The Canon Professional Network posted a long interview with the engineers who are behind the Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II development.

From the interview:

Q: Have any other improvements to image quality been made?

Kota Terayama: Correction of diffraction blurring, even for a small aperture, has been added. DIGIC 7’s high-speed processing performance is used along with optical information for compensation. Be sure to experience this for yourself, especially in dynamic landscape shots and performance shooting!

Hideaki Yamaki: Also, the EOS Auto Lighting Optimizer (ALO) is included on this model for the first time on a compact digital camera. As the first model to be equipped with DIGIC 7, one feature of this camera is even more advanced ALO performance than on the EOS M3 mirrorless compact. This makes it possible to compensate the brightness while maintaining contrast, making it the perfect feature for photographing people in backlit scenes.

Update: Another mention of Canon EOS 5D Mark IV announcement at the end of August (25/26) [CW4]

canon rumorscanon rumors

Update: Some very blurry images of a supposed Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera have been posted at Northlight Images.

This morning (in EU, last night in US) we reported a rumor suggesting the highly anticipated Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will most likely be announced on August 26. Now another announcement date leaked on the web, August 25. The one day difference may be because of different geographic areas: 8/25 in North America, 8/26 in Europe. Given two different mentions on practically the same date I upgrade the rumor to CW4.

So, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is finally coming. Stay tuned!

It seems Canon hit the mark with the Powershot G7 X Mark II. This little yet powerful compact camera featuring a 1″ sensor and a fast lens, gets remarkable reviews. DPReview‘s review is one of the more critical reviews I saw. In the conclusion they write:

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the PowerShot G7 X Mark II is that Canon listened to its customers (and maybe some camera reviewers) and dealt with a large number of the problems that people had with its predecessor. Whether it’s something cosmetic like the new grip or noticeably better burst shooting, the G7 X II is what the original should’ve been back in 2014.

[…]

Overall, the PowerShot G7 X Mark II is one of the best cameras in this class, though its JPEG image quality and below average battery life keep it from earning our top award. Read the review…

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV announcement coming last week of August 2016? [CW3]

canon rumorscanon rumors

It appears Canon is set to announce (thanks) the highly anticipated yet not leaked EOS 5D Mark IV towards the end of August. Makes sense since Photokina is happening at the end of September, and most of those in the industry believe the EOS 5D Mark IV will be on display during the show. New source but at least a plausible suggestion. The candidate dates I’ve been told are, in order of likelihood: 26 August, 22 August, and 29 August.

So far no reliable EOS 5D Mark IV specs have leaked. Click here to see all EOS 5D Mark IV rumors. Stay tuned, and keep a grain of salt ready…
