EOS Bodies / Canon EOS 70D & EOS 7D Mark II Speculation [CR1]
« on: May 21, 2012, 12:12:11 PM »
APS-C replacements soon?
The first of what will probably be many spec lists about the mentioned cameras. With the knowledge of an 18mp T4i, it stands to reason that Canon will retain the same megapixel count in the next xxD and xD APS-C cameras. Still no mention whether or not it’s an updated sensor. I would certainly hope it is.

EOS 70D

  • Digic 5
  • 18mp
  • 100% viewfinder with grid lines like 7D
  • 19 AF Points from 7D
  • Continuous AF in LiveView & Video Recording
  • September Announcement

7D Mark II

  • Dual Digic 5
  • 100% viewfinder
  • 61 Point AF from 5D Mark III
  • Announced after 70D

This is a grain of salt spec list, though I do think anything announced for Photokina would be mostly finalized by now.

Canon General / Official Discontinued List
« on: May 21, 2012, 10:05:39 AM »
Say bye!
The following products have been officially discontinued by Canon, so if you find them in stock anywhere, the time is now.

The 580EX II is highly recommended, I rent a lot of them and they’ve been bulletproof.

Everything on this list has been replaced by newer, and more expensive versions. The EF 24 f/2.8 IS, EF 28 f/2.8 IS and EF 24-70 f/2.8L II have not begun shipping yet, and we’re hearing July 2012 at the earliest. The Speedlite 600EX-RT has begun shipping in pretty good quantities.

Canon EOS-1D X

As of the end of last week, Canon is still holding to the end of June for shipments to begin. That’s what is still being told to a couple of large retailers.


Canon EOS-1D X at B&H $6799


Canon EF 500 f/4L IS II & EF 600 f/4L IS II

These two lenses are proving to be more elusive to nail down. Current Canon says they’re begin shipping in May, however 2 retailers I spoke to have said they’re now being told the end of June to the beginning of July for availability.


If any of this changes (and it probably will), I will update.

New stuff to read

I have posted a couple new articles from one regular guest at Canon Rumors, Roger Cicala from LensRentals.com and a new article from the good people at Creative Pro.


 


A History Lesson: Exploding Photographers, Disappearing Clothes, and the Development of Film

Roger Cicala has done history articles in the past, and I’ll be honest, they’re about the only ones I read top to bottom. So if you like photography history, check the article out.


Get your B&W inspiration flowing: Learning to See in Black and White

This article is a great place to get some inspiration shooting black and white. It seems to be more popular than ever now. For more How-To articles, visit www.creativepro.com.

EOS Bodies / Canon BG-E11 Making its Way to Retailers
« on: May 18, 2012, 03:09:18 PM »

Finally!
We’ve had spottings of the BG-E11 showing up in Australia and the UK. They should make their way around the rest of the planet fairly quickly. I’m told we’ll be able to get them in Canada next week, I assume it’s the same in the United States.

Proof! From @iSimonDavis in the UK

EOS Bodies / Canon to Announce 2 Cameras in June [CR2]
« on: May 16, 2012, 08:43:00 AM »
June is the month
Received information from various places that Canon will announce 2 new cameras in June (not including PowerShot updates).

One camera will be an EOS (650D) and the other will be a mirrorless entry.

I’m sure we’re going to start seeing more information in the coming weeks. I also expect Canon to spend a bit of marketing dollars on a mirrorless camera. Maybe we’ll see some teasers.

From Canon USA
To Users of the EF200mm f/2L IS USM and EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM Lenses with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera.

Thank you for using Canon products.

We have confirmed that when the EF200mm f/2L IS USM and some units of the EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM lenses are used with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera, the Lenses may emit an abnormal noise.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera does not need to be repaired as a result of this phenomenon.

The support measures for this phenomenon have been decided and they are as described below.

Phenomenon
If either of the lenses is attached to the camera with the Image Stabilizer switch on the lenses set to ON, the Image Stabilizer will synchronize with the autofocusing (AF) function and an abnormal noise may occur. This abnormal noise does not affect captured images.

This phenomenon only occurs when the camera is used with either of the lenses, and does not occur when the camera is used with other lenses.

Affected Products

  • EF200mm f/2L IS USM Lens
  • EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM Lens

*This phenomenon does not occur with cameras other than the EOS 5D Mark III.

*If the fifth and sixth digit of the six-digit alphanumeric number that is imprinted on the lens mount of the above EF lenses is of any of the following numbers, the lens is affected.

  • EF200mm f/2L IS USM: If the fifth and sixth digit is 00, 01, or 02.
  • EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM:If the fifth and sixth digit is 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, or 06.

How to Identify Affected Products:
Please check the six-digit alphanumeric number as indicated in the image below.

Support
The Canon lenses affected by this phenomenon will be inspected and repaired free of charge starting from May 21, 2012. If you own one of the affected lenses, please contact our Customer Support Center.

This information is for residents of the United States and Puerto Rico only. If you do not reside in the USA or Puerto Rico, please contact the Canon Customer Support Center in your region.

Thank you,

Customer Support Operations

Canon U.S.A., Inc

What if you’re not in the USA?
Other countries should follow suit shortly.

Canon to let robots build you camera.
Canon has announced it will take all the humans off the production line for cameras, and replace them with robots. This switch could happen as early as 2015. Fear not though, the production line employees will move to other areas in the company and not be laid off.

No mention of lens manufacturing, I’m sure that sort of things does need human interaction.

No word on when Canon will replace the photographer with robots.

Lenses / Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L Officially Discontinued?
« on: May 15, 2012, 11:54:55 AM »
Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L
A few reports around the globe about the EF 24-70 f/2.8L being officially discontinued. This was an inevitable event.

I’ve had at least 2 suggestions that have said the version II delay has been to dump excess stock of the version 1. How plausible is that? I don’t know.

Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L @ B&H for $1579

There has been no mention of another delay for the version II. It’s still slated to start shipping in July. You can still preorder it at B&H for $2299. Do not expect any sort of price drop on the version II for quite some time.
