Kickstarter: GearEye – The Ultimate Gear Management System

Kickstarter: GearEye – The Ultimate Gear Management System

By Canon Rumors | November 28, 2016 | Ad Post

I’ll be honest, I very rarely get excited about a product on Kickstarter, which is why it’s very rare to see us promoting any of the campaigns. However, this one is pretty cool.

What is Gear Eye?

GearEye is a smart gear management system for on-the-go professionals. It enables you to manage your equipment through thick and thin: organization, tracking, and making sure you always have everything you need whether at home or on the job. GearEye is a game-changer for anything from the smallest messenger bag to the largest camera suitcase.

No New 50mm Lens Coming in 2017 [CR2]

No New 50mm Lens Coming in 2017 [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | November 23, 2016 | Canon Lens Rumors

Sometimes no news is bad news.

We’re told that Canon is developing a new 50L and working with different apertures, but that no announcement of a new 50L should be expected in 2017. The Canon world is waiting impatiently for a new 50 f/1.4 or a new 50 f/1.2L, but it looks like we’ll be waiting a long while longer.

We haven’t nailed down when the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM is going to be announced during the year, but we do wonder if the new lens will lead to a new 50mm f/1.2L and a new 135 f/2L IS?

One interesting bit of information we’ve heard about a new 50mm lens is that Canon is testing an f/1.0 design, which would be quite the followup to the original “classic”. We haven’t seen any patents for such optical formulas yet, but we may over the next year.

We’re expecting 4-5 lens to be announced by Canon next year, starting with the new EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM (woo!).
