We’re told that Canon will introduce a brand new DSLR model some time in 2015 that will be somewhat modular. All we were told is that the viewfinder will be interchangeable, as well as “other parts of the camera”. We’re trying to find out what else would be removable on a DSLR.
This camera will be video focused, but a competent stills shooter as well. It sounds like it could be a part of the Cinema EOS line and I would suspect it would appear at NAB in April, 2015.

A new patent for an EF 35mm f/1.4L II has appeared. We haven’t seen a new patent for this optical formula in quite some time. I recently received a claim that we’ll see such a lens in Q1 of 2015, but I haven’t been able to confirm that information.
Patent Publication No. 2014-202952
- Published 2014.10.27
- Filing date 2013.4.5
- Focal length f = 34.20mm
- Fno. 1.45
- Half angle ω = 32.32 °
- Image height Y = 21.64mm
- Lens length 129.16mm
- BF 39.35mm
A few more people have confirmed that select Canon pros around the globe are testing the new EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II. Also being confirmed is that the lens resembles the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS in its design; with the zoom ring being at the front element side of the lens, and the focus ring near the camera mount. We were also told that the new lens is “quite a bit smaller than the current iteration”, although this could be subjective depending on the photographer. If it is actually smaller, then I expect the front of the lens will be telescopic like the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS.
Availability will be at the end of the November according to one source. There has been no mention of pricing or filter size for the new lens.

CameraLabs has completed their review of the brand new superzoom from Canon, the PowerShot SX60 HS. The review is quite favourable, with only a few minor quibbles.
“The PowerShot SX60 HS is the latest in a long line of very popular and successful DSLR-styled super-zooms from Canon – and that success isn’t going to stop anytime soon. After a two year wait, Canon has surpassed expectations (unless you were taken in by the nonsense 100x rumours) with a 65x zoom range that beats all comers, for now at least.”

DXOMark has completed their review of the Canon PowerShot G7 X. They have come away pretty impressed with the camera and it’s very good sensor score, which bested the Sony RX100 III in their tests.
“Although it was Nikon who was first to adopt and popularize the 1-inch sensor format, it was Sony who dominated this format with the RX100 series. Now with Panasonic and Canon adopting the sensor the field is opening up. The G7 X has high-speed lens with widest range that sets it apart from the RX100 series but if the 24-70mm lens on the RX100 III is enough the Sony is the better specified of the two but then that’s reflected in the steeper price.”
