Could mean a lot of things but "A moment captured in time" gives me the sense they are referring to photographs. 

an print is just a likely...

Not trying to read too much into it, but why would any company have an event for a printer, unless it can print counterfeit money. I don't know of a single person who keeps track of printers.

So hopefully, it will some good news for once.

(High Five) i dont even own a colour printer, and never need to. Its cheaper to get an online site (ie photobox, snapfish etc etc, other sites are available) to print things for you. (unless you print for a living)

"A moment captured in time. Exactly as you envisioned."

That sounds like a great promo line for a printer, especially if its optimized with new bells and whistles that tie-in with the EOS line (hence the dual logos). If it were a camera, no need for a Pixma logo.

I'd think that the third coming of the great 5D would be heralded with a much more dramatic tagline.  Sounds a little too sedate to be anything monumental.   Canon knows how important the 5D3 is... why tease us with anything less than "The moment you've all been waiting for" or "It lives..." etc. etc. and why give it second billing to a pixma-anything?  Why even share the event with pixma?

WPPI is held in conjunction with PDN, so a Wedding camera or lens announceent is a possibility, but I've seen no rumors.

At Wensday 25 March 2009, Canon announced 2 printers (pixma PRO 9000MKII/9500MKII), together with a DSLR and a flash (500D & 270EX)

Maybe also this time will see a similar combination of printer+DSLR+Flash

I'm getting a new camera before end of year. So I'm hoping for an update to the 7D or 5D; I'm not going to pay $2400 for a camera that will be replaced within 6 months.  I want FF but I could easily buy a T3i now and buy a 5d2 once the 5d3s are announced; instead of get a 5D2 now.

Exactly as you envisioned?  C'mon, guys, it's a given it's the release of Ron Howard's film.  If a 5d Mark III is nearing release, this will be the time to announce it, no doubt.  I can't imagine Canon would miss the marketing opportunity.  I would expect either a full frame 1D or a 5D Mark III plus printers.  A T4i?  I assume that's a joke.  Canon isn't going to send out invitations like that to pros to announce a Rebel.  Not knocking Rebels, they just ain't going to be announced that way. 
Gear! When do we get gear?!

i can't take the craziness!!!

one day we are told nothing cool will come out this year.  then all this? :o ??? :'(

on one hand, why would canon send out invites to unveil another photo printer?  on the other hand, if they wanted to release something big, they wouldn't attach it to a printer invite.  right?  THEN, there is all this Ron Howard business.  i don't know what to think, but i can always hope.

...However as posted yesterday, I had been told by everyone and their mother that no new DSLR was coming in 2011.....

Well, one is coming for sure then!!  :) ;)

(Just joking. Thanks for this site!)

It's a printer, the EOS logo is to tie it in with the direct print function to sell cameras. Nothing more.

Exactly.  people are getting worked up for nothing.  It's amazing that Canon still thinks the "direct print" feature is something that anybody cares about and uses though.

I'd be interested to know if anyone here actually uses the direct print button. I can't think of a good use for it. But I always shoot RAW and always post process...
