A thread has popped up on a forum talking about a 46mp pro Canon DSLR being launched in New York City in October for PhotoPlus. It’s also mentioned that the camera will cost in the range of $8000-$9000 USD. I have no idea if this is a troll or not, but it will surely appear other places so I might as well post it.
If the EF 11-24 f/4L is indeed real, then it makes sense to announce it with a full frame camera.
If it’s true, there will be more to come.
The first confirmation directly from Canon about a high megapixel camera has appeared in an interview with DC Watch. The interview was about the two latest ultra wide zoom lenses, the EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM and the EF 16-35 f/4L IS and what went into designing them.
Google Translated from interview: “I to higher pixel unnecessarily is the opposite, but there is also a feeling if there is a high-performance lens that matches the number of pixels (pixel pitch), to want to take a look at the descriptive power of the true. By super-wide-angle zoom image quality is good came out to the periphery, and we look forward to the advent of high-resolution model of the EOS.”
We were told previously that there would be 3 EOS cameras in 2014, and so far we have seen just one, the Rebel T5. There was also the white Rebel SL1 (i dont count this as a new camera). The next one will be the follow-up to the EOS 7D and the third one is still a mystery. It could be something as simple as a new Rebel, or perhaps something far more interesting.

A mention on Northlight about someone from Canon apparently visited a few studios in the New York City area recently with a “test” camera in an EOS-1D X body. Images had to be processed and viewed on a particular laptop and none of the images could be copied or kept.
The image files were very similar in size to the EOS 5D Mark III’s 22mp files, but exhibited “much” better colour accuracy and detail. This camera is supposedly for later this year or early next year.
Could this be a replacement to the EOS-1D X, or an introduction of a new camera such as the rumor favourite EOS 3D?
With Nikon officially announcing the D4S next week, we’re starting to see the usually unreliable mentions of Canon following suit with an announcement of their own. The latest being that Canon will announce a high end full frame DSLR some time in March.
We do not believe a camera above or replacing the EOS-1D X is on the immediate horizon, as we’ve seen a few small marketing campaigns for Canon’s flagship camera. Along with a feature adding firmware update that came out in January.
We’ve been told by a great source that Canon would announce 3 DSLRs in 2014. The first being the entry level DSLR that was announced last week. The replacement to the EOS 7D Mark II and a third camera that is currently unknown. There is always a chance of adding to the number of cameras in the way of a “development” announcement, but those are always hard to predict.
As always, whenever Nikon does something, there’s always an upturn of Canon speculation.
NAB is coming in April, so I would think Cinema EOS would get an announcement before the EOS line.
More to come.

Nikon’s extremely vague development announcement of the D4s body at CES 2014 has sparked the wrath of Canonites wondering when Canon is going to move beyond selfie technology based cameras.
Lets be clear first, Nikon hasn’t actually released any solid specs or descriptions of the technology in the new body.
We’re told by a longtime source that Canon is indeed still in the game and has some “groundbreaking” camera bodies coming in 2014. Canon will take a different approach at the Sochi games and have test bodies out there without the development announcement. Canon plans to make a “big splash” at the World Cup in Brazil in the spring.
An array of lenses an 3 prosumer/professional DSLR’s are coming in 2014. Along with a host of Cinema EOS products in April.
Patience appears to be the key for the Canon photographer….
