EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III Brief Specs? [CR1]
« on: January 27, 2012, 01:09:45 PM »
As a landscape photographer. if Canon dosen't get off their arrogant position and give us some info on the
 1DS-IV, I for one am off to the Nikon D800 (36MP). I'll keep my 1DS-III as a backup. I don't need another PJ camera, but I would like a 40MP+ camera.
Well, I think it's too early to get any info of 1ds iv,at most you will hear some rumors from other sources, but they won't be solid!
From Canon?? Their new flagship is not on the market yet and you want some info of the next flagship model??
Like other said there are some brands do offer 40mp+ cameras, if money isn't the problem!
Or just go for Nikon!

A mere 22MP output would be incredibly disappointing for me, despite how great the rest of it will turn out. It would make me drop my plans of upgrading to the 5D Mark III entirely. Unless of course it has 18+ f-stops of dynamic range.
Well, it cannot satisfy everyone

Here's my "top secret" leaked spec list.

The 5DII replacment body will be:
Black or black-ish
Take still pictures, and probably video
Will most likely not use film
If digital, I have it on good authority the sensor will be larger than m4/3, but smaller than 645
Feature Auto-Focus
Will probably be EF mount
Will almost certainly be branded as Canon
Might have some type of removable flash memory based medium for picture storage
Will prominently feature button(s) <-note the plural, for key functions like taking a picture or changing setting

You heard it here first folks...   ::)


Any other news that are in the "rumour" department should NOT be believed. This post should be a CR0 as someone has put it. never believe in rumours.

It's not
Well Said!!
Then let's hope Canon can release a 8-600mm F2.0L IS weight less than 350g cost $500 ;D ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: The Canon 5D line and AF...

And this "the 5D was never intended for sports" argument is B.S.

I very much beg to differ! I think its been clear since the 5D that Canon is purposely positioning the 5D line to fill other markets, and they are intentionally protecting the market segment for their 1D line. Its not surprising, its expected, and responsible for the company to do that as well. The advanced AF features of the 1D line are incredibly expensive to design, develop, and manufacture. A single high precision diagonal cross-type sensor is no simple feat, and when there are 20, 40, or 60 of them in a system, that definitely increases cost. They need at least one market segment to help fund those advanced features, and the market segment that most needs them is the logical choice.

So yes, I strongly believe that the 5D was NEVER intended for sports. If it was, it would either be much more expensive, or the 1D sales would have disappeared.

Just the way the D700 and D300 and D300s made the D3, D3s and D4 disappear right?  Different companies but just saying.
Cannot believe someone is still saying"5D was Never intended for sports",so anything more than 9 point AF is intended for sports??? :o :o :o
Then Nikon d3000, d5000, d80 and d90 are all for sports(11 point AF)
Then Nikon d7000 is for super sports(39 point AF)
Then Nikon d300, d300s, d700, d3, d3s and d4 are for Mega sports(51 point AF)

Most of us are not insanely craving for a 1DX focus system not even the 1Ds Mark III's. We just want something close to the 7D's, isn't that too much for a $2500 camera which Nikon can get it done around $1500?????
Remember this 9 point AF was introduced in 2004 on 20D(if I am not wrong), then Canon used it on 20D-60D, 400D-600D, 5D and 5D Mark II(with certain updates of course, but still the basic is the same).
Don't We Deserve Something Better In 2012 Before THE END OF THE WORLD ;) ;)

It's hard to believe Canon will release a 5d mark III with only small improvements, unless there's another body is waiting to be released, such as "3d". Canon did this before, they could put all the new features into the 60D, but they chose to release a new model, the 7D

i just heard a rumor that 1DX will hit retail market unitl early May :-[ :-[

Do you have a link where this is stated?
Sorry, I don't have a link. I was told by a guy who works for a news agent. He was invited to attent the NPS(Nikon professional service) meeting in Beijing to try the Nikon D4. He heard this rumor from that meeting.

It's just a rumor!!

I think Canon is not confident enough about the 1DX right now.There are many  Nikon D4's sample images and videos on the web, but we haven't seen any thing from 1DX except two tiny images.
At CES people can try the Nikon D4 and view the large images through a monitor, but we have only seen very few websites reporting the 1DX, not even Canonrumors so far. Maybe I am wrong!!!!! I hope I am wrong!
