canonrumors.com posted on Sunday but we thought you'd want to know – we're all dying to know what is coming from Canon and Nikon and others and some rumors have said we'd see a new Canon DSLR before the end of the year, yet CR is suggesting (see below) that there won't be anything this year in the DSLR arena (tho there may be video cameras – see their post)
The details from CanonRumors.com
I have received a lot of small rumors throughout the week. There’s till life out there, even if there isn’t anything overly exciting.
I’ll break them down.
Apparently DIGIC V will be powering the next Canon DSLRs. We all expect better noise reduction and processing speed, however there is also a “brand new feature”. I’m still waiting to find out what that is.
PowerShot G12 Replacement
There will be no G12 replacement in 2011.
Most information I am receiving now seems to suggest there will be no DSLR announcement in 2011. There are definitely a lot of prototype bodies out there, we just won’t be hearing about them until 2012.
It was suggested this was to make sure Canon could meet the production demands that the Christmas and holiday seasons require.
It was also flatly said that “Canon will announce a new camera when it’s done, and not a minute before”. Canon has no desire to announce a camera and it not be available for 2-3 months.
The R&D is ongoing. There is no prototype cameras out to photographers though.
