Thank you BTW for supporting my assessment that 2015 will be a dry year for 5D and 1D replacements. Other than no major sporting events of the caliber of the Olympics or World Cup there is the thing about product life cycles.August 2016.
I must say that I find it a little amusing that on a rumour site where you are giving your opinion of a theory with regards to the future 5D and 1D product line from Canon, that you ignore two of the world's largest sporting events.
Cricket World Cup:
and the Rugby World Cup:
They may not be sports that are popular in the Philippines, a country I love, but I can assure you they are right up there with FIFA World Cup and Olympics.
But we already discussed that earlier in the thread. It is always easy to theorise when you select which facts to omit, ignore or manipulate.
(although, granted, more popular than some may think, cricket is huge in India and they have a ridiculously huge population, but all the same come not bigger the Olympics)
umm no, what?
I did not say the Cricket World Cup and Rugby World Cup are bigger than the Olympics, I said they are major global sporting events that attract b
illions of viewers.
Cricket is huge in India, Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, England and a lot of other countries.
Rugby is also huge in a lot of countries around the world and is even played here in Asia Pacific where Japan and South Korea are the best teams, with China and HK fast getting better. Most other nations here are not very good at it, but this is for many reasons including sport education, marketing and history.
The final with England v Australia in the Rugby World Cup was viewed by some 3billion if I remember correctly and was broadcast in 205 countries.
Anyway, this is not about sport. I was just making the point that there are
major international sporting events in 2015. I only mentioned the two biggest, and those two are massive. There are also plenty of other smaller events that do not compare to the Olympics and FIFA world cup.
Back to cameras?
