Review: Canon EOS 750D & EOS 760D via DXOMark

By Canon Rumors | July 16, 2015 | Canon Reviews

DXOMark has completed their reviews of the sensors in the EOS Rebel 750D and EOS Rebel 760D and found them to be nearly identical.

In regards to the EOS 750D (T6i)

As an entry-level model the Canon EOS 750D (T6i) makes some compromises in layout and controls — for example, there’s no top plate LCD as found on the EOS 760D(T6s), but sensor performance is on par with the camera maker’s mid- and high-end models, the EOS 70D and the recently-introduced EOS 7D Mk II. While it’s true that the Canon sensors are behind the very best APS-C models in terms of low ISO performance (particularly noticeable when comparing dynamic range), the company is making some noteworthy advances.

In regards to the EOS 760D (T6s)

While it’s not our place to discuss why Canon should choose to introduce two models that vary mostly by their controls (although the 760D’s tracking AF capability in live view is likely a worthwhile feature), the sensor performance for the EOS 760D is intriguing. Canon has made significant advances over the previous generation sensor, particularly with regard to low ISO noise levels and improved dynamic range. While sensor performance is still behind the very best APS-C models, Canon appears to be taking up the challenge set by Sony, and while it’s still got some way to go, that has to be good news for the consumer.

Canon Updates Digital Photo Professional 4

Canon Updates Digital Photo Professional 4

By Canon Rumors | July 16, 2015 | Canon Software

Canon has released an updated version of its popular Digital Photo Professional 4 (DPP 4) RAW processing software, which expands the support of its DSLRs to include EOS 1200D, EOS 60Da and EOS 60D as well as its PowerShot G7 X and PowerShot G1 X Mark II premium expert compacts and EOS M2 and EOS M Compact System Cameras…

The new update – version 4.3.0 – also incorporates two critical fixes, including a phenomenon in which the picture style set on the camera is not transferred to Digital Photo Professional properly and a phenomenon in which the copy and paste command using keyboard shortcuts cannot be used for the folder name.

“As part of Canon’s ongoing development of its Digital Photo Professional software, regular updates and fixes keep it up to date with our end users. Canon always listens carefully to customer feedback and this latest update is an example of that,” commented Mike Burnhill, Canon Europe’s Professional Imaging Technical Support Programme manager.

Patent: Lubricating Canon Body Cap

Patent: Lubricating Canon Body Cap

By Canon Rumors | July 15, 2015 | Canon Patents

A patent for a Canon DSLR body cap that lubricates and protects the lens mount has appeared. I’ve never personally experienced a dried out or wind burned camera body lens mount, but maybe you have?

As pointed out in the forum though, this sort of concept could be to help protect the rubber seals on lenses. They can crack over time and need replacement. Or perhaps it’s to keep the contacts on the camera body and lens clean, maybe both.

Amazon Prime Day Has Arrived

By Canon Rumors | July 15, 2015 | Ad Post

Today is the first (of many?) Amazon Prime Day, which Amazon promises will have more deals than Black Friday. The only catch is that you need an Amazon Prime membership, which is free for the first 30 days.

There’s little chance of any Canon branded items being featured, due to MAP regulations, but there should be a lot of electronics and and other photographic items on sale.

The deals today are global and if you go to your regional Amazon site, you should see some unique deals.
