The first shipments of the Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D have hit North America. Norman Camera has bodies available and ready to go. No word on kits at this time.

With the EOS-1D X, the following accessories will also be available: LP-E4N, LC-E4N, EW-E7, Ec-CV & WFT-E6B. The GP-E1 is listed for a July, 2012 release.
What this means for initial stock is unknown at this time.

By the looks of things, and what people have told me. Initial stock for all the above items should be pretty good initially and be great in July and August. There appears to be a wait for the T4i w/18-135 IS STM kit initially, although the lens by itself is showing availability in late June, we’ll see what transpires with that.
It’s unknown if the expected mirrorless entry counts against the mentioned 4 camera bodies.
Speculation about what the 4 cameras could possibly be are below.
1) “Entry Level” full frame camera. Think of it as a direct replacement for the 5D Mark II.
2) Prosumer APS-C, possibly the 70D and not a direct replacement of the 7D.
3) The big megapixel entry, mentioned to be an EOS-1D style body.
4) A mirrorless entry.
If the mirrorless doesn’t count against the 4 purported camera bodies, I’m unsure what else Canon could have up their sleeves for the EOS line. A few people have suggested a 5D in the cinema EOS lineup, however I don’t think that’s likely until after the EOS-1D C starts shipping in late 2012.
As with all reviews at Canon Rumors, there’s absolutely no technical stuff. We just try to tell you what we think about it in real world situations. There will be lots of pixel peeping coming in the near future I’m sure from the sites that do it great.
We’ll update the review in the coming months, we just haven’t had enough time to put it through all the various situations we might use a 600mm lens for.
We’ve heard to expect some shipments in late June & July, with preferential treatment given to the Olympic photographers. The rest of us should see 1D X’s in August and September.

In shooting with the T4i, it’s clear that the sum of all those spec upgrades is a camera that truly feels new. That’s a good step for Canon, as we felt the T3i was a lackluster, marginal improvement on the massively successful T2i that preceded it. With the T3i staying in the line as a mid-level option (above the T3 and below the T4i, for now), that separation was necessary for the T4i to be relevant.

In my opinion, the Kiboko 30L is the best travel backpack if you have lots of lenses, or big lenses. It’ll fit any current super telephoto in the Canon lineup.
They’ll ship them worldwide.
Lens Bracelet Official Release
The Lens Bracelet® Pro Series #1 is finally here. Before I get into the details, I have to thanks Lens Rentals for making this whole thing possible. Without them I wouldn’t have any of the models needed in order to make these guys. I don’t actually own over 25k in lenses. But I do own the bracelets! You should too…

The Lens Bracelet® Pro Series #1 is made up of 10 different designs, more intricate and a bit thicker than before. I tried my hardest to break one of these things, and I couldn’t. So either I am weak as crap, or they are strong as ever. Lets go with the latter.
Canon Canada expects a very small number of cameras in July, and that should be the same across the globe.
It still looks like August, and more likely September, is when we’ll see larger quantities of the 1D X.
Canon has announced an upcoming firmware update, 7D Firmware Version 2, for the 18 Megapixel EOS 7D that includes a raft of new features to further enhance the capabilities of Canon’s flagship APS-C format DSLR.
The new EOS 7D Firmware Version 2 update will enhance the camera with the following additional features:
IMPROVED RAW MAXIMUM BURST
In the EOS 7D the maximum burst of RAW file frames was 15 – with the firmware update this will be significantly increased so that the camera’s buffer will handle up to 26 RAW frames in a continuous burst.
IN-CAMERA RAW CONVERSION
The EOS 7D will allow for in-camera post-processing of images. RAW images can be edited in-camera and options can be changed before saving the finished file as a ready-to-print JPEG or for sending wirelessly. This function can be used with full resolution RAW files, but not with M-RAW or S-RAW files.
The settings for in-camera RAW processing include White balance, Picture Style, High ISO speed noise reduction, Colour Space, and lens data corrections (Peripheral Illumination Correction, distortion correction and Chromatic Aberration Correction).
IMAGE RATING CAPABILITIES
Like other Canon EOS DSLRs, such as the EOS 60D, EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III, the EOS 7D will be able to rate images from 1 to 5 stars in-camera for quicker and easier sorting of images within your workflow. The ratings can be used to sort images in applications such as Adobe Elements, Adobe Bridge and Apple Aperture. The ratings are XMP compliant and Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software has been updated to reflect this.
AUTO ISO MAXIMUM SETTING
Within the EOS 7D’s shooting menu photographers will have the ability to set a maximum ISO speed for ISO Auto, within the ISO range of 400-6400, so that you can minimise the amount of noise in your images.
MANUAL ADJUSTMENT FOR AUDIO RECORDING LEVELS
During EOS Movie shooting you will be able to manually adjust the audio recording levels to one of 64 levels, whilst the sound volume during playback can be set to one of 11 levels. During movie recording noise from the aperture is reduced and the camera also has an automatic wind cut filter.
Within the camera’s image-recording menu with all JPEG images you will be able to resize the image (for image downsizing) and save it as a new image. Note that the aspect ratio cannot be changed.
SUPPORT FOR THE GP-E2 GPS UNIT
The GP-E2 unit arrived with the EOS 5D Mark III and this firmware update will enable the GPS unit to be used with the EOS 7D, via a cable connection, so that photographers can geo-tag images with latitude and longitude data in the EXIF fields.
QUICK CONTROL DURING PLAYBACK
With the Quick Control (Q) button pressed during image playback photographers will be able to select options for protect images, rotate images, rate images, resize images, highlight alert, AF point display and image jump.
FILE NAME SETTING
In the EOS 7D’s camera settings menu in user setting 1 the first four characters of the file name can be adjusted, whilst in user setting 2 the first three characters of the file name can be adjusted and the fourth will be set automatically according to the recording quality.
TIME ZONE SETTING
Within the EOS 7D’s camera settings menu you will be able to set the time zone, plus daylight saving time can also be set.
FASTER SCROLLING OF MAGNIFIED IMAGES
The screen scrolling speed will be faster for scrolling through images when they are enlarged. The ease of use is improved when using the camera to zoom in and check focus.
The existing impressive specifications of the EOS 7D include up to 8fps shooting speed, high ISO sensitivity up to 12,800 for low light shooting, an iFCL metering system with a 63-zone Dual-layer Metering Sensor for superbly accurate exposures, plus outstanding in-camera Speedlite Transmitter flash technology.
The lens looks pretty decent in the center, and tails off a bit in the corners. However, it looks better than both of the current non L 50′s in the Canon lineup.
I also dig the moniker “Shorty Forty” for the new pancake. Taemobig on our forum may or may not have come up with the name.
