Mystery body?
« on: February 18, 2014, 09:43:39 AM »
On the new video from The Camera Store reviewing the Fujifilm XT 1, at 3 minutes 45 seconds Nick Devlin shows the Fuji split screen; the image he shows on the screen is of a retro style Canon OES body with an OMD EM1 type SLR body and grip.  What is this camera?  Can it be a retro style SLR type mirrorless body on test from Canon?  Is this an unintended leak?  I am not familiar with all Canon bodies so might be wrong.  Any ideas?

That would be an EOS 650 with the EF 35-105 attached.

Hi You won my respect for your knowledge, together with a dollop of disappointment that it is not what I hoped it might be.  Thanks

... a dollop of disappointment....

Yeah, its not old enough to be retro.


I own a 650 becouse it was my first SLR. I dont think it works anymore but I just cant throw it out.

If canon would jump on the retro bandwagon it would be a A1 with a 5DIII sensor.

Hi again

Yeah, the A1 was my camera in the film days.  Canon should mash these bodies together and they would right on the money in the retro space.  Looking at that 650 makes me think the EM 1 is pretty close in grip ergonomics.  Thanks again.
