What Else is Coming for Photokina? [CR2]

What Else is Coming for Photokina? [CR2]

We’re told a lot of the imaging line will see new products.

We’ve confirmed that Canon will announce new projectors at various price points for Photokina. You can also expect new printers in the Pixma line, at least one of the printers will be “Pro”. No word on the much desired 17″ Pixma Pro printer. We’ve heard it was in development, but we’re not sure when it’s coming to market.

We can also expect a couple of PowerShot announcements. A new durable camera is likely. We’re still waiting on the SX60 to make an appearance, and this seems like a good time do it.

Lots more to come…

New PowerShot & EOS Cameras to Offer DOF Control?

New PowerShot & EOS Cameras to Offer DOF Control?

We’re told that Canon is working to implement depth of field control in upcoming PowerShot and Rebel DSLRs. The idea sounds like what Lytro is doing, or more recently what Google introduced for the Android camera.

There’s no mention of which camera(s) this would be introduced in, but it seems like a logical next step feature.

Hong Kong Teaser Announcement

What was the teaser from the other day on the Canon Hong Kong Facebook page for? They announced the PowerShot G1 X II, which was already announced every place else a long while ago. Yet again, a regional announcement is of little interest.
