1Ds Mark IV & 3 Lenses in August?
« on: May 27, 2011, 09:34:58 PM »
1Ds Mark IV before 5D Mark III? We’re told August will be a major announcement month. The 1Ds Mark III replacement and 3 lenses will be announced. No detail into what lenses.

5D Mark III to follow soon after according to a few folks.

It probably won’t be until July when we started getting solid stuff with specs and a clearer picture of what’s coming down the immediate pipeline.

7D replacement? Not until well into 2012 at the earliest. You can buy it, it’s a great camera.

Yeah, because the 1st major pro/semi-pro announcement since Oct. 2009 should be a camera that a very, very tiny fraction of your customer base can afford.  People are just not gonna pony up $8k to buy it, pro or otherwise.  Sorry, but the 1Ds just isn't on the radar for very many people, just a list of specs to gawk at while we continue to wait impatiently for the new 5D.  Makes alot of sense to me...

Well, August/September is the usual timeframe when Canon announces new products.

First in line for announcement is the 1DV. 

Of course the 1DV will be full-frame and come with more than 21mp, so I guess it could be considered a 1DsIII successor as well - in addition to being a 1DIV successor, that is.

Btw, Canon needs a strong holiday-season seller, so it's very likely that the 7DII will actually be announced in August/September together with the 1DV.

The rumors that the 7DII will come in 2012 are CR0.

I agree with Stone on the 1Ds not being on "radar" for most people. 7k is a lot of money for a cam that shares the same sensor as the 5DII. 

I'd rather diversify and get an M9 or another tele.

The 7D, I'm sure it's great camera but suffers in IQ compared to the 5D. Esp in low light.  Again, another lens is probably a better value.

I THINK:  :P

Future canon line-up:

1ds series : Full frame pro. Either Dual processors and/or a faster buffer management system.

3d Series : Replaces 1d series. Will either sport a FF or the 1.6 crop sensor. If FF, MP will be less than 1ds while everything (AF, Video) will match 1ds. Chances are it will be 1.6 crop in pro sports body! Dual processors. FPS will be higher than 1ds.

5d series: Prosumer. Will be a FF sensor from the 1ds lineup but with reduced MP. If the 3d is a FF, then the 5d Series could share that exact same sensor. Prosumer body with trimmed features from 1ds.  Dual processors if video is top notch else just one processor. Trimmed down AF.

7d series: Prosumer versions of 3d series with a 1.6 crop. Rest of the features will match 5d series except for FPS and dual processors.

consumer series: 60d likes.

If the 1DsIV announcement does take place in August, it should be interesting to see what the specs are for the new flagship model. Perhaps the rumored DIGI V and even stronger ISO performance?

If nothing else, this will give the public a better picture of what to expect for the 5D3...

The announcement is a 1ds4 camera followed by 5d3 in September.

A 1d4 replacement early next year to be replaced by 3d. The 7d gets an upgrade next summer.

BTW, if Nikon comes out with a D700 successor announcement earlier (say in June this year), Canon will announce both the 1ds4 and the 5d3 at the same time. This time they specced these right so that they are further apart than closer.

(As seen in my crystal ball!  8) )

IDs MkIV and 3 lenses announced August - Delivered to retailers sometime in late 2012?  After several embarrasing false starts promises broken and a few delay announcements!


Never mind new announcements we cannot trust a company to deliver product when it hasn't even managed to deliver the products it announced last year!

The reason it was not announced earlier is because Canon needed time to get the plan for retooling done so that it aligns optimally with the execution of their business continuity plan after the disaster. It does not make sense to retool and resource from other vendors parts for models that will be phased out anyways.

Once they have an assurance that their retooling/sourcing plan for the new models is concrete and supply chain plan is in place, an announcement is imminent.

It will be 1 in late July/early August and the other one in September. Both of these could get pulled in to July if Nikon makes certain moves with their D700 replacement.

BTW, the 1ds4 is drool worthy than ever before! Nothing will touch this for a couple of years to come. The only spec that might give this the jitters is when Sony comes up with a 3D still camera.  8)

I can't honestly see Canon releasing a product called '3D' because of it's obvious link to the other '3D.' Unless of course it is a 3D Camera, but I can't honestly see that happening either.
