Mirrorless Update - APS-C? [CR2]
« on: July 12, 2012, 11:10:33 AM »
Going bigger?
We’ve mentioned in teh past that the upcoming mirrorless camera from Canon would have the G1 X sensor. While an apparent prototype exists using the sensor, the coming camera is apparently an APS-C sized sensor based around the 18mp sensor in the Rebel T4i (Hopefully the rubber grip isnt the same).

The camera will also feature an articulating touchscreen, and maybe larger than some people are anticipating.

More to come I’m sure. An announcement is expected on July 23, 2012.

Seems [NL] is hearing similar things.

APS-C size in 2012. FF sensor in 2013  ;D

Wonder how fast AF will be?

The important thing is, how smooth does the film winder operate?

Well, that would be a pleasant surprise.

A decent rangefinder and "classic" styling would complete the package.

Interesting though that they continue to essentially recycle the 18 mp sensor.  It makes me wonder if the rumored 70D will also use the hybrid 18 mp sensor and Canon saves a new sensor for the 7DII.

An APS-C mirrorless will get interesting when they have a 20mm pancake, and some other small lenses.

i guess that´s how the canon mirrorless will look.. more or less:



no honest i think it will resemble more a DSLR then a PEN or GF or a classic camera.

I hope not. That will make it not even coat-pocketable.

im not sure if "pocketable" is a concern for canon when it comes to the new mirrorless camera.
APS-C is not the way to go then. the body can be small but as you see on NEX.. the lenses are not.

they will sure try to make it smaller then the SX1... but i would not be suprised when it resembles a bridge/DSLR look.

Please, please, please no fugly faux retro rangefinder look! No Hybrid viewfinder needed, just a high quality EVF.

Also it would be nice to have Body Only or Body plus EF Adapter as an option.

Great news if true, and I'll definitely give it a look although I still have a candle burning for a FF mirrorless.  I'll probably continue to sit on the sidelines until I see who decides Leica shouldn't be the only FF game in town....

It will be coat-pocketable if a pancake prime is used. The zooms are too big.

I re-read up on all of this every time a new rumor comes out and the point really still eludes me . . .

As I understand it, they're trying to get features from P&S cameras (lightweight, small, no mirror noise) and SLRs (interchangeable lenses, bigger sensors) to work together, no?

If that's the case, is this like the 'buy a hybrid car' thing, where the economics don't work from a practical sense but it's the principal of the thing?

Someone help me out here :)  I can't see what's wrong with the current (and possibly future) lineup of SLRs and P&S cameras.

Thanks

Then no one would buy it. The "classic" looks way better.
