Canon Plans to Announce Something “Historic” on November 3rd

Canon sent out this teaser yesterday stating that it’s going to be making some kind of game-changing announcement on November 3rd. Since the location is Hollywood, it seems more likely that it’ll be some kind of camera for filmmaking rather than a mirrorless camera. Filmmaker Philip Bloom thinks it’ll be an EF and PL mount camcorder with a Super 35mm sensor (possibly offering 4K resolution).

While we’re on the topic of Canon announcements, TechRadar wonders whether Canon is planning to discontinue the Canon G series after the company unveiled the powerful PowerShot S100 yesterday. Perhaps the line will be replaced with a mirrorless camera series?

    “An historic” would sound more appropriate to the British, some Canadians, New Zealanders and a US Americans over the age of 40. It’s an horrific minefield out there.

    I don’t remember what was announced with the last “historic” camera announcement event, so I’ll just plan on forgetting and be pleasantly surprised if anything interesting is introduced Nov. 3.

    I remember when Apple sent out a teaser saying “Apple Is going to change everything…. Again”.

    We all expected iTunes in the cloud, a new iPhone…. what did we get? The Beatles launched on iTunes.

    Uh, no. The only reason it might sound better is if you’re one of those oddballs who doesn’t pronounce the ‘h’, which is a butchering of the language that encourages you to use ‘an’ because history then sounds like it starts with a vowel. Which it does not. Canadians, Brits, NZ’ers… All say the word how it’s supposed to be said.

    Another one that bugs me is ‘human’. It isn’t ‘you-man’ or ‘ooman’. There’s an ‘h’ at the beginning! Stop being so lazy that you don’t even say the whole word!
