Another EOS 7D Mark III Wishlist Makes the Rounds, Along With Some Opinion [CR0]

Another EOS 7D Mark III Wishlist Makes the Rounds, Along With Some Opinion [CR0]

Another list of recycled specifications for the EOS 7D Mark III is making the rounds.

Canon EOS 7D Mark III Rumoured Specifications:

  • 28mp Sensor (It was 30mp a few weeks ago) [see here]
  • 4K video [see here]
  • More video oriented features [see here]
  • Tilt-able touchscreen (Likely a feature for pretty much every Canon DSLR going forward)
  • A higher end feature set when compared to other APS-C DSLRs from Canon [see here]
  • A “new generation” of APS-C sensors from Canon
  • Same introductory price as the EOS 7D Mark III

I think we’ll be seeing a lot of these lists over the next couple of months, as Canon is going to be relatively quiet for the remainder of 2017. The PowerShot G1 X Mark III is coming and they have to start shipping the brand new tilt-shift lenses and the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS.

I personally don’t think Canon needs to up the resolution for the EOS 7D Mark III to make it attractive to buyers, but they could definitely improve dynamic range, image detail, autofocus performance, speed up frame rate, improve ISO performance and add the long overdue 4K video with C-Log for an APS-C camera.

I think things will start getting a little clearer as we get closer to CES in early 2018, while we don’t expect a DSLR to be announced for that show, we’ll likely see a a prosumer DSLR announcement some time in February of 2018.

Canon’s Next EOS 5DS Won’t See a Big Resolution Bump

Canon’s Next EOS 5DS Won’t See a Big Resolution Bump

By Canon Rumors | October 11, 2017 | Canon DSLR Rumors

Little bits of information are coming about Canon’s next EOS 5DS camera body are coming out. The EOS 5DS or EOS 5DS R Mark II is expected to come some time in 2018.

We’re told the new EOS 5DS body will not see a big bump in resolution, while the number isn’t know for sure, we’re told to not expect more than a 20% 10% increase. Hopefully image quality is the name of the game from the new high resolution DSLR body from Canon.

*UPDATE* We had a typo in our original post, it should have read 20% and not 10%. I apologize for the mistake.

More to come…

Review: Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS Art by TDP

Review: Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS Art by TDP

By Canon Rumors | October 9, 2017 | Third Party Lenses

The-Digital-Picture has completed their extensive review of the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS Art series lens.

From TDP:

The promise of Sigma Art lens quality coming to the 24-70mm focal length range along with an f/2.8 max aperture and optical stabilization had a large number of photographers signing up to add this lens to their kits immediately on announcement day. Does the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 OS Art Lens fulfill Sigma’s “It’s Here to Steal the Spotlight” promise? From the perspectives of many, it was hoped that this lens would get that spotlight for its exceedingly sharp image quality performance and from that perspective, I’m sure that there is some let-down among the hopeful. However, this lens is optically competitive and it performs quite well for the price. Read the full review

This is definitely a lens that should be on your shortlist if you’re looking for an affordable 24-70mm f/2.8 stabilized lens.

Lots of Canon Sensor Patents Hit USPTO

Lots of Canon Sensor Patents Hit USPTO

By Canon Rumors | October 6, 2017 | Canon Patents

Keith over at Northlight Images has uncovered a large number of sensor patents from Canon. When you put all of these together, you get some interesting full frame sensors that will work with lenses that are quite close.

If you’re bored and love reading patents, take a peak at the list below. (Summarized by Keith)

  • Canon patent info looking at asymmetric micro lenses for sensors [USPTO]
  • Canon have a slew of US patents dealing with aspects of DPAF, such as one looking at how you deal with the split in well capacity [USPTO]
  • Another looks at making use of contrast to improve the efficiency of phase AF [USPTO]
  • If you put lots of smaller BSI pixels under each micro lens you can improve sensitivity and DR [USPTO]
  • Automating focus micro adjustment is covered [USPTO]
  • Ever wondered what your camera is up to between shutter press and shutter release, when you are in AF/AE mode [USPTO]
  • Oh, and one more for those keeping up with curved sensor development [USPTO] – equalizing the influence of bending on dark current

This all feels related to Canon’s upcoming full frame mirrorless camera(s).
