From NL: NDAs expiring on the 2nd of March
« on: February 21, 2012, 07:40:41 AM »
Over at NL we read:

"20th We've hearing of NDAs expiring on the 2nd of March.
Now we also hear of a 5D3 (and only a 5D3) spec for a launch on the 2nd
22MP, 6fps, 61 focus points (41 cross) same as 1DX system
100-25600 Basic ISO 1024k dots LCD display 3:2 wide (or 3.2" ?)
Best Video quality in a DSLR.
After several different suggestions pointing to the start of March I'm wondering if we will indeed get an announcement on the 2nd. Fridays are not a traditional day for announcements, but perhaps we will see a 5D3 celebrating 25 years of EOS?"

I read this last night (UK time).

For me, those are desirable specs - if dual CF card slot is added and that nice BG.
As has been pointed out, it is only a week away, so we are likely to get a lot more leak out before then.

I appreciate CR guy is in Ecuador testing his new 5D3/X  :) :) - but he has remained some what quiet over the last few days, posting non '5D' stuff almost as a diversion.

I'm hoping he's enjoying those 30+mp pictures from his 5DX and that 1DX AF on his 5D3  8)

Bet he'll be back for next week just as it all gets really busy.

I appreciate CR guy is in Ecuador testing his new 5D3/X  :) :)


Unfortunately according to CR's Facebook post dated, Feb 20, 2012, 2:12 PM (Central) it looks like he had to cut his trip short.

"Leaving Ecuador tonight to attend to a matter at home, disappointed, but I'll be back."

Oh, that's not good - let's hope it's only Canon wanting their cameras back.  :-\

... Best Video quality in a DSLR ...

Assuming the 5D III will be announced in the next month or two, would Canon really trump the video on the 1D X before its release?

Possibly - Canon themselves said that there were compromises to the video from the 1DX - it is a sports photographers camera in part - the Ethernet port had a trade off in terms of connections for video - and this was said at the time of launch.


1/2 March aligns v. well with anniversary dates, and NL is saying it confidently about NDA - there should be some people with NDA's that can at least head nod to the date of NDA lifting if asked.

With that in mind - if McNally, Mautner and others were the Nikon release photogs - who would be drumming the photography kit beat for Canon on the 5D Mark III launch?
With that ethernet port not needed as  much as other features in the 5D mk III, they could give some better video features there in terms of I/O ports (and there is improvement to be made on the 5D, see what the D800 has for a starter).

With only a little over a week until March 2, the specs from leaks will firm up.  The NL rumored specs are exactly what I have been anticipating, similar sensor, 1/2 - 1 stop better high ISO in raw(something I implied from the jpeg rating of 25600), and better autofocus. 

If Canon is going to stick to the same original price of $2800, we are not going to see a revolution, more like a FF 7D set of features.

I'd order one immediately, merely because I can't justify a 1DX.

Of course they would since the $7000 1DX isn't so much the cheap little video DSLR and once you add things to make it work better the price on it becomes quite high. They need a 5D2-type cam with top video. The 1DX  is about super speed for stills, for sports, PJ work and then it also has nice video which is important. But it doesn't rely on video to sell. If it needs to then it is already something they should give up on on an not even bother releasing.
