Canon EOS-1D C Price Drops by $1,000 (in Hong Kong)


Canon EOS-1D C (Adorama | B&H Photo)

It appears the Canon EOS-1D C saw a price drop around $1,000 by Canon Hong Kong, where it is now selling for approx. $7,000 ($12,000 in USA). There are speculations these may mean something, like a replacement coming soon (don’t think so).

EOSHD writes:

According to EOSHD forum member Fabuloux, whose local dealer now sells the 1D C for HKD 54,000 ($7000 US dollars) the low price is a result of Canon lowering the official list price to $61,999 HK dollars. Sure enough you can view the new price on the official Canon Hong Kong website here.  That is now MUCH closer to the RRP in Hong Kong of the plain old 1D X, which sells for $44,000 ($5700 US dollars).

A difference of approx. $1,700 to the  EOS-1D X is an interesting point. Given the price in Hong Kong you may want to have a look on eBay to see if you can grab an EOS-1D C for $7,000.

Canon Rebel T6i/EOS 750D To Be Announced For CP+ (CW4, and more mention of 11-24mm f/4L coming)

Is this the Rebel T6i/EOS 750D?

Canon Rumors got word that Canon will announce the Rebel T6i/EOS 750D shortly before CP+. They write:

We’ve received confirmation that the camera that has appeared in a recent Canon leak is indeed the next Rebel and we should see the announcement sometime before CP+ in February. No specifications for the camera were given.

The same rumor reported by CR also suggest that the DSLR Canon leaked last week (images above and below) in a Connect Station CS100 promo video, is indeed the Rebel T6i/EOS 750D. If true, this means Canon is moving the Rebel line upmarket, since the depicted DSLR has a lock slider and a top LCD display, both features usually seen starting from the semi-pro line-up. And since it is used together with the CS100 we can also assume it will have NFC. The image below also depicts the supposed T6i/750D.

Is this the Rebel T6i/EOS 750D?

CR’s rumor also confirms our rumor posted a few days ago that Canon will announce the (already leaked) EF 11-24mm f/4L lens for CP+, suggesting a price of $2899 in USA and $3099 in Canada.

Five Interviews With Five Emerging Canon Photographers

ilovehatephotography posted five interviews with five emerging professional photographers using Canon gear.

Photography is about perspectives. How you create your images depend on how you see the world, through your experiences, your culture, and your understanding. The wonderful thing about the art is that it lets you share those perspectives directly through your images.

Canon Photographers


Thomas Delahaye is not the kind of photographer who does macro and wild-life photography in a naturalistic way. He has an amazing eye to see the perspectives and catch the subject with his artistic vision, even if he has to place himself in original position to create his photographs.
