      Canon introduced two new cameras: the SLR EOS 90D and the mirrorless EOS M6 Mark II. They feature fast shooting speed and high resolution. Each of them has its own characteristics and is able to give the best result in different scenarios. So, EOS 90D suitable for sports or wildlife, and M6 EOS Mark II for everyday use.

      Canon EOS 90D
      Both models are equipped with the latest generation Canon DIGIC 8 processor, which provides high processing speed, fast response and the latest photo and video shooting functions. The electronic system with a minimum shutter speed of 1/16 000 seconds guarantees high quality when shooting fast-moving objects. With this shutter speed, you can shoot with a wider aperture, even in natural light, to reduce the depth of field.
      The EOS 90D supports 10 fps with tracking autofocus and 11 fps in Live View, which is suitable for shooting sports or wildlife. The optical viewfinder reduces the shutter delay and provides the responsiveness needed, for example, when shooting birds in flight. Intelligent display functions allow full control of frame composition and shooting settings. Even if the subject moves not only fast but also unpredictably, the photographer will be able to make more good shots thanks to long series —- up to 58 consecutive JPEG images in resolution L. In addition, the EOS 90D is capable of up to 1300 frames per battery charge.

      Canon EOS M6 MARK II
      The mirrorless model EOS M6 Mark II supports continuous shooting at 14 fps and burst shooting in RAW format at speeds up to 30 fps. In both modes, tracking AF is available. The camera also uses UHS-II cards that support continuous shooting of up to 80 JPEG frames in L resolution. The focus bracketing function in both models makes it easy to increase the depth of field by superimposing multiple frames in DPP.
      The cameras allow you to create detailed images without blurring and artifacts thanks to the new APS-C image sensor at 32.5 megapixels. This resolution is comparable to the characteristics of full-frame cameras, but the new products also have additional advantages of the APS-C format. Thanks to the DIGIC 8 processor, both models received the latest features of the EOS family. The new chipset allows the use of lens correction tools, including digital lens optimization and dispersion correction. Support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth makes it possible to publish pictures on social networks right from the scene.
      Canon also equipped both models with fast and accurate tracking autofocus on the eyes. In the case of the EOS 90D, this system works in conjunction with an RGB + IR metering sensor with a resolution of 220,000 pixels and a flicker detection function. Due to the high maximum ISO sensitivity (range from 100 to 25,600), the new sensor allows you to increase the resolution when shooting in low light conditions without sacrificing quality. The EOS M6 Mark II is capable of focusing when illuminated –5EV (when using a lens with a maximum aperture of f/1.4 or wider).

      Canon EOS 90D
      The EOS 90D and EOS M6 Mark II are also suitable for video recording. 4K resolution and shooting in Full HD with a frame rate of up to 120 frames/s allow you to shoot slow-motion video and crop it. The EOS 90D also offers 4K resolution in cropped mode. When approaching an object, high image quality is maintained.
      The Canon Dual PixelCMOS AF autofocus system, available in Full HD and 4K modes over most of the frame area (88x100%), provides smooth and accurate focus tracking. This technology guarantees a sharp image of the subject on blurred background, and the eye-tracking function helps keep the focus on the face.
      A special connector allows video bloggers and content creators to use an external microphone to record sound without distortion. The EOS 90D also has a headphone output so you can better control the sound quality during video recording. The EOS M6 Mark II portable camera is equipped with an inclined screen that allows you to compose the frame in different shooting modes.

      EOS M6 Mark II
      Like other new EOS DSLR cameras, the EOS 90D has a classic body shape, but with less weight and a large grip area for improved control and balance. Programmable EOS buttons and two multi-function disks - including the new multi-controller on the back of the camera, as in professional models - will help control the camera, more accurately select focus points and find the necessary settings. The EOS 90D has a number of customizable features that let you set up a single unique style for photos or videos.
      The compact size of the EOS M6 Mark II allows you to shoot without any preparation. An assignable dial, the main dial, a customizable auto/manual focus switch, and an auto-focus enable function are all intuitively located for easy camera control in dynamic situations. The removable viewfinder is raised above the camera body and is located in the center, which provides sufficient space and convenience for complete immersion in the creative process, and the screen with an adjustable angle of inclination allows you to shoot in different positions.

    • OPPO Reno 3 review: Quad camera and lots of memory

      Last year's OPPO Reno 2 smartphone was remembered for its almost flagship characteristics. In the new generation, the emphasis has shifted - the role of the top-end device has been assigned to the Reno 3 Pro, and the standard “three” has become a mid-budget phone. However, Reno 3 received a powerful quad camera, high-quality screen, and a large amount of memory. We find out how good the new product is.

      Four rear modules and a 44-megapixel front-facing camera
      The main camera of Reno 3 received four modules, as in the top-end device of the series - Reno 3 Pro. However, there are some functions missing, such as interpolation up to 108 MP. All the blocks are arranged in a line on an islet that protrudes noticeably upwards if you wear the gadget without a cover.
      The main module has a 1/2-inch sensor with a resolution of 48 MP and a lens with an aperture of f/1.8. As usual, in standard mode, it produces 12-megapixel images, and if desired, you can take photos in full resolution - 48 MP. Telephoto is based on a 13-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.4 aperture. The ultra-wide Angle is equipped with an 8-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.2 aperture. Finally, the 2 MP sensor is designed to assess the depth of the scene.

      Telephoto, in addition to 2x optical zoom, provides a 5x hybrid zoom. The photo app allows you to quickly switch between four shooting modes: ultra-wide angle, 1x, 2x, and 5x.
      All modules can function together with HDR. This option works perfectly in Auto mode, improving both the light and dark tones of contrasting scenes. Artificial intelligence confidently recognizes the scenes being shot and selects settings.
      However, in non-standard lighting conditions, if you choose wide-angle optics, the color rendering will not always be accurate. This does not happen with the main module and the telephoto lens.

      The main module paired with the auxiliary module gives clear portraits and realistic blurs the background
      Reno 3 shoots well in mixed and artificial lighting, as well as in the absence of light in the dark. In the most problematic cases, the Night program helps out. It combines several shots and works out all the tones of contrasting scenes. For shooting with manual settings, an Expert preset is provided.
      Multi-megapixel selfies
      The front camera is built into the display and is located in the middle of its upper edge, in the "drop". The camera is equipped with a 44-megapixel sensor and a wide-angle f/2.4 aperture lens. The default settings are set to a 40-megapixel resolution of images. And the full one is selected by pressing a separate on-screen button. The image quality in both cases is approximately the same. Sharpness appears only from a distance of about 30 cm, that is, for example, it is impossible to obtain a macro photograph of your eye. It seems that the calculation was made for shooting with outstretched hands or a selfie stick. For self-portraits, there are traditionally many beauty options: smoothing the skin, correcting the shape of the face and nose, eye size, and so on.

      Selfies in 44MP mode
      The smartphone records 4K videos at 30 fps. The supported format is Full HD with 30 and 60 fps, as well as slow-motion clips in HD and Full HD. During movie shooting, you can freely switch the zoom.
      In 4K mode at 30 frames per second, the gadget produces a picture with the correct color reproduction and high definition. But when working with hands, stabilization is noticeably lacking.
      Shooting in Full HD at 60 fps uses Ultra Steady Video 2.0 stabilization, which makes the picture smoother.
      Work and entertainment without lags
      Reno 3 is built on an eight-core MediaTek Helio P90 chipset. The new product in AnTuTu gives out figures comparable to the results of Kirin 970 and Snapdragon 712, and slightly ahead of Snapdragon 710. And in the Geekbench 5 rating - is on par with Snapdragon 845. This speed is sufficient to avoid slowdowns in any applications.
      8 GB of RAM allows you to run multiple programs simultaneously. The built-in fingerprint sensor acts quickly and accurately. There are no performance problems in games. In the popular WoT: Blitz with default graphics settings, the frame rate is confidently kept at 60 fps.

      The device has only one main speaker, which produces clear sound without distortion up to about 90% of the volume. Plus, there is support for Dolby Atmos. In this software add-on, you can add surround sound and a bit of bass - a great option for multimedia applications.
      Unfortunately, you will not be able to create a full stereo pair, because the speaker is quieter than the main one. But in Reno3 Pro two speakers shake as if you are holding a good Bluetooth speaker in your hands. Complete in-ear headphones deliver high-quality sound. Thanks to the audio jack, you can connect your favorite accessory.

      The built-in storage is not too large: 128 GB. But it is easy to increase it by using a microSD memory card. It is placed in a triple slot next to two nano-SIM cards. We had a 512 GB test card at hand - it worked without problems.
      High autonomy
      The gadget is powered by a 4025 mAh battery and supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology. A 20 W adapter and a complete cable during the test provided recharging at high speed. For example, from 33 to 78%, the battery was charged in 13 minutes, and up to 100% in 27.
      An hour-long shootout in WoT: Blitz (display brightness - 50%) consumes 11 percent of the battery. That is, without going to the outlet, it is about 9 hours of offline gaming. In Flight-mode, with the same brightness, about 4.4% of the battery charge is spent per hour playing the video in Full HD. Therefore, you should expect 22 hours of offline video viewing. Excellent results!

      If long-term autonomy is not so important, you can disable power consumption optimization in the settings and select "High performance". In this case, the device will work a little faster, and the battery consumption will be stronger.
      Great screen
      Reno 3 is equipped with an AMOLED panel with a diagonal of 6.4 inches, a resolution of FHD+ (2400x1080 pixels), and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The display occupies 90.8% of the front panel area, has a teardrop-shaped cutout for the front and thin frames. The image is clear, with rich but natural colors. The viewing angles are large, and the brightness reserve is sufficient for using the phone on the street in any weather. With minimal screen light, it is comfortable to read in a dark room. And at night, you can switch to "Dark mode" - in fact, this is an inverse version of the design: with a black display and a white font. Many people will find it even more convenient, and it also saves battery life.
      Branded shell of the seventh version
      Reno 3 is running a proprietary ColorOS 7 shell based on Android 10. When comparing with the previous version, you can see that the font has not changed, but many icons have been redrawn. However, their shape and size can be easily changed at your own discretion. The screen can be converted to a split format - just make a three-finger swipe up.

      The OPPO Reno 3 is an interesting device with balanced characteristics. From the first minutes, the beautiful design, slim body, and high-quality 6.4-inch screen make you happy. Later on - high performance, fast recharging, and good battery life. The advantages include the photo-filling, including a 44-megapixel front camera. In addition, the built-in drive can be expanded with a memory card, but not to the detriment of the second SIM card - a trifle, but nice.
