    Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI Announcement


    Canon has presented Speedlite 470EX-AI which is the first flash equipped with Auto Intelligent Bounce function.

    Auto Intelligent Bounce technology automatically calculates distance from the surrounding walls and  positions the speedlite head in order to obtain optimal light reflection. 

    A fully automatic flash mode minimally moves the head with each shot. Thanks to this, a photographer does not have to manually correct its settings every time. The flash is also equipped with a semi-automatic mode, which additionally adjusts the flash angle and the flash head during the change of orientation of the camera.

    Apart from this interesting function,  Speedlite 470EX-AI is quite effective as for the speedlite of this type. The guide number of 47 (ISO 100) and a wide range of focal length covering from 24mm to 105mm (or 14mm, with the use of a built-in adapter), enable a wide range of flash, also with the wide-angle shots. 

    New Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI has the HSS synchronization mode, thanks to which it is possible to take photographs with the use of a flash, even with the exposure time which exceeds the maximum flash synchronization time.

    Speedlite has wireless control functions, which enable remote triggering as a transmitter and a trigger. As could be expected of such speed lite, the flash is equipped with an LCD screen, facilitating quick reading of parameters and change of settings. A shortcut button  and a control knob ensure convenient access to the saved modes of work and make it possible to fully control the triggered light. 

    Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI is to appear on sale in April and it will cost $.

      In a set with new macro lenses, Canon also presented the next version of MT24EX flash. Canon MT26EXRT Twin Lite, as the new model is called, is a perfect proposal for macro, product and food photographers. 
      As can be "easily" concluded from its name, the flash has a guide number of 26 for ISO 100 and the power of the flash can be reduced to 1/512 of its maximum power.

      Full reload takes 5.5 seconds, with the use of regular batteries, and 2.5 seconds, with the use of CPE4N batteries. Besides, the flashes are equipped with supporting diodes and diffusors.

      Of course, we also have a head with removable rings in a set, thanks to which we will be able to mount the full set on various lenses.

      Canon MT26EXRT Speedlight is to appear on sale in November. It will cost $900.  
      Canon has made an attempt to steal some splendor from Nikon and it decided to focus on both quantity and quality. The next lenses which are having their premieres today are three tilt-shift macro constructions: TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO and TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO.

      These lenses, thanks to rich possibilities of focus and perspective control, will enable both professionals and more advanced enthusiasts to work even more creatively. The lenses will perfectly fulfill their functions not only in macro photography but also in landscape and portrait photography as well as in movie-making.

      Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO will be a perfect solution for architecture and landscape photography. It is equipped with 12 lenses placed in 9 groups.

      1). Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO
      The TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO model is the lens consisting of 11 elements placed in 7 groups. Apart from macro photographers, it should also find its way to the bags of many portrait and wedding photographers.

      2). Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO
      Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO, just like its predecessor, consists of 11 elements placed in 7 groups. The macro lens has a bit longer focal length which should perfectly fulfill its role outside, and a longer portrait lens.

      3). Canon TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO
      All three lenses are equipped with the optical solutions which enable one to reduce the refraction of light, which hinders accurate focus. Ultra-low dispersion lenses make it possible to achieve better sharpness of the image. The used lens is to ensure the highest quality of the image and its full clarity.

      Tilt-shift in the presented constructions makes it possible to rotate the lens vertically and horizontally, which enables one to minimize all kinds of perspective distortion and regulate the depth of field. We also have a possibility of blocking this rotation in neutral position in order not to change it during the normal use of the lens.

      All three lenses will appear on sale in November and each will cost around $2200.
