EOS Bodies / Re: WHAT DO YOU THINK THE NEW 5D ISO RANGE WILL BE?????

@wrack_of_lamb: thanks a lot for that! 12800 would be quite something. Looking forward to it then! Three days and counting...

@Mt Spokane being a non-anglo and non-tech I only get a faint idea concerning your insightful explanation. Could you please tell me what this means for the rumored high ISOs of the new 5D?

Up to which setting will the 30dB work for excellent quality? 6400? or does that mean 100-25600? sorry. I know it's gonna be a hard job for you but thanks in advance. or as I am currently shooting a 30D you might use the H 3200 as a reference in comparison to a new 5D. 1600 and good light is fine. 3200 is quite usable with fast glass 50 1.4 and wide open, exposing to the right. A type of digital robert frank "the americans" style ;-) which I like very much as I am veteran from the filmdays

Cheers, Pedro

more importantly what will the USEABLE iso range be...

i am always curious as to how people define "useable" iso. having shot with b&w film as high as iso 1600 pushed to 3200, i suspect my tolerance might be higher than others in this digital age.

I can second that. I used to shoot a Contax 139 Quartz back in the day (1982) using the Kodak Tri-X pushed to 3200 ASA...those were the days...

Looking forward to the new 5D while I don't hesitate to shoot my 30D at ISO 3200 using street lanterns as long as I can exposure to the right with 50/1.4 wide open. Compared to this quality 12800 or even 25600 will look great on the new cam... 8)

the rumored specs are everything I hoped for in a 5D Mark II successor.  I could shoot this camera for a very, very long time, and not worry at all about what comes after.

same with me. I will upgrade back to FF. Had a Contax back in the film days. Shooting a 30D for about 5 years as an amateur there will be plenty of camera to explore and to work at my learning curve with for a decade I guess... 8)

22 megapixels?

I don't buy it.

Talk of a high-megapixel D800 killer aside, why would Canon ever make two different kinds of full frame sensors? They never did in the past.

Speaking of the past.....  nobody anticipate the release of 5D back in 2005. the company strategy can change, .radically influenced by the market.

PS 5DMK2 was the best seller upper lvl camera that canon ever had.

I am more than happy if all these specs pan out. And I wouldn't say that there is no high MP chance...As Canon officials were talking about recently...you'll never know what next spring or fall has in store for you!

502
With these rumored specs, given the possibility of 1024 k it is a dream cam for me. Not being a pro, it will be "new"  enough for ages...as my preferencies are low light without flash. My current 30D does quite well up to 1600 or 3200 exposed well to the right. So not this year but maybe next fall I'll return to FF having shot a Contax 139 Quartz back in the day (1982).

Is the ISO range convergent with former posts: 100-25600 and 1042k as highest extension?

EOS Bodies / From NL: NDAs expiring on the 2nd of March
« on: February 21, 2012, 07:40:41 AM »
Over at NL we read:

"20th We've hearing of NDAs expiring on the 2nd of March.
Now we also hear of a 5D3 (and only a 5D3) spec for a launch on the 2nd
22MP, 6fps, 61 focus points (41 cross) same as 1DX system
100-25600 Basic ISO 1024k dots LCD display 3:2 wide (or 3.2" ?)
Best Video quality in a DSLR.
After several different suggestions pointing to the start of March I'm wondering if we will indeed get an announcement on the 2nd. Fridays are not a traditional day for announcements, but perhaps we will see a 5D3 celebrating 25 years of EOS?"

@picsfor: as there is at least one or two more, then maybe one of these will. Personally hoping for a baby 1Dx type of cam TBA soon...

This is the most sensible rumour about a 5D2 replacement that will also replace the 7D.

Improved weather sealing, fine. 1D4 AF - also fine - just so long as it's better than what is currently in use on the 5D2.

Those features couple with 22mp would certainly lead to a spec sheet they could pull in at the £2200 price range or less. It really would be nice if they could add that dual card slot as well.

As for reduction in price? Why would they? £2200 on release will soon drop to under £2k on the streets once demand has been met. A baby 1DX for under half the price of the 1DX will please a lot of 7D users and 5D2 users wanting to upgrade.

I can almost here the kerching of the cash registers as this camera flies out the door  8)

What if you were spot on?  8) by then the high MP body would be how much?

As low as that? 1600-1800? I doubt it following what was discussed earlier on this platform. If so: what about 2,2k for this body and 3k for the rumored second (46MP) cam? Although a member here mentioned that it is unlikely for Canon to adapt to Nikon's price tags. So: the 5Dx 3k and the 5Diii 3,6 k? I am not much into marketing. just my 2 cents then.

@dilbert: that would be great. thanks for clearing that up for me. so 51k would still be usable let's say for b/w. I am currently shooting a 30D and do not hesitate to shoot daring ISO 3200 as my max extension. 3200 looks quite well when properly exposed with some NR added to it. But as I am gearing towards a Robert Frank "The Americans" mode, it is absolutely perfect for me. So 25600 will be excellent as well for my preferencies 8)

  I personally doubt they'll be using the 1D4 system, they'd still have to redesign it from the ground up for a FF sensor anyway. I think it's much more likely that it will get a less robust version of the 1DXs 61 point. In that way they can increase the economy of scale by using essentially the same AF system in their entire FF line up.

good point.

Well, not trolling at all: what can be expected noise wise from an upcoming body, let's say if there is really an extension up to 102k as the rumored body in the CR3d post concerning an imminent announcement mentioned?

What are the other specs? Do they fit with the 22 MP model or the "chinese" 26 MP model from 7 month ago as mentioend in the prior CR3d post? Any update on specs welcome! Cheers, Pedro

Whith these changes in specs, will it gear more towards an allround cam at low MP? Given the rumors about 1DIV AF and weather sealing, is there a price tag towards 3k+ to be calculated?
