Being a gearhead – a blogging gearhead at that – is fun,
fascinating and sometimes frustrating.
I guess a bit like everything else.
We love Canon; we’re exasperated by Canon. We’re enthralled with Sony and Panasonic and Blackmagic…Fuji, Nikon, Pentax… but then: hey, wait a minute, they each have their own sets of issues and tradeoffs.
So when we came across this provocatively headlined post over at CanonRumors – including a good probability of Canon unveiling their 7D replacement with “a lot of the 1D X” in it — we wondered: does that include 4K?
And if it doesn’t, would anything they announce be a big splash – or nary a ripple in the pond?
More importantly, what do YOU think? What would take Canon’s new product announcements next month move from “ho-hum” to “holy smokes”?
Canon to Make a Big Splash at Photokina?
Via Canon Rumors:
We’re told there are tons of new DSLR products coming for Photokina this September. The announcement for the new stuff should happen on September 4th or 5th, depending on where you are in the world. Our source has mentioned a DSLR body as well as a host of lenses for various budgets.
What will be announced?
First up, the successor to the EOS 7D will be announced. We’re told that there’s “a lot of the 1D X” in the new camera. As well as some revolutionary sensor technology.
What about lenses?
We’re getting more confirmations that the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS will be replaced by a new version with a rotating zoom instead of the push/pull design that the lens currently uses. It looks like Canon India is teasing a new “big” lens on their Facebook page.
