IBIS is coming to select next generation Canon DSLRs [CR2]

IBIS is coming to select next generation Canon DSLRs [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | July 18, 2019 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Last week we reported about a patent showing IBIS in a DSLR. We’ve known for quite some time that IBIS was coming to the next EOS R cameras, but that was the first indication that IBIS was also being developed for DSLRs. As always, just because something appears in a patent, doesn’t automatically mean it’ll appear in a released product.

We have been told that Canon will “definitely” bring IBIS to “select” DSLRs in the near future. The source wasn’t sure which camera(s) would be getting IBIS, but the EOS 90D, which is coming in the next couple of months would be a good bet, especially if the EOS 90D is in fact replacing both the EOS 80D and EOS 7D Mark II.

The other upcoming DSLR that should probably get IBIS is the EOS-1D X Mark III, a camera we expect to hear more about in the first half of 2020. Nikon is rumoured to be adding IBIS to the upcoming D6.

Canon’s profit likely to slide 40% on European slowdown

Canon’s profit likely to slide 40% on European slowdown

By Canon Rumors | July 18, 2019 | Canon Business General

NIKKEI Asian Review – TOKYO — Canon‘s operating profit is on track to sink 40% this year to slightly over 200 billion yen ($1.85 billion), Nikkei has learned, amid a slowing European economy and slumping chip market.

The Japanese company’s profit for the year ending in December is seen falling roughly 60 billion yen short of its downgraded guidance in April. Sales likely will shrink 6% to a figure above 3.7 trillion yen, off about 100 billion yen from April’s forecast. The full-year projections are expected to be lowered again when Canon presents first-half earnings next week.

Worsening economic conditions in Europe have caused corporate clients to hold off on investments, softening sales of office equipment and other machinery. The depreciation of the euro against the yen also undercut profitability in exports. Read the full story at Nikkei Asian Review

Patent: IBIS appears in a Canon DSLR for the first time

Patent: IBIS appears in a Canon DSLR for the first time

By Canon Rumors | July 11, 2019 | Canon Patents

A new Canon patent for in-body image stabilization has appeared, and it looks like it is being worked on for DSLRs as well. This is the first time we’ve seen evidence of IBIS appearing in a mirror slapper.

Northlight says this patent deals with compositional issues and vignetting that could arise when the sensor moves for stability.

Could we see this in an upcoming DSLR? I think that would be a good thing for the EOS lineup, perhaps we’ll see it in the upcoming EOS 90D or EOS-1D X Mark III.

Patent: Canon working on lens cap technology!

Patent: Canon working on lens cap technology!

By Canon Rumors | July 11, 2019 | Canon Patents

A patent showing a new type of lens cap/lens hood that stays affixed to the lens has appeared from Canon as been uncovered by Canon News.

This lens cap design stays attached to the lens and also doubles as a lens hood for convenience.

This design may have some usability concerns with dedicated lens hoods and filters, but could still be the right solution for some people.

From Japan Patent Application 2019-113645:

The present invention works as a lens hood function at the time of shooting and as a lens protection function at the time of non-shooting, thus eliminating the need for lens cap attachment / removal and barrier opening / closing operations. .
