HotRodCameras announced that Canon will soon release a new camera. I guess something big and videorelated is coming right in time for the NABshow!

As long as we know Canon will NOT announce the new Canon 5D MarkII successor.

Canon says it doesn’t need to go mirrorless (and the Fuji X100 is to expensive!)

Richard Trestain (left) and Richard Shepherd from Canon Europe had a one hour talk with Iker Moran from Quesabesde (Click here to read the google english translation).

Those are the key points of the Interview:
- “We do not need CSC (Compact System Cameras ) because our current range covers all fields. In the future we’ll see.
- “It is not just in size, but of balance between performance and ergonomics. I dare not say that the EOS 1100D SLR is the smallest that we can build.
- And regarding the X100 Canon said: “$ 1,000 is a lot of money for a compact,”

Photographyblog tested the Canon 600D (T3i)

Mark Goldstein from Photographyblog tested the Canon 600D: “In terms of the competition, things have heated up since the 550D / T2i was launched, with Sony in particular putting the cat amongst the proverbial pigeons with the video-tastic A55, while Nikon’s older D3100 looks a little less tempting now in terms of features but is cheaper, not to mention some of the better and crucially smaller compact system cameras. This mid-range area of the market has certainly become very competitive in the last 18 months. Despite that, the Canon EOS 600D / Rebel T3i cleverly occupies a position that’s mid-way between the 550D and the 7D without being subjected to a price increase on launch. It’s the most capable yet friendly Rebel yet, and easily worthy of our Highly Recommended award.
