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).

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III Brief Specs? [CR1]

"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.

EOS Bodies / Canon EOS 5D X Speculation
« on: January 23, 2012, 09:36:12 PM »
5D Mark III, 7D Mark II or neither? The camera that popped up today has brought about a lot of questions of what it might be. I’ve seen speculation from a few places that perhaps the camera is a replacement for both the 7D and 5D Mark II.  The camera definitely looks to be full frame, however there is a lot of the “sporty” features of the 7D.

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.


EOS Bodies / *UPDATE* 5D Mark III Sighting?
« on: January 23, 2012, 01:48:52 PM »
UPDATE Others are thinking that this could be a 7D Mark II. Which is possible, however the missing popup flash and larger prism would say otherwise. There’s no precedent, however if they change sensor size in a 7D replacement, they probably wouldn’t call it “Mark II”. Lots more will follow I imagine.

This photograph was snapped in Kenya this week. It appears to be a new full frame camera body.

Noted Features

  • No popup flash
  • Joystick on the battery grip
  • Screen appears wider (although it could be distortion)
  • New button layouts
  • New Scroll wheel

New Sensor Patent Canon has published a back illuminated sensor patent for APS-C and Full Frame sensors. Back Illuminated Sensors allow for a more effective use of pixel area.

Patent Publication No. 2012-15275

  • 2012.1.19 Release Date
  • Filing date 2010.6.30

Back-illuminated imaging device

  • The two bonded substrates photoelectric conversion unit and the peripheral circuit manufacturing to
  • Photoelectric conversion unit and the peripheral circuit microprocessor which is connected by bump
  • The incident light is changed and the current strong influence to adjacent pixels in the peripheral circuit, and noise (similar to a smear phenomenon).

Canon’s patented

  • And a peripheral circuit connected to a DC power supply photoelectric conversion unit
  • Resistance is lowered, reducing the voltage drop
