I got an phonecall from the Service center on Friday: The "mainboard" is broken. Fixing this will cost me 700-800€. Canon is not willed to repair this on warranty. I should try to get my money back from the parcel service.... >:( :o

I told the Service man, that I am definitively not willed to pay this, as they sent the camera to me (so they are the risk-owner). So, he hang up.... More to come.....

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: Price of 5Ds
« on: February 01, 2015, 03:57:20 AM »
In sony forums, they see the A7 successor around 2500-3000$. So, I guess, Canon will price it much higher, as they see the sony as an toy (words from Canon manager at Photokina). Maybe around 4000-4500$
But, on the other hand, the a7rII will have an superfast and accurate AF and IS an alternative to the 5Ds.

My son in law told me that Sony is not willed to compeed against the 5DIV, as this coming body will be something extraordinayry/exeptional/revolutionary like the 7D when it appeared on the market. But it will be very high priced.

UPDATE

I got some more tidbits about the specs (thanks). Here is the new specification list (lines in bold are the new specs):

    50.6MP full-size CMOS sensor (53MP total count)
    5DS R is without low-pass filter
    Magnesium alloy body
    Dust and water sealed
    Dual processor DIGIC6
    Regular sensitivity ISO 100-6400, expand to 12800
    Continuous shooting 5 frames / sec.
    High precision 61-point AF, 41 cross type
    EOS iTR AF
    150,000 pixel RGB + IR photometry sensor
    Added “fine detail” to the Picture Style
    1.3x and 1.6x crop shooting mode
    Customizable “Quick Control Screen”
    Time-lapse movie
    Anti-flicker
    Interval Timer
    Bulb timer
    No headphone terminal
    No DAF
    No HDMI output for video (clean out). Not to compete with 5D III other video features are same.

The source also stated that the sensor is made by Canon using a new CMOS manufacturing process. I rate the added specs as CW3. The new specs (if real) confirm that these are DSLRs not oriented to the videographers.

Just thought of something...
5DS (53 megapixel)=Nikon D810
5DIV = Nikon D750
6DII = Nikon D610

It's starting to make sense I think..thoughts?



Or not.

7DII = Nikon ??

7DII = Nikon D7200. To be released @ CP+.

Here are the rumored Nikon D7200 specifications:

    Expeed 4 processor
    MultiCAM 3500DX2 autofocus system

Canon's Q4 earnings report shows camera sales are down

The actual status of my 6D: It returned yestreday after almost 2 weeks. Camera works now basically. Changed the card-slot-board (if I have translated this right). But now, the main front wheel does not work. Sent it back again.... More to come

Argh, that's a good reason to have a backup camera. But on the bright side: They can hardly charge you again after sending back this camera as "repaired", so imho whatever should be the issue with the wheel should be on them.

The first repair was on warranty (free). As I told the service center, that it returned with an issue, they told me to send it to them again for free (an parcel service fetched the parcel)

I am very sorry, that I wrote not the exact process in my postings. I have removed the battery afterwards. I did everything that was written down in the manual.

I´ve tried to access the camera via USB, but it did not work.
One things I have recognised when I prepaired it for UPS: The batteries do get very warm.

The camera is now on the way to Canon

Much thanks for all replies!!!!!! I will write it in this forum, which error has occured.

Have you tried starting up the camera in a different mode? (e.g change from Av to C1).

This might help: http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/unbricking

thanks, does not work too. Tried it in every other mode.

It'd have to be a really awesome camera to make me spend more monies from my mk3. I mean no hold outs from canon. Built in RT, swappable focus screens, 4k video, new AF and metering from 7d2, DPAF, touch-screen,  all at the same mk3 release price of $3499.

+100 if 3499.... But I do more believe in 4500-5000

Thanks fot the tipps.

Question: At Sony rumors forum they wrote, that the next lenses for the coming high MP Sony body will have to move upwards in the resolution.
Do the existing Canon lenses have this higher resolution, or is the posting rubbish?

A big jump from 22 to 53MP. 4-5 fps are ok if landscape or studio orientated.
But which price will we have to pay for it?
I read an fb posting, that it will be between the 5DIII & 1DX. Nearer to the 1DX. I hope this was an "troll" posting.
But Canon will we proud of having the chance to milk us as much as they can ....

But - if payable - great news.

Much thanks!

I tried your tipps, but it did not work. Still the white point on the lower edge for one second. Fully charged battery, everything removed, fresh formatted card,....
And there was no moisture....

I phoned with the Canon support (2 min before closing), and the employee told me to send it to the German Canon service departement. He thinks the main processor is broken - maybe as an result of the fw-upgrade (then there will be NO warranty).  :-[
