Canon Set To Announce A 46MP Professional DSLR Next Month?

Canon

Thanks Sally

On fredmiranda.com a thread showed up where it is suggested that Canon might release a 46MP professional DSLR next month, for PhotoPlus in New York City.

The supposed high-res camera is said to come for $8,000-$9,000. This rumor is less implausible than you may think. Just a few days ago a truly authentic looking image of an 11-24mm f/4L lens showed up. If the lens is real it might point to an announcement to come soon.

Stay tuned…

Tatsuya Yamada – The Man Behind The Canon Powershot G7 X (and links to sample images)

 Powershot G7 X

Canon Professional Network published an article bout Mr. Tatsuya Yamada, the mastermind behind the G7 X.

Says Mr. Yamada:

[The G7 X] was planned with the concept, ‘High image quality in a pocket size’. Compared to the G1 X Mark II, putting a priority on the size is a feature. By achieving a balance between high image quality and size, so an even broader range of people can enjoy the camera, the best answer was to use the 1.0-type sensor. Also, particular priority was placed on background blur plus the feel of that blurring as well, so in addition to an f/1.8 (W) – f/2.8 (T) lens that is bright even at maximum telephoto, a 9-blade aperture iris – the same as that on the G1 X Mark II – was also included. In addition to this, to achieve the ‘expanded range of shooting’ that Canon is aiming for, it is also equipped with a long focal length of 24-100mm, and an LCD monitor that tilts 180 degrees.”
