The "game changer" is going to be a PocketWizard-like radio control built into the Camera and the new 590EX flash heads. Who's with me on this?

Guys - I have it on good authority that Canon is holding a private announcement event on Friday, approx 2.30PM (local Sydney time). I know at least one top video guy is attending (I know him professionally), which points to a video-oriented product. Will keep you posted if I get more info.

Isn't that a couple of hours after the Shanghai event?  Shanghai is GMT + 8, so 9:30AM Shanghai is 1:30AMGMT.  Sydney is GMT + 11, so Shanghai event will occur at 12:30 PM Sydney time.  Someone check my calculations and reasoning but seems like the cat would already be out of the bag as far as private announcements go.

Ya well... Australia is behind on everything. :p

Australia is IN FRONT on everything.  Eastern time is -5 GMT and the Eastern states of Australia is DEST GMT +11!  Therefore we have to wait until 4pm on Friday (our time) before we get the NDAs expiring.   We're way in front and waiting for you guys to catch up!
Hahaha exactly, since when was Australia behind? We're a whole day ahead of USA.

Yet we still have shops selling the mark 2 at $2700+ and always have to wait for new gear to hit our shores... yes we live in the land *way* down under

In fact, it's their slogan for the EOS brand. The whole thing literally means "It's SLR, It's EOS".

:) :) :) I'm pretty excited to see what all this thing is going to pack. I really hope I won't have to buy the 1Dx to get what I want, plus more that I won't use...

NEWS UPDATE from Canon Shanghai Event for March 2nd.
I went to the site this afternoon. The Backdrop of Jackie Chan, I still can't see it very clearly what is he holding cause the site is still closed to public but the sign on the booth is written 1DX. Since 1DX hasn't debuted yet in China. So, what is on Jackie Chan Hand is just 1DX.

More images and some of videos of their rehearsal for their big screen showing some teaser still uploading.

The Canon Shanghai Event is not about IXUS Roadshow. But this actually Celebrating 15 Years of Canon China. There's divided into 4 booth there. EOS, PowerShot, IXUS and Legria. No sign of any 5D3 yet. Lets wait till tomorrow. The show will start at 6PM Shanghai Time.
