[Rumor] New Tidbits About Canon’s Entry-Level Full Frame Camera (EOS 6D?)

The rumor is reported by NL. As you probably know, we expect Canon to announce an entry-level full frame DSLR (have a look here too) for Photokina in September 2012. The reported specs basically cover what I already reported before. The information I got in the past were naming an EOS 7D Mark II as the upcoming entry-level full frame camera, while NL is referring to a 6D. Whatever the name will be, I think it can be taken for granted that Canon is indeed working on such a camera (and maybe already testing prototypes), especially if you consider that Nikon is doing the same (there is a leaked image of the cam). ’nuff said, let’s have a look on the leaked specs (I hope this camera comes with a more advanced AF system):

  • Two different sensor specs received […] for a ‘cheaper’ FF DSLR.
  • One suggests an 18MP sensor and the other 22MP
    • Looks like straightforward remodelling of either the 1DX or 5D3 sensors
  • Other features:
    • Design closer to 7D than 5D3 (smaller and with flash)
    • 7D style AF system (19 pt) and VF LCD
    • 7D metering
    • Single Digic 5+
    • 3.9 fps
    • 3 inch LCD
    • 51200 max ISO
    • sub – $2000 price point at introduction

[Rumor] EOS M Full Specifications Leaked

Digicame-info posted what appear to be the real specs of Canon’s mirrorless camera, expected to be announced tomorrow. Looks like the Rebel T4i/650D sensor with its hybrid AF system (auto-focus through phase detection) is featured on the EOS M – good news for all of us that are into video. Hence, it can be assumed to a high degree of certainty that the EOS M will not have the sensor of the PowerShot G1 X: the EOS M most probably has an APS-C sized 18MP sensor, the same (?) as the Rebel T4i/650D. The EOS M will come with two Kit lens, the EF-M22mm STM and the EF-M18-55mm IS STM. The remaining specs below.

– APS-C CMOS sensor 18 million pixels
– The image processing engine DIGIC5
– Hybrid CMOS AF in combination with phase-contrast
– Video Servo AF, Servo AF, AF touch
– The range is equivalent ISO 25600 ISO100-12800, in the expansion
– To 30 seconds shutter speed is 1/4000, bulb, flash sync is 1/200 sec
– Second continuous shooting speed is 4.3 frames /
– 1.04 million dot LCD monitor 3.0-type wide, touch panel
– The media SD / SDHC / SDXC (corresponding UHS-I)
– Video is 1920×1080 30p/25p/24p, 1280×720 60p/50p, 640×480 30p/25p
Method – video compression MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, audio Linear PCM, MOV format
– Available in over 60 species of EF lens mount adapter EF-EOS M
– Hand-held Twilight mode synthesized by the continuous shooting at a shutter speed four with less camera shake
– HDR mode to synthesize three different exposure
– Multi-shot noise reduction function to reduce the noise by combining the four images
– Creative filters
– The size is x 66.5mm (width) 108.6mm (height) x 32.3mm (depth)
– The weight (body only) 262g, (including battery and memory card) 298g
– Kit lens EF-M22mm STM, EF-M18-55mm IS STM
– Comes with a mount adapter and EF-EOS M 90EX Speedlite kit of some

I expect the announcement tomorrow, July 23, around 06-07 AM London time (00:00 EST). Stay tuned as I will provide all the news in real time (pre-order links, specifications, and what ever is out there :-) ).

Thanks to an anonymous reader who sent me this image via email. After the images of the EOS M, the new EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens and the also new, Image Stabilized EF-M 18-55mm lens, we are able to provide an image of the external flash for Canon’s soon-to-be-announced (Monday, July 23rd) mirrorless system camera.

Stay tuned on Monday: I will cover the announcement, expected for 6-7 AM London time, providing all the new and information.

First image of the Canon 18-55mm lens for the new mirrorless camera (it means it’s an APS-C sensor camera!)

On top you can see the first picture ever posted of the new 18-55mm lens for the new Canon EOS M mirrorless system camera. It is also a confirmation that we are talking about a mirrorless camera with APS-C sensor.

Stay tuned on CanonWatch! The final Canon announcement is scheduled for next Monday at 6-7am London time! Be sure to be online at CanonWatch! We will blog live giving you all updates about news and reviews!

More Images Of Canon’s Mirrorless Camera Leaked

More images of Canon’s mirrorless camera (EOS M) and the new EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens , expected to be announced on Monday July 23. From the picture of the lens (below) you can see that it has a minimum focusing distance of 0.15m/0.48ft (macro). There are still no exact specifications regarding the camera. We know it has a new mount type (EF-M) and for the the being the most accredited rumors are saying it will have an APS-C sensor (still not sure about that). It’s around the corner! :-)
