*UPDATE 1* Nikon Announcements Next Week
A reader has written in about this post and says the big megapixel camera is from Nikon.
A Nikon division (I won't mention the country) will be showing new Nikon products on August 24, 2011. The showing is “confidential” and will require an NDA. We already know the Nikon mirrorless will be coming.
Please don't yell at me for posting Nikon stuff on Canon Rumors (trust me, it'll happen).
Whatever Nikon does, could give some insight into what Canon and others in the industry will do. Photographic equipment companies rarely one up each other in the span of a month or so.
I received word that one manufacturer will surprise everyone with a big megapixel camera next Thursday, August 25, 2011.
The report is very vague, but comes from a bang on source. I'd almost [CR3] this.
5D Mark III
Two great sources are both saying Canon is extremely quiet at the moment. There hasn't been a real whisper about anything upcoming.
I am finished posting spec lists until I hear something more concrete.
A lot of people are talking about price drops of the 5D Mark II. It's pretty interesting to me too. We're coming up to 3 years on the Mark II. Maybe there will be something announced in 2011.
No one has received any press invites to a Canon event yet.
It looks like Nikon will announce first.
