The 3D will have eye-controlled focus and a blink-activated shutter. You heard it here first.   :P

But Nikon is working on thought-controlled cameras.....

And the photographer would have to think in Russian?

Is Clint involved in this?

Blast from the past.

Anyone know what Canon camera is in this below linked picture?  Never seen one with the red piece by the hotshoe.   

http://500px.com/photo/26318243

Update:Even more suspicious is the Canon logo has been removed, this has a pop-up flash and looks to be in new condition.  Can't place the lens either the more I look at this - size wise looks like the 85mm 1.2 but the bulge appears different by the camera mount from the current 85,1.2???

Supporting what others have said - 7D, if you look through this guys gallery he has loads of photos snapped with a 7D.



Dont know but that red piece somehow makes the body look bad@$$/Evil. Could that red panel indicate pro-line series/bodies like the rings are for their L series lenses? Or it could very well be modified by the user who knows :P

Definitely a gripped 7D.  There's no lock button on the mode wheel (as mentioned), and the top LCD function buttons are rounded, without the 5Dm3 style nipple on the right most button.  So clearly an "older" (not pre-production) model.  The only difference between the camera in the picture and a factory 7D is the red strip at the top, which is either photoshopped or an after market addition.  No further conjecture necessary.
5D mark III, 7D, Sigma 12-24mm II, TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II, 24-70mm f/2.8L II, Sigma 35mm f/1.4, Sigma 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II, 85mm f/1.2L II, 100mm f/2.8L, 135mm f/2L, 2x TC III

Lens is the 50L. Camera looks like a 7D.  If it was a new body, it would have the locking mode dial. The 7D has a separate piece of plastic where that red piece is, would be one click with the PS magic wand and a color change.

That's what it looks like to me as well. As for the red panel, could also be paint or tape. Perhaps a test body?

I don't want to falsely accuse someone, but does anyone else think there is something weird going on with this picture? The monk's left hand isn't supporting the camera and doesn't appear to be anywhere near the camera actually. I can't imagine why anyone would Photoshop the camera in and maybe it's just my imagination, but something doesn't look right.

You are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. It is a cut-paste job. This jumped out at me the moment I saw the photo.

Well, it's a pretty decent job, I would say.

I know that this is a bit off topic but I couldn't help to notice an X-Pro2 and a X-E2 down the Fuji line for this year! Are you serious? The E-X1 haven't even had one year since its launch and now there is an X-E2??? Makes you wonder the reliability of these predictions.

I noticed it, too!
Can't wait to see these two from Fuji and the Olympus OM-D EM-7!

As for me, I'm really excited for the 70D to come out. I was relatively surprised to see it appear as potentially coming out, but I suppose Canon would want to appeal to the "soccer moms" and such as little leauge soccer and baseball seasons are starting up. The features I'm most excited about that would potentially appear on this camera are an improved AF system and improved hish ISO performance. After all, if the 7D MkII is supposed more of a professional camera somewhere in the upper $2K range, then the 70D needs to somehow fill the gap without driving the price up too high. I wonder how they're going to do that....

With the D7100 showcasing a 24MP sensor with no optical low-pass filter, it's going to kind of tough for Canon to trot out a 70D with the same old 18 MP sensor one more time.   Even if it does have GPS and wi-fi.   Just sayin'....

Yes the 3D will have that plus 61pt AF, advanced AI Servo tracking, 120MP and 0.1fps and low ISO DR within a stop of as good as the 5D2

7D2 will have the latest Rebel AF, 24MP and 10fps and high low ISO DR equal to exmor

 ;D

Okay, so now we're just making stuff up and printing it?

Fine, me too:
The EOS Me is named as such because it's actually runs on windows Me.  Microsoft is going to run Nikon off the road like they did with the iPod . . . and the iPad/Android Tablets . . . and phones.

And puppies, free puppies for every camera buyer.

Hey this is easy, let's all get together and publish this stuff!
Canon Rumors is presently creating photographer shortages in Middle Earth (all the trolls emigrated here)

If the 7D2 specs are true, you may never regret that decision.

nah using 5Dmk3s and lenses like the 16-35 f2.8L II and 70-200 f2.8L IS II already make me not regret that decision

The specs of the D7100 definitely don't make me regret going Canon in the first place. With bird photography, the lack of an AA filter would be a disaster. I am also firmly of the belief that the softness with high density Canon sensors like the 18mp is not the fault of Canon's AA filters. When I slap on any one of the Mark II telephotos, all the softness I've experienced with older L-series lenses disappears. The IQ with the newer lenses is unbelievably sharp and clear, which makes me believe the notions of "overly aggressive" AA filters in Canon gear are overblown, and based on a misunderstanding of where that softness comes from.

I have no complaints whatsoever about the IQ when using the newest generation of Canon lenses (although honestly, I don't quite include my EF 16-35 f/2.8 L II in that group...its MTF is good, but not as good as the lenses released over the last couple of years, and I do experience some softness with that lens on my 7D.) I actually hope Canon keeps the AA filters a part of their lineup, and if they ever decide to create a camera without one, that they always make it an OPTIONAL body subtype.

Of course, Nikon currently isn't going through and releasing significantly improved versions of their entire lens lineup....and if they stay that course, if their future generations of cameras start outresolving the lenses enough, they won't ever actually need an AA filter...the lens will tackle the softening of high frequency detail instead.
