EOS Bodies / The 5D Mark III Megapixel Count? [CR2]
« on: January 20, 2012, 01:18:12 AM »
Less is more? The new Canon mantra? A long while ago, we had heard the next version of the 5D Mark III would sport a 30+ megapixel file. We’ve heard recently that the Nikon D800 would be announced with a 36mp sensor.

The latest I’ve heard about the 5D Mark III’s sensor, and it comes from multiple places. Is we’re going to see it remain in the neighbourhood of 21mp. I’ve been told both 21mp or 22mp from various people.

Announcement? The most consistent mention is March for an announcement. I think they’ll announce a 5D mark III type camera after the February 7, 2012  announcement of the Nikon D800.

4K EOS Camera The announced development of a 4K Canon EOS DSLR could make some specs that come out hard to decipher. I believe a high megapixel EOS body is coming. The question is whether it would be the 5D3 or the new 4K DSLR.

the EOS ELAN 7 also has the Eye AF

ELAN 7 is on my list to buy, haven't run into a near mint one yet.

I tried to look up eye control because I never heard of it, but wiki is down for another 25 minutes.  I guess I will learn about it then.

I'd lend you my EOS-3 if you were in town, great way to learn about it. It actually worked. I really need to buy some rolls of film and use that camera again.

EOS Bodies / 5D Mark III Information [CR1]
« on: January 18, 2012, 10:24:15 PM »
Minimal Specs Two communications came in tonight about 5D Mark III sightings in an Asian nation. One mentioned the 5D Mark III getting GPS related certification, no mention of what that certification was called. It was also said the camera doesn’t have a high number of autofocus points compared to the 7D or 1D series bodies.

The second communication talked about a prototype having eye control autofocus. This sort of rumour hasn’t appeared for a long time, but lots of people have fond memories of the eye controlled AF of the EOS-3. There was also a mention of the camera being capable of 5fps.

Summary of 5D Mark III features mentioned today.

  • GPS Enabled
  • Less than 19 AF points
  • Eye control autofocus
  • 5fps

Awesome shots! congratulations to the winners, i was wondering what is the abstract actually a picture of though?

It's a microscopic photo of a crystal.

It took me 8 months to get the M9 approval.

She's glad now, it's a lot lighter in her purse than a full fledged DSLR  :D

Finding an app developer has been more difficult than I thought it would be. It's apparent Canon Rumors needs an official one.

2012 is the year I get it done, come heck or high water.

Hey, that's interesting. I'm not sure they can do that... I've never commissioned an app.



Wow, I figured this was the official, authorized, CR app.   None the less, I love it.

Do you use the free or paid version?
