Canon EOS R5: Reviews mostly positive, with one common complaint

Some initial impressions by Clinton Stark on the new mirrorless flagship Canon EOS R5. For the longest time the internet cried out loud for Canon to innovate. After all Sony had jumped into mirrorless long before and Canon was slow to transition from DSLR. Finally in 2018 that changed. With the...

Panasonic S5: But that autofocus…

I had such high hopes. And my S5 first impressions were largely (very) positive. But in the end the Panasonic S5 is (surprisingly) not the hybrid going forward for Stark Insider photography and video projects. Shame that. It ticked so many boxes, including a special 96MP High Resolution mode for...
