I'm calling BS on this.

I just don't see canon releasing a body above the 5D that has 3.7 FPS, there's no way especially since the camera  has dual Digic 5+ CPU's.

    Looks like whoever sent this rumour to Craig also sent it to Keith Cooper over at Northlight Images (http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/cameras/Canon_3d.html) along with some embellishments:

    • 16 bit RAW
    • Dual DIGIC 5+
    • "Its a new type of body,looks like a mini 1DX, it has a integrated portrait grip but its a bit thinner and significantly shorter and also lighter (no rear lcd panel)"

    Sorry, but (1) and (3), as well as the heat dissipation business sound a lot like b*ll*cks to me.  It's a bit soon after the launch of the 1D X and 5D MkIII to start suggesting that their technology is out of date.  As for the mini integrated portrait grip, perhaps they've seen the illustrations from NL and added them on to their imaginary spec list?

    Naturally, I will be more than please if I am eating my words in a month or so...!  ::)[/list]


    I think the lack of people talking about bit depth is surprising, I think it should be the main thing to consider, more so than mp. I'd much rather have 16bit version of 5dmkiii than a 14bit higher mp camera. It's the main aspect I'm considering investing in medium format.

    I think it's not talked about much because it just won't happen for another generation of canon pro bodies,probably... but like you, I would be more than happy to be wrong!

    This is why I like this site -- I learn so much.

    Now, I know if I want a really stunning low ISO image, I'll put the body in the freezer for a couple of hours before I shoot. No more hot sensors for me!!

    Not really my cup of tea, as I need high ISO performance more than resolution...

    If the price of 3D X is below 5K, I think I will get one.  I take photos for my family, ISO 3200 is good enough for me.  High MP will be great for the future when you play the photos on your TV.  In 5-10 years, UHDTV will be ready, and you need 30MP(for 4K) to 122MP(for 8K) for your UHDTV.

    No Eye-Control Focus????
    .... NO never ever again! I say it everytime. Why ppl dont believe me?

    Eye control focus is/was the devil. I bought the A2 instead of the A2e to avoid it, and happily turned it off on my EOS-3. Maybe it works for some users, but between my eyes, glasses and the eye control system, my EOS-3 it got the AF point I wanted maybe one time in ten; manually setting the AF point got it right all the time.

    How do you figure that? 4k resolution is 4096 x 2340 (unless you mean QuadHD, then it's 3840x2160) requiring at most 10 megapixels, and UHD 8k is 7680 × 4320 for about 33.2 megapixels. I regularly mix Canon DSLR stills with 4k RED footage, and have to downsize or crop the stills.

    Personally I love these specs and I would get such a camera.  Having played around with a D800 a bit I could really dig a high MP camera with Canon with great ISO 100 performance (aka industry leading DR) to complement the 1DX.

    I hope they make it happen.  Not sure how such a camera could be priced below $4k though...

    You are right.  33MP is for 8K not 4K.  I just got bad memory.

    We are talking about Canon camera not Nikon camera, right?  We all Canon users will pay only premium price for its camera.  I hope the price would be below 5K.

    Is this just a defensive rumor started by Canon to stop people from defecting to Nikon and buying the D800?

    What if it is called 2D or 4D instead?

    If 4D, it better be capturing smell or splashing water at me or something.

    However this camera turns out, 5D3 owners will be burned.

    For what reason? Unless you plan to buy another super computer for 46MP - raw file  ;D
    I bought a D800, and my fairly powerful PC could not handle editing of the raw files without taking excessive time to render the images.  NR or other enhancements were painful.  I edited a 500 image shoot, and that was enough for me.  I've looked into the latest computers, but there is no major processing power improvements from my first generation i7 to the third one.  I need 5X or 10X better for a 40mp raw file that opens to a 200+ MB file once in a editor.
