Hey Franz, is the position/orientation of the moon consistent with what one would see in Australia?

it´s photographed in utah anayway.

The landscape is allegedly from Utah but given its a double exposure and the moon doesn't orient with the scene the moon could have been taken anywhere.

I am counting the days!!!

You could of at least posted the days to save us the trouble.

After looking at the photos and trying to determine the amount of vertical squishing of the LCD display caused by the perspective I really don't think the LCD is any where close to 16:9 instead it's closer to 1.4:1 or maybe even 4:3.

If you calculate the number of pixels the known round exposure compensation dial is verticially compared to horizontal you see the camera is squished about 32% vertically.    Also if you compare the camera in picture's dimensions to a 5DmII's actual dimensions (and assume they are the same) you determine about the same squish.   

Measuring the LCD screen in the picture reveals its approximately 137 pixels wide and 63 pixels horizontal.   Taking into account the squish it becomes 137 pixels x 97 pixels or about 1.4:1.

These are all approximations but it's no where close to 16:9.

I think the mystery camera is a new Rebel.  I don't see that option.

I've always believed that shooting stills was just a fad that would soon pass

I've ascertained from the picture of the LCD display of the bird that this prototype camera has at least 100MP!  This is based on the following assumptions:

1. the LCD has at least a pixel count of the 7D  (921,600 pixels) and has approximate dimensions of 1174 x 785 pixels (3:2)
2. the professional Canon photographer is not a pixel peeper (he's not viewing at over 1:1)

My calculations are based on the small box showing that approximately 1/7th- 1/8th of image's narrow edge is being displayed which would put the resolution at least 12327 x 8218 or 101,303,286 total pixels.

The battery grip is not integrated, the dented thing under the LCD is the attachment screw between body and grip

I think is integrated

Well, no, it's not.  But if you think it's integrated, what do you think that knurled thumbwheel on the grip with "lock" printed next to it will unlock if turned in the direction opposite the arrow?

a magical megapixel dial?

Unless this is indeed a Canon leak and they put the tape there just to mess with us

I like the tape.  Clearly it's intended to hide the Canon logo.  Because attaching the camera to a big white lens give absolutely no clue as to its brand.

I thought it was a Sony  :o

It's clearly a Ricoh clone of a Canon camera.

I think it's cool that a Canon tester is wearing a Ricoh scarf on a safari test shoot :-)

My guess is that the camera on the 600mm lens is either a 5DIII or the forthcoming Ciné DSLR that has been discussed so much.  Certainly no pop-up flash on that thing, and a much bigger prism than the 7D...

I think the photographer just gave away that Ricoh and Canon are soon to announce a merger.

Did anyone else notice the bird on LCD is the thought-to-be-extinct Ivory Billed Woodpecker?   This gets more interesting every second.

"The 700px thing became unenforceable pretty quickly."

Seems trivial to enforce: just don't pick any entry who didn't follow the rules.

Images must be 700px wide on their longest axis. Larger and smaller are not permitted.

The 1st underwater finalist was originally posted as 1800px by 1200px.
