Canon Releases A String Of New Products

In true Canon fashion, they’ve released several new products, including a compact camera, a DSLR camera, and a camera light advance of this year’s CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show.

G1 X Mark II Advanced Compact Camera – $799, April 2014


As Photo District News mentions, the Mark II is an upgrade to Canon’s previous G1 X and posesses much of the same qualities. It does have a “12.8-megapixel sensor in the G1 X Mark II is an entirely new chip, that actually has slightly less resolution than the previous camera, which used a 14.3MP CMOS imager”, to accomodate the camera’s new 3:2 aspect ratio. A switch to a 4:3 ratio is also possible. There are a great number of other new improvements, which Photo District News details in their story.

Rebel T5 Consumer DSLR – $549, March 2014


Targeted toward the consumer photographer, the Rebel T5 DSLR “…uses an 18MP CMOS, APS-C sensor, and has an ISO range of 100-6400, which is expandable to 12800. The T5 features a nine-point AF system (including one center cross-type AF point) and can shoot at up to three frames per second”.

Macro Ring Light MR-14EX II – $549, May 2014


A hotshoe mounted light, the Macro Ring is an upgraded version of Canon’s previous light, the MR-14 X. With updated controls and wireless connectivity to Canon’s Speedlite 600EX-RT, the MR-14EX II is “…a more modern version of what we had” according to Chuck Westfall.
