Title: 2013 Predictions for Canon EOS Products
Post by: Canon Rumors on February 19, 2013, 05:40:44 PM

From Nippon Magazine

A Japanese magazine has posted their predictions as to what they think Canon will be releasing in 2013. The list falls in line with most things we’ve heard, except for the last camera mentioned.



The first four on the list are a lock to be coming in 2013, and the timing looks correct as well. As for the October announcement, I’ve heard nothing regards to that. I was told by a great source that Canon would be releasing 3 DSLRs and 1 EOS M body in 2013. However, that does leave a loophole for an “announcement” of another body, even if it isn’t available for purchase until 2014.

Oh no!!! Buy the 7Dii or wait for the 3d?

If the 3D is the bigMP camera, then those two are so divergent you might actually want BOTH! :P

The 3D will have eye-controlled focus and a blink-activated shutter. You heard it here first.   :P

Anyone know what Canon camera is in this below linked picture?  Never seen one with the red piece by the hotshoe.   

http://500px.com/photo/26318243 (http://500px.com/photo/26318243)

Update:Even more suspicious is the Canon logo has been removed, this has a pop-up flash and looks to be in new condition.  Can't place the lens either the more I look at this - size wise looks like the 85mm 1.2 but the bulge appears different by the camera mount from the current 85,1.2???

Dont know but that red piece somehow makes the body look bad@$$/Evil. Could that red panel indicate pro-line series/bodies like the rings are for their L series lenses? Or it could very well be modified by the user who knows :P

Lens is the 50L. Camera looks like a 7D.  If it was a new body, it would have the locking mode dial. The 7D has a separate piece of plastic where that red piece is, would be one click with the PS magic wand and a color change.

You joke, but I like the eye controlled focus of my Elan 7e. I don't know if the technology is accurate enough to select and individual AF point in a 61pt grid, but if it's close it would be awesome.

Yes, if not this next cycle, definitely soon after eye-controlled AF will make its appearance in the higher end bodies. Conceptually, it is an old technology for canon, but will need tweaking for the modern AF systems. Very doable.

I don't want to falsely accuse someone, but does anyone else think there is something weird going on with this picture? The monk's left hand isn't supporting the camera and doesn't appear to be anywhere near the camera actually. I can't imagine why anyone would Photoshop the camera in and maybe it's just my imagination, but something doesn't look right.

I do not think it is 7d. And maybe the locked dial is not there as this would be a pre-production model and the lock will come in once actual production starts.

Supporting what others have said - 7D, if you look through this guys gallery he has loads of photos snapped with a 7D.

Definitely a gripped 7D.  There's no lock button on the mode wheel (as mentioned), and the top LCD function buttons are rounded, without the 5Dm3 style nipple on the right most button.  So clearly an "older" (not pre-production) model.  The only difference between the camera in the picture and a factory 7D is the red strip at the top, which is either photoshopped or an after market addition.  No further conjecture necessary.

As for me, I'm really excited for the 70D to come out. I was relatively surprised to see it appear as potentially coming out, but I suppose Canon would want to appeal to the "soccer moms" and such as little leauge soccer and baseball seasons are starting up. The features I'm most excited about that would potentially appear on this camera are an improved AF system and improved hish ISO performance. After all, if the 7D MkII is supposed more of a professional camera somewhere in the upper $2K range, then the 70D needs to somehow fill the gap without driving the price up too high. I wonder how they're going to do that....

With the D7100 showcasing a 24MP sensor with no optical low-pass filter, it's going to kind of tough for Canon to trot out a 70D with the same old 18 MP sensor one more time.   Even if it does have GPS and wi-fi.   Just sayin'....

Yes the 3D will have that plus 61pt AF, advanced AI Servo tracking, 120MP and 0.1fps and low ISO DR within a stop of as good as the 5D2

7D2 will have the latest Rebel AF, 24MP and 10fps and high low ISO DR equal to exmor

The EOS Me is named as such because it's actually runs on windows Me.  Microsoft is going to run Nikon off the road like they did with the iPod . . . and the iPad/Android Tablets . . . and phones.

The specs of the D7100 definitely don't make me regret going Canon in the first place. With bird photography, the lack of an AA filter would be a disaster. I am also firmly of the belief that the softness with high density Canon sensors like the 18mp is not the fault of Canon's AA filters. When I slap on any one of the Mark II telephotos, all the softness I've experienced with older L-series lenses disappears. The IQ with the newer lenses is unbelievably sharp and clear, which makes me believe the notions of "overly aggressive" AA filters in Canon gear are overblown, and based on a misunderstanding of where that softness comes from.

I have no complaints whatsoever about the IQ when using the newest generation of Canon lenses (although honestly, I don't quite include my EF 16-35 f/2.8 L II in that group...its MTF is good, but not as good as the lenses released over the last couple of years, and I do experience some softness with that lens on my 7D.) I actually hope Canon keeps the AA filters a part of their lineup, and if they ever decide to create a camera without one, that they always make it an OPTIONAL body subtype.

Of course, Nikon currently isn't going through and releasing significantly improved versions of their entire lens lineup....and if they stay that course, if their future generations of cameras start outresolving the lenses enough, they won't ever actually need an AA filter...the lens will tackle the softening of high frequency detail instead.

I actually hope Canon keeps the AA filters a part of their lineup, and if they ever decide to create a camera without one, that they always make it an OPTIONAL body subtype.

Canon gave DPP that IPSF tool to deal with the negative aspects of the AA filter and some lens errors - they gain less then Nikon from leaving the filter out. Not that the difference is that large, at least once you're out of the lab.
I'd guess the filter stays, esp. with Canons affinity to video and the problem off removing artefacts from that many pictures. Thats unless common sense has to take a backseat because of marketing decisions.

You can't really remove moire in post. You can try, but the only way to really do it is blur the detail by a significant degree in those areas. When properly done, the use of an AA filter INCREASES your ability to resolve fine detail usefully. There are some forms of photography where having no AA filter is great, and rarely if ever leaves you with the need to clean up or soften areas of your photos in post...a lot of (but not all) landscape photography is like this. However the cases where aliasing and moire present are quite considerable. Even assuming you have excellent tools in post to deal with them, it is just extra work that an AA filter does for you. And that extra work can be costly even if you are not dealing with video, and for the kind of stuff I shoot, I'd experience both moire and aliasing all too frequently.

As I mentioned before...given my experience with the 7D and a number of Canon's newest lenses, I completely disagree with the notion that the AA filter is too strong. With a good lens, sharpness and detail are top notch, not a hint of softness to be found...and neither is there any aliasing or moire either. I'll happily keep my AA filter in lieu of having extra crap to deal with in post.

I'd imagine EOS Me stands for "Mirrorless / electric viewfinder" :P
If not, then beats Me.
