EOS 70D a New Benchmark in ISO Performance?
« on: July 01, 2013, 10:19:55 AM »

We’ll know tonight

We’ve received word that the new Canon EOS 70D which is right around the corner will set the benchmark for ISO performance from a crop camera.


That bit of information will make a lot of people happy, as it may mean Canon is ready to make a jump back into the top end of sensor and processor development.


We should be seeing sample images within the next 24 hours.

This is great news.  I wouldn't mind having a crop body again for my longer lenses when I need reach, but I sold my 60D after I found that I was no longer reaching for it because I just didn't feel the IQ compared to my FF bodies, particularly when the light started fading.

Well, that ought to DRum up some DRead from the DRoll DRones who DRool over DR, and DRag many a forum thread down the DReary path of DRivel, DRaining into puddles of DRoss.

We'll know soon if it's just for jpeg images (i.e., MORE NR) or true RAW files.

Anyway, I'm more curious if Canon has made any progress in the low ISO DR arena.

I agree it might make a great backup body when more reach is needed.

Sounds exciting, but what does it mean? Clean at 12000 or 25000? Or even higher? Sounds promising for the 7D MII

Interesting, if this is indeed the case, coupled with the 19pt AF, this could be a worthwhile replacement to the current 7D. I can live with a lower frame rate if the rest is up to par.

What does it mean? Hopefully, it means that Canon has rolled out a new generation of sensor manufacturing that will carry forward to the next generation 1D and 5D bodies. Also, the long rumored high megapixel camera may be useful beyond the studio.

I'm waiting for the Nattering Nabobs of Negativism Band of Banding-Hunting Brothers to mention that it has obvious pattern banding at +10stops DEC & +1000 fill-light, as confirmed by Professor Professorson, PhD E.E., when pixel-voyeured at 800%...

Sounds very exciting!  Will be very interested to see what it can do, though tbh, I'm usually quite happy with pictures from my 400D, so I guess this'll be a great surprise.

Do you have any idea what sort of time the announcement is going to be made?  I'm never sure what determines which country makes the announcements of products, so can't really make a guess!  I'm going to be working all night here though, so hopefully will be able to keep an eye on the news to see it :)
