I´ve got this one day ago in Istanbul. I am very sorry for the quality.

Have fun.

So you're saying Canon is diversifying, and launching a gaffer tape division??   ;)

Frage, why are these pictures significant? (That's a serious question.)

Just one piece of food for thoughts in the whole "canon is so passive with mirrorless".

While I agree on the analysis of the current market, you can't say that canon already lost the segment like I see some say here already.
From a business point of view, there is no or little point being the first or dominating the early adopter market. With a strong brand name, you just need to drop the killer product with good timing: at general adoption. If smartphone and tablets markets taught us one thing, this should be it.

To me it looks like a 5DIII body with a 50/1.2L, after a tape orgy. Maybe a 3D prototype ... Let's hope.

But seriously, why would someone cover their camera in tape like that? I can only think of one explanation, and that it that they have something to hide.

He even covered the Canon logo on the lens cap.

Could this be the unicorn we've been waiting for?

It appears to be merely a tourist fearing that someone may steal his camera during vacation. Probably it was an American, because in earlier discussions regarding the excessive use of gaffer tape on camera equipment only U.S. citizens appeared to have serious concerns regarding theft. As a European I have never covered up my equipment.

You are probably right.

But he even covered the jog dial, the side of the camera, and the area around the hot shoe.. Doesn't make any sense! Unless he's trying to add some extra weather protection. lol  :P

this camera even has the hot shoe covered.... wtf?

no sane person would cover a camera like that, only for "theft angst".

this is either a prank... make people think it is a prototype.. or it is indeed a prototype.

I'm pretty disappointed in Canon. Nothing has really been released that has me reaching for my wallet. No Fuji fighter mirrorless and no D800E killer (the only thing that might keep me in the brand).

Meanwhile "the other guys" look like they're dropping a Vintage looking body with a D4 sensor in it.

This is the first time where I'm start to feel like I'm on the wrong boat.

Tell me, why do you feel the need for a "vintage body" all of a sudden? What is this fascination? Frankly, I' glad Canon aren't just jumping on the retro bandwagon to make a few bucks (with my luck they'll announce a retro body tomorrow and I'll be eating my words!!).

Here's an idea - don't complain that you can't spend your money fast enough. Give it to me if it bothers you!

I'm a European who tapes up their camera (though perhaps not quite so extremely).

It is not about theft - that will happen anyway. However, it does make a difference to perception. A lot of wealthy tourists show up around here waving giant cameras and L-series zooms as status symbols. I saw one Russian family of four where every person was prominently wearing large Canon cameras and L-series lenses (though I didn't seem them take a single photo!).

Act like that and you are going to be pestered like mad by every street-trader, down-and-out, and drunk that decides they want something from you...
