sorry, may have overlooked it: but what does the "ITR AF" on the rumored spec list stand for?
Thanks

Thanks, rs!

does anyone know what "EV-2 support" is?

yes ... central sensor of phase AF-system will work down to light levels of minus 2 EV [@ ISO 100]

has nothing to do with (support for) an electronic viewfinder (EVF).

- AF 61 points (41 points cross type). EV-2 support.
- ITR AF

EOS-M / Re: EOS M3 24 MP Sensor?
« on: January 31, 2015, 04:11:22 PM »
we shall see. I think, the rumors are not unfounded. Of course it would be a major defeat for Canon having to buy Sony sensors for all their  new cameras ... 5DS, 5DS R, D750/D760, EOS-M3 ... but that does not bother me.
All I want are the best possible cameras to take my EF, EF-S and EF-M lenses natively. 

It is totally irrelevant to me and to my photography, whether Canon is able to produce competitve sensors themselves or not ... as long as they put fully competitrive senors into their cameras. Even if they are sourced from Sony.  :)

Keep in mind that Canon has different crop factor. If it has 24Mpx usable, it won´t be THAT AX000 sensor from Sony. Fingers crossed for whatever might come...

If a Sony A6000 sensor would be stuck into a Canon EOS M/M2 body and mounted at the correct Canon EOS-M/EF flange distance, it would still deliver every single one of its 24 megapixels. And the EF-M lenses would work perfectly well serving up the incoming photons.  ;D

I expect it to have the same 24 MP sensor as the new rebel 750D/760D ... and I would woish it is either
A) a game-changing Canon 24 MP dual pixel sensor with class leading sensor and AF performance
OR
B) the same 24 MP sensor + AF system as in the Sony A6000 or the upcoming Sony A7000

Hopefully it will have at least 24Mpx AA filter-less sensor. So it will troll all these Sony´s and Fuji´s for price/resolution ratio. My 22mm, 11-22mm, 50mm and 100mm lenses are idling and waiting!

Adding 2nd curtain sync to a wireless remote flash protocol must be really easy. Even Nikon can do it ... for many years now. Even with old-style optical triggering. I am convinced, some ML guys could do it within very short time ... if Canon gave them proper access to the current wireless ETTL source code and fully specs for the hardware involved (ST-E3-RT and 600EX-RT)

At a price point of USD/€ 799 I do expect a built-in EVF - left top corner on thee backside please [rangefinder style]. 
Just like a Sony A6000 [or upcoming A7000]. Plus fully competitive sensor, fully competitive AF system, WiFi built-in, NFC built in, GPS built in, RT-commander built in.
I would gladly have GPS and NFC left out if it meant keeping the side down. I would also be okay with an add on EVF for the same reason, though we have seen other manufactures keep their cameras small and still include built in EVFs.

I would be perfectly OK with a size like Sony A6000 including viewfinder. Those radio-chips Wifi, GPS, NFC, Bluetooth, RT ... can be built really really tiny, by the way. All of them together can be fitted on a thumbnail-sized PCB - as in any smartphone. Antennas will fit around the LCD-frame. No size issue whatsoever. But an energy management challenge ... therefore all of these radio-modules should be easily user switchable - plus one touch screen symbol "flight mode" .. as on any smartphone.. Everything is invented already.

Moving to A6000 size would also allow the EOS M3 to use a regular capacity LP-E6N battery with 12+ Watthours of juice. That should give it around 500 shot  capability.

I'd really love to have a chat with the EOS-M engineers/design team and afterwards go to bat with that old fart Canon Imaging Division Head ... Masado Maeda.  ;D

Exactly!!!

Yes, but not exactly what you said in the first place. 

I wouldn't mind remote control over 2nd curtain, even more I'd like remote control over the flash head zoom setting.

Yes! BOTH are overdue. It is unacceptable that Canon did not updgrade their wireless ETTL-protocol at the same time they switched from optical triggering to radio triggering. It really is only a software/firmware topic ... if Canon is not able or "innovative" enouh to figure it out themselves, they should just ask a few ML programmers over, give them access to the source code and it would be fixed in a one-night session ... at little cost .. coffee plus a few beers maybe ... and a couple free ST-E3's and 600EX-RTs.  :) :P

799 USD/€ is more than enough dough to finally come up with a freakin' decent mass-market APS-C sensored MILC! Actually, I would like the EVF to be the first 4k resoultion EVF in any camera. Oterwise, I doi not want anything 4k in it.  ;)

The EOS-M failed at first, because greedy Canon wanted 899 for a sub-par, uncompetitive camera without any viewfinder, old sensor and dead-slow AF system (prior to FW update). There is no reason on earth, why a Canon EOS M should be one cent more expensive than a similar Rebel [SL 1] ... we'd actually be looking at 449 € then.

IF the Canon EOS M3 indeed comes with
* 24 MP APS-C Sony sensor ... as in A6000 (or even upcoming A7000)
* plus further improved AF system (Mk. III) from Sony A6000 (or A7000) 
* plus EVF (as in Sony A6000 or upcoming A7000)
* at a price not higher than Sony A6000 (or A7000) and available as "body only, w/o kit lens"
I will pre-order on Day 1. 8)

"M3 will be announced shortly, but no info re. specs available yet" - is also contained in the latest rumor re. Canon 5DS and 5DSR -> http://digicame-info.com/2015/01/eos-5ds-eos-5ds-r.html

Then, was also confirmed that the EOS M3 will be announced. Specs of EOS M3 does not know for now.

the "gold lettering" shown on the photo at http://digicame-info.com/2015/01/eos-5ds-eos-5ds-r.html also looks somewhat strange to me. But Maybe it is reserved for the japanese/asian version of the 5Ds. :-)

Native ISO range of 100-6400 (only) also sounds "weird".

But - it is a rumor, no announcement.  ;D

Some people (few) really need 4K. ::) But a huge number of people want to 4K to not feel inferior to have lower resolution.  :-\

if I recall correctly, the argument was 4k capture is "useful" despite the current scaricity of 4k-capable viewing devices ... "to get better looking/downsampled HD/2k/1080p video"?

But I am certainly the last person to comment on video. Never captured one. But my next PC monitor will be 4k (minimum) and my next TV set as well.
