3D (Again) & 5D Mark III (CR1)
« on: June 14, 2011, 11:01:46 AM »
From an outside source According to information received by [NL], early 2012 will bring a new model full frame DSLR to the Canon lineup. The likely name will be the 3D. It will bring about new sensor technology for the EOS system.

The 5D Mark III wouldn’t make an appearance on the scene until summer 2012. It will feature a modified version of the upcoming 1Ds Mark IV sensor.

CR’s Take As mentioned over at NL, the 3D rumormill comes and goes and has done so for a long time. Although, this does go along with the idea of a split in the 5D line and the amalgamation of the 1D/1Ds.

I wouldn’t discount this one completely, but I’d have some sea salt handy.

This is usually when things get exciting. The closer we get to the release date the more info starts flowing through and I start checking NL and CR about twice a day haha. I did the same thing when I was waiting for the 5D Mark II. About a year before it was release I was online looking at specs and dreaming everyday.

Even when the 5D MIII comes out I think I'll still be shooting with my MII at least 50% of the time. I love that camera.

Hopefully we'll see some improved AF and better video. I really hope they don't split up one for photography and one for video. I'd end up buying both and go broke (car & house payments hinder me from going medium format and red one lol).

ARG!  :o I'm developing a new line of work to supplement my portrait/wedding side and I would really like a full frame sensor for this (inside cramped quarters) so that I can cover as much real estate as possible and I wanted to wait for the miii.  Looks like I might have to bite the bullet and pay the inflated mii price  :(

I would be amazed if Canon call their next full-frame camera a 3D - that name is too closely associated with, well 3D - you know three dimensional. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Canon took their model names off in an altogether different direction - possibly dropping the 'D' part altogether.

Hopefully if there is a 3D it is a full frame, low MP type camera to compete with the Nikon D3s in the high ISO area. Though naming it "3D" implies that it will be more costly than the 5D Mark III and thus out of my range.

Summer 2012 for the 5D3? It's barely summer of 2011! Has Canon just decided to stop releasing anything new? They're just moving at a glacial pace at this point. Ridiculous.

So the new camera would be an EOS 3?  Why does that name seem familiar??
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Yeah, you're right Eyeone. Nobody knows for sure, probably not even Canon at this point. I guess for us video guys who bought too many Canon lenses, we're a lot more desperate than the stills guys, because as a stills camera, the 5D2 is very good, but as a video camera, we really need some up-grades.

But dang.... it needs to come out soon.

Don't forget about the earthquake!  I'd rather they regained full operating capacity than hurry and maybe deliver products with lots of problems.

It doesn't matter what it is associated with.  Remember rumors before 1D Mark IV came out?  4 is a bad number in Japan, there are no 4th floors, 4 sounds like death, Canon will skip labeling its flagship camera with number 4, etc. So what?

I am still surpised that no one has commented on the 40mm 1.4L that is attached to the "3D" in the picture. granted it looks like a cheap "fake" but it would make me wonder is that is a hint that the future "3D" is though to be a 1.3 crop.
