A pair of new Canon cameras surfaced in some Taiwan government filings, complete with photos of the new models.
The Canon PowerShot S200 showed is expected to replace the PowerShot S110. As can be seen in the image of the S200, it will feature 5x optical zoom lens (24-120mm equivalent), which is the same lens found in the current S110. [click to continue…]
The Magic Lantern guys never cease to amaze with what they can pull out of Canon HDSLRs. In the latest Magic Lantern firmware that’s in development, the Canon 5D Mark III now manages to capture raw video at 24p. This comes after it was previously teased running at lower frame rates.
The resolution isn’t quite up to full 1920 x 1080; however, 720p is no problem. Additionally, they have been able to record up to 1928×850 with continuous recording. Bumping the resolution up to 1928×902 only allows for 700 frames of capture (or 29 seconds) before recording stops.
For an example of what raw video offers over Canon’s internal ALL-I recording, check out the below sample videos. [click to continue…]
New rumors of another attempt at a large-sensor PowerShot model have surfaced. While the Canon G1X was somewhat impressive, its beefy size and lackluster optics left a lot to be desired. According to the rumor mill, the upcoming camera won’t be a G1X successor. [click to continue…]

The latest in a long line of rumors concerning the Canon 7D Mark II puts the camera’s delivery beyond this calendar year and into 2014. That would put the original Canon 7D (it was announced in Sept. 2009) well past the 4-year mark if/when the 7D Mark II is announced in 2014. Much longer and we’ll need to start looking into kindergarten programs for the 7D…
Additionally, the Canon 70D is supposedly the only other Canon DSLR that is going to arrive this year; however, there are rumors from “good sources” that put several new lenses coming in 2013. Could the EF 28-300mm and EF 100-400mm lenses be among those new offerings?
