New Sensor Technology Coming From Canon? [CR1]
« on: April 29, 2014, 07:23:19 AM »

We’re told by a new source that a new generation of full-frame CMOS sensors slated for both a forthcoming mirrorless camera as well as updated versions of the current range of prosumer DLSR models.


The new full frame sensors are said to have lower production costs. Yields have improved for these sensors when compared to their predecessors, and that has probably lead to the cost reduction in production. There was also a bit of information about the new sensors having Foveon like technology, we’ve asked for clarification on this.


New source, so a big grain of salt for this one is required.

Finally an interesting rumor! Too bad it's only CR1... Hoping there's more to come on this!

Not sure this can even be answered yet but if Canon came out with a full frame EOS-M version, would they need to change to a new lens mount as well? Could the EF-M still be used?

I think this long absence of interesting new products from Canon means that they are making something groundbreaking. Better than us they know that their sensors are outdated

EF- M mount can't be used for FF unfortunately. Too small. Likely they'd create a mirrorless camera with the regular EF mount instead.

Agreed, though the recent DPAF is an interesting new product to my eye.

Better than us they know that their sensors are outdated
Yet still competing with Sony's, and doing even better in some aspects at high ISOs.

I'm hoping it's not only a matter of cost and yield, though welcome. The Foveon-like thingy is intriguing, indeed...

Agree.  This has been a really boring period of time.

Is it April Fool's Day? No!
But I almost feel like, reading this rumor.  >:(

Too much contradictions in it.
Especially the FF mirrorless.  ::)
Foveon like technology and cheaper? Hard to believe.
And just making the sensor cheaper means increasing Canons profit because this will not show in sales price.

So I am about to carry my bucket of salt back home.
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

Hah? How is this been a boring period of time? You can GO OUT and BUY a 70D, 5Dmk3 or 1Dx

Maybe it's boring because we've got great options.

Besides, we haven't heard the REAL details of this rumor yet . . . will it be available in a white body? ;D

There, fixed it for you! ;-)

Kidding! I, for one, don't have a problem with Canon sensors.

OH YES!
Especially if the rumored sensor is any good and does come in a really nice non-mirrorslappin' body.  :P ;D 8)

Well there you go! The reason the 7D2 has been delayed so long is that it will be a full frame mirrorless dual pixel quad pixel fovenon big megapixel camera with a 1DX build in an EOS-M package.... that will shoot at ISO 819,200 and take 8K video.....
