A weird rumor surfaced. The rumor suggests Canon is working on a professional underwater camera that “would not require an underwater housing” and that is “far superior to any of the point and shoot options” out there.
I do not know how deep an underwater cameras has to go to be called a professional underwater camera. On the other hand I am pretty sure to know that without an external housing a camera can hardly be taken “seriously” underwater.
What do you think?[via CR]
