Canon EOS 5DC, Real or a Joke?

By Canon Rumors | April 19, 2012

Real or a Joke?
I received this tidbit of fun when I was at NAB, just getting around to posting it. It shows a model name “5DC” on an official Canon web site. The one issue I see with the “leak” is that it originated on April 1, so maybe a Canon employee was having some fun?

Anyway, here’s the evidence and direct quote from the submission.

Canon 5DC: Real or Joke?

Direct Quote
Go to google and search for “eos 5dc” without the quotes.

Now if you click the link, the page is missing, but if you look at google’s cached version of that page, it has titles and headlines for a Canon Eos 5DC (which I am currently hoping for). But the actual content of the page is for the C300.

But it also says that this was a google snapshot done on April 1, so is this a cruel April fool’s joke for true Canon rumor junkies? See the screen shot. I have a few more scrolling down the page if you need.
