Canon to Update Irista Service Later This Month

By Canon Rumors | November 17, 2015 | Canon Software

From the Irista team

We’ve had lots of feedback about irista, and later this month we’ll bring some big improvements:

  • Faster: Adding new photos to irista will be much quicker.
  • Easier: Zooming through time will be more fun, with our simpler design.
  • Better organised: Duplicate photos you add will be automatically removed and your photos will always be displayed by the date taken.
  • Mobile: Free up space on your phone by automatically saving all your phone’s photos to irista with our iOS and Android apps.
  • Shared: Easily create and share collections with friends, whether they use irista or not.

There’s a sneak peek of the new version here at http://preview.irista.com. And some answers to questions here.

Touchscreen Coming to EOS 5D Mark IV? [CR1]

Touchscreen Coming to EOS 5D Mark IV? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | November 16, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told that there’s a good possibility that one of Canon’s professional cameras will get a tilting touchscreen LCD. We don’t think such a thing would appear on the EOS-1D X Mark II, but could find a home on the EOS 5D Mark IV. Both the tilting and touchscreen LCD features are asked for by a lot of Canon shooters.

The EOS 5D Mark IV isn’t going to be an incremental update, so expect lots of new technology added to the nameplate.

This comes from a new source.

New EF-S Lenses on the Horizon? [CR2]

New EF-S Lenses on the Horizon? [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | November 16, 2015 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told that new “prosumer” EF-S lenses will be introduced in early 2016, and at least one current lens may be replaced. We think the most likely lenses for replacement would be the EF-S 10-22 f/3.5-4.5 or the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS.

We weren’t told which lenses would be coming, only that Canon remains committed to EF-S, which is something Canon has said themselves.

Lots of EOS 70D Replacement Talk

Lots of EOS 70D Replacement Talk

By Canon Rumors | November 15, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’ve been inundated over the last couple of days with claims of an EOS 70D replacement on the near horizon. If such a camera is imminent, we imagine an announcement for CES in January 2016 would be appropriate.

For the moment, we don’t put a lot of stock in the current stream of rumors published here [CR1] and elsewhere. The various “sources” appear to be the same person(s).

For the moment, we think the next DSLR from Canon will be the EOS-1D X Mark II, followed within 6 months by the EOS 5D Mark III replacement.

We haven’t heard anything concrete from known sources about a new APS-C camera, both the EOS Rebel SL1 and EOS 70D are due for a replacement, but we haven’t heard anything about an EOS Rebel SL2 in quite some time.

I will add that a known source has suggested that the EOS 7D Mark II will be the last of the “pro” APS-C cameras from Canon, take that for what its worth.

Gura Gear is Now Tamrac G-Elite

Gura Gear is Now Tamrac G-Elite

By Canon Rumors | November 14, 2015 | Industry News | Third Party Accessories

Gura Gear has made my favourite travel backpack for as long as I can remember, so I’m not sure how I feel about this, I was never a fan of Tamrac’s products. I’ve always appreciated the small and focused product range that Gura Gear provided. The Bataflae bags are also the best made travel packs I’ve ever used and abused.

If you remember, Tamrac went bankrupt and Gura Gear acquired the long standing camera bag brand and all of its assets.

The new Tamrac G Elite G26 (26L) and G32 (32L) are now available for preorder.

From Tamrac:

One Brand. One Vision. One Message.

We’ve always had one vision; to carry your photography dreams to the ends of the Earth.  Gura Gear developed a bit of a reputation for camera bags that are durable, beautiful, functional, and capable of traveling anywhere and everywhere.

We aren’t interested in resting on our reputation, so to grow and spread our ideas to a wider audience, we bought Tamrac. A brand with a nearly 40 year heritage and a global network. Now, we’ve taken the best of Gura Gear, injected it into the all new TAMRAC and would like to welcome you to the TAMRAC family.
