Canon Hong Kong Announcement April 24, 2014
« on: April 22, 2014, 05:42:21 AM »
Canon Hong Kong is announcing something on April 24, 2014. I think it’s safe to say it won’t be a white EOS camera this time.

The text in this teaser says: “Beauty lies not in objects, but in the interaction between the shadow and light created by objects.”

I wouldn’t expect anything too earth shattering, as these regional announcements are generally minor.

Reminds me about a flash or something. May be some EX-440-RT.

or you could say it will not be earth shattering because canonrumors had no clue about an "annoucement" prior to the teaser... but then.... that´s always the case isn´t it?   8)

I was thinking the same thing. I don't know what's in that picture, but it doesn't look like a flash, I could look like a elinchrom quadra style head. I think canon should make a 600-1200 Ws battery flash fully compatible with the st-e3 and speedlites. Surprised they have left all that to ProFoto, Elinchrom and others.

Probably their own 50 1.4 as they are about to lose out on a ton of money if they don't announce something before the Sigma is released.

I'm guessing its some knid of light modifier like a beauty dish or mini soft box/flash modifiers. Something along those lines.

The point is, if there is information (official or unofficial) from only one location in the world, it is unlikely to be an announcement of global significance.

... or it’s a hint to the long awaited high-Megapixel monster, with exceptionally good dynamic range.  ::)
Somebody has to wake me up, it seems.

Probably not a 4x0EX-RT, that would be a pretty significant (global) announcement.  However, a while back there was a rumor of a new flash coming for the EOS M system, sitting above the 90EX in the lineup.  The light/shadow thing, coupled with an announcement in a prominent Asian market, are consistent with that.

Regardless, it seems like we don't have long to wait.

It might be for release of Mr14ex II in Asia. I asked couple of local dealers in India and the mr14ex ii is not yet available in India. Usually it takes canon 2-3 weeks longer time to release these products in Asia than Europe and north American market.  :P
