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

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.

Canon General / Canon See Impossible Explained
« on: October 07, 2014, 07:32:31 AM »

From AdWeek

“As smartphones continue to erode sales of cameras and equipment, traditional brands are building digital platforms that double as marketing assets. Today, Canon launched the multiyear “See Impossible” campaign, shifting the marketing focus away from products and onto customers’ stories.


Canon’s campaign centers around a new microsite, which houses a series of digital videos that highlight how customers use a range of products. One 45-second clip shows how an author used the technology to self-publish her book. Going forward, Canon will expand the site’s content to include submissions from consumers and clients.”

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.

« 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).


keeper-FB-Ad


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.

EOS Bodies / No EOS-1D X Replacement in 2014 [CR2]
« on: September 29, 2014, 09:08:47 AM »

There’s been some talk about an EOS-1D X replacement some time in 2014, and it has been discussed even more with the apparent price drop on the camera through grey market retailers.


I have it from a good source that the EOS-1D X won’t be replaced in 2014, but should see an update in 2015. This is a pretty safe bet, especially judging by the EOS 7D Mark II features. That brand new 65 point AF system should be making its way to the EOS 5D Mark IV and EOS-1D X Mark II within the next 12-18 months.

Lenses / Review: Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS by Dustin Abbott
« on: September 29, 2014, 08:58:19 AM »

The extensive reviews of the Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS continue to roll on. This time Dustin Abbot has posted his review of the Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS.


This is another review that is quite glowing about the Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS. It looks to be a good upgrade if you have an EF 17-40 f/4L and a great choice if you need a fill frame wide angle zoom don’t need the extra stop of light that the EF 16-35 f/2.8L II provides. I have yet to seriously shoot with the lens, but I hope to change that soon.


From Dustin’s Conclusion

“This lens is good…really, really good. It is so competent that you have to stretch to find criticisms. What is even more true is that this lens is going to serve hundreds of thousands of photographers around the world very, very well.”
