EOS 70D, DIGIC 6 & 18mp Sensors
« on: March 20, 2013, 05:48:20 PM »
Where is the 70D?
We’re told today that the 70D has been pushed into April, we had hoped that an announcement would be coming next week.

DIGIC 6
DIGIC 6 will be introduced tonight in the SX280 HS as reported a few days ago. We’re told we can expect DIGIC 6 to make its first appearance in an EOS camera inside the EOS 70D.

18mp Sensors
Keep an eye on the SL1, as it has a brand new 18mp sensor on the inside. As present, we can’t confirm that it’s also in the T5i, though it would make sense. We’re told that the 70D will have the same sensor. This is from a new source.

Lenses
Nothing on the lens front, though we expect to see one announced with the EOS 70D.

The EF 00-400 f/4L IS 1.4x is becoming a running joke with folks at Canon, I don’t think any one really knows why it hasn’t been officially announced yet.

Then it is probably reasonable to assume the same "new" 18MP sensor in 700D.

Probably just means they're trying to announce closer to availability... they knew it wouldn't be ready to ship till June, so just delayed the announcement till closer to that date.

It is really possible that Canon developed a new 18 mp sensor. There was a new patent for anti aliasing and reduce moire in february i think here at CR. And I´m glad to hear that 70d won´t be a mp-monster so the noise will be acceptable.

It'd be pretty funny if only the new 100D and 70D had it, and they left the same sensor from the 650D in the 700D.

I would assume that this means the 70D will have the video autofocus tech connected with the sensor

It will be interesting to learn what the Digic 6 brings to the table.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

Hey CR guy, are you sure you didn't mess up a bit with numbers? I mean, apart from the 00-400, can you confirm the source said 70D and not 700D? Thanks!

edit:  you were typing your implicit confirms while I was sending my post...

Could be, but I can't confirm it.

Im betting new technology across the board for APS-C.... Better ISO performance and better live-view / movie focus for all APS-C.

Space is not infinite in factories, there is only space for so many fabrication lines.... If they have a new/smaller fabrication process it took a lot of time and money to set it up, and they had to keep the old APS-C fabrication line up while the new one was installed, tested, debugged, and the resulting products tested. If they have the new one up and running, my bet is that they are ripping out the old one, changing it/converting it to do the same thing for the FF fabrication, and that means no more old APS-C chips for existing cameras.... and they will soon be replaced/discontinued.

And why APS-C first and not FF? Because smaller chips are easier to make, and there is a lot more money to be made from APS-C than FF.

Ah the EF 200-400 f/4L IS... The worst kept secret and will be the most un-exciting announcement ever.

Ah, yes, the 200-400/4 IS and this 135/1.8 IS I keep hearing aboot.  Now a 00-400/4, is that different from the new 0-400/4?

No no... he's not talking about the 200-400.... he's talking about the 00-400 lens.... obviousl some new super-ultra-mega wide angle lens...

A new sensor! Oh no. What will people whine about now?

No worry, for some folks nothing Canon will ever do will be enough.
