Canon DSLR Cameras Introduction and mounts

This video is a follow-up of my Canon Lens nomenclature.  This time I show you which Canon DSLR and DSLM (mirrorless) cameras come with which mount.  I also introduce my classification system and explain who would benefit more from each level of Canon cameras.

Description from YouTube:

In this video, I introduce the various Canon DSLR cameras along with their mounts.  This video will help you find which lenses are compatible with which cameras by understanding the mount of each Canon DSLR camera.  I also introduce each model by explaining where they sit in the food chain, and who is likely to be interested in each type of camera.

Here is the table shown in this video:

Canon S90 vs iPhone 4S vs Canon T2i Video Test

This video, updated on YouTube on October 16, 2011, serves as a comparison between the Canon S90 point & shoot camera, the iPhone 4S smart phone, and the Canon T2i DSLR camera.  It is rather impressive how well the iPhone 4S does compared to the Canon T2i.  With proper color correction and proper lighting, you can definitely take great videos from this smart phone.  You can also see how far along the iPhone has come when you compare it to the Canon S90 point & shoot, which was Canon’s most advanced point & shoot at the time.

Description from YouTube:

This is a comparison of the Canon S90, the iPhone 4S, and the Canon T2i. Note that the S90 captures in 480p, which explains why it’s pretty nice at 480p, but fails at full screen 1080p.

iPhone 4S Video Test 720p

This review was done on October 14, 2011 for the iPhone 4S.  The image quality is quite impressive for having been captured from a phone.  From now on, you can expect most major smart phones to give point & shoot cameras a run for their money.

iPhone 4S test in 720p resolution.  1080p full-HD version will follow as soon as I figure out why youtube downconverts it.
