*UPDATE 1* Nikon Announcements Next Week
A reader has written in about this post and says the big megapixel camera is from Nikon.
A Nikon division (I wonâ€™t mention the country) will be showing new Nikon products on August 24, 2011. The showing is â€œconfidentialâ€ and will require an NDA. We already know the Nikon mirrorless will be coming.
Please donâ€™t yell at me for posting Nikon stuff on Canon Rumors (trust me, itâ€™ll happen).
Whatever Nikon does, could give some insight into what Canon and others in the industry will do. Photographic equipment companies rarely one up each other in the span of a month or so.
I received word that one manufacturer will surprise everyone with a big megapixel camera next Thursday, August 25, 2011.
The report is very vague, but comes from a bang on source. Iâ€™d almost [CR3] this.
5D Mark III
Two great sources are both saying Canon is extremely quiet at the moment. There hasnâ€™t been a real whisper about anything upcoming.
I am finished posting spec lists until I hear something more concrete.
A lot of people are talking about price drops of the 5D Mark II. Itâ€™s pretty interesting to me too. Weâ€™re coming up to 3 years on the Mark II. Maybe there will be something announced in 2011.
No one has received any press invites to a Canon event yet.
It looks like Nikon will announce first.
