Canon PowerShot G5 X Release Date

May 2018

When Are Most New Canon Cameras Released?

We couldn't see any prominent trend in the release dates for new Canon digital cameras over the last 3 years.

August was the biggest month last year for new Canon cameras, with five new Canon cameras released that month. Four new Canon digital cameras were released in January 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new Canon camera releases. In 2016 most new Canon cameras were released in January as well, with five new Canon cameras released that month.

.

How Fast Do Canon Digital Camera Prices Drop After Release?

Canon cameras tend to depreciate faster than most digital cameras.

Most digital cameras drop in price by 4% in the first 6 months after release. New Canon cameras drop in price by an average of 6% in the first 6 months after they wer first released. That means that on a typical Canon camera costing £1,061 you could save on average £60 by waiting 6 months before buying.
