Re: NEW 5D available in August!

before i would buy any new canon high end camera i would wait for this forums "OUR FULL REVIEW". it seems the 1ds III and 1dIII have been refused "OUR FULL REVIEW" by the professionals at dpr. if the professionals won't review these high end cameras, there must be some problem with them. maybe the new 5d will be just fine, but without dpr's "OUR FULL REVIEW" i would not consider buying it.

The info seems credible and at least we have something to chew.

No detail on the camera/cameras, just one date for the official press
release in France as told to him by someone at Canon France :
September 17th.

Any idiot (that includes camera store employees) could guess the week before Photokina and have a pretty good chance of being right.

Re: August 22-23 :)

As far as I see - Canon always make an announcement of "revolutionary" new cameras just before my birthday - August 24 :)))

Let's chek it:

1. Canon EOS-300D / Digital Rebel - Announced August 20, 2003

  • "The first DSLR under $1000"

  • "Canon believes the EOS 300D will be seen as the point in history when the SLR market shifted irrevocably to digital."

this was made a specially for me.. :))) and I'v got it

2. Canon EOS 5D Announced August 22, 2005
-"The world's First premium DSLR"
-"Canon’s full frame, compact EOS 5D defines new D-SLR category"

this was made a specially for me also.. :))) and I'v got it too...

3. Canon EOS 5D Mark-II Will be Announced between August 20-23, 2008 !!

(..but detailed PDF with specifications will be found somewhere in Eastern Europe in about 2-3 weeks in advance ... ) :))))

Better switch to Nikon then. It does appear that DPR is biased towards Nikon when it comes to doing full, in depth reviews of cameras.

You may be waiting a while before you are willing to buy a new Canon then, if you ever bought another Canon, due to waiting for DPR.

FYI!
I have been waiting for news on the New 5D from my Chinese Canon
suppliers,
Today I have been told by 2 separate unrelated suppliers that the new
Canon 5D will be available to purchase in China at the end of August,
Also I have been told this is official Canon product, not Grey market,
I will try to get any available details on specification and price
tomorrow!

Grey Market? Grey market, or Grey imports are genuine products, or in your words, "official Canon product". They are just imported into a country through non-official importers/suppliers. Cut out the middleman so to speak, hence the cheaper price and no local official warranty.

Did you mean to say they wouldn't be counterfeit products?

Guys

I'm an idiot for sure as I trust the man that gave this date, and think it will be the good one for the press unveiling.

Of course and as many others have "stated" here, is right before Photokina

Good speculation and see ya after the holydays. Most certainly nothing interesting will be happening until September 17 but a few leaks a couple od days before with, let say TSiphoto...

Lets be gentle with words. Lets firmly express our convictions but be gentle with the language that we use. Lets disagree without hurting people.

How to stop 5D rumors

Hi,

Why can’t we get a friendly ayatollah to declare a fatwa against anyone who publishes a rumor concerning the 5D? Then, anyone who posts such a rumor on Dpreview is declared apostate and stoned (far too light a punishment in my opinion). However, if some people think a religious solution too drastic, perhaps we can convince malware manufacturers such as Norton to include 5D rumor-mongering malware filtering in all their software.

And if none of that works, maybe keel hauling after 40 lashes would do the trick.

No problem

I could be that idioit if I would have spread rumors and nonsense like I read lately on DPR so I understand your point, no problem.

Once again you and everybody else can trust or not what I say. I'ts just a "normal" press release announced to the Company employees with a classic "get ready for hell guys in the last 08 quarter" that could mean that something good is coming. But the guy did not announce any features, names, prices or anything else, adding that Canon's embargo is very proof. Which is true so far.

Leaks will anyway be starting, September 17th is less than 2 months away so let's hope for the best and, for me, let's look for another RAW converter as I do use and love RSP but any new cam is unsupported...

What happens if the rumour turns out to be true? It's hard to "unstone" people, as anyone involved in rehab can tell you.
Anyway, stoning is only for those who say "Jehovah".

Cheers

This post is not a valid reason to stone me, since I didn't say "Jehovah", I only typed it.

Re: August 2525 :-). (nt)

In the year 2525,
If Canon's still alive,
If Nikon can survive,
They may find...

Perhaps it's better not to continue with the paraphrasing of this song.
