No real 60D/7d/1D4 Leaks
Aug 18, 2009

Very different from the past when we had concrete information from different sources.

IMO this means that either Canon is not planning any meaningful announcement (unlikely), or that a major surprise is coming. Remember the 5D1 announcement - Canon can keep a secret is it wants to.

Spoken like an optimist . I hope so too, but keep in mind there is a third alternative: there is something coming, but it is no major surprise - just an expected and incremental upgrade.

This forum is based in England, right?
In reply to flyingmonkey, Aug 18, 2009

Is England not 5-6 hours ahead of New Yourk. So if their holding out for the 19th, will we not be getting information very soon. Maybe 7:00 or 8:00 to night? That is if there is news.

typically NDAs will be set to expire as of a particular time in a certain time zone. so it could be noon eastern for all we know.

Before the 5D1 announcement there was a leaked PDF in Spanish - about three weeks before the official announcement.

In the last three-four years, when no leaks had appeared before a rumored announcement date ... there had been no announcement at that date.

Yes but they always announce out of Amsterdam for some reason. Tou should expect to see something up in this site this evening (at least that is how it has been the last couple years).

no that really never happened. what we had was a bunch of sources claiming totally different things, and eventually, some of them gotta be right.

Maybe no release?
In reply to HyperYagami, Aug 18, 2009

There were reports earlier this year that there wasn't going to be a 60D release in August at all, but early in the new year - as per the 'traditional' 18 month release cycle.

That would certainly explain the lack of leaks.

In reply to dror yalon, Aug 18, 2009

Announcements on DP Review front page always appear at 12am EST time from Canon, or at least all the ones I have seen in the past were.

50D was leaked a week before with product photos and sample images, no one believed it.

5DMK2 was not leaked though Canon had teaser site and it was OBVIOUS that it would be some sort of 5D 2.

Rebels never get leaked, when they do no one believes them.

Im sure this pattern continues for other bodies but I have not been on here long enough to see a release of a 1 series camera.

So it doesnt matter if we had a leak or not, no one would believe it!

I'm betting a 50D body and same sensor but with a Digic V to deliver ISO 42,000 and an integrated MP3 player.

I have a sneaking suspicion that I'll be more interested in the model holding the camera than the new model camera.

for what it is worth my local camera shop says sept.1st will be an announcement of a full frame priced at the nikon d300 range...he says canon rep indicated that was the only way of getting low noise from a 15mb sensor.

I believe they follow the time of the official press release. Canon USA isn't going to send out its press release at midnight. I think it's been 12pm (noon) in the past.

So, why would anyone buy a 5Dii??? on the other hand, would we buy a 60D with the original 5d sensor in it? That might be interesting, just recycle the 12.8mp sensor in a 60D!

Oh, wait... I could just buy a used 5d!!!!

Re: canon discontinues..
In reply to dror yalon, Aug 19, 2009

My dealer told me canon has discontinued a number of low and higher end models. That was all he was allowed to say. Other dealers around the world must know the same thing?
