Canon EOS M2 with 18-55mm with EF-S IS STM Lens
Imaging-Resource recently interviewed Go Tokura, Canon's Group Executive for Image Communications / Products Operations. Mr. Tokura was asked directly, "Will we eventually see the M2 in the U.S., or will you wait until the next generation?"
 
Mr. Tokura replied (via translator), "There are plans for the M2 to arrive in the U.S. However, having said that, I should make clear that that's the decision that is led by the sales groups in each division, so they are the ones who are holding the decision-making responsibility on that."
 
This news would contradict initial reports that the EOS M2 would only be released in Asian markets.

COMODO Orbit Handheld Stabilization Rig
Clacton on Sea, United Kingdom – February 27, 2014 – Comodo, a manufacturer of advanced camera stabilization systems, is announcing the release of their newest camera stabilization device, Orbit. Utilizing advanced engineering in mechanical gimbal technology, combined with application of basic physics, Orbit is the first mechanically driven, twin grip gimbal stabilization device of its kind to be introduced to the HDSLR and small camcorder segment of the filmmaking community.
 
Inspired and designed by award-winning filmmaker, and pioneer of the Single Shot Cinema Shooting Method, Leonard Retel Helmrich, Orbit is the perfect tool for photographers and filmmakers of all levels who want steady and fluid hand-held footage that is easy to capture. Unlike any other stabilization device currently available, Orbit requires no weights, motors, or batteries in its balancing and operation. This results in a simplified, streamlined, and straightforward way for filmmakers and photographers to utilize the tool within production environments without dedicating large amounts of set-up time to its usage.
 

 
Commenting on the announcement, Jan Lederman, President of MAC Group noted:
 
“Providing photographers and filmmakers with the world’s finest image making tools has always been the driving focus of MAC Group. I feel that we’ve taken our commitment to the next level with Orbit. Comodo Orbit brings such a level of ease and simplicity to capturing dynamic footage that we are all very excited to see how filmmakers across the country will use the product when it reaches their hands.”
 
“For the first time in a very long time, filmmakers will be able to create films without being hindered by the process of creating them.”
 
Orbit will arrive at a street price of $1,499 and is currently available for pre-order now at select authorized resellers across the USA. Product shipments will begin March 1, 2014.
 
B&H has the Comodo Orbit Handheld Stabilization Rig available for ordering (shipping in 7-10 days).

Nikon BlackRapid Logo
From Nikon:
 
TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the Quick-Draw Strap and the Quick-Draw Strap S, two new products developed in cooperation with world-renowned American camera accessory manufacturer, BlackRapid.
 
Overview:

Nikon BlackRapid Quick-Draw Strap

Nikon BlackRapid Quick-Draw Strap S

The Quick-Draw Strap and Quick-Draw Strap S were developed based on quick-draw straps invented by photographer and BlackRapid founder, Ron Henry, and popular throughout the market for their incredible convenience. The straps have been further refined to offer even greater convenience.
 
Along with the great mobility offered by BlackRapid products through specifications that enable on-the-go shooting with a mechanism that allows the camera to slide diagonally up and down the shoulder strap, a system that utilizes the camera's tripod socket so that the camera hangs upside down for a smooth grip, a shoulder pad that effectively distributes weight for less burden, and an under-arm tether that holds the strap firmly in place, these two new straps offer an even greater sense of security with a safety strap that prevents the camera from falling in the unlikely event the fastener comes loose, and a cover that prevents the carabiner that connects the strap to the camera from scratching the camera body.
 
The Quick-Draw Strap, with a wider shoulder pad, is suited to use with digital SLR cameras. The Quick-Draw Strap S, with a narrower shoulder pad, is suited to use with Nikon 1 advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses and Nikon COOLPIX compact digital cameras.
 
B&H carries BlackRapid straps.
