Canon EOS 100D Rumored for Next Week

Canon DSLR Rumors

After yesterday’s word of a Canon press event on March 22, more detailed rumors now point to the smaller Canon DSLR being the EOS 100D.

According to the sources, two Canon EOS cameras will land next week on March 21/22 with one being this EOS 100D and no specific word on the other except that it won’t be the Canon 70D. Perhaps the other will be the next iteration of the EOS M?

Canon EOS C50 Coming to the Low End of Cinema Line?

Canon Cinema Camera

After yesterday’s rumor of a new Canon EOS Cinema camera to be unveiled around NAB 2013, new rumors surfaced of an “entry-level” cinema camera (perhaps a Canon EOS C50) that would be situated below the Canon C100.

While Canon’s cinema cameras are certainly popular, they are still well out of the reach of many amateurs and low-end pros who are shooting video with Canon DSLRs such as the Rebel T4i and Canon 60D. At $6500, the C100 is still quite a bit of a reach for many of these shooters.

Would a $3000 Canon C50 push these enthusiasts and low-end pros to step up to a dedicated cinema camera? Would you pay $3000 or more for such a camera? If a C50 is in the works, what kind of specs could it bring to the table and not cannibalize the C100?
