Just to throw in something i noticed earlier today re the 3D...

Was looking at some Wildlife photo winners on the Dailymail website (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2001152/Wildlife-photography-award-winners-Gorilla-makes-friends-duckling.html?ITO=1490) and noticed that the Youth Photographer winner (Eric Coomes) took his shot of a polar bear with a "Canon 3D; 28-300mm L IS lens at 235mm; 1/1600 sec at  /13; ISO 500; hand-held"

Make of that what you will, might be a typo, but then again, might not!

It's a typo, it's Canon 30D

Two things are definite:

1. Canon will not release a camera called 3D, unless it shoots 3d pics. It would be insane to do so. Many have pointed this out, and they are right.
2. Despite the fervent wishes of some, every Canon DSLR released in the future will support video.

I think this is right, but it doesn't matter what they call it. The camera needs to emerge, whether it emerges as a 5D successor and both 5Ds co-exist, or it comes out as a 3D, 2D, 4D, or whatever and coexists with the 5D2 for awhile, until perhaps a 5D3 upgrade emerges, or doesn't.

This is the next hot seller for Canon. They just have to figure out their strategy. This fall please. It's time.

I've been saving for the 5D MkII update, but by summer 2012 I will have saved enough for a Bugatti Veyron. Surely the current 'out of stock' status of the Mk II can't continue - does Canon really not care THAT much for sales?

Here in the US, at least, the major retailers sell out as soon as they get new stock in.  That would seem to indicate that the 5DII is still a strong seller, meaning less incentive for Canon to update the line.

Enjoy the new wheels...   :P

Less incentive to upupdate the line, perhaps, but doesn't mean that a higher model wouldn't sneak above it.

FF
24 MP
30+ pt af
8 fps
dual digic V
dual card slots
weather sealed

~$3.5K - $4K and I'd buy 2

It could be more sports/wildlife oriented than the new 5D which could remain the slow, entry level FF that people expect.  That leaves plenty of features left over for a flagship 1 series body with 10fps, integrated grip, 1.3 crop mode and a gazillion megapixels.....

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.
Actually that was the first thing I noticed — but it's a 40mm 1.2L, not 1.4. ;)

yes, yes they are right. It's a bit far fetched, but can't we dream of a DSLR 3D(imensional) camera?

Nothing like those old Soviet 3d cameras on 120 film, that would be nice but way too bulky. Maybe if we buy two, we can join them together, get 2 exactly the same prime lenses and take 3D photos? (even using zooms would be possible, get them both 'about right' and let software line up the details and crop to the right area)

ok, so the market for this would be tiny, or would it? i would definitely file it under one of those expensive advertising stunts of top-end products that inspire lower-end sales. Sigh, dreams...
Too much gear, too little space.

I can't believe that -anyone- prepared to pay several thousand dollars for an EOS 3D DSLR would seriously expect it to be a '3D' camera and then be surprised to find it wasn't.

Then again there are plenty of people about with more money than sense :-)

Hello Keith, welcome to Canon rumors.  Many of us (or at least me) follow your blog at Northlight Rumors, and particularly admire your experience and expertise with printing.

Including eye-controlled AF? 

Absolutely, I have always loved the feature. And provided I "reteach" the camera regularly it continues to perform, AF'ing faster and more reliably than any digital upstart I've played with.

I am very aware that it is troublesome for those with "oriental eyes" as for whatever reason it plays up for these ethnic groups, but for us northern european's its fine. As I've said, it did/does need teaching and that takes time and patience which might explain why some decided not to bother.


I'm a French-English-German mix, and I HATE eye-control. I didn't buy an EOS 3, when new, because of eye-control. I didn't buy an Elan 7ne, because of eye-control, instead I got an Elan 7n (no eye-control).

Just because you like something, don't make the mistake that everyone likes it.

The Canon 3D is real, but Nikon sells it under the name D700. Full Frame, low mega-pixel,  51 focus points (15 cross-sensors) and good high ISO performance.

Wow... here comes the 3D rumor again... ;D

I remember we were taking about the possible upper-tier 5D model a long while back, and used '3D' as a theoretical name (7D-5D-3D). Though at that time we see the 3D as the one with the edge in video capacity while 7D has the speed and 5D with the resolution...

Well, unless the plan is to get the Fujifilm camera designed for taking 3D photos (or the Panasonic lens with the function), I don't think the user who's going to fork out 2.5K+ for that camera would make the mistake w/o doing basic homework first.

Assuming there's going to be a 3D-line, the question now would be whether it's going to be a video-oriented camera or a more feature-packed version of the 5D series.
