Canon Rumors notes new rumors that suggest Canon will use a new, dedicated sensor for its upcoming mirrorless camera. As rumored, the upcoming full frame mirrorless won’t use the sensor from the 5D Mark IV or 6D Mark II. Additionally, we’re not expected to hear official word from Canon until Photokina 2018, which is slated for next August.
What’s on your wishlist for a full frame camera from Canon? What’s the sweet spot in resolution for this camera?
B&H has the Canon EOS C200 cinema camera in stock and now shipping. The C200 is a balancing act between the entry-level C100 Mark II and the broadcast and cinema standard C300 Mark II. Notably, the C200 can record Canon’s Cinema RAW Light in-camera to the single CFast card slot. Cinema RAW Light is available in 4K 60p/50p at 10 bit and 4K 30p/25p/24p at 12 bit.

Canon will, of course, unveil a new addition to the popular 7D product line – likely to be called the Canon 7D Mark III. The most recent timeline suggests this will happen in 2018.
As we inch closer toward an actual release date, we’ll surely hear more and more rumors about such a camera. Today, we have a rumored (if somewhat suspect) list of key specifications for the upcoming 7D Mark III. Check it out below. [Read more…]
Canon has announced the development of MM100-WS Multi-Purpose Camera. It’s incredibly compact with a body size of approximately 1.57 in (w) x 1.57 in (h) x .85 in (d), which is about the same size as the GoPro HERO5 Session. The Canon camera is even a little thinner though.
Canon is positioning the MM100-WS as a solution for a variety of industries. It suggests professional and industrial applications, such as monitoring in narrow spaces, piping inspections and automotive industry, among others. It will be dust and moisture resistant and can capture images in very low light, considering it only needs 1 lux of illumination.
No word yet on pricing or availability; however, I expect to see the camera up close at PhotoPlus next month.
Canon has announced three new tilt-shift lenses in its professional line – a 50mm, 90mm and 135mm lens. These are the first macro tilt-shift lenses from Canon.
The Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro lens, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro lens and TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro lens, all of which should provide improved image quality over previous models, along with other improvements. [Read more…]
DP Review has published its in-depth review of the new Canon 6D Mark II. It praises the camera for its high image quality capability; however, it finds that the 6D Mark II falls well short of the competition:
The only thing that makes the EOS 6D II stand out is Dual Pixel AF, which turns out is only of real value in this camera when shooting single shots of slow-moving subjects or HD video.
I still want to give the camera a go myself but the dynamic range results are incredibly dissapointing to me. I just expected more out of this camera, which seems to echo DP Review’s sentiments in its review. You can read the full review here at DP Review.
B&H has some configurations of the new Canon 6D Mark II now in stock. The 6D Mark II is Canon’s most affordable full frame camera, featuring a 26.2MP sensor and a 45-point AF system, among other solid features. Kit options include either the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens or the EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
