Canon EOS 3D Spotted in the Wild?

The above image has surfaced of a man carrying a full-size Canon EOS camera with that appears to be an EOS 3D strap attached to the camera. Could the fabled Canon EOS 3D be just around the corner?

Looking closer at the strap, it appears that it could only read EOS 3D.

Of course, this could be a hoax as we’ve seen before; however, that strap appears to be legit. Could it be a Canon 1D X or other 1-series body with a faked 3D strap? Maybe.

Last August, the Canon EOS 3D was rumored to be coming in the the form of a 46MP+ full frame shooter. And, then in October, we saw what appeared to be a B&H listing for an EOS 3D camera at 46.1MP.

Previously rumored specs are below.

Canon EOS 3D Spec Rumors

  • 46 MP
  • 3.7 frame per second
  • Dual DIGIC 5+
  • ISO: (25) 50-6400 (12800)
  • AF: Same as 1DX
  • USB 3
  • CF+SD

What do you think of this image and the “EOS 3D” strap?

That would be cool! I’ve been putting off upgrading my 5D MkII, and this would push me over the edge (depending on price)

SD? Why??? I thought Canon just got it right to use the two CFs instead.

I reckon that the strap is fake. If it was real surely Canon would have said something about it.
It seems a little odd that only a tiny part of it is showing yet on the other side of the strap it is backwards.

It’s a lot easier to fake a strap than it is to Photoshop an EOS 3D.

Watch how excited I can get the internet with a 6D strap and a black Sharpie!

Why camera is blurred? Did you blurred it Photographybay? Seems like a hoax to me.

I’m MORE interested in the “white” lens that’s attached to the blurred dSLR…. Is that the long-awaited EF 10-1000/0.95 L IS lens that I’ve heard so much about, with the rumored $99.95 list price?????

Yes, it’s the 10-1000 mm f/0.95 with L glass, IS, diffractive optics/high resolution.

As in Canon EF 10-1000mm f/0.95L IS D’Oh!

The price is $199.90 but it’s available on a Buy One, Get One Free (BOGOF) offer at Walmart.
