Canon Mirrorless [CR1]

Canon Mirrorless [CR1]

Canon Mirrorless next week?
I received an email this AM stating that Canon will announce the Canon QL-D1 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.

There were no specs or any other information given.

CR’s Take
This is the first mirrorless information I have been given in months. If there’s an announcement coming next week, I can’t see this being all that gets sent my way.

The model name given is nostalgic and creative.

“QL” was used by the Canonet, a film rangefinder that didn’t have interchangeable lenses.
*UPDATE* A reader wrote in and gave me a bit of a history lesson (I love em). “QL” actually stood for Quick Load. As in how film was loaded into the camera. There was also an FT-QL SLR. Thanks!

“D1″ is a model used by Epson with their digital rangefinder the R-D1 and RD1x.

So while a creative little bit of information, I am going to say it’s highly unlikely. It would be so great if it were true.
