I have received a lot of emails, tweets, and Facebook messages about the lacklustre announcements from Canon today. Canon generally doesn’t make a big splash at CES, which is a very broad consumer electronics show. You get lost in TV’s, software, phones and every other gadget one can think of.
I’d expect we’re going to see higher end products announced for CP+ in Japan, which runs from February 12, 2015 until February 15, 2015. Announcements for different types of products may trickle out in the weeks prior to the show.
What could we expect for CP+?
I expect we’re going to see the rumoured/confirmed large zoom, large sensor PowerShot. The specs from the other day could be this camera.
The EF 11-24 f/4L could also make an appearance, this lens has been all but confirmed. We will probably see a new Rebel in the next month or two, so that could appear for CP+.
As for the high megapixel camera? This could be a show we get at least a development announcement as I do expect an announcement for this camera to come before NAB in April.
More to come….
