issued the following statement, “Canon has identified that when the LCD top light is switched on in very dark situations, the displayed exposure value may change on the EOS 5D Mark III. Canon is now investigating the issue and will announce further details on the Canon support page in due course.
