Review: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II

Review: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II

By Canon Rumors | July 20, 2016 | Canon Reviews

I’ll lead by saying that I absolutely love my Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II, I replaced a Sony RX100 III with it and couldn’t be happier. DPReview has now completed their review of the latest G series PowerShot and came away impressed, as it’s a significant improvement over the original PowerShot G7 X.

From DPReview:

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the PowerShot G7 X Mark II is that Canon listened to its customers (and maybe some camera reviewers) and dealt with a large number of the problems that people had with its predecessor. Whether it’s something cosmetic like the new grip or noticeably better burst shooting, the G7 X II is what the original should’ve been back in 2014. Read the full review

Crazy Patent: Canon EF 40-800mm f/4.5-5.6

Crazy Patent: Canon EF 40-800mm f/4.5-5.6

By Canon Rumors | July 20, 2016 | Canon Patents

Here’s a crazy optical formula patent from Canon, an EF 40-800mm f/4.5-5.6 superzoom lens. The folks at Egami say it’s for a full frame DSLR and is an internal zoom lens.

Patent Publication No. 2016-128846 (Google Translated)

  • Published 2016.7.14
  • Filing date 2015.1.9
  • Zoom ratio 19.42
  • Focal length 41.09 92.80 152.20 225.00 797.99
  • F-number 4.67 4.66 4.65 4.67 5.71
  • Angle of view 27.79 13.13 8.10 5.50 1.55
  • Image height 21.65
  • Overall length of the lens 489.32
  • BF 39.28
  • Inner zoom

As pointed out on our forum, the patent contains 4 lens designs, two of them are for full frame, and two are for a PowerShot application. The likelihood of such a lens coming to fruition in full frame form? I’d say zero chance, but stranger things have happened.

A Canon DSLR First Coming to EOS 5D Mark IV [CR2]

A Canon DSLR First Coming to EOS 5D Mark IV [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | July 19, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

The teasing of features and information has started ahead of the August announcement of the EOS 5D Mark IV from Canon.

We’re told that the new camera will have a DSLR first from Canon, but the source was unsure if any other manufacturer has or will have the same feature in one of their cameras. While we’re told that the feature “isn’t major”, it is something “a lot of shooters will be happy to have”.

We expect a lot more information over the next few weeks, and we’re working hard daily trying to get some new bits of information.

What sort of “DSLR first” feature do you want to see in a Canon DSLR?
