Canon is planning to hold a product launch press conference on March 22, 2013, and it’s letting various media outlets know by sending them slick black boxes with silver pens. Wait, what? Pens? Yup, and they’re not just your everyday pen: Canon’s invite pens contain a secret message in a manner worthy of a secret agent.
Canon is sending out the above invitation for a press event on July 23rd (translation, anyone?). This date is when the company’s first mirrorless camera(s) is expected to be unveiled. Here are the rumored specs of the new system: two cameras with G1 X-sized sensors offering 14 and 24 megapixels, EF compatibility using an adapter, EVF on at least one of the cameras, and 3-5 lenses initially. Mark your calendars — it’s coming.
