The overall feeling is of a list that was incompletely edited from a completely different camera's store spec sheet - as in a different manufacturer.
I tried plugging in a section of the list to Google and found somebody's old, but very similar, formatted list for the Canon A20...not all the categories are there, however. It's certainly possible that somebody took an existing list and added "features" as wanted, though. Plausible that it's from some store.
The way the list is formatted it is like a leaked general spec list used from a online seller, or maybe someone who copied an online seller format and modified
This certainly doesn't look like Canon't own list. "Image Stabilization: No" would only fit for compacts or cameras with sensor stabilization (i.e. Olympus, Sony cameras). Similar problem with the "digital zoom" category.
Perhaps it's intentional reverse psychology (who knows what extent somebody will go to in order to fool people), but it appears that an "original list" was butchered (carelessly?) in losing parts. For example:
"Articulated LCD Fixed"
Missing punctuation (or just sloppy).
- Same viewfinder unit as the 1Ds III, 1D Mark IV (hopefully with the same large view as the 1Ds due to the sensor size, however).
- 640x480 doesn't seem as useful as a voice note function but could be used for much the same purpose. Depends on how simple or difficult (menu-reliant) it would be to set it up.
- "Clip mode yes" - on a similar note, while retaining the old 640x480 mode isn't unthinkable, what stands out here is that this feature is for the lower-end cameras so far. It would be a reversal of the "take pictures while shooting movies" modes of previous cameras, though a dedicated movie mode button makes it thinkable (ergonomically, I'm sure it would mess with the claimed continuous mode speed). I suppose it's possible for Canon to simply include the clip movie factory aspect of previous lower end cameras, though its actual value seems slight. I don't think this is an area where there has to be a tradeoff with some other feature, however - this should be mainly a firmware feature.
- The SD/SDHC spec could just be another typo, or just an old habit. However I would expect online retailers are going to list SDXC when it's available; should already be listed with some cameras...
Overall, it does make sense that the first of the Canon cameras to be announced would be a 1D Mark V, instead of a 5D Mark III, due to attrition of potential high end sales by the lower-end. It's not at all a certain bet though.
Also, with the sort of incredible throughput claimed (I haven't tried any math to see if 1080p120 and 32mpix are in the same ballpark in terms of throughput, partly due to uncertainty about the bitrate of the codec used), this might explain why some people have claimed dual DIGIC V processors are going to be used in some cameras. That initially seemed wasteful to me, but perhaps less so than producing higher-frequency or dedicated multicore style units for higher end cameras (which would be wasteful on cheaper, crippled cameras with cores or frequency locked out or lowered, though lower camera designs might still allow use of DIGIC IV). Here, however, there is no explicit mention of how many processors there are, let alone the DIGIC V's internal design, though it seems most likely that just one is meant (as the 7D spec sheets don't simply say "DIGIC IV," but rather "dual DIGIC IV").
I am thinking that the chip could be a new Sony design...we'll know later. If it's Canon's own design, they are in a good position. If not...
