Northlight has received word that Canon will be releasing a high resolution big brother to the EOS 5D Mark III in the fall. This is another reference to an EOS 3D type of camera (it’s been going on since this site started). The higher resolution camera would also shoot 4K video and have an abundance of video features. Pricing for the camera would come above the EOS 5D Mark III.
There’s always mentions of high resolution sensors showing up in Canon DSLRs for testing around the globe, and I don’t doubt that it’s going on. We were told back in the fall that Canon would be releasing 3 new DSLRs in 2014, and we’ve already seen one in the 1200D. The other will most definitely be the followup to the EOS 7D, the third camera is unknown. I’d like to think it won’t be a replacement to the EOS Rebel T5i.

From Planet5D: Alex over at Magic Lantern announced today that the Magic Lantern team has a version of their software that should work on Canon EOS 5D Mark III firmware version 1.2.3 (which is the latest version)
“Not alpha, not beta, nor zeta, just a bleeding edge that happens to work for me. It might work for you or it might not. (note that my standards are fairly high, so what I call bleeding edge, others may call semi-stable or whatever)”
There are significant updates in this version too, like the elimination of the need to mod the boot flag – but Alex also warns there are still issues with portions of Magic Lantern including the HDMI output in this version.

Established in 1953, iF Design Awards are recognized as one of the most prestigious awards within the field of design. Every year iF honors excellent design in three disciplines: product, communication and packaging design.
Canon won its first iF Product Design Award in 1989 for an office copying machine and, since that time, has been awarded for a wide range of products, including cameras, video camcorders and copying machines. This year marks Canon’s 20th consecutive year of winning iF Design Awards and brings the Company’s cumulative award count to 90. Encouraged by the recognition of the Company’s design excellence, Canon will continue striving to realize products that combine the highest levels of performance and design.
PlanetMitch over at Planet5D speculates about the possibility of adding Dual Pixel Technology to the EOS 5D Mark III. With Canon adding it to the Cinema EOS line, can we expect the same thing for the EOS lineup as well?
Mitch asked Canon, and received the types of answers you’d expect.
This would certainly change the game for the EOS 5D Mark III and adding features to an existing Canon DSLR.
“Tho of course, we don’t know if it is going to be added to the Canon EOS 5D Mark III or even the Canon EOS C300 and who knows how long Canon has been putting Dual Pixel capable sensors out… but we do now know that they shipped cameras with capable sensors before they had the firmware necessary to make it all work.”

Camera Canada is selling super telephoto lenses at a big discount over their US counterparts and ship to the USA. These items 100% qualify for USA warranty. I buy most of my gear in Canada from these guys. They’re great to deal with. The current currency difference between Canada and the USA should help offset the price of shipping. Camera Canada ships Canada Post/USPS to the USA and so far that has avoided any customs or duties for US customers.
