Someone (or more than one person) in Canon Australia is out of a job.

A complete leak like this 10 days before release? I can't fathom how much money Canon spends on actual announcements. Sure some stuff is bound to leak out 1-2 days before hand like it always does - but this long in advance? from Canon themselves? ouch.

This is not a "leak". It is an intentional release to stir up interest and was done with the full knowledge of corporate. Every manufacturer has been using this tactic for a while now. Marketing just has to release a single web link and all of the camera blogs are on fire for days. Massive exposure for practically nothing and hopefully people will get whipped into a frenzy and preorder the minute after announcement.

No it isn't.

That's an internet myth.

Seriously? You think people from Canon Australia are so inept that they would "accidentally" upload official promo videos to the official Canon channel prematurely?

yes. the tech sheet was really inaccurate, not a polished tech sheet and simply wrong.

someone made a mistake it happens.

I am not talking about the tech sheet that is full of mistakes.

yes, let's ignore 1/2 of the information from the same source (canon australia) because it doesn't fit with your narrative.

I am talking about the official youtube videos that were posted on an official Canon youtube channel.

sure, that's a listbox selection to make it private versus unlisted / public.

mistakes do happen.

if it was official it wouldn't have come from Canon Australia.

Not to mention that videos such as that one are usually regional.  Canon USA for instance will make its own videos for the M6 Mark II.

and they certainly wouldn't have leaked a draft tech sheet at the same time.
