New DSLR on Tuesday, October 18, 2011. [CR3]

New DSLR on Tuesday, October 18, 2011. [CR3]

Which one?
I am 99% positive we’re going to see a new DSLR next Tuesday, all the clues are pointing that way and I’m willing to give it a [CR3] rating.

What camera? No [CR] rating on this yet.
Everything is pointing to a new 1D series camera, I am getting zero information from sources or from anywhere else on the web about any other camera.  We started hearing 6 months ago that the next EOS camera would be a new 1D and the bits of information are all pointing that way again.

For now the best spec list I have is what I posted a few days ago.

  • 16-18mp
  • Full Frame
  • ISO 51,200
  • Dual Digic V
  • Crazy frame rates of 12-14fps have been reported
  • 61 AF points has also been reported

Stock levels of the 1D Mark IV also point me in this direction. It seems they are very much being built to fill orders. There doesn’t seem to be any excess stock too many places.

Rumored 1D Mark V For October & Spec List [CR1]

Rumored 1D Mark V For October & Spec List [CR1]

A far fetched spec list?
An amalgamated 1Ds/1D Spec List.

Specifications

  • 18mp
  • 61 AF Points
  • Native ISO of 100-51200
  • New Battery
  • 150g-200g heavier that current EOS-1s
  • October 18 Announcement

CR’s Take
Currently this is the only information I’ve seen in regards to such a camera. I’d rank this as highly unlikely for the moment.

*BUSTED* 1D Mark V Spec List [CR1]

*BUSTED* 1D Mark V Spec List [CR1]

*Busted*
Another spec list torn apart by the community. The crop factors are off to a lot of people. APS-C isn’t 1/1.6.

Received 8 spec lists today! I expect 1.6x more tomorrow.

1D Mark V
A new claimed spec list of the upcoming 1D Mark 5.

We’re still getting conflicting 1Ds Mark IV & 1D Mark V model names. I’m still not sure what the new flagship will be called.

  • Sensor: 36 x 24mm CMOS sensor
  • Processor: Dual DIGIC 5
  • A/D conversion: 14 bit
  • Image sizes: 32.4 mp, 16.2 mp, 8.1 mp @ 5, 3 fps
  • APS-H mode (1.3x) – 24.9 mp, 12.5 mp, 6.2 mp @ 8, 3 fps
  • APS-C mode (1.6x) – 20.3 mp, 10.1 mp, 5.1 mp @ 10, 3 fps
  • Movie Mode: 1920 x 1080 @ 29.97, 25, 23.976 fps
  • 1280 x 720 @ 59.94, 50 fps
  • 640 x 480 @ 59.94, 50 fps
  • APS-H mode (1.3x) – 1920 x 1080 @ 59.94, 50 fps
  • APS-C mode (1.6x) – 1280 x 720 @ 119,88, 100 fps
  • Viewfinder: Magnification: 0.76x, 100% frame coverage
  • APS-H viewfinder magnification zoom: 0.87x – 89% viewfinder crop
  • APS-C viewfinder magnification zoom: 1.0x – 82% viewfinder crop

Go on and discuss what you think. This is fairly inline with what we’ve heard previously.

1Ds Mark IV & 24-70 II in 2 Weeks?

1Ds Mark IV & 24-70 II in 2 Weeks?

New Stuff?
I received a couple of emails today saying both the 1Ds Mark IV and 24-70 would be arriving in two weeks. This will be before the IFA event in Berlin.

1Ds Mark IV
The 1Ds Mark IV briefly appeared on Canon’s official web site. You can check that out at Photography Bay.

Still Quiet
I have to admit, all is still pretty quiet on the rumor front. One person has suggested we may get up to 3 different announcement dates in 2011. One for PowerShot, one for a flagship DSLR  and another lens announcement.

There has been absolutely nothing saying a 5D Mark III would be announced in 2011. Still a 2012 Q1 product in a lot of peoples eyes.

Quiet at CR
I’ve been away for a few days making sure my marriage remains intact. :)

*UPDATE* This & That

*UPDATE* This & That

From Germany
I received a price list from a German dealer today, omitted on the price list was the 1Ds Mark III and 1D Mark IV. The dealer is a pro dealer.

5D Mark II Crazy Price
Best Buy dumping 5D Mark II’s for what appears to be below cost.

Visit Best Buy 5D Mark II Listing

Canon Australia bug or more?
The 5D Mark II is listed twice on the Canon Australia web site, it wasn’t like this a little while ago. A placeholder or a mistake?

http://www.canon.com.au/en-AU/For-You/EOS-Digital-SLR-Cameras

*UPDATE* It was pointed out to me that if you click the second 5D Mark II link, the URL says “6D” at the end. *thanks Mike*

Nothing else too crazy today.

A Breakdown of Rumors

A Breakdown of Rumors

Opinion
Below is an update of the current state of rumors surrounding camera bodies. Most of what’s below is opinion, or clarification of what’s going on.

1Ds Mark IV
I was told a long time ago that a 1Ds Mark IV (or similar) camera would not arrive until late 2011 or early 2012 and would be 40+ megapixels. It would be a “big departure” from the current 1Ds line.

There’s been no information on the line that I’d call factual yet, the information I have been told seems to lead to a new type of camera on top of the Canon lineup.

1D Mark V
We’ve heard a lot about the amalgamation of the 1D/1Ds line over the years. It’s been a lot stronger in the last 6 months. It was over 6 months ago that I was first told a new 1D would arrive before any 1Ds replacement.

I personally think most spec lists recently have been wish lists more than fact, however I post them anyway just in case. I suspect we’ll have better information in the coming week or so.

All signs point to this camera, more than any other.

5D Mark III
Everything I get now says it’s a 2012 camera. Most likely in the February timeframe.

There’s a lot of rumblings about the line splitting into 2 models, nothing concrete though. If this camera was coming this month, I believe we’d hear a lot more about it.

Stoke the 1D Mark V Fire

From Twitter
Getty shooter Clive Mason had this to ask about a photograph taken by Richard Heathcote.

Richard Heathcote had previously admitted to having a preproduction 400 f/2.8L IS II last year, so he is a guy that’s in the loop.

This is from Dan Carr’s blog.

You can also see the new EF 400 f/2.8L II with a new style hardcase and lens cap.

5D Mark III & More Information [CR1]

5D Mark III & More Information [CR1]

Random bits of information
5D Mark III (or similar) announced in the February timeframe.

  • Different sensor than the 1D Mark V
  • It is still not clear whether it will have 26, 28 or 32 megapixel.
  • The sensor tech of the 1D Mark V will be used for future crop bodies e.g. the 7D Mark II.
  • The 7D Mark II is a late 2012 camera.
  • Expect significantly better noise reduction in high ISO modes.
  • Another full frame camera for sports and press this fall?
  • Announcements could be as early as the week of August 29, 2011.

EF 14-24 f/2.8L
I’m told this will be announced in Q1 2012.

CR’s Take
This is a big [CR1], I am posting information that is at least plausible. Grain of salt and all that. Various rumor sites are going to get a lot of stuff coming our way in the next few weeks, sorting it is always a challenge.

1D Mark V Featureset Rumors
I received an email today outlining additional features of the upcoming 1D Mark V. Please note I do not yet have a [CR3] confirmation of a 1D Mark V being announced in August.

  • The 1D Mark V will have “built-in cropping”. You will be able to choose between full frame (32.4 mp), APS-H (27 mp) and APS-C (21 mp).
  • You can buy additional focusing screens to emulate cropping.
  • The fps are linked to the cropping factor. You can get 8.4 fps with APS-C and only 3.1 fps with full frame.
  • sRAW1 and sRAW2 is possible to speed up fps.
  • Burst mode will give you a max of 10.1 fps depending on the image size and buffer.
  • Expect some video tweaks.
  • RAW video was only enabled for the engineers.
  • Either a 24-70 II (no IS) or a 35 II will be announced with it.
CR’s Take
This is a BIG [CR1], rumor stuff is starting to heat up. I am going to post stuff that has at least ideas that are plausible.
