Rumored Canon pro-digital camera in the works

Rumored Canon pro-digital camera in the works

Could Canon be working on a professional digital camera? That's the buzz going around the rumor mill today and if true, the specs are expected to be pretty impressive. This could be completely false, but it's worth keeping your eye on, anyway.

If true, Canon is creating a video camera for the pro market that uses their 1x APS-C CMOS sensor. This would allow for video capture of up to 120 frames per second and 12.1 megapixels. Now that would certainly be impressive!

A few new lenses are supposedly in the works as well that would go along nicely with the camera. Specifically, a 16mm and a telezoom lens. Again, this is just a rumor at this time, but I think it would be a great addition to the Canon family. And I'm sure several pro videographers out there would like to see it come to fruition as well.

Digital TV switchover delayed until June 12th

Digital TV switchover delayed until June 12th

Lovers of analog TV rest easy: the US senate has approved a bill that will delay the DTV switchover to June 12th, four months after its original February 17th deadline.  Citing concerns that viewers are not "technically reader" for the change from analog to digital broadcasts, the delay will also give the government time to reissue DTV coupons which subsidize the converter boxes by $40.  Apparently 2.5m people are on the waiting list for coupons, which ran out earlier this month.

If you currently have cable, you don't have to do anything, but if not, you'll need a DTV box. Most people know this by now. However, an FCC official is now saying the transition will not go as smoothly as everyone had previously hoped.
