Canon patent for 15-75mm F2-5.6 image-stabilised lens for APS-C sensors

15-75mm F2-5.6

A Canon patent for a 15-75mm F2-5.6 lens with image stabilization surfaced. Although it is suggested that the patent refers to a Powershot camera with an APS-C sensor, I couldn’t find hints pointing to that.

A new Canon camera has been registered at Indonesian Certification Authority (is this the EOS 5D Mark IV?)

Canon DS126601

A Canon camera has been registered at Indonesian Certification Authority Postel, reports Digicame-Info. It says:

  • Equipment: Digital camera
  • Model name: Canon DS126601
  • Manufacturing: Japan
  • Date: July 1, 2016

The registration can be found on the web, though no detailed information can be accessed.

Canon DS126601 doesn’t tell us much. However, according to another bit of leaked information, this camera will have WiFi and GPS on board. We see it in the registration for the same camera at Taiwan NCC (National Communications Commission, picture below).

Canon DS126601

And that’s all we have. Now the big question is: is this the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV? If we believe in an announcement before Photokina 2016 (September 2016), as most rumors suggest, then this may well be a reference to the EOS 5D Mark IV. All EOS 5D Mark IV rumors are listed here. Concerning the EOS 5D Mark IV specifications, so far nothing beyond speculation (though plausible) has surfaced.

What do you think?

Canon EOS M10 review (a simple, easy-to-use entry-level MILC, Imaging Resource)

Canon EOS M10 Review (a Simple, Easy-to-use Entry-level MILC, Imaging Resource)

Canon EOS M10: Amazon | B&H Photo | Digitalrev | eBay | Adorama | Canon USA

Canon EOS M10 at a glance:

  • 18.0MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 6 Image Processor
  • 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Tilting Touchscreen LCD
  • Full HD 1080p Video at 30/24 fps
  • Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity NFC
  • Hybrid CMOS AF II, 49-Point System
  • Up to 4.6 fps and Expandable ISO 25600
  • Creative Assist and Self Portrait Mode

Imaging Resource posted their Canon EOS M10 review, Canon’s entry-level mirrorless camera.

Offering a simple, effective user experience, this camera is not equipped to rattle off a big burst of RAW images or record 4K video, but it can easily capture fine images at a fairly wide range of ISOs. When considering the Canon EOS M10, you need to keep your expectations in check with its entry-level status (and price point). Right now, you can purchase an M10 with the 15-45mm kit lens for only $450 ($150 less than MSRP). Considering its good image quality and intuitive, simple controls, it strikes me as a good option for someone looking to make the upgrade to his or her first interchangeable lens camera, while still keeping everything lightweight and compact. Read the review…

The EOS M10’s weakest point appears to be the auto-focus. The strongest are the ease of use, the well working touchscreen, and the excellent image quality we are used to get with Canon.
