Canon USA has issued an EOS 7D Service Notice:
 
Service Notice: EOS 7D: Residual Image in Picture
 
Thank you for using Canon products.
 
We have confirmed that in certain camera settings and shooting conditions, the phenomenon described below may occur in images captured by the EOS 7D Digital SLR camera.
 
Canon is currently investigating and analyzing the cause of this phenomenon, and we are planning to release a firmware update to address this issue.
 
Once the support measures have been established, we will post the relevant information on our Web site.
 
We offer our most sincere apologies to customers using this product who have been inconvenienced by this issue. Going forward, we will spare no effort in our quality management to make sure our customers can use our products with confidence. We hope our efforts will earn your understanding.
 
Phenomenon
In images captured by continuous shooting, and under certain conditions, barely noticeable traces of the immediately preceding frame may be visible. This phenomenon is not noticeable in an image with optimal exposure. The phenomenon may become more noticeable if a retouching process such as level compensation is applied to emphasize the image.
 
Affected Product
EOS 7D Digital SLR

Walkstool Comfort Folding Stool Review
 
I have not been writing many accessory reviews recently, but a friend came up to me at a recent soccer match. He was excited about what I was sitting on - not the Canon EOS 7D and Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens I was using at the time. So, based on his excitement matching my love for the Walkstool Comfort Folding Stool, I felt I needed to share this piece of gear with you. My guess is that you also have a use for one or two of these.
 
 
J&R started taking preorders for the Canon EOS 1D Mark IV only minutes ago. This is another good list to be on the top of.
 
 
John Harrington has released Best Business Practices for Photographers, Second Edition. This is a must-read book if you are selling or are planning to sell your images and/or services.

Introducing: The Canon EOS 1D Mark IV (press release)
 
Amazon.com has the Canon EOS 1D Mark IV available for preorder. I expect this camera to be hard to get for a rather long period of time - just like the previous 1-Series bodies. Preorder immediately if you plan to get this DSLR.

From Canon Europe:
 
Canon EOS 5D Mark II: Statement on Firmware Development
 
Canon today announces that it is currently developing a firmware update to the EOS 5D Mark II to enable the recording of high definition 1080p video at 24 and 25fps. The decision to develop new firmware to support these features has been taken following feedback received from cinematographers and photographers.
 
Introduced in September 2008, the multi award-winning EOS 5D Mark II was the first DSLR product to offer full frame 1080p HD video recording, opening up a multitude of new creative possibilities for photo journalists, news photographers and amateur filmmakers. Since then, Canon has continued to develop its groundbreaking EOS Movie functionality, firstly with the firmware update to the EOS 5D Mark II that enabled manual exposure control, and more recently by introducing a choice of video recording frame rates with the EOS 7D and EOS-1D Mark IV.
 
Canon currently expects the firmware update to be made available during the first half of 2010. An announcement regarding details of the update and its availability will be made closer to the release date.
 
 
Announced today were the Canon WFT-E2 II and WFT-E4 II Wireless File Transmitters (press release)
 
 
Canon has also announced the Fall 2009 EOS & PowerShot Loyalty Rebate Program.
 
"As an exclusive offer to our registered EOS and PowerShot customers (who have registered before October 12th), a $50 mail-in rebate is available if you purchase and register a Rebel XS, XSi, T1i, 50D, 7D or 5D Mark II; or a $20 mail-in rebate is available if you purchase and register a PowerShot camera* between October 12, 2009 and December 31, 2009.

No Canon USA at PMA.
 
Canon USA has informed me that they will not be participating in the PMA 2010 Trade Show. Canon USA historically has a large display at this annual show and typically makes DSLR-related announcements just prior to the event opening. Canon USA did not provide me any reasons for this change but emphasized that the imaging industry remains the core of their business.
 
As usual, no information was provided about the timing of new camera, lens and accessory announcements. Canon USA will be at PhotoPlus Expo and at CES.
 
 
Sold out: B&H has the new Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens in stock.
 

 
Tuesday, September 29, 2009
 
B&H has the new Canon EF-S 18-135mm Lens in stock.
 

 
Monday, September 28, 2009
 
Calumet has the new Canon EF-S 18-135mm Lens in stock (search for "CA40619").
 
 
Notice: Canon lens, flash and accessories price increase coming.
 
Among other sources of this rumor, Berger Bros (reputable camera retailer) reportedly sent the following email to their customers:
 
"Effective October 1st, Canon will be implementing a price increase of approximately 10% on many products, including lenses, flashes, and accessories."
 
If this rumor is true (and it sounds like it is), the time to buy Canon gear is right now. We have come to expect Canon Rebates to become available in October, but what is harder to predict is which lenses and flashes will be included - and how much the rebate will be on them. My guess is that buying now insures you a good deal. Now might be a good time to start your Christmas shopping.

New site feature: Lens Specifications and Measurements
 
This new comparison tool is not completely finished (I'll call it a "Beta" version) and there is some data missing in the database that drives it, but I think you will find it useful now. One of the planned additions is a "Help" page to better explain the specifications.
 
The way this tool is coded facilitates additional specs and measurements being easily included. Let me know if you have an additional specification(s) or measurement(s) to add (especially if you can enter the values in a spreadsheet I provide). Also, I welcome suggestions, corrections and missing information (I plan to get to some of it) being emailed as well.
 
Don't miss the Metric/Imperial conversion link. The page should remember your preference on future visits. Measurements and weights are stored in Metric format in the database and converted for Imperial display (just FYI).
 
So, check it out: Lens Specifications and Measurements

A couple of new accessories are coming for the new Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM Macro Lens. Adorama has both available for preorder:
 
Canon Tripod Mount Ring D
Canon Macrolite Adapter 67
 
I'm not sure why the Tripod Ring the description says "white". That does not make sense to me - this is a dedicated ring and the lens is black. Hopefully that is just a typo.
 

 
Thursday, September 10, 2009
 
Sold out fast: B&H has the Canon TS-E 17mm f/4 L Lens in stock. Act immediately if you want one - they have been lasting about 5 minutes.
 
 
The Canon Refurbished inventory at Adorama has been once again refreshed. About 40 now 60 items have been added this time. Expect like-new gear at nicely reduced prices. Act fast - the good stuff doesn't last long.

Adorama just started taking preorders for the new Canon BG-E7 Battery Grip (for the EOS 7D).

Just announced: Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 DG OS Lens (press release)
 
Also announced: Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II VC Lens (press release).
 
The announced Tamron lens is in a Nikon mount, but "Tamron plans to introduce the lens in a Canon mount version shortly after the new Nikon mount version with built-in motor hits the market." Based on the quality-for-the-price ratio of the non-VC Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II Lens, this news lens stands to be a winner - and should close the feature/benefits gap between it and the excellent Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens.

Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens
Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens
 
Again: I highly expect the 7D to be very hard to get for a long time - preorder immediately to get in the front of this line.
