Does it come with a bracket accessory so that you can put a left and right together for binocular vision?  Then you can film movies in 3D!

First reaction: Why the "L"?
Second reaction: Why is it reversed??
Third reaction: "You got me."

In addition to the 7D L, Canon is also releasing a Canon T5i! 

...Oh wait, that wan't an april fools. Canon just thought it could put new creative filters in the T4i and call it an upgrade.

Canon should have saved the T5i announcement for today.

This almost makes me want to have one 3d-printed just to see how it feels.  I'm sure Canon could ship something like this easily enough if they thought it was worth it.  Anyway I laughed  :-)

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

As a disabled person who can now only use his left hand
who was amazed at this wonderful left-handed incarnation of his current camera
who has told his friends and family what a marvellous thing this was

I can say that I am not remotely amused by this April Fool

It would have been REALLY useful to me

Almost believable, until I read "SHIPPING IN MAY"

I knew there would be one person who had the disability that would say this... I am sorry to hear. There is a way you can try (if you havnt tried already) use one of the cameras that has a flip screen, and use a batter grip. You can use the camera upside down. Better than nothing

I'm only getting one if the lens zooms backwards too...

+1 :D

This was a good one. I think that would indeed, if it existed, would be the most awkward DSLR I'd ever used.

Good joke. Funny how asymmetrical this flipped camera looks, while the dimensions are the same (although reverse) of a 'normal' 7D.
