Not everyone wants/needs high frames per second. When was the last time you shot a portrait at 10 FPS ??? When was the last time that you hot landscape at 10 FPS ??? When was the last time you shot table-top at 10 FPS ??? When was the last time you shot your vacation at 10 FPS ??

Never.  But last week I shot portraits at 12 fps. A few months ago, I shot my vacation at 12 fps. This morning I shot macro at 12 fps.

Your needs and usage patterns aren't everyone's.   :P

Um, that's why there are multiple models being discussed as potential announcements this year.

Yes, but all the complaing centers on the alledged specs of the 70D :) the lowest cost DSLR being discussed :) not the 7D or 1DSx ;)

Yeah.  I won't lie.  It would be so nice to get a good, FF camera, low ISO and high DR, at under $2000.  I can dream right?  :).

First company to release affordable mirrorless FF, will eat Canon's lunch for sure.

Sony is halfway there with their RX1. All that is missing now is a model with interchangable lens system.


They won't need to FullFrame to eat Canon's lunch. DPReview did a reader pole, and named the Olympus OM-D E-M5 as the camera of the year http://www.dpreview.com/news/2013/01/01/best-camera-of-2012-results

The Olympus E-PM2 has the same sensor and the fast-focus of the OM-D E-M5, while costing significantly less than the Canon EOS M.

High FPS and high resolution together would mean 1 body could do it all which means maybe i can justify one purchase to meet all my needs versus two.

Canon worries about canniblization, but someone else will eat their lunch if they are not careful.

Well, Nikon and Sony ate Canon's lunch, dinner, and elevensies with the introduction of D800 and D600 in a large bite and also with other ancillary nips here and bites there...

This only makes sense when one fairly takes into account that Canon is the big dog in the kennel...any stolen lunch, perhaps even a bite says something.

But Canon will prepare another spread no doubt. That's what these rumors suggest.

The 1Dsx will do for me provided Canon manage to leapfrog Nikons current world beating performance with the 800E. If they can achieve that, then I will be in heaven, if not, then its goodbye Canon. I'm not hanging about if they continue to produce cameras with noise and banding issues but with excessive ISO figures.

Having said that, my present 5DII is OK for the moment, so I would rather they spent more time getting it right than a rushed "knee jerk reaction".

Just interested, what do you think an $8,000+ 38+MP camera will do for you when you can currently live with a $1,300 21MP 5D MkII? What do you shoot now, and what do you do with your output that would necessitate such an upscale?

D800 has higher dynamic range and also more resolving capability. Does not infer you need the high MP, just some of the other features....
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

Hey guys :)

I need a bit of an education from you guys.

What effects noise at higher ISO or longer shutter speeds? Is it purely processor related or does the pixel size of an APS-C body contribute as well?

I own a 500D and I was put off by the 7D not having a definite advantage when it came to noise.

I so hope this is the one area they focus on. The top Canon APS-C body, that many will attach their 400mm+ glass to should be just better.

Pixel size primarily, you can do wonders with software, but what you can do with software of a FF, you can do to an APS-C

he did start the post with "Not everybody" :)

I always shoot group portraits with a burst.....there always seems to be someone blinking, yawning, or that momentary facial twitch.... and if I don't get a clean one I resort to photoshop.... but when I do this it is in the "slow burst" mode of around 2 frames per second.

Software is a solution but its disheartening owning the very best crop sensor body and having very visible noise shooting at ISO 400/800. It should be at worst twice as good IMO.

The specs on the D70 does NOT say 3fps. It says "3.0-inch Variable Angle LCD"

I was just coming to say same thing.

I wonder what is the price point for each of those? $1k8 for 7D2, $1k for 70D? That'd be my guesses.

That 70D rumor has got to be fake. How can they literally take away features and call it a new camera and sell it for a higher price? The T4i will surpass it in fps? Wow...

I've been waiting for this camera for a year now and these rumors are just a slap to the face. Hopefully it has 6fps and better image quality and AF system than 60D. Give up higher frame rates in video too.

That's how I felt at first. Then looking at the image more closely, it was clear that the characters after the 3.0 for the 70D were different than the characters after the 10 for the 7DII. I figured it was for a 3.0 Inch Vari-Angle LCD.

Others who can read Japanese have confirmed that it refers to screen and not FPS. Whew!

I smiled a little..."worldbeating"...

And as for what you will require Canon to deliver on their high MP flagship at thousands of dollars more... so, you, a 5D II user, will continue to "hang about" ... I am sure they are shaking in their boots :)
