Lighting Mods just posted a great article on how to figure out just how old your Canon Lens is AND where it was manufactured. This could really be helpful, especially when purchasing used lenses. Check it out.

Shortly after I purchased my Canon Digital Rebel XT, Canon came out with their Digital Rebel XTi. The Rebel XTI  was a jump from 8.0  megapixels to 10.0 megapixels. But the real kicker, IMHO, was the exclusive EOS Integrated Cleaning System featuring a Self Cleaning Sensor. Imagine a camera that could clean it’s own sensor? How cool was that? Well now, Canon has come out with the Digital Rebel XSi. So what’s new and improved this time?

The EOS Rebel XSi brings staggering technological innovation to the masses. It features Canon’s EOS Integrated Cleaning System, Live View Function, a powerful DIGIC III Image Processor, plus a new 12.2-megapixel CMOS Sensor and is available in a kit with the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens with Optical Image Stabilizer. The EOS Rebel XSi’s refined, ergonomic design includes a new 3.0-inch LCD monitor, compatibility with SD and SDHC Memory cards and new accessories that enhance every aspect of the photographic experience.

A couple of days ago I showed you a link to magazines that you could sell your photos to. This is good for any photographer using any camera. However, for those of you who prefer the Canon EOS series, why not consider selling your photos to the EOS Magazine?

EOS Magazine, a specialist photography publication published in the UK and aimed at owners of that kind of Canon, takes 80 percent of its images from freelancers. You don’t have to be a professional (although when it comes to the payment, that might help), and you don’t have to be commissioned (although you might be asked for more images in the future.) But you do have to take the shot with a Canon EOS. The make of the lens doesn’t matter so much.

Rates vary and range from £15 (c. $31) to £60 (c. $123) depending on the size of the image used. In addition, the magazine sometimes includes a double-page spread of one outstanding photograph. That image must be in horizontal format — and exceptional — and pays £250 (c. $516). [Read the rest of the article]

Photopreneur provides some good information on publication in EOS Magazine but also suggests if you don’t use an EOS series camera you might want to try submitting articles to these two magazines: Blackflash or Digital Photo.

If you’re like me, sometimes there are situations where you don’t want to haul around your camera gear with lenses and flashes. What you really need is something simple enough to get the job done, but complex enough to allow you to shoot RAW and use flash. You don’t want anything too clunky. You know just something that fits in a pocket that you can pull out during those unexpected times when you find yourself wanting to shoot something.

Well my friends, check out PopPhoto’s latest review of the Canon Powershot G9. I believe this is the compact camera for me.

If you’re thinking about a new camera and you like Canon, you’re definitely going to want to check out the PopPhoto review of the latest Digital SLR from Canon…the EOS 40D.

The EOS 40D becomes the sixth Canon ‘prosumer’ digital SLR, a line which started back in 2000 with the EOS D30, and how far we’ve come. It’s been eighteen months since the EOS 30D and although on the surface the 40D looks like a fairly subtle upgrade there’s a lot that makes this an even better camera. Of course we expect a step up in megapixels, and so the 40D comes with a ten million pixel CMOS sensor with the same sort of dust reduction as the EOS 400D, an ultrasonic platform which shakes the low pass filter. Other improvements bring the EOS 40D closer into line with the EOS-1D series, these include a move to the same page-by-page menu system, both RAW and sRAW (2.5 MP), 14-bit A/D converter and 14-bit RAW, cross-type AF points for F5.6 or faster lenses, a larger and brighter viewfinder, interchangeable focusing screens, a larger LCD monitor (3.0″) and faster continuous shooting (6.5 fps).

Canon today sets new standards for professional photography with the launch of the EOS-1D Mark III. Delivering 10 frames per second at 10.1 Megapixels for a maximum burst of 110 Large JPEG images (30 in RAW), the EOS-1D Mark III replaces the EOS-1D Mark II N as the world’s fastest digital SLR. Dual “DIGIC III” processors drive the camera’s high speed, high resolution performance, and bring 14-bit image processing to the EOS series for the first time. (via dpReview
