LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., January 4, 2013 - At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 8th, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, unveils the vision behind its 2013 lineup of connected digital cameras, camcorders and printers.

Lenses / January 8, 2013 Announcements?
« on: January 04, 2013, 08:51:27 AM »

Not hearing much…

CES starts next week and with it a lot of camera companies will be launching consumer level products. Last year Canon launched the PowerShot G1 X for CES and that was about it.

No media events have been planned by Canon for next week. 99% of the time if Canon is launching a significant camera, there is some kind of media invite to showcase the new cameras.

However, when lenses are announced, that is not always the case. There was no media invites when the EF 24-70 f/4L IS and EF 35 f/2 IS were announced.

We’ve heard that two, possibly 3 lenses could be announced on January 8, 2013, but we have not received any confirmations from known sources yet.

I've handled it.  I mated it to a 1Dx at Photoplus and it is huge and quite hefty.  Great combination though.

I hear it's about the same weight as the EF 600 f/4L IS II at around 8lbs.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Review - EOS 6D By Gizmodo
« on: January 03, 2013, 08:21:57 AM »
Great stills, not so great video
Gizmodo has reviewed the EOS 6D and found it to be a great still camera. However, they did notice the video produced by the EOS 6D is prone to pretty bad moire, something that doesn’t affect the EOS 5D Mark III.

As I’ve told most people, if serious video is your thing, get a 5D Mark III. We are hoping the moire issue can be resolved somewhat with a future firmware update.

Gizmodo Conclusion If you are most interested in stills and don’t care that much about video quality, the 6D is a great value—it produces top-notch pictures, with very few compromises, at a lower price than we’ve ever seen. But if you are looking for the video prowess of the 5D Mark III, plan to pony up that extra $900.”

From Canon Singapore

Canon Singapore posted an image on the their Facebook page showing the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x.

They say in the caption:

“Be one of the first to check out the soon to be launched EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x at the EOS Experience Roadshow happening this weekend! We’ll be at Cathay Orchard Cineleisure this 4-6 January from 11am-10pm! See you there!”

The wait may finally be over. How much you ask? I’m still hearing it’ll be about $11,000 USD.

EOS Bodies / EOS 6D Review - Real World
« on: January 02, 2013, 01:26:50 PM »

Review of the EOS 6D

Photographer Michael Stringer used the new Canon EOS 6D at a wedding and thinks it’s a terrific camera. Below is his review and showcases the high ISO performance of Canon’s little full frame camera.

Some of Michael’s thoughts

“In a nutshell – the 6D is a smaller, lighter and cheaper version of the 5D Mark III if you photograph static (or slow moving) subjects. Handling is different (to the 5D III) but mostly fine and easy to get used to especially if coming from a Canon 60D or similar. Image quality is excellent and predictable and noise at high iso is extremely well controlled and film-like. The build quality is very good – it feels solid but not surprisingly a step below the 5D III. WIFI and GPS are useful additions depending on your needs.”

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Canon Sells More DSLRs Than Anyone Else in 2012
« on: December 30, 2012, 03:34:29 PM »
Even at the high end
For all the flack Canon gets from us passionate pundits, they continue to sell more DSLR cameras than anyone else.

Interchangeable Lens Camera Marketshare for 2012 (Japan)

  1. Canon 28.6%
  2. Nikon 25%
  3. Olympus 14.3%
  4. Sony 13.3%
  5. Panasonic 11.3%

An interesting note about Canon, if you remove the lowend of the DSLR market (Rebels, D3xxx/D5xxx), Canon’s marketshare increases. I imagine the 5D Mark III plays a big part in that, as well as the EOS-1D X.

Canon’s performance in the mirrorless segment cannot be properly measured until the 2013 numbers come in. For 2012, they sat at 2.1% marketshare.

EOS Bodies / Does a 39.3mp Sensor Exist? [CR1]
« on: December 30, 2012, 08:46:46 AM »
Big megapixel
We’ve heard previously about a 46mp image sensor that exists and is in testing. We’re now told that multiple large megapixel sensors exist, and one that is sure to reach market is a 39.3mp sensor.

There is also a suggestion that we will see DIGIC VI processors before the larger megapixel camera(s) reach the market in late 2013 or early 2014.

This comes from a new source, so take it with a grain of salt.

I’ve also heard from two different people that the earthquake that happened in Japan is still affecting manufacturing and development of new products at Canon, though Canon would never officially admit to such a thing.

As far as new stuff goes, we should see the APS-C segment and lenses addressed before a large megapixel camera arrives on the scene.
