We just may see it in 2009
According to a report [NL] there is a hold up with the new 1D and its movie capabilities.
“…Canon has a replacement for the 1D MKIII ready to launch during the second quarter of 2009. What’s holding Canon back is a decision from FIFA … to allow pro-cameras with video capability ( see 5D MKII) during sporting events. FIFA is currently looking into the legal implications with television rights and contracts with broadcasters. If FIFA give the green light then Canon will release the camera.”
I’ve waited to comment on it until I heard some first hand info. “It’s not a huge deal and won’t delay the launch of the camera.”
What I also heard was a possible announcement date of May 19, 2009.
I have no spec outlines yet, but they’ll be coming.
