    Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI Announcement

      News

    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 $.

      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.
