November 3, 2011 Announcement
« on: November 02, 2011, 08:40:10 AM »
Almost there! The “historical” announcement is a day away. We have heard nothing else in regards to what’s coming.

Canon didn’t send me an invite after I asked for one, I think they had a good laugh at my request judging by the smiley faces in the email.

Expectations? I expect a Super35 4K capable camera with PL and EF mount options. 2 to 3 lenses are also expected.

do you think those new lens will be specific to video or would they be EF mount usable on our EOS body and also have AF?  Any guess at what focal lenght they would be?
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

Is that... an EOS camera? It couldn't be the Mark III, surely...? New fast 50mm lens? They didn't show the aperture marking.

thats no 5d mk2 looks like a new camera to me look at the bottom the shape of it its the mk3 its coming i told you all hahaha

lol, that's a 5D Mark II in the video, your just seeing what you want to see.

If you people actually click on the link (that was attached to the video) its just a video about these women photographers and how they came up with this idea (hence the teaser)... it has nothing to do with a new camera.

It doesn't have a built-in flash (:05) so definitely not a 7D II unless they've dropped it to make the new flagship flash that much more attractive, also you can see the characters at bottom right where the current model says "Mark II" and it is clearly at least that many characters though not readable (:18)... I don't have my 5DII in front of me at the moment to compare every detail but it is either a 5D Mark II with a new 50 L of some sort or indeed a 5D Mark III...then again...I'm often wrong :)))

If I remember correctly the Presentation starts at 6PM west coast time. 

So it will probably be later tonight before someone is able to tweet out the details.  Not sure this event will have the same number of live bloggers as the iPhone 4S announcement. :)

Hopefully Canon will send out press releases with all the details shortly after the cameras are announced.

I believe the Red announcement will be at 6PM west coast time.

Hope this helps! -- Steven

a new 50 L of some sort

It's the current 50mm f/1.2L. It looks a little 'different' because there's a clear filter on the front (you can clearly see that in the frame grab shown before you play the clip).  The filter gives a different look to the internally-retracting front-focus element.  Actually, you often see filters used on the 50L because it's one of the few lenses where the manual states that a filter is required for weather sealing.

$15K video camera, stealing market share from Red. Hence why Red are announcing also. Nothing to do (directly) with the 1Dx, MK III or anything else (although clearly there may be some internal tech which is shared).....

Just my 2p...
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)
