EOS 7D Mark III Coming in March 2018 [CR1]
« on: November 24, 2017, 04:17:45 PM »

We’ve had two people write in telling us that the EOS 7D Mark III is currently scheduled to be announced in March of 2018.


Specifications are scarce, but both sources did claim it will definitely shoot 4K and will come with C-Log. We’ve known (or assumed) that 4K was coming in the EOS 7D Mark III, but this is the first time we’ve heard C-Log mentioned as well.







One of the sources also mentioned “first time sensor technology in a Canon DSLR”. We’re not sure what that is, but it sounds like some marketing speak for the moment.


With the NAB show in April, a March announcement for a DSLR with some higher end video features does make some sense.


Take this with a grain of salt, as it comes from unknown places. As always, we hope to confirm some of these details soon.

I can't see them putting C-Log in it and not the 1DX MkII, and if that got a firmware C-Log upgrade it messes wth the Cinema line. Not that I care as video is of zero interest to me personally, as is a 7D MkIII.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Price for the 7D III? USD 1,900 -2,100??

From the 7dII - Photo mode

Resolution goes to 24mp
+2 maybe 3 on FPS
+1 in DR
built in wifi/bt
faster/more AF points, perhaps a dual pixel step in speed?
might get a very high speed electronic shutter.  Perhaps the same mirror path/machinery as the 5DS/R
Likely will lose the AA filter.

The extra special feature..... In body IS in a DSLR vs. Mirrorless and for all shooting modes not just vid.

As well as, a bunch of software features, perhaps several more presents/programmables and can walk through them like the 1dx.

Video
4k, full sensor, 30/60, perhaps time lapse w/ variable bit rates (something akin to Nikons 8k time lapse mode)

Hybrid optical finder w/ lots-o- overlays.

Way too much gear to list, terminal GAS.  Grand kids will have to buy their own cars.

This is a body I'm very excited about. If Canon can put something solid together, with 4k, better DR, and a solid build, I'd be stoked.

I’m not stoked. Losing all interest in APS-C.  Full frame is in my future.  😤

At this point Canon simply can't do anything to make photogs stop switching to Sony. Can it?

Given the actual sales figures we end up seeing I'm sure Canon and it's share holders will be happy to continue the current trajectory of Sony, Nikon and Canon sales in both DSLR's and MILC's. You do know Canon sell more DSLR's and MILC's than Nikon and Sony combined?

That first time Canon DSLR sensor tech may just be IBIS. Wouldn’t that be good!

It isn't going to happen. For better or worse Canon went the lens stabilization route, and they have said many times they see IS per lens a better solution than IBIS.

+1

Also, considering the fact that IBIS is most useful at shorter focal lengths, and the 7D-series is weighted toward longer focal lengths, it seems like misplaced additional cost and complexity.

Y.A.P.O.D.F.C.

The only market share Sony is taking is Nikon's. Canon is seeing consistent growth in all sectors.

Dual Pixel AF still makes Canon one of the most popular choices for video. In another five years I'm sure they'll have something else that the competition can't hope to compete with.
Camera bodies are temporary, glass is forever.

I still don't see any serious pro sports photographers shooting sports events from the sidelines with Sony gear.
