After the long-awaited Canon 600EX-RT was announced alongside the Canon 5D Mark III earlier this year, we knew it would only be a matter of time before Canon dropped more radio transmitting Speedlites in the lineup. Now, Canon Rumors has word that a 430EX II replacement is inbound for possibly a Fall 2012 announcement.
For those not ready to cough up nearly $60o for the 6ooEX-RT Speedlite, a 430EX II replacement should come with a more enthusiast-friendly price tag (likely in the $300-$400 price range). Perhaps we’ll see an unveiling of the new flash at or around Photokina 2012.
The new Canon EOS M will be available in October for $799.99 with a 22mm f/2 kit lens. The EOS M and several accessories are available for pre-order now via the links below.
Something is coming Thursday night at midnight EST. Of course, I’ll have full details up as soon as I know something official. We may even get some leaks ahead of time (usually the case).
Light and Lighting is an upcoming book from Syl Arena. His last book, Speedliter’s Handbook, is awesome and takes the cake in terms of Canon Speedlite instruction. It’s the book that should come with every Speedlite sold – or, at least the book that anyone who wants to learn how to properly use a Speedlite with their Canon camera.
Syl takes a more basic and brand-agnostic approach with Light and Lighting, as he notes below.
As part of Peachpit’s From Snapshots to Great Shots series, it will present fundamental concepts about light and various techniques of photographic lighting at a level accessible to novice shooters.
Syl is a great photographer and author. Expect this to be a real gem for getting your lighting feet underneath you. Light and Lighting is due out in June of this year and is available for pre-order from Amazon now.
