Probably the date/time battery.

Is that replaceable on any of the other models?  Don't want to have to keep one sitting around for 3 years (would probably lose it) waiting for the installed one to go bad.  At the same time, would hate to be caught without one when needed.

Nah! This smells of a make up...

"File Formats – AVI, RAW, H.264, MOV, MPEG-4"

That is a mix of video codecs and containers. The only still format listed is RAW... but no JPG? Plus the video and stills specs would be listed separately. Also, Canon would not say 'full HD 1080p', that's not a spec.

I haven't read through the whole thread so forgive me if I'm asking something that has already been addressed.  But is anyone else curious as to the purpose of the CR1616 battery listed in the box contents?  That's a nickle-sized, flat disc type battery.

A CR1616 battery is 16mm in diameter and 1.6mm thick (nominal sizes of course).  A CR2032 is 20mm across and 3.2mm  thick, and so forth for all 3.0v lithium batteries.  CR1025, CR1216, CR1220, CR1225, CR1616, CR1620, CR1632, CR2016, CR2025, CR2032, CR2320, CR2325, and CR2430.

OK, so it's dime size.  Didn't have one in front of me to measure.  Just looked at photo of it when I googled CR1616.

Just a little info.

Ooo, I see +- 3 stops of exposure comp on the top veiw shots... would make for really nice bracketing... did the 5d2/7d have it? i know i'm limited to +-2 on my 50...

also: can someone clear up what dual layer sensor is =/

I believe the 7D has three stop on exposure compensation.

Perhaps this is meant only for video formats, but I highly doubt we'll be able to record RAW. The cards can't handle that data rate. MAYBE we can output RAW via HDMI and record on an external device. That would be pretty much a given for what I expect from this camera.

Couple of things......

1) Anyone notice the Digic 5+ in the specs?? <------  notice the "+"  What's the "+" for compared to the two Digic 5's in the 1Dx?


The Powershots also have the Digic 5, but the 1Dx has Dual Digic 5+, the 5diii has single Digic 5+ I am happy for a single Digic processor for the main Camera (lets the magic lantern guys do some magic on the 5d3 as well, they could never on the dual digics of the 7d).
EOS-5D Mk.iii 
Sigma 24-105mm F4 ART; EF 70-200 F/2.8L Mk.II; EF 100mm L F/2.8 IS Macro, 50mm F/1.8ii;  TC's 2x Mk.iii; 1.4x Mk.iii

In camera RAW processing? Not a deal breaker but occasionally can have its uses.

Canon are bound to have something to announce they've kept under wraps. If not I'll be a tad disappointed even though this promises to be a great camera. I just hope they don't shift the emphasis to movie mode away from stills. I have a horrible feeling they might do this so as not to impact on sales of the 1Dx and to provide an equivalent top flight movie camera that is still within the scope of the enthusiast market.

Having seen what Dig!c 5 can do on a compact the IQ should be asounding on the 5D mark iii.

I think they hit a homerun with this one. There is a solid captive population of MKI and MKII owners whose biggest beef was the autofocus. They have not only given them that they have also given them great native ISO. Very versatile spec. Love it.

dont know if this is answered yet, but as far as i know those kind of batteries are normally used to keep track of the date/time settings in the camera. so you don't have to re-enter the date each time you pull the LP-E6 out of the camera body.
1DX | 1D4 | EF 24-70mm f/2.8L | EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II | EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro | EF 500mm f/4L IS | Extender EF 1.4x III | Extender EF 2.0x III | Speedlite 580EX II | Speedlite 430EX II | Macro Twin Lite MT-24 EX

Yes, you can replace them on all Canon digital cameras.  It's meant to stay in the camera forever until it goes bad, so that you can pull out the main battery without losing the date/time/settings information.

Currently I fail to see any magic in this camera, just as usual Canon's crippled update, whereas the price seems to indicate premium qualities.

In that sense Nikon has clear and understandable distinction - full package in all FF cameras targeting different auditoriums, against Canon's very expensive and crippled expensive option.

Whoa whoa whoa... let's slow down.

I'm not convinced this is an accurate (or at least complete) spec list. We can see from the picture of the top that there's an SD card slot, but that isn't mentioned in the specs.

The bit that says "Dual card slots (CF & SD)" didn't give it away?

I notice that the Austalian pre-order ad that was cited here also mentioned only CF card media.  Only the speculative spec list mentioned SD.

For date/time functions to keep running when you are charging your batteries

Boy, don't I feel stupid  :-\  I've been shooting with a 5DMKII that I bought new a year ago and I swear I don't remember seeing or installing this battery.  But I just looked in the manual and sure enough, there it is on page 217.  Did this come factory installed on the Mark II?

I cant remember right now, and I see the mk3 is rumored to have a more narrow range of ISO in video-mode.
Can anybody tell me what the ISO range (in video mode) is on the 5Dmk2?  I dont have it nearby just now.

I never thought canon would release the 24p firmware. But they did.
Personally I saw it as proof that Canon listens to their customers and work hard to satisfy.
Magic Lantern has done wonders with the first generation of video EOS.
I know it might be unrealistic, but I seriously hope either canon or Trammell Hudson will get the 5D mk3 to run not only 1080p/60 but also 720/120. A dream would be 1080p/120.
Just let me have my hopes :D
I could deal with a sacrifice in bitrate just to make the digic 5+ pump out 120fps in 720p or higher resolution.

Question; Will the Digic 5+ have an easier job downsampling to 1080p (with less moire) when the  new resolution is supposedly the magic number for 3x3 oversampling? Does it mean less processing IQ-wize?

Ive had the old Casio Exilim Ex-F1 for many years now, and that opened up hopes for me. Still havent seen anything remotely close to that in that price range. Sadly the bitrates and resolutions are too low on that cam.
The pricegap is far from the exilim-f1 up to cameras that do the same framerates in better quality, which has had me on edge ever since whenever pretty much any brand releases a new cam.
