Canon's Next Full Frame Camera [CR2]
« on: July 16, 2012, 07:48:52 AM »
Fall 2012
Once again, we hear about a new “entry level” full frame camera being added to the Canon lineup in the fall. The specs for the camera have been quite broad, which is normal when there are various prototypes out and about. Below are the most talked about specifications, and probably the closest to the actual camera.

Specifications

  • 22mp (Same sensor as 5D3)
  • 19 AF Points
  • 4fps
  • ISO 100-51200
  • 3″ LCD
  • Smaller than the 5D Mark II
  • More Plastic than metal in the construction
  • Pop-Up Flash (On at least one prototype)
  • $1999 USD at launch
  • Launched with a new non-L full frame kit lens (Undisclosed what the lens is)
  • Compatible with full frame STM lenses

Lots more to come on this topic.

canon can only hope the rumored D600 price or specs are wrong...

Quote
•24.7MP full frame sensor
 •Weight: 760g (850g with battery and memory cards), the D800 weights 900g
 •3.2" LCD with 921K dot with ambient sensor control
 •HDMI output
 • 5 FPS
 •Built-in flash with sync speed of 1/250s
 •Video compression: H264/MPEG-4
 •Full HD with 30p, 25p, 24p, HD with 60p, 50p, 30p, 25p
 •Viewfinder coverage: 100% for FX , 97% for Dx
 •The Nikon D600 will have built-in AF motor
 •The body most probably will be weather sealed
 •Auto DX crop mode
 •The D600 may not have built-in GPS as initially reported
 •ISO range: 100-6400 (with Lo-1 ISO 50 and Hi-2 ISO 25,600)
 •39 AF points (with an option of 11 AF points), 9 cross-type AF points
 •AF face detection
 •Exposure compensation: ±5 EV (same as the D800)
 •The D600 will probably use the EN-EL15 rechargeable Li-ion battery
 •The price of the D600 is rumored to be very low - maybe as low as $1500.
 •The sensor inside the D600 will probably be 24MP (made by Sony, modified by Nikon).

first leaked images  for those who still think it´s just a vapor product:

i think that´s a pretty tough competitor.
especially when the 24MP sony sensor plays in the same league as the D800 sensor.

+1

This is shaping up to be another D7000 - 60D debacle for Canon.  The D600 specifications look pretty real, Canon had better hope that Nikon don't launch it at US$1500; come to think of it, Canon better hope that Nikon don't launch at US$1999 either!

Canon tries to push people switch from 5Dm2 to this entry level OR to 5Dm3, because anyways this one should be better?

Is the 19pt AF the one from the 7D?  I guess what I'm really asking is does the 7D have that many AF points? 

For me, this seems like the ideal upgrade from y 5Dc.  Sure, I'd love a 5dIII, but the bottom line is as an ameture that works maybe 4 jobs a year, I'm not going to be able to justify that cost.  Compared to the 5DII, this rumored list is a little more punch of an upgrade.  Though unless the pop up flash can act as a wireless controller i'd just as soon not have it.

i hope the specs are not the final ones. thought it´s a small chance to see a new improved canon sensor this year.

i had hoped canon would bring a killer entry level FF camera.
a camera nikon could not match in price and features.

i have no doubt that canon sales will be good.
but in the enthusiast market (and i don´t mean people who don´t have to care about the money) canon loses some traction.

i love photography and i would call myself an enthusiast... but im not making money with it.
so i can´t justify a 6000$ camera... and a 5D MK3 is not worth the money when i compare it to a 5D MK2... not for me.


so ask yourself, what would you buy as a starter?
to me the  D600 looks like a great deal.

How does this make sense? Why would I want a $2000 plastic 5DII equivalent when I can have the real thing for the same money? And I don't believe there is any noticeable difference between the 5DII and 5DIII sensor. So what gives?
5DII - 50L - 135L - 200 2.8L - 24-105 - 580EXII - 430EXII - FD 500/8 - AE1-p - bag full of FD lenses

Exactly my thoughts. I'm starting to think my next camera might actually be a Nikon if this trend keeps up. I'm going to wait until/if they announce the 7D mark2 before I make any decisions though. Right now Nikon simply gives better specs for less money. I'm not THAT invested in lenses yet so I guess I'll have to see.

I can't wait for such a camera…
Why? Because my wife started using my 5dmk3, she fell in love with it and no longer loves her 60D….and i can't afford to buy another 5D :) So…this would fit her just nice! And my wallet too..hehe

22mp (Same sensor as 5D3)

WTF?! 5D Mark II sensor continues to live on??

When will we see Canon put some new sensor technology in its non 1-series full frame DSLRs???

Correct me if i'm wrong, to my understanding the sensor in the 5D mkiii uses gapless microlenese technology unlike the sensor in the 5D mkii.

Good points. CR2, however it's hard to believe that this set of specs makes any sense.
