Real World Image Samples from Rebel T6s & T6i

Real World Image Samples from Rebel T6s & T6i

By Canon Rumors | May 19, 2015 | Canon DSLR News

Canon’s latest Rebels didn’t launch without issue, as a select number of the first batch of cameras needed a service advisory. Now that Canon has taken care of that, these feature rich entry level DSLRs from Canon are showing some good promise.

DPReview has posted a gallery of real world images from the EOS Rebel T6s (760D) and EOS Rebel T6i (750D), the images look pretty impressive to me.

EOS 5D Mark IV Testing Has Begun [CR2]

EOS 5D Mark IV Testing Has Begun [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | May 19, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

We’re told test bodies for the EOS 5D Mark IV have made their way to select photographers. The timeline for an announcement is still some time in Q4 of 2015.

While there has been talk about a new DIGIC processor for the EOS-1D X Mark II, it is unknown if the EOS 5D Mark IV will see the rumored DIGIC 7 processor as well. If it doesn’t, one can assume that the EOS-1D X Mark II won’t come soon after the EOS 5D Mark IV and will likely fall into the winter of 2016, with availability coming soon after.

2016 is an Olympic & Euro year, with the summer games being held in August and Euro beginning in June. 2016 is a Photokina year as well, which comes in September.

More to come…

 

Canon Working on Professional Underwater Camera? [CR1]

Canon Working on Professional Underwater Camera? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | May 18, 2015 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Is Canon working on a higher end and more professional underwater camera?

We’re told that Canon is working on an underwater camera for serious divers, a camera that would not require an underwater housing and far superior to any of the point and shoot options out there. Canon has said that they’re going to start making cameras that are need based, instead of the do-it-all cameras of the past.

Take this with a huge grain of salt, but the concept is interesting.

New EF f/2.8 Wide Angle Zoom in the Works [CR1]

New EF f/2.8 Wide Angle Zoom in the Works [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | May 18, 2015 | Canon Cinema Lens Rumors

This is the second time in the last month or so that we’ve been told that a new wide angle f/2.8 zoom was in the works. The obvious lens for replacement would be for the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II. which was released in 2007. Fast wide angle zooms are still required by a lot of event photographers as well as people that want to use something lighter, cheaper and easier to use than the EF 11-24 f/4L.

I think it’s possible that the focal length range changes, even if only slightly.

Such an update will not come before the release of Canon’s next L prime, which most people expect to be the EF 35mm f/1.4L II.

Sigma Tripod Socket TS-81 Availability Announced

Sigma Tripod Socket TS-81 Availability Announced

By Canon Rumors | May 15, 2015 | Third Party Lenses

This is not an announcement of a new product, Sigma is just letting us know that the Arca compatible foot for the Sigma 150-600 f/5-6.3 OS Sport is now available and retailers should have it soon.

From Sigma:

We are pleased to announce the availability of TRIPOD SOCKET TS-81 that is the optional lens foot which can be attached to the SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports. It is compatible with the Arca Swiss quick release plate and the clamp. The deliberately designed length of its rail provides the flexibility to adjust the center of gravity making it balance perfectly, even while zooming or using accessories, such as a tele converter and battery pack. Consideration has been given to the portability and transportation of the lens when Tripod Socket TS-81 is attached. The lens hood can still be reversed and the lens stored in its original padded case, even with the Tripod Socket TS-81 attached. Incorporated into the Tripod Socket are safety stopper screws to prevent the lens from falling. There are 2 sizes of screw holes, 1/4 and 3/8, making it compatible with tripods other than Arca Swiss, too. When it is compared to the supplied tripod socket, it offers more space between the lens and device, and the change of grip has improved the usage as a handle for carrying.
