Canon EOS M3 mirrorless compact coming to the US in October

Canon unveiled the third generation EOS M digital camera back in February and, for a time, it seemed that the camera maker was content not to bring it to the US. Half a year later, it has changed course. The new, or not so new, EOS M3 is ready to go stateside, though it won't be until another two months before advanced amateurs will be able to get their hands on one. Along with the EOS M3, three new EF-M interchangeable lenses will also be available to extend the camera's range.

Canon warns EOS 5D DSLR main mirror could detach

Canon warns EOS 5D DSLR main mirror could detach

Canon has issued a service advisory warning EOS 5D users that a problem with adhesive could result in the main mirror detaching. The camera's available servicing period comes to an end this upcoming September, making it important that users get the problem fixed soon if it has occurred. The issue itself stems from the adhesive potentially deteriorating over time, causing the mirror to possibly come loose and obviously making the camera essentially useless (if you like to the use the viewfinder, that is).

Canon XC10 ‘hybrid’ 4k camera features 1″ sensor

Canon has taken the wraps off its new Canon XC10, a hybrid-like camera that resembles a DSLR, but that is able to shoot high-quality 4k video footage akin to what you'd get with a dedicated camcorder with accessories to aid. This gives photographers with a videographer slant the best of both worlds, and does so in a relatively compact and sleek body. Best of all, the XC10 features a 1-inch sensor, providing better image quality than what you'd get from a comparable camera sporting a smaller image sensor.
