Can someone explain why Canon would provide any information to a waterproof housing manufacturer in advance of the release of a new camera, other than detailed engineering drawings and specifications for the external dimensions and button placements on that camera?
Canon recently held a briefing on the new body with marketing spiel to affiliated companies. They maybe just gave one briefing to everyone regardless of individual need. That said, that meeting was under full NDA. The specs seem bizarre (why make 22MP when you already have a new 18MP one which is close?) and 7.5fps might be just enough to be too much for the 1DX. I mean the specs sound awesome, but curious for Canon.
Only thing I can think of is the 36MP (?) D800 got Canon scared and they went all out, 1DX whatever, on this and that they wanted Aquatech to leak this info too.
Probably easier to believe Aquatech was pulling a stunt though, but IMO that just makes them look bad, but I guess they figure greater upside from traffic vs any losses from disgust over the tactic.
