The latest on the next 1Ds
I've received spots of info about the 1Ds over the last month or so. Some good stuff and some silly stuff (square sensor).
I've received a few dates, but the last one stated the 1st half of April 2010. The release would coincide with the new firmware for the 5D Mark II.
The specs are basically the 1D Mark IV with a 32mp sensor and a much slower framerate. There has been no mention of any new 1Ds only features outside of the sensor.
Could there be some advances in the movie mode? I could definitely see that being a possibility. The movie feature of digital SLR's (especially from Canon) has been great for sales.
Expect a price tag of $8499 USD.
No third party currently has a 1Ds Mark IV. They should make their way into selected pro hands sometime in the next couple of months.
Photokina in September?
This camera could be released for Photokina. This was the original timeframe for the 1Ds4.
