*UPDATE* Canon Announcement in Singapore - October 18, 2011
« on: October 12, 2011, 09:53:10 AM »
I received word that Canon Singapore will be holding a press event on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 for an “important global announcement”. There was no mention of what the announcement would be for, which is normal.

As you can see in the image above (and below), there is a picture of an EOS-1 on the front page of the print edition of Today newspaper in Singapore. Interesting to see, considering there is no model showing, as well as the very limited quantities of the 1D Mark IV for sale and none of the 1Ds Mark III.

Could be nothing…..

*UPDATE* CRs Take I will note there is an event in The Netherlands on October 18, 2011 as well. PDN in New York City is the following week, October 27-29, 2011. There’s a general feeling something is coming, and probably beyond a printer.

However, I have yet to receive any solid and articulate information about a new EOS product. There’s a lot of fragmented information floating around.

The EOS-1 in the image is a 1Ds as people have pointed out, however it seems like a very odd time to do 4 full page ads in a newspaper. However, as I mentioned earlier, it could mean nothing.

With the big announcement on November 3, 2011, is it too much to ask for another major camera announcement within a few weeks of the Hollywood date?

I have not [CR3]‘d anything in regards to next week.

thanks Quek

Just downloaded the PDF and it's clearly a Ds, it's pixellated but it's a Ds

What I would say is that's it's odd to use the 1Ds when the 1D4 is newer and sells more numbers...unless it's the new 1Ds pictured...if it is it's not medium format as speculated.

Front page of a newspaper?  Is it an ad or an article?  Dont newspapers usually have stories on their front page - if so was there an article on the inside?  Seems weird to have a full page ad on the front of a newspaper with no accompanying article.

Looking at the PDF, it's clear (or not!) that there's a pixelated Ds in the picture. Given that the 1Ds MkIII is 4 years old now, I don't think it's unreasonable that this is the hype for the 1Ds MkIV - the MkIII is now the longest running digital camera that Canon has produced (if my maths is right!)

I wonder whether they may do simultaneous announcements at the various different events, thereby bringing along a 5D MkIII as well.  No biggie if not, at least this should signal the beginnings of the next round.

Only a week to wait and see either which way.  Happy days  :)

It's a 1Ds. You can see the extra "bump" at the top of the viewfinder that the hot shoe sits on. That extra bit is not on the 1D series.

I didn't notice the second page before.  Interesting that on all of the models shown at the bottom (1D, 1Ds, 5D, 7D), the area where the "Mk" badge is is obscured.  I know the 7D doesn't have one, but a MkII would ;)

Very interesting.  Hopefully it is a sign of good things to come. :)

I am just getting back into DSLR photography so my apologies for the newbie question.

If it is a new 1D or 1Ds or some sort of combination of the two, what do you think the price point would be at?

What makes the 1D & 1Ds line better than the 5D line? Is the double in price over the 5D justified?

Thanks so much! -- Steven

Without knowing about the extra bump on a 1Ds: There is only one model in the line up placed in the foreground. And I this adds to the extra bump. Could a 5Diii be announced in Rosendaal as the 26 Oct event in London aims at wedding pro's?

on the second page quoted, the 1D on there appears to have a hotshoe bump.  Or is it just my eyes playing with me?

And the next page (also canon related)

It's a 1Ds, no doubt.

Considering Nikon already has dates in Australia, Marrakesh and the D800 is supposed to come when those two shows will be rolling, Canon will put out something either earlier or later. October 18th rumored before, this shot, close to Nikon date...All seems plausible, but they also have something on October 26th right?

But 8 days and no real info leaks? Is it either that they protect it that well or all of this isn't for DSLR cameras.

Edit: It's basically this image, too bad, I was hoping it's already the IV heh.
