5D Mark III Brief Specs? [CR1]
« on: January 26, 2012, 06:48:20 PM »
From Aquatech On the Aquatech Facebook page, they have said the 5D Mark III will be 22mp and shoot at 7.5fps. They say it’s “directly from Canon”.

A few issues I have with this.

  • Housing companies are notorious for “leaking” information for traffic, which I just did.
  • Any old staff member may have updated the Aquatech status.
  • NDAs exist with third party manufacturers.

It could be legit. I’ve heard 21-22mp a lot. The frames per second is a new one.

thanks Zac

Can someone explain why Canon would provide any information to a waterproof housing manufacturer in advance of the release of a new camera, other than detailed engineering drawings and specifications for the external dimensions and button placements on that camera?

Regardless of whether this rumors is valid or not, all the recent rumors that the 5DIII will remain in the 21-22 mp range sounds logical. To me, that implies that it will be an evolution of the current 21 mp sensor, which makes perfect sense. The 5DII has a badass sensor and overall IQ that's still on par with the best offerings on the market.

All Canon has to do with the 5DIII is slightly improve the DR and ISO, while substantially improving the AF, and it will have a winner on its hands.

I was just thinking that myself... But I would be very impressed if their technicians could work out the sensor resolution and frame rate from this information!

As a Florida Scuba Photographer, I would think in order to build a watertight case they would need to have the model on hand. Building cases have to be perfect so that you can maintain button functionally and a perfect fit to seal the case.

just my thoughts anyways

Match this with a pro level AF system and it will be simply irresistible!

One would think that it would have to be an actual working model in order to do testing as well.

It has the potential of being true. We know the model is out being tested, why not supply it to the companies that create waterproof cases for them?

Apple does it when they release a new iPhone, they give a model to Otterbox so that the day it goes on sale you can order the protective casing at the same time.

I suppose the other question is, will we see the 24-70 II announced at the same time?

The odds have got to be getting better on that, especially if there is talk of a 5D3/24-70II kit...

I'm curious to see what type of AF system they'll have to go with that 7.5fps. If it's anywhere close to a 19 point system, that would further imply that there may in fact be a 7D/5D amalgamation. I know, I know. They need an APS-C.... EF-S.... blah blah blah. Time will tell.

Here's my "top secret" leaked spec list.

The 5DII replacment body will be:
Black or black-ish
Take still pictures, and probably video
Will most likely not use film
If digital, I have it on good authority the sensor will be larger than m4/3, but smaller than 645
Feature Auto-Focus
Will probably be EF mount
Will almost certainly be branded as Canon
Might have some type of removable flash memory based medium for picture storage
Will prominently feature button(s) <-note the plural, for key functions like taking a picture or changing setting

You heard it here first folks...   ::)

Damn housing companies.  Publishing speculative information that is not confirmed!  Reminds me of another site I frequent...  Hummmm...
