The rumors I reported about in the last weeks are getting more consistent. A few days ago CanonWatch broke the news about a possible announcement at the end of May or beginning of June of a mirrorless system camera. Now more information about such an announcement seem to have leaked. What can we expect Canon to announce in June? The Rebel T4i/EOS 650D and a mirrorless system camera. Both were expected for Photokina in September. Now it looks like they are around the corner. In September we will probably see a new EOS 7D and a second mirrorless camera. Stay tuned!
Update: these are the rumored specs of the next EOS 7D:
Advanced AF system like the 5D Mark III
3.2 inch OLED screen
Wireless flash control E-TTL III
For the time being, the PowerShot G1 X is Canon’s only attempt to jump on the mirrorless bandwagon. It’s a wonderful camera with an outstanding lens, but it’s a fixed lens. And that’s not what most of us were expecting. So, let’s wait what will happen in June!
canonrumors once more is saying that the Rebel T4i/EOS 650D will be announced by Canon very soon. Nothing new on the specs front, but a new auto-focus system is named. Could this be in relation with the Canon AF patent I reported about?? I was the only one to report about this patent. Now rumors say that the T4i/650D will sport a new AF system for video. However, based on what I understood from the patent, it would make perfectly sense for video recording. The T4i/650D is also said to have a touchscreen. I am very curious. Read more after the break.
Reported by northlight-images, the EOS 650D could be announced by mid May. No news about the specs (improved 18MP & Digic 5, more details here). The “EOS 650 for Dummies” book (in French) is still in offer at various Amazon shops (Amazon UK, Amazon France, Amazon Germany and Amazon Canada, the last one saying it will be available starting from May, 7).
