Ahead of Canon announcement: new leaked images, and more information about camera naming scheme

The Canon EOS M50 is named EOS Kiss M in Japan

A few days ahead of the announcement of Canon’s first 4K enabled MILC, a new SpeedLite, and two entry-level DSLRs, we can put order in the naming scheme Canon has chosen for their new gear (courtesy of Nokishita). We also have new images for your viewing pleasure.

  • The Canon EOS M50 (specifications) will be named EOS Kiss M in Japan (and Asia?). Two color options will be available, black and white. The kits will come with these lenses: 15-45mm, 18-150mm, and two double zoom kits. Shipment is expected for March 23, 2018
  • The Rebel T7 has this name in the US. It’s named EOS 2000D in Europe, EOS 1500D in China, and EOS Kiss X90 in Japan (Asia?). Why an entry-level camera needs four different monikers is sort of a mystery to me. May be to counter grey market import flows. There will be a body only option, and one with a kit lens. Shipping expected March 23, 2018.
  • As for the time of writing it’s not sure if the EOS 4000D (EOS 3000D in China) will be released in Japan.

Canon will also release an EOS M100 limited kit in pink by early April 2018 (Japan only, sorry for pink fans). The SpeedLite 470EX-AI is expected to ship late April 2018.

Canon will announce the new gear on February 25/26. Stay tuned.

Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI Specifications Leaked

Speedlite 470EX-AI

Specifications of the upcoming Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI leaked at Digicame-Info (and are machine translated).

  • Auto intelligent (AI) bounce mode of “Full Auto” and “Semi Auto”.With an electric head rotation device, the 470 EX – AI automatically determines the optimal bounce position eliminating unnecessary shadows.
  • The guide number is 47 (105 mm). It is driven by 4 AA batteries.
  • It covers the field angle of 24 – 105 mm. Wide panel (14 mm adapter) allows light to spread wide. Clip-on bounce adapter that makes light more soft.
  • Equipped with a dot matrix display that can display more detailed information.
  • The setting can be quickly changed with the shortcut button and the controller wheel.
  • EOS 8D Mark II, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 6D Mark II, EOS 7D Mark II, EOS 80D, EOS 77D, EOS 800D, EOS 760D, EOS 750D, EOS 200D, EOS M50.
  • Size 74.6 x 130.4 x 105.1 mm. Weight 385 g (excluding batteries).

So, what is about the “AI bounce” feature of the Speedlite 470EX-AI. If I got the machine translation right, the flash automatically sets the appropriate bounce angle.

And, btw, have you seen the EOS 8D Mark II in the list above? Most likely a translation error. Or is an EOS 80D Mark II coming? Unlikely :) The EOS 5D Mark II is listed two times, so I guess machine translation mistake.

This is the Canon EOS 2000D, images and specifications

Canon EOS 2000DImages and a first set of specifications of the upcoming Canon EOS 2000D leaked at Nokishita.

  • 24.1 million pixels APS-C
  • DIGIC 4+
  • Full HD video
  • 3.0 type liquid crystal
  • ISO: 100-6400
  • Wi-Fi installed
  • Size: 129.0 × 101.3 × 77.6 mm
  • Weight: 475 g

The EOS 2000D is clearly more upmarket than the also leaked EOS 4000D.

The Canon EOS 4000D and EOS 2000D are the monikers for the EU market. The new Canon DSLRs will respectively be named EOS 1500D and EOS 3000D in China (and likely in the rest of Asia). The reason for this is probably known only to Canon’s sophisticated market strategists. However, we thought there were three new entry level DSLRs coming but it turns out it’s two new DSLRs (most likely).

Announcement is expected for next week. Stay tuned.
