EOS 5D Mark III recalled by Canon?

This is breaking news in this very moment.

Rumors that Canon will stop delivery of the 5D Mark III to retailers are going around, and getting louder by the minute. canonrumors broke the news and I also heard something about it from customers but did not yet have any confirmation by retailers. There is no official announcement so far. I don’t think that a firmware update could be the cause, since it could easily be applied as an update at any moment. The only plausible motivation for a recall would be a serious hardware problem.

But then this is just a rumor, nothing more. Hence, let’s wait for an official announcement.

Rumor: Canon EOS 650D coming soon – maybe at NAB?

It seems that the new EOS 650D/T4i could be announced soon. Amazon UK, Amazon France, Amazon Germany and Amazon Canada (and possibly other Amazon shops too) have a “Canon 650D for dummies” listed (in French, and not yet available). The book will be released May, 17th.

The EOS 650D/Rebel T4i will most probably have a 18.1MP sensor, DIGIC V image processor, improved ISO performance, built-in WiFi, a touchscreen and a new AF functionality for video recording. I always thought that the EOS 650D/T4i would be released for Photokina, but the EOS 650D book showing up at Amazon made me change my mind. I mean, next week there is NAB and Amazon shops list a book that will be released short after? Cannot be a coincidence. If true, this is a good time to check for EOS 600D/T3i deals.

NAB 2012 Canon rumors round-up

So, we are close to the beginning of NAB 2012, and rumors bout what Canon could and/or will announce are getting hotter.

It’s almost sure that Canon will announce “something new”, but what will it be? Most rumor-mills take for granted that Canon will announce a 4K DSLR. But that’s not all we can probably expect. See what I collected strolling around the Internet and evaluating information that was sent to me.
