Imagine if all of the $3500 of the mkIII was for simply stills capable camera, and absolutely NO video!?!?!? They should've done one for stills ONLY and one for stills and video, and one for video . . . from the start. . . or howver the hell they want to go about it. . . . but we all know how marketing sucks in all the fish in the sea, especially the ISO wars, as an example.

Orion, I dare say a vast vast majority of that $3500 is still photography related since the video features weren't improved at all (aside from some compression choices). Canon's video implementation has been paid for many times over with the 5DII and the 7D. And considering (from what I've heard) the 50D can shoot video with a firmware adjustment (maybe Magic Latern?) I don't think there is much extra inside to make it possible.

Odds are the $3500 comes from the tons of money Canon has put into the 61-point AF system and they haven't made a dime off of it yet.


Yeah, I would agree with that but it does not change the fact that the video option tech has made dslrs more expensive . . but by how much is not known. Even though I edit video like a "pro" and love shooting video, it just goes against the grain a bit when we get a new dslr and it's not mostly about photography, as in the old days with film . . . it would really be a studio camera of sorts.

With the new "C" line we have seen glimpses of, I would've loved for THAT to result in a plain ol stills camera, with the "C" camera left for both stills and video for that market where video is more important than photos.

I guess I'm trying to think of how I would run the business if I owned Canon. . . . it would make more sense to me to have a stills camera only (studio type AF/ISO/DR monster), and then a video and stills dslr focussed more on video with the ability to shoot/convert video frames to stills . . . . I know that what I am saying isn't indicative of the briughtest gem in the lot, but it's open for refinement ;) Don't mind me. . ..

Well, let's see: When the 5D came out it started at $3,299. I'm not sure if that includes a lens or not honestly, but I don't think it matters. The 5DII came out and sold body only for $2,699. So Canon managed to add video and higher res sensor but make the camera cheaper? Then when the 5DIII comes we are back up to $3,499.

I really don't think you can blame video for all that. I can agree that the 5DIII is priced higher than it should be, however.

If there photographer/economists out there that have a info on this that I'm missing I welcome it.

Could be high MP too imho

I doubt this will be high mega-pixel. If anything it will be a low mega-pixel because the higher the mega-pixel, the more the image has to be downscaled to video which makes it for worse video.

Plus, most video people don't really need high megapixels.

Here is a link with more information on the upcoming release of the EOS 4k with lenses and a brief statement on the 5DX. http://bit.ly/HsGi58

 
The site starts with a obvious misstatement saying that Canon has confirmed a announcement at NAB.  Canon has confirmed nothing!  Ask them, look at their press releases!
 
Now, there was a invite sent out, but it said nothing about announcing a new product, thats merely a assumption, probably a good one, but not a confirmation.
 
I certainly would not take anything else they say as fact, just their guessing like all the rest of us.  This is journalism at its worst, claiming to be news, but made up news and rumors.

At that link as well as over at nikon rumors, there is talk of D3200, the entry level DSLR. Rumor is that it will have a 24 MP sensor. Entry level market is important as most of the time people stick with the brand once they get the first camera...

Wonder whether there is any word on 650D or 1200D...

4k video, mirrorless FF 40MP plastic light-weight low-end dslr with swivel lcd screen. That's gotta be it, right? Just get all the anticipation over with. They are announcing high end first low end last. So this comes out for $2800, undercutting the d800 with much superior video, higher MP, lighter weight and higher fps than the d800. Goodbye d800 talk.

It's rumored that Sony will be introducing this at NAB 2012:

The Sony NEX FS700 – 4K for $8k (EOSHD)

We'll see if Canon can up the ante.  8)
