Canon’s EOS 70D is one of the most exciting cameras to debut in a long, long time. Boasting the best aspects of Canon’s DSLR range rolled into one package, the 70D is sure to impress. But! The 70D has something else up its sleeve that may make it truly revolutionary.
The 70D borrows heavily from its predecessors: the 7D’s autofocus sensor, the Wi-Fi capabilities from the 6D, as well as the 5D Mk. III‘s Digic 5+ image processor. This blend of features alone makes it, it theory, a stunning camera. What makes this camera really exciting is Canon’s 20.2 MP APS-C Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor. In other words, every pixel that comprises the sensor is split into two distinct photodiodes. This allows live phase-detection autofocus which in turn enables beautiful movies and accurate live viewing.
We expect the 70D to arrive in store by August 29th, when we hope to publish a more in-depth review. Get in touch with us today to find out more!
Although we might not be as active as we are in summer, winter is a great time to produce some great images and capture some precious memories. We’ve been experiencing some winter weather recently that we’re not usually accustomed to – sunny days, lukewarm afternoons and clear nights. These conditions make for some stunning outdoor settings that you should make the most of!
To capture amazing outdoor shots, we recommend a DSLR, such as the Canon EOS 5D Mk. III. One of the many great value DSLRs we have in stock, the Mk. III is adaptable to a wide range of conditions, allowing you to capture that magnificent sunset, that first skiing lesson or even that serene forest.
For the more budget and travel-conscious, we also stock a range of compact digital cameras that fit easily into your life – and your pocket! These cameras produce surprisingly high quality images whilst being affordable and compact. If you’re into top quality images at a great cost, then we recommend a compact digital such as the Nikon Coolpix P330.
Winter doesn’t necessarily mean hibernation – we encourage you to get out there on weekend and enjoy everything that the winter landscape has to offer. There’s never been a better time to invest in a brand new camera at Kirks. We can help you pick the camera that’s right for you, thanks to our friendly and knowledgeable staff. Don’t forget to bring your camera on your next trip, and rug up!
Canon lenses are the perfect complement to your Canon DSLR. The DSLR is comprised of two elements, the camera back and the lens. Both have a significant impact on the range and quality of images you can take. While accessories such as tripods, camera flashes, cases and memory cards are all important in their own right, it’s the lens and back that ultimately determine the quality of your photos. Canon manufactures a range of quality lenses that are optimised for their range of DLSRs.
The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is just over a year old, and represents the all-rounder in Canon’s EF mount lens range. Any DSLR with the EF mount is capable of using the 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM. Handling the lens, its robustness and sturdiness is immediately apparent. The general build quality of Canon equipment is excellent, and stands up to the rigours of professional photography. Suitable for a variety of conditions, this lens is a great general purpose lens for the professional and hobbyist alike.
Canon’s EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is a telephoto lens optimised for super sharp image quality in all conditions. Featuring rugged construction, the lens will perform well anywhere. The 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM also features 4 stops of image stabilisation, giving it an advantage over its non-stabilised contemporaries. Sharp, clear images are a breeze for this machine.

Canon’s venerable 5D series has been going strong for around eight years now, starting with the original 5D back in 2005. The first 5D was unlike any DSLR that preceded it, compact yet with a full-frame 12.8 megapixel sensor that produced images of incredible resolution. Eight years on, and the resolution has been bumped up to an impressive 22.3 megapixels. Coupled with an ISO range of 100 to 25600 (allowing for some amazingly detailed shot in low light conditions), a 61-point AF system and a 6 fps shooting rate, the 5D Mark III is a beast to behold. But, how does it actually fare as a usable camera?
The 5D Mark III, as with its predecessors, is quite compact for a DSLR of its specifications. It’s generally though to feel solid, consistent with the sturdy built quality of Canon’s upper-tier range of cameras. The Mark III’s LCD panel, slightly larger than that of its predecessor, boasts an even higher resolution, making on-screen option-flicking simple and lining up shots easy.
Movie mode on the Mark III is a standout feature. Shooting 1080p video is a breeze – for the average ‘prosumer’, it effectively eliminates the need for a standalone HD digital video camera. There’s also a built-in headphone jack for monitoring audio as well as different movie compression options to give you added flexibility with your storage.
The 61-point AF system is in a class of its own, making for highly-details shots that really make the most of the Mark III’s high-res sensor. Combines with the right lens, Canon’s 5D Mark III is an outstanding choice for those looking for a top-class, affordable camera.

Canon’s venerable EOS range has been going strong for 25 years now. Making the switch to self-contained digital in 2000 with the EOS D30, Canon’s steadfast line of DSLRs has been one of the most desirable cameras for professionals and enthusiasts world wide. Canon has upped themselves once again with the EOS 5D Mk III, the latest revision of their popular 5D design. The first 5D arrived in 2005, marking the arrival of the affordable DSLR. The Mk II of 2008 introduced Full HD video recording to the world of DLSRs, a now standard feature. In 2012, the Mk III was released to great fanfare. What surprises await us with this model?
First up, the specs. The Mk III has a 22.3 megapixel resolution, thanks to its 36x24mm CMOS sensor. This is an improvement over the Mk II’s 21.1 megapixel sensor. The Mk III is also capable of using two different types of storage, CompactFlash and SD. It manages 6 frames per second over the Mk II’s 3.9 and has a 61 Point AF system, a significant upgrade from the Mk II’s 9 Point AF. Like its predecessor, it’s also capable of shooting full HD video. Its incredible ISO range (100-25600) allows exceptional performance in all lighting conditions. Finally, it has Canon’s advanced DIGIC 5+ processor, offering top of the line performance
How does it feel? Using a body type very similar to the 7D, the Mk III has a great feel in the hand, exuding the sturdiness that Canon is well known for. Everyday photography as well as more involved shoots were well cater for by the Mk III. It essentially does everything that the Mk II does, only better. The Canon EOS 5D Mk III – worth every cent!
For anyone looking to take the next step in the world of DSLR photography, the Canon EOS 60D is the answer. Brand new technology provides users with an exciting new LCD Screen perfect for photography situations that need a low or overhead shooting angle, be that for taking still images or capturing videos in HD, as well as providing beautiful, cutting edge images.
