New PowerShots for CP+
The next photo gear show is CP+ in Tokyo, which runs from January 31 until February 3, 2013. We’re probably only going to see new PowerShots announced from Canon.
- IXUS 610
- IXUS 110
- IXUS 90F
Not really the excitement we were hoping for, although it was expected.
The could announce the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x officially too, which we’d all really like so we can stop talking about it.
A lot of new PowerShots are coming next week according to one source. Below are the confirmed models.
- Elph 320
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.
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.
February 9, 2011
A few people have suggested Canon will announce more products on February 9, 2011. The opening day of CP+.
If they do, I expect some printers. No word on any more cameras.
This is third party hearsay.
CP+ In Japan February 9, 10, 11
I’m told beyond a bunch of PowerShot cameras, we will see at least 1 DSLR announced for CP+.
Sadly, it won’t be a 5D Mark III, 1Ds Mark IV or 7D Mark II. I’ll have more on the next 5D series camera soon.
The likely candidate(s) will be new Rebels.
There won’t be any video stuff, only still camera goods announced at the show.
There was an mention of a new flash recently.
NAB 2011 – Las Vegas April 9-14
I will be off to Las Vegas to attend the NAB show. Meet up with the hdslr guys/gals and learn as much as I can about the video world.
The obvious next Rebel is starting to pick up steam. Will we see it for CP+ in February? I’ve been told countless times by good people there will be NO SLRs introduced for CES on January 6.
The following are listed as the changes to the 550D. It looks like a very incremental upgrade.
- Articulating screen like the 60D
- 9 Point AF
- Increased shutter range in Auto ISO Mode
- Video Snapshot Mode
- ISO 100-12800
- DIGIC IV
- New software features for still and video
I can definitely see the 600D being a minor advancement.
- HD Video (Probably less feature filled than the 600D)
- 9 Point AF
- ISO 100-6400
A new kit lens and flash were also mentioned.
I’ve previously been told there’d be no direct replacement of the 1000D, this contradicts that and I think is a bit more believable.
