Third Party Manufacturers / New Foveon Sensor Patent by Sigma

Hi, just stumbled upon this.

What is the Canon equivalent to it in this field?


Looking forward to the late 2014 DSLR announcement(s) at least sensor tech wise. No need for a new cam. 5D3 is still great and kicking ;-)

Regards, Peter

regarding the link above

"The Canon EOS 6D may deliver lower resolution images (20mp vs 22mp), however this gives the 6D the benefit of lower noise at higher ISOs. "

NO, it means that Canon has a better way to deal with color noise and banding in 6D .

It is surprising that so many test pages do not understand the difference and think that less resolution has a positive effect on high iso

As an example, the 6D with higher resolution than 1DX has better signal/ noise ratio at 51000iso than the 1dx

Well 51k look quite good in JPEG, but I'd rather see the RAWs...expsoing to the right yields usable pics at ISO 16k on the 5D3 but I hope it will improve in upcoming bodies and I strongly hope Canon keep their MPs within the 22 MP range...

The 6D is a little cleaner at high ISO than the 1DX or the 5D3.  I have the latter 2 and a colleague has the 6D and I can tell a noticeable difference in the noise apparent with 6D images.  The 6D's 6400iso shots look very close to the 1DX at 4000iso.

That's an intresting statement. How is the 6D at ultra high ISO let'ts say 51k and 102k?

Here's one from yesterday evening. The brightly lit parts on the lower left side refer to skislope maintenance.

Time for Canon to pull out a 12-24 F/2.8 or F/4.0 ... Did some nightscapes recently and would have appreciated to go as wide as 12mm despite some vignetting...

I got tired of waiting for the 7DII to upgrade my 60D. So I just got the 5DIII. If the 7DII shoots 10fps, 61 point AF and has thr same sensor as the 70D. I would be tempted to get one. Because I cant afford the 1DX.

Well, I will keep on waiting... :)
Good luck with the 5D3!

The 5D3 is an excellent choice. I remember, one or two years into my old 30D I pondered on a 7D. But then I changed my mind to save up for FF, what was a 5D2 for me back then. Well, as I learned of the AF issues and the expectations towards its replacement I took the second mile and waited out for the 5D3 which I purchased in August 12. Still paid the 3.5k premium, but there ain't no regrets. Still in the learning curve...But it is more camera than I ever can handle...So if low light IQ is an issue, go 5D3 or 6D. I'd never go back again.

Hi, there was some movement on the "dark side", so what's next for us "Canonites"?

Ahh ha ha ha. It couldn't have been any other way.

Too bad about the 5D4 not having all the capabilities of a pro APS-C and mid range Full Frame all wrapped up in one.

You never know, maybe it'll still come true.

Bring it on. But how much would Canon ask?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Get a new camera every 150,000 pictures?

I take about 78,000 pictures every year with my T3i. I read that entry-level DSLRs can take about 150,000 pictures. I have had mine for about two years. So, it may have taken over 150,000 pictures. Should I sell it and get a new one now?

In my opinion, you only sell your camera if fixing its shutter is worth more or near than selling it or if you upgrade substantially (like from APS-C to full frame or from a rebel type AF to a better AF due to a requirement).  As I quote a Filipino photographer, Anthony Barlan,

"It’s not about how expensive your gear is, either. Good photographers could still take breath-taking pictures even with just their cell phones. Photography is about your creative use of your imagination, your ability to see a picture in your mind’s eye even before you capture it in your camera; it’s about your willingness to capture interesting subjects thru skills that you need to continuously work on. So always remember to “invest in your skills; not your gear”.

Some of his work here for inspiration...


This is a great quote by a higly gifted pro. And I'd say he's dead on with it. I allowed myself to post this to my fb, mentioning canonrumor.com as source.

Well, I purchased my 5D3 in August 2012. As I mostly do nightscapes (never did timelapses) I get home from my regional trips with less than 50 frames. Maybe this behaviour goes back to the film days, you had one roll of 36 or 24 slides and that was it. So one didn't fire off too many frames at a time. After about 16 month the shutter count of my device is at 8817. Last frame taken last night. At this rate it is good for at least another 15 years ;-) But I guess once a 5DV rolls out, I might use it less, hoping for better high ISO IQ (25k and 51k) in the overnext product cycle...till then I'll do my workouts with the finest camera I've ever had. Only better high ISOs in an upcoming model can prevent me from using it on a regular base. As I rarely take more than 200 pics during extreme shooting (holidays can get as high as 500 frames), it will last for quite some time.
