I just got word from a reliable source that there will be no new Canon DSLRs announced in 2011.  Bummer. [click to continue…]

Canon 1Ds Mark IV

A reliable tipster sent in word that we’ll be hearing more from Canon in mid-September.  It should be the 13th or 20th – most likely it will be Sept. 13 (Canon loves Tuesdays). [click to continue…]

Canon Radio TTL Patent Application

Canon has obviously been working on a new TTL flash system that works with radio sync triggering for quite a while now.  We saw a patent application for a Canon radio-triggered flash and camera system in August 2010 and now, almost a year later, another Canon patent application that advances this tech has been revealed by the USPTO.

And maybe (hopefully) this is a sign that it’s getting closer to market. [click to continue…]

DSLR Magazine thinks so.

As published in our of our April 23, Canon shall, before the end of the year 2009, two new high-end professional models.

They go on to say that one of the models will maintain the smaller-than-full-frame sensor (i.e., the 1D Mark IV) and the 1Ds Mark III successor will be the expected evolution of its predecessor.  With the new 1Ds, Canon aiming stronger toward the medium format audience, which will entail even more megapixels.  Finally, the author points out a successor/alternative to the G10 will surface, around 9-megapxels though, with lower noise than the G10.

Rumors of the successor to the Canon 1D Mark III persist. The latest word, picked up by Canon Rumors, consists of a number of possible new spec lists, ranging between a 16 and 18 megapixel sensor. While there’s no inherent credibility attached to these spec lists, CR says that they have it on good word that the 1D Mark IV will arrive February 2010. [click to continue…]

Contrary to prior rumors of a Canon 1Ds Mark IV and 1D Mark IV coming out soon, I received a tip from a reliable source today that there will be no Canon 1-series DSLRs released at PMA 2009.  This person explained where the information originated and I believe it to be accurate.

Unfortunately, that is all the info that I can reveal while keeping the source anonymous, which I agreed to do.  I can say, however, that I still expect a Canon Rebel XSi replacement to be revealed very soon.
