Canon Set To Announce A New Camera Soon (PowerShot or EOS M)

Canon Rumors Eos R Full Frame Mirrorless

Canon will soon announce a new Camera soon, likely next week.

For the time being we do not know if Canon is going to announce a new PowerShot camera (the PowerShot G7 X Mark III would be a candidate) or a replacement for the EOS M5 or EOS M50. Replacement for the EOS 80D or EOS 7D Mark II are less likely. Don’t expect Canon’s upcoming high resolution EOS R camera until Fall 2019.

More to come soon, stay tuned.

Canon Powershot SX70 HS Review (ePhotozine)

Powershot SX70

ePhotozine reviewed the Canon Powershot SX70 HS, and they are not very fond of it. From the conclusion:

The Canon Powershot SX70 HS is an update to the SX60, adding 4K video, and increasing the price. This makes it competitive with other cameras, such as the Panasonic Lumix FZ82, or Nikon Coolpix B700, in terms of features, but for some reason, the Canon is almost double the price. Due to this, you’ve got to be a big Canon fan to justify the purchase of this camera. We found the camera frustrating at times due to focusing issues to do with the shutter release button, and we also missed shots at times due to focus. 

With 4K UHD video recording and a microphone socket, the camera may be appealing to those who want video recording with a lot of zoom. For everyone else, we’d probably just get the FZ82, it’s practically half the price. If the price of the SX70 HS drops substantially then it could be an option to look at. Read the review…

The price for the Canon Powershot SX70 HS will most likely drop within the next 6 months.

Hackers enjoy. Canon is releasing a new version of its Software Development Kit (SDK) and Application Programming Interface (API) for selected cameras. The first camera to be supported will be the PowerShot SX70 HS. The EOS Digital SDK is already available for download.

Press release:

London, UK, Wednesday 2nd January 2019 — Canon Europe, a world leader in digital imaging solutions, announces the release of its new camera API package, offering a range of resources to developers. The combined EOS Digital software development kit (SDK) and all-new Camera Control API (CCAPI) create unique opportunities for developers and software engineers to take advantage of select Canon cameras and lenses, launching with the PowerShot SX70 HS.

Many developers have already benefited from Canon SDKs, enabling them to integrate Canon cameras and lenses in their solutions and control them remotely, wired via USB. Such applications include photo booths, robotic / automated units, event photography and recording, mass portrait / passport and photogrammetry systems.
