Off topically thoght: this means the arrival of a 5DIII sometime by fall 2011. As it is my main interest of upcoming Canon products. It will be a great year till then with all the lenses and stuff which is also rumored to be announced. 1DsIV will give a forecast on what possibly will be implemented in a 5DIII. You better get married now CG...;-) As there ain't no possibility later in the year to take a day off due to new Canon products;-)

Are you referring to that G12 mock up with intolerably large lens? They are ruining the aesthetics of G-series should that design be true...

Yes, that would fit the up-to-now 5D timeline perfectly.

The 'fake' G12 picture shows focal length of 16.1-80.5 mm as compared to G11's 6.1-30.5 mm. This can only mean the G12 gets an increase in sensor size. I thought everyone has always been clamoring for larger sensor sizes. No?

So which one of the news is CR3 now? The one about the 60D or the G12 or the lenses....?
First it's 19th, then 24th and now 26th hope it's final some day....

This would be cool, but unfortunately the picture is definetly a photoshopped G11. There are a lot of things that make me think that (not only me).

There is at least one CR3 for sure: our man is getting married in September and it might result in probable new "body releases" ;-)

CNET Asia seems to have mentioned the G12:
http://asia.cnet.com/reviews/digitalcameras/0,39005881,45287152p,00.htm
http://asia.cnet.com/reviews/digitalcameras/0,39001469,62202170,00.htm

However I can't find any official announement yet.

But at least there's a picture which doesn't look like a fake... :)

About the BIG WHITES:
The last time they were updated all 4 lenses (2,8 300; 2,8 400; 4 500; 4 600) were released as IS versions together (that was back in July 1999, so more than 10 years ago!).
I´m pretty sure they´ll do it just the same this time, because there is no good reason to split that.

Have a nice wedding next week!

Looks like the G12 information on the 2 CNET Asia pages has now been removed.

The time scale might be shifting, but the number of days it is shifting by is getting smaller :D

Yeah, I know, I'm desperate to hear about the 60D and will cling onto anything I can get until any NDA is lifted.

It looks like both the S95 and G12 have high dynamic range mode... not something I really thought about before but now I have thought about it, I wonder if the 60D will have it!

Hopefully not long to wait now...

I doubt the 60D would have the HDR mode. 60D is geared more towards "professionals" and HDR in the point'n'shoots is somewhat gimmicky.

I am curious how well this HDR mode works. Does it process them completely in camera...into a CR2? ;)

(EDIT): On the other hand, we can look at the old "direct print" button to counter my first argument!

I'm really dubious about the G12 emerging as shown in the earlier rumor (plus the supposed "press release" was just a G11 press release with the names exchanged). it might be heading in the right direction (yes larger sensor please) but I doubt that's the exact form factor.

that sd4500 is kind of ugly, not sure whats going on with the two-tone colors and the weird angular sculpting taken a step too far ...

good to see non-handicapped movie mode in the new S95

Looking at the leaked specs of the upcoming 16 MP Sony A55 (10 fps???) and 16 MP Nikon D95 (39 AF points???), it looks like the Canon 60D has some serious competition ahead. Canon better release something more than a 7D/50D rehash.

I second that.

Canon needs to come to the table with some interesting features and ensure that the basics, such as focus, are up to par.

Cheers.
