Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT Replacement Might Be Announced Soon, Report

Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT

Canon might soon announce a replacement for the Speedlite 600EX II-RT, a new rumor suggests.

Since the Speedlite 600EX II-RT saw a price drop in January, the possibility of a replacement was on the table. Apparently the replacement has been delayed along with both the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6, and should be announced together with the R5 and R6 in the next months.

While there are no rumored specifications, the source of the rumor states that the upcoming Speedlite will be a “big step forward”.

Stay safe, stay tuned.

Canon Patent For High Power Speedlite Flash With Air Cooling

Canon Patent

After the Canon patent application for a lens with built in vacuum cleaner, here is another interesting patent application filed by Canon.

Canon patent application 2019-185021 (Japan) discusses a high power flash unit with a built-in air cooling system. Air is sucked into the flash unit, passes through or around the flash head (the part that gets hottest) and is then put out. Effective cooling system.

An object of the present invention is to provide a lighting device capable of protecting a member related to light emission from heat associated with light emission.  A light source, a first optical member that transmits light emitted from the light source, and a light source that transmits light emitted from the light source are disposed between the light source and the first optical member. The second optical member and the air sucked from the first space, which is the inner space including the light source, on the light source side of the second optical member, and the first optical member and the second optical member. An air blowing mechanism that sends the air to a second space that is a space between the optical members.
