Canon has released a new firmware for the Cinema EOS C200. It looks like it’s just a bug fix update.
Firmware Version 18.104.22.168.00 incorporates the following fix:
- Fixes a phenomenon in which the start time code is not correctly displayed when MP4 clips captured at 59.94P/50.00P frame rate are imported into NLE software.
*RAW clips are not affected.

We’ve been eagerly awaiting detailed specification confirmation for the PowerShot G1 X Mark III, which is scheduled to be announced in mid October.
We’ve been told to think of the camera as an EOS M5 with a fixed lens. That should tell us it will be equipped with the 24mp APS-C DPAF sensor as well as utilizing the DIGIC 7 processor. We’ve been told previously that the lens will be a 24-120mm 35mm equivalent, though we don’t know the speed of the lens at this time. I think you should be able to piece together what the rest of the specifications for the camera will be.
The previous iterations of the PowerShot G1 X did not have EVF’s, but I think it’s likely the new camera will if it’s modelled after the EOS M5, though we have not yet confirmed that bit of information.
We’ll update as soon as we receive more specifications.
Just a reminder that we’ve been told that this will be the only PowerShot G series camera announced for the remainder of the year. We’ll likely see more ahead of CES in January of 2018.

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Honors Canon’s Impressive Lineup of 4K Zoom Lenses
MELVILLE, N.Y., September 28, 2017 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced that its parent company Canon Inc. will be recognized at the 69th Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards for its complete lineup of 4K field production zoom lenses for large-format, single-sensor cameras, which includes all of Canon’s CN-E, CINE-SERVO and COMPACT-SERVO lines of zoom lenses. Presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS), the Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards honor development and innovation in broadcast technology and recognize companies, organizations and individuals for breakthroughs in technology that have a significant effect on television engineering.
“We are grateful to receive this esteemed recognition for our comprehensive collection of 4K zoom lenses for large-format single-sensor cameras,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A. “As resolutions leap from HD to 4K and beyond, it is important to recognize the lens’ role in resolving those pristine images and the importance placed on manufacturers and optical engineers to keep pace and match the sensor technologies of the more advanced cameras and sensors in the market today. The images we admire on screen all start with the lens.”
Among those lenses recognized with this prestigious award is Canon’s far-reaching CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens, the world’s longest 4K ultra-telephoto zoom lens. Canon announced the CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm Zoom Lens in October 2014 and it began shipping in early 2015. Since its launch, the lens has been a part of many live broadcast, and innovative television productions including National Geographic’s groundbreaking live television event, “Earth Live.”

The last time we were told about a new 135mm lens, it turned out to be a new lens, the TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro, which will have its fans in a niche market. The 135mm lens a majority of people were looking for was an update to the classic EF 135mm f/2L USM.
The EF 135mm f/2L USM was announced in April of 1996, so it’s likely we’re finally going to see a replacement and the addition of IS seems to be a logical next step.
We’re told that a new and fast 135mm is planned for next year and that it will have IS. We’re wondering if a bunch of IS fast primes have been designed alongside the recently announced EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM, as we heard recently that a new 50mm f/1.4L IS is also out there in prototype form.
We get the feeling such a lens will come deep into 2018, and it won’t be something we’ll see for CP+ in February.
This is a [CR1] rumor, so please treat it accordingly.

I don’t think anyone does printer reviews better than Keith over at Northlight Images, and his review of the Epson SureColor P5000 continues his tradition of easy to read and thorough reviews of printers.
I am personally in the market for a printer, and it’s always tough choosing between Canon (loyalty) and Epson (great quality). If you’re in the market for a 17″ printer, I think you should definitely add the P5000 to your shortlist.
As with the Epson P7000 I tested last year, the ink set with its additional orange and green inks, and range of greys, gives excellent prints with smooth gradations. It’s easy to profile, and even the ‘canned’ profiles provided are much better than you used to get with printers (mainly due to modern printers being much more consistent and linear).
For want of repeating myself, if you can’t make great prints with the P5000, then I’m afraid the problem is far more likely to be with your own skill levels (I apply this to myself as well…) Read the full review
The Epson P5000 is available at B&H Photo
