EOS Bodies / Canon Cinema EOS C700x Rumor a Fake
« on: February 26, 2015, 11:20:24 AM »
A rumor showing a Canon Cinema EOS C700x starting popping up around the web and in our inbox yesterday. We have confirmed our initial suspicions that this is a fake.

The camera in the image is the C500 PL mount with some “work” done to fit the larger 34mm sensor and a longer base to fit the “X”, which in itself makes no sense. We’re also told that most PL lenses wouldn’t work with a 34mm wide sensor.

We have confirmed that the EOS C300 Mark II and EOS C500 Mark II will be coming to NAB 2015 in April. We have not heard of any other “Cinema EOS” branded products coming for the show, but that could change.

Lenses / Review: Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD
« on: February 24, 2015, 12:43:39 PM »
Dustin Abbott has completed his review of the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens. This is a brand new fast wide angle lens for full frame cameras from Tamron. I have yet to shoot with this lens, but it’s aggressively priced and looks to be a stellar performer.

From Dustin

“Consider me impressed. Tamron has brought a lot of goodness to bear here, and this lens is a serious competitor for the best in its class. Some will find the inability to use traditional filters a deal-breaker, and I will confess this is my primary disappointment. I fully suspect that aftermarket square filter systems will fill that void, just as they have for the Nikkor and the Samyang/Rokinon 14mm f/2.8. The size will also be a concern for those who are counting the ounces for backpacking and/or travel. But if neither of those things spoil your interest, you will find a lens that is, in my mind, now the most compelling option available if you own a Canon and still very intriguing if you own a Nikon.” Read the full review

EOS Bodies / Patent: Improved EF to EF-M Adaptor
« on: February 24, 2015, 07:48:39 AM »
A new patent for an EF to EF-M adaptor has appeared. It looks like the new adaptor will have improved AF speed with EF lenses mounted. As many of you know, the current adaptor is pretty sluggish in that regard.

The patent makes a point of saying there will be improved performance for video and liveview. Could the video improvement be for dual pixel AF? Could this patent be related to the GH4 competitor we’ve been told would launch at NAB?

The patent details are after the break….

  • Image height Y = 13.66mm
  • Overall length of the lens 237.36mm
  • BF 54.00mm

Adapter installed

EOS Bodies - For Video / A Suggestion on the EOS-1D C Replacement
« on: February 23, 2015, 12:14:38 PM »
I missed this a few weeks ago, but over at Northlight, they posted that there would be an EOS 5D C instead of a direct EOS-1D C replacement. This is said to be due to lack of sales for the $12,000 (at launch) cinema DSLR.

From Northlight

we’re told that the ‘general purpose’ 5D4 will come along with 5D C specialist video DSLR. 1D C sales have not been good enough to get the return on development of a new version.

That idea may shed some light on what we posted yesterday in regards to a test camera that shoots 4K in a 5D sized body. I’ll say again, the source stressed that such a camera may not appear as a consumer product, just that it has been tested.

We will note that Canon has said themselves that they’re going to make more focused products in the DSLR space, and not worry about pleasing everyone with every camera.

EOS Bodies / Possible Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Spec Talk [CR2]
« on: February 22, 2015, 10:33:10 AM »
We’re told the following specifications are for a camera that may turn out to be the EOS 5D Mark IV, but for the moment it is just a test camera that may never get to market in this form. We’re expecting a replacement to the EOS 5D Mark III some time in the final quarter of 2015.

A camera currently being tested specifications

  • 18mp Full Frame CMOS
  • ISO 100-204,800
  • 61 AF Points (all crosstype)
  • 12fps
  • Dual CFast
  • 4K Video Capture

It was stressed that the above is NOT the EOS-1D X Mark II. There will be a quantum leap in fps, dynamic range and a bump in resolution for that camera. We’re told that there’s a possibility that a replacement to the EOS 5D Mark III could be called the EOS 5D X, but no final decision has been made on that.

I stress again that this is a reported test camera that may never come to market, and it is unknown how old this test camera is.
