At EOS magazine we believe that understanding how your EOS camera works will make you better prepared to capture those sought-after images. In every issue of the magazine we look at the technology and functionality of the EOS system, whilst explaining the fundamental principles of photography. This is how we learn – we examine an element of EOS cameras, investigate how it works and experiment with the settings to give us the best results. By doing this, and sharing the results with you, the magazine will give you the information you need to be one step closer to taking better pictures. But that’s not all we do. We also gather together information from around the world, reporting on ground-breaking uses of Canon DSLRs, featuring interesting projects shot with EOS cameras and showcasing some of the most inspiring photos taken with EOS equipment. Every new Canon product launch for the EOS range is covered in the magazine, with an in-depth look at the features, technologies and advances in imaging. You may not have heard about EOS magazine before you came across the website. And it’s not on the shelves of your local bookstore or newsagent. So how do you know whether EOS magazine is right for you? This magazine sampler has been put together from several recent issues of EOS magazine. It will give you a taste of the usual content and articles of the magazine. You will also see that the technique articles, which start on page 18, are written specifically for the EOS system.
