Meet The Canon Powershot G1 X Iii

Meet the Canon PowerShot G1 X III

The Canon G1 X Mark III is what would happen if someone crammed a Canon 80D or M5 into a Powershot G5 X body, which is pretty cool. The body is impressively small and light weight, given its large sensor and useful 24-70mm equiv. zoom range, even if the F2.8-5.6 aperture is a tad slow. We're excited to get it in and get shooting, but for now, here's a look into some of its main features and specs.

Canon Could Have More Than One Full-Frame Camera In The Works

Given how Sony is more or less having free reign with its full-frame mirrorless cameras with no one to challenge them, it doesn't come as a surprise to learn that companies such as Canon and Nikon might have something in the works. In fact it seems that according to recent rumors, Canon might have more than one such camera in development.

In a report from Canon Rumors, they have heard that Canon apparently has three full-frame mirrorless cameras that they are development, although it seems that they are in different stages of development and that they might not all be released at once, but at least one model should be revealed by the end of 2018.

Canon Developing A Compact Multipurpose Module Camera - Mm100-ws

Canon developing a compact multipurpose module camera - MM100-WS - FareastgizmosCanon announced today that the Company has committed to a proposed new imaging solutions business that will leverage the optical and sensor technologies the Company has cultivated over many years. As the first step in establishing this business, Canon is developing a compact multipurpose module camera that the business will employ: the MM100-WS. The MM100-WS achieves a compact body size of approximately 40 mm (w) x 40 mm (h) x 21.6 mm (d). The camera also realizes a highly customizable body designed to accommodate upcoming modules that enhance dust and moisture resistance and durability needed for a wide range of applications. The camera is capable of image capture in low-light environments with as little as 1 lux of illumination. Canon will also make available upon request the Application Programming Interface (API) for the MM100-WS, enabling users to utilize the camera for a wide range of solutions.

Thanks to its compact body and high scalability, the MM100-WS is ideal for such professional and industrial applications as monitoring narrow spaces, piping inspections, automotive-use cameras, video content creation and as a support tool for a wide variety of occupations. Going forward, as part of the proposed creation of this new imaging solutions business that utilizes the MM100-WS, Canon will develop and make available various modules, accessories and software for the camera to facilitate the customization demanded by users for a wide range of applications and scenarios. Canon plans to display the camera as a reference exhibit at the Canon booth at various future events.

Canon To Launch New, Partially-automated Camera Plant In Japan In 2019

Canon to launch new, partially-automated camera plant in Japan in 2019

Canon has revealed that it is building a new semi-automated camera plant in Japan, and that it expects to open the plant in 2019. The factory will be located in the Miyazaki Prefecture on a 300,000 square meter land parcel, marking this the first time Canon has built a new camera production facility in Japan since 2010. The plant will focus on producing single-lens reflex cameras, according to Nikkei.

This business move is part of a growing effort on Canon's part to bring more of its production business back to its home nation, a move spurred in part by increased wages abroad. Though Canon had originally moved much of its production outside of Japan, the cost of domestic manufacturing has lowered thanks to factory automation technologies.

Canon Unveils Stabilized Ef 85mm F1.4l Lens

Canon unveils stabilized EF 85mm F1.4L lens

Canon has announced the EF 85mm F1.4L IS USM stabilized portrait prime. It's the company's first F1.4 offering at that focal length, joining its current EF 85mm F1.8 USM and EF 85mm F1.2L II USM lenses. The EF 85mm F1.4L provides up to four stops of stabilization, uses a nine-blade aperture and offers a dust and weather-resistant build.

In terms of the competition, the new EF 85mm F1.4L doesn't aim to beat the $1200 Sigma 85mm F1.4 Art on price: it will debut at $1600. At 950g / 33.5oz it does weigh significantly less than the Sigma, even with stabilization, but that may say more about the quite heavy 1130g / 39.9oz Art lens than it does about the Canon.

A DIGIC 7 processor brings other improvements like a boost from 1080/30p to 1080/60p video capture and 4 fps burst shooting with continuous AF (6 fps with single AF) compared to the M10's 2.2 fps with C-AF.

The Canon EOS M100 maintains its predecessor's built-in Wi-Fi with NFC, tilting 3" 1.03M-dot touchscreen, and pop-up flash. Bluetooth connectivity is also available, allowing for a constant connection between camera and mobile device. Canon says it's the slimmest and lightest of its M-series offerings yet, and touts a newly designed touch interface for its beginner-friendly Creative Assist mode.

Canon Launches A Trio Of Tilt-shift Lenses: 50mm, 90mm And 135mm

Canon launches a trio of tilt-shift lenses: 50mm, 90mm and 135mm

In addition to a new portrait prime, Canon has introduced three new tilt-shift lenses: the TS-E 50mm F2.8L Macro, TS-E 90mm F2.8L Macro and 135mm F4L Macro. Each lens is capable of 1:2 magnification so may not be considered 'true macro,' though the 50mm can go to 1:1 via an optional close-up ring.

Canon says that all three offer improved image quality compared to previous TS-E lenses, with enhancements such as molded aspherical glass and UD lenses. SubWaveLength Structure Coating (SWC) is used in the TS-E 50mm F2.8L and 135mm F4L to reduce ghosting and flare, and a new anti-reflective Air-Sphere Coating (ASC) is used in the TS-E 50mm F2.8L and TS-E 90mm F2.8L. Each lens comes with usability improvements including a larger tilt range, shift-and-lock knobs and a mechanism to lock the lens at its zero-tilt position.

Canon Powershot G1 X Mark Iii Could Be Announced Soon

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III Could Be Announced Soon

If you're looking for a camera that's relatively compact but can take some pretty good photos, but also don't want to have to deal with the hassle of lugging around and juggling multiple lenses like with mirrorless cameras, then Canon's PowerShot G series of cameras have proven to be pretty good at getting the job done.

Now the last time we saw a PowerShot G camera was back in 2014 with the PowerShot G1 X Mark II which means that the camera is 3 years old now, and in the tech world 3 years is considered to be an eternity, especially with so many advancements being made in imaging technology. However the good news is that Canon could have a successor in the works in the form of the PowerShot G1 X Mark III.
