We were alerted to the fact that Canon USA has removed the EOS M camera from their web site. They still list two of the 3 EOS M lenses, but there doesn’t appear to be any reference at all to the EOS M camera.
Are we going to see a mirrorless from Canon back in North America? At this point, I wouldn’t think so. Unless they completely revamp the product concept, it seems to be a lame duck system for Canon shooters.
There’s the possibility we see an EF based mirrorless system, maybe an even smaller SL1 style DSLR. I love the SL1 and I think removing the prism and introducing a few more pancake style lenses with an EF mount would be welcomed. I’m speculating, as I haven’t heard anything to actually support such a concept.
Or maybe Canon is going to concentrate on the prosumer level of cameras and lenses, as that appears to be where the money is for companies in this industry at this time.
Amazon is currently offering instant discounts on select Canon APS-C DSLRs. Some of the savings are as much as $200.

Below is what we’re likely to see Canon announce next week for CP+ in Tokyo, Japan. Canon generally treats this show as a consumer show, so we won’t see anything on the prosumer DSLR side.
- New DSLR, most likely a Rebel below the EOS SL1.
- Canon G1 X Replacement. This camera will be slimmer, it will lose the optical viewfinder and the lens is most likely 24-120 f/2-3.9. As I’ve said before, it will be a fair bit of money. I’d say around $700.
- Canon PowerShot SX280 IS. A new compact large zoom compact.
- We’ll also see a few other PowerShot cameras announced.
These announcements will come on Wednesday, February 12, 2014.
Isn’t she pretty?
Below are some images of the new Canon EOS X7 in white. I personally would like a white 40mm f/2.8 STM!
All the specs of the camera are the same, we’re just talking a new paint job here.

Teaser speculation confirmed
The recent teasers from Canon Korea and Canon Japan have shown what many suspected to be a white colored Rebel of some kind. It’s now being confirmed that it will actually be a white Canon EOS Rebel SL1/X7.
- White gloss finish
- Same specs as the Canon EOS SL1/Kiss X7
- EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens option
- EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake in white lens option
Enjoy your new paint job.
From Canon Japan’s Facebook
Canon Japan is now teasing us with a little promo called “White Kiss”. As you probably know, Rebel level cameras in Japan are called “Kiss”. So this is another sign that Canon will be launching a white Rebel of some kind. We’re not sure if this will be a global product, or just in select countries.

Below is a link to the Canon Korea site showing a teaser for a new camera body.

It looks to be a camera the same size as the Canon EOS SL1, perhaps an entry level version of the camera to replace the 1100D? Or maybe just a white version of the SL1? Whatever it is, I wouldn’t get too worked up about it. It won’t be a cool full frame mini camera, or a $1000 1D X replacement.

Two people have written in to tell me that the April 23, 2013 date is not for the EOS 70D. With it being a week away, I tend to agree.
The next EOS
The next DSLR Canon is going to announce is the EOS 70D, we’re trying to confirm if it will come on April 23, 2013 as previously reported. Below is a spec list put together from various sources that have written in. All of it seems plausible and almost expected.
What to expect from the EOS 70D.
- 18mp Sensor (Same as SL1)
- DIGIC V (no one has said it will get DIGIC 6)
- SD Card
- 3.2″ Touchscreen LCD (No mention of swivel)
- Magnesium Alloy Construction
- Slightly larger than the EOS 60D
- $1199 USD Body Only
We’re told a lens will be announced with the EOS 70D, but we haven’t heen told what it will be.
