4 More DSLRs Coming in 2012? [CR2]

4 More DSLRs Coming in 2012? [CR2]

More to come
Received some information that Canon is far from done as far as camera launches go for 2012. I am being told that 4 more DSLRs are coming in 2012.

Which cameras?
It’s unknown if the expected mirrorless entry counts against the mentioned 4 camera bodies.

Speculation about what the 4 cameras could possibly be are below.

1) “Entry Level” full frame camera. Think of it as a direct replacement for the 5D Mark II.

2) Prosumer APS-C, possibly the 70D and not a direct replacement of the 7D.

3) The big megapixel entry, mentioned to be an EOS-1D style body.

4) A mirrorless entry.

If the mirrorless doesn’t count against the 4 purported camera bodies, I’m unsure what else Canon could have up their sleeves for the EOS line. A few people have suggested a 5D in the cinema EOS lineup, however I don’t think that’s likely until after the EOS-1D C starts shipping in late 2012.

New Full Frame Camera in Testing [CR1]

New Full Frame Camera in Testing [CR1]

The Big Megapixel Camera
According to Northlight, they’ve been told a new full frame camera in a “1D” form factor is being tested in Asia.

We have heard similar things in the last few weeks, unfortunately without any sort of specifications or features of the camera(s). I am told, that they are not the 1D X or the 1D C.

We’ve had from two separate places that a large megapixel camera is on the horizon. It was said that such a product could come “sooner than you’d think”.

Canon EOS 70D & 3D Prediction from Japan

From Japan
A magazine in Japan called CAPA may have shown specs for 2 Canon cameras, the first being the 70D and the next being the long talked about EOS-3D. The magazine is pretty well respected, and all of this could be entirely plausible.

With the new Rebel coming on June 8, 2012, and the predicted mirrorless following soon after, I am unsure if either of these cameras are slated for an announcement any time soon.

Canon 70D

  • 22MP and DIGIC5+
  • 19-point AF
  • 6 FPS

Canon EOS 3D

  • 30+ megapixels, 1D-class body
  • Dual Digic5+ processors for 6 FPS
  • 61-point AF system, major functions same as 1DX
  • Equipped with flash (or speedlite transmitter)

The above scan was sent to us, you can see more at [CW].

Canon EOS-3D Surfaces Again [CR1]

Canon EOS-3D Surfaces Again [CR1]

3D for the megapixel lover
The Canon EOS-3D has been a rumored camera since before rumor sites, and every so often a flurry of new rumors under the moniker “EOS-3D” surface.

Recently a suggestion that a new “high megapixel” camera will be around by spring 2013 has come about. It’s reported that at least a couple of test bodies are being used in the US and in Asia.

While I don’t doubt high megapixel sensors are in testing, it’s probably too early to nail down exact specs. I also dislike the name “3D” if a product doesn’t actually shoot 3D.

Another suggestion is the 1D C isn’t going to be the only Cinema EOS DSLR by the end of 2013.

EOS 3D & 5D Mark III Mentions

EOS 3D & 5D Mark III Mentions

Some new mentions
The “EOS 3D” project is apparently alive and well at Canon. The camera’s introduction will depend on the success of the 1D X, 5D3 from Canon & the D800 and D4 from Nikon. We haven’t heard anything about a “3D” in a long time.

5D Mark III
A mention that the 5D Mark III will not be a crazy high megapixel camera.

This week & CES
I expect some news about new products in 2012 this week. Canon won’t be going to CES/PMA empty handed I wouldn’t think, especially not with an imminent D4 announcement. However, I’ve seen no invites yet for a media event from Canon.

Stay tuned.
