A Canon EVIL?
A new rumor has appeared the web about Canon announcing an EVIL camera.

From DPR
Apparently Canon will unveil soon an EVIL system smaller than m4/3.It’ll be based on the APS-C sensor, apparently same sensor as the 7D, but with a reduced Image Circle, 18mm

– It’ll be based on the APS-C sensor, apparently same sensor as the 7D, but with a reduced Image Circle, 18mm.
– 3 New lenses. Zoom Kit EF-X 12-36mm, 36-166mm and 15mm f2.4 Pancake.
– There will be an adapter to use EF and EF-S lenses.
– 720p 30fps video.
– Articulated LCD

This goes against most of what I’ve been told about a Canon entry into the EVIL category. I’ll ask around

1Ds Mark IV
A few reports saying we shouldn’t be expecting a 1Ds Mark IV in the near future.

Other Rumors
It is super slow at the moment. I’m receiving no information. I’ve been able to spend my time healing my thumb and working on a new venture. The new venture will be announced next week if all goes well. It’s mostly for Canadians, but some of you may be interested in it anyway.

  1. Me too.

    If I want to travel light, I don’t want to buy a whole new system to do it. I want to be able to take along some combination of my EF 35mm, 85mm and EF-S 10-22mm; I’ll leave the 50D, 24-70mm and 70-200mm zooms at home; and I might consider adding a compact “EF-X” telephoto zoom to complete my lightweight travel needs.

    If it doesn’t take my existing lenses, I’m not interested, as I’d be better off buying a Panasonic or Olympus.

  2. it is great news! but i won’t wreck CR guys surprise. Checked through the site just now and don’t see an official announcement as to what it is so i’ll leave it be. He did give me a CR t-shirt though (Y)
