EOS Bodies / Re: Leaked photo of 5DIII/X to be 38MP ?
« on: February 17, 2012, 01:18:38 PM »
As Tijn pointed out I think the OP's analysis is wrong (as was mine because I had the LCD size wrong).   The mystery camera is zoomed into about 1/7th - 1/8th of the horizontal size.   If the screen is 720*480 and he is fully zoomed in then the dimensions would be (assuming 1/8th) -  5760 x 3840  or 22MP (!).

The screen could have a higher resolution than 720*480 and the tester may not be fully zoomed in.

Edit: OOPS!   Fixing my calcs again I get between 38MP - 50MP.

Also, I believe my 7d has much higher resolution than 720x480 (they claim 900,000+ pixels in the specs).   The new 5d may even have an even higher resolution than the 7d.
As can be read in the discussion from the original topic, the 720x480 is for tricolor pixels. Each consisting of three subpixels. You have 920K subpixels, the 60D has 1.04 mil subpixels. (Which, coïncidentially, is 720x480x3 = 1036800)

Ah.  Didn't know that.   Then maybe also you can't zoom in past 100% crop on the 7d.

Thanks.

Nice post he made there... I don't quite get it though. On my 60D, when I zoom all the way in on an image, the size of the crop indication is basically identical to that of the 5D-? photo as he recovered it. Obviously, the 60D is 18Mpx. And its screen is the 3-inch 720 x 480 LCD that he's using for his calculations.

See included great quality webcam image of my 60D lcd screen when fully zoomed in on an image, and compare... (The horizontal lines are just the curtain-type things I took a picture of to make this comparison)

On my 7d you can zoom in past 100% crop.   Also, I believe my 7d has much higher resolution than 720x480 (they claim 900,000+ pixels in the specs).   The new 5d may even have an even higher resolution than the 7d.

Even 12 gigapixels?!?

Not sure where this clown came up with his 38MP number but I did a similar analysis of the lcd screen bird picture several weeks ago and came up with 100MP+ as I stated on another thread here:

I've ascertained from the picture of the LCD display of the bird that this prototype camera has at least 100MP!  This is based on the following assumptions:

1. the LCD has at least a pixel count of the 7D  (921,600 pixels) and has approximate dimensions of 1174 x 785 pixels (3:2)
2. the professional Canon photographer is not a pixel peeper (he's not viewing at over 1:1)

My calculations are based on the small box showing that approximately 1/7th- 1/8th of image's narrow edge is being displayed which would put the resolution at least 12327 x 8218 or 101,303,286 total pixels.

If it uses lossy compression, the result can not be better than the original file. Better quality than JPG - yes, but not better than the original RAW/DNG file.
Sure it can if it manages to lose a bunch of noise.

EOS Bodies / Re: *UPDATE* 5D Mark III Book Shows Up at Amazon France
« on: February 14, 2012, 01:59:24 PM »
Using translate.google.com to translate the French book description:
Très didactique et magnifiquement illustré, cet ouvrage vous délivre les bases à connaître sur le reflex numérique Canon EOS 5D Mark III, et décrit précisément chacune des fonctions et des options de paramétrage de ce boîtier. Il s'attarde sur les techniques spécifiques pour photographier les différents sujets que vous pourrez être amené à rencontrer chaque jour (portrait, action, paysage, macro.). Enfin, il vous guide pour appréhender les différentes étapes de la postproduction et les choix d'évolution de votre matériel photographique.

to English results in:

Very educational and beautifully illustrated, this book delivers the basics you need to know about the DSLR Canon EOS 5D Mark II, and accurately describes each of the functions and configuration options of this case. It focuses on specific techniques for photographing different subjects that you may be asked to meet every day (portrait, action, landscape, macro.). Finally, it guides you to understand the different stages of post production and evolution of your choice of photographic equipment.

Apparently III in French means II in english.   :(

Any idea why the lens specs aren't printed on the ring?

They had no other use for the 5mm of real estate they added to the filter ring.

EOS Bodies / Re: When do you expect to see CR3 rated 5D/3D rumors?
« on: February 10, 2012, 12:56:02 PM »
In May, 1987, they launched the EOS 620, an upgraded version of the EOS 650.  So, if you're right and Canon marks the 25th anniversary of EOS with a 5DIII, will they stick to historical prececent and launch a 5DIV two months later?   :P

Yes, maybe we'll start seeing 5D upgrades as often as we see Firefox upgrades.

Lenses / Re: Pricing of the New Lenses

Canon has decided the Euro, USD and GBP have achieved parity. Dont expect to see massive sales of new primes

Just be glad they didn't decide the Yen has achieved parity with the others.

I hope someone makes a 82mm to 77mm filter adaptor so I don't have to buy all new filters when I get this thing.    :o

The focus ring is bigger than mk I hence no room for the description - at least where they usually put it.

Why would the second switch -- whatever it is -- be shorter than the focus switch?   It's not just perspective, the 2nd switch doesn't extend as close to the focus ring.

My grandchildren's soccer meet with 5D MK II and 70-200mm f/4 IS:

it's about time they livened up the game with a few hurdles.

No one will be able to use the 200mm f/5.6 with a 1.4x extender on a Canon 1DX!!!      >:(
