screen does not look 4x3...looks like a 16x9 or 16x10. [...]

Any chance that we're looking at a video specific model? Otherwise I'm not sure who would benefit from a 16:9 type screen. I hope that's not becoming part of the brave new world with all the 3D-LCD TV hype. Still can't really stand the format for PCs, especially laptops.

Noticed the record-breaking board activity? I copied this just a minute ago from the board's front page:

Most Online Today: 835. Most Online Ever: 835 (2012-01-23, 21:16:53)


Time for Slash-dot ?

On the extinct birds - Does Steven Spielberg have one of these cameras?


Overall - If Canon is intending to leak, I think we might see more of these shots in the next few weeks.  It would help abate any D800 news.   If so, then the 25th Anniversary EOS / 75th Canon Anniversary makes some sense - they could draw the photo media to a big announcement.  And have cameras in peoples hands by Photokina.

If this is a wider screen format - it would be awesome for landscape photographers.  Give me the 21 + the new space on the side please.  And if I want to crop down, heh, I am still at 21.

BTW, did anyone notice that Canon's new Pro Printer is now in stock at BH today?

Ok, on with the thread.... :)

Anyone else noticing the dual cards on the 5D III / 7D II?  Exciting!

Did anyone else notice the bird on LCD is the thought-to-be-extinct Ivory Billed Woodpecker?   This gets more interesting every second.

So the next big Canon announcement would be with regards to the revival of an extinct bird through their genetics research department, eh?

I been following this forum for years now, and never actually posted anything, but this is getting just too funny not to.

Hahaha I love you guys!

Looks like it's a new dual card icon that looks somewhat different to the dual CF-CF icon on the vertical grip LCD on 1D X and the dual CF-SD icon on 1D IV.  This new icon on the top LCD looks quite like...........  the new XQD!?   ::) ::) ::)

Note the new dual-card icon looks matching the slimmer rectangular shape of XQD...




Also note that the top LCDs on both 1D X and 1D IV do not have the dual card icon though.

Personally, I'm curious about the RATE button.

1) On-the-fly image rating during in-camera review?  I'd think that was silly and something photographers would never use, and so Canon would never waste space with a button like that.  But then I remembered the Direct Print button....

2) Video frame rate.  Despite the mockup of the 1-series-looking Cinema dSLR pictured with the C 300, the 5DII's form factor is likely an advantage for a video production.  Could there be a red C on the front of this unknown body?  (Or simply evidence of a video-oriented 5DIII?)

Given the label on the "Rate" button is in blue text, I'm guessing it's #1.

Yeah, but that's only because they have the back LCD to devote to that.  Either way, I think it's safe to assume that whatever that camera is, it will have dual storage of some kind!  :D

Bang on!

Say it with me - XQD...   8)

Disclaimer: not that I am into XQD (and to the contrary, I am heavily invested in CF  :'( indeed), but just saying...

Although it could also be Dual SDXC Cards.

Not a popular choice for many but the format is cheap enough.
Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

I have to say - this is looking less like a 5DII replacement and more like a 3D/4D/6D/etc. - something in the $4K price range, not a $2.5-3K 5DIII.

Maybe anyone shooting video on that camera.  The 5D2 was wildly popular for video, the 1DX and the development 4K DSLR will be higher priced than the 5D3 (most likely), so there's a good chance the 5D3 will remain very popular for video, hence a widescreen LCD would be useful?

Or they price the 5D3 at $4k and keep the 5D2 in production a while longer?  I don't generally prescribe to such theories but it's not impossible if the 5D3 is to initially be priced high.

Since there is so much speculation as to the potential possibilities for this camera, a question ran through my mind.  Does anyone know how many prototypes Canon has developed over the years for different cameras that never ended up seeing the light of day in terms of full production after field testing?

just wondering, are these pictures showing one camera or different cameras? At the source page with all the pictures of the camera, there is pictures of the battery grip with the joystick and one with an lcd screen on the grip, one with a mode dial on the left and one with no mode dial on the left thats replaced with 3 buttons? just wondering if anyone else saw that

Two different bodies.  One is a 1DX.   The other is clearly a new body.
