Noise test results have been added to the Canon EOS 90D and the EOS M6 Mark II reviews.

You are going to notice that the results from these two cameras appear remarkably similar. They are using the same imaging sensor and the same DIGIC processor and are expected to have identical image quality. As this is a very time consuming test, including carefully capturing 180 images and prepping a crop from each, I opted to fully test only one of the cameras (the 90D) and show the same results for the M6 II.

A full narrative of the results is coming soon. In the meantime, create your own comparisons including a look at dynamic range using the +/- exposure variations.

From Canon U.S.A.:

CAPTURE THE BEAUTY OF THE NIGHT SKY WITH CANON’S FIRST FULL-FRAME MIRRORLESS CAMERA FOR ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY

Introducing the EOS Ra Camera with Specialized Filtration that Delivers Four Times Greater Hydrogen-alpha Wavelength (656.3 nm) Transmittance Compared to the EOS R

MELVILLE, N.Y., November 5, 2019 — In the words of poet Quintus Ennius, “No one regards what is before his or her feet; we all gaze at the stars.” Helping to gaze and capture the beauty of the stars and beyond, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the company’s first full-frame mirrorless camera for astrophotography, the EOS Ra. This new camera was built off the EOS R system combining new features, such as four times greater transmittance of hydrogen-alpha (Ha) light of 656.3 nm compared to the original EOS R. For astrophotographers and hobbyists who enjoy capturing the detailed splendor of the night sky, the new EOS Ra will be an ideal camera to shoot with.

“Since the introduction of the EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera system last fall, Canon has remained committed to launching a line of impressive and innovative EOS R models and a strong variety of RF lenses and accessories to meet the needs of every skill level of photographer,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As a group of photographers who are passionate about capturing what we can’t see with our naked eyes, the new EOS Ra is designed for astrophotographers looking to capture vivid imagery of the night sky.”

Targeting the needs of astrophotographers, the new EOS Ra full-frame mirrorless camera incorporates many advanced features of the EOS R, such as RF mount design, a 30.3MP CMOS sensor, high-precision electronic viewfinder, high-sensitivity, low-noise performance and 4K time-lapse shooting. Optional accessories include an AC adapter kit, which allows the camera to be powered through an AC wall outlet or a battery-powered inverter, a BG-E22 battery grip and three EF-EOS R mount adapters to accommodate the entire range of over seventy EF & EF-S lenses.

Other features include:

  • Enhanced transmission of Ha rays (656.3 nm wavelength) through an infrared cutoff filter, helping to capture high-precision images of the deep-red wavelengths emitted by nebulae in vivid color, without any special camera alterations.
  • A 30x maximum magnification, allowing users to make extremely precise manual focus adjustments*.
  • Support for all Canon RF, EF and EF-S lenses (with the use of an optional EF-EOS R mount adapter), including more than 70 lenses from the EF series as well as RF series lenses, which deliver superb image quality. The variety of lenses, such as the large-diameter f/1.2 lenses, ultra-wide-angle lenses, and super-telephoto EF lenses, among others, are all well suited to help photographers to choose the best match for their specific astrophotography purposes.

Availability and Pricing

The Canon EOS Ra full-frame mirrorless camera is scheduled to be available in mid-December 2019 for an estimated retail price of $2,499.00 for the body only**.

* This magnification ratio applies to the camera only. Not supported by EOS Utility.
**Specifications, availability and prices are subject to change without notice. Actual prices are set by individual dealers and may vary.

Preorders

Preorders for the Canon EOS Ra open on Tuesday Nov 19 At 12:01AM EST. If you are going to make one of these cameras yours, stop back here and use one of these links to place your order: B&H | Adorama | WEX

Without fanfare, the Canon EOS Ra has appeared, available for preorder at Adorama.

Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera dedicated to deep sky and night sky photography

Capture the intricacies of a starry night sky with the new EOS Ra camera — Canon’s first full-frame mirrorless camera dedicated to deep sky and night sky photography. Building on the success of the EOS R, the EOS Ra offers 30x magnification in both the viewfinder and in Live View shooting for more accurate focus.

Modified Filter for Enhanced Night Sky Recording

Positioned in front of the CMOS imaging sensor, The EOS Ra’s infrared-cutting filter is modified to permit approximately 4x as much transmission of hydrogen alpha rays at the 656nm wavelength, vs. standard EOS R cameras. This allows for a higher transmission of deep red infrared rays emitted by nebulae, without requiring any other specialized optics or accessories.

Visit Adorama for more details.

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.

Plan to increase your wildlife photography skills while capturing portfolio-grade images on this bucket-list-grade trip! Learn more here.

From Pam Clark (Adobe Blog):

Photoshop, now available on your iPad; Adobe Fresco available on your iPad and Windows devices; the Creative Cloud Desktop app; Adobe Aero; the new cloud documents system; and a major update to Photoshop on your desktop.

I am thrilled to invite you to join us at the beginning of something new. The official debut of Photoshop on the iPad and the cloud documents system, a major new release of Photoshop, a new AR app called Adobe Aero; Adobe Fresco on Windows; and quite a lot more.

Today marks a significant evolution of Photoshop. This includes:

  • Photoshop on the desktop– We are shipping a major update to Photoshop today with many fabulous performance improvements, new Sensei AI and machine learning magic, new industry-leading editing capabilities, and an integrated cloud documents system to seamlessly save your PSDs across all your devices with Photoshop, with no importing or exporting required. This is the same world class Photoshop that powers your creative work, with lots of new added goodness. Download here.
  • Photoshop on the iPad– Version 1.0 launches today. This is just the beginning of our journey to expand Photoshop to devices, increasing your choices on how to work using Photoshop. We are launching the first version on the iPad, starting with Photoshop’s top workflows, compositing, masking and retouching, with more to come. Over time, we’ll add more capabilities and workflows as we learn more about how customers use Photoshop on a mobile device. With Photoshop on the iPad, you can open and edit your PSDs anytime, anywhere. You can see and edit your layered documents and create with many of your favorite Photoshop features using mobile and touch. It is reimagined with a new user experience completely redesigned for the iPad with touch and mobility top of mind. Photoshop on your iPad seamlessly connects to Photoshop on your desktop through the new integrated cloud documents system. More info here.
  • Cloud documents– Cloud documents undergoes a major expansion today to support the PSD format. This is a new system that first launched in Adobe XD last year. Today’s evolution enables you to seamlessly save your PSDs among your Photoshop apps and Adobe Fresco, and adds support for Adobe Aero, the new Creative Cloud desktop app and Assets.Adobe.com. For Photoshop, you can access and edit the same document across surfaces without unnecessary imports, conversions, quality loss or exports- no pixel destruction!Also shipping today and connected to Photoshop via cloud documents:
    • Adobe Fresco– the new painting and drawing app for the iPad that also uses PSDs and links to Photoshop and the cloud documents system. Today it also launches on Windows. (Download on Windows | iPad)
    • Adobe Aero– a new mobile iOS app for designers to create, share and view interactive, immersive experiences set in Augmented Reality. Make your layered PSDs interactive starting today! Whaaaaat? Try it out! Download here.
    • Creative Cloud Desktop– the new desktop application that is a portal to your Creative Cloud world of apps, services, collaboration and more.

For the product team, shipping our first version of Photoshop on the iPad and the cloud documents system is a huge milestone that comes after more than a year of intense work. It is a great burst of energy for us into the world. For you, the customer, this first 1.0 version is just the starting line. We plan to shape this new experience together with you, our customers.

Here’s more about the Photoshops, the cloud document system, and the associated apps that we are releasing today:

The journey begins with Photoshop on the iPad

When we started this project, it was hard for me to envision how we would reimagine the Photoshop desktop interface into a beautiful, performant experience optimized for pencil and touch on a smaller screen, while also retaining the power, depth and flexibility of Photoshop.

Photoshop on the iPad is built using the same code base as Photoshop on the desktop. This means you can open and edit the same PSD in Photoshop on your desktop or iPad without worrying about conversions, compressions, imports or exports. Photoshop on the iPad supports large files and many, many layers, just like Photoshop on your desktop, preserving your data across devices. The edits you make, whether making layer adjustments, masking, or spot healing, will produce the same results across devices because the app is powered by the same desktop engine.

One very important thing to note: This is the beginning. The first version of Photoshop on iPad is focused on compositing, basic retouching, and masking, common tasks and workflows that we know will be useful for most Photoshop users. Over time, we’ll add more capabilities and workflows as we learn more about how customers use Photoshop on a mobile device.

We plan to add new capabilities as quickly as possible on a regular cadence of releases, which will begin after MAX 2019. We’re releasing with a set of features we know all Photoshop users will need and plan to add capabilities as we see how customers use Ps on the iPad. While leveraging the same code base helps accelerate development, we’re also deeply committed to rethinking every experience for the pencil and touch screen to give you the best Photoshop experience possible no matter what environment you work in. We know we have more work to do and we encourage you to share what’s important to you after you’ve tried the product.

To orient you, the standard Photoshop toolbar is on the left, modernized for touch. Layers are on the right, modernized for a smaller screen to maximize canvas space. You can also see a detailed layers panel, just like desktop if that’s your preference.

All your work is automatically saved to the cloud using a new system we are also introducing today that we call cloud documents (details on that below). All your cloud documents are PSDs and are automatically saved across all your Photoshops and available to edit everywhere Photoshop is. So whether you flip over to check your email, head back to the home screen, or walk away from your iPad, you won’t lose your work.

We have some in-app tours and video tutorials to get you started and a new home button that takes you to where you can continue existing projects or start new ones. Currently you can export to PNG, JPEG, PSD, TIFF.

The help icon, which is the ? in the top right corner, takes you to help and community forums where we’d love for you to participate.

Today, Photoshop on the iPad is available to all Creative Cloud customers who have a subscription to Photoshop.

  • Existing Photoshop subscribers: Simply download Photoshop on your iPad from the iOS app store (also on your iPad), log in with your Adobe ID and take it for a whirl. It is included in your subscription.

Cloud documents

Cloud documents provide a streamlined method to work, share and manage creative documents across devices. This system is deeply integrated into Photoshop on the desktop and iPad, Adobe Fresco and Adobe Aero. Cloud documents enable you to work on your projects seamlessly across apps. Instead of exporting and importing files, simply connect to the internet, open your PSD from the app Home Screen and pick up where you left off. If you’ve been using Adobe XD, this workflow will be familiar as we use the same system for XD files. We are thrilled to integrate the cloud document capabilities into Photoshop and expand our support to PSDs today. (When a PSD is in the cloud, we’ve changed the extension to PSDC, “C” for cloud. It retains all the same characteristics and capabilities of an offline PSD.) Saving your creative work as cloud documents will enable exclusive benefits:

  • Work from anywhere and access your creative work across devices like Photoshop on your desktop, iPad and Adobe Fresco and Adobe Aero
  • Work on one PSD file on Photoshop on your desktop, on Photoshop on your iPad and Fresco on your iPad, with all your edits seamlessly saved to that file from these apps via autosave
  • Easily find creative files directly from within your application’s Home
  • Peace of mind. Your documents are automatically saved and you are using the most up-to-date version

Home is easy to navigate to in Photoshop on the desktop, iPad and Fresco with similar tools and capabilities in all the apps.

Some key details about cloud documents:

  • You can also choose to save your Photoshop desktop PSDs locally on your computer or in a different cloud storage location, exactly the same as in prior versions of Photoshop.
  • You can use Photoshop on your desktop or iPad while offline. For Photoshop on the desktop, working offline is exactly the same as in prior versions of Photoshop.
  • Cloud documents in Photoshop desktop and Photoshop on the iPad and Fresco are auto-saved.
  • All documents in Photoshop on your iPad and Fresco are default cloud documents and default auto-saved to the cloud. You can export them to your device or other storage locations any time.
  • Cloud documents, like libraries and synced files, are part of the Creative Cloud services ?included with your membership and count toward your Creative Cloud storage?allocation.

Photoshop

Learn even more about what’s new in this version of Photoshop here.

On February 19, we will celebrate Photoshop’s 30th birthday. We now have many customers who were born after Photoshop and have never been without it. I’m so incredibly proud to be part of a product that continues to be the tool used by millions of creative people worldwide to bring their imaginations to life. Today that tool gets even better.

First, you will be thrilled with some of the improvements we’ve added using our Sensei technology of artificial intelligence and machine learning- particularly new capabilities in the Object Selection Tool and Content-Aware-Fill.


Many aspects of the user experience and engine have been re-architected for speed including places like the Home screen where you can see and open your PSDs; and the File > New dialog, which now launches almost instantaneously. Opening files on the Mac is also speedier now.

The home screen looks different because we’ve added things like access to cloud documents. We also have a “What’s new” tour so you can very easily see what we’ve added to each release as we are now constantly shipping new capabilities.

Properties Panel

We’ve cut out steps to navigate through multiple panels and dialogs by repackaging top tasks into a central location. These properties are shown contextually for the given content selected. This includes:

  • Document properties like canvas size, color mode, background fill, and toggles for rulers, grids and guides.
  • Pixel layer properties like transform options, alignment options, background removal and select subject shortcuts.
  • Type properties like selecting tracking, leading, aliasing options, OpenType features and more.

We’ve also added new quick action buttons to accelerate common tasks. For example you can now one-click to remove background or select subject while in the pixel layer properties panel or quickly convert text layers into a frame or shape.

Preset Panels: Swatches, Gradients, Patterns, Shapes and Styles

Preset workflows have received a complete overhaul. These improvements make up some of the all-time top requests across all customer types. You get:

  • New beautiful, modern default content like gradients and patterns (we know you’ll miss the old ones).
  • New, dedicated panels for gradients, patterns and shapes.
  • Manage your presets by organizing them into groups. Drag and move to rearrange and re-order.
  • New behaviors, like drag and drop gradients, patterns and swatches onto the canvas.
  • Quickly try different looks by clicking through your presets to see a live preview on canvas.

Don’t like the changes? The familiar legacy presets can still be accessed and loaded via the contextual panel menu item “Legacy presets.”

Object Selection Tool

This tool has been promoted to the top spot under the magic selections tool icon. We use Sensei AI machine learning to enable you to automatically select single, multiple or parts of objects in an image; speeding up complex selections.

Select subject Select Subject gets better edges, is faster on a Mac and we’ve reduced the size of the Sensei AI machine learning model on disk without reducing quality so we can also run it on Photoshop on iPad and achieve identical results on both platforms (this feature coming to iPad soon).

Content-Aware-Fill Enhancements

We’ve added three ways to identify where in your image you want it to look for source pixels as fill content.

  • Auto: intelligently select source pixels by analyzing pixels near the selection
  • Rectangular: Chooses pixels nearby
  • Custom: gives you full control. You identify exactly which pixels to fill from

Smart Object Convert to Layers

Convert a Smart Object back into its component layers to fine-tune your designs—and do it all in one place, without having to switch between document windows. Right-click any existing Smart Object and use the menu item ‘Convert to Layers’ to unpack the layers.

This is a specific response to requests from some of our power users and we worked very closely with them to get it right.

Lens Blur

Now you can take better advantage of the depth maps coming out of your camera. You can set a focal point to choose what to blur and keep in focus (foreground, background, etc). We’ve also made it speedier with GPU improvements.

Transform Warp Enhancements

We’ve added much more flexibility and control to transform warp with the ability to drag with bezier curves. We’ve added preset grids: 3×3, 4×4, 5×5 defaults. You can also create your own custom-sized grids (20×4 for example) and add and move your own new gridlines and anchor points.

There’s also a new keyboard shortcut (option/alt). This supports multiple undos to remove gridlines as you add them. And you can shift/drag to select multiple points for more control over creative warping.

32-Bit HDR Images

We’ve added adjustment layers for curves and brightness / contrast for 32-bit images.

Consistent Transform Behavior

You spoke. We listened. Proportionally transform multiple layers, regardless of the type, without using Shift. However, if you prefer the legacy behavior, simply click the link in the transform option bar to revert back to legacy behavior (all layers free transform by default). With a single click, you can set up Photoshop to your preferred transform behavior.

Smart Object and Layer Comp Tracking

Now save the variation of a Layer Comp within a Smart Object to save time from manually setting each variation.

New Shortcuts

  • Paint/erase with the same brush: Use the (~) key to toggle between painting and erasing with the same brush tip. This is a popular customer request also available on the iPad.
  • Faster layer navigation: Option/single click on a layer and zoom to that layer to help with faster navigation, especially with complex layered-documents.
  • Quickly rotate the brush tip by using the left and right arrow keys when a brush tool is active.

And So Much More

…Document tab improvements, native animated GIF support, better handling of scratch disks out of space…

Does the Canon EOS R firmware update v.1.4.0 make a difference? Absolutely! Your EOS R got a free upgrade.

It's been a month since Canon EOS R Firmware v.1.4.0 was made public and I've been asked about its performance (more than once). Quite simply, this update brings a great improvement to the AF system.

Prior to installing the update, I created a controlled eye-detection AF test. The test was not highly technical – the longest distance that the EOS R would show a stationary subject's eye being detected by a specific lens and focal length was determined and recorded. It was not difficult to determine whether or not the new firmware delivered an advantage. That test revealed that v.1.4.0 shows the eye detection box in the viewfinder from a distance 3x farther away (3x-smaller eyes) than the previous firmware version did. The difference is very obvious.

While I was happy with the R's eye-detection AF performance prior to loading the update, it is especially reassuring to see your subject's eye being indicated in the viewfinder and this update is a good one. That your camera gets this update for free is especially good.
