Rumor: New Canon EOS-1 DSLR in 2014

Canon EOS-1

According to NL, Canon will announce a new EOS-1 series body in 2014. The announcement should happen at the same time when Nikon announces the (also rumored) D4x.

The camera is defined as a “high end” DSLR, and it will come with “lenses to match”. it appears that prototypes will be tested at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. No word if this will be the high megapixel DSLR Canon is supposed to announce sooner or later. Finally, the rumor states that Canon will not repeat the mistake made when they announced the EOS-1 X: the EOS -1 X was announced before the Nikon D4 but shipped much later.

Humor: The Ultimate Nikon vs Canon Underwater Shootout

Nikon vs Canon

Warning: don’t try this. Really, do not.

The folks at wetpixel.com is working on the ultimate Canon vs Nikon underwater shootout. Both companies produced special editions of their pro grade cameras, i.e. there is a Canon EOS 5D Mark III (price & specs) that can be used under water without housings of any kind. That opens new possibilities for underwater photography we haven’t seen before. The results of the comparison are still under embargo but I am confident wetpixel will soon share their findings with us.

This is a major breakthrough in underwater photography, and obviously the Canon is the better performing camera. Period. :-)
