When I think about portraiture, I think of Gregory Heisler. When I think about photojournalism, Joe McNally is who I think of first.
 
I've been a big fan of Joe McNally's work for several years now. To me, Joe's work perfectly blends creative storytelling with technical skill. Watching this video simply confirmed what I already knew – that Joe's a master of his craft. [Sean]
 
From the Joe McNally YouTube Channel:
 
Joe McNally Photojournalist Exhibition at the Monroe Gallery of Photography in Santa Fe, New Mexico. A 30 year retrospective of Joe McNally's diverse and dynamic images. Joe reflects on the passage of time. Sidney Monroe discusses collector's rising interest in photojournalism as a fine art.

Canon EOS 7D II, 1D X and 5D Mark III AF Point Comparison
Ever since the 7D Mark II was announced, the big question on my mind has been "How does the 7D Mark II AF system compare to the best-ever-prior AF system found in the 1D X and 5D Mark III?"
 
The 1D X and 5D Mark III AF systems are easily the best I've ever used and my in-focus hit rate when using these cameras, especially with subjects in motion, has never been higher. Then the 7D Mark II was announced with even more focus points (including a higher number of cross-type AF points) and many of the same or even improved AF features found in the 1D X/5D Mark III.
 
To answer this question, Chuck Westfall (Advisor, Technical Information, Canon USA) was gracious enough to prepare a detailed technical comparison for us. Chuck's information is a must-read for anyone choosing between these three DSLRs:

Canon EOS C300-Cinema-Camera
MELVILLE, N.Y., November 14, 2014 - Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce that Academy Award-Nominated director Sebastian Junger (Restrepo, Korengal) and cinematographer Rudy Valdez chose Canon EOS Digital Cinema cameras and lenses for their new documentary The Last Patrol, the third installment of Junger's trilogy of war documentaries. The pair of filmmakers relied on the Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema camera to capture The Last Patrol, which premiered on HBO on November 10, 2014 and is currently airing on HBO.
 
The Last Patrol follows Junger, photojournalist Guillermo Cervera, and combat veterans Brendan O'Byrne and Dave Roels as they hike the 300-mile stretch of railroad lines from Washington, D.C. to New York City - a trek Junger originally planned with his close friend and acclaimed war photographer Tim Hetherington before Hetherington was killed in 2011 while covering the Libyan civil war. The goal of the journey was to get to know America again after a decade of war and discuss why combat is so incredibly hard to give up. Because hiking along the tracks is illegal, they moved with a purposeful invisibility designed to echo the isolation felt by many who return from war.
 
"The Last Patrol is a compelling example of the kind of storytelling that the Cinema EOS system was designed to support," said Yuichi Ishizuka, President and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "We are honored that the filmmakers selected Canon professional cameras and lenses for their epic project."
 
The men lived outdoors and carried all of their own supplies, which presented an unusual challenge for the filmmakers.
 
"What I needed was, basically, the ultimate camera," said Junger. "Not too heavy, easy to use with numb fingers, good in low light, rugged if you throw yourself in a ditch, and something that delivers absolutely gorgeous cinematography."
 
After searching for a camera that would produce a consistent, top-of-the-line image under rough conditions, Junger and Valdez determined the Cinema EOS C300 digital cinema camera was the best camera for the job.
 
"The EOS C300 camera seemed like it was designed specifically for this project," said Valdez. "It's a lightweight camera with a large sensor that works really well in low light. With the added bonus of being able to shoot in Canon Log, it ended up being a pretty easy decision."
 
Carrying the EOS C300 digital cinema camera on his back during the entire trek, Valdez shot using only natural light while the former soldiers and combat journalists dodged rail security and hiked terrain as varied as dense wilderness and urban streets.
 
The images Valdez captured exceeded Junger's expectations: "When we watched the material, I was absolutely speechless. It all absolutely glowed with a kind of meaning. That glow came from the machine we were shooting on."
 
Valdez rounded out his kit with a set of Canon Cinema prime lenses, including the CN-E24mm T1.5 L F, CN-E50mm T1.3 L F and CN-E85mm T1.3 L F.
 
"After some days on the trek, I started looking at the camera with a kind of reverence," said Junger. "It was incredible. I can't imagine making this film with any camera that lacked the power and capability of the EOS C300 camera."
