Latest Canon Mirrorless Rumor

 

canonrumors summed up what’s murmured about Canon’s upcoming mirrorless ILC projects to be announced in 2012 (think Photokina). Something will come for sure, since you can’t hardly believe that the PowerShot G1 X (click here for a cool G1 X deal) is the only answer Canon was able to give to the raising mirrorless system camera phenomenon. That’s what’s said we can can expect by Canon in the next months.

 

  • Two Cameras
  • G1 X Sensor Size
  • APS-C a possibility in one camera
  • 14 & 24 megapixels
  • EF compatibility, but not EF mount.
  • EVF on one camera
  • 3-5 Lenses announced at launch.

 

If you think Canon’s light leak is a big deal…

…you should have a look at this post at engadget:

Okay Nikon owners, stop laughing at your 5D Mark III cronies for their leaky problem. That might be a drip in the pail next to your own worries — namely, possible “lock-up”, focus and viewfinder hitches on your D800 or D4. Nikon verified that a “small number” of units of both DSLRs can lock up and become unresponsive, but until there’s a permanent patch you can prevent this by disabling both highlight and RGB histogram displays. The company also verified that a “run” of D800s is suffering from a viewfinder bug, although it has yet to confirm another emerging problem with autofocus in some units, which apparently requires a factory fix. So, if you’ve noticed any of this with your pricey new D800, or really pricey D4, your best bet might be to reach out to your Nikon repair center post-haste. And don’t let the Canon guys see you.

EOS 5D3 vs EOS C300 vs RED Scarlet at low light

How do the EOS 5D Mark III ($3,499), the EOS C300 ($15,999) and RED’s Scarlet (the pixel champion! <$10,000) compare one to the others? Good question, and over at nofilmschool they tried to answer the question. And what would be better than a bike race shot at night? Spoiler: The C300 beats them all, much better performance at low light (not really a surprise). However, given the big price difference, the EOS 5D Mark III performance is worth of consideration.
