Much Ado About Nothing at NAB 2014 From Canon
« on: March 26, 2014, 09:18:07 AM »

Recent reports about Canon releasing two camera bodies for NAB 2014 in Las Vegas next month look like they were recycled rumors from a long while back.


We’re told by various folks that Canon will make some announcements of non camera items that won’t be a big deal to most people. It looks like a quiet NAB from Canon for the second year in a row.


Again, that means no Cinema EOS camera and no DSLR style video camera. The firmware update for the EOS-1D C is still on the table, and I expect to see a cinema lens or two.


More to come..

Canon seems to be asleep at the wheel. The advantages of the DSLR are starting to become liabilities, especially for those of us who shoot mixed stills/video or documentary style video. Sony is making huge strides in the mirrorless market, especially with their a7R full frame camera, and the DSCRX10 point and shoot. I've been shooting Canon for 25 years, but if I were to buy a camera today, I'd choose the Sonys over their Cannon counterparts.

Canon will be sure to highlight their Cinema CPS membership, bargain priced at a mere $1000 per year.

Sounds like someone got told to keep their mouth shut for one more day until Canon could get an announcement out there.

I was really expecting them to update the c300, or show up with a cheaper C-model DSLR.

You're probably right. The c300 was released in November so it'll be 3 full years this fall.

I wasn't bothered about NAB or any video announcements but this is getting beyond a joke. Almost April now and nothing but rumors of nothing this year. And when it does finally come we all know deep down it will probably be a powershot or rebel!

What do you mean? Where I am in Asia it is free, but they do make checks to ensure you are a pro working photographer.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

There's a free level (Silver) in the USA, too - and it's worth just about what you pay for it (you get an ID card and you can call the CPS hotline, woot).  The paid levels (Gold, $100;,Platinum, $300; Cinema, $1K) get you repair discounts (20-30%), faster repair turnaround (3 or 2 days), free shipping on repairs (one or both ways), loaners during repair, and free equipment evaluation loans.  To get CPS support for Cinema products, you need that membership level.

Canon USA doesn't seem to care if you're a pro photographer (their terms state you must be, but they don't verify anything).  They care that you own a sufficient amount of gear to qualify (eligible gear has point values, you need more points for higher levels), and that you pay the fee.

Oh yes.  I'm bitterly disappointed that Canon hasn't released the T6i and SL2 that I've so eagerly been awaiting...   A few >$20K Cinema EOS lenses and some consumer lenses refreshed with STM to round out 'The Year of the Lens' and I'll be a happy camper.

what if canon announces all the new stuff at photokina, at once?   :P

nah.... i hope that won´t be the case.

but one thing is sure, canon has "lost" some of my money in the past 18 month.
nothing new from canon that interested me meant the money burning a hole in my pocket was spend on third party stuff.

they could have sold me a new 100-400mm, 35mm L, 50mm and a 12-24mm easily.
now at least a new 100-400mm and 35mm L i will not buy so soon i guess.

and the new 50mm from sigma, if it delivers the performance promised, makes it unlikely i will buy a new canon 50mm.
