The Big Megapixel EOS
Similar information has been sent to [NL], that a 46.1mp Canon DSLR will be previewed at PhotoPlus 2012 in New York City between October 24 – October 27, 2012.

We’ve had a couple of sources confirm that a 46mp prototype Canon DSLR is in the wild, though not claimed to be anywhere near production ready. Do not expect availability until well into 2013.

The Specs

  • 46.1mp Full Frame
  • 5 FPS
  • ISO 100-12800
  • 16bit

A 1D body, I assume?

Has to be FF sensor with pixel size of about 4.3 microns so very close to current 7D. Perhaps a FF 7D2 after all?

Finally some relative credible rumors and 16 bit. I believe will be in a 5D3 Body (not 1D) aimed directly to studio work. At those specs will be at around $ 5K.
For what i do... regarding photography... 46 MP is a blessing from haven

I really, really hope this will be true

46mp @5fps wow wonder what the buffer will be if true, and shudder to think what the price will be bet it will make the 5D3 entry price look like a real bargin! good to see though

At least this promises to gain back some DR in print.

So, they will take their current APS-C sports camera and turn it into a high MP landscape camera? Seems rather silly to me.

I'd expect a name with a number lower than 5 (4d, 3d, 1ds, etc). 46mp and 5fps tells me it'll cost more than the 5dIII as well

That does seem to be consistent with other reasonable rumors I've read over the past several weeks.

Yeah, you're probably right, it could be a 4D, but the low ISO range of 100 to 12,800 and not 50 to 51,200 or 101,400 threw me. Is this going to be a $4,999 EOS 4D designed for Studio or outdoor Landscape photography where low-light is not an issue? The 7D2 and 70D have seemed to fallen off-radar...

Yeah, I mean, of the professions that need low-light, how many of them need 46mp? Wedding photogs and PJ types don't. Most sports guys wouldn't, and if they did, 5fps wouldn't be fast enough anyway (I think they'd take 12fps at 18MP).

I guess the use case would be astrophotographers who want to be able to shoot at 12,800 and print big. But that is such a small niche within the larger group of landscapers that I think they'd focus on low-ISO levels. Heck, most landscapers would probably take extra DR right now over the ability to use 25,600.

They did the same thing with the 1Dmk3 and 1DsMk3 I believe

edit: Yeah, the 1D3 was announced in Feb at 10MP with ISO 100-3200 and 10fps, the 1Ds3 came out in Aug at 21mp with ISO 100-1600 and 5fps.

i really don´t know what people need ISO 25600 and above.

and i wonder how these people have worked before.....
Not so much a need, but, if you're shooting a ISO 6400 and 1/15th second, you'd have to use flash in the past. Now, you can push to 25,600 and get the 1/60th shutter speed you need. Makes shooting a wedding or on the street a lot more flexible.

Oh Lord.  The 1DX isn't for megapixels.  Have you used one for sports?  If you bought it for landscape and portrait at low ISO, you wasted your money big time.

Interesting...  And awesome.  It would be like the Canon 5DMK2 big brother.  This would be a great studio camera and a pretty good 'everyday' camera if you use smaller RAW file sizes.  At 5fps, that's good for just about anything.  I love the high ISO of the 5DMK3 for some of the evening work I do, but they made too many compromises in it (no user-replaceable focus screen, slow SD card performance, no built-in WiFi)

With the price of the 5DMK3 dropping like a rock, we could see the price on that camera be between $2500 - $2700 a year from now.  Which is the price I thought it should've been from the beginning.  The 46MP monster would be priced around $3500 - $4000 I would think.

While expensive, this could be the camera I wanted the 5DMK3 to be.  For non-magazine work, I would just step down the RAW sizes.  I would think that for the price and the market this would be geared for, it would have dual CF slots and replaceable focus screen for expensive, manual focus fast primes.  Hopefully it comes with an AF system equal to the 7D or better for those times when I need it.

I eagerly await for October....
