Son of a.....   and we had not stopped yapping about the 6D yet... 

I couldn't care less about the 6D.  But a shooting remote that also happens to be my phone?  THAT I care about.  :-)

Me too but I also care about the resale value of my 5D3... which Adorama is bent upon crashing...

Who wrote that app?
Canon? Or just some guy who works elsewhere?

If canon wrote it, then ok, it's more believable.
But still, 4 in Chinese / Japanese is 四, 'sì' in Mandarin. Death is 死, 'sǐ'.

They've just proven that there will be no G13 or G14 (14, 十四, 'shī sì', sounds like 尸死, 'shī sǐ', 'dead corpse', 逝 shì means die, 弑 shì means 'murder a superior' (yes, I just went through my dictionary and found them)).

In short, they're a superstitious bunch (or at least, they acknowledge that their customers are), there will never be an EOS 4D.
I'm guessing that some other guy wrote the app, and it's a typo, he really meant to write '3D', which will be the kick-ass high-MP camera we're all waiting for :)

As I'm sure has been pointed out before, superstition never stopped Nikon releasing the D4.

What! You let logic get in the way of a good conspiracy theory. How could you!

Let's see, the video is clearly promoting the new remote function of the 6D. The camera shown is clearly the 6D and when you go to the Canon website link, it's all about the 6D (and the 7D, which is pretty interesting actually). So, either a typo or more likely the graphic designer of the iPhone image was told to obscure the model number for some reason. Definitely not a "4" and not significant anyway.

yes it´s nonsense most of the time... but westeners repeat it over and over.

nonsense maybe, but i'd take the lack of G13 and G14 as a bit of a pointer...

(still, whatever they call it, I hope it's the big MP body and not as disappointing as the 5D mk2.01 they just released)

I have another idea - apart from it being a typo.

It could be "Canon EOS ID" as in Identity

it could be a default name for the camera inside the app - like how iPhones and iPods have default names in iTunes that you can change to suit your quirky nature ;)

so yes, I vote that "Canon EOS ID" is a customizable name that you can give to your camera inside the phone app.

I have no idea what the heck that is.  It doesn't look like a "4" an "I" or a "1".  It just looks whacky!  Maybe just a placeholder for an as-yet-unnamed DSLR body?  Beats me.

Also, has anyone else noticed that there are TWO status bars in the photo?  Clearly some funky photoshop was going on at Canon central.  Two clocks, two wifi symbols...

WTF?   :o

It'll be the 4D for sure. Guaranteed. Why? Think about it.

7D - taken
6D - taken
5D - taken
4D - free
3D - misleading. Consumers will think "Dimension" rather than "Digital"
2D - misleading. Consumers will think "Dimension" rather than "Digital"
1D - taken

Of course it could be 8D or 9D, but really would they want to make it look worse from a numbering perspective than the 7D or 6D? No. they have nowhere else to go. 4D it is.  Nikon did the right thing IMHO by putting the D in the front - another win to Nikon. (I'm a Canon fan but I call it like it is).

I think it is a poorly rendered 1 actually, which would make more sense than 4 or typo.

Looks like a '4' to me. Pretty thin argument though, not sure I'd anticipate a new model  based on this.

Chances are - it's a screenshot of a development prototype of the app. It may have had the working name of "4D" and been changed to 6D for release.
Either way, it requires a WiFi connection (which only the 6D has as a built-in feature) - so I think that's the situation.

The funny thing is Canon had the D in the front first (D2000, D30, D60), but then moved it to the end starting with the 1D (although the D60 came out just after the 1D).

Yeah, nikon did it first with the F1, F2, F5, F90, etc.
I presume that meant F for F-Mount, but nowadays it's more like F for Film, and the D1 is D for Digital.
Once Canon realised that names like D30 and D60 were going to create problems, they changed it to 1D etc.

Still, I don't buy the "we can't have an EOS 3D because people will think it takes 3Dimensional photos". If you're that stupid to buy a (presumably) $4000 camera just 'thinking' it takes 3D photos, you deserve it. "A fool and his money are soon parted" is the expression i'm thinking of.
But a big MP camera called 2D, why not?

As Canon is running out of the free names I belive they gonna come up with a revolutionary sensor that has 16EV and it will be used in all new dslr-s so the modles will be named Canon HDR-1, Canon HDR-70... ;-)
