Title: One Week Away From FEBRUARY 28, 2012.
Post by: Nick888 on February 21, 2012, 01:59:11 PM
Exactly only one week away from the [CR3] rumor of the next CANON FF DSLR Announcement. How come everything is still very quiet?

Because Canon was taking lessons from Steve Jobs? Regardless, I just cleared enough space on my Amex to be able to pre-order as soon as it's available.

It's the calm before the storm.

I hope a Feb 28th announcement is true.  Gives me time to cancel my D800 order if Canon blows me away.   ;D

Can't wait for BIG announcement but hope:
1. Products available within 2-3 months.
2. Reasonable ie  5D3= $3k-3.5K max!!  Anything above I will buy 5D2.
3. More lens announcements.....

I wonder if Canon will put the Mark II in the CLP program when the next replacement is announced. At 1599 it would be tough decision (for myself) if the Mark III/X is coming in around 3K.

5D Mark II + 70-200 IS II (After selling 70-200 F/4) or Replacement

I've had my 7D for just over two years and have been waiting to go full frame...was going to purchase a 5D Mk2 but have decided to hold off to see what is announced...

Not counting the 1Dx early announcement...Does anyone know historically what the time difference has actually been from when a camera has been announced to when it's actually shipping?

NDA's, the unknown potential multimonth gap between announcement date and general availability at camera stores?

I'm not in the rush to buy  mrk III , because mrk II is serving me just fine.

However...I'm curios what mrk III has to offer - can't wait to see real spec. ;)

my wish list is simple, a decent flash.
better recycle rate
simple control button (not CFM Hell)
light balancing diffusers would be a nice touch.
built in radio control, game changer...

Are you talking about the new FF camera or a flash? None of the current lineup of Canon FF camera bodies have built in flash.

Now, built in radio trigger - that would be very cool in the new FF body.

I think he meant new flash that was also mentioned in some of latest 5D X/III posts :)

Built in radio trigger would be pretty amazing. Bonus points if it's compatible with PocketWizards, or one of the other good quality radio triggers.

Think I'll finally upgrade from the 10D with this latest announcement!

New camera or not, i have to agree it will be Feb 28 in a week. that is CR3 in my book.

I think we will see a new camera or 2 in the near future, 0-3 months.  It will be awesome, but will not outclass the 1DX, as a few people seem to be wishing for.  And My 5D2 is hanging tough in the mean time.

You know Canon probably have a few people dedicated in getting general feedback regarding their products watching internet forums blow up and speculation and hypothetical dates and such and they are sitting there just laughing their butts off.  I'm all in for this new product but until i see white paper on this product, I'm not getting hysterical yet.

Maybe CR Guy is not publishing any specs because while testing it in Ecuador, he sees, that specs from rumors are not worth a thing? I assume he can't write anything what he's testing but what comes to his mailbox, he possibly could.

LOL :)

1.  CR Guy does not get advance information or test cameras from Canon.

2.  He does get a lot of e-mailed rumors from peopole he does not know, and are just passing on something they read about.  These people are not in the know either.

3.  There is a third group, that have provided reliable information in the past, and may have access to information about new bodies.  He is extremely careful to protect these sources, and does not post anything that might identify them, if he does, they may lose their job.

4.  Mose CR3 rumors come from dealers or other reliable web sites that accidentally show information before they are supposed to.  These sources get shut down quickly, and do not get info in the future.  Do not expect CR3 info until someone gets careless and lets a web page go live.

Really anxious now that my 7D took a tripod dive in Durango over the weekend.  Its getting repaired but that will take weeks (Mack damage warranty pays off!)

Now I really feel the heat for a second camera.  Or actually my new primary if its a full frame. 

C'mon Canon, stop teasing us with blank stare and silence!  I know, we are doing this to ourselves... but it really becomes dire if we start seeing D800's on the Photo lines without a 5D upgrade equivalent in the pipe.

Feb 28?  March 1? 

April 1?

@Scalesusa: I'm referring to jokes here, that CR Guy went testing new bodies. I'm pretty sure people didn't write it seriously, neiher did I. I am convinced that you are credible people and I appreciate this work you're doing here.
Sorry if my joke made you write this explanation.
There is only one week left, according to rumors about NDA's until March 2 and everybody's here hungry for some more information.

Sorry if I misunderstood.  There are posters who actually believe that CR Guy has inside information and is the source of the rumors, rather than a reporter.

We are all waiting to hear, then it gets boring for the next 3 or 4 years.

1.  CR Guy does not get advance information or test cameras from Canon.

2.  He does get a lot of e-mailed rumors from peopole he does not know, and are just passing on something they read about.  These people are not in the know either.

All in all there better be a 5D replacement with at least slightly better iso performance and a much better focus system and around 3 grand....
