Canon Italy Responds to Social Media Composite Photograph Backlash

Canon Italy Responds to Social Media Composite Photograph Backlash

By Canon Rumors | January 13, 2018 | Canon Business General

Canon Italy has officially responded to the backlash from an FStoppers story over a composite photograph that they posted to social media this week.

From Fuji Addict:

Ciao a tutti! Grazie mille per i vostri commenti sul nostro post e per aver condiviso le vostre considerazioni! Abbiamo preso questa immagine dal sito web https://unsplash.com/, dedicato alla fotografia senza copyright.
L’immagine è stata scattata dal fotografo @gregpaulmiller con una Canon EOS-1D Mark IV, con le seguenti impostazioni: ISO 100, f/6.3, tempo di posa 2 sec. secondo il sito web Unsplash.com. Vediamo la somiglianza con lo scatto di Elia Locardi, tuttavia le immagini hanno varie differenze identificabili tra cui cambiamenti stagionali ed elementi aggiuntivi, come la gente che cammina o si siede sulle sponde del fiume.
Cerchiamo sempre di coinvolgere la nostra community quando mettiamo in evidenza i contenuti generati dagli utenti e con la pubblicazione di questa foto speriamo comunque di aver ispirato altri a scattare foto straordinarie.

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for your comments on our post and flagging your concerns! We’ve taken this image from a website, https://unsplash.com/ dedicated to copyright-free photography. The image was taken by photographer @gregpaulmiller on a Canon EOS-1D Mark IV, with the following settings: ISO 100, f/6.3, shutter speed 2 seconds according to the website Unsplash.com. We do see the similarity with the image taken by Elia Locardi, though, the images have various identifiable differences including seasonal changes and additional elements like the people walking or sitting on the sides of the banks.
We always try to inspire our community when highlighting user generated content and hope that by posting this photo we have inspired others to take amazing pictures as well.

We don’t support their position. Canon Italy messed up and should just own up to their mistake and make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Canon Concept Cameras Brought to CES 2018

Canon Concept Cameras Brought to CES 2018

By Canon Rumors | January 12, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Canon didn’t announce any consumer cameras at CES 2018 this year, but they did bring a couple of concept cameras that did impress the folks at The Verge.

The first camera is a small brick shaped device with a flip out lightning port that would allow it to be attached to an iPhone. You could use the screen on your iPhone as viewfinder and likely be able to transfer images to your phone. The camera also pivots. One of the unique features of this concept, is it has a 100-400mm lens. This camera would also come with an detachable viewfinder so the photographer could shoot with it using their eyes.

The second camera is concept that is in working form. It’s shaped like the Samsung Gear 360 and is a single lens unit that can swivel 360 degrees. The point of the camera is to focus and film faces and objects in nearly all directions.

Both cameras seem to borrow from products that already exist

We’re Not Convinced an EOS 7D Mark III is Coming in 2018

We’re Not Convinced an EOS 7D Mark III is Coming in 2018

By Canon Rumors | January 11, 2018 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We sent this information out last week in our newsletter and we haven’t received any further clarity about the Canon EOS 7D Mark III.

There has been a lot of unfocused chatter about an EOS 7D Mark III recently, and in my experience, that’s not a good thing.

Our best source is telling us that they haven’t heard anything about an update to Canon’s flagship APS-C camera. That doesn’t mean one isn’t coming in 2018, but the earliest it would be coming is Q4 of 2018, and not the rumored first half of 2018 that we’ve been told previously and others keep reporting.

There’a always a possibility that Canon is changing the way they launch popular flagship products to try and make it harder for sites like this to leak information. Although I don’t think that highly of myself or that I would wield that much influence over Canon Inc.

We’ll keep you updated and we will resist posting about the EOS 7D Mark III until we get a better feeling about what is true and what isn’t.
