Big Megapixel Talk [CR2]
« on: October 08, 2012, 02:04:08 PM »

It’s coming, just not as soon as you’d like

A couple of known sources have finally popped up to talk about all the high megapixel rumors floating around this site and others. While most of what we’ve posted has been [CR1], there still seems to be a level of truth to it. However, I’m told that IF there is an announcement in 2012 for a high megapixel camera, it would only be a development announcement. There is nothing in the way of marketing or production for the rumoured camera.


Canon has done a very good job in recent months locking down the rumor mill, even going as far as giving far less NDA’s to media types.


I am confident the prototypes are out there, we just may not get our hands on one for a long while yet.

I'd like to at least hear a direct statement from canon about development, that way we would have an idea as to whether it will be a $3,000ish D800 competitor or a $8,000+ 1 series monster.

I've been using Canon for 12 years. I had film camera, then 20D, 5D, now 5D MK II. Now i am considering to sell my camera and all L-series lenses and switch to Nikon. Never tought it could happen to me! But what Canon is doing recently is just some kind of a joke. 6D is a big dissappoint to me, less mpx than MKII, higher price, no built in flash (I know it's funny but i wanted to use it as a family camera). Canon doesn't have breaktrough developments like in the past, this brand will become follower not leader soon (maybe it is already). The next thing they would announce: "Please customers don't buy Nikon, we will do something worse for much more money somewhen in the future. These rumors about a possibly developments are just trying to slower Nikon sellings. Won't work, Canon!

Yep. Got to love people who think more megapixels will automatically make them better photographers.

Until the real announcement and from there something in between 1-3 years until it starts shipping. You will eventually hold it in your hands in about 5 years.

A person has to be somewhat optimistic

I thought 1 1/2 years was realistic, as evidence the many posts  I see asking if they should buy the 200x400 or buy something else.

It is 2 years and counting.

I have to say though, Canon seems to deliver bodies faster than lenses.

This rumor sounds much more realistic. According to the last wave of rumors, Canon is supposedly developing a sensor focused on greater dynamic range and megapixels that just happens to address the biggest complaints of the vocal e-whiners, dynamic range and megapixels. Plus, the rumored 46 megapixels just happens to coincide with a 18 megapixel APS-C sensor scaled up to full-frame. It was all a bit too convenient, don't you think ;D?
