Anyone else noticing the dual cards on the 5D III / 7D II?  Exciting!


Looks like it's a new dual card icon that looks somewhat different to the dual CF-CF icon on the vertical grip LCD on 1D X and the dual CF-SD icon on 1D IV.  This new icon on the top LCD looks quite like...........  the new XQD!?   ::) ::) ::)

Note the new dual-card icon looks matching the slimmer rectangular shape of XQD...




Also note that the top LCDs on both 1D X and 1D IV do not have the dual card icon though.

After reading the last 6 pages that appeared since i been on, Has anyone else noticed that the 'dual card' symbol that appears on the LCD is also the same symbol in Blue that is under the Menu button? Im guessing that it doesnt have dual cards now. If it did why would it be paired with a direct print icon?

Ha, you guys beat me to it... I put together this little pic asking the dual CF question as well, but then fell asleep. By the time I came back around all you brilliant folks had already pointed it out... ah well, mayhaps my minor Photoshopings may provide an additional illustrative tool. I boosted the contrast in the LCD of the prototype camera.

Also, people are wondering about the possibility of QXD. While the availability on the D4 might excite that speculation, it certainly appears to me that the "aspect ratio" of the icon at least is the same as that of the CF card on the D1 X. Not that that means much...

There is already a RAW file available in a follow-up post on Aerture Academy, linked in another thread here.

Unfortunately he has only posted the RAW of B3J8584.CR2, while the top LCD info is only visible in B3J8582, which is only available as a JPEG that I could find...

I doubt it would be the case, but if dual cards could be used at 50 or 60 fps, recording every other frame to the other card at a different exposure, that would be a nifty way to do HDR video.

Pull the 2 video files into something and merge them.

Not that that means much...

Well at least it suggests it's a dual card model.  Now the CF card icon reads "1".  Then it makes sense to expect another card icon to read "2", doesn't it?   ::)

If it is indeed a dual card icon, why isnt it similar to the newly released 1DX? and why would there be a button for it on the back of the camera? maybe to select which card?

Dont get me wrong I'm hopping for a dual card 5D, theres just something odd about having that logo as a button.

idk.

It looks pretty similar to me.

I see a box, a number in the box, a line under the box and a triangle to the left of the box.  In both pictures.

Plus, I don't think the icon and the button you mentioned look the same.

Blimey - 26 pages! And counting till the next rumour/ sighting/ announcement

If Canon are watching, they're getting a rough idea of how many 5D3/X's to produce judging by this lot.

All we need now is a picture of a cmaera with 3DX on it, taken by a 36mp Nikon D800 and we've covered all apsects of this sighting  ;)
LOL,love it! +1

To me, the image in blue next to the button with brush symbol suggests review pic before and after (in-camera editing) side by side on Lcd, because the brush symbol suggests some possibility of in-camera editing?!

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?
What is truth?
