New Full Frame Camera in Testing? [CR1]
« on: May 27, 2014, 05:08:23 PM »

A mention on Northlight about someone from Canon apparently visited a few studios in the New York City area recently with a “test” camera in an EOS-1D X body. Images had to be processed and viewed on a particular laptop and none of the images could be copied or kept.


The image files were very similar in size to the EOS 5D Mark III’s 22mp files, but exhibited “much” better colour accuracy and detail. This camera is supposedly for later this year or early next year.


Could this be a replacement to the EOS-1D X, or an introduction of a new camera such as the rumor favourite EOS 3D?

It will be interesting to see how "much better" you can get with the colours?
If you debate with a fool onlookers can find it VERY difficult to tell the difference.

Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be out of my price range  :P   Maybe Sigma has given Canon a swift kick to start innovating.  Can't wait to see it though.

I use a color checker passport and it does amazing things. To able to drop that tweak will reduce noise quite a bit, I'm all for it. There's a good difference between the 5d3 and 1dx also, so if they really keep pushing for accurate color I'm very happy with that.

Looking forward to see what this is all about... :)

Test camera? Or test sensor? Or test processor?

Whatever they might be testing, it has to be put into a body to test it. Makes sense to use the 1D body for testing, but who knows how or when or even if, it might ultimately be implemented.

Could this refer to new and highly advanced sensor tech?

The color accuracy of the 1Dx actually isn't all that great.  It's nothing compared to the 1Ds Mark III.

This.

I have a 5D3 and two 1Ds3 cameras. There is so much to still love about the 1Ds3 over the 5d3. Colour accuracy and image cleanliness definitely among them.

 :o Ouch!  I just bought a 1DX last week!  I love it like all the others but do see room for improvement.  It is much better than I thought it might be so I'm going to sell my trusty 1D4 and 6D. (Keeping the 5D3 until a replacement is announced that).
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

WOOHOOO!

That, as I have bored many of you with, would be my dream camera, 24-28MP with a better sensor in a 1 series body.

Fingers crossed on this rumour, it would also be another interesting differentiator between the high MP Nikon bodies.

As for colour, in a studio environment particularly, there is no excuse for inaccurate colours already, though it is surprising the number of people, high end pros included, that just don't understand camera profiles, profiling, and a decent colour managed workflow, what are their assistants doing?

P.S. There have been so many 1DX deals around recently there might be a little more to this rumour than most, I'd love to know the fps, if it is aimed as a 1DX MkII it can't be slower than currently. If the 1DX truthfully was an amalgamation of the 1D and 1DS lines then it is high time for a camera with better "studio" specs than the 1Ds MkIII, if that got a high frame rate too it would be THE generalists tool. No more lenses for me this year  :'(

same image size, much better color, more details... well could be foveon like sensor.
could also be a better bayer sensor.

big question is....are they talking about JPG or RAW....

Cool a better camera than the 1dx.  Get ready for a 9000.00 camera body.
