"One film is about making a cinematic piece with the camera"

Not a good sign.

All commercials on DSLRs should be about photography. NOT about making films.

They are targeting the wrong customers. Save the video stuff for the HV-camcorder line.

Can you imagine a commercial (usually a 20-30 sec spot) about shooting landscape or portrait photography? While the camera itself may be great for still photography, a TV spot is probably not the best medium to advertise that. It is much better suited for action photography and video features.

Yes, but it would have to star Ashton Kutcher.  Christian Bale maybe.

So one is for 5dx and the other for 5d3? Cinema oriented commercial I understand for C product. But Euro2012? Another sport camera? Big fps, small MP etc.? Like small brother of 1dx? :)

If the 22mp rumour is correct then its certainly a camera with good potential for sports shooting, espeically if the 7D is phased out. Ultimately the 5D line is far more likely to benefit from advertsing and euro 2012 is the 2nd biggest sport event this year.

This comment could have come directly from a top  Kodak manager.  "The photography world won't change to digital, lets keep making film cameras"

I'd like to see Canon stay in business.

I've been a pro photojournalist for 6 years and now my title is multimedia journalist. I produce just as much video content as I do stills. DSLRs should be marketed to the video crowd simply because that's where the industry is going. Sorry, if you shoot weddings, but the future is in video and having a cam body that does both seamlessly is what I need.

+1 video in DSLR is here to stay and becoming an ever more important part.

(and even wedding photographers are sometimes adding in short movies too)

And don't think that video didn't help 5D2 sales a ton.

Canon: "Wait! But there is more, every 5D3 will be a special Kate Beckinsale edition!! And now.... Kate Beckinsaaaale to introduce her new ad campaign for the Canon 5D3!!!!!!! The Canon 5D3 uncovered!!!!!"

How long after the D800 commercial in Chicago was shot did we see the camera unveiled?

The D800 commercials were shot in September. That may not mean anything though since if we are to believe "Nikon Rumors" the D800s original announcement date was late October or early November, IIRC.

</strong>Received some detailed information that 5D Mark III/X commercials are being shot in England and France. One film is about making a cinematic piece with the camera, the other is for Euro 2012.</p>

Start match of Euro 2012: 8th June
Final: 1st July

So now the question is - is that a teaser or trailer for it before release? Will the camera's be out in photographer's hands?

If it's just a teaser - then general release isn't for another 4-5 months.

I wouldn't mind improving video capabilities in a dslr. I primarily shoot weddings and portraits and the 5dmkII has served me well.  But I also am producing a spearfishing video as a side project where I film intensively with the 5dmkII.  I don't really foresee myself getting involved with incorporating video with my photo packages for weddings though. Videography is usually hired separate from photography with the exception of those one stop shops out there.  I think it's way too painful for a photographer to have to worry about shooting video at a wedding where there are already dedicated videographers.  If a photographer chooses to go down the road of producing video, they should have a dedicated staff to handle all the video and evolve into a one stop shop for wedding photo/video for example. I vote for a 5dmk2 successor that can do both photo and video... preferably following in the footsteps of the 1DX but with slightly higher resolution (22mp).  ;)

That seems to be where it's going.

My old manual focus brain resents video in a stills camera, but life goes on and the world changes. I used to be able to get away with saying, "I've never seen a video in a frame hanging on the wall." Now, I think the future is video in frames hanging on walls.

Still images at some point will probably be relegated to museums -- see you in the Mathew Brady room!

It used to be everyone who took a photo, with film, had it developed, printed, and if they really liked it, reprinted again larger... Now people photograph and rarely print, just keep them on their computer, websites, digital picture frame...  It's a brave new world for working photographers.
