Every few weeks, we get told that Canon will be using a Sony sensor in the upcoming high resolution Canon DSLR. Today was another one of those days.
“Canon will buy sony sensors for the next full frame cameras. but they are more a joint venture from Canon and Sony. Sony will make them and they will have EXMOR technology, for Canon they will get the DualPixel AF. So it’s a patent exchange that helps both companies. Sony will still sell the sensors to Nikon, but only without the DualPixel technology. Sony has the capacity to produce two lines of these 53MP sensors.”
I have yet to hear this from someone I know, it’s all coming from new and unknown sources. Take this with a salt truck. Thankfully, we won’t have long to wait to find out if this is true.
We’re told the embargo/NDA expires on Friday, February 6, 2015 for these upcoming products. These products would line up with the CP+ show in Japan next month.
- The two high megapixel cameras, with and without an AA filter. Resolution is said to be 53mp (though the pixel count is not CR3)
- The EOS Rebel T6i/750D.
- EF 11-24 f/4L
- EOS M3 Camera
- Various PowerShot cameras
We weren’t given any specifications for any of the cameras, just that they’d be made public at the end of next week.
We don’t know the availability of the cameras, though we had heard March for the big megapixel bodies, which we reported as the announcement date. This could in fact be the availability date.
More to come…
The current mail-in rebate program from Canon USA ends this week and we’ve been told they are not going to be immediately extended.
