Canon South Africa's Product Marketing Manager Roger Machin recently visited the Wild Eye office and shared a very informative presentation and training session with our guides.
With camera technology advancing at a rate of knotts it is vital that our guiding team stay up to date with the latest developments in an effort to deliver the absolute best advice to our guests. We are extremely grateful to Roger for sharing his extensive knowledge so freely with us.
I caught up with Roger after his presentation and had a chat about al things Canon and Mirrorless, I hope you'll enjoy either this video or podcast.
As always, I'd love to field any questions and comments you might have and, if you're considering making the move to the Canon mirrorless system, I'd love to connect and help you make the right decision on which camera body and lenses are right for you!
11 Things You Need to Know About the Canon Mirrorless System
Roger Machin is the head of marketing for Canon South Africa and has been working for Canon for more than 25 years. He recently came to the Wild Eye office to give the guides a presentation on the Canon Mirrorless System. I thought that I would share a few things that I learnt about the Canon Mirrorless System from Roger.
The Canon 800mm RF F11 for Wildlife Photography
It is certainly not the most conventional or expected combination of focal length and maximum aperture but the new Canon RF 800mm F/11 piqued my interest from the very first moment I heard it was in the pipeline. I feel that many photographers have immediately dismissed this lens because of its maximum aperture of F/11 but, to be very honest, I was very excited by this and I'll share more on why a bit later.
Moving to Mirrorless on Canon: The EF-EOS R Adapter Explained
With the recent announcement of the new Canon EOS R5 and R6 there has never been more interest in mirrorless technology amongst Canon users. Whilst the initial release of both the R, RP and the range of dedicated RF lenses showed that Canon were committed to mirrorless, its only now that serious wildlife photographers have a viable option in this range.
