Is Canon EOS-1S the Name? [CR1]
« on: October 06, 2012, 08:50:41 AM »

Lots of Megapixels

Received a suggestion today that the new big megapixel camera from Canon would be the Canon EOS-1S. There wasn’t much given in the way of specs, but it’s said to cost in the area of $9000 USD. This is definitely not sounding like a  Nikon D800 competitor.


There was also another mention of superior low ISO performance from the sensor. New technology will be introduced in this camera and will set the stage for sensor development over the next 2-3 years.


Everything coming in about the big megapixel camera is from new people, so pay attention to the [CR1] rating.

Please canon don't let me down now :) this is propably the 20th set of rumours for the 1DS III replacement.

(They said that the 1DX is 1DIV+1DSIII combined, and it is BUT it clearly was not a replacement for a 1D series studio camera)

looks like this price range will attract only a few, lesser price attracts more buyers, which ends up balancing profit margin, a balanced and optimised cost would attract more buyers from both sides, those who dont care about money and those who are on budget

If it comes to fruition it will be the Alpha for trickle down. 2015 would be the year for Canon.

Quite a pity Canon decided to released the 5d3/6d sensor with the 5d2 sensor tech while they obviously have something in the works that might come closer to Nikon ... but maybe the 1dx2, 5d4 and 6d2 releases are already in the pipeline.

That 1S costs a lot of booty. See what I did there?

The US$8-9,000 I believe.

The fact it is not a competitor to the D800 I believe.

EOS 1S, no. I think they will stick with go with 1D Xs or 1D XS.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

My thoughts exactly, that Pentax 645D looks even more tempting after this rumor.

I wonder what the final specs on this will be.  If you get superior DR to the 1DsIII, 46mp, and the usual 1D feature set (probably minus ultra high frame rates), this could be quite popular among the studio and landscape crowd.  MF quality, but still use your EOS lenses...nice.  And in a few years the trickle down stuff will make an awesome second body to my 5dMKIII.

Yep, 1DS III was $8000 at release and for the first few months.
1Ds III • 5D II • 50mm f/1.2L • 85mm f/1.2L • 24-70mm • 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II

Makes sense to me. Trying to be "the same as Nikon, but cheaper" is a losing strategy. This -- making the best full frame camera, and charging top dollar for it is a winning approach. If they come out with big megapixels and fix their low ISO noise issues, they have a winner.

Re why not get a medium format -- the short answer is versatility. They are counting on the all-rounder/jack of all trades winning in the long run.

For example, what if you want to use it at ISO 800 or higher ? What if you want to use it with a lens like the 70-300L or the 400mm f/2.8 ? What is the equivalent lens for medium format ? (and again with telephotos, consider the limitations on ISO, reach and aperture) What are the medium format equivalents of a 24-70mm /70-200mm wedding shooters kit ?

This camera isn't being brought to market to compete with the $3000 Nikon D800, it is being brought to market to compare with the $10000+ medium format digital backs/medium format digital cameras.
