New Canon Super 35 Video Camera Rumor Parody.
Here is a little xtranormal action I whipped up really quickly. There was some super secret stuff going on over at Birns and Sawyer yesterday under a duvetyne tent. My right hand man Chris Collins just happened to be there prepping a camera. Here is a quote from him.
“I was at Birns and Sawyer working out support gear on our FS100, and there was a duvatyne tent blocking off the last two prep bays. Somebody mentioned that there was a new camera, and nobody was allowed to see. When I asked Tim Smith about it, he told me that he was working on some DSLRs for the upcoming Ron Howard shoot. He did have 5D batteries in his hand.”
I hit up Birns and Sawyer today and basically got “NDA’ed.” Not a ton of info there. I did manage to pick up a few tidbits of info via email that suggests that the top mount LCD is removable. I also feel very confidant that the new camera from Canon will have a Super 35mm sized sensor. I was told that “I am pretty close in my findings” Here is a link to the first rumor posted on September 13th, 2011. I also have a feeling that the EF mount version will be much cheaper than expected. I am guessing that it will be in the 5K price range. I will try and add updates when available. Thanks for checking us out.
There are fresh rumors of a possible late October, 2011 5D Mark III announcement by EOS HD. I have also heard about the 5D3 testing here in Hollywood. However, it’s getting a little out of hand at this point but I will try and keep you all posted. Please note that all of this information is second hand. Please take it with a grain of salt. We will know soon enough. In the meantime I found this old video about the Canon 5D3. Dig it.
Canon Rumors is reporting that there will not be a 5DMKIII announcement on November 3rd, 2011. I would agree with that statement. I do not think that Canon will dilute the Hollywood event with a 5D3. However it would be nice to have everything laid out for the new year.
I confirmed that the on camera LCD is removable. I also got a feeling that the price will be a little higher than expected. In the $12K price range. This could be a real bummer. However let’s hope the EF mount version will be more like $5-6K but I doubt it.
