Canon Rebel T4i Stock Notice

Canon Rebel T4i Stock Notice

When can you get one?
The new Rebel T4i/650D will be available in stores fairly soon. Below is a list that is to the best of my knowledge as to when you can expect shipments to start for the new flagship Rebel.

Rebel T4i Body Only & Rebel T4i w/18-55 IS II Kit

Rebel T4i w/18-135 IS STM Kit

Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM

By the looks of things, and what people have told me. Initial stock for all the above items should be pretty good initially and be great in July and August. There appears to be a wait for the T4i w/18-135 IS STM kit initially, although the lens by itself is showing availability in late June, we’ll see what transpires with that.

Just a Rebel Reminder for This Friday

Just a Rebel Reminder for This Friday

Friday’s New Stuff
With the Rebel arriving on Friday, I plan to stay awake until the usual midnight (GMT -5) press release. Staying up until midnight is quite a chore for me these days, so please be a midnight end to the NDAs. We should be getting at least 3 announcements from Canon.

Just to refresh your memory, we’ll get the new top end Rebel, as well as a new 18-135 IS and a 40 f/2.8 Pancake. I do believe the pancake lens is going to be quite inexpensive and may just be a fun lens to have in your kit.

PowerShot & Video?
I have received no word on any new PowerShot cameras coming in the immediate future. I also rarely get any information about new Vixia video cameras coming. So, I wouldn’t expect a 4K Vixia.

More in June?
Apparently yes, there should be another June announcement for the rumoured ”mirrorless” camera.

To keep the PR machine rolling, I have been told there could be 2-3 more announcements in the mid August to early September timeframe. This would coincide with Photokina the third week in September. I would expect a lot of PowerShot refreshes as well as at least 2 new DSLRs.

New Rebel
The next Rebel will be announced soon. Perhaps on or around March 2, 2012.

No real specs are available, except that it will come with a new EF-S 18-135 lens with a silent autofocus motor.

More information should arrive soon.

There are apparently invites to press events on March 2, 2012. That could be for the coming 5D, or another product.

5D3/X and Other Random News

5D Mark III / 5D X
There has been nothing new to report on the recent leaked DSLR from Canon. Keep your thoughts and opinions coming though.

Rebel T4i & 70D [CR1]
I have received little bits of info in regards to the replacement to the T3i and 60D, both will be “addressed” by the time Photokina rolls around (probably a lot sooner). Nothing in regards to specs or direction at this time. There’s a general opinion Canon will announce their mirrorless camera for Photokina in September.

Meanwhile [NL] is told that a new Rebel will be announced at CP+

Announcement date?
My [CR3] level source in regards to announcement dates has yet to see one for CP+. Although it has been confirmed that Nikon will announce that day. It may just be a Coolpix day for them though.

5D Mark II at the Oscars
A movie shot with the 5D Mark II has been nominated for an Oscar. So fear not, even if the new 5D Mark III makes it way to us soon, your 5D Mark II is still very capable.
