Re: Launching date for 1D Mark IV

I wonder if they're correct.

PJSHOOTER says his friends are still "testing" the 1D Mark IV and finding focus issues. Can Canon fix them that fast?

Something doesn't add up! (laughing)

Don't know if this has been posted, but the Canon 1D Mark IV is in Time Magazine's The Top 10 Everything of 2009 - Top 10 Gadgets:

Now let's hope that this is actually going to be in 2009.

Re: Called B&H...

I called B&H the other day to see if I could get anyone to tell me anything and the person on the phone said that they are now not expecting any shipments of the Mark IV until after the holiday. I'll be surprised if it is available in 2009 in the U.S.

Time: Sister pub of SI, which shoots Canon

Do you think the fact that Sports Illustrated shoots Canon equipment had something to do with this? Is Time Inc. making nice to Canon?

YOU said it

Thank you.

Time magazine, that great and well researched periodical which is beyond reproach.

It is just another left wing liberal Vision of the Anointed propaganda machine. Anything from the likes of this magazine needs to be interpreted with much caution.

Re: Launching date for 1D Mark IV

FWIW - A photographer in England on another forum claimed his NDA expired on the 9th and release was 5 days later.

Re: Launching date for 1D Mark IV

That's interesting. Because all of the camera stores I've spoken to in the UK are saying later rather than sooner. Some are semi-optimistic about a pre-Christmas release, but most say after Christmas or into the NY.

I reckon the release WAS initially scheduled to be just after Dec 9, but for some reason has been pushed back. I doubt it has anything to do with problems with the camera, more logistics.

Re: Launching date for 1D Mark IV

well if NDA's end a couple days ago.. there should be some more info out about the cam in general. Granted I have not been trying to find it.

Re: Launching date for 1D Mark IV

I like Priaptor's made up list of adjectives for the magazine he currently loves to hate. He could probably give us a release date with as much name calling, non factual blather.

This is a photography forum, not an outlet for your spleen, Priaptor. If you can give us data please do so.
