Canon Foveon... bring it :)

I've used that big auction site to buy and sell.

EOS Bodies / Re: What do you hope-for MOST from Canon in 2014

Um.. I would be comfortable is betting alot that Canon will not make use of a sensor from a company owned by Sigma.

They may patent and distribute their own version at some point.

I recall seeing a mention of a Canon patent covering their version of Foveon tech here a little while ago.

Doesn't hurt to dream :)

A 1DXs with a Foveon sensor...


The cost of the printer is often much less than the cost of the ink.

Printing at A3 will use much more ink than printing at 4"x6".

Even something like the Canon Pro-10 has small ink cartridges.

If available, aftermarket (3rd party) ink can be an alternative.

I'm hoping for a Foveon type sensor :)

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Contact the manufacturer of the original, Viewtainer.

Note that the style in the link below is available with a solid top. Maybe others are too.

I can confirm that DPP 4.0.0 does not support 7D CR2 :( But it can be installed in parallel with DPP 3.14.15 that still supports it.

So I guess it won't support a 1D either?

I haven't downloaded it to see.

I like my 1D :)

I know if I don't order one of these, a few weeks later the new high-MP FF body with killer AF and DR will be released for way more $ and I'll regret not buying this 1DX deal till the cows come home.

Fixed it for you  ;)

I hate to be wrong, good thing it doesn't happen often.  :P

It's a good thing you are modest too :)

You are probably right, but then again there are many people like me who don't really care about "high-ISO" performance and are instead always griping about the lack of 50 ASA and ...  :o ... 25 ASA equivalent. Plus it now seems that even 100 ASA/ISO is biting the dust.  :'(

All I can say is I don't play too much at either extreme.

I don't look for high ISO performance, but it is really nice to not need a flash and still have the image come out nice.

I don't get the whole low ISO thing, either. Not saying that it isn't important, but if Canon isn't delivering the product that fits that niche then someone else will.

From what I remember of 35mm film photography, pretty much any digital body I have tried since (and including) the 5DII beats my memories. And, I never had a darkroom- digital allows me to do so much more than just getting 4x6 prints developed. Suffice it to say that I am pretty happy with what some call "mediocre" offerings from Canon. I get many compliments on mediocre shots with said mediocre equipment too  ;D

It would be nice to try one of those Sony's with an adapter, but that is a niche purchase for my uses. Maybe I'll rent one to see what the hubbub is about. I should have picked up one of those DP3 Sigmas when they went on sale... but the lack of a viewfinder really put a damper on things.

The question is why has Canon not released a 36MP'ish FF camera when both Nikon and Sony have done it.

So, if according to you, the ability of the processor(s) to handle the data is not the issue, then what is the excuse? Crummy lenses without the resolving power? No. Slow SD and CF cards? No. Inability to actually make such sensors? No. What then?

Or has Canon simply decided that absolutely no photographer actually needs 36MP in a FF package?

To those chucking Moore's Law around ... yes, possibly the DiG!C architecture can handle the data, but at what cost in terms of power consumption and thermal management? Both these factors can negatively impact on the actual use of the chips ... which leads to the same conclusion.

Nikon and Sony use the same sensors, correct?

How well does the 36mp Sony sensor hold up at say 3200 ISO and up compared to Canon? I know that a 12,000 ISO image from a 1DX is pretty much usable right out of the camera. The 5DIII does pretty good too.

I would guess that Canon will deliver their answer when they are good and ready. I do not understand the details of sensor fabrication, but I bet that Canon doesn't want to release a 36mp sensor that performs like the current 7D. Some like the 7D, some don't.

There is also the possibility that all of the people on photography forums screaming for a 36mp Canon sensor may  not actually buy one when it is released (measurebators) or the sales lost to Sony/Nikon are insignificant in the bigger picture.

The people wanting 36mp so they can crop at 400% must be a small part of the market, certainly not enough to support a camera line.

I have done 11 x 14 prints from a Canon 1D with a whopping 4.2mp and those look pretty damn good to my eyes without a stand alone program like Perfect Resize (I just used DPP and tried out Qimage with the jpegs). I just got the 17 x 22 paper to try that out. So, do people want a 36mp camera to make 4mp crop prints of the image?  ;D

I don't have any inside Canon info, but I suspect that when their answer to the 36mp Sony comes out, it'll be a knockout punch (I bet they have bought 36mp cameras at retail and looked inside very intently). Even if it isn't a knockout but a step forward, Canon is a pretty diverse company. The measurebators wanting the 36mp sensor are eclipsed by the pro's wanting a system that works or the hobbyists that don't care.

I wonder what it will cost when/if it is released...

I wonder if people inside the Canon skunkworks laugh at these threads :)
