I'm suspicious about this. Firefox seems to thing it's a TIF file, when I click the link I get this dialogue box:


As a test I put one of my raw files on the web here to see what Firefox would say, and with that raw file http://www.chrislongley.com/IMG_7280.CR2 I get this:


Does this suggest the 'original' image of the purported 5D MkIII is really a TIF made to look like a raw file?

I just looked at the data inside the file and it certainly looks more like a CR2 file than a TIFF to me. No idea why Firefox is doing that.

Canons CR2 raw files are based on the tiff format - could this be it?

It must be Keith. I'm puzzled why Firefox would treat my .cr2 5DII file differently from a .cr2 1DsIII file but maybe just a Firefox bug.

Seems to be some specs from canon that are rumoured to be accurate if you google 5DMK3 but they dont appear to be too exciting compared to Nikons D800 61 point AF 22 million pixels duel card slots larger viewing area through lens whoopy doo Sad

Are these the definite specs of the camera or is it not confirmed that these are the specs?
