Some Conflicting EOS-1D X Mark II Specifications [CR2]

Some Conflicting EOS-1D X Mark II Specifications [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | January 28, 2016 | Canon DSLR Rumors

The following information comes from a very well known source, who has been correct about 80% of the time. The resolution information about the upcoming EOS-1D X Mark II contradicts what we were previously told.

Specifications (Italics are a direct quote):

  • 20.2mp sensor (We messed up and screwed up a translation and reported 22mp, instead of 20.2mp.)
  • “Some sort of a built in AA filter removal function. User can choose to have AA on or off, not too sure how that works.”
  • Improved dynamic range, but still won’t match the Sony sensors.
  • “Specifications may not be perceived as exciting as the Nikon D5.”

Leaks for this camera have been extremely hard to come by.

Canon Sales Going Pretty Well in Japan

Canon Sales Going Pretty Well in Japan

By Canon Rumors | January 27, 2016 | Canon Business General

The BCN Japan 2016 award winners have been announced in various segments of the digital imaging world. Canon continues to show strong sales in point & shoot and DSLR camera sales. The surprising finish for Canon in Japan is third place in mirrorless sales.

TS560x560

Keep in mind Japan may not represent the rest of the world, especially when it comes to mirrorless. That is the one marketplace where mirrorless cameras have had the most acceptance.

We suspect point and shoot and DSLR sales would favour Canon on most of the planet.

Thanks Richard

 

Lots of Sensor & AF Patents Emerge

Lots of Sensor & AF Patents Emerge

By Canon Rumors | January 27, 2016 | Canon Patents

Keith over at Northlight has spotted a lot of sensor and autofocus patents that have made their way through the United States Patent Office.

There are patents related to autofocus, auto autofocus calibration (we had heard about “intelligent AF” in the past), on sensor A/D as well as more stacked “foveon style” sensor patents.

Keith gives a full breakdown of the patents here.

EOS-1D X Mark II Announcement Next Week [CR2]

EOS-1D X Mark II Announcement Next Week [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | January 27, 2016 | Canon Business General

We were told a little while ago that there were media invites sent out for the first week of February, and all assumptions were that it was for the EOS-1D X Mark II.

We now have a few more people confirming an announcement on Monday or Tuesday of next week, it’ll all depend where you are on the planet.

We do find it strange that Canon has opted not to tease the new camera, that always made things a little more interesting.

More to come…
