New Full Frame Camera in Testing [CR1]
« on: June 06, 2012, 11:34:53 AM »
The Big Megapixel Camera
According to Northlight, they’ve been told a new full frame camera in a “1D” form factor is being tested in Asia.

We have heard similar things in the last few weeks, unfortunately without any sort of specifications or features of the camera(s). I am told, that they are not the 1D X or the 1D C.

We’ve had from two separate places that a large megapixel camera is on the horizon. It was said that such a product could come “sooner than you’d think”.

'Sooner then you think', 'but then we'll take a year before making it available'

Canon 5D Mark III and a big bag of primes

If its the 3D, then the naming alone suggests that it will be priced between the 5d3 and the D1X.

from the rumored specs it sounds more like an "über 1D X".

1D like body, same AF as 1D X, 4k video, 30+ mp, 6 FPS......

Just a couple nights ago I was looking around to see how many sub-50mm f/1.2 lenses were floating around.  a 40mm one would be a very nice addition ^_^, though the L makes me sad.

Aah, it seems to me that somebody has been daydreaming again ;).

So, Canon is going to compete with the $3K D800 ... with a $10K camera.

I wonder how this is going to work ???.
The D800 plus the trinity of Nikon f/1.4G primes (24, 35, and 85) will come cheaper than $10K.

lol
