EOS Bodies / Re: Big Announcements Coming Next Week [CR3]
« on: Today at 06:11:22 AM »
I am not interested in a 50+ Mp camera. But any news = good news because it means something is going on.

So I guess no more than a year for 5DMkIV (similar Mp, higher DR, less Low and High ISO noise, just hoping... )

Now the new lens is interesting...

Plus one on that, although my 5DIII still rocks. Hope Canon remain with more or less the same MP count plus innovative sensor tech noise wise. I will keep to the 5DIII for quite some time anyway, but it will be good to know about any improvements high ISO IQ wise.

Lenses / Re: POLL: Which of these UWA options would you buy?

I have the 16-35 F/2.8 USM II

An 11-24 F/4.0 would be a nice lens, but Canon are asking way too much for a hobbyist like me. But, maybe sometime down the road a third party manufacturer like Sigma or Tamron comes up with a similar product, I mean a 12-24 update from Sigma with a permanent aperture like F/4.0 would be great. Or as Tamron just announced the 15-30 F/2.8, who knows what they have in their sleeve next...;-)

Just wonder, what they will do next, after the Canon 11-24 F/4.0 infos have leaked...Could they do an 11-24 at half of the Canon price?

Well, great news, but a big price tag for me as a purely hobbyist photographer. So, in the long run, the Sigma 12-24 F/4.5-5.6 will do. I'll go this route. As I only work at the low end, the additional .5 in aperture won't hurt that much. But the price tag is about 4 times lower, so this gives flight ticket money for a very nice trip or a low price fall vacaction along with my wife AND the siggy...;-)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Confirms Development of High Megapixel Camera

It makes no sense to replace the 5D3 with 52 MP body based on the 7D2 sensor. 

I would take the speculation that this will be a 5DIV with a massive dose of salt.

Going back to the original interview, Canon understands that there are two primary markets: Those who need high ISO sensitivity with excellent noise control (which Canon nailed with the current generation of full frame cameras) and those who want higher resolution (which Canon apparently did not feel was a sufficiently large market to place an immediate emphasis on, but they apparently now feel they need to compete in that market)

I am certain that the high resolution Canon full frame (5D HD?) will not be a direct replacement for the 5D III. This "5D HD" (high definition) may surface in 2015, with the 5D IV (or 5D High Sensitivity) version showing up sometime near the end of the year or more likely in 2016.

(As an aside: apparently the low ISO, high dynamic range market is such a small niche market that Canon doesn't see it as sufficiently large enough to warrant a major release at this time. However, I can certainly see a scenario where the 5D IV/High Sensitivity would see at least a modest boost in dynamic range)

I hope things will happen this way. But as mentioned here, maybe the 6DII will move up in the segment and kind of "replace" the 5Ds as the allround body, who knows. I hope it won't, or it would receive some enhanced features first. As my 5D3 is good for a few more years, it's the perfect gear for a thouroughly non commercial oriented amateur like me. I hardly sell some of my photographs. Enhanced low light capacity and IQ would be great by 2016, so there's time for savin' up or even skip the next body...happy new year to everyone!

Will the 6D move up to make room for the 5Dish high MP beast and serve as a revamped high sensitivity cheapo 5D?

well, it might be a very intresting phase from 2015 onward into 2016. Hope they do two 5D lines. High ISO allrounder and high pixel count studio beast...I'd be in for anything with better IQ in high ISO. Merry Christmas then...;-)

That's a gem of a photograph. So you're saying, you were browsing the jungle...alone?

Not this time, it was on a safari, but i have in the past and come across leopards and a tiger in the dark once...  Wild elephants on the roads are not uncommon, leopards and tigers too near the parks (or Mumbai where they roam the streets from time to time).



Okay. Thank you for the look behind the scene, then. That sounds very adventureous...;-)

The 5D3 is more camera than I ever need, but it really rocks. What I'd wish for a next version is a decent increase in high ISO IQ above ISO 12.8 k and 22 MP or not more than 24 MP.

I could think of a 22 MP 5DIV with 3200ish ISO 6400 and 12800ish ISO 25600, this would make some very usable ISO 51200. But I also know, this might remain wishful thinking.

EOS Bodies / Re: Poll: Most wanted new features for 5D Mark IV
« on: December 22, 2014, 02:20:47 PM »
FPS, focus system improvements in line with 7D2, increased buffer performance, better high ISO performance, AF during video, and faster flash sync would be nice.  All of these things are the incremental changes that one would expect with an upgrade that can leverage expected technological improvements.

One thing that I do NOT want in a 5D4 is higher pixel count.  22 megapixels is plenty.  I don't want to deal with RAW files bigger than 30 MB.  Instead, I'd rather see Canon introduce a sibling to the 5D3 and 1Dx with the high megapixel sensor.  Keep the 5D and 1D series in their current pixel count range to keep their low light and high speed buffer performance benefits.
+ tenthousand!

- SD card slot - not just faster, as fast as CF
- Better ISO performance in 4-10k range (I don't care after that, so far)
- Wi-fi implented in a way that'd enable me to sync camera to my working drive
- Focus peaking/trap focus would be nice
Better ISO performance in 40-10k range will affect the other ISO levels as well. Really hope Canon keep with 22 MP so, at least 1/2 stop better in high ISO might be possible. I am no expert in tech...

I would like them to keep the MP count either as it is or not higher than 24 MP, as the 5Ds are considered allrounders. Therefore I definitely would like to see a slightly enhanced IQ above ISO 25k. 1/2 or  3/4 stop better than my 5D3. Is that feasable? Even at 24 MP? Hope so. ;-)

Or will they trump up the 5D and make the 6DII the new lower MP cam?
