by Blogger on ‎03-21-2013 08:45 AM - last edited on ‎03-27-2013 01:17 PM by Community Manager

Canon is a leader in the digital photography industry and it’s always big news when the company releases new gear. However, nothing gets the attention of photographers the way the announcement of a new EOS Rebel DSLR does. The Rebel has been the go-to DSLR for “prosumers” since 1990, providing the ideal balance of high end capabilities, ease of use, power and accessories that have made it the focal point of millions of digital photography kits. Canon Canada has just introduced the new Canon EOS Rebel T5i, the new flagship of the Rebel series, packing upgrades like an 18MP CMOS sensor, Creative Filters and a 3.0-inch Vari-Angle touchscreen display. 


Review: Canon G12 Camera

by Blogger on ‎10-04-2012 10:53 PM - last edited on ‎03-21-2013 08:50 AM by Blogger

About a year ago I decided I wanted to start dabbling in photography. I wasn’t quite in the market for a full-blown SLR, but I also knew that my existing Canon PowerShot wouldn’t really cut it when it came to exploring the art of photography. After a little bit of research and a few discussions with my much more creative friends, I opted for the Canon G12. While it’s still considered a point-and-shoot, it brings to the table a whole lot more functionality than your standard pocket sized camera, making it a stalwart of the high-end compact camera market. In fact, the G12 was specifically designed to satisfy the demands of those photogs that want a powerful backup to their SLR … who knew?? 


Two Rebels face off: Canon T3i vs. Canon T4i

by ShelaghM on ‎09-29-2012 03:04 PM - last edited on ‎03-21-2013 08:50 AM by Blogger

The Canon Rebel series changed our relationship with DSLR cameras - making it easier for Point-and-Shoot users to produce high quality photos.


The T3i was an instant hit when it was first released in 2011 followed by the June 2012 release of the T4i.


Both are stellar cameras but what are their differences and which model is best for your photography needs?


The NEW Canon EOS Rebel T4i DSLR Camera

Canon has just launched its’ newest camera, the EOS Rebel T4i. It is considered a “mid-level” DSLR, but for the amateur photographer or serious tourist that wants to take high quality pictures like a pro this is a great camera. If you are familiar with the Canon Rebel T3i, this camera looks extremely similar on the outside in both size and shape. Where Canon has made all of its’ improvements is on the inside, and they have made some excellent ones.

Capture back to school memories with a Canon Camcorder

by Blogger on ‎09-08-2011 04:00 PM - last edited on ‎03-21-2013 08:52 AM by Blogger

When you are in the middle of the back to school rush, it’s easy to forget to pick up a camera and capture the all-important moments that happen to your family. You can take quick photos with your phone of your 1st grader’s first full day of classes, soccer tryouts, or even the back to school haircuts, but the one thing many parents regret when their kids are grown is not taking enough video. Although most smart phones are equipped with exceptional video cameras, you don’t always want to trust your cell phone to capture important events.  This school year, capture every single moment in high quality HD video with the Canon VIXIA HF R20 Camcorder.


Why Go SLR?

by TechLinz The Captain on ‎07-28-2011 10:26 AM - last edited on ‎09-01-2011 01:49 PM by Community Manager (Retired)

Simple point and shoot cameras have come a long way over the past few years. They offer zoom lenses, a high number of mega-pixels plus improved built-in software to correct common photography mistakes; all in a compact and user-friendly design. So the question remains, why would I want to purchase a Digital SLR camera? What justifies the increased cost and carrying around a much larger device?

High Tech Cameras - Digital SLR

by Blogger on ‎04-16-2011 09:20 PM - last edited on ‎09-01-2011 01:50 PM by Community Manager (Retired)

Most people, myself included, buy point and shoot digital cameras because they take nice pictures, are easy to use, are fairly inexpensive, and small enough to fit in your pocket.  A friend of mine recently bought a high end digital SLR camera and I have to say it is amazing!  He isn't a professional photographer, but the camera has allowed him to take some absolutely fantastic pictures that you would never be able to do with a point and shoot model.  Before you buy the most common point and shoot models you should seriously consider a digital SLR.

There's a couple weeks left before the NHL playoffs begin. How will you begin your playoff journey? Start a playoff beard, get the team flags installed on your car window, or maybe wear your favorite team jersey and walk the streets to cheer them on? I, like millions of other facebook users, will usually find interesting posts on hockey fan pages and one came onto my feed recently from a local Vancouver artist who showed pride for the city and the Vancouver Canucks. This music video caught my attention so I wanted to share it here.

It’s that time of year again. The kids are going back to school and fall is looming on the horizon. That can only mean one thing – football season is upon us. Like many parents with kids in sports, all you really want to do is capture your star player in his or her moment of glory and be able to look at the photo years later without having to squint through the blurriness to make out their jersey number.
