Title: What to Expect From Canon For CP+ Next Week
Post by: Canon Rumors on February 07, 2014, 06:50:20 AM

Below is what we’re likely to see Canon announce next week for CP+ in Tokyo, Japan. Canon generally treats this show as a consumer show, so we won’t see anything on the prosumer DSLR side.



These announcements will come on Wednesday, February 12, 2014.

Well I am really looking forward to a new G1x! I really hope they have improved the current models failing, such as the AF and macro, otherwise I would have brought one.

With the risk of sounding negative... BORING! (Ok, the G1X sounds a bit interesting) ;D ;D


I really really look forward to the day Canon announces their FF mirrorless camera. They have the technology to blow everybody away with their AF technology, which is an area mirrorless lag behind the dslr´s.

Looking forward to CP+, and all other goodies that might erupt!

I too would love to see a kickass FF mirrorless camera from Canon. But they won't be blowing anything away with their current sensor tech.

Just look at the A7R from Sony. It trumps everything Canon has in terms of pure IQ.

When the day comes when Canon manages to bring out a brand new sensor (higher resolution, higher DR and no shadow-banding), I doubt they'll put it inside a mirrorless body. At least not until it's been sold in a $7000 1D-body for 2 - 3 years.

Canon is Canon.

True!
I know Canon can pull it off if they like, they are a huge company with tons and tons of brain capasity employed.
However, we have to wait quite a long time I guess. Luckily dreaming is free of charge :)

I have a feeling it's going to be a long wait for Photokina - but that's good for my bank account at least ;D

There is "state of the art" and there is "tried and true". The Canon professional cameras tend towards "tried and true", so very often advances show up first in lower end cameras, only arriving at the pro level once the bugs are out....

"•We’ll also see a few other PowerShot cameras announced."

Hoping for a Powershot D20 replacement for underwater shooting, as it's a bit outclassed by Panasonic and Olympus now and I'd prefer to stick with Canon across all cameras that I have.

Why? - actually a quite serious question if others make more suitable offerings in a particular category that's important to you.

I've used a D20 that a friend has and I like it, only I won't need one for 6 months, so if Canon can come up with something then great, otherwise, it'll be Tough TG-2 for the f2-4.9 lens

New DSLR, most likely a Rebel below the EOS SL1.

Gee, how low can you go?

<li>Canon G1 X Replacement. This camera will be slimmer, it will lose the optical viewfinder and the lens is most likely 24-120 f/2-3.9. As I’ve said before, it will be a fair bit of money. I’d say around $700.</li>
<li>Canon PowerShot S200. I’m not sure if this is a replacement to the S120, or a new camera.</li>

I wonder if Canon is repositioning their compact camera's like they did with the DSLR's, and the S200 will be a replacement for both the S120 and G16...

Well a 1100D/T3 is already below the SL1, so I guess it is a replacement for that.
Or a SL0.5 perhaps

Exactly…I think this refers to a physically smaller version of the T3/1100D, quite possibly just the same sensor and AF system in the SL1 chassis.

24-120 F2-3.9?
Are you sure?

This sounds like crap, i agree. That lens...sounds as boring as they come. They might as well pull the lens from the g16

sensor- was already good, but likely only the iso will get better. not mad at that.

touchscreen? this would rock- canons touchscreen is just awesome, love it on the M.

I dont use the optical on my g12 much, but its much better than not having it at all.

then again, anything is better than the last t5i "update"

thanks, but no thanks. Kind of fun to watch Canon going down the drain with all that crap.

If the G1X replacement specs are true, I'll crack open a bottle of Champagne.

That would mean that they finally get that this class of camera must have a lens no slower than f/4 at the long end in order to be competitive.  Fuji & Sony get this, and have highly desirable class-leading products in this segment.  Hopefully we're looking at something around f/2.8 in the "standard" focal range, which would be just fine for indoor stuff with an image stabilizer & a good sensor.


Come to think of it, it's Friday; maybe I'll crack open a bottle of Champagne anyway :-).

I could never part with my trusted G11, so as long as it lives no replacement in that class for me. :'(

I don't blame you. I wish I hadn't sat on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 with my fat arse busting it...  Loved that camera and would STILL be happy with it. 5 years later...

Sigma threw us all a curve ball with their new bodies. Not sure what to think of those 110 looking crazy handles on the dp 1-3's. But a new Foveon, very interesting.

Reality is... sony is sony too.
Sony is only just getting into the DSLR market... give them time.
A good example is their high-end TVs that range from $3000 to $5000.
You can get LG and Samsung for a fraction of that price. But then again, they are getting pricey too.
