Canon at CES 2011. A Vague Initial Report.
« on: December 25, 2010, 01:48:19 PM »
Something coming I received some vague information that Canon will announce something beyond point and shoots for CES, which runs from January 6 – January 9 in Las Vegas.

It is a camera of some kind, no word on exactly what.

I have been told there will be no lenses announced with the product.

I hope to have more information soon, and I expect I will.

must be some sort of a video camera, maybe one that takes EF/EF-S lenses.

Beyond Point and shoot means DSLR or medium format I guess, Definetly No lens with the product means, it's interchangable. Have to wait until then.

If it was a mirrorless camera I would've expected new lenses to be announced - or maybe EF-S really is appropriate enough in this segment.  I wouldn't expect them to show a new mount (seems wasteful) and I really wouldn't expect them to show a new mount without a lens, or to show the camera with a new lens but not "announce" it (how would that work anyway?)

Anyway, interesting stuff.  Perhaps this means more buyers will be entering the realm of interchangeable lenses soon - I used to think that the TS-E on a low-end T1i was pretty unusual, but imagine tilt-shifts or Super Telephotos on a mirrorless body o_O

My guess would be new calculators (maybe with built-in webcam).

No new lenses? Shame, as I'm in the market for one at the moment and there are some holes in Canon's (and my) current line up.  I guess we'll now have to wait until PMA at the end of the summer for lens announcements.  Hoping for new lenses at CES was probably wishful thinking!

And built-in sarcasm detector too?

That calculator mouse is one of the more interesting (and probably useful) unusual business tools I've seen in a while, though.

At least we don't have long to wait.

Other possibilities:
- new photocopier
- new printer
- new projector
- new camera/projector
- new camera with printing built into it (finally, making that "print" button worthwhile)

The EOS 5D Mark Ⅲ is possible, though highly implausible - I do not think such a body would be announced without a new lens.
