There’s some talk about a “significant” Canon announcement for NAB. I wouldn’t think NAB would bring about a DSLR announcement, but maybe something in the camcorder realm is a possibility.
Availability of anything new is another story.
Lots of people are asking what’s going to happen with stock levels and things like that with Canon and other Japanese origin gadgets. The answer is, I don’t know.
Canon is telling their reps not to say anything about Japan and what effect this tragedy is going to have on the industry. For the moment, no one really knows.
What I will say, is do not expect this to be rectified in a couple of weeks. We’re talking months before anything gets back to what is considered “normal”.
Canon Canada Cancels Upcoming 60D Rebate
Canon Canada has cancelled an upcoming instant rebate program on the 60D, a casualty of the earthquake. There’s probably going to be more of this coming in the next few weeks.
Rebates on the 60D and 7D are coming February 20, 2011 in the United States and run through until March 20, 2011.
60D will get a $100 instant rebate.
7D will get a $200 instant rebate.
Both deals will apply to kits as well. No word on rebates for the rest of the planet.
