4 More DSLRs Coming in 2012? [CR2]
« on: June 12, 2012, 04:19:07 PM »
More to come
Received some information that Canon is far from done as far as camera launches go for 2012. I am being told that 4 more DSLRs are coming in 2012.

Which cameras?
It’s unknown if the expected mirrorless entry counts against the mentioned 4 camera bodies.

Speculation about what the 4 cameras could possibly be are below.

1) “Entry Level” full frame camera. Think of it as a direct replacement for the 5D Mark II.

2) Prosumer APS-C, possibly the 70D and not a direct replacement of the 7D.

3) The big megapixel entry, mentioned to be an EOS-1D style body.

4) A mirrorless entry.

If the mirrorless doesn’t count against the 4 purported camera bodies, I’m unsure what else Canon could have up their sleeves for the EOS line. A few people have suggested a 5D in the cinema EOS lineup, however I don’t think that’s likely until after the EOS-1D C starts shipping in late 2012.

Sooo...my 5DmkII is being considered 'entry level' now?
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.

Couple of thoughts...

Will Canon debut an EVF DSLR? But what sensor would that have? FF or APS-C?

Canon needs to put big megapixels into both a 1D sized body and a 5D sized body.

What are the thoughts of those using the 5DII for video on its size vs the size of the 1DC? If size is a concern then maybe the 5DC will be announced as a 4K DSLR?

Sony is rumored to be releasing a New NEX with a non-interchangeable lens. Maybe Canon will release a non-interchangeable Rebel Super Zoom. :)

^ 5D-C: who wants crappy 4k that we have to downscale? I want a beast 1080p codec, that get's us closer to raw 1080(24bit).

Come on Canon. It's clear that this camera (5D3) is a firmware adjustment away from killer video, and don't act like you haven't already done it. Nikon's hands are tied by their agreement with Sony(to protect Sony's video line), but you have no excuse. Just put the 5D-C on the market for $5K-6K, and I'll snap it up.

Using a 1D-class body for the big megapixel camera would be insanely stupid, an open invitation for Canon studio and landscape photographers to buy a Nikon D800. The only thing worse than selling a low end camera that cannibalizes your high end camera sales is to have the damage done by a competitor's low end camera.

I would like to see Canon actually deliver products they have already announced before announcing more.   The typical amount of time between announcement and availability of products has become a joke.  This is mainly true for their "pro-level" gear.

I'm just about to pull the trigger on a 5D MK3 and I mostly shoot video, can someone please throw me a 'you're doing the right thing' bone. I'm worried that what Canon might do is make a video orientated entry level full frame borrow the AF technology from the new 650D/T4i.

Can you see where I'm coming from?

What about a boring old replacement for the 1100D? Not very sexy, but certainly possible, especially if it's in Q4

Hope this is all turns out, can’t wait to see the spec of the ‘entry’ level FF. The 5D3 is a dream but I’m having a hard time justifying the cost, still saving though! but a FF version of the 650D would be spot on for me.

Well, technically it is the 'entry level' FF now. Although I wouldn't mind having one.   :P

This rumor seems more like wishful thinking than plausible reality. Just give me my 70D please.  8)

Already? It's pretty new actually...

I'm interested in this rumor though, very curious to see what the're going to take out of the hat.

I hoping they will, but it almost certainly won't have AF.  If they made something with distinctly better video than the 5D3, with autofcus, it would really undercut the c300.  Why do you need AF anyway? The DSLRs will never really focus smooth enough or fast enough to do proper video with AF.

It is a CR2 though and CR Guys previous isn't too shabby to say the least  ;)
Get out the popcorn I'm excited already  ;D

It was a bit silly of me to mention the AF because AF doesn't matter to me at all but I thought that perhaps the whole full frame/automatic stance might be something that would sell really well for Canon. Thinking about it you're right about the undercutting the C300 and I'm most probably just being paranoid.
