Things are even worser: the rumors are that the 7DM2 would be with the 2 of the DIGIC 5s. But you have no idea what has changed from 5 to 6, do you?
Canon have already stated that in DIGIC 6
we will witness:
* - Dynamic IS
now detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to create video that's exceptionally free of distortion.
My comment: I doubt that it would be implemented in the DSLRs. But who knows. Why NOT.
* - enables video recording in MP4
format. Highly compressed MP4
video not only preserves space on your memory card but also improves playback on mobile devices.
* - improved sensitivity that allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions. The above "improved sensitivity" to be read as:
* - Most probably improved ISO-NOISE-reducing-algorythm
which again would be trade of for DR
. I shoot in dark and these specs are important to me.
---Most of that is NOT concerning me, because I do stills and avoid video. I am most interested in High ISO and wide DR.
the basic design of Canon cpus and the operating system have been the same for the last decade. The digic certainly doesn't fix the sensor. EXACTLY!
However having in mind that CANON
have something new. They should IMPLEMENT
it for everyone or at least to those that are willing to pay above $1k
and most probably are amateurs
s with small budget options.
