From NL: Big Product launch invitations
« on: June 26, 2013, 05:20:46 AM »
From NL, what might this include? Hope it hasn't been posted here yet.
"We're told (thanks) that Canon have been summoning inviting some people from dealers for a 'big' product launch within the 6-8 week timeframe. If so, expect to see some more serious leaks within the next couple of weeks. No details of just what was meant by 'big', since in PR speak that could be anything!"

What I said in Photorumors about the same thing:

Citing byThom.com: "I expect to
see no more than two DSLRs launched in the remainder of 2013: the D400
and the D4x. The D4x seems to be almost a lock, with really only the
timing and the sensor choice being unknown at this point."

If Nikon happens to make another big MP camera it would definitely put a big pressure on Canon.

So I think this rumour is quite substantiated.

Get your check book out - time to get a third mortgage on the house  ::)

The summer could be interesting.  Any guesses?

High MP camera (1Dxs, 3D, ?)
7D M2?
70 D (though that does not merit so much attention)
Something else?

From NL ...

Heh, 6-8 weeks from now is the second half of August.
This is Canon's traditional announcement time.

This year the candidates are the 60D and/or 7D successor(s) plus the high-MP FF model.
We'll see what Canon will announce at the end.

From NL, ...

My first thought: Why in Netherlands? Is there some big Canon design center?

Don't want to get my hopes up, because it could be something like 7D2 and 70D, or similar.

But could be 1DsX with 60MP sensor. For $20k. With 10-200mm F2L IS Mark III. That makes coffee.

For many years the European HQ for Canon was in the Netherlands, most, if not all, those duties were moved to London in 2009 and on.
The best time to plant a tree is twenty-five years ago. The second best time is today.

EU tax reasons.

Same as almost every company in the USA is registered in Delaware.

I wonder how many people have been hoping for big Canon announcements in Costa Rica ...
