Does anyone know if Canon is announcing a new Camcorder?

Canon has some cryptic message and a countdown timer about some big announcement tomorrow.

I can't help but wonder if this is what's going on, because everybody but Canon have brought out 4K-capable cameras. Time will tell.

I'm guessing a 6k camera. I do have a very big hint, I won't tell you from where until it's officially announced to see if what I saw is correct.

I'm guessing -- or rather; hoping -- that's it's a 12-bit (or even a 10-bit) 1DC2.

Yes, related to their dramatic announcement, that camera would be pathetic.

Looks more like they are launching a new logo and the 'quality message' that goes with it per the screed.

With the FS7 around the corner and Canon losing out in the sub 10k camera department, I think this announcement will be huge. Either it's an affordable 4k cine cam or or a whole new camera lineup or..ah never mind, can't wait to find out.

So much for the build up. Is this for real? The C300 and C500 have wonderful features but really, this is ridiculous.

Absolutely! Everyone needs to write a book, don't they?

Re: Does anyone know if Canon is announcing a new Camcorder?

Canon isn't in the habit of pushing the market. They follow the market. They follow it from a distance.

The whole dSLR video thing was a happy accident that Canon never saw coming. A 6k video camera would be pushing the market a bit.

I will be quite surprised if they do something revolutionary. Its not in their nature based on their history.

Re: Does anyone know if Canon is announcing a new Camcorder?

This is the big announcement:

Canon U.S.A. Unveils "Canon See Impossible" - A Branding Effort Empowering The Creative Spirit In Customers To Make The Impossible Possible

Which promotes this new CUSA site:

Canon See Impossible

In my opinion the reason why this thing is such a big deal for Canon USA, is because we're about one year (or less) away from the next Canon Global Expo, and this is their primary marketing message for that show. Hope this helps,

Put away your credit cards.
Don't know yet, but since there's been nobody talking about what they can't tell anyone due to an NDA with Canon, I ain't expecting any new hardware to be rolled out. I think it's like one web-site says, basically an advertising campaign, you know, create a "synergy" about their existing products.
