A few months ago, I noticed a large oak tree standing alone at the top of a field in the countryside not far from home. I made a mental note of the interesting tree, keeping that photo opportunity in the pocket for later application.

Right after a recent snowstorm and during the Canon RF 70-200mm F4 L IS USM Lens review seemed like the perfect timing to photograph this lone tree. The snow minimalized the scene's details, and the lens was a perfect choice to capture it. I pulled the SUV into a snowbank to get out of traffic (there was little on this country road), turned off the vehicle (eliminating the vibration), and photographed the tree until I couldn't think of any more compositions to try and adding any more insurance shots seemed complete overkill.

This scene was filled with bright subjects. At most, changes in lighting through the thick clouds happened slowly. Thus, a manual exposure that pushed the histogram graph to the right edge proved perfect. In this image, ISO 100 provides low noise, f/8 yielded adequate depth of field, and 1/160 with image stabilization activated made getting sharp elbow-rested photos easy.

The focal lengths in the 70-200mm range are among my most used for landscape photography. These focal lengths provide angles of view that make good compositions easy to find. While parked along this road, I used all of these focal lengths, with the tree filling various percentages of the frame, ranging from the 70mm result shared here to the tree nearly filling the frame. An example of the 70-200mm focal length range using this tree is shared in the Canon RF 70-200mm F4 L IS USM Lens review.

I shoot a lot of action and other images where timing is critical to get the perfect shot, with a stress-induced adrenaline rush typically accompanying the moment. A nice change for this image was that I had as much time as I cared to take. The tree was not moving, the snow was not melting, and the clouds were unchanging.

At the longer focal lengths, not much time was needed to get the good compositions. At the wider focal lengths, there was considerably more freedom to position the tree in the minimalistic scene within the frame. My favorite tree position at 70mm is shared here, but I also like the tree toward the upper left, and the tree centered at the bottom in a vertical orientation also looks great (at my wife's request, I ordered a metal print of that image this morning).

Let me introduce you to "Nala," my oldest daughter's year-old goldendoodle. I was looking for a subject to challenge the new Canon RF 70-200mm F4 L IS USM Lens for the review, and Nala happily volunteered. She maintained a great spirit for 25 minutes until the session ended abruptly when another dog arrived.

Not long ago, capturing an eye-sharp image of a big dog in a great pose while running (bouncing) full speed toward and close to the camera was extremely challenging. With the Canon EOS R5's incredible animal eye AF combined with the 20 fps frame rate and the Canon RF 70-200mm F4 L IS USM Lens in front of it, the biggest challenge of this shoot was deciding which of the 1,400+ images on the ProGrade Digital 325GB CFexpress 2.0 Cobalt Memory Card to keep.

Bright white snow is a strong auto-exposure influencer, typically causing the camera to underexpose images. With bright white snow filling greatly differing percentages of the frame during each dog pass, exposure compensation was not optimal. Thus, my most frequently used exposure mode, manual, was the ideal choice.

This shoot's goal was to challenge the camera and lens AF system, so the shallow depth of field provided by a wide-open aperture was best, providing little margin for error. The wide-open aperture in combination with the longest focal length provided the strongest background blur possible, making the subject stand out.

Next, the shutter speed was selected, with freezing motion the goal. I opted for 1/1250-1/1600, choices that proved marginally short enough for this fast dog in some instances.

ISO was the last image brightness factor to be applied. As a rule, snow in the sun should be nearly blown-out white. To determine the optimal brightness, the histogram is the proper tool. The ISO setting was increased until the brightest pixels were registering nearly against histogram graph's right side. Note that the blinkies will likely show before color channel capacities are reached. Use the histogram.

This day was cloudy, and cloudy skies often bring brightness changes. Thus, the histogram required monitoring for ISO adjustment needs.

With the R5 in face and eye detection mode and animal eye AF selected, the remaining job was to keep the dog in the frame while holding down the shutter release as my daughter repeatedly positioned and ran Nala toward the camera.

With the R5 and a good lens, getting the perfect action shots is (often) only a small challenge.

Remarkably, the Canon RF 70-200mm F4 L IS USM Lens is nearly the same size (and weight) as the Canon RF 24-105mm F4L IS USM Lens. Think about the packing space requirement advantage this lens holds.

From Canon U.S.A.:

Need a Digital Photo Assistant? Canon U.S.A. has you Covered with the Company’s First-Ever Photo Culling App

Canon Also Publicly Debuts “PHIL,” the Company’s Computer-Vision Artificial Intelligence Engine

MELVILLE, NY, February 11, 2021– According to a recent report from Keypoint Intelligence, 1.4 trillion photos were taken worldwide in 2020 and 7.4 trillion images were stored1. With these staggering numbers, it could be overwhelming for the average consumer to decide what photos are best to keep and store. Delivering expert photo advice in the form of an app, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announces its Photo Culling app. Compatible with iOS devices2, this brand-new app helps determine a user’s best photos based on scores against four models: sharpness, noise, emotions and closed eyes, using Canon’s Computer Vision Artificial Intelligence Engine known as “PHIL” (abbreviated for Photography Intelligence Learning)3. Additionally, the app will suggest deleting duplicative photos, making it easy for the consumer to free up space on their smartphone.

"In today's ever-changing and overwhelming world, where thousands of photos are captured and stored in a person’s smartphone, consumers need an expert, reliable and intuitive photo tool to help them decide the best photos based on years of trusted knowledge and technology,” said Tatsuro "Tony" Kano, executive vice president and general manager of the Imaging Technologies & Communications Group of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Canon U.S.A.’s new Photo Culling App is the answer and we are proud to see how the company’s Computer Vision technology within this app can assist consumers with finding and keeping their best photos of their fondest moments."

The Photo Culling app features two culling options:

Whole Culling: Determines the best photos based on the absolute best scores against the four models: sharpness, noise, emotions and closed eyes. If the score is over the threshold the user sets, the photo is considered to be the best. The remaining images would be suggested as deletions.

Similar Culling: Determines the best photos based on score comparison among a similar group of photos. The highest-scoring photos within the group are considered the best photos. A second photo may also be selected as the second-best photo within the group. The remaining images would be suggested as deletions. The app is also able to find similar photos and group them together. For example, If a user selects 10 photos of a dog and 10 photos of a sunset, it will break the photos into two groups and find the best photo of each; one of the dog and one of the sunset.

In addition to its culling options, the Photo Culling app also features:

Photo Counts and Storage: Shows the number of photos a user has as well as the amount of phone storage on the Home Screen.

Event Album: Categorizing and placing photos in albums on the Home Screen. These are dynamic albums based on events/date throughout the year and the app will pull events that have a large number of photos and suggest the user review these photos to delete and save space.

Features in the Setting Screens: Displaying the number of photos deleted, the current subscription plan (see details below), option for notifications, parameter setting for each score against sharpness, noise, emotion and closed eyes. Users also can adjust these settings, such as changing how much of an impact noise has on a photo versus closed eyes4.

Dark and Light Mode Settings Screen Option: Displays screens either as a dark or light mode option

Price & Availability*

Available for download via the App Store, the Photo Culling app will be available under two subscription options: $2.99 per month or $14.99 for the year, each with a three-day trial5. For more information, please visit, usa.canon.com/photo-culling-app.

I did not see a press release for this new transmitter, but here is more information from Canon USA:

The Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT (Ver.2) provides some much anticipated upgrades from professionals to make it an even more appealing resource for flash photography when used with the Speedlite EL-1. This updated version allows for wireless rear curtain synchronization to capture ambient light trails and convey a sense of speed for moving subjects. The expansive minimum output range (down to 1/8192 power) gives you increased opportunity for creativity over the flash output from brig... read more

Updated to include Wireless Rear Curtain Synchronization, A Minimum Output Range of 1/8192, and FE Memory.

When used in combination with the Speedlite EL-1, the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT (Ver.2) provides additional benefits* of wireless rear curtain synchronization so the flash fires as the shutter closes to capture beautiful light trails to signify movement of the subject, minimum flash power as low as 1/8192 for even more opportunity to work in low available light, and FE memory so you can store an E-TTL flash exposure and continue to use that same exposure when subjects and scenes remain unchanged.

  • Manual flash power below 1/128th not possible with 600EX-RT series, and 430EX-RT used as receiver units.
  • 2nd curtain sync can be used with Speedlite EL-1, 600EX-RT series and 430EX-RT receiver units, but with EOS R5, R6, or EOS-1D X Mark III cameras only.

Up to 5 groups, or 15 Individual Flashes can be Controlled via 1 Transmitter

The Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT (Ver.2) facilitates radio controlled, two-way wireless transmission up to 98.4 feet, for a reliable and robust connection among sender and receiver units. Communicating on 2.4 GHz frequencies, the ST-E3-RT (Ver.2) does not have the same directional limitations of traditional wireless optical transmitters. Where other wireless signals can be interrupted by physical obstacles, radio controlled systems excel. Fifteen transmission channels are available, selectable manually or automatically (for optimum radio transmission, depending on environment), and radio transmission IDs can be set to prevent interference from other photographers on the same channel. With the extended, more reliable range afforded by radio transmission, ambitious photography is made easier.

Supports E-TTL II Flash, Manual Flash, Stroboscopic and Auto External Flash Metering

With the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT (Ver.2), up to fifteen Canon RT-compatible Speedlites in five groups can be controlled from the camera, via a single transmitter. Each group can be set to a different flash mode, enabling multiple configurations for creative photography. For example, with the ST-E3-RT (Ver.2) some flashes can be directed to operate according to the camera’s E-TTL flash reading, others can be set manually; groups can be set to overexposure or underexpose, and much, much more. With up to fifteen flashes under the control of one transmitter, wirelessly, complex lighting setups normally reserved for the studio are a breeze.

Dot Matrix LCD Panel Displays all Pertinent Information Simultaneously and Backlit Control Panel means Easy Operation

The Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT (Ver.2) features a dot matrix LCD panel (172 x 104 dots). This LCD displays Flash status, flash settings and wireless configuration for any combination of Speedlite EL-1, 600EX-RT series, and 430EX-RT, used off-camera as Receiver units. With the transmitter’s LCD screen combined with backlit operation buttons and even an internal sound emitter, the ST-E3-RT (Ver.2) is as easy to operate in the dark as in daylight.

8 Types of Custom Functions, 3 Types of Personal Functions

To accommodate the demands of a number of different shooting situations, the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT (Ver.2) can be configured with eight different Custom Functions and any of three Personal Functions. Custom Functions include: auto power off, modeling flash controls, sound, illumination and more. Personal Functions include display contrast and LCD panel illumination color for both sender and receiver flashes.

High-Performance Hot Shoe Contacts for Reliable Information Transmission and Operation

The Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT (Ver.2) is built to the standards one would expect from professional Canon camera systems. The hot shoe contact ensures reliable communication between camera and transmitter. Dust and water resistance is excellent as well: all moving parts and areas surrounding the transmitter’s display and buttons are sealed for uninterrupted performance in harsh conditions. A dust and water resistant design for the mounting foot creates a dust and water resistant seal between camera and flash. Compact and lightweight, the ST-E3-RT (Ver.2) is approx. 2.7 (W) x 2.4 (H) x 3.0 (D) in.

DISCLAIMERS

* When used with the Speedlite EL-1 in combination with an EOS R5, EOS R6, EOS-1D X Mark III or EOS M50 Mark II camera. Some features will work with older Speedlite models such as 600EX II-RT, 600EX-RT and 430EX III-RT, and previous EOS cameras, but not all. As of February 3, 2021.

Preorder the Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT (Ver. 2) from B&H.
