    Canon Launches New Powershots, We Write Post About Them

    Have you ever wondered what it looks like when a camera company releases a barrel full of new cameras on the evening following the Super Bowl? You’re about to find out. Because Canon, AKA Sunday night ruiners #1, have done this thing. Because this is when we all shop for cameras — right after returning semi-comatose to our homes and passing out after a day of wings and lite beer. Let… Read More

  • Canon Increments DSLR Line With New T3i And T3

    Canon Increments DSLR Line With New T3i And T3

    Compact DSLR video has been made slightly more crowd-friendly with Canon’s latest cameras, the T3i and T3. The former is clearly a direct successor to the T2i, which we reviewed here, and the T3 is a somewhat downgraded version of the same. Details, sweet details, follow. The T3i and T3 also have aliases, as per the Canon usual: 600D and 1100D respectively. And as usual, you’d expect… Read More

    Canon 600D (AKA T3i) In Korean Agency Listing Suggests Imminent Launch

    We heard a while back that Canon might be doing a serious refresh of its lineup soon, and that the most likely place would be the CP+ photo show in Japan coming up in about a week. I'd say 2011 will likely be a shake-up year for Canon, but don't expect them to roll everything out at once. A new compact DSLR is certainly due, though; the T2i came out about a year back. Which is why this listing at… Read More

  • Firmware For Canon T2i To Allow 4K Recording On 1/1/11

    Firmware For Canon T2i To Allow 4K Recording On 1/1/11

    This is pretty cool, though let's all just admit right off the bat that the limitations are pretty major as well. This custom 3rd-party firmware is set to put out a release on 1/1/11 that will enable 4K recording (that's 4096x2304) on the T2i, which is normally limited to 1080p. The trouble? At that resolution, you can only record for six seconds. Read More

  • In The Era Of The Connected Camera, The Point & Shoot Commits Seppuku

    In The Era Of The Connected Camera, The Point & Shoot Commits Seppuku

    The big brand camera companies are committing seppuku in front of our eyes. It's fascinating. Last week, I bought a brand new Canon S95 camera. It's a great point & shoot. Maybe the best out there right now. It captures beautiful 10-megapixel images. It's great in low-light. It's fast. And it shoots HD video. I anticipate I'll take about 5 percent of my pictures with it in the coming… Read More

  • Canon Applies For Patent On New 24-70 F/2.8L Lens

    Canon Applies For Patent On New 24-70 F/2.8L Lens

    How unexpected. The 24-70 F/2.8L is one of Canon's best and most popular lenses, but it's been around since 2002, and although it's still an excellent piece of kit, it seems that Canon feels it could use a bit of a reworking. They've applied for a patent, made public just yesterday, for what appears to be a new version of the versatile lens. Read More

  • Video: Canon Shows Off Cross Media Station Device That Charges Camera Via Induction

    Is this magic? That's my cute way of opening the discussion of the Canon Cross Media Station. It's an inductive charging station. That means you put your camera right on top of the thing and it charges. Fun! Read More

    Canon Printers Scan Print Jobs For "Sensitive Material"

    Canon's Uniflow technology will read print jobs sent to it and flag documents containing words deemed unsafe or insecure by admins. Here's how it works: The server will email the administrator a PDF copy of the document in question if a user attempts to do so. The system can optionally inform the user by email that their attempt has been blocked, but without identifying the keyword in question… Read More

    Hands-Off Comparison: Nikon D7000 And P7000 Vs. Canon 60D And G12

    Canon and Nikon, the photography world’s Hatfields and McCoys, have both recently released new DSLRs and compact manuals. While all of them are certainly excellent cameras, they’re clearly gunning for each other and a quick perusal of all their specs seems in order. Read More

    Canon G12 Price Leaked

    Canon cannot catch a break, at least someone in their company can't keep their lips sealed, because now the price has been outed for Canon's new replacement for the G11, the Canon G12. Remember the features for the G12 are 10 megapixels, 5x optical zoom with image stabilization, 2.8-inch swivel LCD, HD video and an HDR mode. The features for the T1i are 15 megapixels, 18-55 no IS, 3-inch LCD, HD… Read More
