Canon has announced a new version of the EOS 7D DSLR camera that adds in a strange feature for users that some will find useful. The camera is at its core a basic EOS 7D with a few added features that prevent people from messing around with your settings.
The PowerShot G12 from Canon has been rumored for a little while now, and specifications had been part of that from the get-go. An optical viewfinder was one of those attributes, but according to a photograph of the rumored device, apparently a few things have changed since its last rumor. Delivered to Canon Rumors, which you can tell the main focus of that site, this is what the new Canon PowerShot G12 reportedly looks like now.
Late last year we reviewed the cool Canon EOS 7D DSLR camera and liked the cam quite a bit. If you have your own 7D, you may have noticed a couple issues with the camera. The good news is that Canon has released a new firmware that fixes those issues.
Canon's head of Image Communication Products, Masaya Maeda, has revealed that Nikon isn't the only company looking at a new high-end compact camera. Speaking as Canon increased their sales forecasts, Maeda confirmed that the company is looking at a new compact camera that could be a mini-DSLR; "It's not a question of whether or not you have a mirror," he told reporters, "there is a consumer need for good-quality cameras to be made smaller."
If you like your Canon DSLR but are intrigued by the ability to take 3D pictures a new lens from Loreo called the Stereo Lens-in-a-cap promises to let you keep your cam and add 3D capability. Granted, the lens may well be the ugliest accessories that you well ever attach to your DSLR.
Canon has been showing off its vision of the future of the photography, and when they name a concept the Wonder Camera you have to realise they're aiming high. According to Canon's crystal-ball gazers, one day in the not too distant future we'll have junked our regular DSLRs and replaced them with a single camera that, thanks to high-end optics, can shoot both extreme zoom and extreme macro images; gizmag shot a video demo of the camera, which will also apparently have a massively high resolution sensor and be shooting video all the time rather than a series of stills.
It's now been a day since the festivities of your Fourth of July adventures should have ended, but considering today was a "bank holiday," we wouldn't be too surprised to hear that you're still pretty preoccupied with other activities. But, if you're reading this, then you must know what's really important. Right? Right. So, with that out of the way, welcome to tonight's edition of The Daily Slash. In the Best of R3 Media, we've got a Charm from Motorola, a Gravity Phone, and some good news for one lucky customer who Intercepted a device. And then in the Dredge 'Net, we've got quick chargers for electric cars on the horizon, fingerprint sensors going into photocopiers, and Sony's cut down on their eReader prices.
Options never hurt. That's why we're happy to hear that the Sony NEX line of mirrorless cameras is going to get a few options for themselves here shortly. Thanks to Rayqual, a manufacturer out of Japan, the pair of cameras is primed and ready to get Leica, Nikon, and Canon lenses attached to their faces. Something as simple as a lens adapter is the catalyst, making it possible for us to take even better shots than we could before.
Canon has been working for years to bring SED or surface-conduction electron-emitter displays to the consumer market. These displays were once thought by Canon to be the future of TVs in homes because they offer high resolution and low power consumption.
If we're blunt, Canon's new IXUS 300 HS point-and-shoot doesn't quite have the appeal of Sony's new NEX pair, but it promises to be a whole lot more affordable (and approachable for mainstream users) than the interchangeable lens models. The IXUS 300 HS packs a 10-megapixel CMOS sensor and a 3.8x optical zoom, and can capture 720p HD footage or 240fps super-slow-motion video.
