No 4K, no buy. C'mon, it's 2017!

LOL @ the two people who have ever bought this product.

No 4K? Canon is doomed.
But OTOH there's a 5D mkIV in it, so 4K included... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
How about maximum flash sync speed?   ;D ;D ;D

Who cares? Not fast enough. Ever. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Also, on the 'fun products you didn't need' tip, MindShift offers this gem:

Yes.  It's a tiny packable tarp to keep your landscape/wildlife gear clean and dry. 

Neat idea until you consider how inexpensive a personal tent footprint is at REI, or a tarp at Home Depot / Lowe's + intelligent application of scissors.   ::)

Yes, but imagine if someone out in the wilderness sees you putting your expensive camera and L lenses on a generic box store tarp?

This is pointless to use with a Canon camera.  Without a Sony sensor, how can I pull the shadows up in post enough after shooting through this thing?

I'll buy one to catch all the EOS 20D shadow detail oozing out of the camera.  Brilliant!

I actually knew something like this existed and was looking into it for my 70D. I hate how bug and bulky camera backpacks often are and wanted to use my regular backpack but witout an insert. this is a great way to protect your cam.

I'm going to order 20 of these, test them thoroughly and return the 19 that aren't up to spec.

When I travel for work with just my 5D3 + (35 f/2 IS or 28 f/2.8 IS) onboard as a walkabout option if there's any free time, I just wrap it in a fleecy winter hat.  Works just fine.

I use the LensCoat neoprene covers, they work very well.  I have one for just the 1D X body (although it's a great fit for the body + 40/2.8 pancake), and one for body+lens (works with the 24-70/2.8 and similar).

LOL.  I hope the sharp center doesn't scratch your camera!   ;)

Jokes aside, in Japan using traditional Japanese wrapping cloth (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furoshiki (Furoshiki) is quite common and is used as a symbol of respect when delivering valuable gifts to your guests. Even though awkward, the PC-E2 product concept is based on this idea, I guess.
