Busted: Canon EOS Smart 1 Phone

Busted!
The well done April Fools hoax has officially been busted. Here is the Tag Heuer phone used for the mockup. :) I have added a reminder to my calendar for next years April Fools day.

UPDATE
I just realized what day tomorrow was, so please keep that in mind. :) The person who sent it claims it isn’t but that’s part of the fun I guess. I will say that I can’t find the phone anywhere on the web that they would have doctored, if you do find it, please send it on.

Photo Rumors has also received the images and apparently they come from a Greek magazine. We have no confirmation from anyone else that the product is real.

Original Post
I received this little product today . I have no idea if it’s real or just a great PhotoShop hoax. What do you think? Would you buy a Canon branded smartphone if the photography capabilities trumped all other smartphones on the market?

It kind of looks like the Caterpillar branded smart phone.

Canon PowerShot G17 Coming in May? [CR1]

Canon PowerShot G17 Coming in May? [CR1]

We’re told that Canon will announce the PowerShot G17 some time in May. That is an extremely fast refresh from the PowerShot G16, which was announced last August. The PowerShot G16 was a very minor refresh from the G15.

Specifications

  • 24-200mm f/1.4-2.0 lens
  • New 1″ Sensor
  • all magnesium body with comfortable grip
  • DIGIC 6

The lens looks pretty impressive if this turns out to be true.

Canon PowerShot SX 60 IS 100x Zoom Mentioned Again [CR1]

Canon PowerShot SX 60 IS 100x Zoom Mentioned Again [CR1]

We continue to receive little bits of information about the upcoming Canon PowerShot SX60 IS. We should be seeing this highly popular superzoom some time in the spring.

The latest we’ve heard is the camera will have a 100x zoom and will have a focal length range of 20-2000mm. This goes along with what most sources have previously said. I’d get one just for the fun of 2000mm!
