i would only wish canon had something exciting for us still shooters too.

My guess is that people looking for an exciting still camera are going to be out of luck for another cycle or two, at least from Canon.   And with Sony's massive loss this year we might see some scaling back from that competition, so we are likely to see some serious stagnation for a while.

So is the Cinema 1D going to also serve as Canon's high resolution studio and landscape still camera...for $10,000? This thing could have 39MP+.

I seriously HOPE they keep the megapixels down. High Megapixels = bad video because of the downscaling that is needed.

Make it 22 mpx MAX. I was hoping it would not be more than 18 mpx.

I was also hoping the price would be around 7K, not 10K.

The supposed zooms don't really make sense considering they are faster than the $40k+ cinema zooms that they released with the C300.  And I just can't believe they are going to try to sell a DSLR body for $10k, something doesn't sound right about some of this.

Atm the pricing is speculation so it could possibly come down to the $7 mark. more than likely $8500 range but still better than $10k.

When they say higher MP everyone thinks straight away about the 1D or 5 etc. But this is not a photography camera its the Cinema EOS range. So that means that all it has to do is have more MP than the 8MP C300.

 
Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

It all depends on how it performs for still pictures.  I also wonder if this will be the High Megapixel camera we were told about a few months ago that was coming in 2012.  The price seem steep a bit but Canon seem to be on a mission regarding the video market.

This is all Cinema EOS stuff, I seriously doubt it was built with still images or photographers in mind.

Just another reason why we need a Cinema EOS/ Film section of these forums.

Well I guess these rumors seem to be confirmed on EOSHD, bummer.  I really can't believe they're going to ask $10k for a DSLR body.

Yes, and to record it as well.  The Sony FS700 is rumored to be 4K ready.  This means you need not only a TBA firmware upgrade, but a separate proprietary recorder which is going to cost $$$ and only work with the Sony proprietary 4K output.  They seem to have a knack for shooting themselves in the foot with expensive options that are required to make a product work and do not work on other brands.
