Canon EOS 4D reference in Wifi remote app video
« on: September 19, 2012, 12:41:52 PM »
I was browsing the photos on Amazon's page yesterday for the 6D and watched this video: http://www.amazon.com/gp/mpd/permalink/m2OTAOA6NGA0HB/ref=ent_fb_link

At the 19 second mark, it sure looks to me that the app's header says 'Canon EOS 4D'.  i have added a screenshot, but watch for yourself. For further research, see canons page for the EOS Remote app, it clearly shows how the 7D and 6D look in the header, and are nothing like what is in the video. http://www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/Digital_SLR/eos_remote.aspx

Commence Speculation.

Ooh...I hope the 4D doesn't make me regret my 5Dm3 purchase.

Well it would depend.  Looking at the 1Ds3 vs. 5D2, the 5D2 had much better high ISO performance.  A 4D body would likely be high MP, lower ISO range, and most likely poorer AF performance than the 5D3.  If you do primarily studio work and no action/sports, yeah I could see a high MP, low ISO camera being "better."  Again that would be a fairly specialized camera, which the 1Ds3 really was, more or less.

Looks 4D is going to have build-in WiFi and GPS.  I really want that for my 5D3, so I can reduce the time to import my location information for my pictures.

Built in wi-fi, perhaps...built in GPS would mean a body similar to the 6D, which I'm not sure would make a lot of people happy

I don't see 4D. For me it's more 1D than 4D.
Sounds like similar problem as early Mars face photos :-)

It doesn't matter if it's called 1D or 4D.
What this video suggests is that Canon is testing a new high end camera with integrated wifi.

If Canon's app webpage has 6D and 7D picture references, I assume that also 1DX could be included. If 7D has WiFi add-on, so has 1DX...

Then wouldn't it say '1D X'?  Clearly it would not be referencing the 11-year-old 1D that has no way of connecting to Wifi.

Exactly.  It's not going to be 1D anything.

A canon wireless mobile adapter like the Nikon WU-1a is good enough for me for the time being...

I'd love to see this happen.  I've been longing for a feature like this for quite awhile.

Speculation on how long it might take to get to the 5Dm3 or 7D?  Hopefully it's just a wireless mobile adapter and is mostly camera agnostic, as that would make the most sense.

I couldn't care less about the 6D.  But a shooting remote that also happens to be my phone?  THAT I care about.  :-)
