From the George Lepp for the Canon Professional Network:
"We’ve had the ability to capture time-lapse images with Canon EOS cameras for some time. What was needed was an interval timer to attach to the camera to fire it at a regulated interval. This interval could be as short as 1 second to as long as days. To do this, you needed to purchase an interval timer (intervolameter) and carry it with you. Canon’s answer for advanced DSLRs is the TC-80N3 Timer/Remote Controller. It has several functions beyond being an interval timer and is usually found in my camera bag. But there have been numerous times that I’ve been out photographing and didn’t have all my tools with me, including the TC-80N3, and I was out of luck when it came to time-lapses.
 
The new Canon EOS 7D Mark II has the interval timer built into the camera. Access the 4th Red Menu on the camera’s LCD and follow the procedure below. You will have the option of setting the number of captures from 1 to 99 or set to “Unlimited.” The time between each exposure can be set from 1 second to 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds."

"The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R represent a new line of ultra high-resolution EOS DSLR cameras – featuring 50.6 Megapixel sensors – that are ideal for photographers who want to capture an extraordinary amount of detail in their images. The new cameras will be popular with those shooting landscape and architectural photography, as well as those shooting commercial or high-end editorial work in the studio.

"Travel photographer and Canon Explorer Joel Santos has recently been using the newly launched EF16-35mm f/4L IS USM wide-angle zoom. As he reveals to CPN Editor David Corfield, the lens has quickly become a firm favourite...
 
The biggest endorsement any photographer can give a piece of equipment, is to actually go out and buy it. For Joel Santos, the new EF16-35mm wide-angle zoom was a recent purchase that has already been proving its worth."

CPN's Inside Canon EOS Utility 3 Software Banner
From the Canon Professional Network:
"The release of Canon’s Digital Photo Professional (DPP) 4 software in mid-2014 was accompanied by an updated version of its EOS Utility software – version 3. EOS Utility 3 acts in tandem with DPP 4 and enables you to download images from a camera’s memory card to your computer, remotely control the camera to capture new images or edit camera settings, such as the image owner’s name. You can then organise and process the imported images in Digital Photo Professional 4. EOS Utility 3 features improvements to form and function and the increased integration between Canon’s two free apps helps to streamline the shooting, importing and editing process. Indeed, you can now launch EOS Utility 3’s Live View window and remote camera shooting panel from within the Digital Photo Professional workspace, which allows the two packages to work together as a tighter team. CPN writer George Cairns takes a closer look at the capabilities of EOS Utility 3 and how it works alongside DPP 4..."
Canon EOS Utility 3.x is available from Canon USA. You must enter a compatible camera model number to download the software.
 
Compatible Cameras with EOS Utility 3.x:
 
  • EOS-1D X
  • EOS-1D C
  • EOS 5D Mark III

The Canon Professional Network: Tips and Tricks has been around for quite some time. It's updated quite regularly with new tidbits of information. Lately, they've been adding items relating to the EOS 7D Mark II and the Speedlite 600EX-RT.
 
From the Canon Professional Network: Tips and Tricks:
Speedlite 600EX-RT: auto assist beam firing
 
Within the camera menus of several EOS models, there is an option to enable or disable the AF assist beam when shooting in low light. If you enable the function on the camera menu, but the AF assist beam on your external Speedlite does not fire, check the Speedlite’s custom function settings. If the custom functions in the Speedlite are set to not fire the AF assist beam, this will over-ride any setting made in the camera menu. To re-enable the AF assist beam, simply switch the Speedlite custom function to allow the beam to fire.
 
EOS 7D Mark II: EOS iTR AF
 
Like the flagship EOS-1D X, the EOS 7D Mark II features EOS iTR AF, which improves autofocus tracking by recognising faces and subject colours in addition to looking for subject contrast. When shooting with the EOS iTR AF function enabled, you may find the AF is actually slightly slower and the maximum shooting speed in continuous high speed AF is slower than expected. This is especially likely in low-light shooting and is due to the extra data being processed from the metering system before a subject can be tracked. If you need the fastest AF possible and want to achieve the maximum frame rate and do not need to make use of the colour and face tracking, switch the EOS iTR AF setting to ‘disable’.
I suggest bookmarking the Tips and Tricks page and checking it periodically. Even if you're very familiar with your camera gear, you will likely find a useful gem.

Getting close to nature is what all wildlife photographers will tell you as their main motivation. Danny Green is no exception. As one of the UK’s finest natural history lensmen, his work is beyond compare when it comes to understanding the wild world around us.
 
Of course, in this business the tools help, and as a loyal Canon user Danny has based his business – and won his reputation – around the EF system of incredible lenses. And for the new EF100-400mm zoom, he has nothing but praise...
