Canon EOS 70D Deals (body & kits, Adorama)


Canon EOS 70D

Another round of Canon EOS 70D deals at Adorama. Both the EOS 70D body and kits are available. The 70D is a phenomenal APS-C DSLR, and I enjoy using it whenever I can. The Dual Pixel AF is a world apart from whatever AF you have seen on other DSLR, and there are reviewers who outline that it outperforms conventional AF systems.

Canon Powershot SX60 HS To Be Released Soon (and some specs)

Canon Powershot SX60

Canon Powershot SX50 HS

From a new source (thanks) comes the rumor that Canon will soon release the successor of the popular Powershot SX50 HS IS (price & specs), the Canon Powershot SX60 HS IS. The announcement is expected before summer 2014, possibly in the next two months .

There are some new tidbits on the specification front. The Canon Powershot SX60 HS is said to have a 15MP sensor, and to get faster on the wide end. While the SX50 has a maximum aperture of f/3.4, the Sx60 HS is rumored to have f/2.8. The SX60 HS is also said to be wider, 20-1200 in 35mm equivalent instead of the current 24-1200. That would be a 60x zoom, and it fits with the naming scheme: the SX50 had a 50x zoom, so it sounds plausible the SX60 might have a 60x zoom. Finally, there should be improvements for the auto-focus (which is already pretty quick on the SX50).

That’s all I have for the time being. Stay tuned for more.
