Canon Japan Releases the Rumored ‘White Kiss,’ a White Version of the Rebel SL1

canonwhite1

After a couple of teasers from Canon Korea and Canon Japan, the promised ‘white kiss’ camera officially arrived last night. Unfortunately, it seems the camera turned out to be the least exciting of the options rumor sites were bandying about: a white version of the Rebel SL1 that is otherwise unchanged.

The camera claims the title of first ever white Canon SLR, and for now is only set to release in Japan. Interested buyers in the region will be able to pick one up starting the 28th of November in a kit with either the standard 18-55mm lens, or a matching white version of the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens.

Return of the Teasers: Canon Korea Teases ‘White World’ Camera in New Ad

Just when we thought we were done with all the teasers, it looks like Canon is picking up where Nikon left off. To be fair, the teaser released by Canon Korea today is an ad, not a video. And chances are there won’t be another ad every other day until the camera comes out… but who knows.

Either way, we have another camera to anticipate, and Canon is teasing this one with the words, “Canon will start from the white world.” Read more…

Another leak sprung over the weekend — if, that is, you believe it’s a leak and not a strategic move by the company. This one, however, doesn’t have to do with an upcoming camera, but rather some new glass. It’s the first official-looking photo of the rumored Sigma 24-105mm f/4 lens. Read more…

Rumor: Canon May Replace the 50mm f/1.4 with a High-End 50mm f/1.8

50mmf14

Canon’s 50mm lens lineup is getting crowded… at least that’s what Canon seems to think. According to a fresh rumor, the company has plans to replace the current 50mm f/1.4 USM. But it won’t be replaced by another f/1.4. Instead, Canon might do away with the lens altogether and release a high-end 50mm f/1.8 IS USM instead. Read more…
