I can't promise a level of excitement like the C300 announcement, but at least there WILL be a 5D Mark III, so it will be better than Geraldo and the vault.

Official announcement here a bit later today.

EOS Bodies / Re: NO 5dM3 On Friday * CONFIRMED By a canon Rep Today
« on: February 29, 2012, 12:11:45 PM »

I work for a big camera shop in Canada and Our rep Canon CONFIRMED to us today that its a rebel series thats is gonna be announce On friday March 2, 2012... probably T4-i
Something else he didnt want to tell me will be announcing in the next 2 month

Sorry For party stoping!

The why CR doesn't have any rumors about new Rebel lately

I mentioned the T4i last week, it'll come with a new 18-135 with a silent AF motor. Other than that, no one is talking about it. I think the world is focused on the more sought after 5D3.

EOS Bodies / *UPDATE* Here's an Invite for March 2, 2012
« on: February 29, 2012, 08:18:00 AM »

Lots of chatter

A lot of people have been wondering where the invite graphics are for the event on March 2, 2012 that will bring the 5D Mark III to the world. I have confirmed events in Singapore, Paris and Shanghai as well. I’m sure many more major cities will see events.

Here you go.

5D Mark III on Friday

It’s sure to be a great day, and we’ll be here to cover it all.

thanks Tovich

The Shanghai Event

Here’s some pictures of the event setup in Shanghai. I’ll wager they’re not doing all that work for jokes.

Getting ready in Shanghai

I see you Jackie Chan!

thanks jchl97

March 2 will be the date for the 5D replacement. Confirmation of events in France and Singapore. There may be something else on February 28 and things were reversed, I am trying to confirm that.
So yes, I changed the announcement date rated [CR3]. I may catch a little flack for that, but it had to be done.

Sorry to insist, jet the [CR3] that there are two announcements, one on 27/28.2. and on 2.3. is at least invalidated for the first bit --- nothing here, and 28th has passed.
Still hoping for the 2.3. though.

Ouch, that'll be some negative karma for me, I assume (and somebody will get rated down from being a CR3-source for sure by Craig)

The issue with Feb 28 was a miscommunication that I take responsibility for.

I deleted the posts in this thread that named some person that is allegedly with Canon Canada. Naming people can lead to bad things for that person, so I'm going to be on the side of caution.

This is one very very long week!!!!!

Tell me about it... I'm going to sleep all weekend.

EOS Bodies / Re: An announcement today or what?
« on: February 28, 2012, 08:04:50 AM »
It doesn't look like today. I know for sure a new Rebel is coming, I didn't think they'd announce it on the same day as a 5D3.

Everyone went silent after the pics leaked yesterday, so no one is answering my emails. :)

It's on great authority that March 2 is the announcement date. Unless, they decide to out it tonight because everyone has seen it already.

This happened with the 7D launch, we had pretty much everything out. However, they still held it to the planned release date and added "as anticipated Canon is pleased to announce" (or something like that) to the beginning of the press release.

I was 90% sure it was going to be 5D Mark III, but I wasn't saying anything until it was 100%.

PowerShot / Re: Quick & Dirty Review: Canon PowerShot G1 X
« on: February 26, 2012, 07:54:16 PM »
I would have liked in the review to see the shallowest DOF this camera can achieve. Everything you showed didn't isolate anything. My biggest gripe is the slow lens, not size or price.

My next issue would be low light shooting. I would hope that teh larger sensor would help, but then back to the slow lens, I am hesistant to test with my wallet.

However, what you did show looked great.

I want to do some portrait headshots with the G1 X, that'll get done this week and I'll update the review. I'll also do some real low light stuff. I hate to just show "test" photos.


PowerShot / Re: Quick & Dirty Review: Canon PowerShot G1 X

Two things: you didn't mention that it doesn't have as close-focusing a macro mode as the G12. Of course, one wouldn't expect this in a large sensor camera.
Also, you cane switch to a 3:2 format in the Function menu.
Otherwise, a fine succinct review.

Macro... I never shoot it, but that will be mentioned as I update the review over the next couple of weeks.

The 3:2 setting in the menu crops the screen to the new ratio, however you still get a 4:3 jpg and RAW file. The RAW file has the 3:2 crop marks and auto crops in DPP.


Lenses / Re: What's your favorite Canon lens and why?
« on: February 26, 2012, 07:14:48 PM »
The EF 24 f/1.4L II

I use 2 crops, the APS-H and full frame... I think it works perfectly on both for my shooting style.

It's sharp, fringe resistent, has a pleasing vignette wide open on full frame and has been super reliable.


PowerShot / Quick & Dirty Review: Canon PowerShot G1 X

Review! I have given my initial impressions of Canon’s new PowerShot G1 X in a quick review of the camera.

Spoiler alert…. I like it.

I have enjoyed my first day or so with the camera. I understand some of the critical points about the camera, others I don’t. I don’t understand why it’s knocked for being too big, I think the size is just about perfect.

I know lots of people wanted an APS-C “G” camera for $299. For those people, you’re going to have to wait a little while longer. I will say I don’t feel ripped off at $800, and I definitely wouldn’t when the camera gets down to the $650-$700 range.

EOS Bodies / Canon 5D Mark II Price Drops March 4, 2012
« on: February 26, 2012, 09:10:12 AM »
Pay less! The 5D Mark II will see price drops starting on March 4, 2012.

Waiting to get confirmation of what the drop will be, but it may get back down to the Christmas pricing of $1999.

Back and forth between February 28 and March 2. Both dates might be good, but I have 100% confirmed the next 5D for March 2. I'll spend today finding out what, if anything is February 28.
