Canon PowerShot Announcements February 7, 2012 [CR2]

Canon PowerShot Announcements February 7, 2012 [CR2]

Lots coming
A lot of new PowerShots are coming next week according to one source. Below are the confirmed models.

  • A2300
  • A2400
  • A3400
  • A4000
  • A810
  • D20
  • Elph 320
  • SX240

I did receive other models in the list that already existed, so I removed them. The camera of note in the list is the PowerShot D20. I’d assume that’s a followup for the waterproof oddity that was the D10.

5D Mark III (or other) Followup

Follow-up form Stephen Oachs
Mr. Oachs has posted a followup post to yesterday’s images of the new 200-400 and an unidentified camera. He’s also posted a RAW for those that believe the image was altered in any way.

22mp perfect for 3×3 oversampling?
Below is a direct quote about the reported 22mp resolution

I have no insider information, but just wanted to point that 22 MP has some “magical” properties for HD video, as it corresponds exactly to a 3×3 oversampling of the final video resolution. (22 MP, minus crop for 16:9 ratio, divided by 9, equal 1080×1920)

The next “magical” resolution (4×4 oversamping) is at 39 MP.

CPS Event in Yokohama?
I’m told there is a CPS event in Yokohama, Japan at CP+. Those usually lead to some kind of announcement.

5D Mark III Sooner Than Later [CR2]

5D Mark III Sooner Than Later [CR2]

5D Mark III Announcement
Barring another manufacturing problem in Asia, count on the 5D Mark III being announced around the end of March or early April 2012.

Availability will probably happen before the summer begins in 2012. No specs were given at this time. This is a very solid [CR2]

The NAB show is April 14-19 in Las Vegas.

Sigma Announcing New Stuff on January 10, 2012

Sigma will be announcing new photographic products on January 10, 2012 according to their web site.

Pre CES Announcements

Pre CES Announcements

Anything before CES?
There could be a few products announced before CES.

PowerShot
I’m told there will be a PowerShot announcement, however nothing specific has been mentioned.

Lenses
We’ve been told the 24-70 II and 35 f/1.4 II will finally be announced. The 24-70 II announcement has existed pretty much as long as this site has. I really want it announced so I can stop reading emails about it. I offer no opinion on the likelihood of such an announcement.

Possible evidence of a EF 24-70 f/2.8L II can be seen here, here & here.

The EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x could also be officially announced. However, that may not happen until the new 500 & 600 start to ship.

Cameras?
The only camera that is possible would be a Rebel, though I’ve received zero information one being announced in early January.

Nikon?
Nikon is rumoured to be announcing the D4 & new 85 f/1.8 on  January 6, 2012.

Will Canon let Nikon have all the thunder at CES/PMA?

New Lens on December 6, 2011? [CR1]

New Lens on December 6, 2011? [CR1]

New Lens(es)?
Are we getting a goodie before Christmas?

Received an email today saying Canon may announce a new lens on or around December 6, 2011.

This could just be in retaliation of the suspected Nikon announcements on November 30, 2011. No mention of what lens, which lowers the possibility in my eyes.

I can only think of one time a lens was announced and I had heard absolutely nothing about it, and that was the 55-250 II.

New APS-C Camera in February?

New APS-C Camera in February?

APS-C Before Full Frame?
Received word today, that the next planned DSLR announcement from Canon will be in February 2012. It’s a loose date and could happen at the end of January as well. The floods in Thailand are messing with parts availability.

It will most likely be a camera using the current 18mp sensor, with some modifications. Expect DIGIC V as well.

Lenses?
I’m told from the same person we’ll see a lens announcement before the next DSLR. No word on what.

Next “G”?
Again, the same person is saying the next “G” series camera will be a departure from what we have now.

Live Coverage of the Announcement

Two Red Dot Cameras?
People are commenting on the red dot on the C300 image below, but it also appears on the EOS DSLR camera in the image. No idea what’s up with that for the moment.

ISO Performance #3
A Sam Nicholson film is showing, and the noise from the previous film isn’t showing in this one.

ISO Performance #2
The 2nd short film they’re showing is noticeably noisier.

Breathtaking ISO Performance
Filmmakers and the audience are commenting about how clean, sharp and beautiful the example short films are. The lowlight performance may be revolutionary.

Canon EOS C300
It looks like 3 new compact primes and 2 zoom lenses. Can be mounted on the new Cinema EOS camera as well as Canon EOS DSLRs. 


 


 

 

14:44 I’m told (@GoForJared) the new camera is called the EOS C 300, and not the previously reported EOS 300C.

Live from Hollywood
A few places on the web will be doing some live blogging of the event in Hollywood.

Mitch @ Planet5D is there.

Engadget will also be there.
