New Canon 5D Mark III rumor
« on: July 08, 2011, 01:41:25 PM »
I dont know how long it will stay on youtube, but here is a link to a "preview" of the Canon 5d mark III...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7_7W8E-bi8

Camera looks the same as the current 5D mark II but with a Mark III badge... claims to have 45 pt AF, 8 FPS, digic 5, 28.1 MP, 50-12800 ISO...  Interesting except for the ISO kinda sounds iffy to be lower than the Mark II.  Nicely done but short clips of the camera and too similar to the Mark II sounds off to me...  Claims to be coming soon in the fall... No mention of video... anyways enjoy and it'll be interesting to read the reply's haha. 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

8 FPS in a FF non-1-series?  Too many AF points to fit Canon's strategy?  I declare shenanigans.   :P
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

I am waiting so eagerly for this item that I am ready to watch such fakes  :P, but I don't like this fake commercial, it's just too fast.

That's what I thought... I had to pause it when certain clips came up so I can see if i can see any new buttons or not... Looked identical to mark II other than the badge and the "features"... I hope the coming this fall thing is true though...

Is this an overly dramatic fake... almost certainly.

Still fun though.  That's why we're all here after all, rumors.

I want to think the same thing, but that said when the leaked images of the 7d came out a few years ago I was certain they were fake... I was wrong so I dont know what to believe now... Plus apple is good at leaking stuff if not anything but to guage peoples reactions, maybe this is canon's way to guage our reaction?  Or im overthinking canon haha.   ;D

It's all still photos, (a video would be much harder to fake) It's a 5DII.  The Extra I has been photoshopped in.  No lock on the mode dial?  No improvements like a video/still photo switch that's on all the newer canons??

Well, if you plug the description into Google Translate you get: "Fictitious advertising - ÃœBA project during the June / July 2011 with Anton"

You think that might be a hint?

The giveaway for me was promoting the "Digic V Processor." Nobody but techno geeks cares about what number a processor is or even if a camera has a new processor.

Oh well it was fun while it lasted... they put a fair amount of work into creating that so kudos for them for their creativity...

Left most I in Mark III has been added

I froze the frame that shows the Mark III badge.  If you look carefully and compare the left most I to the word MARK and the right two I's, the left most I is much brighter and solid texture while the other letters are faded and have texture.  See attachement

Definitely a fake - QED or perhaps I should say EMDW (Elementary My Dear Watson!)

I thought it was funny that it was "showcased" with the 50 1.2L .   Have the lens and love it, but doubt it would be used in this kind of announcement.

Either way, the original uploader said it was fake and that he did it for a school project.
