WPPI - biggest wedding photographer convention at the end of this month.

5D MK II - Biggest wedding photographer camera for canon.

June 2012 - Start of wedding season.

It would be a smart move for canon - but I still think they're hoping to sell a few 1DX's to the desperate first.

Hey,

I am waiting for 650D, as I think previous iterations were announced every year at CP+ at the +-same time :)

Yeah, the 1DX is a perfect wedding camera - covers all the bases, not jst a few.
2 of those and you're pretty much sorted for a few years...

If they announce the 5DmkII replacement on Feb 28th as per the rumors this might give enought time to get this puppy into the hands of wedding photographer for the summer hopefully...

Is the 5D the biggest wedding camera? I see a lot more 1Ds III's and now the 1D X is here.

Announcements are made during the week BEFORE the show starts. 

This is because Canon will have the newly announced models on display (at least a model or prototype).  It makes no sense to make a announcement AFTER you put it on display, and the show's purpose it to hype your equipment with show and tell.

Yeah, especially that it's big enough that you can defend yourself from bridezilla (http://www.whattheduck.net/strip/597) with it if things get out of hand :-)

Wow.  If that doesn't put the fear into wedding photography, nothing will!  Thanks for scaring sharing!

I've seen a number of women wedding photographers who much prefer the 5D MK II for its size.  I have big hands, and like the big body, but it does depend on the person. 

The 1D MK IV has had complaints from big name wedding photographers for its marginal low light autofocus.  The 5D MK II is outstanding in low light with the center point.

Too late. I've never ever seen they announce anything of substance once the show is already going.

Looks like it's the EOS Cinema DSLR Concept that was mentioned when the C300 was announced.

While the press release is interesting, saying for 4k video it will crop close to aps-h, the body is the exact same as a 1dx, as in a rebadged 1dx. (http://bertstephani.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/20111026_canon-1DX-London_017.jpg)

I wonder what sparked that fight? It reminded me of this video. Crazy Russians indeed.

Back on topic...... I'm confused by this Cinema DSLR. Anything I've read on it only speaks of video. What about stills? I can't see this being mainly for video if they are making the C300, right?

Canon showed the model and mentioned it was under development when they introduced the C300.  It will be more of a video camera that also does stills.  Its in a 1D body for the prototype, but that may not be the final configuration. Maybe we will see it this fall?
