Canon EOS-1D X Mark II Talk [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | April 26, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told there are a handful of Canon EOS-1D X Mark II bodies currently being tested in the field. Canon hopes to announce this camera some time in 2015.

We’re told the cameras employ a higher megapixel sensor than the 18.1mp on the current EOS-1D X. The autofocus system is all new with more AF points and there is “new technology” in the viewfinder display. There is new battery technology to help lower the overall weight of the camera. The LCD is larger than the current camera and there will be obvious ergonomic changes.

It isn’t known if there is a new DIGIC processor in the camera, or what card types are going to be supported.

More to come…

Review: Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

Review: Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

By Canon Rumors | April 26, 2015 | Canon Reviews

DXOMark has completed their review of the EF 24-105 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens.

From DXOMark

Despite ranking behind the more expensive Sigma and Canon pro L competition, the new 24-105mm STM standard zoom offers respectable results across the board. But if you can afford to shell out an extra $300 for the $899 Sigma 24-105mm f/4, you’ll certainly benefit from better edge sharpness at the wider aperture settings, a faster fixed f/4 aperture when shooting at 105mm, and better light transmission, too.

New Firmware Coming for EOS 7D Mark II

New Firmware Coming for EOS 7D Mark II

By Canon Rumors | April 23, 2015 | Canon Firmware

According to a reader on our forum, Canon has confirmed they’re attempting to solve a service issue with his camera with new firmware. The issues with his camera have been autofocus related, and even after replacing parts of the camera, Canon service was still not happy with how it performed.

I asked if it was a new firmware and they said that it in fact is a new firmware and it should come in early next week

When we’ll see the new firmware released to the public is unknown, but it could be a relatively significant update for the camera.

EOS C500 Mark II Going Higher Than 4K? [CR1]

EOS C500 Mark II Going Higher Than 4K? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | April 22, 2015 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

We’re told that the Cinema EOS C500 Mark II is going to be announced some time in mid 2016 and that the camera will likely shoot at a resolution “well above 4K”. Canon “knows it was very late to the 4K market” and does not want to be considered late to the 6K+ world.

The form factor of the camera may change as well, as we’ve heard constant rumors of Canon doing a shoulder style camera in the Cinema EOS line.

The C500 was announced in August of 2012, which was nearly 8 months after the C300. By most accounts the C500 didn’t sell all that well, unlike the C300 which exceeded expectations. It stands to reason that it’ll have to be a more advanced product to justify the price and to have any hope of competing with ARRI.
