Announcements in August [CR1]

Announcements in August [CR1]

What’s coming in August?
Some information came today explaining what will be coming from Canon in the month of August. Currently it sounds like 3 different announcement dates for various Canon imaging products.

First up?

Printers
We’re told that we should see new ImagePROGRAF printers sometime very soon, possibly next week.

PowerShot
New PowerShot cameras at the end of August is almost a given. I am told we’ll get a true replacement to the G12. The G1X was never really meant to replace the lower end cousin. I am also told we’ll see a small camera with an f/1.9 lens. There was no mention of specifications for either camera.

I also expect a new superzoom or two for the PowerShot lineup.

EOS M
I find this a bit unlikely, but it was also mentioned we’ll see a second EOS-M camera announced in the fall, probably not before Photokina though. It would be the “pro” model.  I’m confident one is coming, I’m just not sure it’s coming that soon. 

A new wide angle zoom lens
A new wide angle zoom for EF should be announced before Photokina in September. Could it be the long awaited EF 14-24?

EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x
There are tons of these lenses in London currently, I expect an announcement this fall and pretty fast availability.
