EOS-1D X & EOS 5D Mark III Replacements in 2015 [CR1]

EOS-1D X & EOS 5D Mark III Replacements in 2015 [CR1]

Northlight has posted a bit of a roadmap for the pro level cameras from Canon. They’ve been told that the EOS-1D X Mark II would come first, with a potential announcement coming in very late 2014. The EOS 5D Mark III would follow afterwards. Both cameras will most likely benefit from the new sensor technology we’ll see in the upcoming EOS 7D replacement.

CR’s Take
If the technology in the EOS 7D replacement is as great as people are claiming it to be (we don’t yet know what it is), then it would make sense to replace the other flagship models in the lineup fairly quickly. The EOS 5D Mark III was arrived in March of 2012, and the EOS-1D X soon after in June of 2012. A three year cycle for each seems doable, even if the EOS 7D will have taken nearly 5 years to replace.

Canon Marks the 25th Anniversary of the EOS-1 Camera

Canon Marks the 25th Anniversary of the EOS-1 Camera

TOKYO, June 10, 2014—Canon Inc. today commemorated the 25th anniversary of the EOS-1 series, the flagship-model lineup of the Company’s EOS series of interchangeable-lens cameras, which debuted in 1989.
 
In 1987, Canon launched EOS, the world’s first AF (autofocus) single-lens reflex camera to employ a fully electronic mount system, using electrical signals to control such functions as autofocusing and aperture adjustment. Two years later, in 1989, the Company introduced the top-of-the-line professional-model EOS-1. Created to satisfy the advanced demands of professional photographers, the camera marked the inaugural model of Canon’s EOS-1 series. Based on the EOS concept of delivering automated performance in accordance with the will of the user, the EOS-1 featured cutting-edge technologies, class-leading levels of performance, high durability, robustness and reliability.
 
In 1994, as a growing number of professional photographers were making use of the autofocusing capabilities offered by cameras, Canon launched the EOS-1N, featuring an increased number of focusing points and increased predictive focusing when tracking moving subjects. Additionally, in 2000, the Company introduced the EOS-1V, equipped with 45-point high-density Area AF, which contributed to high-speed predictive AF of up to 9 frames per second. In this way, Canon has consistently launched flagship-model SLR cameras designed to satisfy the demands of professionals in step with the changing times.
 
Upon entering the digital era, Canon launched its first flagship-model professional digital SLR camera—the EOS-1D—in 2001, followed in 2002 by the EOS-1Ds, equipped with a full-frame 35mm sensor. Since then, the Company has reinforced its product lineup through efforts targeting enhanced image quality and continuous shooting performance.
 
In June 2012, Canon released the EOS-1D X, its latest flagship pro-model digital SLR camera, marking the EOS-1 series’ 13th model since the launch of the original EOS-1. The 1D X has garnered strong acclaim from professionals working in a wide range of fields, from photojournalism and sports coverage to commercial and nature photography.
 
Through the introduction of its powerful flagship-model EOS-1 series, incorporating cutting-edge technologies, and the expansion of these technologies and the functions they make possible, even to entry-level models, Canon continues aiming to enhance the value of its product lineup. In addition to its robust camera lineup, Canon contributes to developing the culture of photographic and video imaging though its efforts to fulfill the diverse needs of users.

New Full Frame Camera in Testing? [CR1]

New Full Frame Camera in Testing? [CR1]

A mention on Northlight about someone from Canon apparently visited a few studios in the New York City area recently with a “test” camera in an EOS-1D X body. Images had to be processed and viewed on a particular laptop and none of the images could be copied or kept.

The image files were very similar in size to the EOS 5D Mark III’s 22mp files, but exhibited “much” better colour accuracy and detail. This camera is supposedly for later this year or early next year.

Could this be a replacement to the EOS-1D X, or an introduction of a new camera such as the rumor favourite EOS 3D?

EOS-1D X & EOS-1D C Cold Weather Autofocus Issues

EOS-1D X & EOS-1D C Cold Weather Autofocus Issues

We have been notified about a known issue within Canon on the Canon EOS-1D X and Canon EOS-1D C camera bodies and sometimes not autofocusing in cold weather situations. I have read about the issues on our own forum as well as on others.

Below is an explanation of the issue we’ve received from an anonymous source, though no official service advisory has been issued by Canon.

Symptom:
Camera “does not autofocus”, “does not search in AF”, or “does not focus in AF search” depending on the reporter or the camera settings; specifically, the focus cannot be achieved in low temperatures (under 0 degree Celsius).

* Although there has been no reported occurrence on the EOS-1D C, the mechanical structure of the Mirror Box Ass’y is the same as the EOS-1DX, so the EOS-1D C is included in the affected product.

Cause:
This phenomenon is due to the Locking Claw of the Sub Mirror (mirror for AF) going over the Locking Pin. The Sub Mirror’s angle becomes deviated and the light rays for AF does not fall on the AF sensors, causing the “does not autofocus” phenomenon.

EOS-1D X Mirrorbox Phenomenon in Cold Weather | Pre January 2013

Service of Affected Product:
To control the torque, the process to check the Locking Claw’s going over torque of Locking Pin has been newly incorporated. (From production on January 24)

Repair Procedure:
Handling of units in question: If the user complains about this specific phenomenon (does not autofocus in low temperature), replace the Mirror Box Ass’y with the ones to be shipped in the future (CY3-1661-010 or CY3-1687-010).

Handling of general repairs: If the user does not mention this phenomenon, please handle as normal repair.

The line directly above is of great concern to me. If you bought one of the earlier EOS-1D X cameras and live in a warm climate, you may never know the issues existed until you went to shoot in a cold climate.

The notice is dated January 2013, so I assume all cameras manufactured after that date would be unaffected. There is no serial number range that I can see, nor do we know how widespread the issue is. However, if you have experienced this phenomenon, you now know what it is.
