Breaking News: Canon EOS M2 Specifications Leaked

Canon EOS M2

We just reported that the Canon EOS M2 is set to be announced soon. Now, a few specs have been leaked. The EOS M2 could be announced in a few days.

According to digicame-info (translated) the Canon EOS M2 will have the following specs:

- APS-C 18MP sensor
– Hybrid CMOS AF II
– AF speed is about 2.3 times the current type at one-shot AF · multi-point AF
– Video Servo AF
– Image processing engine DIGIC5
– Continuous shooting 4.6 frames / second
– ISO sensitivity up to ISO12800 (ISO25600 extended)
– The 8% reduction of body size (volume) compared with EOS M
– It is equipped with Wi-Fi
– Allows remote operation of the smartphone
– Can be transferred photos smartphone, printer, etc. iMAGE GATAWAY

Nothing to get particularly excited about, except for the size reduction and the built-in WiFi. But more than anything else: no Dual Pixel AF?? This looks to be a modest incremental evolution of the EOS M, not featuring Canon’s latest sensor and sensor technology. This appears to be the sensor of the Rebel SL1/EOS 100D.

Canon Rumor: Canon EOS M2 Set To Be Announced Soon?

Canon Rumor

Canon EOS M
Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, Digitalrev, eBay

According to digicame-info (translated) Canon could soon announce the Canon EOS M2, successor of the Canon EOS M.

The new EOS M2 should be available in three different kit configurations, i.e. a double and a triple lens kit in addition to the kit with the EF-M 18-55mm IS STM. It is unclear if there will also be new EF-M lenses. Unfortunately no information about the specs, except that there will be a black and a white version of the EOS M2.

But there is also a potentially bad news: the rumor suggests that the EOS M2 will not feature Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS Auto-Focus technology. I can hardly believe that.

Another Take on Canon’s Camera Plans for 2014 (no MF, no high res DSLR, Dual Pixel AF on next EOS-1 model)

Canon's Camera PlansCanon's Camera Plans

A new rumor about Canon’s upcoming pro-level DSLRs surfaced, and it partially contradicts the previous one.

The new rumor (coming from a “long standing source”) suggests that there will not be a Canon high megapixel DSLR in 2014. Instead he EOS-1 line will stay “unified” (i.e. no EOS-1s or whatever the high res DSLR will be named). The EOS-1 series should see a new model next year with “split pixel sensor and ‘modest’ bump in pixel count” – does the “split pixel sensor” mean a sensor with Dual Pixel AF? I think so. The other new pro DSLR we could see in 2014 is an update for the EOS-1D C. Both cameras will share a “slight change in body shape”. Basically, the new rumor says that EOS 1/1C/6/5 line-up will not change for a while. Finally, the rumor also states that Canon will not move into the medium format segment.

It’s hard to say if the high resolution DSLR Canon is rumored (since a while) to work on is real or not. In my opinion Canon is working on such a camera, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we will see it soon. Given Canon’s well known conservative approach to technological innovation, they may keep it in the closet until it is either ready and mature or the marketing division decides it is time to bring it to the masses. Moreover, there have been various rumors pointing in the direction of a high res DSLR, and the rumors came from different sources. Only time will tell.

Canon Retro Cinema Camera Concept

Canon Retro

After all the camera manufacturer embracing retro looks for their cameras (latest: Nikon Df), and after we got a rumour that Canon isn’t at all working on anything looking retro, I found this camera concept made by Maxim Mezentsev & Aleksandr Suhih. Kudos guys! More images following the link below.
