*UPDATE* 5D Mark III Sighting?
« on: January 23, 2012, 01:48:52 PM »
UPDATE Others are thinking that this could be a 7D Mark II. Which is possible, however the missing popup flash and larger prism would say otherwise. There’s no precedent, however if they change sensor size in a 7D replacement, they probably wouldn’t call it “Mark II”. Lots more will follow I imagine.

This photograph was snapped in Kenya this week. It appears to be a new full frame camera body.

Noted Features

  • No popup flash
  • Joystick on the battery grip
  • Screen appears wider (although it could be distortion)
  • New button layouts
  • New Scroll wheel

Camera and lens (lens foot) orientation is not correct.

Something is fishy about the pic.

It probably is the new 5DMkIII. If the announcement is imminent, as I think, there should be prototypes in the field for testing among the selected ones ;)

As far as I can tell, there's nothing wrong with the orientation - he's simply rotated the collar 90 degrees.

My questions are 1: what about this camera body is different from existing bodies, and 2: what makes this look 'shopped to those who think it is?

Does look awfully like a 7D except for a few slight differences. If it is a 5D Mark III, that power switch around the mode dial is making me way happier than it should... time to get my sanity examined.

Edit: mememe beat me to it.  :)

It does not look photoshopped at all.

"More to come" ... there are more photos? O_O

It looks like a 7D. However, the LCD looks like a 60D (ie. Wider)

It also has an extra button between the joystick and the rear control wheel.

I say the appereance of the 200-400 in the same setting and high quality images makes this believeable.

UFO pictures usually is veeeery poor quality.

"Lens foot" is part of tripod collar, not lens itself, so no "fishy".
It indeed looks like one of 5D3 prototypes. No pop-up flash is one thing, but there's more.
One novelty is separate switch photo/movie mode on right to viewfinder. I don't think there were any switches like that before in Canon DLSR :)
Putting duct tape on name under screen does not work with me ;)
Also screen also looks like one of size from 60D

This is NOT 60D but 7D or 5D.  IT does have push down button on knob to turn different mode.  Top of the on/off switch is on the TOP without flash!!  Great!!
