EOS Bodies / Modular DSLR Coming from Canon? [CR2]
« on: October 29, 2014, 11:33:37 AM »

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.

EOS Bodies / Patent: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II
« on: October 29, 2014, 11:03:44 AM »

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

Example 1

  • 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

Lenses / More EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II Talk [CR2]
« on: October 28, 2014, 12:03:09 PM »

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.

Lenses / Review: Canon PowerShot SX60 HS
« on: October 27, 2014, 06:57:50 AM »

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.”

Lenses / Review: PowerShot G7 X via DXOMark
« on: October 26, 2014, 04:06:16 PM »

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.”

Lenses / EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS Replacement Coming in November [CR2]
« on: October 24, 2014, 02:54:33 PM »

We’re told that demo versions of the upcoming replacement for the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS have hit select photographers hands for field use.

The new design resembles the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS with a thin focus ring at the base, and a wider zoom ring near the front element. The aperture range for the lens will remain at f/4.5-5.6. Another mentioned feature is in the lens hood for the lens. It sounds like there will be a retractable opening near where a filter would be, so you could turn your circular polarize easily if you needed to.

As with anything regarding this oft rumoured lens, we take things with a grain of salt. That being said, things are lining up with a lot of consistent information.

Hoping to hear more soon.



On Display for the First Time in the U.S. will be the New Cinema EOS C100 Mark II Digital Video Camera, EOS 7D Mark II and PowerShot G7 X Digital Cameras along with the Latest in Lenses and Professional Printing Solutions

NEW YORK, October 23, 2014 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will demonstrate its latest digital camera optics and printer lineup, including the recently announced EOS C100 Mark II Digital Video Camera, at PhotoPlus Expo 2014 in the Jacob K.

The Company will also be showing its gallery of PIXMA PRO and imagePROGRAF large format professional inkjet prints and will feature stunning images from Canon’s Explorers of Light, as well as live printing demonstrations throughout the show.

For the first time at PhotoPlus Expo, the Canon booth will feature images from the Austin, TX, and Seattle, WA, portions of the 2014 PIXMA PRO City Senses Tour.

In addition, a REALiS WUX400ST will be displaying a digital signage application running Canon commercials on a loop, an ideal solution for both advertising and education fields.

EOS Bodies / 4K Products Coming From Canon [CR2]
« on: October 23, 2014, 05:03:37 PM »

We’re told to expect “a bunch” of 4K products from Canon, starting in early 2015. There will be products in the EOS line, Cinema EOS line and possibly the VIXIA line.

Both the EOS C300 and EOS C500 will see updates in 2015, with the EOS C300 replacement gaining at least 4K. We have no idea if Canon will follow ARRI into 6K territory or not, but judging by Canon’s strategy thus far, I don’t see that happening. Though a good source keeps telling us Canon has its sight set on being the “A camera”, and that there could be a different form factor Cinema EOS product shown at NAB.

As for 4K DSLR’s, we weren’t told which camera(s) would get the capability. I asked if the 7D Mark II could possibly get 4K via firmware, to which there was no clear answer.

More to come…



I’ve had at least zero people ask me when they can preorder the new $70,200.00 Canon CINE SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 Ultra-telephoto Zoom lens. So for all of you, here it is!
