the only invite i've seen for a Canon event in the next few days clearly headlined the "IXUS" lineup at the center of the invitation.
I'm starting to believe that is all we will see.
Why would they announce a 5DX/III with a headline of "IXUS"?

On other invitations for big DSLR releases, the nature of the invite was much more mysterious and dramatic.... why would an IXUS headline the invitation and the next 5D be an afterthought......
I really, really hope that i'm wrong or there is other invitations/events I don't know about.
Do you have a link or pciture of the invitation??thanks

Canon announced their latest IXUS on the 7th of Feb.. surely there's not another IXUS announcement within a month?

I guess to safeguard their own reputation... Professional ethics also. :p
What professional ethics?

IMO There's not much of a reputation when it comes to rumors/leaks sites.  At least most company PRs won't welcome like this kind of information siphoning.

+1 I want to see that invite too...

In fact, have been wondering if there will be a press launch in my area this Friday also but there's no one I can speak to.  Inquiries to local tech press people will definitely run straight into the brickwall.  Local photo forums are generally crap speak and I find those site useless.

Craig@CR rarely leaks media event information in open domain, unlike Peter@NR.  Why?
I have spent a while today searching for the image I saw and I cant find it anywhere. It definitely has been seen by people in other forums, I saw it randomly searching rumors websites i hardly ever visit late last night
people are talking about it in post 4057 and 4067 here
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?p=13968571&highlight=ixus#post13968571
it was on the front page of a totally random photo website, and seemed to be what CR guy was talking about. It said nothing but "speed" "quality" "IXUS" and some other non descript stuff. it wasn't very dramatic and was very colorful. I wasn't very excited when i saw it. I wish I could find it again, if someone has the link i'd appreciate it too as I'm going a little crazy right now trying to figure out where I saw it.

Sorry, guys. Nokia has officially won the MP race  :P

Nokia 808 Pure View Phone Has a 41-Megapixel Camera. FORTY-ONE ACTUAL MEGAPIXELS.



That's it... goodbye Canon  ::)
Wow. I know they're Zeiss lenses, but can such a small thing really outresolve 41mpx?  :-X

I'm sure Photoshop could make that possible :)

Fake. The "III" is placed at an odd angle next to "Mark". I say poor photoshop skills :)

Seems highly plausible. It looks like a combination of 7D design and 5D logo.

And the missing popup flash button suggest it is a model without inbuilt flash.

Perhaps this is it :)

I haven't.
I just did a quick check on canon website and what i observed was the openings pattern for the microphone in the photo is definitely different. None of the current canon bodies have such a pattern! hmm..

Agreed.  This is definitely plausible.  This could be in keeping with the Kenyan prototype keeping the 7D styling/layout.
The other thing that is interesting is the 5 hole microphone port.  I think all existing cameras with video have a 4 hole port.  Could be wrong, but this is definitely plausible.
