CES 2016 is just over a month away, the show runs from January 6, 2016 until January 9, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Canon usually announces some consumer products for the show during the first part of January.
At the last CES, Canon announced a slew of lower end PowerShot cameras, as well as the Connect Station and a new EOS 6D kit with the EF 24-105 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM. In 2014, Canon announced PowerShot cameras as well as consumer camcorders. Can we expect the same sort of thing for CES 2016?
History says we’ll get a few announcements from Canon, but as I’m writing this, the possibility of an EOS M product being announced for the show seems highly unlikely. The entry level EOS M10 was just announced about 6 weeks ago and that would fit the CES show a lot better than a “pro” mirrorless camera, or even a replacement to the EOS M3.
Is a DSLR possible? If there was going to be a DSLR announcement, I’d say it would be for the EOS 70D replacement. There have been a few hints over the last 3-4 weeks that the 70D was on its way out. Though an announcement, even for a lower end DSLR, would be very unusual for Canon.
A lot of people are asking about the Rebel SL1 replacement, to which we have no answer for.
We are hearing there will be a second set of announcements the 4th week of January, but we’ve been unable to confirm that with any sort of certainty.
