Some curious certification submissions

Last week there was a report from that reported on the following Canon Camera models being submitted for certification.

DS 126701

  • Single-lens reflex camera
  • Made in Taiwan
  • Wi-Fi installed (Bluetooth not installed)
  • Size: W129.0 mm × H 101.6 mm × D 77.1 mm

DS 126741


  • Single-lens reflex camera
  • Wi-Fi installed (Bluetooth not installed)



What I found curious was the lack of bluetooth on both cameras.


With mention of the size (curious as well on certification), it's certainly a smaller Rebel series camera, however, it's missing BLE.  BLE has made it into every camera lately that is consumer driven, including even the diminutive SL2.

The size listed if accurate, would suggest a 1200D replacement camera, the lack of bluetooth would suggest a higher end camera, or Canon decided to leave off BLE from it's lowest cost camera.

The other camera, with no size, tends to fit in with either a 7D Mark III or a 5Ds release.

It makes sense for Canon to be close to launching the 7D before the Winter Olympic games in PyeongChang in 2018, as it being the perfect launch for a sports driven APS-C camera.

What remains to be seen is how this camera is received with the D500 and the D850 covering sports photography excellently and in the case of the D850 + grip - almost as good as any other APS-C sports camera out there.

That being said, if the current rumors of 30MP APS-C are true that will place the 7D Mark III at a competitive advantage over any full frame camera for being able to place pixels on a target using telephoto lenses. 
It's hard not to think this camera will be readied for the spring in time for the Olympics.
