Two New Full Frame Cameras in 2014? [CR1]
« on: November 28, 2013, 07:45:09 AM »

Two new full frame cameras coming?

We see talk of two new full frame cameras coming in 2014 with availability in the early part of 2015. It’s mentioned that the EOS 5D Mark III would move up the spec ladder once again, but wouldn’t be the camera for “total image quality”. That would be saved for studio based EOS-1 body that is coming next year.


There is no chance of an EOS-3D according to this report. Although medium format is “still an option”.┬áThis information apparently comes from a higher end dealer presentation that occurred in Japan.


This is the first mention we’ve seen for an EOS 5D Mark IV. If two new full frame cameras are on the horizon and one is an EOS-1DXs type of body, what could the other one be? I’m willing to wager the EOS 6D won’t be replaced before the EOS 5D Mark III or EOS-1D X.


I assume he above report doesn’t consider the Cinema EOS branded EOS-1D C as one of the “full frame” cameras.

If it does materialize, I guess AvTvM will be happy ... but then, maybe not because it will be made by Canon :P

Two new FF in 2014 ... Availability in 2015? so basically only announcements for two FF in 2014  :(

I guess we'll have the "Canon is doomed" trolls having a field day

Well, I'll take this cautiously... does not affect us after all... YET. At least me, I am still holding to a EOS 5D mark II and if I get a grant or project (I am a researcher who just got his PhD) I will upgrade to 5D III or a APS-C second body.

If the "entry level" EOS 6D was about 2000 euros at launch, I dont know what these cameras will cost.... Prepare your wallets!  ;D

Cheers from Finland!

Well, it will be intresting how the 5DIV turns out spec wise. My 5D3 does very well so far. But I would be glad to see some nice improvement in high ISO IQ beyond 25k. Then I would gladly look forward to an eventually much more improved 5DV in about 5 years from now.

OR: if the 5DIV moves further up the specs ladder, could this mean:
1DXs US$ 8.5k
1 Dx US$ 7 k
5DIV (at the price of  1DIV) US $ 4.5k
6DII (revamped, new 5D3ish cam?) US $3.5k
xD Full frame Rebel? US$ 1.9k

Time will tell

I am 90% certain one of the FF cameras is for film.

PS: This is a NL rumor, so take it with a huge grain of salt.

But if I look on the camera market it is possible that we will see a mirrorless FF camera or a new video FF DSLR with CFast card slots in 2014.

a canon manager just said there is no mirrorless FF or retro camera planed.

so no.. a FF mirrorless is very unlikely in 2014.

At this point, I'm completely satisfied with the MK3. What I'd like is some new lenses.

Prepare your wallets! 

Isn't that the truth.

I certainly don't really follow the 'bleeding edge' of the camera curve, with the possible distant exception of mirrorless - I am intrigued why we still have mirrors, at it would appear the those days are numbered - perhaps a larger number than I would like but numbered none the less.

I am hoping for a highly competent "M2" either FF or APC  If one thinks of the camera body as the sensor,cpu,battery, human interface to the glass tube called a lens... why does it have to be sooo big and shaped the way it is?  Why can't small work?  why not shape it like a reversed "L" with the controls extending similar to a video camera??? (tradition & convention I got that but...)

Hold your hands up to your face and mime short lenses and long ones (when I do it I find myself instinctively tilting my head so that my right arm is braced against my body -i.e. pre I.S. oooff I am old) and see what is truly comfortable and relaxed.

left hand under the lens, right hand???? switches around a bit depending on the available real estate.

Just things to ponder -

To get me upgrade to 5D Mark IV, Canon needs to have these:

1. One full stop better in high ISO
2. 8-10 fps (even when the battery at 3/4 or half left)
3. Tries not to sell @ $4000 from beginning, then, drops to $2500 few months later
Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 400L f2.8 IS II

The 5D3 will be 2 years old next March, which isn't that far away. We can likely assume that there will be at least an announcement of a 5D4 later on in 2014, can we not? Isn't that one of the full frames? The other would be the high megapixel studio beast 1DXs.

3 years does seem kinda short for the 5D line to be upgraded though. 2 years seems very unlikely so I think we can rule out a 5D4 coming next year!

Could there be something FF that we haven't seen before? What could that be? I just want this year to end so I can find out already!  ;D
5D II | 17-40L | 24-105L | 70-200 f4L IS | 135L | SY 14mm f/2.8 | Sigma 50 f/1.4

EOS M | 22 f/2 | 11-22 IS

That last point was completely avoidable, If you bought from BVI. :)
