Canon PowerShot ZOOM adds a monocular telephoto camera to the portfolio

It might not be an opportune time to be out and about but Canon thinks people will, at one point in time, want to escape the monotony of the new normal and go outdoors. Some might even take to nature and to the night skies for a bit of reprieve. Those are pretty much the situations where Canon’s newest PowerShot ZOOM camera might be of use, helping people get close to the action even while staying far, far away.

Canon’s PowerShot line is designed for ease of use and you probably can’t get any simpler than this. Coming in a form reminiscent of camcorders, the PowerShot ZOOM is a compact monocular camera that does just one thing and that is to take you closer to your subject matter as quickly and as easily as possible.

To that end, the PowerShot ZOOM offers three telephoto lengths of 100mm, 400mm, and 800mm,

The starship Discovery isn’t in the best place at the beginning of the new season. 


CBS All Access

Star Trek: Discovery’s second season ended with the crew of the USS Discovery jumping 930 years into the future. It was a blind leap into the unknown, with no guarantee of safety or even sentient life. For the crew, that meant leaving behind friends and family nearly a millennia in the past. 

For viewers, this might be the best thing that’s happened to Discovery, which premieres on Thursday on CBS All Access (Disclosure: CBS All Access is owned by ViacomCBS, which also owns CNET).

The show has spent its first two seasons tip-toeing and contorting itself around different aspects of Trek lore, from Michael Burnham’s (Sonequa Martin-Green) relationship with foster brother Spock (Ethan Peck) and father Sarek (James Frain) to the question of bald Klingons and why we had never heard

Canon unveils EOS C70 Cinema camera with RF mount

Canon on Thursday unveiled the EOS C70 4K, its first EOS Cinema camera equipped with an RF mount and designed to offer cinema performance in a still camera form factor.

The camera is akin to a cross between Canon’s standard EOS cameras and a cinema camera, and the addition of an RF mount allows it to take advantage of the same range of lenses offered for its mirrorless devices. As with other cameras in the Cinema line, it’s primarily aimed at high-performance video recording and filmmaking.

In contrast to the typically heavy cinema cameras, the EOS C70 provides similar performance in a more compact and lighter-weight form factor. It weighs just over 2.5 pounds and is actually smaller than DSLRs like the EOS 1D X Mark III.

Alongside the RF mount, the EOS C70 brings other firsts to the Cinema lineup. It features an Intelligence Tracking and Recognition system that
