Default New 1Ds

Canon-Europa website inadvertently posted a press release early regarding the announcement of their 1Ds with an 11.1mp CMOS, full frame sensor. I cannot give the site because it was pulled after only ten minutes. DP review has yanked all reference to the post also.

Default 1Ds

Here is a portion of the press release that I was able to retrieve:

Canon Consumer Imaging


Photokina marks the 15-year anniversary of EOS as a brand. Canon is announcing two new EOS models at the show - the world's highest resolution Pro-camera, the EOS 1Ds and the EOS 300V, which is predicted to become the world’s number 1 selling SLR camera.

The EOS-1Ds features the first ever full frame 35mm CMOS sensor with 11.1 million effective pixels. The EOS-1Ds capture astounding detail & colour, almost doubling the resolution ordinarily considered state of the art for a digital SLR camera in the world today.*

Default Full Press Release

Press Release was deleted from Canon Europa site, but here it is:

Witness the launch of Canon Imaging Gateway an online digital imaging service for consumers Canon takes its large format printers to high street print shops to deliver fast, large-scale image reproduction


Canon celebrates 15 years of EOS with the launch of the EOS 1Ds - the world's highest resolution professional camera


Cologne, Germany – Canon Europe will use Photokina 2002 as the launch-pad for its latest innovative digital technologies designed to meet the demands of both the consumer imaging and professional print markets.


Forecasting a stunning 70% increase in production of digital still cameras, 2002 has already been an historic year for Canon Europe as both professionals and consumers fully embrace digital imaging.


Mr Hajime Tsuruoka, Canon Europe’s Chief Executive Officer and President, said: “Canon Europe is at the forefront of the digital revolution and we plan to remain there. Our strengths as an organisation lie in our implicit understanding of the digital process from start to finish. In addition, we are one of the only electronics companies that own and continue to develop innovative technologies for both the consumer and professional print markets and many of these products will be unveiled at this year’s Photokina show, one of the most important industry events in the Canon Europe calendar.”


Canon Consumer Imaging


Photokina marks the 15-year anniversary of EOS as a brand. Canon is announcing two new EOS models at the show - the world's highest resolution Pro-camera, the EOS 1Ds and the EOS 300V, which is predicted to become the world’s number 1 selling SLR camera.


The EOS-1Ds features the first ever full frame 35mm CMOS sensor with 11.1 million effective pixels. The EOS-1Ds capture astounding detail & colour, almost doubling the resolution ordinarily considered state of the art for a digital SLR camera in the world today.*


Also new this year are three digital still cameras, all featuring the new high performance DIGital Imaging Core (DIGIC) processor. One of the trio, the Digital IXUS v³, is claiming the position as the world’s smallest 3.2 Megapixel digital camera with optical zoom and LCD monitor.*


Along with the new additions to the camera line up, Canon is announcing Canon Imaging Gateway (CIG), a digital imaging web site, which Canon Europe sees as the vital missing link in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) by creating a one-on-one communication channel to consumer users.


The online solution will allow users to download updates for their digital cameras, in much the same way that mobile phone users download personalised ring-tones. CIG also offers other services online, such as photo albums, photo-printing.


Canon Business Solutions


Canon, recently named one of the world’s ‘Innovation Elite’ by Reuters Business Insight, will also announce the decision by its Business Solutions division to target high-street mini labs with its new range of industry-leading, large format printing devices.


On stand at the show, Canon will be demonstrating how large format devices, such as the W2200 and W7250, will offer the photographic and photo finishing markets innovative solutions to reproduce digital images in poster size, with speed and ease.


Accessible, easy to use, large format Canon printers will be installed in high street photo labs, a move that the market leaders see as a natural progression in the digital revolution. Consumers will be able to turn images from a digital camera, CD, floppy disk, print or negative into large scale versions of their images within an hour, at a considerably lower price than traditional photographic enlargements solutions currently on the market.

I read somewhere that a camera called EOS D60 is actually in production and being shipped, but after checking on several forums, this also turns out to be rumor

You know how the rumours fly just before a major show but hey, maybe that D60 will become a reality some day
