Canon EOS 3D Outed by B&H Photo [CR0]
« on: October 02, 2012, 06:06:55 PM »

So…..

I received a screenshot that showed an EOS 3D being outed by B&H Photo. It seems to be making the rounds around the web and at the 30th email about it, I have decided to post it.


I am 99.9% sure this is a hoax, as B&H Photo is on holiday and I doubt they’d be adding and removing products that haven’t been announced. Even if a new camera is coming for PhotoPlus, this is way too soon for B&H Photo to be notified of new products. Not to mention the fact that the manufacturer numberĀ 5266B002 is for the PowerShot Elph 510HS. Most of the specs here have been taken from the Canon EOS-1D X, as you can see from the lowercase “p” in MP. If you search the 5D Mark III or 7D, you get a different way to show megapixels. The kerning of the 46.1mp also seems to be off. Hoax, hoax, hoax!


Here’s the screenshot making the rounds, make of it what you will. Notice the [CR0] rating… :)

Wouldn't it say pre-order only or whatever the 6D now says at B&H?? yet this says Back-ordered?  Definitely smells funny to me...

$1,799? What a steal! That's just $0.000018 per pixel!

This is not a hoax. The proper term would be internet marketing. They are using sites like this and others to their advantage. To B+H it does not make any difference as long as we are talking about them, and linking to them. 
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

I'm curious why you say that.  Are you the target market?  i.e. Do you have $6K plus to drop on a body?

Just some simple HTML magic

I have been lurking this forum for about a year, and I had to make an account just to say that I just woke up my roommate from laughing so hard at the specs for the "2D". Maybe if that was real, we could finally get everyone to quit complaining about everything Canon does.  ;D

This has better specs than a 1Dx :P? Maybe you should call is 0D

Yeah, that's definitely fake. They'd most likely post it as a pre-order item. Also, I've never seen a DSLR listing where you can't clearly read the model from the photo. Also, BH always show the Compare checkbox under all of their cameras.

So yes, it was simply taken from the 1Dx page and doctored to add fuel to the hype fire.
