Another Canon EOS 70D rumor surfaced and is reported at Northlight Images. No specs this time but some tidbits about the announcement. They have been told that the announcement of the EOS 70D is “some 6 weeks away”. It appears as if some of the expected Canon announcement may have been delayed due to technical and marketing reasons.
The Canon EOS 70D announcement is a sort of mistery. No real leaks so far and repeatedly wrong announcement dates. Where the hence is the EOS 60D price & specs)replacement?
The skilled hackers at Magic Lantern just discovered that 2k raw DNG output on both the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Mark III is possible. For the time being it is not possible to record video, but it is expected that 24fps will be possible.
The idea is to intercept the DNG stream and to save frame sequences to the memory card. The ML team says the output can be used for single frames without shutter actuation. That’s great for timelapse photography:
No mirror flip or shutter curtain movement. This is a big deal for time lapsers who sometimes shoot 1000 or more shots in 1 sitting. This can significantly extend the life of their cameras. Also bodes well for RAW video in the future.
This looks to be a true breakthrough for the ML team. The information came from their Facebook page.
Two new EOS M system cameras in the coming months? That’s what a new rumor suggests. Canon may try to relaunch the EOS M system (price & specs) with two new cameras. One being the replacement for the actual EOS M, the other being a more pro-oriented camera, a higher end model with viewfinder and other accessories. There could also be three new lenses for the EOS M system.
But the best part of the rumor is this: the auto-focus on the new EOS M models is said to be “class leading”.
