Canon tries to hide their mirrorless plans (but there are patents for mirrorless cameras)

Image of the Canon mirrorless patent found by Egami

Amateur Photographer just posted the text of an interview made with Rainer Fuehres from Canon: “The idea of the compact system camera is nothing to do with whether the camera has a mirror or not, but about creating a small and more portable system. If Canon does take part I hope we won’t introduce just a me-too product, but we’ll use the opportunity to do something different.”… “For Canon it would be about connectivity and providing high image quality in a small form. The manufacturers that have introduced micro Four Thirds and mirrorless systems have been those that have failed to make a success of their mainstream digital SLR offerings“.

But via Photorumors we found a Canon patent that discloses a possible future Canon mirrorless camera (Click here to see the patent at Egami). So Canon, what are you trying to hide?
