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.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II High ISO Sample Pictures (they are “wow”, and hands-on review)

Matt Granger posted a set of pictures shot at high ISOs with the new Canon EOS 7D Mark II. And they are pretty impressive. High ISO performance of the 7D Mark II appears to be excellent. Download the pics to see them in full resolution.

I also highly recommend these technical articles by the Canon Digital Learning Center that explain the Canon EOS 7D Mark II’s new features.

The new EOS 7D Mark II can be pre-ordered. Shipment is expected for November 2014 and orders will be shipped on a first come first serve basis::

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 kakaku.com (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.
