More New Full Frame Rumors [CR1]
« on: September 19, 2011, 10:16:36 AM »
I received two other emails today talking about what could be coming in October from Canon.

According to one of the emails:

Canon will be launching a new camera later in October. Already in production and described internally as a “Nikon-killer”, it is reportedly a camera with lower megapixels than might be expected for a new release, but with excellent dynamic range and ISO performance.

No one has come forward in the last while to say a new 1Ds Mark IV or 5D Mark III were in the immediate pipeline, for the moment this appears to be it.

That is a rumor I hope becomes true......While I absolutely appreciate that some, especially pros, would love some of the 1Ds specs that have been floating around, increasing DR and ISO performance targets all users.  And a less than expected megapixel count (15-25MP?) with increased DR and ISO performance I think may hit the broadest market and happens to include me  ;D.  This fits nicely with a number of the rumors we are hearing....

If near true, this sounds a lot like the kind of camera I have been wanting since I figured out that I wanted an FF body.

At least if the viewfinder is decent. Good DR and ISO performance sounds good enough. Makes me wonder a bit over the sensor technology, though. Will it be a backlit FF sensor or what?

I've always said I was happy with 21mp...just better high ISO performance and DR in a 1D body.

Backlit sensors are only most effective on P&S, too tired to explain why. also, agree that DR and ISO are two things I care about the most. I would even sacrifice ISO for more DR. More or less megapixels don't really matter to me as long as the IQ is good.

Also, no more of that 98% viewfinder bullshit in the 5D series.

Interesting... "lower megapixels than might be expected" doesn't necessarily mean lower than what we have now, just not as much an increase as some might have expected. It could still be anything above what we already have...

Too vague: there is more than one Nikon camera this could compete with
Also high wishlist content, the wishlist being that of those who believe that higher pixel count is detrimental to better IQ

(and it could as pointed out still be a 5D# with 25MP when 30 has been rumored or a 1Ds# with 40 where 54 was the recent rumor)

7D + FF @21MP + DR + ISO + Better In Camera Image Processing + Less noise all across the board + Top Video = Nikon Killer?

To say that it's a Nikon killer, one must first see what Nikon has coming. I doubt anyone at Canon has had the Nikon sensor for a side-by-side comparison.

"Nikon Killer"?
I guess they must mean 2009 Nikon technology killer (I think the D3s was released in 09).

Nikon is likely also working a better sensor then the one in their D3s... So this sensors many not be a Nikon killer for too long.
