Canon Rumor: Is Canon Working on a Full-Frame Compact Camera (and more APS-C compacts on the way)?

Canon Rumor

Thanks to the reader who sent me in the information!

May Canon be working, and maybe be set to announce it in short, on a full-frame compact camera like the Sony RX1 and on more compact system cameras with APS-C sensor, like the Canon EOS M? That’s what the product landing page of Canon France suggests. Have a look at the screenshot above: the EOS M is mentioned in the reflex category, and then there are two categories named “Compacts 24×36″ and “Compacts APS”. The former link is active and leads to a page where you are supposed to have a choice among different models, but there are no models in the dropdown lists. The latter (Compacts APS) is inactive.

Don’t know what to think about that. The latest Canon-related rumor was suggesting that Canon is preparing a big press event (they are sending out invitations). Then there are the EOS 70D and EOS 7D Mark II, both excpectd to be announced this year. However, none of these fits in the category “Compacts 24×36″ or “Compacts APS”.

What di you think?
