Canon Patent: In Body Image Stabilization For EOS M Or PowerShot Camera

Canon Patent

After all those Canon patents referring to RF mount lenses, here is a different one: IBIS on a small camera body.

Canon patent application US20210105391 (USA) discusses In Body Image Stabilization (IBIS) for a small camera body. According to the drawings in the patent literature it’s either an EOS M camera or a PowerShot camera. IBIS coming to the EOS M system is already rumored. This patent seems to consolidate it.

Drawing seems to show an EOS M camera

This one looks more like a PowerShot camera

Canon Might Announce Two New Cameras….This Week!

Canon Rumors Canon Full Frame Mirrorless

Canon might announce two new cameras within this week. We have so far no idea about what Canon is going to announce.

It’s not clear what kind of cameras Canon is going to release. The new cameras are in a “new segment for the company“. However, the rumor also suggests that the cameras have an internal model number that’s similar to those usually used or PowerShot or EOS M cameras. And that’s not a new segment.

The cameras might also be remotely-controllable Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) HD cameras with a price tag around $4,000. Canon has some offering in this segment, so not sure how much this is a new segment.

Might also be one of Canon’s concept cameras.

Stay tuned, stay safe.

The Canon EOS M Is Not Going To Die, New Rumors Contradicting Old Ones

Canon Eos M50 Mark Ii Review

A few months ago a rather weird rumor surface from the interconnected rumor jungle: the Canon EOS M lineup is going to die this year.

A totally unrealistic rumor, as we pointed out. Moreover, one of our sources told us it is not going to happen. Now it appears the original source suggesting the imminent death of the EOS M system is also changing its mind.

The latest rumor claims that Canon is set to “pivot the EOS M system [in] a new direction”. Not only this, but Canon might also announce a new EOS M camera this year. Not sure what the “pivoting in a new direction” might mean but it definitely doesn’t sound as if the EOS M series will be put to death any time soon. 2021 might thus be the year we will eventually learn more about the future of the EOS M system.

Mind that the EOS M series is quite popular with amateurs. Why would Canon kill the EOS M system? The EOS M50 is a best seller since it was released, and the EOS M50 Mark II is following on its footsteps. Indeed, the whole EOS M series is ratjher popular. The EOS M50 is a top seller on the US and Japan market. A fact stated by Canon itself.

I don’t think Canon is so dumb to discontinue their best selling mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor as long as people wants to buy it in large figures.

Stay tuned, and stay safe.
