A couple Canon EOS Cinema cameras received further discounts with some relatively reasonable prices now. The original Canon EOS C100 is now available for $2,299 (was $3,999), while the C100 with the Dual Pixel AF update is $2499 (was $4,499). The C100 Mark II with the EF-S 18-135mm IS STM lens is $3,699 (reg. $5,699). Finally, the C300 Mark II is available for $9,999 (reg. $15,999) – perhaps in response to the recently announced Panasonic AU-EVA1, which ships later this year. I’m not sure if these are permanent price drops or if they are only for a short while. If you’ve been on the hunt for a cinema camera though, these are are the most attractive deals Canon has offered thus far.
The Canon EOS C200 is the latest cinema camera in the Cinema EOS System. It is a balancing act between the entry-level C100 Mark II and the broadcast and cinema standard C300 Mark II. With a starting price of $5999 for the stripped-down C200B (body only) model, the C200 becomes the cheapest 4K cinema camera option in Canon’s line. [Read more…]
The Canon EOS M10 is the latest in the company’s efforts to become relevant in the mirrorless space. Fortunately, Canon is starting to figure this space out with some solid tech and really good overall user experience. While the EOS M10 may not be the camera the pros are waiting on, it is worth paying attention to because I think it signals what is to come.
The EOS M10 ships only as a kit option at the moment with a EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens. While retail is $599 for the kit, it was only that price for the first few days that it hit the market and has been floating in the sub-$500 range ever since. [Read more…]
As if the Canon EOS 5Ds wasn’t enough already at 50MP, Canon has announced that it is developing a 120MP DSLR.
Canon says that “[t]he camera under development is being designed to facilitate a level of resolution more than sufficient for large-format printing and extensive cropping capability while maintaining fantastic image quality.”
Canon notes that the camera is built for the current EF system lenses; however, it will apparently not be compatible with all of the lenses in the Canon EF line. According to a footnote in Canon’s press release, “Out of the 96 lenses that make up the EF lens lineup, 60 models will be compatible with the [new 120MP DSLR].” [Read more…]
On June 22, 2015, a Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens rolled off the production line as the 110,000,000th lens in the EF-series product line.
Canon began producing EF lenses for the Canon EOS system in 1987 and, by 1995, had produced 10 million lenses. Canon has reached each 10 million lens production mark faster than than last with the exception of a measurable decline for the last two milestones. [Read more…]
A little over a month ago, Canon announced its 10th anniversary celebration of the EOS 5D Series. Canon has now released a new video further celebrating the Series. [Read more…]
