Review of the Cactus V5 Transceiver

In the second week of November 2010 I was contacted by Harvest One Limited as part of a small group of photographers around the world about testing a new version of their Cactus wireless flash triggers. At that time their latest model was the Cactus V4 Wireless Flash Trigger which I had been using for a few months already. So when … Continue reading

Canon EOS 60D Review: Noisier than 40D

I’m going to be very short with my review of the Canon EOS 60D: IT SUCKS. On second thought, let me elaborate on that. The Canon EOS 60D is a step backwards in the xxD series on almost all levels. If you own a 20D, 30D, 40D or, heaven forbid, a 50D, then by getting a 60D you won’t really … Continue reading

Canon EOS 5D Mark II – Camera from Hell

Most of the time these users went online after experiencing issues to search for a solution and then found my blog … Continue reading

Canon EOS 1D Mark IV Reviews & Thoughts

With the release of the EOS 1D Mark IV, Canon has once again demonstrated that they don’t fully understand what photographers are really looking for these days. Somehow Canon can’t seem to let go of the megapixel race and seems to think that what we’re all really looking for is more megapixels on our cameras and even larger images, even if … Continue reading

Cease and Desist letter from Amazon / dpreview

My recent post about the Canon EOS 7D caused a bit of controversy on the Internet and it is not surprising considering that in that post I’m essentially showing that the EOS 7D, Canon’s supposedly latest and greatest APS-C sensor camera body, is offering worse image quality compared to the two year older model, the EOS 40D. This was my … Continue reading

Canon EOS 7D Review: Noisier than 40D

Shortly after the announcement of the EOS 7D camera by Canon, I wrote a post here on my blog where I mentioned that the 7D looked like a very promising camera. Before I continue with my review of the 7D, let me take a moment to discuss some of the things I said in that previous post. I mentioned right … Continue reading

Canon Inc. takes down video by Vincent Laforet

Canon USA has asked photographer Vincent Laforet to take down his video titled ‘Nocturne‘ based on orders coming from their headquarters at Canon Inc. in Japan. Laforet used Canon’s recently announced 1D Mark IV camera body to shoot the video. The video did an excellent job showing the technical capabilities of the 1D4 in low light situations, so I was … Continue reading

Canon EOS 7D: Looking Very Promising

Canon has announced the EOS 7D DSLR last week and so far it is looking very promising. It includes some new features and upgrades that have been long overdue. You may already know that I have been very critical of Canon in the last 2 years when it comes to their DSLRs and lenses. I have written numerous posts about … Continue reading

Canon EOS 5D Mark II: NOT WORTH IT – Save your money!

Note: This post has been updated below. Last update on 04/08/2010. After having written two posts about why the Canon EOS 5D Mark II is barely worth it (see the last one here), I have to take it a step up now and go ahead and say that the Canon EOS 5D Mark II is absolutely NOT worth it. Save your money … Continue reading deletes “anti-Canon” post about the EOS 5D Mark II

Update 01/02/2009: After exchanging some emails with Bryan Carnathan, I was able to explain to him the purpose of my “anti-Canon” posts and he has agreed to restore my original post back on the forum. Basically I told him I am a Canon user and that the purpose of all this is not just to bash Canon, but to make it … Continue reading
