• 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… 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… Read More

  • 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 4096×2304) 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… Read More

  • 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… 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… Read More

  • Concept And Future Gear Shown Off At Canon Expo

    Canon’s invite-only, once-every-five-years Canon Expo is in full swing right now in New York, and although we’re not there, some excited camera lovers are, and there is some cool stuff on display. Here you can see a concept camera pulling a 4K image off of a 2/3″ sensor, via a crazy 20x zoom L lens. 7-140mm F/1.8-3.8! Geez, I don’t even want to think about what that… Read More

  • Canon's New CMOS Sensor Is 40 Times Bigger Than Others

    Exactly one week ago, Canon unveiled a pretty impressive 120 megapixel sensor, and today the company followed up with the announcement of “the world’s largest” CMOS sensor. Sized at 202 x 205 mm, the new sensor is 40 times bigger than the Canon CMOS sensors out there now. Read More

  • Canon Launches The EOS 60D, A Good Rebel T2i Replacement

    You might as well take your Rebel T2i back to the store, friends, because Canon just dropped the EOS 60D, a mid-range DSLR with RAW shooting, a swing-mounted LCD, and great video recording. Read More

  • Canon Packs 120 Megapixels Onto Sub-Full-Frame Sensor

    This is a bit insane. Canon has produced a sensor smaller outputting a ridiculous 120 megapixels, packed into an area smaller than a 35mm film frame. This is almost certainly mainly an R&D thing, however. Don’t expect a 120-megapixel camera any time soon. Read More

  • Another Canon Lens Mug! Want So Bad!

    What is it about lens mugs that gets me? Ever since we first saw that 70-200L thermos, I’ve had lens muggery on the mind. And now that classic Canon lens styling is in a more convenient mug form. It even comes with a lens cap lid! Read More

  • Canon G12 Leaked

    Looks like CNET Asia got a different press release from the one I got late last night. Theirs apparently had information pertaining to the not-announced G12, the latest in Canon’s line of compact manual cameras. Well, there’s no putting the cat back in the bag, especially when you have rumor sites ready to pounce and immortalize your error in a screenshot. Here’s what was… Read More

  • Another Late Night Canon Powershot Frenzy

    God damn it, Canon. Seriously. Every time I try to relax with a cold glass of juice*, you have to release a gaggle of point and shoots. You know I’m not going to pay close attention! Why not release them during the day?! All right. Let’s do this. Read More

  • Is This The Upcoming Canon PowerShot G12?

    Photokina, the gigantic camera tradeshow , is right around the corner and it’s nearly a tradition that Canon unveils the next G series Powershot at the event. CanonRumors just posted the image above, which might be the upcoming G12. Overall the body seems a bit smaller than the G11 primarily because of the deleted viewfinder and the flash now using a pop-up mechanism. Of course this could… Read More

  • Is This The Canon 60D?

    These spy shots appear to show the swivel-screen DSLR that’s been rumored for the past few months. We also hear that there’s a Canon event being scheduled internationally for August 26th, which tallies with previous rumors. Is it the 60D announcement? There’s no way to be sure, but I’m just going to act like I’m sure anyway. Yes! Read More

  • A Few Likely Canon 60D Specs

    Our usual source for unreleased (and possibly false) Canon info, Canon Rumors, has posted a few specs for the 60D that actually seem perfectly likely. The 60D is supposed to be a video-focused replacement for the 40D, and reports indicate it’s more than a rumor, and possibly hitting in early September. The specs quoted at Canon Rumors are limited but telling. Read More

  • Proof Of Existence Of Canon’s 60D May Have Leaked

    The Canon 60D is one of those ongoing gadget bugaboos that we have seen around for months, yet have no direct confirmation. This listing, found on image testers DxO Labs’ site, seems to indicate a 60D coming out soon. Previous rumors put it out in late August or early September, so this seems to coincide nicely with that.
