1Ds Mark IV Dimensions Outed?
« on: July 28, 2011, 07:11:07 PM »

A little thing, but a thing.

Did the folks at Gigapan out the dimensions of an upcoming 1Ds Mark IV?



You can check out the page for yourself over at Gigapan. The numbers are width, height, depth and mass.


Thanks Victor

that's actually a pretty convincing indication ... usually these are "someone mistyped 1D IV with an 's' " but clearly that's not the case here.  come on, body announcements!

edit: damn. eos 7dsv is not a video thing i've just discovered, was announced last year and i missed it...

but yay for 1dsmk4, it can't be an easy typo because all the dimensions are different to everything else...

Sure,  Canon gives info on a new 1 series camera to gigapan first?

That would also be a new first.

mmm... interesting....

I never knew that the 1D4 is the lightest of the 1D products. I wonder what's
accounting for the weight difference?

They're just the first to slip up?

The specs on the Canon Camera Museum ( http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/index.html ) give that as the weight but, unlike some earlier models, don't give an additional weight for the battery, with Gigapan's weight being (close to) the sum of the camera and battery weight. Your guess is as good as mine regarding whether the battery is included in the 1D4 weight or the battery weight was left out.

I was on the Gigapan site yesterday, wonder just how on earth anyone makes those images commercially useable, and I can't think of a way.  The motorised head is close to £1000 / $1000 not cheap so I can't imagine that they sell that many, why on earth would Canon think they were a significant enough business to give them pre release information?

Well also a 7DSV and a 5D MK II is listed. Wonder where they got all this information, would seem odd if Canon had delivered all this information by now.

It does seem unlikely that this company need to know pre-release, but then they are:  a commercial spin-off of a successful collaboration between researchers at NASA and Carnegie Mellon University that developed the breakthrough GigaPan System for creating high-resolution panoramic images.

What's your point?  As Dr. Croubie figured out above, the 7DSV is the 7D Studio Version which was released last year (it's the 7D with different firmware that allows an admin to lock out some functions, and is compatible with a barcode reader to add that to the EXIF data).  The 5D MK II was released in 2008, remember?  The 1Ds IV is the only unreleased camera on the list.

It's not really surprising that Gigapan got the information, assuming it's real.  I'm sure Canon has a long list of vendors to whom they deliver specs and in some cases engineering diagrams ahead of time, so things like L-brackets and other accessories can be designed and released in reasonable proximity to the product.  What is surprising is that it's still up on the Gigapan site.  That a mistake by Gigapan, and will probably result in them being taken off the pre-announcement information vendor list.

This may represent a slip-up by Gigapan, or possibly an intentional act, whether or not the data are real - as pointed out, they probably don't sell that many of their products - and this 'slip' has certainly garnered them a lot of attention (sufficient motivation to fabricate the data).

Still, it's one more piece in a growing body of evidence that a 1Ds IV is coming out soon - we all know the well has been dry for too long, and it's almost 'announcement season.'  Plus, I've got this big pile of cash waiting on something...maybe a 1Ds IV, maybe a 500mm f/4L IS II.   :D

Maybe I am reading too much into this, but maybe Canon is linking with GigaPan?  :o

Maybe the 1DsIV will have some kind of Panoramic mode... maybe in live view, it will tell you when you have got the framing right for a 20% overlap for stitching?
I think that would be quite a useful feature, or maybe something to do with the wide dynamic range you often get with panoramas?

Then again it would make more sense if Adobe was linking with gigapan to improve the photomerge function in photoshop
