Canon Testing a 75+ Megapixel EOS-1 Body? [CR1]
« on: July 21, 2013, 04:01:28 PM »

The big megapixel camera gets bigger!

Photography Bay is reporting that a good source of theirs has told them that Canon is actively testing a 75+MP EOS-1 DSLR camera body.


I don’t find anything surprising in the megapixel count, as Canon has announced enormous megapixel sensors in the past. However, this is the first I’ve heard of an actual product using image sensors with this much resolution.


Previous rumors have placed the “big megapixel” camera from Canon in the 40-50mp range.


We do expect such a camera to make its way to us sometime in 2014.

That would take one hell of a combination of lens, photographer and conditions to make full use of all those megapixels.

With dual Digic 6+, it might even hit 3 fps...   ;)

Maybe it has 1/32000s shutter speed and built-in gyropod.

No, no, you should wait for the 75+MP EOS-1 MKII   ;)

Ha, if the new canon lenses can hold up to a 75mp sensor, then you could shoot wide portraits at 75MP and crop closeups at 20-25mp. Could sort of become for photographers what 4k is for video people delivering at 1080.

9 years ago I got an 8 megapixel DSLR and was amazed at how big the images were and the detail involved. 8 was a big thing! Now I have 18 megapixels.... it's about time for ALL DSLR's to take a jump up.... 40 is the new 20... but 75!, that sounds like an attack on medium format.

... or 75/2 = 36 million image pixels with Dual Pixel AF  ...

But 75 million image pixels / 4 means roughly 18 Mpix full color (R-G-G-B) pixels - not too bad for certain situations.

Just some ideas about a product that still doesn't exist on the market, will perhaps never exist and if, it is to expensive for me.

That's true and just today I am amazed by the 10 MPix of the 40D ... just a good beamer/monitor with at least 5 or 6 MPix is still missing/not available for mortals! What a mismatch between cameras and output devices ...

I upgraded yesterday from Pentium 4 3GHz-PC to a Core i7 CPU-Machine: What a progress ... its computing power is great but data transfer might become a bottleneck during backup etc. ...

Don't forget the 70D.   This may be a 37.5 Mp camera with dual pixels.   Use different exposures on each half-site, and you get expanded DR 14bit or 16 (like the ML trick).

Canon could also bin the pixels normally, but for tele, if cropping is desired, the unbined version could be selected (sort of like the Nokia purview).

Another alternative is lens correction. Due to the high sampling, distortion, CA, etc. can be corrected first with little loss before downsampling for storage.

Lots of things that can be done.
