Canon DSLR Announcement in March? [CR1]
« on: February 19, 2014, 08:03:22 AM »

With Nikon officially announcing the D4S next week, we’re starting to see the usually unreliable mentions of Canon following suit with an announcement of their own. The latest being that Canon will announce a high end full frame DSLR some time in March.


We do not believe a camera above or replacing the EOS-1D X is on the immediate horizon, as we’ve seen a few small marketing campaigns for Canon’s flagship camera. Along with a feature adding firmware update that came out in January.


We’ve been told by a great source that Canon would announce 3 DSLRs in 2014.┬áThe first being the entry level DSLR that was announced last week. The replacement to the EOS 7D Mark II and a third camera that is currently unknown. There is always a chance of adding to the number of cameras in the way of a “development” announcement, but those are always hard to predict.


As always, whenever Nikon does something, there’s always an upturn of Canon speculation.


NAB is coming in April, so I would think Cinema EOS would get an announcement before the EOS line.


More to come.

Ah, finally!! The Canon ti6 with 18mp sensor.  Was waiting 2 weeks for this!

Very unlikely. Although not 100% confirmed, it looks like the specs of the upcoming D4S are beaten on every front by the 2011 1D X.
5D II | 24-70 II | 70-200 II | 100L | 40 | Sigma 50/1.4 | 40D | 10-22 | 17-55 | 580 EX II | 1.4x TC II

Yes, it's likely that the next camera is launched T6i. I just hope it has the same sensor 70D. We've waited so long for 7D mark ii, we should expect some more until Photokina in the second half of the year.

Canon is shrewd when it comes to milking profits from sensors.  Consider that the T5i/700D did not get the latest version of the 18 MP APS-C sensor.  The T5i's sensor has Hybrid CMOS AF (same sensor as the T4i and the EOS M), whereas the sensor used in the SL1/100D and the EOS M2 has Hybrid CMOS II AF (where the phase AF area covers 80% of the frame vs. just the central portion).  That allows Canon to release another T#i-series body with a 'new' (to the line) sensor (but not the 70D's sensor).  Put Digic 6 in there, and they're good to go with the T6i/750D.

I was being factious because of my frustration with Canon.  In truth I think 2014 will be a good year for new hardware.  I know that Canon has cited the 5DIII as one of their current success stories so I don't expect much there.  This might be the 1DX going to 24MP or it might finally be the first of the new sensors.
 I'm probably wrong but I think that the Nikon 800e caught Canon flat footed.  Their sensors ruled the roost for a long time and the 800 was  the point where they knew their current sensors could not continue to compete with the Sony's. Perhaps they were working a new line for a while but the Nikon's with Sony sensors really got their attention.  I'm sure that it takes years and years before a sensor goes from design to profitable production.  Hopefully, Canon is near then end of that cycle and we will see some significant new sensor technology.  Canon has made real improvements everywhere but in sensors. Fortunately, they have held their market share but that can't last forever.  Sony probably has another generation in the pipeline already.

Where are the lenses in a so-called Year of the Lens for Canon? Sigh

You are absolutely right. Canon will not let you get the 70D sensor in a Rebel price camera. The earliest that the 70D sensor migration to Rebel will be T7i. Or if you look at the T4i to T5i change, it will be in T8i. So in 2016.

The replacement to the EOS 7D Mark II and a third camera that is currently unknown.
I'm happy to see that they'll be replacing the non-existent 7D Mark II :o

Darn! I waited 4 years for the camera, and then one morning it came and went and I missed it! Darn!

Digic 6 adds e.g. 1080/60p video recording which the current Canon CMOS sensors apparently do not support, even the G1 X II still has Digic 5. The 700D is really a rebadged 650D so I don't think it not having the latest 18MP sensor means a lot, maybe the "rebel" team was just busy with the 100D.

I own a 5DIII and love it but I shot with a Sony 7R this weekend and the images were just better.  Sharper by a wide margin.  I make big prints and it really shows there.  Maybe I just had a good day and the camera had nothing to do with it?

The G1X II has the Digic 6, not 5 like the original.
