Canon has launched another DSLR in its Rebel range of cameras, aimed at the entry-level market. An upgrade from the EOS Rebel T3 launched in 2011, the Canon EOS Rebel T5 uses an 18-megapixel CMOS APS-C sensor with a DIGIC 4 image processor, giving it a sensitivity range of ISO 100 to ISO 12,800, the ability to capture 1080p video at 30fps, and a continuous shooting mode of 3fps.
Naturalist Markus Thompson orchestrated one of the more unusual camera recoveries yet after he posted about a Canon Rebel XS (1000D) on Google+ between Friday and Saturday. He found the DSLR at the end of a wharf in Deep Bay, near Vancouver, British Columbia after after it had been underwater for what turned out to be since August 2010, or 15 months ago. Although the camera itself was ruined from exposure to saltwater, the SD card inside was still working, giving a clue as to the owner through self-portraits and shots of his family.
Canon's camera group lead Masaya Maeda hinted in an interview Tuesday that his company was at least investigating, if not making, a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. The Japanese firm was "considering the technical aspects" of such a jump. There would be an "interesting product" with small dimensions next year, Maeda told Reuters, although he didn't say if that would be an interchangeable model.
After previously limiting the production runs to a handful of countries like Australia and Canada, Canon on Monday brought new colors of the Rebel T3 to the US. The DSLR now comes not just in conservative black but but also the previously seen red hue as well as brown and metallic gray. The palette swap is the first in years for the Rebel after the company stopped shipping the camera in silver.
The iPhone 4 should soon carry the distinction of being the most popular camera on Flickr. The Yahoo-owned site's Camera Finder shows Apple's phone on the verge of overtaking the Nikon D90 and having already passed Canon's EOS 5D Mark II, Rebel T1i, and Rebel XSi. Without timestamps, it's unclear exactly when the shift began, but it followed after a surge a significant amount of time after the iPhone 4 was on sale.
Canon has unveiled a pair of upgraded Rebel DSLR cameras aimed at first-time DSLR owners. The EOS Rebel T3i and EOS Rebel T3 are focusing more on newcomers to DSLRs. The T3i stands out as one of the few in its class with a swiveling LCD and gets its three-inch display from the EOS 60D.
Canon's annual upgrade to its Rebel DSLRs may be getting close as Korea's Radio Research Agency has a listing for a new model. The EOS 600D, more likely to be called the Rebel T3i in North America, was quietly passed through testing last week. It didn't provide details of what features the camera would bring.
The Rebel is a watch and phone in one from UK outfit sWaP, which stands for Smart Watch and Phone. At the same time, the device combines a camera, music and video player, an FM radio, calendar and e-book reader. The phone has quad-band GSM support for calls, and users control the entire interface through a 1.46-inch, 176x132 touchscreen.
Canon's by now long rumored EOS 60D may have been spotted through a pair of anonymous spy shots posted today. The images appear to confirm the presence of a swiveling screen and clearly show a mode dial from Canon's modern era, with Creative Auto and movie settings. Its body is too large to be a Rebel model and has one of Canon's distinctive white telephoto lenses attached.
Canon's image group leader Masaya Maeda today confirmed that his company is developing a smaller pro camera to compete against mirrorless, interchangeable lens rivals. It was implied the camera would still use a DSLR approach rather than go mirrorless and would be smaller than cameras like the Rebel series to compete with the size of cameras like Olympus' PEN series or the Sony NEX line. Maeda saw the issue of size simply as a matter of design.
