1D size? Bleh.  :P

Put it in a 5D body and I'll cry rivers of joy.


+1

By the time this gets released (late 2014??? perhaps earlier though since rumors claim they are going back to the old keep it secret until it is near ready to ship thing (when they did that people complained GIVE US A CLUE WHAT IS COMING! and then when they finally started doing that people complained IT'S RIDICULOUS THAT YOU TELL US WHAT IS COMING A YEAR AHEAD, EVERYTHING IS LATE!) it may be only sixth months to the 5D4.

That could actually be bad since they'd have to dumify the 5D4 to make this new higher tier but not yet 1 series tier look good. Where does it fit by then?

Unless maybe it is: 3D 50MP 6fps, big, ultra sensor, 1DX price (if they fit it into a 5D-sized body and had price  lower than 1DX that would be awesome though). 1DX2 is 27MP 14fps, big, ultra sensor, 1X price. 5D4 is 32/39MP 7-8/6fps with perfect 4k video (4x MP as on the C100), small, ultra sensor (the higher MP option there starts making the 3D look questionable though). ultra sensor = finally a new fab and design that gives great low ISO DR. Still seems very weird they'd use 3D as a name though, so I doubt that. 1. 3D not delivering 3D doesn't work well in this day and age. 2. It seems less like an EOS 3 than what the 5 series has become.

That mysterious Canon pyramid slide with a missing spot almost implied that some sort of high-end mirrorless DSLR may be the next big thing though (at least after a 7D2 perhaps).

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?

i guess they could.. but the quality would be not good.

as mentioned elsewhere they canĀ“t shrink the readout electronics anymore with the current process.
so i guess the light sensitive area of the sensor would be much smaller then with a 180nm process, to fit the readout onto the sensor too.


would be nice to know (for sure) what process they used for the 120MP APS-H sensor.

I agree with above post, naming the camera '3D' sounds like a really bad idea if it does not have any 3-D image features. Sure, some Canon users will understand the naming history. But, everyone else will be confused or annoyed with a camera called the 'EOS 3D' that does not shoot in 3-D - it sounds dumb. I hope Canon knows better than to use that name. It's a marketing fail waiting to happen.

This sounds pretty realistic to me.  If new sensor technology is going into this 50MP set-up, it's going to be a pro camera and go into a 1-series body.  The 5DMK4 will get the tech but not until 2014 and at a twenty-something MP range.  Really, who needs 50MP except for the commercial pros or hardcore/wealthy enthusiast. 

I do hope they are really taking their time to get it right.  I love the 1DX but it doesn't have the MP I want.  With this camera, give me a minimum of 6fps in RAW, a crop-mode, the new tech and I'd be very happy.  Oh yes...  Canon, will you PLEASE build-in WiFi and GPS?  Seriously.  :-D

$9k - $10k.  Sure if it's done right.  End of 2013 or early 2014.  I'd be cool.  I know I'll be upgrading around that time.

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

Can the design get any rounder? =P

40mm f1.2L ?  ???

This is an old photoshopped 'mock up' that someone did years ago.  It gets pulled out of mothballs whenever the 'mythical 3D' gets re-rumored.

Put it in a weather sealed rebel body, and i'll trade my soul for it.

That sounds like Homer's soul donut deal, be careful.

at 50MP why not just do a medium format camera ?

The problem with this is what are you going to do when ... 3DMkII is introduced  ;D

Isn't it past time to drop the D altogether? It isn't necessary to distinguish digital cameras from film cameras anymore.

Just call it the EOS 3 and put eye controlled focus like the original! And just drop in a 24MP sensor without an AA filter, that would be perfect.

Hmmm.  body wise (whether it could be a 1D series body or a 5D body)- I've been looking at the northlight rumors (wow it's be a long time since I've visited that site), and they're suggesting that it could perhaps be like a 1V body.  So the size of a 5D, in the style of a 1D (basically, the bottom grip on the 1D not there).  But it would be interesting to see how things get when this goes to a CR2.

Unless this supposed megapixel monster has at least 22 stops of DR, it's going to be a steaming pile of junk.
