Canon Set To Announce A 46MP Professional DSLR Next Month?


Thanks Sally

On a thread showed up where it is suggested that Canon might release a 46MP professional DSLR next month, for PhotoPlus in New York City.

The supposed high-res camera is said to come for $8,000-$9,000. This rumor is less implausible than you may think. Just a few days ago a truly authentic looking image of an 11-24mm f/4L lens showed up. If the lens is real it might point to an announcement to come soon.

Stay tuned…

Canon Working On A New Powershot Camera With Large Sensor? (Update)


Canon Hong Kong‘s page about the latest announced products contains a curious note. The note is at the end of the page, after the Powershot N2 description. It says:

New PowerShot Digital Compact Camera Under Development 
Featuring large image sensor, high zoom capability and compact body

Canon is developing a new premium digital compact camera that combines the merits of both large image sensor and high-magnification optical zoom lens in response to the demands from users looking for high quality high zoom performance. Offering both convenience from a compact body and excellent super telephoto performance, this camera is perfect for everyday or travel shooting in high quality.

Sounds like a development announcement. Is a large sensor, super-zoom compact camera coming from Canon?

Update: DCwatch posted an article where this upcoming Powershot camera is mentioned. Below you see a picture of a slide where the development announcement is shown.

What’s That? A Canon EF 11-24 f/4L Lens Image Leaked (fake or real?)

EF 11-24 f/4L

This image was posted on (and spotted by digicame-info) and shortly after it was removed. There was a patent for a 11-24mm f/4 lens that surfaced time ago.

Hard to say if the image is a fake or not. To me it looks authentic. Is Canon preparing one more announcement? Not for Photokina 2014, since it started today.
