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.

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?
