Canon has 70 new products on Feb 21st?
 
That's the rumour, supposedly from Canon Spain.

Noah Hayes February 15th, 2006 09:20 PM

Don't know what the other 67 are but the release of the SD600, A530 and A540 are on the 12th of March...I assume these will be announced on the 27th. I guess tey'll finally release they HD replacement for that dinosaur the GL2...30D would be nice...

Andrew Khalil February 16th, 2006 01:12 AM

that 3D rumor looks beautiful - I really needed a smaller version of the 1 series and it looks like that's it. I hope it's real.

Michael Wisniewski February 16th, 2006 09:40 AM

Aaaargh, I can't substantiate this rumour :-p, but I read somewhere on another site ... or was it my cousin's friend ...

Well anyway, Canon's going to announce 11 new camcorders.

Michael Wisniewski February 16th, 2006 09:41 AM

Don't get your hopes up though, they're all in the ZR line.

Michael Wisniewski February 16th, 2006 09:42 AM

But they will all be HDV.

Bob Zimmerman February 16th, 2006 10:47 AM

why feb 21st?

You would think its about time for a GL3!

Michael Wisniewski February 16th, 2006 11:37 AM

PMA starts around February 24, followed by NAB at the end of March.

Michael Wisniewski February 16th, 2006 11:44 AM

Looks like there's going to be a replacement for the Canon Powershot G6. It's down to 4 sellers on pricegrabber.com, that's down from 20 sellers about 2 months ago. Perhaps a full frame fixed lens range finder/SRL body people have been speculating about.

Interestingly, the GL2 went up to 44 sellers from 34 sellers about 2 weeks ago, don't know what that means though.

Bob Zimmerman February 16th, 2006 12:00 PM

How long as the GL2 been out?

From this press release, it appears to be around 4 years. I was talking to another shooter today about how Canon has seemingly abandoned the prosumer camcorder space. I was at the XL-H1 launch event and the Canon people kept saying that the H1 was meant to be a broadcast studio camera.

That said, I am very much a Canon guy ever since I got my EOS650 years ago. I wish they had a full robust line of video cameras like Panasonic does.
