Perhaps they'll announce a mirrorless camera one day after Nikon :)

It sounds great, but I think we should wait for a little bit more info. Thanks for posting!

*UPDATE* Canon "Pro" Announcements on September 22, 2011
« Reply #3 on: September 16, 2011, 12:59:41 PM »

Invites are out

DigitalREV has stated on their Twitter & Facebook that they have been invited to a  ”pro product launch”.


What could it be?


Everything from printers to DSLRs, for the moment it’s unknown. I’m asking other folks that wouldn’t be invited to a printer event, if they’ve been invited to something next Thursday.


*UPDATE 1*

Another person with an invite is telling us that the program only mentions, ink, laser, & multifunction printers.


I’d expect to see new Pixma 9000 and 9500 printers. Perhaps a larger Pixma added to the lineup as well.


thanks Rob

Hopefully, the wait will be over.

not that it really matters as long as we get a pro level DSLR but it would seem an odd move to introduce Digic 5 with Powershots and then a week later introduce a pro DSLR. switch things round a week and the 1Ds mkIV or the 5D mkIII is heralding in Digic 5 instead of Powershots.

I think we all over-think all of these things.  Including me.

Waiting 6 days seems like way too long.  What do you think?

For a pro DSLR event, Canon usually gives more lead time, there is lots of Pro equipment that could be announnced, but a printer seems likely.

I hope its a Pro DSLR though.

Nikonrumors say there's an announcement by Nikon in a number of Countries on the 21st, so it does sound as though a Pro announcement is in the making.... I can't see Canon launching printers to take the attention away from Nikon but hey, who knows  ;D
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

You know, that's really short notice for an announcement but also kinda screws Nikon a bit.

If they say, announce the 1DS4 in 6 days the mirrorless attention for Nikon will disappear and even if Nikon announce something after the 1DS4 then The November announcement will screw them too.

With the Olympics literally months away it's a very brave game of brinksmanship.

Didn't we just do that thing a few years  back?  :o

Let's just hope it's something good.
