The Canon that we know is OVER!! No more Canon EF lenses?
Okay, okay, I know it’s not that dramatic!! As I’m sure a lot of you have heard, Canon has announced they will no longer develop EF mount lenses. That is, unless the market demands it. They are going to be focusing all of their lens development efforts on the new RF lenses. This is HUGE news because Canon first rolled out the EF mount in 1987. That means the EF mount is older than me!! Continue reading →

Take a look at why I feel the Sony A7sii is possibly still a good camera for some users in 2020. New camera gear comes out almost every day it seems. The camera market has changed so much in the last year alone, that it’s become almost nauseating to follow along. With the introduction of camera that shoot 61MP images, or 6K RAW video footage, why would I still recommend a camera that came out 5 years ago? (With a 12MP sensor no less.) Continue reading →
Why Photographers and Filmmakers are Moving from eBay to Gear Focus to Sell Their Used Camera Gear
It’s no secret that eBay is a HUGE website, with tons of users and listings. The sheer number of users is an incredible draw for people looking to sell something. But what many people don’t realize when they first list an item are all the fees that go along with selling. It can add up to 12% or MORE just to sell something on eBay. And you will receive an invoice at the end of the month, leaving confusion on how much you really made off the sale. (A sneaky business model) The number of users and listings sounds like a good thing at first. But for an unfocused platform like eBay, all these listings can start to muddle the search really quickly. That is why creatives are moving from eBay to Gear Focus and other alternatives for selling used camera gear.
2019 brought us a lot of really great gear from all types of different manufacturers. The rate at which technology is changing is absolutely insane. I remember when I worked as an AV Design Engineer when I graduated from college, 4K was barely even a thing. I worked there for 2 years and when I left in 2017, 4K was starting to really come onto the scene. Now, if you don’t have 4K, you’re a thing of the past and obsolete. This is the best camera gear of 2019 & new camera gear for 2020 that we’re most excited about.
