From Canon USA

A press event has been scheduled for Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at Canon’s new headquarters in New York.


Will there be a product announcement? We think so. The New EOS M cameras are on their way, but it appears Canon USA doesn’t like the system all that much, since they won’t be releasing the EF-M 11-22 lens. The others that will be talked about are the EOS 7D Mark II and an EOS-1 camera. The EOS 7D Mark II, won’t get announced until well after the EOS 70D is shipping we’ve been told. Though, stuff like that can change.


There is an EOS-1 possibility, though I’m not of the belief their will be.

Could the "cloud" on the invitation hint on something? Maybe it's only something like Project 1709…

Given the other teasers, the cloud graphic may be quite relevant...

Maybe the next 1Ds camera will be cloud based, requiring a 100$ fee to use monthly. Which if you add up over the four year product cycle is more affordable than the old 1Ds iii full retail price. As long as you pay, you'll get to use the camera but if you don't, we hold all your work back and keep the photos locked away. :)

Or the cloud could be a rain cloud and whatever the new release is, it is properly weatherproofed....

Well, did anyone try the "immediate questions" thing yet ?   8)

Just mailed pr@cusa.canon.com

Their office is at Melville

And that's what I wrote:

Hello,
Refering myself to your willingness in case of immediate questions:
What does the clouds stand for in your upcoming Media Event of August 21, 2013?
Don't feel oblieged to tell me all, a hint is enough.
Thank you so much.

What if all of us did the same? By getting so much mail at once, they'd maybe leak another tidbit of info ;-)

I just hope some certain gov. do not scan CR guys site...;-)

So, post if you did it!

Thanks, Mr. Bob. Glad to see I'm not the only one who knows the difference between the city and Lon Gisland.

Canon's new headquarters is not in New York City. It is in Melville Long Island.
