What can we expect for the EOS and PowerShot line tonight.

The most exciting thing is probably the new 18mp sensor inside the little EOS SL1.

What is the EOS SL1? Is this the EOS-b (mini Rebel) you reported earlier?

SL1 sounds a nice backup camera.

And while we're at it, why doesn't Canon go ahead and delay it for everyone because you arn't interested?

Why the sarcasm? Dylan basically said "These things don't interest me, so I'll wait until the next announcement." No complaining that this time there's not something for him, just "Oh well, better luck next time". What's wrong with that?

On topic, my fiancée bought a 650D fairly recently. It's kinda nice to see the 700D doesn't completely wipe the floor with it! I'm actually quite interested in the SL1 - a fully-featured EOS body in a tiny package? Sounds awesome!

So the 650D is replaced within 10 months??? That is a fast turnover even for a rebel!!!!

isn't this naming a bit reversed (?), I thought that with same number of digits, the smaller is for the higher (more pro, etc) series (1D>5D>6D), however it seems that the new rebels 700 is > than "mini rebels" 100 ... if that's what it is going to be called in some markets

... not that that is the important part of the news, I just thought... nevermind...
6D,   350D,  24-105 f4,   50 f1.8, 135mm f2, 14mm f2.8, Sigma 70-300 f4-5.6,   430EX II,   Godox TT520,   etc...

Nice additions to the low end, however I would like to see new additions to the high end.  I know that this will not happen, but it would be nice if Canon could produce a roadmap (general direction) of their future high end products.

I suspect that is being much more cautious about new products then they have been in the past.  Previously they introduced a lot of 1 off products (may have been in a few product but never went anywhere): eye control, DO lens, .. They have been burnt by sloppy engineering/production (e.g., AF problems with previous 1D series cameras).  Seem that they are been extra carefully these days to make sure everything is rock solid before releasing it. 

Interesting change of position ..

Cool... looking forward to the actual specs. Mainly because I expect any improvements (or the technology associated with it) will migrate across to other lines that may be part of my future digital photography equipment.

Currently I have a Canon 7D - a camera I really love using (and good ol' trusty Canon 350D). I really like the APS-C range Canon has at the moment, and if/when my Canon 7D is ready to be replaced / upgraded, something in the Canon 7Dnn will definitely be something I look at very closely.

The 18-55mm IS STM lens looks a good kit lens... if the optics are decent, that would be great... both with the STM focussing and IS.

I'm wondering if the new small DSLR will be suitable as a walk around for my gf.... she's a great photographer, and having a smaller camera would be great (she currently uses her Samsung phone - but obviously that is limited, particularly in terms of AF and IQ).

Regards

Paul
I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

The small camera seems interesting, but I have big hands.  It does seem to fall in line with Canon's many comments saying that they believe that a smaller body is what users want.
 
If the body has a high performance, enthusiasts may want one, but it does sound like another upgrade path for point and shoot users.  All the camera manufacturers are seeing huge drops in P&S sales and each seems to have their own idea of a upgrade path.  That's critical because P&S sales generate a lot of income.

I'm over 6' tall, wear size 13 shoes and X-Large gloves. The camera that fits me best is the Sony NEX. My least favorite is the 1D/Ds Pro bodies. I prefer a xxD body over a 7D or 5D3. YMMV ;)

I think this has a lot to do with how you hold a camera (and long lens). I carry the weight with my left hand and hold the right side with the thumb and middle finger of my right hand, and use the first finger for button pushing :)
