2013 Predictions for Canon EOS Products
« on: February 19, 2013, 05:40:44 PM »

From Nippon Magazine

A Japanese magazine has posted their predictions as to what they think Canon will be releasing in 2013. The list falls in line with most things we’ve heard, except for the last camera mentioned.



  • EOS 70D – March 2013

  • EOS 700D – June 2013

  • EOS Me – July 2013

  • EOS 7D Mark II – August 2013

  • EOS 3D – October 2013


The first four on the list are a lock to be coming in 2013, and the timing looks correct as well. As for the October announcement, I’ve heard nothing regards to that. I was told by a great source that Canon would be releasing 3 DSLRs and 1 EOS M body in 2013. However, that does leave a loophole for an “announcement” of another body, even if it isn’t available for purchase until 2014.

If the 3D is the bigMP camera, then those two are so divergent you might actually want BOTH! :P

The 3D will have eye-controlled focus and a blink-activated shutter. You heard it here first.   :P

Anyone know what Canon camera is in this below linked picture?  Never seen one with the red piece by the hotshoe.

Update:Even more suspicious is the Canon logo has been removed, this has a pop-up flash and looks to be in new condition.  Can't place the lens either the more I look at this - size wise looks like the 85mm 1.2 but the bulge appears different by the camera mount from the current 85,1.2???

Dont know but that red piece somehow makes the body look bad@$$/Evil. Could that red panel indicate pro-line series/bodies like the rings are for their L series lenses? Or it could very well be modified by the user who knows :P

Lens is the 50L. Camera looks like a 7D.  If it was a new body, it would have the locking mode dial. The 7D has a separate piece of plastic where that red piece is, would be one click with the PS magic wand and a color change.

You joke, but I like the eye controlled focus of my Elan 7e. I don't know if the technology is accurate enough to select and individual AF point in a 61pt grid, but if it's close it would be awesome.

Yes, if not this next cycle, definitely soon after eye-controlled AF will make its appearance in the higher end bodies. Conceptually, it is an old technology for canon, but will need tweaking for the modern AF systems. Very doable.
