3XD spotted?
Feb 15, 2006

I was looking through a copy of this weeks Autosport magazine with an article about Valentino Rossi's possible switch to F1 from Moto GP.

The article had pictures from the Valencia F1 test where Rossi tested for Ferrari on an open track for the first time, there is a picture of Valentino with a scrum of photogs around him and right at the front, in his face, is a Canon heavily covered with duct tape!

No visible markings to show it's a Canon but the 580EX mounted to it gives the game away...it's a Canon but what?

It's not the best shot of the camera as the bottom of it is cropped away, or out of shot, but it doesn't look big enough around the mirror housing to be a 1D series but it's is so plastered in tape it's not possible to say what it is? The shape looks more 5D than 1D but no way to tell exactly what it is?
Would Canon release a 3XD as a test mule for photo journalist in the field?
