Is This the EOS 3D?
« on: June 17, 2013, 01:13:50 PM »
An image worth investigating
Below are some screencaps that I received today from a Chinese forum called “Weibo”. In it, you will see a blurred out Canon camera, which isn’t all that significant.

However, on the strap we see what appears to be “EOS 3D”, I do not see a fold in the strap that would possibly be hiding a “0″ for the 30D, nor is it a 7.

What do you think?

This photo was taken from Al Alhambra palace in Granada - Andalucia, Spain!
You can see the Albaicin quartier in the background :)

Looks like a 3 to me...but if they were trying to keep it secret then why would they make a strap for it instead of just a standard canon one?

Exactly. I once had a strap with Mickey Mouse on it, didn't mean my camera was made by Disney.

Seems a little too obvious I would think

Agree that it is not likely to be 3D strap from canon.  Does anyone recognize the person in the picture?

I think the strap is for this camera. hehe

BTW, if you want a camera strap for 2D, 3D, 4D, 8D, 9D or whatever, you may custom order one easily nowadays.

It could be a 2D also, but my guess it is more likely a 7.

Hanging around Europ with unprecedented "3D" logo on a Canon-type neck strap, I believe that is against Canon's test policy -- break it, if that guy doesn't care his privilege.   Which made me think rather it is faked, unless Canon wants to leak such info intentionally.

From the guy's twitter-like content, we can tell that he explicitly wrote he is "travelling and testing something simultaneously".

I recall a similar thread a few years back. Went nowhere.

If a camera is in development or testing, they aren't going to slap a strap on it that broadcasts the model number.

It's a slow day at Rumor Central. Can't blame CR Guy for throwing a little chum into the waters to see if he can stir up some page views. But, no reason to swallow this one. Move along. Nothing to see here.

On the other hand – anybody recognize the other camera in his hand.

I think he's simply about to commit suicide, but undecided whether to jump down the abyss or strangle himself with all those straps...  :o

And my binoculars have a strap on them that says "Canon 60D"...... and my 70-200 lens has a cap on it that says "Olympus".... labels can be deceiving.

The best camera is the one in your hands

Sadly, the strap appears to be based on the same technology as the last several generations of straps.

Agreed.  The blacks are no blacker, the whites are no whiter, therefore no improvement in strap dynamic range.  Plus, still the same issue with oversaturation of the red channel.
