Why would you need a TS macro? its a small subject - just move the camera to the new focus plane position.

Left handed or even one handed operation sounds like a chance for a novel battery grip, or maybe a smartphone app.
But if the market is big enough then perhaps - maybe a kickstarter project could guarantee the funding before committing to moulding the material for a full LH design reversed from RH. Would a 700D level SLR make it viable

Would the AF/MF lens switches need changing?

< 10 mins - will the website crash with our optimism?

It was explained several times in the thread, that obviously the timer is not adjusted for different time zones, but just New York
LOL - i wondered why it said 00:00:00 for so long.

A wacky fisheye at 10mm and a wide angle zoom to 50mm - If the price is right this could be rather fun. Will it be a full round fisheye?

Could the IR sensor be for focusing in the dark?

is the extra 3200 from 12800 to give 16000 really just a third of a stop improvement?

AA filter on sensor?

Were they not limited to a wafer resolution, have they now hot a finer resolution fab. Can they offer more MP's with this.
Or better still - curve the sensors?

Would it not be a DO lens and so smaller?

F4-5.6 seems quite small now days.

Canon need an AF tech that works well with the mirror up. This will enable better video, liveview and mirrorless designs including facilitating an EVF screen.

Hello, I am new to this Forum. I came across an interesting webpage in which a 70D is shown. What do you think?
Cool, if it come with a 50mm f1.4 lens thats nice too :)  Thanks for posting.

"continue to spend resources on it, tells us there is definitely a good application for the technology"

But is a dSLR what they are thinking of?

Its also 2 years since it was filed, why does publishing it make it anything more than visible for IPR use?

Yes i love the idea, but its just an idea.

" the source alluded to it being a camera body" just some neat tech feature in the new EOS M perhaps.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D, DIGIC 6 & 18mp Sensors

With the 5D3 and the 6D as the better level cameras just out, it would be Odd (though nice) for the 70D's new sensor to jump much beyond that performance. If there was a significant jump in sensor tech then i'd expect the 1D to get a refresh first/at the same time.  Sadly i most think the new sensor will mostly be a Video improvement.

Lets not forget  they need to save something interesting for the 7D mk2.
 So unless the 60D was the end of the range with everything stepping down to the 100D (like the 1000D tried),

This 70D will either be a video enhancement or a 7Dmk2 to add to the prosumer 5/6/7D group.
