Patent: Lots of Big White Lens Patent Applications Surface

Patent: Lots of Big White Lens Patent Applications Surface

By Canon Rumors | December 7, 2017 | Canon Patents

New patents for supertelephoto optical formulas have appeared at the USPTO.

The range of formulas is quite vast, all the way from a new EF 300mm f/2.8L IS to a new EF 800mm f/5.6L IS design.

We do think there will be some new “big white” lenses announced in the next 12 months, not including the EF 600mm f/4 DO IS. We’ve heard from at least one person that Canon may take the EF 200mm f/2L IS back to its f/1.8 roots. Though the latter hasn’t yet been confirmed.

Northlight-Images uncovered a lot of the patent applications, you can view them all here over at the USPTO. [12345]

More Cinema EOS C300 Mark III Information [CR0]

More Cinema EOS C300 Mark III Information [CR0]

By Canon Rumors | December 7, 2017 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

*UPDATE* We’re going to downgrade this set of EOS C300 Mark III rumors to [CR0] after getting some confirmation from someone we trust.

Earlier in the week we posted some information about the Canon EOS C300 Mark III that came from unknown places. Yesterday we received more information from the same place. It’s starting to feel like we may be getting trolled.

Anyway, here’s what else we’ve been told is coming in the new camera.

  • 4K Internal 4:4:4
  • 6K RAW
  • Priced above $20,000
  • Newly designed shoulder mount.

Over the years I’ve learned that if a specification list doesn’t feel like it’s something Canon would do, it’s because Canon isn’t going to be doing it. This feels like one of those times.

Take all of this with a huge grain of salt.

Review: Canon EOS M100 by TDP

Review: Canon EOS M100 by TDP

By Canon Rumors | December 5, 2017 | Canon Reviews

Bryan over at The-Digital-Picture has completed his review of Canon’s latest entry level mirrorless camera, the EOS M100.

From TDP:

From an exciting brand-new features perspective, the Canon EOS M100 is going to turn few heads. However, the existing features packaged into this tiny camera combined with a very-attractive price will.

Among the most-attracted to the M100 will be those misled by promises of great image quality from their phones or simply those growing dissatisfied by the same. Once phone images are viewed on a full-sized monitor or otherwise used to create modestly large prints, most will likely be disappointed, discovering that the purported great image quality doesn’t meet their own definition. The large, high resolution APS-C format imaging sensor in the M100 will, especially in low light, far surpass the abilities of any mobile phone in existence. Read the full review

Canon has produced another winning mirrorless camera, now if we only had more lenses to choose from.

Another Canon EF 135mm f/2L IS USM Mention [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | December 5, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’ve received another mention of a Canon EF 135mm f/2L IS USM coming in the first half of 2018, we see the CP+ show in Japan as a good time to announce the lens.

We’re told production of the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS will have to meet global demand before the announcement.

We’re also told that the original non-IS version will remain current for some time after the new lens appears.
