Next Monday, Earth's solitary moon will be the closest it has been to the planet in a long, long time. The biggest and brightest supermoon of the century will be lighting up the sky on Monday night, and if you're planning to get outside and snap some photographs of it you won't be the only one. Here are some things to keep in mind.

Hiya Gizmodo! My 15 year old son has really started getting into photography — it has quickly become one of his favourite subjects at school. I'd love to get him a decent camera (under $1000) that can grow with him and his skills, for a few years at least. What's the best direction to go in? Cheers, Mum

Canon has completely failed at mirrorless cameras. Meanwhile, competitors like Olympus and Sony have both embraced and excelled at the format, which gives you DSLR quality images in a significantly smaller, and mirror-free body.

Canon has languished. Last year it even dragged it's feet on giving American audiences a taste at its newest mirrorless attempts. The Canon EOS M3 arrived in the US months after it was announced and available overseas. The new Canon EOS M5 will not wait so long.

Hi Gizmodo, I was wondering if you could help me. I have a question. I have been the proud owner of a very nice Canon 7D camera for the last few years, and have some nice lenses to boot — a 24-70mm Canon L lens, a 30mm Sigma prime, and a 50mm f/1.8 Canon prime.

But I'd like to upgrade. I'm eyeing off the Sony Alpha mirrorless cameras, but I don't have the money to just go out and buy something off the shelf. So I was wondering: what if I trade my camera in? Or should I sell it as second-hand on a forum somewhere? Yours sincerely, Totally Not Alex Walker

Here's my camera wishlist: I want it to be easy to use, not overly complicated, take great images that don't need a lot of post-processing in a range of environments, be portable (as in small enough to pop in my bag comfortably, rather than needing a bag of its own) and not — possibly most importantly — die immediately if I accidentally drop it.

The Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II promises to deliver on this wishlist of mine — not only is it sturdy (read on to find out just how sturdy) and compact, it boasts Canon's new DIGIC 7 processor, coupled with a 1-inch 20.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and 4.2x optical zoom lens — which makes for a photographic package that all but eliminates the need for anything but the most basic editing.

Video: When you're trying to convince photographers that an $15,000 camera lens is a worthy investment, sometimes you need more than a list of specs. So Canon created a short stop-motion video of its EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM lens disassembling itself and revealing all of its wonderfully complicated internal components.

Canon has just introduced the PowerShot SX620 HS — a compact superzoom camera designed to "get you closer to the action", thanks to a new 25x optical (which can extend a further 50x).

Standout features include a 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4+ processor, intuitive handling and a unique range of creative effects. Basically, it's a tiny camera with a big zoom you can take anywhere.

For those looking to take the next step up from iPhone photography, Canon has today announced its EOS 1300D. The new DSLR is targeted at beginner users, boasting both semi-automatic and full manual control modes to help new photographers learn and grow. Along with the new camera, Canon has also announced the SELPHY CP1200, a compact printer for creative photo prints.

Canon has announced its new camera lineup last week, boasting powerful new processors, sleek lines and, as might be expected, increased image quality. The line includes two new PowerShot cameras — one in its SX travel series, and another in the G series — along with the EOS 80D DSLR with a series of matching accessories. Here are the details.
