PowerShot Cameras / Re: August 23 is Announcement Day [CR3]

Perfectly normal. Powershot are usually announced before DSLR. What worries me most is we don't have any strong rumors about DSLR that should be announced soon after. Nikon people don't have a clue also about their new DSLR.

If the sensor is 32MP at FF, cropping the image electronically would yield just less than 19MP at 1.3 crop, and 12.5MP at 1.6 crop.

So? 19mp with a 1.3 crop is better than the current 1DIV resolution. Double Digic V would most probably be able to handle this at 10 fps. You get to trade speed for resolution depending of the job to complete.

It's not hard to understand. You don't need 3 sensors...

Option 1 : Sensor start at 32mp and 5fps. If you want to sacrifice resolution for speed you pixel-bind, like shooting sRAW files and output 12mp images with 10fps.

Option 2 : Sensor also start with 32mp and 5fps. If you want more speed you read only a part of the sensor (think APS-C, 1.6x crop) in the center. Since you have less resolution you can go faster.

The Option 2 technology is not something Canon has shown to be possible yet. But Option 1 is. Canon produce sRAW images by binding pixel and also does create 1080p video frame at 30fps using the complete sensor. So Canon CAN read a full sensor faster when using lower resolution.

BS. In terms of density, The equivalent of a 32Mpx full frame sensor is around:

- 19Mpx for an APS-H
- 13Mpx for an APSC-C

I would love that much better than being stuck with max 5fps or 10fps.

This will not happen if for one reason it is exactly what I would like. Merge both 1D and 1Ds and price it just a bit higher than the current 1D.

But, I continue wishing hard this is what will be announced in the next month.

Please... I just hope that all this new technology will make it to the next 1D(s)... When the 7D as announce it has new stuff like better metering, LCD viewfinder, etc... None of which has made it in the 1DIV.

Why doesn't Canon take some calculated risk with it's flagship cameras? The 1DII, 1DIII and 1DIV are all the same except for ISO, resolution and LCD screen size upgrade...
