The new support center is located on the Sunset Gower Studio lot at 6060 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

More Canon Video Camera Rumors for Nov. 3

Canon November 3

Speculation surrounding Canon’s November 3 announcement continues to be a big topic of conversation (just what Canon wanted, right?).  Canon Rumors received another tip with a couple of vague specs.

The tipster claims a video camera with a Super 35 sensor (roughly APS-C sized), compact flash recording and 3 new lenses announced alongside the camera.  While that’s not much to go on, the new lenses makes a lot of sense – particularly in light of my review of Canon’s recent patent application for video-optimized EF lenses that feature an aperture ring.

One month from today, we’ll know for sure.  In the mean time, stay tuned for the latest.  And if you have any insight into what’s coming next feel free to drop a line via the contact form and let me know.
