UPDATED (CONFIRMED FAKE): Lots of Questions About the Alleged PowerShot G7 X Mark III Images

By Canon Rumors | January 20, 2018 | Canon PowerShot

*UPDATE* I think we can file these images under the “fake” category without any doubt. Rumors.camera (via PetaPixel) has uncovered where the photos on the LCD screen of the camera came from.

It looks like Unsplash strikes again as both images on the rear of the camera come from the site. You can see each image below as well as on Unsplash here and here.

You’ll also notice on the wing of the plane that a KLM logo is easily visible and no manufacturer would put someone else’s logo in a promotional shot. The image is also shot on a Panasonic DMC-GX85.

It the future, it looks like I will have to dig a little deeper before I post leaked images from new sources. This is no slight to Photo Rumors or anyone else that believed or wanted to believe that these photos were real. It is the best faked image we may have ever seen.

Thanks to all the sleuths out there who did the dirty work in figuring all of this out.

We also confirmed that there will be no PowerShot G7 X Mark III coming ahead of CP+, but that there will be a new G series camera later on in 2018.

What I will add is that I haven’t seen this level of excitement for a Canon camera, not just a compact in a long, long time.

Aurora Aperture Introduces World’s First Variable GND Filter Family

By Canon Rumors | January 19, 2018 | Canon Business General

Irvine, California, January 15th, 2018 – Aurora Aperture Inc., a Southern California company specialized in photography filters, today has introduced the world’s first variable graduated neutral density (GND) filter family, the Aurora PowerGXND.

The PowerGXND family is an hard transition GND filter with a continuous range up to 5 stops (ND 0 – 1.5). GND filters are widely used in photography and videography for balancing a high contrast scene for proper exposure.

“The Aurora PowerGXND family is the world’s first variable GND filter,” said Jeff Chen, founder and CEO of Aurora Aperture Inc. “offering a wide range of light balancing capability for both photographers and videographers. Until now users need to carry multiple fixed stop GND filters with light reduction values of one, two, and three stop with no fractional stop value. With our variable GND filters, all you need is one filter and just rotate the filter until you see the desired result, it is truly that easy.”

Canon Sends Invitation to Dealers for Major Mirrorless Presentation Next Month

Canon Sends Invitation to Dealers for Major Mirrorless Presentation Next Month

By Canon Rumors | January 19, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’ve been told that Canon is sending out “very elaborate” invites to select dealers and VIPs for a mirrorless camera announcement next month.

The invitation was described as being very high end, printed on heavy glossy paper and showing a silhouette of a camera shaped like the EOS M6 with a hole cut out where the sensor would be.

Apparently only CEOs and higher-ups are allowed to go to the presentation, no sales people are permitted.

I would say all of this would point to Canon announcing something more than just another entry level APS-C shooter.

If anyone has a picture of the invite, please send it to us.

Will The Next Mirrorless Camera From Canon Have 4K Video? [CR1]

Will The Next Mirrorless Camera From Canon Have 4K Video? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | January 18, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We have confirmed that a mirrorless camera will be announced next month ahead of CP+ show which begins on March 1, 2018.

While we cannot confirm the “EOS M50” moniker is the camera coming next month, that’s the logical assumption based on past information.

We’re told by a completely unknown source that the next mirrorless camera will shoot 4K video. I was wondering what could possibly differentiate another APS-C mirrorless shooter from the current offerings, and this is certainly one way to do so.

I urge you to take this as a [CR1] rumor until we can confirm some specifications for the upcoming new mirrorless camera.
