B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of Canon’s RF 24-105mm f/4.-7.1 IS STM Lens for mirrorless photographers, updated EOS Rebel T8i DSLR for beginner photographers, and ultra-portable SELPHY QX10 Compact Photo Printer for smartphone-ographers.
Destined to populate everyday carry bags, 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′. Leadscrew-type 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 Control Ring, which doubles as the focusing ring, and the lens includes Focus Control and Stabilizer switches for quick changes.
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, helps keep subjects in focus. Similarly, a 220,000 Pixel AE sensor and EOS iTR AF work together to maintain image quality.
