More Leaked Photos of the Canon EOS M Mirrorless Camera

Here are some more leaked photos of Canon's upcoming mirrorless camera (here's our post from earlier today). Canon Rumors published a couple covertly taken photos of the camera, while Canon Price Watch released a bunch of new product shots. These images confirm that the first leaked photo wasn't some Photoshop job that had us all fooled.

Canon’s Mirrorless May Sport an APS-C Sensor and Articulating Touchscreen

Up until now, all rumors regarding Canon's upcoming mirrorless offering (which is expected to be announced officially at a special July 23rd event) have pointed towards it housing the same sensor found in the company's capable G1 X compact. This was said to be the case because another, more capable mirrorless offering has been in the works for Photokina. New rumors, however, seem to indicate that, while there is a prototype out there of a Canon mirrorless with a G1 X sensor, the official product might actually be sporting an 18MP APS-C sensor ala Canon's recent Rebel T4i.

Canon Mirrorless Announcement Date Possibly Set for July 24th

Late last month several rumors pointed to the fact that Canon would be announcing two new cameras in June. The first, Canon's new EOS T4i, was already announced, but as June approaches its final days many were wondering if Canon had pushed back the announcement date for their much anticipated first mirrorless camera. Unfortunately, according to Canon Rumors, that does seem to be the case.

Canon AE-D Mirrorless Camera Concept

Olympus recently rebooted its OM line of film SLRs with the OM-D mirrorless camera, and many photographers are hoping that Canon will follow suit with one of its film bodies. Industrial designer and photographer David Riesenberg is among them, and recently decided turn what he wants to see into a concept drawing. After spending months "learning, debating, modeling, and rendering," the Canon AE-D was born. Inspired by the AE and AE-P cameras, Riesenberg's camera features the same 18.1MP full frame sensor found in the 1D X, a new CM-D lens mount that supports EF lenses with an adapter, a 50mm f/1.0L kit lens, and a pentaprism electronic viewfinder that attaches via the hot shoe.
