Is a 46mp Canon EOS-1 on the Way? [CR1]
« on: September 10, 2012, 09:14:57 AM »
Development Announcement?
I’m told it’s possible we’ll see an “in development” announcement sometime in 2012 for a large megapixel DSLR  from Canon. I have heard both 39mp and 46mp prototype(s) are out in the field.

In development announcements seem to be getting more popular with Canon and their high end products. As we’ve seen from the EOS-1D C and EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4X, it seems to allow them a lot of latitude in testing and helps with public relations. It also stops sites like this speculating on arrival of new products. :)

An EOS-1?  When are they going to stop building these bodies with the grip permanently built-in?  I'll never, ever buy one until they go back to how the 1V was built with a high-end removable grip.

If it looks like any of the 1-series digitals, I'm not interested.

If it's in the 1-series, it will probably be twice the price of the D800, right? That's not really a direct competitor. I wonder when/if they'll release a comperable camera. A 5D3 with 46mp.

It doesn't sound to be a cheap FF. Hope Canon will announce first a cheap FF, a sort of 5DIIn, then it can even produce 100mp camera, there will allways be someone interested in, but for my needs it is better a cheap FF... otherway i'll get a 5DII.

Never, I hope. 

Put a removable grip on a body. Hold the body in one hand, the grip in the other. Move your hands. Feel the flex?  Now...put an AS-type plate or L-bracket  on the bottom of the grip, mount it on a solid tripod. That flex translates to vibration, and vibration costs sharpness.  Oh, just remove the grip? Very inconvenient, for me.

Love the integrated grip of the digital 1-series bodies!

They could make it at least easily removable, w/o involving the battery compartment and perhaps using dedicated clamps.
But a 1series body has its strong poins...
And don't skimp on the metering, sync speed and all that analog stuff that seperates 1Dx and 5D3!

Don´t expect a high megapixel camera (FF) from Canon in the price range of a D800E.

+1
6000€+ for this Camera, when you can get an D800 for 2600€???
In my opinion, if Canon does not launch an cheaper model around 2500-3000€ with 35+MP, they will loose a lot of photographers.

Are they 'losing a lot of photographers' to the D800 now?   ::)

Soon, if they're smart, and charge $4500 for it. How many landscape and studio photographers need the ruggedness of a 1Dx body, especially if the alternative is buying two cameras with the same sensor but in a 5D3 body, for the same or lower total cost?

I think they will address the advanced amateur market first.  The 60D and the 7D are much in need of a refresh and as the 7D is 3 years old the regular product life cycle would mean there is something in the works.  As for the high MP camera here?  If true this is the answer to the Nikon D-800E.  Canon can sit and let Nikon take over the landscape and nature markets.   I think challenging the 800E is not something that can be done quickly so unless Canon had something in the works all along this may be announced as a work in progress.  What ever it is I'm sure I won't be bale to afford it buy I guess I will buy a lottery ticket.  One can dream

The Nikon D800 with it's 36MP sensor produces 75MB RAW files, so a 46MP sensor would result in files sizes of around 100 megabytes per shot, so a 1-2 second burst could fill 1 Gigabyte of your CF card! A longer series of rapid burst could theoretically fill an entire 16Gb memory card. Not to mention increased storage costs/problems.

I'd prefer a 24MP to 27MP cheaper FF body for now (so I could upgrade from a 7D)
