It’s always funny when rumor sites discredit their own rumors. What a fancy game!

The same sites which previously claimed the not yet released Canon EOS R1 and Canon EOS R5 Mark II might have a global shutter, are now stating that an ” extremely reliable source” told them they will not have a global shutter. Guess there will be enough time before announcement to switch back to “might have a gobal shutter” for one last time. Just to make people curious, of course:

It was suggested that readout speeds will be good enough to make the advantages of a global shutter less prominent, while maintaining the expected image quality in the next generation prosumer and flagship camera bodies. The same source claims that Canon’s next image sensors will have bigger advancements in performance than we’re used to from a new generation of Canon consumer sensors.

Don’t waste your time with rumors, go out snapping pics instead.

Canon Researching A Retro Designed Camera Was Just BS (maybe)

Canon

As most of us thought, the rumor that Canon was actively conducting market research to see how customers would react to a retro camera, was, well, barely more than crap.

asobinet.com got intel from a source stating that it was nothing more than “communication with fans”. The original message (see image on top) on Weibo seems to have been:

If you could recreate any old camera, which one would you like to recreate? We look forward to your participation. A limited gift bag will be given away through a lottery.

Market research or just “communication with fans”? But there is a “but”. At the end of asobinet’s post there is this:

After the rumors started circulating, it seems that the company has started discussing the possibility. I don’t know, maybe that’s a good thing. “Everything depends on official information,” a friend said after the meeting.

So, how to interpret this? After someone made the rumor circulating, Canon decided to give it a try?

Canon Set To Announce Three Lenses On November 2nd, 2023?

I like the timing with which some rumors are spread to the world. First we had the suggestion that Canon might release a new inexpensive telephoto lens next week. Now there is more. Read on.

A new rumor has it, that Canon might announce three new RF lenses on November, 2, 2024. Says the source of the rumor about the three lenses:

  • Canon RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS (Still no word on whether it’s USM or STM)
  • Canon RF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM
  • The third lens is one of three that we have been told are coming “soon”, but we haven’t confirmed which one will come on November 2.

So maybe three lenses , maybe not. If the rumor is true, expect to see leaked images very soon.

Spend your time with actual photography, and less with rumors ;-)

Canon RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS Announcement On 11/2/2023?

It seems Canon is set to announce a new inexpensive telephoto lens, the Canon RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS.

This is going to be a non-L lens, i.e. a consumer lens. Despite that, it is rumored that the lens will come with white painting, usually reserved for Canon’s top tier telephoto lenses. And there is more: the lens is rumored to feature DO elements (diffractive optics). Given that we are talking about a non-L lens, that seems to be a bit of a stretch. Pricing of the RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS is rumored to be above $2000, although not by much.

There have been a few patent applications that might refer to this lens.

Stay tuned.
