Canon has released firmware version 1.1.3 for the Canon EOS 6D. The firmware update provides a relatively minor fix that “corrects the phenomenon where date/time settings reset.”
You can download the firmware update here on Canon’s website.

The latest rumors suggest that Canon has a new camera announcement coming on April 23, 2013. While no specific details have leaked out at this point, the Canon 70D seems to be a very likely candidate.
The 70D has been rumored to be coming for several months now. The timing is also right to replace the 2.5 year old Canon 60D. [click to continue…]

Even though we are now in April, I am still digging through things I saw while at CES 2013 back in January. One of the interesting things for Pentax shooters was a new speedlight mockup on display in the Pentax booth.
The only official thing I can reveal about it is that Pentax was “showing a reference model of new flashes.” Boring, eh?
Well, you can see in the images below what Pentax might have going on with its new flash unit(s) at some point in the probably reasonably near future. Feel free to speculate away. And, if you spot something that jumps out at you, please let us know in the comments. [click to continue…]
