Canon Announcements at CES 2015

Canon hasn't announced any new DSLRs at CES 2015 (Nikon did Announced the D5500) but they did announce a slew of new P&S cameras and an interesting base station/external disk/NAS.Screenshot 2015-01-06 16.14.32The Connect Station CS100, available in April for $299, is designed as an all-purpose destination for all the files on your camera, touch an NFC enabled camera to the station and via wifi your images are loaded onto the 1TB drive. The station allows connecting to computers, smartphones and tablets over the web while storing everything locally. Your own personal cloud that lives in the house. I am personally curious to see if the NFC and Wifi tech is included in the next Rebel (the T6i) and how well this will work with Lightroom.Where is the Canon T6i announcement? Probably in Early February.Canon P&S Cameras announced (all compatible with the Connect Station CS100)The PowerShot SX710 HS $349 | Pre-order from B&H PhotoHeadline Feature: Slight update to the excellent all around travel camera - Good sensor, plenty of zoom, Wifi and still pocketable.Screenshot 2015-01-06 16.21.25
