Canon General / More Canon Lens Mentions [CR2]
« on: October 10, 2014, 08:29:31 AM »

We’ve received a couple of more confirmations from people that the EF 11-24 f/4L we first reported back in August is in fact legit. The speculation on pricing for the EF 11-24 f/4L seems to be consistent across the board at around $3000 USD.

The following information is [CR1]. A separate person has told us that the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II was supposed to be announced at Photokina but was delayed, no reason for the delay was given. Canon themselves have come out and said that a replacement is coming, of course they didn’t specify when. We’re told to expect an announcement in November, with availability coming in December of this year. We’re not holding our breath on this one, as the 100-400 replacement has haunted us for quite some time now.

EOS Bodies / High Megapixel Camera to Come in Two Variants? [CR1]
« on: October 09, 2014, 04:48:05 PM »

An unknown person has sent us a bunch of cryptic information about Canon’s roadmap over the next 6-9 months. I have been unable to confirm any of it, but hopefully this post will help shed some light on things.

We’re told that Canon will introduce a high megapixel camera in Q1 of 2015 and it will be released in two variants. What those two variants are wasn’t mentioned. I do not see Canon doing what Nikon did with the D800 and D800E, I’m thinking that the second variant could possibly be an astronomy version, like the 60Da and 20Da. The other possibility could be an EOS and Cinema EOS version of the camera, and everyone can drool at the possibility of an affordable 4K DSLR from Canon.

It was also stressed that the cameras being talked about wouldn’t be in the $8000-$9000 range like has been discussed recently, and likely cost half of that.

EOS Bodies / The Next Cinema EOS Camera Will Be..... [CR2]
« on: October 09, 2014, 04:10:41 PM »

We’re told that the next Cinema EOS camera to be released will be a replacement to the EOS C100 and not the C300 or C500. No details were given as to when the camera would be released or any specifications, but I would assume it’ll come before NAB 2015 in April.

Saving a new C300 or C500 for that show would make marketing sense. Although, we do hear that Canon has plans for an over the shoulder style Cinema EOS camera, and perhaps that could be shown at NAB.

More to come…



Canon Netherlands has posted a video showing the outline of the previously mentioned large sensor premium Canon PowerShot. The world “grote” translates to “large”.

Translation from Canon Netherlands (thanks Ikkehans)

“Canon is doing it’s utmost to combine and offer first-class image quality and handling in a compact housing. The newest model in the Premium Compact line up combines a large sensor and powerful zoom for excellent photos from a distance. Register to receive more information as soon as this model becomes available”

EOS Bodies / B&H Photo Hands-On With the EOS 7D Mark II
« on: October 08, 2014, 09:26:58 PM »

B&H Photo has posted their hands-on video with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II. As you might expect, they’re extremely favourable of the new APS-C camera from Canon. I can’t wait to try it out.

EOS Bodies / Multilayer Sensors are Coming From Canon [CR2]
« on: October 08, 2014, 02:48:30 PM »

Canon has been hard at work on multi-layer sensors and they will be coming in an upcoming professional level full frame DSLR we’re told. There will be two cameras based on this technology coming in 2015, one would expect a replacement for the EOS-1D X and perhaps another professional body with a high megapixel count. There was no mention of an EOS 5D Mark IV.

The high resolution camera is expected to be announced in Q1 of 2015. Even though we have heard from places unknown that such a camera would make an appearance at PhotoPlus at the end of this month. A Canon Explorer of Light has told us they’ve been promised a high megapixel camera to come “sooner than later”.

I suspect most of this came from Photokina chatter.

Pricewatch Deals / Deal: Canon EOS 5D Mark III w/24-105 f/4L IS $2899

BigValueInc (99.3% approval) is selling the Canon EOS 5D Mark III w/24-105 f/4L for a $2899 (Reg $3799 after MIR) via ebay. This deal isn’t likely to last too long.

Another mention of a development announcement for a high megapixel pro body from Canon coming in 2014. There were no specifications given, or a date that this could happen.

CR’s Take

I’m still not convinced this isn’t a product of the previous posts on the topic being recycled, as well as Canon’s own mention of it. With all the hype surrounding the EOS 7D Mark II and the fact we won’t see the camera until November, I can’t see anything happening for a new DSLR before the EOS 7D Mark II comes to market.

Pricewatch Deals / LensRentals.com Introduces Keeper
« on: October 02, 2014, 02:10:53 PM »

Saying goodbye can be the hardest part of any rental. With our new Keeper program, you can try it, then buy it!

Just rent an eligible item, and then we’ll give you a starting purchase price based on the age of the copy we send you. We’ll even give you a credit for a portion of the rental fees. Even better, you can handle the entire transaction with just a few clicks on our website (although we’d be more than happy to handle it over the phone if you are just dying to talk to one of our friendly customer service agents).


What equipment is eligible?

Almost all of our equipment is eligible. If it is impossible for us to get a quick replacement for a particular piece of gear, either because it is backordered or because our suppliers are slow to get us new copies, it may not be offered for sale. If you see a piece of equipment not offered for sale, just send us an email. In many cases, we just haven’t gotten around to updating the product to be eligible for sale.

EOS Bodies / Next Rebel Going EVF? [CR1]
« on: October 02, 2014, 07:47:22 AM »

The next Rebel, apparently coming in Q2 of 2015 will be the first Canon DSLR to use a electronic viewfinder. The camera will also feature the 70D’s 20mp sensor that uses split pixel technology and also feature DIGIC 6 like most of the new cameras. This combination of technologies would raise the bar considerably as far as image quality goes in the Rebel line.
