Is that a light at the end of the tunnel -- or a white phosphorus round coming at my heart?

As much as I love my 5d (and Canon for 2x fixing it free of charge even though it's been out of warranty for many years), I'm ready for the upgrade.  So big cheers for the CR3!  :-*

February 28, 2012 is still shaping up as the day of an announcement, though it could be a week later.

Sounds wishy-washy to me...

The excitement around the Nikon D800 has most Canon shooters either scratching their heads or drooling with envy, so it was a no brainer that Canon has to make some significant announcement of their own very soon. The next most likely candidate for such an announcement would be the FF 5D Mark (III? X? whatever Canon wants to call it).


I shoot a lot of magazine, beauty and fashion portraits, so I'm really hoping for a large megapixel studio camera to give me lots of detail for cropping. I even wish (though I know it's not going to happen) that Canon could give us a camera with a sensor larger than 35mm Full Frame and yes I would be willing to buy more glass for a camera like that.

My credit cards are burnin'.
I'll be getting one but does any body know any more about the video, still h.264? Or a version of H.264 with different compression?


I read a while back that Canon was working on a new video RAW format that could be recorded to CF Cards. This would be a great time to announce it along with a new FF 5D camera. Let's be hopeful.

 When are they going to start the preliminary advertising?  Remember the silhouette of the 5D mkII and the cryptic slogan.

I have a D800 on pre-order, so a February 28 announcement will give me plenty of time to cancel it if the 5DIII is up to snuff.

Hope they annoucement will bring smth which let me stay with canon. Otherwise i will go back to my trusty old friend nikon. I really keep my fingers crossed for good af, better built quality, slighty better iso and better dynamic range. A lot of expectations to meet, i know but i wait a long time to see what both companies finally bring. I was not happy with 5d2 but have invested already a lot in lenses, so for me the annoucment will be almost a a decision maker, hope the first reviews will come asap.

We’re still unsure if it’ll be a 5D Mark III or a 5D X

Bring both to us Canon!

I will hit the "Put in Cart" button for both the 22MP 61-pt AF 5D III and 36+ MP 5D X...

Oh wait, where is the pre-order button??  Please don't say "Estimated availability in April May June July 2012!!!"   ;) ;) ;)

Great blow to Nikon if canon can announce and shipment the next 2 days.
I would like to see that happen.
