What to expect on August 21, 2013

First, we’re told by a great source that only PowerShot announcements will take place on the 21st. We’re also told not to expect anything “high end”, nothing like the Sony RX100 II. I would imagine at least a few new PowerShots will have features that go along with sharing photos.
Which brings us to…. as some have pointed out, the invitation shows a cloud and not an EOS, PowerShot or EF logo like most invites. There’s a good chance that this is for the Project 1709 photo management service. You can visit it at www.project1709.com.
I have feelers out to see if anything bigger in the way of an EOS camera is to be announced or showcased. There is always a possibility of a “development” announcement, as that can afford Canon time to actually get a product to market.
More to come…

Imho quite the opposite, considering the marketing disaster for (pre-)announcing some products (1dx, 24-70mk2 as far as I remember) and actually delivering them it seems to me Canon is very shy when talking about their next products, plus of course Nikon/Sony are always keen to listen. So I don't see how a development announcement over what they have leaked so far would do anything good for Canon.

Oh lord, not another 'keep your images on the web cloud' scheme :(  We have enough of those that don't work exactly right.

This is very sad.

The 200-400/4+1.4x.  Over 2 years from development announcement to launch.  Oops.
