Canon releases two new SLR cameras

Canon has announced the release of two new SLR cameras. The EOS 700D or Rebel T5i has an 18 megapixel APS-C sensor with a native ISO range of 100-12800. It also features Canon’s Hybrid AF system and DIGIC 5 image processor. It will be available from April at a US retail price of $749.00.

The EOS 100D or Rebel SL1 is designed to have a very small form factor, comparable to that of mirrorless cameras. It would seem to have the same sensor, processor and AF performance as that of the EOS 700D and will also be available in April, priced at $649.00 in the USA.

Canon petitioned to investigate issues with 5D Mk III Photo

Canon petitioned to investigate issues with 5D Mk III

A petition has been created to attempt to force Canon to address issues with its 5D Mark III SLR. The fault is that it freezes after capturing a video up to the time limit. This issue seems to occur with certain Compact Flash (CF) cards once the camera reaches the 30 minute mark. As the 5D Mark III records to a FAT32 file system on CF cards, the maximum file size for each clip can only be 4GB, which corresponds to about 12 minutes of footage. The bug seems to make the camera lock-up and lose the previous 12 minute clip in the process.

Canon’s current position is that it is a card issue, particularly with SanDisk cards. The petition has been created to ask or force the company to look at the problem more comprehensively.
