5D Mark III / 6D from India
« on: January 24, 2011, 08:11:41 PM »

PCWorld.in speculation


Canon EOS 5D Mark III


Canon may name the next product in this dSLR series, as either the EOS 6D or the EOS 5D Mark III. This product would succeed the current Canon EOS 5D Mark II. It may offer a 24 Megapixel sensor and dual DIGIC 4 processors. The 3-inch display may be an articulated LCD screen with 1.04 million dots. What is more, it may be touch sensitive, making it the first full-frame camera with such technology.


When it is expected: This model from Canon’s stables is expected to be available before the first half of 2011 ends.

I don’t know how to take this.


thanks Wick

...may offer...may be...may have.

There may be too many mays in this rumor to take it seriously.

anyone can guess at a price.  there's not nearly enough in that paragraph by means of specs to even make a wild speculation.  it says nothing of build quality, framerate, video features, imaging features, AF capabilities, or viewfinder size.  basically, it gives you almost no useful information that may even remotely indicate a price.

you could get a 24 MP FF dual-Digic IV camera for as little at $2500, or as high as $4000, depending on all those things.  there are people who will talk about the 5DIII coming in at $2000, or even less, but to be frank that's on the far reaches of reality.  with the 5DII still selling at $2500, there's no reason for a vastly improved successor camera to be priced lower.  I've never seen canon deliberately shoot themselves in the foot with product pricing, and I don't see that trend starting in 2011.  especially not with lens price hikes coming and all new replacement L glass coming in at a 50% premium

I'd take this as nothing but speculation by someone else.  I don't think there is too much more to this.

Hope the touch screen can differentiate between my nose and my finger.

First half of 2011 ?

Jan of 2011 is almost over, 5 months to go ? I dont think so.

If its real, there should be some leak from a reliable resource ( not a computer magazine ). Rumor is rumor, but a rumor from Micheal Bay about new 3-D camera is more reliable than those from Tiger Wood ( well, who know he switch from golf to movie making )

I can see it now an articulated touch screen.  After flipping it out and giving it a couple touches over time, the hinges and material are bound to wear and flop off.

I think it's still will be released in 2012, heck you check youtube & you notice a lot of people posting up their "5d mkii test video" up so I don't think and hugely believe it wont be released this year :) next year seems the best time and adequate enough not to pee of people who just bought the darn thing this christmas' heck canon has to be nice once in a while, thats why they released the 60d :P in my opinion

so yeah, don't sweat it' its just a big guess as anyone on that website to rattle more traffic to that site.

Why not, slightly bigger sensor and a touch screen then reusing proven technology from other areas of canon. seems to plug the gap for FF users who want AF/fps speed and an upgrade.
Can't see the 6D name though. apart from looking at the potential for a 600D, 60D, 6D lineup.
Canon 60D, 24-105, 50 F1.8. 430EX II.
Sigma 10-20, 70 F2.8, 70-300. Studio.

Well, it doesn't matter much to me. Any release date is allright, as I am going to purchase a 5Diii or whatever they call it near the end of its life cycle. A 5Dii would be more than enough for me, currently shooting a 30D. But I have some hopes, that there might be some improved ISO 25600 and some usable 51200 ;-) My kick is very lowlight photography. And if Canon manages to improve the AF then that is a lot bang for my buck already. I am not into video at all...Hope the sensor won't go beyond 24 MP. Don't like to change a goodworking PC due to a new camera body. Uh, in this case sRAW 1 becomes kinda option. Any ideas?

touchscreen??? on a pro level dslr? no no no!

Part of the point of a higher end slr is you get MORE buttons and controls, I don't want them replaced with a single big screen.

Also, touchscreens not work well when wet or cold, whats the point of weather sealing when it becomes not so operable in wet or snowy conditions.

Phase One has touchscreen on their new IQ1xx medium format camera backs, and the backs are supposed to work in rough conditions. Not sure how well the touchscreen works though.
