1Ds Mark IV & 5D Mark II Merry-Go-Round

1Ds Mark IV & 5D Mark II Merry-Go-Round

Which comes first………
The 1ds Mark IV or 5D Mark III?

Some people [NL] are being told the 1Ds Mark IV will arrive before the 5D Mark III based on known sources. I’ve been told the opposite by known sources. It’s still too early to say for sure it seems.

Lenses
As mentioned above, a few “interesting” lenses would be arriving with the 1Ds4/5d3. I’ve heard similar things in the last month or so.

I’ve been told there will be a “massively popular” lens as well as 2 more specialized lenses before the end of 2012.

Lens rumors have always been harder to nail down, as I think manufacturing plays a big roll in deciding when a lens can be announced and released.

For now, sit tight. The next announcement is going to be for a couple more PowerShots, then the good stuff.

5D Mark III & The Rest [CR2]

5D Mark III & The Rest [CR2]

The Next DSLR?
I’m told we’ll be seeing the 5D Mark III announced in October, with delivery shortly there after. I was not given any specs, which is probably a good sign.

We said originally, that the 5D Mark III would come before a 1Ds Mark IV or similar camera. Things appear to have come full circle and negate a lot of what I’ve been told this fall in regards to the 5D3.

Next Announcement Date?
We have the middle of September, possibly September 13-September 15 timeframe for a few more PowerShots. Some folks don’t read the site all that well and have posted other dates quoting us.

We should see the S95 & SX30 successors.

G13? We have heard absolutely nothing about a new G camera. It’s genrally on a 1 year product cycle, which would make it due for replacement any day now.

*BUSTED* 1D Mark V Spec List [CR1]

*BUSTED* 1D Mark V Spec List [CR1]

*Busted*
Another spec list torn apart by the community. The crop factors are off to a lot of people. APS-C isn’t 1/1.6.

Received 8 spec lists today! I expect 1.6x more tomorrow.

1D Mark V
A new claimed spec list of the upcoming 1D Mark 5.

We’re still getting conflicting 1Ds Mark IV & 1D Mark V model names. I’m still not sure what the new flagship will be called.

  • Sensor: 36 x 24mm CMOS sensor
  • Processor: Dual DIGIC 5
  • A/D conversion: 14 bit
  • Image sizes: 32.4 mp, 16.2 mp, 8.1 mp @ 5, 3 fps
  • APS-H mode (1.3x) – 24.9 mp, 12.5 mp, 6.2 mp @ 8, 3 fps
  • APS-C mode (1.6x) – 20.3 mp, 10.1 mp, 5.1 mp @ 10, 3 fps
  • Movie Mode: 1920 x 1080 @ 29.97, 25, 23.976 fps
  • 1280 x 720 @ 59.94, 50 fps
  • 640 x 480 @ 59.94, 50 fps
  • APS-H mode (1.3x) – 1920 x 1080 @ 59.94, 50 fps
  • APS-C mode (1.6x) – 1280 x 720 @ 119,88, 100 fps
  • Viewfinder: Magnification: 0.76x, 100% frame coverage
  • APS-H viewfinder magnification zoom: 0.87x – 89% viewfinder crop
  • APS-C viewfinder magnification zoom: 1.0x – 82% viewfinder crop

Go on and discuss what you think. This is fairly inline with what we’ve heard previously.

1Ds Mark IV & 24-70 II in 2 Weeks?

1Ds Mark IV & 24-70 II in 2 Weeks?

New Stuff?
I received a couple of emails today saying both the 1Ds Mark IV and 24-70 would be arriving in two weeks. This will be before the IFA event in Berlin.

1Ds Mark IV
The 1Ds Mark IV briefly appeared on Canon’s official web site. You can check that out at Photography Bay.

Still Quiet
I have to admit, all is still pretty quiet on the rumor front. One person has suggested we may get up to 3 different announcement dates in 2011. One for PowerShot, one for a flagship DSLR  and another lens announcement.

There has been absolutely nothing saying a 5D Mark III would be announced in 2011. Still a 2012 Q1 product in a lot of peoples eyes.

Quiet at CR
I’ve been away for a few days making sure my marriage remains intact. :)

*UPDATE* This & That

*UPDATE* This & That

From Germany
I received a price list from a German dealer today, omitted on the price list was the 1Ds Mark III and 1D Mark IV. The dealer is a pro dealer.

5D Mark II Crazy Price
Best Buy dumping 5D Mark II’s for what appears to be below cost.

Canon Australia bug or more?
The 5D Mark II is listed twice on the Canon Australia web site, it wasn’t like this a little while ago. A placeholder or a mistake?

*UPDATE* It was pointed out to me that if you click the second 5D Mark II link, the URL says “6D” at the end. *thanks Mike*

Nothing else too crazy today.
