  • Canon EOS Rebel T3i is Top Class

    Posted on August 22nd, 2011 Staff Writer

    The new Canon EOS Rebel T3i is the newest high end camera that is just above the Rebel T3 and last year’s Rebel T2i. The biggest difference between the Rebel T2i and the Rebel T3i is the new flip-out and rotating LCD display on the T3i. The Canon EOS Rebel T3i still includes the 18.0 MP sensor which was included in the T2i. Trust me when I say the T3i will not disappoint you with the picture quality no matter if shot in low light or with high ISO. The Canon EOS Rebel T3i also carries the DIGIC 4 processor to keep your performance level at top speed when snapping pictures. No matter what the picture quality is high even when shooting at 6400 ISO. This camera also includes full HD video recording and live view shooting.

     

    Other Specifications:

    • SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card Slot
    • 18MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
    • DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor
    • 3.0″ Clear View Vari-Angle LCD
    • 100-6400 ISO
    • Full HD Movie Mode w/ Manual Exposure
    • Compatible with Canon EF and EF-S Lenses
    • 3.7 Frames/Second Continuous Shooting
    • 63 Zone Dual-Layer Metering / 9-Point AF
    • Intelligent Auto Mode

    If you are new to photography this camera is not for you. This is for the experienced photographer who is already well versed with Canon products and DSLRs. This camera offers the best options for a camera of its price with outstanding results.

  • Canon Powershot SX210 Review

    Posted on April 7th, 2011 Staff Writer

    This is a great Canon camera that has a long zoom in a small frame. The 14-megapixel PowerShot SX210 is just that type of camera from Canon. The photo quality is above average to excellent for a camera this size. The amount of noise this camera produces is low which makes this a great camera for beginners. Canon’s PowerShot SX210 captures still images in a choice of 12 JPEG file sizes (including 2 @ 16:9) as well as HD 720p(1280×720) video clips (with stereo sound) up to 60 minutes (or 4GB per clip) as well as 640×480 @ 30 fps and 320×240 @ 30 fps for lower-resolution applications. And when shooting hand-held, walkabout video, the SX210 takes advantage of Canon’s Dynamic mode to dampen the bumps along the way. The SX210 is also available in black, purple and gold versions.

    Compact cameras like these start giving softer images when you go beyond ISO 200 and so did this Canon. The photos will get much softer when you go beyond ISO 400 but still 8×10 inch prints look great on this camera. For hassle-free shooting, Canon’s Smart AUTO mode automatically analyzes the scene and sets the best exposure based on 22 predefined shooting situations. For shooting under low lighting conditions, the ISO sensitivity of the PowerShot SX210 IS can be dialed up to 1600, and when shooting in Low Light mode, expanded as high as an equivalent of ISO 6400.

    The cameras controls aren’t really made for big hands. Canon makes the flash pop up every time you start the camera but you can push it down and it will stay down. With the flash up, the camera is very awkward to hold because you don’t really have anywhere to put your fingers.  This is really the only issue I have found with this camera. Overall this camera ia great camera for the cost.

     

    Items included with this camera:

    Lithium-ion Battery Pack NB-5L

    Battery Charger CB-2LX

    Wrist Strap WS-DC9

    Digital Camera Solution CD-ROM

    USB Interface Cable IFC-400PCU

    AV Cable AVC-DC400

  • 42nd Street Photo Reviews The Canon EOS Rebel Digital T2i

    Posted on December 27th, 2010 Staff Writer

    The Canon Rebel T2i is an 18MP DSLR that follows up the popular Canon Rebel T1i. The Canon EOS Rebel T2i incorporates a number of advanced pro-DSLR features in a compact and very affordable camera body. The Rebel T2i handles much like the Rebel T1i; however, the Rebel T2i has a number of subtle changes like new button designs and a new 3:2 format LCD. This is the first Canon DSLR with a display that is actually the same shape of the sensor. The EOS Rebel T2i can also capture full 1080p HD video with monaural sound, or stereo sound when using (optional) 3.5mm external microphones.

    In addition to the camera’s bright eye-level optical reflex viewfinder, the Rebel T2i also features Advanced Live View (with a dedicated Live view/Movie button) for composing and editing your stills and video using the T2i’s 3.0″ Clear View LCD, which contains a whopping 1.04 million dots of resolving power.

    The buttons on the rear of the camera are flatter than they were on the T1i and are easier to use, which almost gives the camera controls on the rear a point and shoot feel.  The Q button on the rear brings up the quick settings display and is very easy and intuitive to navigate using the 4-way controls on the rear panel.

    The Canon EOS Rebel T2i records imagery onto a choice of SD memory card, SDHC memory card, or SDXC Memory Cards and powers off an LP-E8 lithium-ion battery, which is good for up to 550 still exposures or 1 hour and 40 minutes of video recording. The EOS Rebel T2i is compatible with all Canon EF and EF-S optics. For CAEDRT2IK only – The Canon Rebel T2i kit comes with an image stabilized Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS zoom lens, which has an equivalent focal range of a 28.8 – 88mm lens on a full-frame (24x36mm) 35mm camera.

    New Features

    • 18MP CMOS sensor with a 4-channel readout (the 7D has an 8-channel readout)
    • ISO 100-6400 (up to 12,800 with boost)
    • DIGIC 4 Processor
    • 3.7 fps continuous shooting speed (34 high-quality JPEGs, 6 RAW)
    • 9-point auto focus system
    • 63 zone dual layer metering
    • 1080p HD video at 24, 25, and 30 frames per second (fps)
    • 720p HD video at 50 and 60 fps, VGA at 50 and 60 fps
    • manual exposure option in video mode
    • external stereo mic input
    • new movie crop mode
    • new LCD with 3:2 aspect ratio and 1.04 million dot resolution
    • Quick control button
    • SD/SDHC/SDXC cards (adding compatibility with SDXC cards)
    • size/weight: 5.1×3.1×3.0 inches (close to the T1i) weight 18.7 oz
    • Typical battery capacity – 550 shots without flash (430 shots with 50% flash)

    The Canon EOS Rebel Digital T2i makes a great impression.

    Posted on September 22nd, 2009 Staff Writer

    It’s clear that we live in the digital age, no one can argue that, but when it comes to preserving your precious memories are you up to speed? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could record home movies and personal gatherings/events straight onto DVD and watch it? Well now you can, with the Canon DC210 Handycam DVD Camcorder.

    Canon has always been known for their quality and value, so it should come as no surprise that their DVD camcorder is both of these. The first thing you’ll probably notice about the DC210 Handycam is the stylish design, both attractive and sensible. One could easily pick up the DC210 and begin shooting right away; although taking a look at the manual won’t hurt anyone.

    Weighing in at 14.3 ounces (not even a full pound), this ultra-compact is light and among it’s competition, very affordable, even for tight budgets. It’s 35x optical zoom is impressive in such a small package.

    The CD210 Handycam comes with all the basic features, plus a few extras that most other ultra-compacts don’t have, including various filters and multiple points of control for certain functions, like zoom. Some might find this confusing, but we think it’s simply all the more convenient to be able to accomplish some tasks in different ways. Afterall, much of the convenience of a digital camcorder depends on controls, so given more than one option to do so is a pleasant surprise for us.

    All in all, if you’re a casual photographer that doesn’t want to break the bank, this camera is a great choice. For home movies, special events or just fun around the house, the Canon DC210 Handycam DVD Camcorder is a good buy.

  • 42nd Street Photo Recommends the Canon Powershot G10

    Posted on May 5th, 2009 Staff Writer

    For photographers of all shapes, sizes, styles and experience, Canon knows how to cover their bases. With quality digital cameras in the DSLR and POS arenas, Canon has something for everyone. But they also have one camera that may suit anyone just right, the Canon Powershot G10.

    With it’s first glance wide range of features, generous display, and 14.7 megapixels, it’s hard not to take a closer look. Once you do, you’ll probably find what many other photographers, from the amateur to the professional, have found. The Canon G10 is the kind of digital device that gladly meets, and proudly surpasses expectations, especially for the price.

    While not the cheapest digital camera on the market, the G-10′s modest price tag is the clincher for many. Still, for others, it’s the 28mm wide angle lens, 5x optical zoom, DIGIC 4 Image Processor, or perhaps it’s compatibility with a wealth of accessories that can spark that creative edge. Whatever your bread and butter, the Canon G10 has something, if not everything, you would want in a compact point-and-shoot digital camera.

    42nd Street Photo offers plenty of other POS digital cameras, so if the G10, though unlikely, doesn’t fit your needs, come on in and we’ll help you find one that will, at a price that’s right for you!

  • Canon EOS-5D – A Full-frame Digital SLR for Pros

    Posted on July 27th, 2008 Elliot

    If you frequently take off on photography expeditions, I suggest that you go for the Canon EOS-5D, which is claimed to be one of the smallest and lightest full-framed digital SLR cameras.

    Every time I use it, it gives me clear, sharp, and resplendent images. Accommodating a good pixel count, it freezes your precious moments into top-notch, high-resolution images. With the EOS 5D’s solid features, high-end technologies, and a full-size 12.8 MP image sensor, shooting is always fast and flexible.

    With exceptional reproduction quality, cropping flexibility, and superior output capabilities, I can translate my vision into images perfectly. DSLRs allow swapping lenses and so does the Canon EOS-5D (supports all Canon EOS lenses, except EF-S series) – a boon for photographers who have to switch lenses depending on the job at hand. I also enjoy maximum control over my camera’s settings with the Canon EOS-5D 12.8 Megapixel Digital Camera. Significantly reduced power consumption of the camera helps to extend the battery life so that you do not have to worry about the battery dying out on you while shooting outdoors. The commendable “Picture Style” function takes care of everything required to deliver an exact replica of the original.

    The advanced magnesium alloy provides a rugged weather-resistant exterior in order to withstand the rigors of the elements and rough handling. Get detailed information about the Canon EOS-4D from 42nd Street Photo.

  • Experts Choice – Canon EOS Rebel Digital XSi 450D

    Posted on July 25th, 2008 Elliot

    I always prefer quality shots over convenience that’s why I chose a DSLR rather than going for a point-and-shoot camera. The Canon EOS Rebel Digital XSi 450D is an upgrade from Rebel XTi, which is surely good news for all Canonians. Despite its high-end functions and technologies, it rather took very less time to master the functions. I checked out the Canon EOS 450D’s capability in low-light ambience and guess what; it gave me stunning images at every point of time. With its auto optimization, it enhanced my work in any tricky lighting conditions.

    I am more of a wildlife photographer, and I needed a camera that could help me with continuous shooting. With 3.5 frames per second continuous shooting, instant startup time, speedy autofocus, and minimal shutter lag, no wonder the Canon 450D is regarded as one of the fastest camera. Offering the most pixels in its class, I am able to take candid shots without any jitters. I don’t have to worry about the sensor as the Integrated Cleaning System removes dust in a breeze. Thanks to the high-resolution 3″ LCD screen, which allows me to compose and preview subjects beforehand.

    This compact and lightweight camera also gives a solid grip for easy handling on my outdoor trips.

  • Canon EOS-1D Mark III- The Next Step

    Posted on July 24th, 2008 Elliot

    Canon EOS 1D Mark III

    If you are a professional photographer, you require a camera that is not only dependable but also delivers excellent image reproduction. I feel that the Canon EOS-1D Mark III will bring your search to an end. Being one of the fastest cameras with up to 10 fps continuous shooting speed, it does not miss out on any incredible moment. It has versatile features to reproduce the exact image that you have in your mind.

    The display has a Live View option that gives you the convenience of composing and shooting directly from the screen. Enclosed in a magnesium alloy shell, it can withstand any rough weather condition. The EOS-1D Mark III gives the luxury to shoot subjects from a distance with ease, as it is compatible with 50 EF lenses. Dust in the sensor cannot affect the quality of images, as the camera has a dedicated unit for cleaning.

    The EOS-1D Mark III will give you a well-rounded performance with a friendly interface, astonishing high ISO performance, and a host of new features, and a stack of custom functions. According to Tsunemasa Ohara, Senior General Manager, Camera Development Center, Canon Inc, “The EOS-1D Mark III represents a complete reappraisal of everything Canon has learned over the past 20 years of EOS development. In building this camera, we started with a blank canvas. Every facet of the photographic process has been refined, every design decision re-evaluated to bring us to this point: a camera that combines familiar EOS ergonomics with a vastly enhanced specification. Our engineers are overjoyed with the result.”

  • Canon EOS-40D: Canon’s ‘prosumer’ digital SLR

    Posted on July 22nd, 2008 Elliot

    Canon digital cameras have always been a benchmark for excellent design, user friendly menu, and high-end technologies. For critical photographers who tend to scrutinize each camera for good functionalities, the EOS-40D from Canon is the answer. Once I acquainted myself with the technologically innovative Canon EOS-40D Digital SLR Camera, I was impressed with its upgraded, creative features, and performance. It delivers exceptional image quality with brilliant colors through the 10.1-megapixel APS-C-sized CMOS sensor and the newly developed DIGIC III image processor. 

    You will love the dedicated AF Start (AF-ON) button, which lets you execute autofocus option with your thumb. The rugged and versatile camera helps during low-light conditions by preserving even the subtle photographic details.

    This camera can shoot up to 6.5 frames per second, and it is the perfect device to capture any fast action. A durable magnesium alloy body with weatherproof design makes the EOS-40D ideal for outdoor photography.

    The EOS-40D has an edge over its predecessor, Canon EOS 30D due to its higher speed. The Canon EOS-40D gives you the same 10-megapixel resolution as the Rebel XTi but if you are into sports and wildlife photography the former would be a better choice in terms of its durability, faster user interface, better viewfinder, and so on.
