Canon 4K Camera Makes an Appearance

By Canon Rumors | March 26, 2015

The long rumored small 4K camera we’ve been talking about from Canon appears to have shown up in China before its launch for NAB 2015 in Las Vegas next month. This definitely looks to be Canon’s foray into the drone market. Jackie Chan also makes an appearance alongside the new camera. SPECIFICATIONS (Updated in bold) […]

Canon EOS 5DS R First Impressions

Canon EOS 5DS R First Impressions

By Canon Rumors | March 21, 2015 | Canon DSLR News

Imaging Resource has posted sample images and first impressions of the upcoming Canon EOS 5DS R.

When compared to Nikon’s D810, the Canon shows more detail at base ISO, which is what it’s supposed to do. In the noise category, the EOS 5D Mark III has less of it, but the EOS 5DS R shames it by a fair margin in the detail department. The EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R aren’t for low light hand held shooting, but it looks like they’re proving to deliver what they’re supposed to as far as detail goes.

We’re all waiting to see what the real world dynamic range of this new 50.6mp Canon sensor is going to deliver for us.

There’s also comparisons against the Pentax 645Z and Olympus EM-5 II.

Canon and NAB 2015 in April [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | March 20, 2015 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

We’re amended some information we’ve posted previously about what to expect from Canon at NAB 2015 in Las Vegas next month. Nothing below is going to change all that much, other than getting more specifications about the products.


This will be the star of Canon’s show. It will shoot 4K and you can also expect some minor ergonomic changes. We also think that it’s going to cost more than Sony’s FS7.


This is NOT going to be announced at NAB 2015. There’s always the possibility of a development announcement, but don’t expect a product you’re going to be able to purchase soon.


We’ve reported previously about a fixed lens Cinema EOS style camera, as well as Canon announcing a G4H competitor. We’re now pretty certain that these are in fact the same camera. We were wondering why we hadn’t heard anything about the lens mount for a G4H style camera. As it turns out, the lens is fixed and the camera will share the same shape as the Canon EOS C100 II, just smaller. This will be a 4K product and probably geared towards drones, though we don’t now how much “smaller” it will be compared to the EOS C100 Mark II.

Canon Rumors Goes to Scotland

Canon Rumors Goes to Scotland

By Canon Rumors | March 19, 2015 | Canon Rumors General

I’m heading to Scotland Saturday to hang with Andy Biggs and a bunch of other landscape photography nuts for 10 days of shooting the Isles of Skye, Lewis & Harris as well as Cairngorms. This is almost the perfect time to go with the latest lenses Canon has released, especially the EF 11-24 f/4L and EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II. Do I wish an EOS 5DS R was coming with me? Absolutely!

What’s in my bag for this trip?

Why the Zeiss and the 11-24? I’ve shot the Zeiss plenty of times before and until proven otherwise, it’s the best ultra wide angle lens for Canon’s EF mount (apologies to the TS-E 17mm) that I’ve ever used. I will be using the 11-24 a lot as I work away on the review.

As I mentioned earlier, I would love to be taking an EOS 5DS R with me and I almost (GAH!) brought a D810, but the new 11-24 and 100-400 were too good to pass up, not to mention I don’t have a Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 for F mount.

I will also have the pleasure of shooting with a Leica S Type 006 kit on the trip, which should have no trouble fulfilling the desire for more resolution.
