MELVILLE, N.Y., August 25, 2016 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today the new Canon EOS 7D Mark II Kit, featuring the new SD card-sized Wi-Fi® Adapter W-E1. This new Wi-Fi adapter, when placed in one of the camera’s SD card slots, provides the EOS 7D Mark II with Wi-Fi capabilitiesi like easy transferring of images and MP4 videos as well as use of the Canon Camera Connect App for remote capture of still images via a compatible smartphone or tablet.ii

The Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 will be sold with the EOS 7D Mark II body as well as sold separately, and can also be used with the EOS 5DS and 5DS R as well as previously purchased EOS 7D Mark II camerasiii. When used with EOS 5DS and 5DS R cameras, the Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 functionality is limited to the transfer of still images only. The W-E1 will support 802.11 b, g and n using the 2.4 GHz band.

Additionally, for the first time the EOS 7D Mark II camera will be conveniently bundled with the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens.

Further Confirmation of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Launch Prices

Further Confirmation of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Launch Prices

By Canon Rumors | August 24, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Further confirmation of pricing of the EOS 5D Mark IV has come ahead of tomorrow’s announcement of all the new products.

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV: $3499 USD | $4299 CAD | €3700 EUR

The USA price is the exact same price that the EOS 5D Mark III launched at. Both the Canadian and European prices are significantly higher due to currency changes we assume.

The good news is shipping will begin within a few weeks of the announcement.

Patent: Tamron 115mm f/1.4 VC

Patent: Tamron 115mm f/1.4 VC

By Canon Rumors | August 23, 2016 | Third Party Lenses

It seems to be a never-ending parade of optical formula patents from Tamron, this time it’s a 115mm f/1.4 VC. This is another fast and unique lens concept from Tamron.

Patent Publication No. 2016-151661 (Google Translated)

  • Published 2016.8.22
  • Filing date 2015.2.17
  • f = 113.000
  • Fno = 1.456
  • ω = 10.632
  • Tamron patent
  • Positive and negative positive
  • Inner focus (the second group)
  • Vibration proof group (one of the group)

Announcements from Tamron ahead of Photokina should be coming any day now. I suspect most will wait until after the EOS 5D Mark IV announcement and chatter has cooled down.
