Canon EOS M Vanishes from Canon USA Web Site

Canon EOS M Vanishes from Canon USA Web Site

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.

thanks Tom

What to Expect From Canon For CP+ Next Week

What to Expect From Canon For CP+ Next Week

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.

Canon EOS Rebel SL1/Kiss X7 in White

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.
