5D Mark III [CR1]
« on: December 25, 2010, 08:16:47 PM »
First 5D Mark III Spec List.

  • 28 megapixel
  • 2 Stop Noise Improvement
  • 63-segment metering
  • 1920×1080 30/25/24 frame Video
  • RAW Video
  • CES Announcement

CR’s Take I posted this because it seems like a rumor that may spread around the web.

It’s highly unlikely Canon will introduce a 5D Mark III at CES.

The problem with the 2 stop noise improvement is that, like the 1D MK IV, it probably represents a noise improvement in jpeg images due to improved in camera processing.  We'd be lucky to get a 2/3 stop noise improvement in RAW.

Any chance of the Mk III being $2500 USD or less when it comes out or should I expect to pay around $3k for just the body?

RAW video is a nerds wet dream. 104Mb/s+ from a DSLR body ? Right.

nork, to be frank, your guess is just as good as anybody else's here.  nobody can even tell you for sure when a 5DIII will be released, nor what its specifications are, so I find it highly unlikely that anyone can give you even a remotely accurate picture of what the pricing on the camera will be.

Yeah, whilst canon DIGIC chips have lots of processing power, there is no way in hell they are capable of RAW output. Not to mention what I think is even more important: a DSLR is a stills camera. Why would canon try to make such a huge effort (raw video) for a stills cam?

Let them focus on more important dSLR issues, before anything video related.

RAW output mean less processing, but higher bandwith requirements.

This rumour is nearly there, but misses a few of the basic rules of made-up rumours; here's my take on how to make one up:

Canon 5D MkIII to be announced early 2011

28MP -new breakthrough in S/N for Canon
4fps
1920×1080 30/25/24 frame Video with manual audio levels, peaking and zebras
3:2 aspect ratio tilt/swivel screen
63 segment iFCL meter
Same AF as the 5D MkII -Canon believe that most users were satisfied with AF performance
+ a new feature for Canon EOS cameras

First, you must keep the date vague for a bit of longevity -if you give an exact date that is only weeks away you'll be quickly disproved. 

Note how an effective made-up rumour combines the believable (and totally expected) specifications with those that will cause excitement such as the S/N ratio BS (the video stuff that I don't really understand, but is easy to lift from any internet wish list). 

The controversial features need to be included: a tilt/swivel screen will split opinion between the 'must have for video' crowd and the 'likely to break and so not professional' elements.  I've gone out on a limb with the statement that it will keep the 5D MkII's AF system; most people would find it incredulous that Canon would keep the most critisied feature of the MkII.  Then again we've been shafted by Canon on so many previous occasions that the seed of disappointment will already be in their minds. 

Finally, you need to give a mystery feature -this both invites speculation as well as covering you against major new features that you missed.

1st post here. I enjoy the rumor stuff :)


I guess the following:

28/32MP CMOS Sensor
ISO from 100 and up to 102400 and one stop better than the Mark II (Native from 100 to 25600 ISO)
19 Points AF a la 7D
Flash and wireless trigger
Same screen as 550D
4.5 FPS
100% viewfinder
Digic V (just one)
Same Battery as 5D Mark II
Digital Level option
Still with Compact Flash but there will not be double Card reader.
Dedicated Video Button
Improved Auto ISO
Auto HDR
Video as usual with some few improvements to get rid of the jelly effect

I believe Canon will forget about the forced ISO 50 for once even if sometimes is helpful.


$3000 Price Point.

I agree that it is unlikely, however, no one yet knows what the next new generation of digic processors can do.  However, Red cameras have had RAW output, so it is possible if it is a priority.

Why would Canon want to do it?  Sales is the answer.  Sales of the 5D MK II far exceeded their forecasts, and professional videographers are using it for commercial videos.  They do not buy just one, but by the dozen.

The potential for sales is not lost on Canon.

What is your basis for saying that?

I have the feeling (Ie. don't have facts to back it up), that dSLR use for videography is still very very niche... it is catching on.. but im not convinced its a big chunk of sales as of yet
