EOS Bodies / *UPDATE* New High-End DSLR Later in February [CR3]
« on: January 29, 2012, 12:48:37 PM »
*UPDATE* Invites have gone out to Canon Platinum CPS members to prioritize purchases of the new EOS-1D X. This is most likely the CPS event we’ve been told about.

For the launch of the Canon EOS-1D X, Canon would like to offer priority purchase for CPS Platinum members, as our most valued customers, we want to ensure we continue to add value to the CPS program where we can.

Not on February 7 [CR3] There will not be a 5D Mark III or similar announced on February 7, 2012.  It is suggested the “embargo” lift on the 7th may be for samples from the EOS-1D X.

Lenses [CR2] Another 24-70 f/2.8L II mention came my way. It will be announced with a DSLR.

More to come.

EOS Bodies / *UPDATE* 5D Mark III - February 7, 2012 [CR2]
« on: January 28, 2012, 07:49:42 AM »
*UPDATE 2* Another source highly doubts February 7, 2012 is the date for an announcement. All the little bits of information that are leaking say it’s close, but it may not be that close. Please do not treat February 7, 2012 as fact until I can [CR3] it.

*UPDATE* Another source says it’s odd that Canon & Nikon would announce on the same day.  I have yet to see an actual invite to a press event for February 7, 2012. Good people are saying it’s coming that day, my gut is telling me otherwise. I do think the camera will be announced well before the 1D X ships.

More mentions A few more people have mentioned February 7, 2012 as the announcement date for the 5D Mark III. The sources are good, though I am waiting for the definitive word on the matter.

It’s mentioned that Canon will also announce new PowerShot cameras, a new Legria camcorder and Selphy printer(s).

Kevin Wang, based in Taiwan, posted on his Facebook wall that he will be an official photographer for the 5D Mark III. (thanks Hansen)

5D Mark III Specs If I put together everything I have heard, these are the specs of the 5D Mark III.

  • 22mp
  • 61pt AF
  • 7.5fps (this I’ve only seen once)
  • DIGIC 5
  • New Battery Grip with Joystick
  • GPS Ready

No lenses were mentioned for the announcement date of the 5D Mark III. However, a solid source that reported the 24-70 f/2.8L II and 35 f/1.4L II a month or so ago, says both lenses will be shipping sometime in April. Lenses have always been the toughest to nail down.


Software & Accessories / *UPDATE* Canon Pixma Pro-1 Review Sneak Peek
« on: January 27, 2012, 04:31:14 PM »


The review will have to wait, as my Pixma Pro-1 is broken. Something is wrong with the paper feed as I am getting scraping down various kinds of paper. 285, 310 & 325 GSM paper are all showing the issue. The obvious cleaning and maintenance has been performed, and the issue is not improving. I have also attempted manual feed and rear feed, and that isn’t changing the outcome either.

Canon Pixma Pro-1 Review Sneak Peek

I have finally received my Canon Pixma Pro-1 A3+ printer, and an extra ink set. I’m very excited to get some printing done with it this weekend. This is a bit of a sneak peak, as I’ll work on the full review as I work with it this weekend.

First Impressions

Bring a friend to the store if you’re going to pick one up. The box is huge and it must weigh 80lbs. It’s probably the largest and heaviest A3+ printer ever made.

The printer itself is quite nice to look at it, very clean and looks extremely well built. Could a printer be beautiful? This one may be.

The box is packed nice and tidy and it was easy to get out and onto a table, or desk. The initial setup was a breeze, and the printer appears to be relatively quiet. The ink cartridges are pretty large for an A3+ printer and are very well built. I paid $400 for a set of 12 ink cartridges, I have no idea if that’s good until we get into how much ink the printer will use. I always found the Pixma 9500 Mark II to be ink hungry, or the cartridges too small. I always had to have lots of backups if I got into a weekend print session.

I will spend the next couple of days playing around and will have a full review ready to go Sunday night (pressure or what?).

The Canon Pixma Pro-1 is in stock at B&H for $999

EOS Bodies / Canon EOS-1D X Delayed?
« on: January 27, 2012, 04:20:35 PM »

April 2012 Release?

From Calumet in the UK, comes word that the Canon EOS-1D X may not be shipping until April. I had heard that previously, and it’s not overly shocking.

No word on why the camera may be delayed.

Site Information / Canon Rumors Forum Update
« on: January 27, 2012, 09:46:05 AM »
Changed things up We’ve decided that the forum needed to be switched up a bit. There just wasn’t enough categories to cover the range of topics, so we’ve streamlined some parts, and expanded others.

List of the biggest changes

  • Added a “Gear talk” section, this area will be for gear & photography topics and not rumors.
  • Streamlined the rumors section, this area will be kept to just rumors and speculation.
  • Added image gallery categories
  • Added a video & movie gallery category
  • Added a technical support board.

We are in the process of moving topics to their new category if need be, so the forum may be a little messy for a couple of days.


Canon General / Patent: Canon RAW Video
« on: January 27, 2012, 07:41:58 AM »

Canon has filed a patent for RAW video

“The recording of successive frames of raw sensor data depicting a moving scene is provided. The raw sensor data comprises pixel data for an image sensor having pixels arranged in correspondence to a mosaic of plural different colors in a color filter array.”

EOSHD broke it down for people that like english.

  • Designed for compatibility with CF cards

  • Supports 4K and 2K video (4K is 4096×2048)

  • Works with Bayer CMOS sensor (like the one in a DSLR)

  • Sensor output is 12bit

Although current C300 camera has a 4K sensor, it cannot output a 4K image because most of the pixels are used to reconstruct colour without interpolation (made up pixels in-between).

"Housing companies are notorious for “leaking” information for traffic, which I just did."

Damn housing companies.  Publishing speculative information that is not confirmed!  Reminds me of another site I frequent...  Hummmm...

That's fair. :) Except I'm not selling you anything other than what you come to the site for.

EOS Bodies / 5D Mark III Brief Specs? [CR1]
« on: January 26, 2012, 06:48:20 PM »
From Aquatech On the Aquatech Facebook page, they have said the 5D Mark III will be 22mp and shoot at 7.5fps. They say it’s “directly from Canon”.

A few issues I have with this.

  • Housing companies are notorious for “leaking” information for traffic, which I just did.
  • Any old staff member may have updated the Aquatech status.
  • NDAs exist with third party manufacturers.

It could be legit. I’ve heard 21-22mp a lot. The frames per second is a new one.

thanks Zac


EOS Bodies / 5D3/X and Other Random News
« on: January 25, 2012, 03:42:03 PM »
5D Mark III / 5D X There has been nothing new to report on the recent leaked DSLR from Canon. Keep your thoughts and opinions coming though.

Rebel T4i & 70D [CR1] I have received little bits of info in regards to the replacement to the T3i and 60D, both will be “addressed” by the time Photokina rolls around (probably a lot sooner). Nothing in regards to specs or direction at this time. There’s a general opinion Canon will announce their mirrorless camera for Photokina in September.

Meanwhile [NL] is told that a new Rebel will be announced at CP+

Announcement date? My [CR3] level source in regards to announcement dates has yet to see one for CP+. Although it has been confirmed that Nikon will announce that day. It may just be a Coolpix day for them though.

5D Mark II at the Oscars A movie shot with the 5D Mark II has been nominated for an Oscar. So fear not, even if the new 5D Mark III makes it way to us soon, your 5D Mark II is still very capable.

Read more at Planet5D I’m in the air right now leaving Memphis after spending 2 days at Roger, Aaron, Drew, Tyler, and the rest of the crew were great.

Check out as well as their used section of Canon gear. I know for certain you’ll be happy with any used purchase.


EOS Bodies / 5D Mark III (or other) Followup
« on: January 24, 2012, 08:15:26 AM »
Follow-up form Stephen Oachs Mr. Oachs has posted a followup post to yesterday’s images of the new 200-400 and an unidentified camera. He’s also posted a RAW for those that believe the image was altered in any way.

Read it here

22mp perfect for 3×3 oversampling? Below is a direct quote about the reported 22mp resolution

I have no insider information, but just wanted to point that 22 MP has some “magical” properties for HD video, as it corresponds exactly to a 3×3 oversampling of the final video resolution. (22 MP, minus crop for 16:9 ratio, divided by 9, equal 1080×1920)

The next “magical” resolution (4×4 oversamping) is at 39 MP.

CPS Event in Yokohama? I’m told there is a CPS event in Yokohama, Japan at CP+. Those usually lead to some kind of announcement.


EOS Bodies / Announcement Date? [CR1]
« on: January 24, 2012, 01:13:15 AM »
When is the next announcement? After piecing together a different emails I have received the last few days. There is a common date of February 7, 2012 for an NDA/embargo lift. So that means all the testers can start talking and things are usually announced.

Nikon is apparently announcing on February 7, 2012. This comes two days before the CP+ show opens in Yokohama, Japan. A suspected D800 and 5D Mark III (or similar) on the same day?

Specs Another mention of 22mp resolution came in, as well as a “pro level” autofocus system. That bit of info comes from a known source.,

It has been a crazy day, and I’m sure more is on the way.
