What lens hood is that ?

IIRC, both the 24-105mm's and the 24-70's hoods are petal shaped.

The lens hood looks like the hood from the TS-E 24mm 3.5 II:


And to me the lens appears to be something like the 24-105.

It looks like the lens hood I had on my 24-105mm.  It was not petal shaped.

That 3rd picture clearly shows an inked out "Mark [something]" insignia below the lens release, but this is definitely not a 1-series camera...just look at any pictures of a 1-series body and you can rule it out. It looks similar to a 5D Mark II, but it's different...slightly different body shape. This is probably a 5D Mark III. Considering the ridiculous disguise, it's likely a prototype or pre-release tester that they want to keep under the radar. The big over-the-shoulder body could certainly be hiding an external video recording module (though it'd probably be a fraction of the size). Or this is an old-shcool ENG guy with a 5d Mark II, and he modified his old OTS camera instead of dropping a grand on a Zacuto rig hahaha.
If Canon were nice, they'd put out an awesome 5D III and sell an external video module to enable RAW or better-than-line-skipped-1080 video for those of us who want to shoot HQ full frame video. That's if they were nice. They seem to make a lot more money by just doling out periodic upgrades and dribbling out pre-existing technology

what is it about the body that looks different from a regular old 5D Mark II?

I just took a look at mine, and there's nothing from these photos that makes me think it's anything other than a 5D2.

Well this is easy. Clearly they are testing SOME kind of canon camera. Its not a 1 series for sure. It also appears to differ from the 5D and 7D in some minor bits though this could be an effect from the way the pic was taken. Clearly the model itself is blacked out, but I also see the tag near the right base that would indicate a Mark Whatever label. They wouldn't blank out the model unless they were clearly trying to hide exactly what it was, and that back probably has a purpose besides just disguise. I bet you they installed some sort of mech to allow viewing of the LCD from the eyepiece. I'd say its a 5D III or 7D II prototype getting some field work, leaning heavily towards the former.

Still not sure it's a new camera.  Probably a 5DII in a home-build video rig.  The use of a non-standard hood is consistent with the 'home built' aspect.  I've seen all kinds of those...here's one interesting example.   :P

The weather sealing on the external ports (rubber covers) wrap around the front of the camera. The 5D2 doesn't look like this. If it is a 5D3 then that could be improved weather sealing.

Who's to say Canon didn't disguise the camera like car manufacturers do when they are on the Nurburgring.

I have 2 5D2's - one from when they were released and one bought with the discount a month a go.

Neither of them looks like this camera. And it is not a 1D series either. It is definitely an extremely over the top home build, or a prototype out in the field being tested...

As to which model it is a prototype for, I have not idea...

Also notice the EOS logo placement is almost directly above the name of the camera.

The 5D2 has a big gap.

Also, on the shot showing the back, you cannot see any arrows or raised dots on the battery flap.

Oh yeah, that isn't a current 24-105 either...
