Canon Going To Throw 4K In Everything?


Canon Rumors writes;

We’re told to expect “a bunch” of 4K products from Canon, starting in early 2015. There will be products in the EOS line, Cinema EOS line and possibly the VIXIA line.

So, after stating Canon will not deliver 4K in any product soon now it seems they have changed their mind. Even the EOS 7D Mark II is speculated to get 4K via firmware update. Some time ago here at Canon Watch we got a tip from a  good source suggesting the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will come with 4k (and I still think this was and is a reliable rumor).

Well, Apple just introduced their amazing iMac with 5K retina display so it is at least trendy to talk about 4K. I don’t think we will see 4K in Canon’s lower EOS line-up. Currently Canon is featuring 4K on the EOS-1D C (Adorama | B&H Photo) and the C500.

Canon Working on Smaller DSLRs, Not Necessarily Mirrorless (?)


The Canon EOS M – a totally underestimated gem in Canon’s line-up

Thanks to the source who send the tip.

It appears Canon is investing resources in the development of smaller DSLRs, but not necessarily in mirrorless systems. Well, no one thinks Canon ever believed in MILCs. The rumour I got is saying that Canon has no plans to back up the whole mirrorless thing and prefers to invest resources in developing smaller DSLRs.

According to my source, Canon acknowledges that users want high-performing cameras that are as small as it can get. The Rebel SL1 was just the beginning of a development Canon is committed to evolve further. DSLRs that are as small as possible while maintaining the EF/EF-S mount (but see this interview where Canon says they consider a new mount type for 4/3 systems).

Interesting rumour. In some way it’s backed up by a previous rumour, suggesting that the next Rebel may have an EVF (electronic viewfinder). It is no secret that Canon never really wanted to make a killer mirrorless camera. Though I still think the EOS M is a wonderful and well performing little camera (it just got a lot of bad press by people who never really used it). I have it and I love it. Guess I am among a small group of fans of this camera.

What do you think about this rumor? I think it’s rather plausible to be true.
