An EOS 3D Mention [CR1]
« on: December 28, 2012, 09:21:05 AM »
The myth!
The EOS 3D gets another mention over at Northlight, this time in the form of a 50+mp camera body that will appear in late 2013 or early 2014.

While I am pretty sure we’ll see such a camera eventually, I’m not sure when it will materialize.

Canon seems to be taking their time with a big megapixel camera, here’s hoping it’s because they want to get it right. I also think Canon is getting the “popular” lenses upgraded first to help get the most out of the upcoming big sensors.

I love the fact that they have placed a non-existing lens on the picture :)

Put that in a 1DX body and I'd be a happy camper.

1D size? Bleh.  :P

Put it in a 5D body and I'll cry rivers of joy.
Put it in a weather sealed rebel body, and i'll trade my soul for it.

Canon will definitely need a faster DIGIC processor (or two?) for any higher Megapixel camera.
They may be waiting for that new DIGIC processor to be completed before releasing a "EOS 3D".

Just look at the bottleneck that a Nikon D800 has to go through to get only 4 fps!

Canon has eight lines of DSLR bodies (xxxxD, xxxD, xxD, four single digit bodies, and EOS-M) requiring two lines of lenses, exclusive of video cameras.

Isn't Canon already stretching itself thin enough w/o starting another line of bodies?

Taken from:
The Mathematics of Monkeys and Shakespeare  ;D  ( http://www.nutters.org/docs/monkeys )

I don't know who it was that first talked about the possibility of monkeys typing randomly on typewriters producing Hamlet entirely by chance, but it is an argument that I have often heard. "Sure it's unlikely," I'm told, "but given enough time and enough monkeys, it would happen."

Ok. seriously there is a slightly higher possibility that Canon 3D will materialize eventually. But this could be a nice CR0 rumor for now  ;D

Northlight has had more false predictions than true.  Have they ever predicted anything that came true?  How did that 1Ds Mark IV turn out last year?

So if Canon releases a 50+mp camera does that mean for sure that they have started using a new manufacturing process? Could they get 50mp out of their current process?

if they say "end of 2013", then at the end of 2014 may be we see specs and in 2015 I'll buy one :)

Really? You registered just to tell me that?  ::)

But in all seriousness. The price tag on this camera will give me no choice, so farewell my dear soul!
