List of the biggest changes
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 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.
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...
A few issues I have with this.
It could be legit. I’ve heard 21-22mp a lot. The frames per second is a new one.
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.
LensRentals.com I’m in the air right now leaving Memphis after spending 2 days at LensRentals.com. Roger, Aaron, Drew, Tyler, and the rest of the crew were great.
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.
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.
this is my first share on this website/forum, i just hope i am qualified here btw, anyone here know what kind of hover are these?

The Leak The pictures taken for this leak are pretty extraordinary compared to the stuff we’ve seen in the past. I’ve been asked if there has been a change in the way Canon is treating viral marketing, and I have no answer for that right now.
It is interesting that Nikon “leaked’ their D800 a little while ago, and the perceived direct competitor from Canon also leaks.
More to come I’m sure.
This photograph was snapped in Kenya this week. It appears to be a new full frame camera body.

Congrats to the winners on they're photos and prizes! Now the question remains, which lens did you choose Efroten?
The latest I have heard is the suspected final prototype is in the hands of the select few for testing. It has the same external zoom and is slightly shorter than the current model. It is also lighter.
There has been an IS version that was bigger and a lot heavier, as well as an internal zoom model, both of which were deemed too big and/or heavy.
There is also a suggestion that the 24-70 f/2.8L II could end up a kit lens for the next 5D camera.
