CP+ 2015 - Biggest Finding was not a New Body or Lens, But. . .

CP plus 2015

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (162mm, f/2.8, 1/160 sec, ISO-200)

This is my first time to join this biggest camera show in Japan. Camera & Photo Imaging Show, or simply CP+, was full of new finding in the field of photography. I was simply expecting new bodies and lenses, but the biggest finding was not. Let's see what appealed me in the show.

 

Inside of CP plus

Canon EOS 6D, Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 IIDG HSM (17mm, f/5.6, 1/30 sec, ISO-2000)

Today was the last day of CP+, where thousands of people were enjoying new products and services.

 

Canon Booth

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (70mm, f/2.8, 1/160 sec, ISO-1250)

Of course, the first booth to see was Canon!

 

Canon Quality

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (70mm, f/2.8, 1/160 sec, ISO-1250)

The board says "Canon Offers High Quality with Good Presence".

 

PowerShot N2

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/2.8, 1/160 sec, ISO-2000)

It was PowerShot N2 which made me wanna buy in the first place. It is quite small and can fit into your hand with a 8x optical zoom. Of course it has Wi-Fi to share photos with your mobile devices.

 

PowerShot N2 Bended

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/4, 1/160 sec, ISO-4000)

The most appealing point is that it is best suited for taking photos of yourself. The shutter button is the ring around the lens which you can press easily when you take photos of yourself. The screen can move around, and you can see the screen from any angle. This can be my next second camera after my PowerShot S120.

 

Canon EOS 7D

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/5.6, 1/80 sec, ISO-4000)

EOS 7D Mark II is not that new, but it looks very interesting. The biggest advantage is its continuous shooting speed of 10 photos per second. It must be great if I can use this body when I try sport photography.

 

Canon EOS 5Ds

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/5.6, 1/80 sec, ISO-4000)

And this is it! I decided to come to CP+ because I wanted to try EOS 5Ds and 5Ds R before being on sale. It was a bit heavier but fitted my hand in almost the same way as my 6D.

I can hardly understand how great its picture quality is from the screen. Definitely, I need a large PC screen to examine it. Yet the valid pixels of 50.6 millions is just amazing. I wonder weather my next main camera should be EOS 5D Mark III or EOS 5Ds R (or simply EOS 5Ds?). It's a great advance that I can choose the next body from multiple choices.

 

Canon EOS 5Ds R

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/5.6, 1/80 sec, ISO-4000)

This is 5Ds R. I can hardly understand the difference only by using it here, though...

 

Tamron SP 15-30mm F2.8 Di VC USD

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/5.6, 1/80 sec, ISO-1250)

After enjoying the booth of Canon, I rushed to see Tamron lenses because I waited in line for half an hour to try EOS 5Ds and 5Ds R... *laugh*

In the booth of Tamron, I found this Tamron SP 15-30mm F2.8 Di VC UCD in the photo above. As soon as I saw this lens, I imagined how beautiful starscapes would be through such a bright lens of F2.8. The ultra wide angle of 15-30mm zoom is quite appealing not only for starscapes but also for blue sky and cityscapes at night.

 

Sigma 24mm F1.4 DG HSM

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/5, 1/80 sec, ISO-2500)

After the great wide-angle zoom lens from Tamron, I encountered another great wide-angle lens at the booth of Sigma. Sigma 24mm F1.4 DG HSM has had an unbelievable impact on my plan. Though this lens has a fixed focal length, it is definitely one of the best for starscapes. Plus, F1.4 with this ultra wide angle will surely offer photographers another dimension of light. Ah... the choices are quite rich. This encounter has reminded me how great the Art Line is.

 

Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG HSM Sports

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/5, 1/80 sec, ISO-2500)

Other than these wide angle lenses, Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG HSM Sports looks interesting. It is hard to carry but will give us the best images of small things such as birds.

 

DJI

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (95mm, f/5, 1/80 sec, ISO-1600)

I've listed interesting bodies and lenses, but the biggest finding was not a body or lens. The biggest finding has come from DJI, a developer of unmanned airplane systems.

 

Phantom 2 Vision plus

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/5, 1/80 sec, ISO-800)

To my surprise, you can take photos from the sky with this machine!!! You can only use the pre-attached camera for the cheapest machine, though.

 

Phantom 2plus Zenmuse H4-3D

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (90mm, f/5.6, 1/80 sec, ISO-800)

It was quite expensive to buy the machine which can hold your DSLR, but the machine for GoPro, named Phantom 2, is available by just 88,000 yen. Only less than 100 thousand yen can give you photography from the sky. I really wonder which to buy for my videography now, GoPro or Sony Handycam. What an exciting product!

 

Sunset from CP plus

Canon EOS 6D, Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (200mm, f/8, 1/800 sec, ISO-100)

It was so fun that I was staying here until the end. I left the show at the sunset time while enjoying imagining the future of my gear.
