“Not even a whisper” from Canon, writes Canon Rumors. No news from the world’s leading camera producer. Other camera makers are churning out progressive gear. “For the moment, there doesn’t seem to be much chatter coming from the Canon camp,” concedes Canon Rumors. Well folks, we’re talking about the world’s biggest camera maker. No news, no surprises, nothing to excite us.
Canon Rumors goes on with, “There still seems to be a lot of EOS M stock out there, as we keep seeing deals for the camera come about.” True.
“As far as the big EOS stuff,” Canon Rumors continues, “we’re still holding with no DSLR or lenses in 2013, although a development announcement is always possible.” But unlikely?
Canon Rumors doesn’t “think Canon has ever done a development announcement without announcing an official new product alongside it.”
But where is it? What is it? Where is what?
No serious EVF camera yet.
No convincing DSLR alternatives yet.
What we see is “same same, not different.”
Just silence in these times of exciting new camera announcements.
Complete silence from the Canon camp while Sony, Olympus, Fujifilm, Panasonic, etc. keep on boldly innovating and rumor sites are busy putting out new stuff.
And did I mention Nikon?!
Concluding sobering statement by Canon Rumors:
“I expect two camera bodies at the most in Q1 of 2014, one being a new EOS M camera. The other being an entry level type DSLR.”
World’s camera leader?
Right, they keep on announcing new cameras — just not the ones I want to see — and they’re selling those well.
While these days have seen a flush of new exciting announcements, Canon’s last step forward was the EOS 70D. To stay competitive they might want to thingk about upping their game?
We are in the midst of a new world order in the camera industry and the former key players have stopped innovating cameras.
Complacency has made other big names suffer, just to mention Microsoft, Nokia, BlackBerry.
Or let’s see the bright side of it: CaNikons may not be the most exciting cameras. But they work.
