We have the latest rumored information via NL that there is expectation that Canon will announce a new camera and two lenses on 14th August, 2015.
However no confirmed information available about the upcoming product yet .We have seen a series of rumors related to lenses & cameras by Canon for few past months which is sufficient to make us think that there is more chance that Canon will offer its latest camera and two lenses for its users who are waiting for long time.
Canon 1DX Mark II, Canon 6D Mark II and Canon 5D Mark IV, these prime machines are waiting for the upgrade, we don’t have any confirmed info at the moment but Canon 1DX Mark II is floating top on the list.
Canon 150D Update is also Overdue
We strongly believe that Canon will bring the new Canon 150D DSLR on Aug 14th, the news we got earlier via a tipster that Canon is ready to announce the Canon 150D camera in September 2015 [see here], now [again] according to Northlight website Canon may announce the 150D on August 2015… So we both websites are getting almost same time-frame for the announcement of world smallest DSLR…
Since all are based on rumor so don’t take it as confirmation. We have to wait and watch for more information related to it.

Canon was working on 5DS / 5DSR and Fullframe Mirrorless camera before the interview was published
Take a look at the interview (published on September 25th, 2014)
Masaya Maeda, the Managing Director and Chief Executive, Image Communication Products Operations confirmed that Canon is working on serious mirrorless camera system other than EOS-M
Currently no Canon camera offers more than 22MP. Do your DSLR customers ask for higher resolution?
Maeda: Yes. We know that many of our customers need more resolution and this is under consideration. In the very near future you can expect us to show something in terms of mirrorless and also a higher resolution sensor.
We have already seen the Canon 5DS and 5DS R DSLR with super resolution 50MP fullframe sensor..what left is Canon Fullframe Mirrorless Camera.
What I have said on December 22nd, 2014 [link here]
No Need for Mirrorless Camera if it doesn’t directly support EF and EF-S lenses, Canon users those who have already invested a large amount of on high quality lenses will not going to invest more money in new lenses ….and the mirrorless cam is useless if the camera body arrived by having similar sensor as of Canon DSLRs , it’s a flop show… and no one’s want to see that..
