I vote 1ds mk4 do I know what I'm talking about? No, but hey it's possible right? Maybe Canon has took all the qualities of the 1d bodies mixed them with the 1DX, 5d 7d sized body to allow max portability! Is this even plausible who knows, but I'm just a realistic talking fish head.

Man, we really need to get Philip Bloom in here to tell us what camera this is!   ;D

Wow, so many responses in such a short amount of time!  What a great day for the rumor mill!

Maybe a 4DX or 2DX?

I have to say - this is looking less like a 5DII replacement and more like a 3D/4D/6D/etc. - something in the $4K price range, not a $2.5-3K 5DIII.

It is doubtful that there would ever be a "4D" from Canon, because in Japanese, the word "four" sounds like the word "death."  It is considered unlucky.  That being said, the next 5D is "overdue," so I doubt it would be anything other than a 5D III or 5D x.  I also think that something "above" the 5D line, such as the mythical 3D, would not have the dial on top.

Has a joystick on the battery grip...

The addition of the joystick on the vertical grip means that the batteries will no longer load via the back.  This annoys me on the BG-E6, because it makes the finger hold on the grip thicker and squared off, which is difficult to hold.  Hopefully, this means the batteries will go in the side, similar to the 1D line, perhaps with a tray that holds 2 of the LP-E6 (or newer) batteries.  This would allow the vertical finger grip to be rounded off, just like the horizontal grip! :D

 Hey this means more people can afford a gluttony of full frame  coveted 5D mkiis and the already affordable fantastic 7D! For me that means a buyer for my nearly new canon 5d mkii that has less than 1k photos due to my damn urge to switch :( and since I fall in the Romney 15% bracket despite earning just $72k this year?! Hopefully I won't need to pay much and therefore buy this new toy and enable a real photographer the ability to afford a real decent 5D MKII! I am an enthusiast but I pride myself in trying to achieve high quality fully capable photos when possible, and despite my like of manual focus lenses, and caffeine induced hands, I think I do pretty well, will I ever shoot a award winner, or national geographic photo with my high end toys, no, but dang it I still try! Fwiw I feel having high quality gear is very crucial even if you are not capable as I think it's designers did very well in making sure most people can achieve excellent results. Does this mean that a Leica in the hands of the novice could shoot pulitzers? No not really, but if they try just a little they can achieve high quality results! I have owned many Zeiss lenses after selling and buying back due to their high abilities, and I know that zeiss is highly capable even if I'm not, just ask the resident Dr. Here and they'll share zeiss lab stories. I'm off to save more to get another Zeiss back, but in the mean time my samyang 35mm 1.4 is really nice for its price! I do need an autofocus ASAP, plus learn how too use the other settings aside from m mode all the time!

Not cool man, I think this guy has had enough invasion of privacy for one week.  You never know what kind of trolls will see this, you're familiar with trolling...aren't you?


No but it seems that your are.
BTW: This info is on the guy's website, so even for no trolls like me it wouldn't be that hard to find that.

Maybe they will announce it during the CP+ show in Japan next month? Could this be a possibility?

At the moment i think is more plausible to say that the 5dmk3 will be there, then the d800.

So help me out, in this original blog he is shooting with two different cameras. If one is the 5DX or 7Dmkii, what is the other one he is shooting with?

As stated several times in this thread alone, the other body is in fact the Canon 1DX ...

I don't know why you can't have both...
a 5D3 with pro AF (not as good as the 1DX) high-ish mpx, dual card, 5 fps, FF of course...

and a 7D2 with the same AF (wider coverage, since it's aps-c), dual card, lower mpx than the 5D3 and 7-8 fps...

basically the same camera, the difference would be just the sensor.. that way you could satisfy both camps.

The difference of the 1DX and the 5D3 would be fps, megapixels (5D3 would have more), AF, high ISO performance and weather sealing...

what I'd really like is the fuji x-pro 1 sensor pixel pattern thing..  that would eliminate the need for the AA filter.. now that would be a real improvement (I know that it's impossible)

It better be a 5d Mark II , not a crossover, because if this is a crossover 5D/7D, it will completely ruin both cameras!!!

BTW: Am I the only one wish AF in video mode from new 5d?

It seems very strange to me people actually think the 5d will have "pro-AF" or something of the sort, and 6-8 fps? And higher res? And you excpect not to pay for it, 2-3k range. Jeez...

Why would anyone buy the 1d X if the the "5dX" has 8 fps at 25 mp with one stop more noise and 7d AF???

If anyone would want to buy a 5d, then you better hope it doesn't have that stuff, because it would be MUCH more expensive than the curent 5d.

A fullframe 7d?! it's still called 1d X, they won't make a cheaper fast fps FF with great AF for half the price of an X.

7d with with aps-h sensor? The main group of people buying ef-s lenses are 7d owners. (At least from my experience working in a shop that sell this sort of stuff) And Canon wouldn't want to sacrifice all those lens-sales by making the ef-s's unusable on a 7d.

And if a 5d3 or 7d2 will get some very cool features not in the 1d X, I will be veryvery upset. The 7d made my mk4 look old when they introduced the new menu-layout, Q-button, zone AF, spot-af (with all lenses) and a dual-cross centerpoint.

I feel like when I'm buying a 7000 dollar camera, it should be top of the line in every aspect for at least two years. It should be dripping from the 1d to the 5d and 7d, not the other way around.
