1D Mark V Information [CR1]

1D Mark V Featureset Rumors
I received an email today outlining additional features of the upcoming 1D Mark V. Please note I do not yet have a [CR3] confirmation of a 1D Mark V being announced in August.

  • The 1D Mark V will have “built-in cropping”. You will be able to choose between full frame (32.4 mp), APS-H (27 mp) and APS-C (21 mp).
  • You can buy additional focusing screens to emulate cropping.
  • The fps are linked to the cropping factor. You can get 8.4 fps with APS-C and only 3.1 fps with full frame.
  • sRAW1 and sRAW2 is possible to speed up fps.
  • Burst mode will give you a max of 10.1 fps depending on the image size and buffer.
  • Expect some video tweaks.
  • RAW video was only enabled for the engineers.
  • Either a 24-70 II (no IS) or a 35 II will be announced with it.
CR’s Take
This is a BIG [CR1], rumor stuff is starting to heat up. I am going to post stuff that has at least ideas that are plausible.

5D Mark III, 1D Mark V & 1Ds Mark IV Tidbits

5D Mark III, 1D Mark V & 1Ds Mark IV Tidbits

Announcement(s) Soon
I’ll be posting more of the random stuff I get daily. Things are starting to heat up a bit as announcement season is nearly upon us.

Random Info:

  • Canon Australia has sent CPS management to Singapore for product training. [CR2]
  • Any Canon announcement will come after Nikon’s announcement on August 24, 2011. [CR2]
  • 5D Mark III’s are in the wild and an announcement is imminent [CR1]
  • 1D Mark IV’s are out of stock or hard to come by in certain countries. A retailer in New Zealand actually said they won’t be getting any more. [CR1]
  • 1Ds Mark IV resolution correction, I’m told it will actually be 36mp.
That’s it from today.

1Ds Mark IV/1D Mark V Spec List [CR1]

1Ds Mark IV/1D Mark V Spec List [CR1]

Numbers!
Spec lists have been few and far between for any upcoming DSLR, this is the first one I’ve seen in a while. The commenter didn’t know if this was going to be branded 1D or 1Ds.

Specifications:

  • 32mp CMOS (Full Frame)
  • Evolved 45 point AF system (current 1D4)
  • Dual DIGIC 5
  • CF & SD Slots
  • New Battery
  • 3,7,9 fps
  • ISO Range 50-102,400
  • Ergonomic Changes
  • 100% VF
  • 3.2″ LCD (Highest Resolution Ever)
  • Improved AF in LiveView
  • Unknown Movie Mode and specifications
  • Unknown if there will be a wireless flash commander
  • In camera software feature upgrades

I expect a lot of these in the next month or so.

Announcement Date?
I’ve heard 2 different dates so far. I do expect multiple announcements dates for PowerShot and EOS.

August 18, 2011. I don’t recall the last Canon announcement to happen on a Thursday. Most, if not all are on a Monday/Tuesday depending on where you are on the planet.

August 30, 2011. This would come after Nikon’s announcements.

I don’t see September 6, 2011 as a possibility due to the long September weekend.

1D Mark V [CR1]

1D Mark V [CR1]

No 1Ds, however……
I’m told a mid September announcement for a 1D Mark V. It will be a full frame high fps camera that will lead to the amalgamation of the 1Ds/1D line.

Availability for the camera will be at the end of October.

The camera will have a “digital cropping mode”.

CR’s Take
Lots of talk about this, I’ve yet to see anything definitive. Though it makes a lot of sense to me.
