Several rumors have been circulating over the past several weeks that Canon will release a video-capable DSLR near Photokina. RED recently let us in on its development plans for a DSLR replacement camera.
Yesterday, RED pushed the button a little harder stating:
While (insert code name) is not a replacement for Epic or Scarlet, it is strategically targeted at the DSLR space. As Nikon and Canon release their 720P and 1080P, respectively, DSLRs with video capture… RED has a more advanced view of the future. We look forward to rapidly pushing the “big guys” along in feature sets and capabilities.

We know the Nikon D90 shoots HD video at 720P. Either RED is speculating or they know something we don’t about Canon; however, that’s pretty specific points to “speculate” about. Sounds like somebody knows something to me.
Will the 5D Mark II be the Canon camera with 1080P video capture?
