I think that this rumor is way to unclear for a CR2 level.

What else could be modular?...
- Lens mount
- Storage options (SSD?)
- Camera body mount
- Power options
- Auto focus system
I am not sure why there are so many freak outs and threats about switching to another brand.
When canon releases them they will be a solid reliable product. THey may not have the most cutting edge features(that seems to be Canon of the past) but they will be reliable, solid, functional. Thats what i want out of a product i am using to make money.
If i have constant camera errors i become and unreliable person to use no matter how good i could be.
Just like this was the year of the lens? I'm no conspiracy theorist, but maybe spreading rumors is official Canon policy right now for trying to stop video guys from jumping ship.yes of course it was: CZ and Sigma got great lenses for Canon out ))
At least we now know who you voted for ROFLRead into things much? The examples were chosen *because* most people have opinions on the subjects.
So....you voted for Obama, love hip hop and celebrate popular youth fashion? You'll forgive me for assuming that someone posting these things on a forum that skews heavily toward wealthy, middle-aged/elderly American and European white men had a specific opinion in mind.
You are right that ignorance doesn't stop people from forming opinions but it really really should.
This will be my last on the subject, ...continue if you please.
I am "the decider" re. whom/what I will forgive
In this case I will base the forgiveness on your obvious lack of situational awareness. You really, really should note that your ignorance re. my voting/music/fashion preferences has not "stopped" you from forming an assumptive opinion about same. ( FYI, your score was 33 1/3%, ...in my experience, this is a failing grade. )
I would go with the 6D instead ;-)I'd jump to buy a camera that had a max ISO of 100 and 1 fp 10 seconds if it offered better resolution and DR.
Get a 7D Mark II and a Gigapan. In 10 seconds, you can shoot something like a 9 shot panorama with a 5-shot bracket at each spot. That should get you 16+stops of DR and 115 megapixels.
You guys completely misinterpret and misrepresent everything I've said about this subject. You lump me in with your run of the mill complainer who jumps from site to site bitching about anything and everything Canon. I've been very consistent in my complaint...and it's just one complaint: Canon's sensor IQ, particularly the quality of their read noise, but their overall IQ that, IMO, suffers because of poor DR which stems from extremely old (ancient, in the tech world) technology. Stop misrepresenting me and my words to the rest of the community.
You are a run of the mill complainer, you want something that isn't available in Canon's range, and you want them to make it for you.IMO he is making an informed complaining. That means he's quite well aware what the others are doing or intend to do in the near future. He is informed about trends, brands and and all sort of tech stuff. So is Neuro. Both create opinions and seem to be among the most acknowledged in this community.
Not the patent, not sure where that is. Here is a paper on the topic, though:Nice one, but main goal should be to get all the 32 bit of information and not some discrete auto HDR image.
Mostly by Aptina engineers.
Yeah, I'm bummed the sensorgen.info domain expired. Those guys do seem to update the site with recent cameras...maybe it will come back when they notice the domain expired.I will try to ask around about it :-(
Regarding the whole stacking/in-sensor HDR idea. Other companies are working on that. There are patents that support just that very thing. Some companies are even researching how to use dual-gain (basically the same thing as Magic Lantern's Dual ISO) to improve dynamic range WELL beyond 14 stops (20, 22 stops maybe more).You sure about it? However a simple stacking of 3/5/9 frames @ different stops embedded in on image @32 bit is the best even without the multibucketing. The latter could only be useful for sport & High-FPS photography.
This is why I'm frustrated with Canon, and now open to alternative brands. Canon, while a highly innovative company, doesn't seem to be all that innovative when it comes to sensors. (Which is REALLY weird to me...given that they are an imaging company...pretty much everything they do revolves around digital image sensor technology.) Canon just doesn't seem to be in the sensor innovation game right now. They have had a couple, but none of it (at least so far...maybe their layered sensors will change things) has been very ground breaking. DPAF is pretty awesome for video...but even that was an evolution on an idea Fuji originally implemented (and I think Fuji got it from a much older paper.)
Back to the HDR sensor topic. I think the most viable technology at the moment is multi-bucket CCD-backed pixels. This is an Aptina innovation...they took the basic single-CCD backing buffer or "memory" for global shutter, and expanded it to four CCDs per pixel (it's a CCD, or charge-coupled device, as that's a very simple and efficient way to move charge from one place to another). With four memories per pixel, the charge in the pixel can be moved to memory four times.Patent link, patent link PLZZZzzzzz
I'm curious if this new layered sensor is the one that uses UV and IR layers to remove skin blemishes. If so, is this next Canon DSLR a replacement for the 1Ds, a studio and portrait camera?
The patent with the UV/IR layers sounded like it was for P&S cams.
... I would love to replace my 5D2 with something worth upgrading to....namely a 5D4 with this rumored new sensor.
