I've never seen that before on any camera listing. I'm wondering if it's possible to see if the FCC has approved other cameras in the past (like the new 5D3 for example), or does the the 1Dx have something in it that requires an FCC approval.
Yes, but that's an option on most of the camera's, and it is an external option here. You would think that would be stated on the Wifi module, not the camera. You don't need the module to operate that camera and it's not built-in.
It's just funny I had never seen that on any previous camera announcements, and I'm wondering if it does not have current FCC approval, if that's the delay. Think about it, would you roll these off an assembly line if they weren't approved yet for FCC radio noise interference? And if you did, and found out you had to make a pretty significant shielding change, then what?
Sell the failing ones overseas? But you could not use them in the US....
This is kinda interesting, because if the line has not started producing them yet pending FCC approval, it might be a lot longer than April/May for them to start showing up.
