EOS Bodies / AE-1 Styled DSLR from Canon?
« on: September 17, 2014, 03:29:40 PM »
Maybe some don't, but I think many of us love the feel and process of using a film SLR. Rotating through the shutter speeds. Deciding to set and burn 160 ASA film at 100 for slight overexposure when shooting portraits. Being able to see all your camera's settings without having to look at an LCD. Nikon tried to appeal to this sentiment with their Df, but fell short and ended up with a messy hybrid. Fuji seems to be doing it right, and I've been eye-balling the X-T1, if only based on aesthetics. I want Canon to put out something similar. I'd love to see an AE-1 styled digital body with at least the specs below:

  • Full Frame (6d sensor maybe?)
  • Shutter Speed Dial
  • ISO Dial
  • Exposure Comp Dial
  • LP-E6 battery, if possible
  • PC Sync port
  • No pop-up flash
  • Replaceable focus screens

Who else is interested in this sort of Camera?

The samples look pretty good to me. Question is how where they processed. Corner sharpness & price are also unknowns at this point.

Sony A7s. Confirmed 12mp Full Frame sensor and 4k video means 1:1 pixel use (no artifact/binning issues, more accurate color, etc.). Low light should be damn impressive too. Full announcement coming this Sunday (4/6) at NAB.

And unlike the GH4, a metabones adapter already exists that allows aperture control and IS for EF glass on E mount bodies.

I hope Canon is paying attention, beyond discounting the 1D-C.
