EOS Bodies / Re: The Always Hidden Camera at the World Cup
« on: July 11, 2014, 05:01:28 AM »
No, no, it IS the 7D2. It's now official!

Nailed it!!!
Must check out the Canon Rumors source they quote, sounds like those guys are on the ball


if the rumour is repeated enough, it becomes confirmation of the rumour....


IMO you have no idea how much it is repeated already. That much that they can put it into the constitution already

EOS Bodies / Re: 1Dx mark II or 7D mark II

Sorry about your premature post problem...

I don't think the picture points to much at all, but it's more robust than most of the stuff that Craig and myself get sent ;-)

:-))))

Actually if I had nailed it down with some bizarre new button I would have posted right away.

But since failed to find on the first game any huge-easy-to-distinct-from-half-a-soccer-field modification on any body presented there, I am afraid I had no other option except to prematurely post it just to express my disbelief what a joke of a picture NL has posted.

IMO anyone would share my opinion that for a rumor site NL is quite respectable. But this last picture that was posted is shared all over th3 intern3t. And it is quite, quite away from even logical explanation to '"you know this rain-coated camera could be the new 7D M2 that everyone KNOWS that it will be on the WC 2014.... or maybe it is not."

Even worse: CR reposts it.

EOS Bodies / 1Dx mark II or 7D mark II
« on: July 04, 2014, 04:28:25 PM »
I was going to wait until the end of the World Cup. Wanted to check the last games. Both semi- and finals.  But that stupid NL article made me post it prematurely:



If I had a prototype I would NEVER put it under a stupid WHITE raincoat next to... none

NL  had to get some more visitors and ergo more referral links.... So why not speculate on an easily to spot white spot... And check how convinient to put it just the rumored combination for the Photokina....

Am I the only one that believes that the 1Dx mark II or whatever it will be called can be already in the wild? And for the sake Never ever put it under white so eye-candy coat...

ON the other hand prototypes are known to be lacking a brand/vendor plate.

This is the very first game of the World Cup 2014. This frame is available on the HD game version.

Feel free to speculate ;-)

EOS Bodies / 7D Mark II: Could it be with a FOVEON?
« on: June 26, 2014, 07:29:48 PM »
Based on  that I really begin to wonder if under new sensor the talk is actually about FOVEON....

Guys, why did you forgot the
stress and endurance Small | Large
tests? I am talking about the EOS pro equipment.

They must have:
- components tests (remember the 100k shutter guarantee? That means at least 120k successful on some 98% of all tested ones).
- weather & environment tests...
- Body and main circuits imperfections (remember the stupid 5Dm3 light leaks).

When are all those tests taking place?

EOS Bodies / World Cup HD stills for test bodies?
« on: June 12, 2014, 05:12:08 PM »
Hi everyone,

is there anyone recording the World Cup in HD? I am seeing tons of players' closeups. There are many Canon bodies (hard to miss with the white lenses and logo).

I bet at least one of those bodies are the next 1Dx. For 5/7Ds it would be hard to see, but who knows...  ::)

EOS Bodies / Re: Can Canon deliver a FF sensor that is class leading?
« on: June 05, 2014, 10:48:54 AM »

Your confusing amplifier with ADC. The amplifiers are per-pixel in a CMOS sensor, but the ADC is a separate unit. CCD sensors push everything off-die, including the amplifier.
Yes, indeed! You are right.

?..Testing anything but the 'entire chain' would have no real-world utility (except fueling speculation about what might or might not be possible at some unspecified future time).
I agree. Testing without pushing to the limits is no testing. By definition the CMOS includes the ADC. No matter on or off die. And usually there are more than one on the chain serial-wise. Additionally the dark current is important too.

Have you ever tried to shoot video with the 550d? AFAIK its CMOS gets heated, which makes me believe that there still must be some kind of  ADC to each pixel.

EOS Bodies / Re: New Sensor Technology Coming From Canon? [CR1]
« on: April 29, 2014, 03:56:42 PM »
Currently a bunch of innovations on CIS market. Curved micro-lenses version, a few modified BSI versions,  CMOS with ir, film coated, No colour filtered and of course let us NOT forget FOVEON....

As for the wavers - it is about time. According to ChipWorks - this is SUPPOSED to be CANON's next step. For some time they already have the tech... the implementation so far was not available....

Technical Support / Re: Magic Lantern Issue/Question
« on: March 01, 2014, 05:25:12 PM »
There is... in 12 hours I will provide link... curently not on my computer... there are very few features implemented. You can forget about dual iso or similiar ;)


UPDATE:

 I had a brief discussion with a forum mate from there. Obviously the so called build 108 is not OK.

40D OS is VxWorks. Newer bodies (aside from 1 Dx, for which I don't know) use (Canon internally developed) DryOS. Magic Lantern enhancement uses DryOS ONLY:-(

Check this topic and see for yourself the status of development (in case you haven't alredy done that)

As for all done so far here is a download site. I am sorry for misleading you. I thought that it was already working. :-((((

Have fun!

EOS Bodies / Re: Hardware Hack for EOS Cameras Coming Soon? [CR1]
« on: February 28, 2014, 05:51:01 PM »
IMO the way this whole article has been written it deserves no more than CR0.

And it really sounds like if the author's nigerian cousins, that he hasn't seen for quite a long time, dropped him a letter with the new idea... ???

Additionally:

1/ the talk is about the motherboard and NOT about the sensor.
2/ I wonder what CANON has to say about in legal terms about unathourised tunning.

PS: I hate tablets

Most probable and IMO well expected move from Canon is to move out of cheap (under $200) cameras due to the ever increasing market share of the phone cameras.

According to digicame-info.com Fujifilm,Olympus, Panasonic, Casio are also considering that.

As a trend below is an estimate of DSLR and DSC market shrinking with huge 15% in just 5 years:

EOS Bodies / Re: What's Next from Canon?
« on: February 19, 2014, 04:40:04 PM »
I might have been wrong about the wafer size change  :( Although according to one guy README the cost reduction is more a of a fuzz.
When I mentioned about the DPAF patent I was quite clear with patenting filling time... I mentioned it because for example now we can't be sure that the next 1dx won't be with foveon quatro remember that Canon has a patent? Fossum and his team would need 20 years perhaps.....
