New Flash System in the Works [CR1]

New Flash System in the Works [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | May 4, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told that Canon is working on a new flash system based around a new metering technology, which could possibly be E-TTL III.

The source said Canon is well aware they lag behind Nikon in flash metering technology and are “actively working on improving their own system, rather than making new E-TTL II flashes”.

This new technology could appear in 2016 in a new flagship Speedlite.

B&H Photo recently came into possession of the Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM, this is the third time the used department at B&H has had this lens for sale. It’s rumored that less than 20 of these lenses were ever built, although Canon won’t confirm the production number.

If you’re in New York City, be sure to head to B&H Photo and check it out.

Imaging Resources Investigates T6s/T6i Sensor Anomalies

Imaging Resources Investigates T6s/T6i Sensor Anomalies

By Canon Rumors | May 1, 2015 | Canon DSLR News

Imaging Resource has done some tests to measure the image quality that comes from “sensor fleck” affected Canon EOS Rebel T6s & Rebel T6i cameras that was first reported by LensRentals.com. A brief follow-up from LensRentals.com states that Canon is taking the issue very seriously and we should hear some kind of an official statement from Canon soon.

As far as image quality issues with affected units, Imaging Resource had this to say:

The good news is that (a) the actual impact on photos is pretty small, and even then is limited to shots captured with very small apertures; and (b) it’s quite easy to tell whether any given camera has flecks or not. I’d personally be comfortable buying either of these models myself, and either exchanging it with the retailer if it proved to have flecks, or waiting for what I expect will be an eventual repair program from Canon to deal with the issue. (Note that we have absolutely no direct information from Canon on this; this is just personal opinion at this point.)

EOS-1D X Mark II Dynamic Range [CR2]

EOS-1D X Mark II Dynamic Range [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | May 1, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Beyond the increased ISO capabilities of the EOS-1D X Mark II, we’re told that dynamic range is going to see a massive improvement, and possibly have the most stops of any DSLR currently on the market. It’s always possible that Sony will do something in the meantime with their new sensors to increase their lead in stops of DR.

It’s also sounding like a new DIGIC 7 processor will make its way into the EOS-1D X Mark II, instead of going with the DIGIC 6 processor that was introduced in 2013. The current EOS-1D X uses dual DIGIC 5+ processors.
