Announcement Day July 23, 2012? [CR2]
« on: June 22, 2012, 07:24:05 AM »
First mention
We received the first mention of the next Canon product announcement date. I’m told the date is pretty solid, but as always, Canon can move things around at the last minute.

It’s expected we’ll see a new mirrorless system announced as well as a few lenses. We probably won’t see new full sized EOS cameras or PowerShots announced until August or September.

400 + 1.4x is not enough for close ups at a safe distance of bears in the wild.

You need 700mm or more in glass.

Doesn't that depend on your definition of "safe"?

The lenses will surly be new ones to go with the mirroless system if that's what it is so, a pancake, a short zoom and a longer zoom would match others.
So much to speculate on as its a new line - what sensor size is my first question?

Off topic a bit but wondering if this is ever going to show up e.g. in the mirrorless from Canon. OR does everyone who wants this use an eye-fi card. Personally I just want to be able to make an ftp link to my camera.

Do any of the recent rebels or compacts from Canon have wifi and sharing capabilities? Am I the only one who thinks getting your photos off your camera shouldn't involve taking out your memory card or am I just lazy?

I recently bought an android phone and what with es file explorer (essentially like explorer in windows combined with media playback) and swiftp (ftp server on your phone, with password set up etc) it is never EVER necessary to tether my phone to the computer....

I would love this on my 5D or a mirrorless. For that matter, I'd like to be able to load to Picasa...

I hope it's APS-C, but I don't think Canon will give us any surprise, most probably the 1.85X from G1X

Hope they don't hobble the video on this- if there's no shutter, there is a lot of possibility where video is concerned.

Canon, you will sell tons of these things and lenses if you at least match the video quality of a 5DIII- I will pre-order now if you give us that.

Someone send this to Canon, please   ;)

P.S. Can anyone here speak to the video quality on the G1X?

Just a note, not many people know, when you use the FTP on eye-fi cards it goes through eye-fi's servers first, and apparently takes a very long time.  They have some new app for iphone/android that works with the cards. Don't know much about it though.

Well, if you want moire-less video, they might be able to do that. But, you obviously won't be getting the shallow depth of field or the general look of the 5dIII if its an APS-C or smaller sensor.

As for the G1X...well, I wouldnt get your hopes up video wise

If this is Full Frame and under $2500 I would crap myself in shock and happiness and preorder one without even thinking. :P :P
Unfortunately, I think it will be the sensor from the G1X.
I was very happy to see the 1.85x sensor in the G1X, but for a mirrorless system, i'm full frame or bust. Since getting my 5D Classic I'm in love with Full Frame like it's film era photography and I'm not going back.
I really hope that there is 3 models/grades of the Canon Mirrorless system as has been talked about before. G1X sensor size being the entry level, 1.6x/APS-C being the prosumer/upgrade, and FF being the pro version. This would be groundbreaking and awesome. If Canon plans to do this, I hope they announce it soon before I switch to the(hopefully soon to come) D600. This is one time where I think announcing products in development would really help the brand.

Allright fellow canonites! Prepare for some more disappointment.  ;D

I may be easy, but, I haven't been disappointed.

Ok, I am easy, but, that is besides the point.

Hah! Reminds me of my favorite bear safety tip from the folks at the National Park Service in Yellowstone: "Bear spray is not used like insect repellent and is not a substitute for common sense."

Yeah, that's what I meant- can't get the shallow DOF full frame look but it would be nice to get really clean, crisp, moire-less video.
