New Canon 3D - how much and who would
« on: June 06, 2012, 02:27:02 PM »
Just for the sake of going broke, how much do you anticipate a 40MP 3D camera body will retail for?  And would you buy one?

My guess: $5,999 and 'YES!'
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

At least $5k...and no.  The D800 at $3k most likely will be a much better value / performance ratio.  $6k as you suggest would not surprise me.

My 5D3's resolution is plenty for me, so no, I have zero interest in a mega megapixel body that costs an arm and a leg :)

Who says if there was one it would be 40MP, it could be 27MP with 1080p @ 60 fps aimed at videographers. If so, then would be priced midway between 5D3 and 1DX, about $5,200 ( [3600 + 6800] / 2)

I may be interest in this 3d if the price is around $5000 vs my 5d3 since it:

MAYBE: intergrated flash transmitter (very big deal)
more mp.. ** i can choose medium mraw if i need it small.
better build/ weather resistance
longer shutter life cycle
longer battery cycle
5d3 cost $350 for grip :) and it still not same as 1d ser body.

damm.. the more i listed it. the more i want it

+1

I realised how insignificant resolution was to me when I moved from a 10MP 40D to the 22MP 5D3, and didn't really notice the change in image size (other than file size).
5D Mark III, 40D, 1V.  Bunch of strobes, lenses and other bits.
They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.

+2...5D III is perfect for me. I'll skip higher MP
Body: 5D III(x2) -- A7r
Zoom: 16-35L II -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 50L -- 85L II -- 135L -- 400L f2.8 IS II -- Zeiss FE 55mm f1.8

Depends on its form factor and ability to deliver images.

I'm not into speculating about buying cameras - I'll wait until they've been reviewed, thank you very much.

Really??  I do a lot of cropping and printing and I notice a HUGE difference between my 5D Mark III and 1D Mark IV (22 vs 16).  Guess it depends on how "far" you need to go.

$4500, but only if it has killer video.

...and take a lot longer in post-pro than 22Mp files. With the brilliantly specced LR4 dragging the chain in the performance department, I'd have to put my prices up to properly process a few hundred ultra-size RAW files. Not to mention pressure on current computer hardware and data storage considerations.

Still, a 40+Mp Canon will suit a lot of photographers. And may be worth considering if the price is realistic just for those special projects.  In the meantime, I'm consistently stoked with 1D4 & 5D3 files.
