I hope it is 5D Mark III, but I don't think it is.

*yawn* The probability of Canon launching the 1Ds4 next week is about as likely as the US reducing the national debt.

And what is your basis for that statement?

2008, April - Canon 450D
2009, March - Canon 500D
2010, Feb - Canon 550D
2011, Feb - Canon 600D

If we assume that the Canon 650D gets DIGIC V, we can assume that we'll get a pro-release prior to this - they wouldn't want a prosumer level camera get the limelight of the new *processor*, so you could assume there will be a pro-level camera debuting the *processor* before this.

Good point about Olympics too - you'd presume Canon would have at least one firmware release under their belt and have ironed out any problems prior to it starting if new models out?

Edit - processor not sensor. Wrong word, thanks for the catch Sinsear

Digic V is a processor, not a sensor.

Sounds exciting...
Isn't DigitalRev not a pure SLR-Page? I'm just subscribed to their Youtube channel and they actually bring nothing else than photo camery camera stuff. So it is not THAT far out that we get a new SLR here.

- They already anounced new powershots
- They'll probably announce new video stuff at the Hollywood event
- of they'd just release another Printer they wouldn't invite DigitalRev

So what else could it be than a new 1D/5D/7D (probably the first mentioned).

If they are going to announce new printers, why they have invited Kai. So they are going to announce new 1Ds camera. For Hollywood event, they will introduce new video camcorders. 8)

Hmm...  Why do we hear only from DigitalRev about the "pro" product launch?  If there ain't other invitations being leaked over the weekend or early next week from other major retailers around the world, do you guys still think DigitalRev is the only one who is invited to see 1Ds4 / 5D3 / etc... ?

For the record, Kai from DigitalRev got disappointed before for a PRINTER invitation!!!

There is a possibility....ok probably very slim but still...

That at the Hollywood "video" event they could announce the 5D3 with its more video focused features, sorry photo guys but they seem to be using the 5D2 in more Movie and TV productions so it would make sense now that they have a "branded product" to focus the line towards these people.

Then the event on the 22nd is the 1D lines merger/release. A pure photographers camera.

It would make sense.
Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

@AG: Maybe. But I don't think that canon anounces two Camera Products on two different events in such a short time. Normaly they have different events for different types of products. And yeah, the 5D3 may be a good Video Cam. But not THAT good that it is "historical" and worth to be presented in Hollywood.
People in Hollywood use other - and much more expensive - stuff. So I'm quite sure that the Hollywood event will be pure video announcement. And the upcoming event next week (IF there is an event) something different, hopefully a 5D or a 1D.

Historical would suggest something to do with their Technicolor tie in, so I wouldn't be too suprised to see either some kind of light projection or screen system. The graphics on that invite also suggest that.

Ok, wow..so now there is a 7 day sale on few bodies in DigitalRev website. The 5D MKII is going for $2250+ down from its original price of $2500. 7D is going for $1400 from its usual $1600. Dont know, but I really hope they introduce a flagship APS-C body replacing the 7D. Wait, its only a Pro launch is it? T_T Noooo!

1D and 1Ds are the only real PRO DSLR cameras from Canon. If there will be a PRO DSLR involved, then it must be it. However, I still hope for 5D3 announcement this year, because that is the camera I'm aiming for and it's about time.
On the other hand, it could be anything - cameras, flashes, lenses, printers, even software.

Hollywood event = pure video stuff, no DSLR. Perhaps videocam with EF mount?

22nd sept. = will be DSLR.

Why?
They have had the DSLRs ready for a while and the rumors have been out there. They have just been waiting for Nikon to make their move...

Hence, the short notice. Hence releasing power shots and Digic V earlier than DSLRs...

However, it is not said when the cameras will be released. THAT might not happen until 2012.
