Announcement Talk Begins
« on: January 03, 2014, 01:22:56 AM »
There are various reports of Canon making announcements on January 7, 2014 and new one talking about a press conference in Hong Kong on January 9, 2014.

CES 2014 begins on January 7, 2014 and we expect new PowerShot cameras, such as the replacement to the SX50 IS. The speculation about January 9, 2014 is a bit odd, as the invites are only for Hong Kong. The last 2 Asia based announcements turned out to be a white SL1 and the EOS M2, so I’m not expecting too much at this time. Canon not announcing something for CES itself, but announcing it on the second last day of CES on the other side of the planet, now that would be a first.

Until we see press invites for other countries outside of Hong Kong, I wouldn’t get too excited about the January 9, 2014 speculation.

Announcements usually happen in the days before the start of a show, but CES might be a exception.  I've been waiting for a SX50 with a touch screen, GPS, and Wi-Fi.  I expect to wait a while longer.

I agree. I don't think it's going to be anything to get excited about.

I thought the lackluster announcements of 2013 pointed towards speculation/rumors that in January 2014 or at least Q1 there would be some big announcements?

If I was running Canon marketing, I would be very eager to have something to announce early this year, given the very boring 2013. I doubt it will be a 1D type body, but could well be the 7D replacer. And with all the signals we have seen about new lenses, I would expect to see something fairly early this year.

It doesn't sound very exciting at all. I agree with others though that 2013 was a super dull on the Canon front. I hope Canon releases some new smaller sized full frame cameras in 2014 and anything a little different.

I have my doubts that this will be anything exciting.

It's a Photokina year, too, so we might be waiting until September :(

Please Canon.  Just give us a good fast 50mm!!!! Not one with a plastic mount, not one with an unreliable micro usm focus motor and not one with focus shift!!

I grew up on 50mm and it is still my favorite walk around length. 
 
Oh, and please release it in N America...

we are used to announcements from other companies only.

So maybe we will se an exiting price increase announceemnt, this will immediately push the sales of "classic" canon products. ;D

Come on 7D2 and 400F5.6 2......

My thoughts exactly.


On a side note, if the SX60 has good controls and good image quality at the 1768mm zoom end (35mm equivalent), it may just help me push back any big white purchases.
