    Amazon's 'best of 2007' list

    In case you were wondering who the best sellers for 2007 were on Amazon then I have some news for you. The Nintendo Wii curb stomped everyone else in ‘Video Games’. The Canon PowerShot A570IS was the best selling ‘electronics’ gadget and the Nokia “Internet Tablet PC” championed the ‘Computers’ section, though it’s unclear which model… Read More

    Time to celebrate, Canon!

    Canon has quite a bit to celebrate this year. Not only is it Canon’s 70th birthday and 20th anniversary of the launch of the EOS line of SLR cameras, but they’ve reached a rather remarkable milestone. The whole of the EOS line (film and DSLR) has passed the 30-million mark in terms of production. That’s a pretty big deal if you ask me. Keep it up, Canon. You’ve got some… Read More

  • Rumor: Canon dropping new DSLR?

    Rumor: Canon dropping new DSLR?

    According to the Swedes and what they’ve interpreted from the Swedish VP of Canon, Robert Westin, Canon will be introducing a new DSLR on January 24th, which is a week before PMA, in case you wanted to know. I haven’t been following this rumor all too close since I’m a Pentax man, but new DLSRs from any of the big boys are always fun. The PB thinks it’ll be a replacement… Read More

    CrunchDeals: Canon Powershot SD430 with Wi-Fi

    Could be a mistake, but you better jump on it before this deal runs out. Amazon is offering the 5-megapixel Canon Powershot SD430 with Wi-Fi and 3x optical zoom for only $150. The retail price is $500 so you’re saving a lot of money on this one. You also get a 12-month photo calendar from Shutterfly if you purchase before the 15th. Amazon Read More

    Canon takes the hassle out of burning Blu-ray discs

    Not that a lot of people even get the chance to have that hassle, but Canon’s always been a forward-looking company. These camera-to-disc recorders are nothing new; it’s been a way for mom and pop to put their DV footage onto DVDs for years, but this sucker is next generation. It takes regular MPEG-2 SD footage like the rest of ‘em, but now it also takes HD in the form of the… Read More

    Ho ho ho! All of you folks looking for the 5D Mark II might be pleasantly surprised to find out that Capture One added the camera to their website’s error reporting page, suggesting that someone had lunch with someone at Canon maybe like last week and that someone heard that other someone say “Yeah, don’t put the 5D Mark II on your site yet, dude. God. The waitress is… Read More

    Popular Science's Low-light DSLR camera comparison

    I’m a fan of Canon DSLR cameras. When I’ve needed some really good-looking shots, they’ve never let me down. That’s why I was happy to see a 40D on this Popular Science list of the best low-light DSLR cameras, along with the Sony Alpha A700 and the Nikon D3. It’s not the most exhaustive list, but it smartly addresses the differences between the three cameras in an… Read More

    Canon Adds Two More To A-series

    Are we done yet? No. Crap. Nothing new in the feature department for the two A-series PowerShots that we haven’t already heard about today. The A650 IS is a quirky 12.1-megapixel camera with 6x optical zoom lens, 21 shooting modes, and vari-angle 2.5-inch LCD. Huh? We’ll get to that in a second. The A720 boasts 8-megapixel resolution and shoots VGA video. Read More

    Canon's Legion Of ELPHs Increased By Two

    870 in Black This getting to be a little tiresome, Canon. I don’t want to write about your new cameras anymore. Someone call the waaambulance. The PowerShot ELPH line is getting even better with the addition of the SD950 IS and SD870 IS digis. The 950 is a full-body titanium 12.1-megapixel stud with a 3.7x optical zoom and 2.5-inch LCD.

    Canon PowerShot G9: DSLR Disguised As Point-And-Shoot

    Strap in because this isn’t the last digital camera Canon has announced for today. We’re about half way there. The PowerShot G9 is being targeted towards consumers who want a DSLR in a point-and-shoot form factor. That’s what all they say, right? Except for the fact that Canon is offering RAW and RAW+JPEG shooting modes on this 12.1-megapixel PowerShot. The G9 also incorporates… Read More

    Canon Officially Announces EOS 40D

    It’s all true except for one minor detail. The highly anticipated DSLR for prosumers is here, sort of. It looks like the September 20 release might be a little off. The EOS 40D is scheduled for an early September delivery. The body alone is $1,299 while a kit version with Canon’s EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM zoom lens will cost you $1,499.

    Canon Updates Firmware For EOS-1D Mark III

    If there are any EOS-1D Mark III owners in the audience then please take heed on this firmware upgrade. If the errors on the Italian and Chinese menu screens put you into a fit of rage then immediately upgrade to v1.1.0. I’m not sure who would get annoyed with the camera not starting up properly when the battery is inserted, but this alleviates that problem as well. The look of images on the… Read More

    Canon iVIS HG10 High-Def HDD Camcorder

    Passively watching HD content is for the dinosaurs. The *really* cool people film their own HD content, and judging by recent releases, such recording is inching closer to the mainstream. Canon’s the latest company to get involved and its iVIS HG10 one-ups Panasonic’s efforts by having a built-in hard drive, 40GB to be exact.
