(Edited: CW1, fake) Canon EOS C700x Image and Specification Leaked (coming with global shutter and 4k?)

700x

Hard to say if this is a reliable rumor, or not. Image and specs of an unseen Canon EOS C700x leaked over the web. There is more. According to the rumours, Canon may planing the introduction of global shutter and 4K video in the EOS Cinema lineup. It would also mean Canon is going to introduce a new model in their Cinema line-up. I prefer to rate this rumor CW3 for the time being.

About our rumor rating:

  • CW1 – probably fake rumor, not reliable
  • CW2 – rumor from an unknown/new source, but otherwise at least a plausible rumor
  • CW3 – a 50% chance to be real, coming from a known source, or from new source with good insight in Canon’s business
  • CW4 – rumor from a known source that was right in the past
  • CW5 – as good as certain to be true
