A Canon 44.7MP DSLR at the End of August? [CR1]
« on: July 25, 2013, 08:55:23 AM »
A New 4K DSLR? PB has posted that a new Canon DSLR will be announced at the end of August. It will be 44.7mp and be capable of 4K video recording.

Also from Photography Bay “Additionally, the camera will have a dedicated port for attaching an electronic viewfinder. While the source wasn’t exactly clear on this point, it seems that this may be some type of proprietary connection for attaching a viewfinder or monitor that is not an HDMI or SDI output.”

CR’s Take I don’t see this being true. Everything we’ve been told from known sources is that Canon is done officially announcing DSLR’s in 2013. However, there is always a possibility of a development announcement. I also don’t think they can sell a DSLR for more money than the EOS-1D C and that any large megapixel announcement will not be a Cinema EOS product. They can sell a lot of $6000-$7000 cameras to enthusiasts, $10,000+ is harder to do.

Don't professionals use cameras any more, or are professional photographers now so poorly paid that the really nice gear is for the rich hobbyist?  ???

The photography agencies will buy that stuff, but I really think enthusiasts is where they're making the money on the expensive bodies and big lenses. I can't believe how many $10,000 lenses I see out there.....

I tend to agree, don't see quite so many $10'000 images though!

8K resolution would just fit in the 44.7MP:
Taking into account the 3:2 aspect ratio, it would make a camera of 8192x5460 pixels, allowing
- 2x2 pixel binning for 4K recording
- 4x4 pixel binning for fullHD recording
- full pixel use for 8K imaging

44.7MP sounds too great to be true!

What I am seeing here is baby boomers are heading into retirement and buying this gear like crazy. I never would of thought it. 10,000 is way less than a 30,000 harley?

Plus it's more than Nikon's 36, so all those people whining about resolution can stop buying a d800 and start saving for a 1d ... now we only need to see the dynamic range :-p,  I wonder if Canon's new baby will have raw recording like non-1d bodies with Magic Lantern.

I lol at DRones who forget that 21MP still makes Jumbo sized prints.

At the end of the day, how much more resolution can you get out of a camera?  I doubt double - lens are not THAT great, technique needs to be improved, you will need to work at low(er) ISO, ... Low to mid 30's may be the sweet spot of high MP camera, 45 MP is most likely overkill.

Would you rather have a $6,000 34 MP camera or a $10,000 45 MP camera?

You can get most resolution if you move to a larger format.  :-X

I would guess that you would be in a better position than most to know where this stuff is going.  I think that enthusiasts have always been a huge part of the market along with soccer moms (and dads) on the lower end.

+1 on Canon  Rumors comment.....
Highly overpriced....

The second question should be: Which lens is able to meet this resolution and highlight the theoretical image quality?

You are all wrong.... This will be the 7DII..... and all for less than $1800.00 :)


Seriously though.... All the DSLR's were clustered around 10Megapixels for about 4 years... then we had them clustered around 20Megapixels for about 4 years..... it is conceivable that for the next several years we will be seing them all clustered around 40Megapixels.....

My personal belief is that the 6D2, the 5D4, and the 1DX2 will all be "big megapixel" cameras.
The best camera is the one in your hands

What high res is good for has been gone into in quite detail, it's not only for large print sizes - feel free to read up on that, denying every use for more than 20mp doesn't qualify as "informed" in my book.

As for DRooling DRotographers who want DResperately want more DR: blown highlights are blown highlights at (nearly) at every print or screen size, so I hope Canon won't sacrifice advancements in one area for the other.

I usually don't dabble in reading about DR test charts and viewing blownup 35mm 40x60"s with a loupe. Sorry if I don't fit into that version of "Informed". I didn't mean offend you with my comment, It wasn't directed at you. :P
