Canon Set To Announce A New Speedlite Flash And The Powershot SX60 HS IS For Photokina?

Canon Speedlite 430EX II

I have been told that Canon might announce a new Speedlite for Photokina 2014. The Speedlite that might get substituted could be the 430EX II (introduced in 2007). No more information nor specs, unfortunately.

And there were various mentions that Canon might eventually announce the Powershot SX60 HS IS for Photokina 2014, the long overdue replacement for the popular Powershot SX50 HS IS (price & specs). The SX60 HS is rumored since a while. It was rumored to be announced in Spring, then in Summer 2014, and now the rumors point to Photokina 2014. So far no rumor got it right :-) I got no specs this time. Rumors in the past suggested a 60x zoom (with some specs), then a 100x zoom (there is a patent pointing in this direction). A zoom beyond 60x seems plausible to me.

New source(s), take everything with a grain of salt, as usual.

A note to the sources: please let me know if you have interesting news and rumors. You can communicate with me anonymously via this form or write me an email. Thanks!
