thx astrocrab. now you know well how much I am in tech. so, I understand that sensors aren't the same as in film days. 100 ASA, 400 ASA...is that just a question of sensor tech design then? any link where can do an indepth read on that. would be very welcomed!

why only 51200 ISO while 1DX has 204800? i can't believe their sensosr has 2 steps difference in sensivity.

reading your forum name I  understand you are doing astrophotography. I would like to have a camera like that, but maybe they just differentiate it by cutting the high ISO down to 51200. If these are very usable I guess that's plenty for me as a low light "amatog". I guess they can do this by firmware, right?

The 5Diii would be just fine for me. Make it 2900 then.

But sensorwise, without too much of knowledge about it I'd keep to Keith's comment over at NL:
"I'm minded to think that if this were so, then Canon would use a derivative of the 18MP 1DX sensor rather than another new FF one (18/45 is likely less development effort than 18/22/45)"

well, time will tell. 51k ISO surely won't look bad. Dream cam for me.

As for the mega pixel monster, I think it is going get a smaller number in front of the D, it might be 2, 3 or 4. Since 3D might be misleading <snip>  my bets are on 4D. The smaller the number, the pricier. And if it really is the 4k cinema camera, 4D makes sense.

It's extremely unlikely that you'll see a camera called a 4D. The number 4 is strongly associated with death in many Asian cultures, including that of Japan. When I worked in Hong Kong, my hotel didn't have a 4th floor; the button panel in the elevator went 1-2-3-5-6[...] It's a lot like the number 13 in the US.

I suspect "3D" or maybe "1DSX" are more likely candidates. But does it really matter what Canon calls the camera? The photos I take with my 7D wouldn't look any worse (or better) if Canon instead named it the Barbie Super-Fun Photo Cam.


So, what about the 1DMkIV? I maybe wrong, but I do not consider it as very likely not to produce a 4D. Let's get serious: Does any worker at Canon refuse to work on a 4th every month?  8) Nothing intended, just don't take anything of that without a good grain of salt. I once experienced something here in switzerland. I bought some trousers. But the had to tailor it back to my leg length. So the seller said: I have just one question, Sir. Do you mind if we prepare them for the 13th? I said, no. And asked her back: I guess you don't deny your thirteenth salary at the end of year either (swiss workers receive a thirteenth salaray by xmas). So she was puzzled for a moment and stuttered: Of course not! You are absolutely right!  8)

Way to go. But would this include the new sensor technology they applied with the 1Dx? I am not a tech. Or is the new sensor beyond that price range, as a league of its own? Would be a great cam ISO wise! Price tag? +/- $ 3000?

<p><strong>Camera Bodies

</strong>Lots of speculation about the end of the month for a new camera body. However, there is nothing concrete and I’ve been told that things are going “back and forth” in regards to an announcement.</p>
<p>I will say I have heard there will be a very high megapixel camera some time in 2012, possibly in the 40mp range and it won’t be the “5D Mark III”.</p>
<p>The next announcement should be for an EOS body or two.</p>

If the high MP body is not the 5D Mark III  then maybe an allrounder 21-24 MP or the 5Dx as rumored earlier will hopefully materialize. 51K ISO would be okay for me. Well, maybe some very usable 102 K at H1 as well  8)


On 1001 noisy cameras we read what has been around for quite a while. But if NL put it again, maybe there is something to it...  CRguy: Any news? 8)

Rumors: Canon 5D Mark X coming February 28 for $2700

A new testable rumor at Kuaddro.com suggests that the Canon 5D Mark X will be announced around February 28 with a price of $2700. The rumor also rumorizes two lenses, one of which we saw announced last night, the other being a 35/1.4L. [the rumor was written before last night's Canon announcements] (via Foto Actualidad).

With the Nikon D800/D800E now officially announced, it will be interesting to see whether the 5DX has "accidental leaks" left and right so as to grab some of the headlines and discussions away from the D800.

They are referring to a Kuaddro.com post.
Maybe Kuaddro.com just shares what we've seen already via CR...  :-\

Canon Rumors guy was spot on with the 1Dx. I have no reason to think he's wrong about the 5DIII: 22 mp, Significantly improved autofocus, new battery grip with joystick.

Hopefully he's again. I am all for a mini 1Dx. Time will tell 8)

To truly respond to the D800, canon will have to make a 5D3 that will cannibalize the sales of the 1D X.

And we all know they do not want to do so.

Well played Nikon. Well played..

Exactly. Wish they'd do. We had it all here:

You are right, I guess it is the pic we've seen back in October...

There we read:
"A tipster recently sent me word that the Canon 5D Mark II would remain in Canon’s lineup in the near future.  However, another new DSLR model would be released soon (instead of a 5D Mark III) and would be a step-up from the 5D Mark II."
read more here, it has been discussed earlier at CR. A confirmation?

It seems like canon are getting ready for whatever body to come out, 1Dx, next 5D, ... I guess I've read some posts refering to this lens in relation to the 1Dx or the next 5D. So as the lenses are coming, new FF bodies can't be that far off from launch  8)

So, what will that be in terms of cost? I bought an 28/2.8 cheapo last year. So how close will the price tag get to the current 1.8?
