Canon has released firmware updates for 5 DSLRs, with more updates on the way.

Corrects a phenomenon in which when using the camera with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM or EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens, even if lens aberration correction is set to “Enable”, correction will not be applied.

A few patents showing optical formula for lenses with 1″ sensors have come to light. We expect to see some PowerShot cameras announced ahead of CES 2017 in January.

We haven’t received word on which PowerShot cameras will see a replacement announced, but we think at least one “G” camera will see an update.

The patents are after the break.

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Talk [CR1]

Canon EOS 6D Mark II Talk [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | September 27, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

There has been a bit of chatter since the EOS 5D Mark IV announcement about the upcoming Canon EOS 6D Mark II. We’re told to expect the camera in the first half of 2017, with CP+ in February being a strong possibility for an announcement. We’re told the new camera is going to be 25mp (prototypes exist), have an articulating screen, dual SD card slots and shoot some form of 4K. I’d assume DPAF is also going to be included in the camera. Also expect some weight savings and a slightly smaller size.

This is [CR1], so treat it accordingly.
