Canon Announces Fall Products

Photokina 2010 is coming and Canon has announced their fall product lineup, a new top-end entry-level camera in the EOS 60D, as well as 4 new L lenses, including 2 super-telephotos and a Fisheye zoom, and a pair of new teleconverters. There are some definite highs, a few interesting if puzzling decisions, and a bunch of price tags that could make even a deep pocket book a few pounds lighter.

Canon Developes 120 Megapixel APS-H Sensor

Canon announced today that they’ve developed a 120MP (that’s a 13,280 x 9,184 pixel image) APS-H format sensor that has a laundry list of features.

Canon’s Safety Shift

Safety shift has existed in some form as far back as the original EOS 1D. Its options have changed slightly over the years and though varying cameras but the intent is the same.

An Atta-boy to Canon USA’s Service Center

Rumors Speak of a Larger Sensor in the EOS 7D. Could it be done?

A few days ago the specs were leaked for the next Canon small format camera, the EOS 7D. Since then the rumor mills have been running rampant with the news. What raised some concern for me was that the camera would carry an 18 megapixel APS-C sensor. More pixels in a tiny sensor does not […]

Canon EOS 1D Next, Rumors and a Rant

I hate reading the rumors and rumor sites, they’re like a train wreck, horrible but so very hard to to look away from. The rumor mill seems pretty consistent on the perspective that the next EOS 1D will be an APS-H camera, and why not Canon’s own Chuck Westfall mentioned that Canon is committed to […]
