Rumor. Canon 5D Mark III Announcement On Feb 7, 2012.
Canon Rumors is reporting that the new Canon 5D Mark III will be announced on February 7, 2012. This would make a lot of sense as we get closer to NAB 2012. Here is a rip from the CR post. I’ll get cracking here to find out any new info. This could indeed be the best NAB we have had in some time.
Here is the post from CR.
Another source says it’s odd that Canon & Nikon would announce on the same day. I have yet to see an actual invite to a press event for February 7, 2012. Good people are saying it’s coming that day, my gut is telling me otherwise. I do think the camera will be announced well before the 1D X ships.
A few more people have mentioned February 7, 2012 as the announcement date for the 5D Mark III. The sources are good, though I am waiting for the definitive word on the matter.
It’s mentioned that Canon will also announce new PowerShot cameras, a new Legria camcorder and Selphy printer(s).
Kevin Wang, based in Taiwan, posted on his Facebook wall that he will be an official photographer for the 5D Mark III. (thanks Hansen)”
