New AF Technology Coming in July? [CR1]
« on: May 25, 2013, 07:28:05 AM »

“D— —– —- AF”

We’re told the “surprise” announcement that we’re told is coming in July is for a new type of autofocus technology. This new AF tech will first appear in the EOS 70D that will be announced soon after.


What exactly the technology is, we don’t know at this time. Although we’re very excited to see if this information is accurate.


More to come….

It also wouldn't be 'new technology'. Witness the EOS 3.

Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

i know it´s not exactly new... but then this is a very vague rumor.

I hope this is a classic Canon announcement and it isn't really "new", just so it will be eye control. I doubt it though.

... a new type of autofocus technology.

Genuinely new or just new for Canon?
Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

Pellicle mirror.

that´s just a semi-transparent mirror and canon has used that in the 60s for metering and later (look at my name ) for focusing.

but the AF is still phase detection.

not sure if canon would call that a new AF....
but then... sensor based phase detection would not be new either.

Some new AF technologies are in prototypes.

There is a new hybrid AF (a combination of phase and contrast af) and a new AF for video making out for testing.

Mmmh... Could it be some video-related stuff? I'm leaning towards a new kind of contrast detect AF or something to replace (or byside) it, rather than something phase detect AF-related.
