What will be the response to the D3200?
« on: April 18, 2012, 06:46:21 PM »
The Nikon D3200 is rumored to be annonced by 19 april (http://nikonrumors.com/2012/04/18/nikon-d3200-in-black-and-red.aspx/).
The rumored specs are quite interesting for an entry level DSLR (24 MP sensor, 11 AF points, 4 fps, ISO range: 100-6400, with hi-ISO of 12800, "Improved video functionality").  I guess that the D5200 and D7100 will come with very interesting ++.

Will there be a Canon "response"? and when?

the t4i and 70d?? ... I hope we will see soon some solid rumors about those two models.

Any thoughts?

Hard to say but as you point out it will be interesting to see Canon announced an "affordable" camera for a change!

1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

In the past, Canon has been offering a similar body and features (they won't offer 24mp), but at a lower price.  That is what entry level buyers go for, they use the green box setting in most cases anyway, so fancy specifications are ignored.
 
With Canon's recent higher than Nikon priced entries, I'm wondering if they will still be undercutting Nikon prices.  If they don't, business will flow the other way.

there will be no "response". Whatever canon has next is already decided on regardless of what the D3200 is. But if the D3200 is indeed 24MP it will be the epic reversal of roles. Just a few years ago, canon's entry level cameras had more MP than Nikon's flagships. Tomorrow, Nikon's entry level DSLR will out MP everything canon has ever made. goes to show how these companies tend to swap places in a cycle so don't panic.

I hope the response will be a nice new crop sensor camera (t4i or 70D): probably the t4i will be clearly inferior to the D3200, and all the new goodies will show up first in the 70D. I hope that'll be enough for many people not to flock to Nikon. On Amazon I've been seeing always the nikons at the top three (though I expect the 3100D to disappear as soon as the public realizes that it's old).

Nikon is "responding" to Canon's last generation now. (Heck, the 3200 is even the same red as Canon's 1100 offering)

If Canon do "respond" it will be in the next generation. The new models that are all coming out have been planned for a while, and they won't be making last minute changes just to suit.

A response? If any, it will be 3 years down the line. Meanwhile, they'll have their own offerings with their own strengths.

Nikon are just recycling the Sony chip used in the Sony NEX 7.
Why would Sony make another brand new chip for Nikon's entry level DSLR?

As we all know, MP's aren't everything in photography.

That of course leaves out the possibility that Canon had foreknowledge of this release, Nikon are afterall much less sucessful at keeping tabs on there future DSLR sensors due to the 3rd party link with Sony.

We did have pretty strong rumours of a 24 MP canon crop sensor a month or two ago with the uncertainy being over whether it would be in the 70D or 650D. With some foreknowledge I think its easy to see Canon either releasing it in the 70D and leaving the 650D release until the autumn or putting it in the 650D itself.

One less likely alternative might I spose be Canon offering improved AF on the 650D and selling the 70D on the improved sensor.

correct me if i'm wrong, but doing simple math, if an 18MP 7D sensor has a pixel density of around 46MP full frame, then a 24MP APC sensor is roughly equivalent to a 61.3MP full frame sensor?  The sony 24MP sensor was crap...  Cant imagine this being much better....
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

What actually did catch my attention was the wireless control thing that can (kind of) do all the settings and release the shutter right away on your smartphone -- without connected to a pc.  It is still an additional dongle that needs to be plugged in somewhere next to the input jacks though.  Would love to see how Canon will respond.  It would be nice if they integrate such functionalities right into the body itself.  I don't mind paying extras, but I seriously do not like a *dongle*.

So the D3200 is the new member of the bottom rung of the Nikon DSLR range, right?  And 24MP is about equal to 61MP (from above), right?  Presumably, they will bundle it with a typical kit lens like the one with the D3100.

Is the kit lens even capable of resolving 24MP?

I mentioned in the 5DIII DxO freak out thread, but Canon has a big time marketing problem on their hands. Particularly on the low end, competing against the D3200. Unless Canon pulls a rabbit out of a hat, people looking at their first DSLR are going to see Nikon 24MP > Canon 18MP, Nikon DxO results > Canon DxO results (regardless of the stock you put in the scores, many people will be influenced by this)... and then finally, price. We don't know what a T3i successor will cost. But at $699 MSRP Nikon is offering a pretty remarkable value.

Nikon brought the house this round. Hopefully Canon responds similarly.

Canon has nothing to worry about. Canon is still pWning Nikon at cameras and market share.
5D Mark III | 5D Mark II | 17-40mm f/4L | 24-70mm f/2.8L II | 35mm f/1.4L | 85mm f/1.2L II | 135mm f/2L
