so.....When will Canon have USB Type C connector?

They made a promise to use the best type c connection available even if that connection came from another manufacturer. Right now they are working with Sony to include their type c connectors into the newest EOS cameras. I'd still give it a couple of years. :D

I think it was only this year that Canon started using USB 3 on their SLRs. Perhaps in 5 years?

You're looking at it all wrong!

I want to hook up a keyboard and mouse to my DLSR. (wifi and external displays already do).

Now, with the right OS, the whole setup could replace my laptop!

I'm a little late to the party on this, but I only JUST realized* that some USB 3 connectors are not backwards compatible, and that all the lovely dedicated bales I have for DSLR controller that work great with no adapters on my 5D3, will not fit the 7D2! :p

*... I have 4 external USB 3 drives all using this "new" connector, but I am a dufus and never put it together that this was a "standard" thing.. :lol:

What am I missing here? Of all the things I wish for in the next refresh of cameras, the type of USB port was never a thought. Give me more dynamic range, better noise control, faster and more accurate autofocus at narrower aperture in dimmer light, make the cameras more affordable (ha, as if that would ever happen), perhaps even more pixels.

But the USB connector???

All features allow the photographer to do what they need to do. more DR allows the unskilled to develop RAW from incorrectly exposed photos. More AF points helps with focusing, better noise means better low light abilty.

Just like a articulating isn't curital to the performace or the photographers ability in using a camera, but it's still a nice feature to have.

the same goes for this adaptor. this adaptor is more than just connecting your camera to your PC. the power and the amount of data that this adaptor can handle means it can do more than just transfer files.

So what's on your mind in terms of "more?"

On my mind is connecting to industry-standard audio mixers, monitors, et cetera.

in theory yes, but of course it's up to canon and everyone else to use it in this manner.

In this matter, though, Canon is the tail, not the dog. Canon's money is in making a camera that connects to lots of other things right now, right out of the box, not making a camera that will connect to things that may be adapted by the end of the camera's model life.

The USB Type-C connector is coming and it's universal. meaning both ends can be the same. Apple have just released a laptop with the only connector, google has release a new chromebook with the same connector so when will Canon get rid of the usb3 type connectors and save space and use the new connector

http://cdn2.expertrevi​ews.co.uk …/usb-type-c-renders_0.jpg (external link)

it also can push more power thru the connector meaning they should be able to have it charge the battery via the camera. You could also use it to output video and lets not forget that it's faster than USB3 :)

I would have thought the new 5DS/R would have come with this port.

Oh blimey, the USB-C is really new tech. Also, the USB-C connects to the computer, so if you can find a USB-mini to USB-C, fine, then buy it

I find it interesting that one of the driving issues that resulted in the USB-C connector is physical size. Many of the newest laptops are 13.1 mm at their thickest point, which leaves little space for for the 7.5 mm standard USB socket. Internally some vertical space is needed to connect most likely to a circuit board and externally some clearance is needed for the physical plug itself.

Now, having said that, I also remember many thread here on how image downloads are accomplished and have seen many an individual state they are concerned about just how rugged the connector is and therefore op to remove the card and use a card reader. But now we are talking about a smaller connector and connecting even more devices!
