Live Coverage of the Announcement

Two Red Dot Cameras?
People are commenting on the red dot on the C300 image below, but it also appears on the EOS DSLR camera in the image. No idea what’s up with that for the moment.

ISO Performance #3
A Sam Nicholson film is showing, and the noise from the previous film isn’t showing in this one.

November 3, 2011 Announcement

November 3, 2011 Announcement

Almost there!
The “historical” announcement is a day away. We have heard nothing else in regards to what’s coming.

Canon didn’t send me an invite after I asked for one, I think they had a good laugh at my request judging by the smiley faces in the email.

Expectations?
I expect a Super35 4K capable camera with PL and EF mount options. 2 to 3 lenses are also expected.

CR’s Take
There will be no DSLR announcement on November 3, 2011. This is a video only announcement. However, there could be “EF” and “EOS” branding involved.

I was told Vincent Laforet has been shooting promo material with the new camera in the Los Angeles area. However, he was NOT shooting with a DSLR.

What’s Next?

What’s Next?

That was fun!
The EOS 1D X caught a lot of people off guard, and shows a dynamic shift in Canon’s EOS product line. There are surely some really exciting and more than evolutionary products in the pipeline from Canon.

November 3, 2011 (No Rating)
I’m still pretty convinced that the November 3, 2011 announcement in Hollywood will be in regards to a video camera or two. One of them will NOT be the 5D Mark III.

The basic breakdown of what I’ve been told so far.

  • Possibly 2 cameras
  • EF & PL Mount
  • Super35mm Sensor
  • One could be EOS branded
  • A 30-300 lens.
  • Possibly 3 lenses in total.

I’m told whatever launches may not be a 4K camera, but will become a 4K camera down the line.
