EOS Bodies / Re: Two New Full Frame Cameras in 2014? [CR1]

I would like to see following out of 5D4:
Wifi
GPS
DPAF
Touchscreen for DPAF focus
micro USB 3.0 cable support for faster cable transfers to PC

Yup, they will all be there.

Quote
Touchscreen for Pinch to Zoom image preview, quicker image proofing
Articulating screen if they are able to make it durable for creative shooting purposes
Dual SD slots that fully support UHS II standard

All quite possible since they're gimics that will attract feature-buyers...

Image quality improvement

If you're lucky...

Or people like me that care about DR and IQ just haven't bought a 5D3 because it doesn't add any value over the 5D2 ...

Umm...I guess 61points AF system doesn't mean anything ::)

Exactly right.

People like you...who are in the minority.   ::)

And you know this because...?

Funny that not too many people speak about Improved DR, while the fierce D800 vs 5D3 discussions and the numerous DxO mark discussions always claim Canon has much worse DR compared to competition. I may not be too bad after all  ;)

That said, physically, I think it is impossible for any camera to have a true two stops better performance than the current 5D III...

The 36MP Nikon D800 already offers 2 points of DR above what the 5D3 does with comparable noise.
The D800's pixels are 4.9um, the 5D3's are 6.25um.
So not "better" but "the same" for smaller.

A new 5D next year? Don’t think so.
5D => 5DII 3 years;
5DII => 5DIII 3.5 years;
5DIII => 5DIV… 3 to 4 years probably.
So it will be well into 2015 and probably 2016 before we get a new 5D.

If the successor for the 5DIII arrives later than 2015 then I doubt that I'll buy it because by then I expect Oympus and others to have increased the IQ in m4/3 and other smaller cameras to the point where I'm happy. I also expect by then that their AF solutions to be just as good as anything in a DSLR.

Already the Nokia 808 PureView is able to give the D800 a run for its money so...

Sure, people will still buy the 5DIV if it arrives in 2016, but it won't be a very interesting proposition as a new camera.

So you never heard of CFast 2.0 ...
http://www.sandisk.com/about-sandisk/press-room/press-releases/2013/sandisk-launches-world%E2%80%99s-first-cfast-20-memory-card/

Canon is also a supporter of the CFast 2.0 standard. Masaya Maeda, managing director and chief executive of image communication product operations at Canon said, "With extremely fast performance, CFast 2.0 memory cards will enable us to develop next-generation cameras with more powerful features, enabling future 4K Ultra HD video recording capability."

Yup, I'm not buying another CF camera unless it supports CFast.

The Nikon D800 is the first DSLR to use CFast cards.

Just give me a D800 in a 5D body and a 7D2 on the side, and I'll take on anything!

hehe ... had the 5D III come with the D800 sensor, I would have bought it and not needed anything else. :-)

Or even the D600's sensor.

It really is shocking that Canon will prob take 3 years to announce a high MP D800 equivalent, since the D800 was outed/released, or 4 years to actual release - Q1/2 2015.
Which probably means that the D800 was in Dev for 2 years before Feb 2012. Or another way to look at it is canon is 5 years behind Nikon / sony tech.

Considering that Canon said the C300 was an exception in being fast to market (2.5 to 3 year project), I suspect that a DSLR is more like 3 to 5 years in the making. This would make it impossible to see any new 6D or 5D camera available before March 2015, which coincides with this rumor. Why? Because Canon are simply unable to start from scratch and deliver a new camera with a new sensor to meet the challenge that is the D800 or D600 in any lesser time. Furthermore, given how the D800 has raised the bar in terms of IQ requirements for DSLRs, it is likely that any plans they had for a 5DIII were scrapped when the performance of the D800 sensor became apparent.

And for sure they will not be sitting on their current tech gleeing for 5 years which it what it seems since the success of the 5D mkII.

I think it has been evident for quite some time that Canon's sensor performance plateaued quite early on. After the 20D:

This makes me wanna move to the States, in Europe it's much more expensive.

Stuff being cheaper in the USA than elsewhere is the only good reason to live there.

but wouldn’t be the camera for “total image quality”. That would be saved for studio based EOS-1 body that is coming next year.

Great!!

Now at least we know that it isn't worth buying a new DSLR from Canon before that EOS-1 body is announced and to only buy DSLRs that are announced after it if we want better IQ.

So sharpness of 21P-MP on a 22MP camera is 95% or a 5% loss (the 300/2.8 is 100%.)
T-stop of 1.5 on 1.4 is 93% or 7% drop (the 300/2.8 has a 14% drop.)

Interesting perspective you have.  To compare Canon to Apple though, is rather silly, don't you think?

Maybe, maybe not.

Apple is no longer on the ascendency.
