Title: Is This the EOS 3D?
Post by: Canon Rumors on June 17, 2013, 01:13:50 PM
An image worth investigating
Below are some screencaps that I received today from a Chinese forum called “Weibo”. In it, you will see a blurred out Canon camera, which isn’t all that significant.

However, on the strap we see what appears to be “EOS 3D”, I do not see a fold in the strap that would possibly be hiding a “0″ for the 30D, nor is it a 7.

What do you think?

Looks like a 3 to me...but if they were trying to keep it secret then why would they make a strap for it instead of just a standard canon one?

Exactly. I once had a strap with Mickey Mouse on it, didn't mean my camera was made by Disney.

Agree that it is not likely to be 3D strap from canon.  Does anyone recognize the person in the picture?

I think the strap is for this camera. hehe

BTW, if you want a camera strap for 2D, 3D, 4D, 8D, 9D or whatever, you may custom order one easily nowadays.

It could be a 2D also, but my guess it is more likely a 7.

Hanging around Europ with unprecedented "3D" logo on a Canon-type neck strap, I believe that is against Canon's test policy -- break it, if that guy doesn't care his privilege.   Which made me think rather it is faked, unless Canon wants to leak such info intentionally.

From the guy's twitter-like content, we can tell that he explicitly wrote he is "travelling and testing something simultaneously".

I recall a similar thread a few years back. Went nowhere.

If a camera is in development or testing, they aren't going to slap a strap on it that broadcasts the model number.

It's a slow day at Rumor Central. Can't blame CR Guy for throwing a little chum into the waters to see if he can stir up some page views. But, no reason to swallow this one. Move along. Nothing to see here.

On the other hand – anybody recognize the other camera in his hand.

And my binoculars have a strap on them that says "Canon 60D"...... and my 70-200 lens has a cap on it that says "Olympus".... labels can be deceiving.

Sadly, the strap appears to be based on the same technology as the last several generations of straps.

Agreed.  The blacks are no blacker, the whites are no whiter, therefore no improvement in strap dynamic range.  Plus, still the same issue with oversaturation of the red channel.

Another question to ask: why did they blur the camera but not the strap??

I think the answer is that they were intentionally leaking the camera.
The Sony A99 was leaked this way - by first leaking a photo of its strap.

I vote that the 2D/3D is real and that this is an intentional leak 8).
We are likely (very?) close to announcement.

He's been contemplating what to do in the forums for a while, now he's made a decision.  I highly doubt he's trying to rub anyone's face in it or brag; he's just excited.  Don't you get excited when you get something new?

Erm... wait, no that's not it... he's probably just excited and wanted to let other people know what he owns, much like your signature. Congrats Dylan, I hope to pick up a second 5D3 someday soon (Actually my wife does, she's stuck with the 7D when we shoot weddings together =)

If it is a 2D/3D which is hard to discern due to the visible info on the strap is it at least a non 1D line body. But they'd better give it a three, price tag will still be high this way. 5Diii 3,5k so if this one is a "3", they might ask at least 4.5 k USD for it.  Anyone correct me please. This way they can hardly beat the D800. At this price they would be fine to present new sensor tech as well... my two cents

Note to self: Get some Canon replica camera straps made asap with 7D Mark II, 2D, 1D Xii, 1D S, 3D and 4D, try to hide them a little then walk taking pictures of myself. Maybe get Nikon to sponsor the shirt, and Sony the second camera ;D 8) . This could be fun.

Why do they insist on bundling those stupid straps still? The ones from my 5D2 and 5D3 are still in their boxes, untouched. I just can't use something like that. It feels like some of the money has been wasted.


The last decent strap I got with a brand new Canon was a nice Domke which came with my EOS 1n back in 1996.


It's been on every SLR I've owned since.

I want to know about the garage door opener he has around his neck. 

I think the photo is faked.  The strap is twisted back slightly, potentially folded.  Look at the brightness of the top of the "3"  It is too bright compared to the EOS. 

I think the lens is a 70-200 2.8 without the tripod ring.  Anybody else know for sure what it is?

1. I do not think Canon will have a "EOS 3D" strap  to be used on a real EOS 3D that they do not want to be identified.
2. The edge of the strap looks like "flake fur". Will Canon use such kind of material for the camera strap?
3. The Chinese Text says " picture taken at the end of certain year" . therefore the picture is taken at the end of last year at the latest, may be even earlier.

there are only two possibilities here:

2. Canon intentionally leaked the photo ( see 5D3 photo leaks... the body turned out exactly as in the leaked pictures)

Nobody wears a camera strap out in the public saying:...Hey! I test the newest Canon DSLR prototype.

P.S. Eventually Canon must come with a serious competitor to Nikon D800 regarding studio work.

Exactly! If it would be a prototype being tested, any manufacturer would obviously not put any name markers on it (and certainly not on the strap).

While the strap in this photo is exciting and indicative of Canon's thinking on this essential accessory going forward, the camera itself seems to be the bigger story. It seems the new EOS 3 series is going to be a fuzzy device. Of course a single photo cannot tell us everything, but we can only hope that the exciting new ergonomics associated with having a camera that you not only aim but pet will also have advances internally.

while people are pointing out that "why would he openly wear the strap of an unannounced camera", note that he is wearing the strap "upside down", with the lettering turned in. it is only because it is half twisted in this side on view that we can see it.

i.e the strap is being very deliberately worn in a non-traditional manner.

I guess the question is why would Canon make a custom strap for a camera that is not available in the market?

Maybe the strap is from an old eos30 film camera

This post is not worthy to be on this forum.
It is obviously not a test camera.

Five pages of comments and you come up with this???  ;D

The site is Canon "Rumors" after all and they MUST report all rumors however absurd, stupid, silly, bizarre or ludicrous they may be ;)

It's the super-secret 9D..... A camera so secret that it uses the number of a different rumoured camera on it's strap....

Funny. I bought a "1DV" labled strap for my Camera some years ago. When I was shooting at the soccer WCS some persons looked very interrested at ma Cam ;-)
Just take a Mamiya 7 II .....


By the way: When I was on the F1 race in Monaco some weeks ago, I saw an photographer with the 200-400 4.0, using an unknown camera, as old fashioned as these pictures, without an extra eye-finder.  A quadratic camera with no esthetic forms. Like self-built. But it was definitively not self built.
I wonder, if another company uses the Canon mount? But wich one?

IT probably was a video camera of some kind, there are a few that do use the canon mounts even if it is via an adapter,  like the black magic that would fit your quadratic no esthetic form that you saw.

As for the camera strap in question, my hunch is that it is a rip off 3D logo-ed strap that you could probably buy in some camera store in shanghai.

Aside from a video camera, it could've been a sound blimp.

Perhaps that is an EOS-3eye strap, dating back to the film camera.

I just hope that when Canon finally comes out with the 3D, it really is 3-D (they can then sell you two L lenses at a time instead of one).

So if the camera could speak it would say: My name is D ... 9D  ;D

Exactly! and this only helps to illustrate the futility of waiting for announcements on a replacement for the 007D

Just found this, by clicking on a wrong link:
http://canonrumorsita.blogspot.it/2012/07/canon-sta-testando-un-sensore-da-47mp.html (http://canonrumorsita.blogspot.it/2012/07/canon-sta-testando-un-sensore-da-47mp.html)
Yes, I thought what you think. I post it 'cause maybe someone will come up with new jokes...

Lazy google translation:
Canon is testing a 47MP sensor. This would be the infamous 3D, it seems that Canon wants to dedicate this body to the sphere of professional photographic studios. This item comes directly from a person in Japan claims to have picked up the prototype, equal in all respects to a 5D mkIII but with the sensor replaced and without logo. The density of pixels within this sensor should be noted that values ​​are similar to those found in Canon's APS-C sensor 18MP Canon has already been launched in bodies like the 7D. You could then say that Canon will in the coming years to fragment their camera bodies according to the primary use, for example by placing this in the field of 3D product photography and industrial landscapes in high resolution.

It could be a cheap rip-off strap. Buy why would you put it on a professional grade camera? Interesting photos.

i.e the strap is being very deliberately worn in a non-traditional manner.

Perhaps a better question would be "why does anyone use the supplied strap anyway?"

They're awful (uncomfortable and too slippery), they advertise "steal me" to nere-do-wells, and they're difficult to install.

I recommend a nice neoprene strap (I like Optech but there are plenty of other options) and a C-Loop from Custom SLR.

I usually put a black plastic tape on the canon brand name and model name and but a old Nikon strap on it, unluckily the white lens body and the red ring on the len give it away. but the grandmas and aunties think I use Nikon.

Spend 20$ and buy an Nikon D400 strap in Hongkong.
My husband did - and he was more interresting for the men with the biiiiig lenses then all of the "bunnys" who went around at the Nürburgring on Saturday and Sunday.  ;)
