More Big Megapixel Talk [CR1]
« on: September 25, 2012, 04:32:44 PM »
A bit more information
I’m told that the coming big megapixel camera is a very new sensor design/overhaul. The emphasis is in the dynamic range of the sensor. Performance is said to be on the level of medium format, even better than the impressive D800.

The same person also says the camera won’d be a “3D” or any other “D”, it will get an all new naming scheme.

EF 35 f/1.4L II
This is apparently also ready for an announcement, now that the manufacturing issues with the EF 24-70 f/2.8L II have been solved. This lens could come at PhotoPlus along with the new EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x.

Most of the information lately has been through third parties and from new sources, so keep the salt shaker beside you.

thanks for the info

All of this info points to it being expensive as hell. I'm guessing $6K minimum.

OK, with specific talk on DR, the drooling and daydreaming has already begun.

Very interested to hear some info on price speculation

All of this info points to it being expensive as hell. I'm guessing $6K minimum.

Agreed... if this tops D800 in DR, Canon could have a wallop of a price tag in store.  If it just matches D800, Canon will still probably charge more, but perhaps not quite as much

If they're prepared to drop the xD naming convention, you can be sure that it's price will top that of the current 1DX (which by the way is > $8k in Europe), so I wouldn't be surprised if it is $9,999 ($7,999 in USA market)

THIS is what I wanted to hear. Finally some improved DR!  :D

I hope it is true.

Bring on the added DR. Looks like it's time to modify my diet in case I have to sell an organ!!!

New sensor technology?  If so I wonder what it is?  Any patents to hint at it?

I'm interested because technology tends to trickle down to consumer cameras that I can afford.

i also think it will be very expensive.
in the range of 8000-10000$

maybe called EOS-S  (for studio).   ;)

but the good thing is that maybe in 2014 we will see that sensor tech in other bodys too.
well what does that means for me.... no new canon body until then.  8)


It wouldn't make any sense for Canon to price a DSLR that high.  You might as well buy a used hassy at that price.  I bet it will be under $5000 - if this rumor is true, of course.

It'll be interesting to see if Canon sets the price so high that potential customers can purchase a D800 and Nikon 24-70 and 70-200 lenses, and still have money left over.

If the sensor is a 16-bit sensor with some kind of active cooling (no, not necessarily a fan), and Canon doesn't completely botch the ISO 100 and 200 electronic noise, then it could stomp all over the D800. With an extra two bits of information they could push 15 stops of DR, maybe even a little more (but no more than 16.0.)

My guess is that its still probably their same old sensor tech, but with some kind of efficient cooling to keep the sensor below room temperature (thereby reducing electronic noise), and extra bit depth. Canon needs the active cooling because they are either incapable of innovating and patenting technology similar but different enough to Sony Exmor, or there simply ISN'T another way to reduce noise electronically like Exmor, and Canon either has to pay Sony royalties, or do something entirely different.

I like that, I think Freelancer is the front runner right now for the possible name of said high-MP camera.

...it could be that this camera even has the rumored square sensor.

I thought we had all gone over this many times before that a square sensor cannot exist due to mirror clearance issues (unless of course it is 24mm x 24mm, which would be pointless)?

well everything is possible.. it could be that this camera even has the rumored square sensor. :)

by the way im speaking from an european viewpoint.
the 1D X costs ~8500$ here already.
so it´s not such a stretch...

Yeah, you guys get screwed.

Well, if this is true, my observations about new tech are indeed confirmed.
