0Share

The latest news from Canon offers a little something for every type of photographer. Have you joined Canon’s mirrorless ranks? The RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM Lens is a lightweight, compact lens with a flexible working range for its full-frame RF-mount lineup. In the market for a first DSLR? The EOS Rebel T8i DSLR updates Canon’s entry-level DSLR options for beginners. Tired of staring at your photos on a phone screen? The SELPHY QX10 Compact Photo Printer lets you print 2.7" square dye-sub prints from your smart device anywhere.

RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM Lens

Destined to be a favorite everyday carry lens, the RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM Lens provides impressive coverage while remaining surprisingly lightweight and compact. The ability to capture raindrops on a leaf in one shot and an entire tree in the next without switching lenses will be especially useful for mirrorless photographers working in the field who want to minimize the risk of sensor contamination from dust and dirt in the environment. At nearly half the weight (13.92 oz) and a fraction of the size of its fixed-aperture brethren, it travels with ease.

For small, fast-moving subjects, autofocus performs at 0.4x at 0.66'. Lead screw-type Stepper Motor technology (STM) keeps AF smooth whether shooting stills or video. You can get even closer using the lens’s Center Macro Focus feature, focusing as close as 0.43' with a magnification of 0.5x. Five stops of Optical Image Stabilization will help keep your images sharp while shooting handheld. Adjustments can be made using the Control Ring, which doubles as the focusing ring, and the lens includes Focus Control and Stabilizer switches for quick changes.

EOS Rebel T8i DSLR Camera

Canon’s new entry-level DSLR is aimed at beginners looking to enter the interchangeable lens camera world. A number of features separate the T8i from its predecessor, including an all-new DIGIC 8 image processor, 7 fps continuous still shooting, 4K 24p video recording, and vertical video support. A 24.1MP APS-C CMOS sensor keeps images detail-rich, combining with its new processor to handle a variety of lighting environments thanks to an ISO range of 100-25600, expandable to 51200. Face Detection, as well as 45-point All Cross-type AF, help keep subjects in focus. Similarly, a 220,000 Pixel AE sensor and EOS iTR AF work together to maintain image quality.

Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities simplify image sharing and uploading. The T8i is available as a body only, as well as bundled with an 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens
