Next EOS not a 1Ds4 or 5D3…. could be a 1D Mark 5? [CR2]

Next EOS not a 1Ds4 or 5D3…. could be a 1D Mark 5? [CR2]

What’s coming?
Last weeks mention of a 1D Mark V spec list was for the most part dismissed by yours truly. The spec list just seemed too detailed. However, my mind could be changing with new information that has trickled in over the last couple of weeks.

It’s looking more and more like a camera will be announced by Canon in 2011, however it may not be available until the new year.

What I do know

  • The next EOS camera will NOT be a 5D Mark III.
  • The next EOS camera will probably not be a 1Ds Mark IV. Probably is the key word here, it could change.
  • The next EOS camera will not be an APS-C camera.

What’s left?
A new model camera introduced to the lineup, or a replacement of a current camera. I’m currently leaning towards a replacement of the 1D Mark IV.

Line amalgamation of the 1D and 1Ds? Maybe not in the literal sense we’ve been told. However, they could definitely take on the same form factor. By making the Mark V a full frame camera. That would lower production costs, tooling and everything else that comes with sharing parts across camera models.

A Loose 1D Mark V spec list based on multiple pieces of information

  • Full Frame
  • 16-20mp Range
  • Native ISO 51,200
  • Dual DIGIC V
  • Frame Rate Unknown
  • EOS Video Features Unknown.

October 18 coincides with previous mentions of an announcement the third week of October. The rumor last week from DCI also mentions October 18, as does the CPS invite in The Netherlands.

If this is coming in 10 days, I expect to see a lot more info coming my way.

I was told as long as 6 months ago, that the next EOS camera would be a 1D Mark V.

Lenses?
I’m told more and more that Canon will be staggering announcements for the foreseeable future. You’ll see a body, and then a lens a while later, and so on.

I have nothing definitive to report on that topic.

New Stuff?
Received word and scans of an invite for an event on October 18, 2011 in The Netherlands.

No mention of what might be the reason for the event.

There has been mention in the past of an announcement the 3rd week of October. I’ll have more information soon.

  • Native ISO of 100-51200
  • New Battery

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.
