1. What do you guys read into this mistake made by Canon Japan?

2. Why so many times do Canon and Nikon make this mistake on their very own website! I mean, does the web admin type in Canon EOS 5D Mark III then click upload/update and then only realize that it's live and therefore needs to put the page "down" asap?

The credibility is high here, we're talking about Canon Japan's website!

I'm a novice when it comes to discussion about the 5Diii (I still own a 5D which as you will recall has no video), but did anyone notice that what I assume is the microphone on this camera has five holes? Does any existing canon dslr model at any level have five? The 1DX has only three, and the 7D four. If nothing else it indicates, lest there was any doubt, that this is a non-released model and if it's a fake, you have to love their attention to detail.

bored IT admin showing his collegues how quickly he can whip several thousand people into a frenzy of speculation and hype?

I think if those IT guys at canon did that on purpose/joke they'd get sent to prison by canon!!

Canon have been so tight lipped about the 5D3 - this seems to be a really basic mistake.

I'd like to hear the real story!

@MichaelCruz  I lived in the Middle East for years. Call me crazy, but I think I'd recognize that rubble and sky anywhere. Do you know if these pics were taken in the Persian Gulf region?  Funny, everybody focused on the camera, but my mind kept saying "that looks like Bahrain or Qatar or UAE (Couch pattern is also very ME). I hope that doesn't give someone away, but it is interesting if they are testing there. Or maybe a rich Sheik already has one and that's where the pics came from?!

Wow, you have very keen eye!  The cam is here in Dubai :)

MICHAELCRUZ: The cam is "here" in Dubai? That means it's close to you! Go and get us more pictures and details!!! We're only around 60-80 hours away from announcement (CR3)... so you can't go wrong now  ;D

Ok everybody, let's take a deep breath and say
'I must stop refreshing my browser every 2 minutes,
I must stop refreshing my browser every 2 minutes,
I must stop refreshing by browser every 2 minutes,

you don´t go to prison for violating a NDA....
maybe in north korea....

oh it seems im wrong... other countrys seem to take it more seriously then my country.

CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. Several states and the federal government have passed laws that make the unauthorized disclosure, theft or use of a trade secret a crime. Under these laws the government, not private businesses, arrests the perpetrators and brings criminal charges. The penalties-including imprisonment-can be much more severe than in a civil suit. A person convicted of violating the federal Electronic Espionage Act of 1996 can be imprisoned up to 10 years. The filing of a criminal case does not prevent you from suing. For example, in a case involving the Avery-Dennison company, a Taiwanese competitor was ordered to pay $5 million in fines to the government as a result of criminal charges and $60 million to Avery-Dennison as a result of a civil lawsuit involving claims of trade secret misappropriation, RICO violations and conversion. Criminal prosecutions of trade secret theft are rare because many businesses prefer not to bring law enforcement officials into the fray. Also, in some cases, law enforcement officials don't wish to prosecute because there may not be sufficient evidence to obtain conviction. Keep in mind that the standards of proof for criminal cases are higher than for civil battles.

but i still don´t think posting images of a new product, when your under NDA, would get you into jail.
a civil lawsuite yes.. but i doubt it would get you jail time.

It looks like 1DX announcement has less stir than "semi-professional" 5Dm3 :)

C'mon guys, I'm already tired of refreshing  :P

Canon still don't have a built-in eyepiece cover for the 5D line like the Nikon D700 - making you use that S___ty little rubber eyepiece cover that might be attached to your neck strap, if you use a neck strap.

It's for light leakage doing low-light long exposures. Star trails, Lee Big Stopper work especially. Read you camera manual about why it's useful, and in some cases required. Similarly it's why we use lens hoods. Not all light is good light.

Have you read the camera manual?  I'm guessing no, so you might want to take your own advice.  The manual states, "If you take a picture without looking at the viewfinder, light entering the eyepiece can throw off the exposure. To prevent this, use the eyepiece cover..."  What 'throw off the exposure' means is that the metering will be affected, not the image itself, directly.  As others have tried to explain, shooting in manual mode solves this problem - you set the exposure while looking through the VF to compose the shot, then when you step back to remotely trigger, light entering the VF is irrelevant since the exposure will not change in manual mode (assuming you've set your ISO to a specific value, on models which support Auto ISO in M mode). 

During the exposure, the reflex mirror (the 'R' in dSLR) is flipped up and completely blocks light entering the viewfinder from reaching the sensor. If your camera is leaking light during long exposures, you should send it to Canon Service, because light leakage sufficient to affect an image directly means a defective camera.

Could we sticky this somewhere? Its bound to be brought up again... and again and again...
