I was quite busy the past days and had very limited internet access.. I really dont have any further, information about the camera. Like all of you, I'm dying to know... Been waiting for this cam for over a year now...
I dont have access to the camera (how i wish!!) the one who supposedly have it posted this on his social media so he wishes to share it.. Whether it is with him or not we dont know. I know few people who knows him personally but they also havnt seen the cam yet. He is not saying anything about it.. Just posted the pictures and thats it. Im sure he doesnt work for canon but who knows...
Sorry guys, i guess we have to wait for a few days to know do some photoshoot it makes time flies quickly! Im sure theres more to this camera that we dont know yet... I wish canon announce this thing already!
And let the conspiracy theories begin anew with this post. Nothing seems to add up. How the heck can someone have both a 1DX and and 5D3 and not work for Canon in some fashion and have worked with them long enough to be given their two most anticipated new products? It would take a lot of built up trust and a long relationship with Canon to be given that privilege and why would you throw that away? Of course that begs the question how are we looking at these photos today and I really don't have an answer to that.
I don't buy the theory that Canon leaked these photos for publicity. Now I want that to be true and I think almost everyone reading this site would think that to leak photos as a marketing scheme would be a really smart move by Canon, after all we the customers are now peeing our pants with anticipation so naturally we'd think it would be a smart move, it would be the cool thing to do (not the peeing, really, thats not cool), but it just doesn't seem like something Canon would do. My impression of Canon is that they would think that doing such a leek would make them look out of control of their product research, general mismanagement and incompetence which is something they would value much more than extra hype around a product that we already dream about. The 5D3 doesn't even really need to be advertised in the first place cause it has such a massive fan base that is looking for any sign of it. So could these cams be stolen? Is the owner/tester an idiot? I don't think we'll ever know. And we're not going to get the link to the social site out of michaelrcruz, he's covering his tracks. But don't get me wrong Michael, you are a hero in our books.
And don't forget Canon is under no obligation to announce ANYTHING this Friday, so don't go jumping off a building if they don't.
UPDATE: I take it back. CR's new post gives us reason to jump.
