PowerShot and EOS
I received a few tidbits of information of coming products for Photokina.
S100 Replacement with Wifi
G12 Replacement that isn’t much different than the current one. Same sensor size as the G12.
A new SX big zoom PowerShot is coming.
A full frame EOS between the 7D and 5D Mark III with touchscreen and 20mp (most mentions have been 22mp)
I’m not 100% sure about a new EOS camera, though there are press events all over the planet next week. Announcing EOS with Pixma and PowerShot has happened before, and Canon could use a splash at Photokina if Nikon does indeed announce their inexpensive fullframe D600.
Stock levels of the 5D Mark II seem to be depleting in various places around the globe as well.
Canon has issued a product advisory on the Canon PowerShot S100
