April 20, 2020:Second EOS R5 development announcement from Canon. It’s been conformed that the sensor size is to be 8192 x 5461 pixels or 44.7 megapixels, validating the 45 MP rumors that had been floating around for some time.

There are lots of impressive video features that I am not too concerned about but many others might be. Adding some of these to the Specification List below.

March 13, 2020: Canon has confirmed that the EOS R5 will support animal Auto Focus (AF) Animal AF can recognize animals and birds so the camera can not only precisely focus on the animal’s eye but the whole body in situations where the eye is not conspicuous. This is a huge boon for wildlife photographers.

Canon also announced that 8K video can be captured up to 30p in all 8K modes and will use Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus.

With these functions, the basic concept of the EOS series, “rapid speed, comfort, and high image quality” is realized at a high level.

Apple Announces New iPhone X

iPhone X

Apple announced the new iPhone X on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 with several new features, some particularly interesting to photographers who employ smartphones for their work. Apple made the iPhone X smaller, while giving it s larger screen size. It will have a more expansive 5.8-inch edge-to-edge screen, but the phone size is actually smaller than a Plus-sized iPhone since it does away with the home button. Pre-orders begin on October 27, 2017 and units begin shipping on November 3.

iPhone X for Photography

The phone’s new camera stays with the 12 megapixels but adds many new features. Optical Image stabilization (OIS) is one such feature for iPhone photographers. The phone sensors are larger and faster than previous versions with what Apple refers to as “deep pixels” with even wider maximum apertures for better low-light resolution. The new camera also employs a new A11 Bionic chip that helps optimize scenes for better results.

In addition to the Portrait Mode (first available on the iPhone 7 Plus), the iPhone X introduces Portrait Lighting which supposedly simulates real studio lighting. It also adds Portrait Mode to the front-facing camera (think selfies). Portrait mode helps blur out the background giving the main subject more prominence.

Other Features

5.8-inch edge-to-edge “Super Retina Display” with 2436 x 1125 resolution
Face ID replaces Touch ID
Water resistant
Wireless charging with the AirPower pad
No more home button; Flick the app upward to return “home”
Animojis, which are 3D emojis which mimic your facial expressions
Longer lasting battery than iPhone 7
Faster charging: 50% recharge in 30 minutes
64GB ($999 USD) and 256GB ($1149 USD) storage

Watch the September 12 iPhone X launch.
