  • 100% viewfinder
  • 3.2″ display
  • Dual CF/SD card slots
  • Will cost around US$3500
  • Battery Grip BG-E11

UPDATE: More Information about the Supposed Announcement Date of the 5D3

This is from the (Italian) forum where the image of the Canon event expected for March 2th comes from.

The image and alleged theories about a imminent announcement of the 5D3/5Dx appeared on many dedicated Internet sites, to to mention the buzz on Twitter. However, things are not that sure as they may seem.

The strange thing: the invitation (written in Italian) for a “breakfast at EOS” (that’s the translation, trust me: I speak Italian) appeared on this site, and then disappeared (but you can check it here, it’s the Google-cached version of the original page). Read it Google translated clicking here.

Some thoughts about:

  • I couldn’t find any “invitation” written in English on the Internet; isn’t that somewhat strange?
  • Why has the image been posted and then be deleted?
  • Is this a hoax? (but I do not think the original poster wanted to fool us)
However, on the same forum two images of a Canon soon-to-be-started event appeared.
This one in Shanghai:

And this one…well, I do not know, maybe in Italy (not really, indeed :-)…: Photobucket

Finally, this is the very first forum post (click here, and here for the Google translation) where the invitation image showed up . The post dates February, 27.

I am confused and really would like to know what you think about. Is it a hoax?

Invites for a Canon Event on Friday March, 2

It’s all over the Twitter-sphere: invitations for a Canon event scheduled on Friday March 2th have been sent out.

Singapore, Paris and Shanghai and, according to the image (written in Italian), Italy (I guess Milan) are the locations.

Things are getting exciting!
