From Canon Global:
 
TOKYO, November 8, 2019—Canon Inc. and Canon Marketing Japan Inc. announced today that Canon-brand equipment comprised an approximately 70% share of cameras1 used by press photographers at match venues during the knock out stage of Rugby World Cup 2019. Throughout the tournament, Canon has empowered professional photographers aiming to capture decisive moments and contributed to the success of the tournament.
 
Professional photographers demand comprehensive assistance from camera makers, including state-of-the-art technology, top-class performance, customized service and a strong support network.
 
Canon is active behind the scenes at a wide variety of sporting events, aiming to achieve "zero downtime" for professional photographers so they're never forced to stop and miss definitive moments of these intense competitions. For decades, the Company has built a reliable reputation and helped support journalists on the front lines through a wide range of services. Thanks to such efforts, Canon-brand equipment comprised an approximately 70% share of cameras1 used by press photographers at match venues during the knock out stage of Rugby World Cup 2019.
 
At each of the matches held between the 12 tournament venues, Canon has aimed to help realize a successful tournament as an official sponsor by establishing service stations within stadium grounds to provide fast maintenance and repair of equipment. In addition, the Company provided such services as on-site emergency repair and equipment loans.
 
Canon will continue striving to create competitive, highly reliable products and, through such on-site support of journalists as equipment maintenance, contribute to the further advancement of photographic and videographic expression.
 
Comment from Paul Gilham, Director of Getty Images, the official photo agency of RWC 2019, and camera service booth user
Getty Images is delighted to continue working with official Rugby World Cup Partner, Canon. Our photographers demand cutting edge technology and a camera they can rely on. Canon's amazing service and support during the tournament in Japan has ensured our photographers were equipped to capture the images that will tell the story of Rugby World Cup, creating a lasting legacy of iconic moments.
1 Average of data obtained from the 8 matches of the knock out stage. Based on a Canon survey.

From the Adorama YouTube Channel:
 
Battery powered flashes are great for shooting portraits on location. There's plenty to choose from and they vary between small speedlights and bigger, more powerful monolights. In theory more power means more light and that's usually a good thing for location portraits but can a speedlight be used to light location portraits like a monolight? That's the question Gavin Hoey puts to the test in this video.
 
Gavin sets each flash the challenge of being used as a simple fill flash, creating dramatic skies by "over powering" the ambient light and finally getting some beautiful shallow depth of field portraits using HSS (high speed sync) flash. The results might surprise you!

This second newly-designed Art zoom lens from Sigma is a large-aperture standard zoom for full-frame mirrorless camera systems and is available in Sony E-mount and L-mount. The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 offers best-in-class performance due to a sophisticated optical design that delivers high resolution throughout the entire zoom range. This new Art zoom lens from Sigma follows the debut of the lauded 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN Art zoom for mirrorless cameras. The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN Art lens exerts superiority in mirrorless camera-dedicated designs, resulting in a reduced lens size and weight while achieving uniformity and high resolution from the center to the periphery throughout the zoom range. Compatibility with the latest mirrorless camera bodies and functions assists in various photographic environments and meets the high demands of both professional and advanced amateur photographers.
 
Key features include:

  1. Best-in-class optical performance. The F2.8 Art flagship zoom lens series is developed to achieve superior optical performance. By employing three aspheric lenses, this zoom lens thoroughly subdues aberrations such as axial chromatic aberration or sagittal coma aberrations, which are difficult to correct in post-processing, tailors the resolution and achieves uniformity and superior optical performance from the center to the periphery throughout the zoom range. In addition to Super Multi-Layer Coating, Sigma’s proprietary Nano Porous Coating is employed to achieve high-contrast and clear image quality. This lens is designed to be less affected by strong incident light such as flare.
  2. Ensuring compatibility with the latest full-frame mirrorless camera bodies. The Sigma 24–70mm F2.8 DG DN ensures compatibility with various types of the latest full-frame mirrorless camera bodies for Sony E-mount and L-mount, (including the new Sigma fp camera), capable of exerting the best performance under any photographic circumstances.
  3. Flexibility for various uses and photographic environments. Featuring a dust and splash-proof body and zoom lock mechanism for preventing the lens barrel from extending unexpectedly, the 24-70mm F2.8 meets a wide range of needs for a variety of photographic environments. The maximum magnifications are 1:2.9 at the wide-angle end and 1:4.5 at the telephoto end, which provides a wider range of expression for close-up photography. The minimum focusing distance is 18 cm at the wide-angle end.

Additional features:

  • Zoom lock switch
  • Lens hood with a lock
  • Mount with dust- and splash-proof structure
  • Compatible with the Lens Aberration Correction
  • Available Mount conversion service
  • Designed to minimize flare and ghosting
  • Evaluation with Sigma’s own MTF measuring system: A1
  • 11-blade rounded diaphragm
  • High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount
  • “Made in Japan” craftsmanship

The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN Art will be available in L-mount and Sony E-mount in mid-November 2019 through authorized US dealers. Pricing will be announced at a later date.

This image was one of my Katmai National Park goals. I wanted a straight-on, tightly-cropped bear face image and the image shared here was my favorite from this trip.
 
The bear was huge. The September coat was beautiful. The pose was almost perfectly straight-on with some catchlights in the eyes. The water drops falling from the bear's snout show that it is active. No, that is not lipstick and yes, it is looking at me. Fortunately, these bears like the taste of salmon and not that of people.
 
I could have made use of a 1.4x extender behind the Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM Lens for this image but didn't have time to install it. Fortunately, the Canon EOS 5Ds R resolution is so high that this heavy crop still has adequate resolution. A Wimberley Gimbal Head made controlling the large lens effortless and sitting on a small stool makes the time with the bears quite comfortable.
 
Picture yourself sitting alongside a remote creek in Katmai National Park filling memory cards while photographing these giant bears catching salmon, playing, fighting, etc. That's the opportunity I had and that is the opportunity you have in September 2020! Plan on joining me for the Brown Bear Chasing Salmon, Remote Katmai National Park, Alaska instructional photo tour.
