i won´t buy a 2012 fullframe camera with a sub-par autofocus system...
« Reply #255 on: September 15, 2012, 12:17:54 AM »
11 autofocus points? +- like an entry level dslr
1/180 flash-syncro-speed? worse than any other canon-dslr
1/4000 shutter speed? even my VERY old 40d from 2007 has 1/8000s
100.000 shutter durability???

will i spend 2.000 $/euro for such a body?

no way!

i can´t believe, that canon tries to sell THAT as a "semi-pro"-body.

no, thx. i will not be a buyer.

As another poster said, if this is a 6d then the quality should be that of a 7d or better to get closer to how Canon names their cameras. This sounds like an 8d if it takes Sd only. What a joke. If these spec's are true then the thing i do while on the throne could be my contribution. If it takes a cf card and has at least a 7d focus system then i will get back to being curious.

Canon security getting better?
« Reply #257 on: September 15, 2012, 01:12:37 AM »
Just time out to say: Canon will probably announce something next week and all we really have is a leaked G15 image.   Canon seems to be getting better at keeping a lid on things.

Who knows? -- maybe this CR1 leak is from Canon itself to see how the user base would react to a $2k dumbed down FF camera.  Ahem.   ::)    Not going over big.  Not at all.

Really no need for this. Just cut the 5D2 price to ~$1500 and the 5D3 price to ~$2500 to sandwich the new plastic amateur body from Nikon and call it a day.
T3 is the bobn2 of Canon fanb0is.

If this thing comes out as spec'd I won't be surprised.

IMO, the 5Dc and the 5D2 were both just FF Rebels with only the 5D3 really stepping forward in features and performance. Something a tad lower-end, but newer, makes a better setting for the 5D3 to shine in.

Until you compare it to the competition's offering.

I'm sure Canon's marketing guys are getting no sleep this week, trying to figure out which variation of product to announce and what day to make it available to milk the most money from the eager public.

You want performance with that?

I think these specs are all bogus. Canon are just trying the Apple PR - method. Say nothing, comment nothing, just release what they want, when they want. They look at these forums and laugh their ass off! Why? Because, if people were not interested in their product they would just ignore them. Instead people are yelling and shouting and cursing, which mean they are dedicated. That is all canon need to know, because their lenses are what keeps the amateur, hobbyist and professional shooters loyal to the canon camp, as they/we are heavily invested in all the glass. P&S buyers and first time DSLR buyers just buy what the salesman says.

So, do I think the 6D is for real with these specs? No, but Canon wont rush to prove otherwise, just because we are yelling at these forums. They really really don´t care, because no matter how much we scream and shout here, when the cameras are in the store, we buy them anyway.

Wow! Eleven focus points. That's progress.  :P
The spec list reads pretty much as beige mush.
I doubt this camera exists.

That's the depressing thing - Canon could get it right, and they actually did with the most of the 5d3.

You said it right, most.

My 5D3 does neither have USB3 nor a built in GPS, nor support for UHS-1. My 90MB/s SD card is slowed down to 45MB/s.

Looks like the 6D is gone have some of these missing things. UHS-1 and USB3 is a standard today.

Cheers

Could be true - and Canon might even have slipped bogus horrible specs so everyone will be pleasantly surprised if the real thing is announced in October because it's a little better than expected! Delivery will take until October 2013 anyway.

That's the depressing thing - Canon could get it right, and they actually did with the most of the 5d3.
My 5D3 does neither have USB3 nor a built in GPS, nor support for UHS-1. My 90MB/s SD card is slowed down to 45MB/s.

I guess the sd card slowdown is just braindead money saving and because the Canon testers only used fast cf cards and the sd as a jpeg backup, so no one had a problem with crippling the controller. Same goes for USB3, they might use a card reader in the pc which puts less strain on the camera connector. Concerning gps - let's see if it'll have a preicse heading, just for position I'd prefer a logger in my pocket with its own battery.

But I fear Canon will not upgrade tech in the 6d, just downsize it - the 5d3 is just too new too leave it look outdated. The one thing I can imagine is phase af pixels on the sensor for live view like on the 650d.

Looks like more than one leaked picture. So, this could be real, but the specs are really disappointing.

Did people from the Photoshop 101 class got to post on CR for homework?

As much as I would like USB3 it is hard to say it's a standard feature in DSLR bodies yet. Both the Sony A99 and the Nikon D600 use USB2 so I don't see any motivation for Canon to do that here. Now, if the camera is going to use SD as its storage medium then it would be a crime not to support UHS-I.

Canon is out foxed.
« Reply #267 on: September 15, 2012, 05:19:52 AM »
Nikon and Sony have completely out foxed Canon.

Canon's first big mistake was putting only 22MP in the 5D3 with a sensor that performs about the same as the 5D2.

Having learnt from the lesson of the 1Ds3/5D2, Canon did not want to introduce a "lesser camera" (6D) than the 5D3 with the same sensor because lots of would-be purchasers of the 5D3 would simply buy the 6D instead. So the 6D will have 20MP to stop it stealing sales from those who want more MP (22) from the 5D3.

Where Nikon has outfoxed Canon is that their camera at about the same price ($2099 is close enough to $1999) but with 20% more pixels. Nikon were able to deliver a 24MP FF camera at $2099 because their next model up camera has substantially more megapixels - 36.

Canon's product lineup below the 1DX is screwed. They really need to throw it out and start over.

And why does Canon need to do that?

Because the number of megapixels in their sensors is now too low. And if megapixels didn't matter then why wouldn't the 6D have the same, if not more, than the 5D3?

I think these specs make a lot of sense. For the REAL beginner, this is a pretty darn nice camera.  This is basically a Super Rebel.  And I really like Rebels.  Yes, the 1/4000 shutter speed isn't great. But even as a semi-pro, I rarely use it. An amateur even less.

I see this as a $1200 - $1500 camera.  So it will under-cut the Nikon D600 by about $500 if I am right. If I was a beginner and wanted full-frame at the lowest price, I'd have to choose the Canon. I consider the Nikon to be a better camera, sans the metal body.  But money is money.

Except for the shutter speed, this really does replace the old 5DMKII.  If I had to choose between the 5DMKII and the 6D, it would be a tough call. Performance vs. Features. As a semi-pro, performance is more important and it's the 5DMKII.

But there is a large price gap now. It would make sense if they put in this new 20MP full-frame sensor and built-in WiFi/GPS into a 7DMKII and price it right there in the middle. That would be a damn fine camera.
