Title: Canon Announcement Tonight? [CR2]
Post by: Canon Rumors on April 07, 2013, 03:33:19 PM

Update

Possibly 3 announcements tonight for the cinema/video line.


A vague report

We’re told Canon is going to announce something tonight for the opening of NAB 2013.


We’ve heard in the past that an entry level Cinema EOS camera could be coming, though a confirmation of such never came.


We could also just get some firmware or development announcements. I do not expect an EOS DSLR.


We’ll post as we hear more…

I hope so. Been holding off on the 5D III partly because there was no f/8 AF firmware yet. Still waiting to see how the 7D II turns out, but eventually I'll probably be getting a 5D III one way or the other.

Seriously, I wouldn't mind a 5D C or something, just take the photo capability away and stick in the c100 internals. Black Magic is going all in with there new cameras. I might have to make the jump if Canon doesn't bring something to the table this week...

I pulled the post, left this thread.

An overzealous helper posted information from a bad email, I was travelling to LV at the time and couldn't catch it.

100 apologies from both of us.

That's okay! We are in the rumors forum for a reason...so fingers crossed for a good Nab Show with some big news from Canon. Thanks guys!

Hey, It's a rumours site.... if they all came true you would have called it CanonAdvanceFacts.....

Keep up the good work. I really enjoy this forum.
