Engadget has posted a story about the latest Canon screening (which planet5D has been invited to as well) and CanonRumors followed up with their own take on the story (see their reports below). Obviously, they've recently announced the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and last fall announced the Canon EOS-1D X, so what could this be?
Could Canon possibly be announcing the 4k HDSLR they teased us with back at the November 3rd Canon EOS C300 announcement? If it does lead to something like a new HDSLR or if it is ‘just' a showing of new Cinema EOS technology, planet5D will be there to bring you the news!
With both its 1D and 5D-series models already confirmed for 2012, today's Canon teaser hints at something slightly different — and, according to our sources, a major announcement. The event is set for April 15th — during the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas — further confirming that whatever imaging device we'll see will likely be geared towards the motion picture and television communities. So, what could it be? A new Cinema EOS cam with a 1D form-factor? A lower-priced model poised to compete with the RED Scarlet?
New Gear for NAB 2012?
Canon has started to tease with Cinema EOS again. Are we going to see new products announced prior to the show? We’ve heard the 4K Cinema EOS DSLR would be announced “sooner than later”. Others have said it could be the Ron Howard project (thanks unfocused) being shown. We’ll be at NAB to find out.
The event will take place on Sunday, April 15, 2012 at 5PM
