Limited Edition PowerShot Cameras Coming
« on: October 15, 2013, 07:49:23 AM »

Canon testing a niche market?

Canon will soon be launching very limited edition Canon PowerShot S120 and PowerShot G16 cameras for the collector. You’re going to be able to choose colors, have the cameras engraved and you will get special accessories and packaging.


Advanced orders will begin on October 30, 2013 via the Canon eStore.


Pricing for the cameras are a bit higher than normal, the S120 will be around $560 USD and the G16 in the $700 range. That pricing is based on todays Yen to USD conversion

On one side, Nikon is updating its D6(1)0 and trying to release better products. Sigma and Tamron are releasing top lenses at accessible prices.

On the other side, Canon releases non sense products (like a 24-70 f4 L) at crazy prices, or stupid toys like these limited editions...

Come on Canon !

YES, this is really what we all expect from Canon! As long as we get overpriced, engraved dwarf-sensored Pointnshoots we don't even notice that Sony is bringing FF-sensored mirrorless system cameras to market.

Canon is seriously off-track. They are in for hard times. Another Nokia going to happen.

Come on Canon !
Nikon is "updating D6(1)0" because they f**ked the first version with oily sensor, they did the same thing with thier over heating SB900 ... Sigma & Tamron are "trying to release better products" because they had some really sub standard products before ... while these companies were churning out those sub-standard products, Canon was producing/selling some of the best lenses on this planet ... so "come on" yourself and get your facts right ::)

Where does "we" & "all" come from? ... those 2 cameras are "limited" edition, i.e "we" and/or all" do not necessarily buy them, only those who are passionate about collecting cameras are the ones who will buy them (with an exception of few people who might like to have a camera with their name engraved).

Yes, this is what I expect from Canon. Some useless items in between some perfect ones such as the 5D3, 24-70 II, 17 TSE, the great whites, etc.

If you take off your doomsday glasses and look at the financials of Canon and Sony, probably you'll be surprised that it is Sony that seems to be more likely than Canon to go under. They make more money on life-insurance than their electronics division, actually they don't make any money on their electronics division at all.
5D3, 6D
16-35L, 24-70L II, 70-200L II, 100-400L, 50L, 85L II, 135L, 24TSE, 40, 100 macro, 600RT x 4
I have more photo gear than I need. The blame lies squarely with Canonrumors
