Canon Cinema EOS C200 to be announced next month, featuring 4K? [CW2]

Canon Cinema EOS C200 To Be Announced Next Month, Featuring 4K? [CW2]

Is Canon going to announce the Canon Cinema EOS C200 next month? That’s what a new rumor suggests.

The Canon Cinema EOS C200 may also feature 4K video. No specifications so far. It’s not clear if the EOS C200 will replace the EOS C100, or not. We heard about an EOS C100 replacement last year, and it was suggested it may have 4K.

I’m a bit puzzled by this rumor. First. I wonder why the EOS C200 wasn’t announced at NAB, which would have been the right stage for this camera announcement. Second, the EOS 6D Mark II may be announced in JulyI’m not sure Canon is going to announce to major camera upgrades one after the other in such a short time frame.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS M5 Firmware Version 1.0.1 Released (minor Fixes)

Canon UK made Canon EOS M5 firmware 1.0.1 available for download. Firmware Version 1.0.1 incorporates the following fixes:

1. Corrects a phenomenon in which, when the playback grid is set to “6×4”, and a vertical image is displayed, or a horizontal image is rotated to be displayed vertically, the grid does not display correctly.
2. In languages other than Japanese, the phrase “no. of shots” has been corrected to “value” in the “Time-lapse movie settings > Interval/Shots” setting screen.

Firmware Version 1.0.1 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.0.0.
If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.0.1, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Canon EOS 6D Mark II announcement in July 2017 rumored again [CW2]


canon rumorsEos 6d mark ii

A new rumor surfaced on the web. It’s (again) suggested the Canon EOS 6D Mark II may be announced in July 2017, and ship in August 2017.

So far we do not have reliable rumors, neither for the specifications nor for the announcement. Summer or Fall are now the most suggested announcement dates after almost a year of shifted announcement dates.

All the EOS 6D Mark II specifications floating around on the web have been leaked first here on Canon Watch.

Please note that there have been rumors in the past suggesting Canon may not announce the EOS 6D Mark II but a mirrorless full-frame camera instead (most recent rumor). I hope there will be an EOS 6D Mark II, since the EOS 6D was a great DSLR. However, the EOS 6D Mark II is long overdue, and a full-frame mirrorless with EF mount as replacement is more likely than most people thinks.

If a July announcement is real then we will soon have some specs and maybe even one or two leaked pictures. As much as I hope the EOS 6D Mark II will be announced, and be announced soon, I do not entirely believe in a July announcement. We are just to close to July and still there is absolutely nothing that leaked about the EOS 6D Mark II. That’s a bit weird for a camera supposed to be announced in two months.

All EOS 6D Mark II rumors are here. Stay tuned!
