    Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 IS II Announcement

      News

    A few significant improvements, compared to the first generation from 2010, can be found in the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II lens, presented a few days ago.

     

    The stabilization system has the efficiency of 5EV and it offers three modes of work: for static shots, for photographing of fast-moving objects and for panning shots. The system is also quieter than its predecessor.

    The optical system consists of 20 elements placed in 15 groups, including one fluorite lens and two low-dispersion lenses. The front and rear lens have been covered with fluorite coatings, which help in keeping the lenses clean. In order to minimize light flares and light reflections, Super Spectra Coatings were used. The lens is equipped with an ultrasonic ring autofocus drive – the minimum focus distance is 1m.

     

    The lens has the dimensions of 80 x 176mm and it weighs 780g. Canon EF 70-200 mm f/4L IS II is to appear on sale this month and it will cost $1300.

      Canon registered four new lenses with the Russian certification authority. This brings the total number of registered and not-yet-announced Canon lenses to five. The new lenses will be made in Japan (Canon Utsunomiya Factory, Oita Factory).

      DESCRIPTION OF THE CANON EOS M50
      Canon EOS M50 is an attractive camera from the EOS M series because Canon has placed a wide range of functions in a small body. Some of these functions appear in the cameras from the series for the first time.

      The camera is equipped with the 24-Mp CMOS sensor (with the ISO range  of 100 - 51200), in APS-C format, supported by the latest DIGIC 8 processor, which enables continuous shooting with the speed of 10f/s and recording films in 4K. However, in the second case, we will be limited by  a 1.6× crop factor (2.25× with the stabilization system turned on) and a phase-detection autofocus.

      The camera is also equipped with a phase-detection Dual Pixel AF, which has been well-rated by us during the tests. The autofocus is perfect for recording films and it is supposed to become event more efficient, thanks to 143 AF points and 100%vertical frame coverage (with selected lenses). 

      What's more, we also have a 2.36Mp built-in electronic viewfinder, which will be surely appreciated by more professional photographers, and a rotating touch LCD screen, with the resolution of 1.04Mp, which is supposed to significantly facilitate camera operation and navigation through the photographs and the preview mode. 

      Canon has also introduced a new, C-RAW, image format, which saves full-size RAWs in a 40% smaller file, extended wireless functions (by adding a possibility of sending photographs immediately during takim them), a possibility of silent photography (electronic shutter mode) and support for the EOS Utility program, which enables easy tethering and controlling the camera from the computer.

      With the use of M50, we will also be able to record time-lapses in 4K and slow-motion films in HD, with the speed of 120 f/s. In addition, as one of really few cameras in its class, it offers a microphone connection, thanks to which it may become popular among vloggers and other people who like to record films and transfer them to the Internet.
