Is This The Canon EOS 7D Replacement?


I told you the replacement for the Canon EOS 7D was undergoing professional testing at FIFA 2014 World Cup. Now NL got an image sent in that shows a Canon DSLR that is always covered up. You can see it is a Canon because the lens is made by Canon. According to NL’s source the photographer with the concealed camera is always in the same spot, always shooting with this hidden camera.

I also got serious hints that the NDAs for the EOS 7D replacement will expire at the beginning of September, so the camera in the pic above could definitely be Canon’s new APS-C flagship, and the rumored new 100-400mm telephoto lens.

Press release:

Canon PowerShot N honored with Bronze International Design Excellence Award

TOKYO, July 3, 2014—Canon Inc. announced today that the Company’s PowerShot N digital compact camera (released in April 2013) has been recognized with the Bronze International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) in the Entertainment category by the Industrial Designers Society of America.

Considered the preeminent international design awards competition, the International Design Excellence Awards, launched in 1980, aim to foster business and public understanding of the importance of industrial design excellence to the quality of life and the economy. Products are reviewed based on not only their functions and aesthetic quality, but also such factors as level of innovativeness, as well as benefits to users and to society as a whole. The awards program recognizes the best product designs from a wide range of sectors, including industrial products, consumer electronics and household goods, along with vehicles, sports items and furnishings.

Canon developed the new-concept PowerShot N for users looking to enjoy various ways of capturing and sharing photos via social networking sites using smartphones, tablet PCs and similar devices. Featuring an all-new design and novel operability, the camera includes such features as a Creative Shot mode, which automatically adjusts composition, color and lighting to produce five unique images along with the original photo, as well as a shutter ring that shifts vertically to snap photos. In addition, a Mobile Device Connect Button allows the camera to easily connect to a smartphone or other device with a single touch of a button.

In addition to the IDEA bronze award, the Canon PowerShot N has also been honored with a prestigious 2013 Good Design Award in Japan and 2014 iF Design Award in Germany.

Encouraged by the recognition of the Company’s design excellence, Canon will continue striving to realize products that combine the highest levels of performance and design.
