The back is very much like the 7D. Perhaps this is the rumoured 6D?

I just realized... The 5DX discussion has merited me about 12 smites in about 36 hours!  ;D

But, back to the camera: why a rating button? How much would people use it? I wouldn't much, likely, but maybe some would?


There have been a bunch of discussion on page 26.

Thanks! I hadn't read that many pages into it/back...
What is truth?

If anyone had bothered to download the CR2 File of the first photo they could clearly see several things:

the aspect ration of the display is 16x9
There are Cinema 1 Cinema2 and Cinema 3 settings on the shooting mode dial.

I think this is clearly an example of the Cinema EOS DSLR in the field.

Aren't those C1, C2 and C3 just a custom-settings? My 7D have those aswell.

That's correct, C1, C2, and C3 are CUSTOM, not CINEMA...

After looking at the photos and trying to determine the amount of vertical squishing of the LCD display caused by the perspective I really don't think the LCD is any where close to 16:9 instead it's closer to 1.4:1 or maybe even 4:3.

If you calculate the number of pixels the known round exposure compensation dial is verticially compared to horizontal you see the camera is squished about 32% vertically.    Also if you compare the camera in picture's dimensions to a 5DmII's actual dimensions (and assume they are the same) you determine about the same squish.   

Measuring the LCD screen in the picture reveals its approximately 137 pixels wide and 63 pixels horizontal.   Taking into account the squish it becomes 137 pixels x 97 pixels or about 1.4:1.

These are all approximations but it's no where close to 16:9.

I might be wrong, but from the looks of the raw file, there doesn't seem to be a battery compartment door on the battery grip. Maybe the batteries load in from the side like the 1D?
I think this is because it looks more ergonomic like the regular horizontal grip so they couldn't put in the normal rectangular grip door.

What do you guys think?

The LCD is the same aspect ratio as the T2i/T3i, 60D and 1DX ... 3:2.
