Feeling the need for some fresh new Canon MILC rumors? We don’t blame you, as the usually constant stream of mirrorless talk from the Canon front has run a tad dry as of late. But, nevertheless, our friend Mr. Cooper from Northlight-Images (thanks Mike!), on his never-ending search for the latest credible information, has just released a few rather intriguing tid-bits, sure to satiate the appetite of inquiring minds.
Quick News – Canon Rumors is reporting word from a known source, stating that the camera maker’s long-awaited jump into the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera market will come in about one months time henceforth, revealing a highly anticipated new model on July 24th, 2012.
Month after month, the seemingly ever-present hints of a T4i and Mirrorless ILC announcement from Canon never seem to simmer, as the roller-coaster ride of between what “might be,” “could be,” or “may presumably be” unveiled shows no signs of slowing down. Whatever the case may be, the loose word from the rumors-mill has yet to materialize into anything as of yet, begging the question as to when Canon will indeed unveil the two aforementioned offerings.
Just like many of us, David Riesenberg, the inventive mind behind the conceptual Canon mirrorless camera shown above and below, has been eagerly anticipating Canon’s “true” leap into the mirrorless camera market and the unveiling of a modern mirrorless ode to the camera maker’s 35mm SLRs of decades past.
Egami, the Japanese blog that is always dishing out the latest revelations in camera technology and lens patents, might have just spoiled Canon’s plans of secrecy regarding their illusive mirrorless interchangeable lens camera – a model that everyone has been eagerly anticipating, being that Canon has yet to join the competition and release one of their own.
Valentin Sama, founder of DSLR Magazine, has just revealed some interesting information on his personal blog, stating a Canon “Super-G” is being prepped to compete with the mirrorless camera market. It wasn’t mentioned whether this G-branded camera would in fact be Canon’s first leap into the mirrorless game, however, Sama’s report does correlate with a recent CanonRumors post, claiming the next Canon G would be a departure from prior models. No further details were given other than our first glimpse of such a camera could come as early as CES 2012 held in just a few week’s.
With Sony, Nikon, Olympus, and Panasonic, currently enjoying their strangle-hold on the mirrorless camera market, Canon, the company many thought would spear-head the movement, has yet to take part in the MILC festivities. However, it’s looking like 2012 might just be the year Canon decides to encroach on the successes the market has seen.
