Yes, there are images released by Canon of the upcoming camera that continue to be displayed on their web pages with information about the EOS 1D X Mark III, such as the link included in my earlier comment to which you initially responded that led to the conversation including your comment quoted immediately above.

Are you trolling? I just explained that I was not aware of the images Released by Canon? What is so difficult to understand. There is no point in discussing this further.

You miss the point. Again.
The camera was given to a photographer for testing. This is my understanding. he is under NDA and not at liberty to release any information related to its properties: appearance, qualities, functions, price, look, feel, whatever.
That’s if one is under NDA. However, there is no such a limitation if there is no NDA in place.
And again, you're totally missing the point that pretty much all NDAs from manufacturers of consumer products will include language that releases the signatory from restrictions about revealing any specific information once it has been publicly revealed by the manufacturer.

Thus anyone who signed an NDA regarding the 1D X Mark III is now free to post images of the parts of the 1D X Mark III that Canon has since published, and they are free to discuss information about the 1D X Mark III that has since been openly published by Canon. They are still restricted only with regard to properties of the 1D X Mark II that Canon has not yet publicly disclosed, such as the sensor resolution, or what the back of the camera looks like, etc.

Are you trolling? You keep repeating yourself that when you replied to certain comments you didn't know about images that were linked in the very comments to which you were responding.

nope, negative. NDA is in a full force until such a time when images of the actual device have been released by IP holder into public domain or explicit permission to do so. they have not been yet. so....
Depends on the NDA. In theory it could have items:
-allow tester to publish pictures of the device (perhaps only front side as you noticed)
-allow publishing things after certain date
-etc

For such experienced photographer, I'm quite certain the picture wasn't accidental. Especially since the body actually says 1DX3. Most test-bodies don't say that to keep it secret, this time it was obviously intentional, including the post.

Again, depends on the NDA. I currently hold (non-camera) device under NDA, which has been published about same level (pictures & info) as Canon 1DX3 at the moment, but I'm still not allowed to publish any pictures or talk about any of the features, even the ones that are already out there.

ENOUGH of the NDA, seriously you guys, you have an unending desire to be right over all other things, it's unhealthy. Let it go, and then go watch Frozen if that doesn't help.

I have signed NDAs that had a specific date, and I have signed them that said never. Personally, I have yet to see one that said that once someone else blabbed, that I was free to. As to Canon NDAs, none of us know what is in it, and even if one did, they would not be talking.

At the time I made the statement I was not aware that Canon already released images of 1DX III into public domain. Hence my comment has to be viewed with that in mind. And you keep ignoring the fact and try to educate me about things I am professionally aware.
How difficult to understand that.

They typically say: until either explicitly permitted by IP holder, restricted by date or non withstanding or excluding information already available in public domain.
But you are correct. Pop corn it is. As there is no point to argue here. I was not aware, overlooked Canon released images of the camera. I would not comment otherwise. And I apologised for being incorrect.Why Michael is keep pressing his point is beyond my understanding.
