Offical Canon source : Canon's 7D announcement : september 16

Mark the date.

My source is one of the top technological officers at canon's EMEA tech branch

He said to me last night that he can only mark the date for me as "D-day" but he can't reveal the spec (maybe he will within couple of days during the weekend)

Yep, I think that's the date that most people here assumed, having been tipped off by dotcom editor, though others though it could be Monday based on a chinese new moon and the teaser campaign. Thanks for confirming it. Not long to wait now.

No offense, but if it's not "on the record" and the person is anonymous, then it's not "an official source".

The next Sunday (15/Sep) on lunar calendar is Mid-Autumn Day festival in China which means that's the single date the moon shows as perfect circle in Eastern Asia, a real full moon. In terns of Canon's moonlight AD, I will put my money non 16/Sep..

The OP didn't say his source gave him that date in secret. Chill out man.

I have been told from a UK pro Canon dealer that they will know, and be able to release specs and price on 17th September, many other posters in other areas have apparantly been given the same date so it appears that the 16/17th will be the official release date.

Re: Not Official If Anonymous

I agree.

Because, I heard from a guy, that heard from another guy that the new camera is going to be the 50Da version.

No offense, but if it's not "on the record" and the person is
anonymous, then it's not "an official source".

september 16 or the 17th depending on time zone

september 16, evening in the US = 17 early morning in Europe = 17 during the day in Japan ... these dates matches with other. Same hours as the 50D.

Less than one week !

Take pictures meanwhile !

Re: september 16 or the 17th depending on time zone

And ...... September 16th is Mexican Independence Day.

Which is a coincidence because a close fiend of mine is repsonsible for every technical development at every company in the world and when I asked him about it he didn't know.

AND... he's never been to Mexico

Fishy eh?

Not sure what year your thinking of, but in 2008, 15 September is a Monday, NOT a Sunday. 3 different calendars here all show Monday as the 15th Sept.

I suspect your source is a drinking buddy

I like to sit at lunch and take a few minutes to read the insanity here about this new camera(s). As the great John Wayne would say:

This is regodamndiculous!

Who cares when the info is released???? You ain't getting one for a while are they are going make more than 10 so no worries about not getting one.

Everyone here is getting the panties in a twist over an announcement. I love all of you and all, but I am getting a little worried that this insanity may effect your health.

Sit back and relax, go out and use the great equipment you already have and create beautiful art. Patience is a virtue, calm down, stop playing with the images in photoshop blown up 1000x to see if you can make out a model number and stop the insanity of all this.

Don't you have any good beer in your frig, a wife or husband to hug, or a child to play with?
