Speculation is what makes this game fun isn’t it? Well, when speculating about Canon, we’re left wondering a lot going into CES 2016 (Consumer Electronics Show). This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. We’ve seen quite a bit of commotion from them recently, most notably, rumblings of an EOS-1D X Mark II. Sad part is that it looks like we’ll have to wait until February to see this.
Also, there’s been talk about potentially seeing the next generation of the Canon 70D, but without any major rumors, it’s hard to imagine that we’ll see that either. In fact, it’s looking more and more like there aren’t any major announcements at all coming at CES. At Canonrumors.com, they’re speculating that we may see a couple PowerShot and VIXIA camcorder system announcements.
This isn’t the end of the story though, as Canon is usually pretty quiet with its large announcements during CES. Also, it is the Consumer Electronics Show, so yet again, it isn’t necessarily surprising that they’re focusing on their more consumer range cameras.
What is interesting about the Canon booth in 2016 are the 8k demos that they’re doing. Apparently, Canon has an 8k projection system that they’ll be showing off, demonstrating the, “Canon 8K Ride Experience where attendees can see the future of visual imaging and experience, firsthand, the physical and emotional reactions that take place when an 8K video projected on a large screen simulates a physical journey.”
While I won’t be attending CES 2016, if I were, I’d be headed to the Canon booth to check that out.
What to Expect Next Week at CES 2016
Via Canon Rumors:
At the beginning of December, we posted what we thought you could expect from Canon at CES 2016 in Las Vegas during the first week of January, and what we figured would be coming hasn’t changed.
We only expect a couple of PowerShot and perhaps VIXIA announcements.
As mentioned in the Canon press release, they’ll be doing a lot of 8K demoes, which stems from the 8K development announcement we saw at the Canon EXPO back in September. We expect to learn new things about Canon’s 8K future in April at NAB.
