5D Mark III Information [CR1]
« on: November 29, 2011, 09:59:28 PM »
5D Mark III Information? It’s mentioned that a 5D Mark III will be aimed at “cleaning up” the DSLR video market. It will complement the 1 series video DSLR mentioned at the recent Hollywood Cinema EOS presentation.

The camera will be no more than 18mp. It was mentioned not to expect a big mp camera from Canon in the immediate future.

No more than 18mp? It sounds like a freaking good news to me.

Does [CR1] mean "very-implausible information", or just "wishlist" these days  :P  ::)

It means I don't know who said it, and I sourced the first place it appeared on the web. :)

I welcome our new 18 MP high iso overlords. I could really use some more iso, as long as the camera is definitely 18 MP. I can't do with less than 18.

i personaly dont really mind more megapixels however seeing the lenses at the moment cant deliver enough detail for the 18+ mp sensors its a good point to stick to 18MP sensors for a year and perfect those.
maby if they find a way to imporve lenses further there is a point in adding more megapixels for this cheapass cropfreak.

Waiting for these rumours to come with an ETA for the 5D3.

Don't want to shell out $2500 on another mk2, if the new model is due March 2012.

I can go without for another 3 months if these rumours are true. :)
Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

I find it interesting that in 2007 Canon developed a 50MP sensor, then a 120MP sensor in 2010, and in 2011 they seem to be saying fewer MP's are better. Why even work on multiple proof-of-concept sensors like that if the concept is inherently flawed? I think we are being fed some marketing lines (again).

In my film days I never shot higher than 800 ISO and more commonly shot 200 or less. I did, however, shoot 8x10 film partly out of a desire for higher resolution. Is the market really clamoring to shoot in a dark closet, or is that just the next Nikon rivalry now that Canon can make APS-H sensors with 120MP?

It is my hope that after developing the C300 and EOS C, that Canon will get back to making still cameras that focus on photographing stills.

Hmm...not sure if the "cleaning up the DSLR video market" is encouraging for a 5Dm3 replacement or not. I primarily shoot still's, and while a reduce MP might be fine (as long as I get even better high ISO performance), if it's aimed more at video and less at stills (hello, we need a good auto-focus system!!!), than not sure I like the idea of it. Unless they introduce a new FF stills camera that maybe does some video as well.

Just get it OUT already! And make the auto focus work at least as well as a point and shoot (for a change).
