Successor to EOS 7D is coming soon?

Here are major points of an interview with Canon's managing director held on Jan.24 at CES, Las Vegas: (interviewer Honda)

1. mirrorless models: more variations (models) will be introduced in due course. Less battery consumption makes it possible to downsize bodies.

2. CMOS sensor: R&D is made for adding special devices to the sensor so that images can be processed in the sensor. By doing this, both ultra-tele & ultra-wide lenses do not have to be that big. This in turn makes those lenses smaller, lighter in weight and less expensive.

3. The successor to EOS7D will be announced not that far away. Smaller body is a keyword here too.


I added many words while recapitulating the interview, so that could result in some differences from what he implied. I made them clearer by adding words.

Hi Yoshi,
It is interesting to see that Canon decided to join the crowd. I have often thought that it is a matter of "component maturation", where the AF issues are solved and the EVF-viewfinders start to resemble reality. The phase detect in sensor seems to be fixing the AF issue and Epson's Ultimicron XGA TFT/EVF may fix the viewfinders.
Modern Evolution: Solve the problems and then make it smaller.

Hi Bob,

"component maturation" and "Modern Evolution: Solve the problems and then make it smaller."

Nice words that express precisely the characteristics of the recent trend of camera technologies.

I read a few days ago that Epson started the mass-production of the Ultimicron XGA TFT/EVF.

Hi Yoshi,
Epson's Press Release was dated 22 Jan and it made me wonder who would get the first shipment
From the specs the L3F04X-8x module will make most of the present EVFs second rate, if not obsolete. First shipments may go the users of the previous model, Olympus and Leica, but if Canon is involved, production may get spread thin
