• Replica Nikon Lens Mug Now Available

    No idea if this is an actual licensed product, but it certainly looks cool. I’ll admit, when then the Canon mugs came out last winter I was jealous. I’m not a Canon guy, so I just resigned myself to the fact that I’d probably never have one. Then some popped up on ebay, but in a really limited run. I missed out on those too. Read More

  • Canon exec confirms they are working on small form-factor high-quality cameras

    Masaya Maeda, Canon’s head of the Image Communication Products, shared more than just sales numbers in an interview today. On the question of whether Canon was going to be attempting to compete with smaller mirrorless (so-called EVIL) cameras like those using the M4/3 system, he had this to say: It’s not a question of whether or not you have a mirror. There is a consumer need… Read More

  • Canon announces two new CanoScan LiDE scanners

    In the market for a scanner? Canon just announced they have two new scanners in their Canoscan LiDE product line coming out later this year. Read More

  • Canon 60D to be revealed in August?

    There were some rumors swirling that the mythical 60D, supposedly a prosumer DSLR situated between the T2i and 7D, would be announced tomorrow. That doesn’t seem to be the case after all, but with all this chatter, when else could it be? Oh I don’t know, how about at Canon’s once-every-five-years Canon Expo event, happening September 2nd-3rd? If I had any money, that’s… Read More

  • Canon develops X-ray- and pain-free mammogram device

    We don’t cover medical technology here on CrunchGear usually, but one of the things Canon is currently working on in that area sounds pretty interesting. According to Japanese daily The Nikkei, the company has developed a machine that helps detecting breast cancer without using X-rays (it’s estimated [PDF] that in the US alone, some 250,000 women are diagnosed with breast… Read More

  • OLEDs are the future: Canon buries development of SEDs

    Remember SEDs? Those surface-conduction electron-emitter displays were around for quite a while, competing with FEDs (field emission displays) until Sony decided to pull the plug on the latter back in March last year. That gave one company, Canon, enough of a push to continue to believe in SED. Canon even filed new patents on SED technology in the US in May 2009. But that’s over now… Read More

  • Canon's imageFORMULA P-150M portably scans documents into your Mac, no lie

    Does your Mac need a new scanner? (I think I’ve had the same scanner for like 10 years. The Mac driver is still for PPC processors, that’s how old it is.) I ask because I needed a fun way to segue into a brief discussion of the Canon imageFORMULA P-150M, which, as you may have surmised, is a scanner that works with your Mac. Read More

  • Evernote coming to Canon scanners

    The Evernote news just doesn’t stop, does it? Hot on the heels of Evernote integration with Lexmark printers and Fujitsu scanners comes word that Evernote will be integrating with the new P-150 scanners from Canon. Read More

  • Watch House? Like gadgets? Tonight's episode was the one shot on a 5D mk II

    I heard about this a little while back when they had just wrapped. The director was excited to have shot an episode (the season finale) on the 5D mk II and was answering questions about it, a bit inexpertly I think, no doubt to the chagrin of the DP who actually shot the episode. The episode is airing tonight at 8PM tonight on FOX — watch it with your friends and then say “oh… Read More

  • Review: Canon Rebel T2i DSLR camera

    Short version: An outstanding consumer DSLR and liberating video recorder, the T2i is a powerhouse media device in a small and relatively affordable package. What I think of as killer features, however, may not be viewed as such by the buying population at large. Read More

  • If you're going to scan, scan right with the CanoScan 9000F

    Let’s be honest: scanning has become a necessary evil. But as long as you’re doing what has to be done, you may as well do it right. I got decent results scanning 35mm film with an old bargain scanner, but if you’re planning on re-printing them (or re-printing prints, or what have you), you want the highest resolution possible. The 9000F will do up your film at a massive… Read More

  • Canon 5D mk III rumored to ship in 2011

    It looks like the popularity of Canon’s full-frame DSLR (and powerful, but flawed video camera) is enough to warrant another sequel. While some would say that cheaper, but equally capable cropped-sensor cameras like the 7D represent a better value, the 5D has its own charm and I’m sure Canon will be capitalizing on that — next year, if Vincent Laforet is to be believed.

  • Sweet Canon AE-1 hack makes this classic film SLR all-digital

    Greatest thing of all time? It’s at least in the running. Some very dedicated Canon lover (and DIYer) has put the guts from a modern Canon digital into the a hollowed-out AE-1, one of the wonderful old metal bodies from the early 80s. I learned to shoot on its elder sibling, the FTb, and I still love to just hold it my hands as a reminder of how things were once built. If only I could… Read More

  • JOBO announces updated two new photoGPS models

    Geotagging is pretty popular these days, but for the most part you have to buy an additional hardware. JOBO makes one such device, the photoGPS, that’s been around for a while. They just announced two new versions, photoGPS 2 and the photoGPS 4. The new models offer improved reception, battery life, and storage. All in all a worthy successor to their original product.

  • DPReview's Canon T2i review arrives

    I’ve been looking forward to this camera for quite a while, and although I’ll be reviewing it later, it won’t be quite to the level of DPReview’s 30-page monster. Flagship cameras like this one get the royal treatment from the big photo sites, and the T2i is nothing if not a flagship camera. Read More

  • The Canon 5D mk II 2.0.4 firmware fixes the mess left by 2.0.3

    The 5D mk II 2.0.3 firmware was supposed to be the end-all solution for the Canon super camera. But it wasn’t. It caused more issues not worth the enhanced movie mode it added. Canon of course of pulled the firmware from its site cause many 5D mk II owners to cry a little. Because, as everyone knows, Canon owners are notoriously emotional unlike the cool and collected Nikon crowd. But… Read More

  • Uh-ohs! Canon's 5D update pulled from e-shelves

    Well, looks like that Canon 5D mk II update that was released a couple days ago has itself a couple faults. Seems that if you set sound recording to manual while using a C* dial setting, then turn the camera off, it’ll render your camera unable to record audio at all. There are two solutions: don’t install the update until they fix it, or set sound recording to auto. We hope you… Read More

  • .canon: Canon wants to establish its own top-level domain

    Megalomania or genius marketing move? Canon seriously takes aim at becoming the world’s first company with its own generic top-level domain (gTLD), namely “.canon”. The new domain would join the likes of .com, .edu, .gov, .org, etc. (Wikipedia has the full list). The Japanese electronics giant announced [press release in English] its plan to acquire the rights for the domain… Read More
