AF Points
We’ve been told the camera will have 19 selectable AF points. The camera will most definitely have more like the 1D Mark 3. 19 Selectable may also be a mode the camera is capable of.

The camera has been under serious lock and key and I’m waiting for CR3 type stuff.

Video Oriented Accessories
Another email claims the 1Dv will have a whole host of video related accessories launched with it.

The camera will be shipping at the end of November worldwide.

Pro photographer quote to us
“This camera is  Canon taking back its spot as the king of technology in digital SLR’s”

Great quote, I’m waiting for some elaboration. :)

Tomorrow I’ll be busy I’m sure.

  1. Market segmentation meaning, not competing with themselves. But… I think it would be arrogant to offer a crop sensor and give up market share to Nikon just to keep prices high.

    Nikon is only slightly behind Canon.

  2. I guess the new MkIV is a crap. Gosh Canon, when will you only put features in your cameras that only I require?

  3. ZAC the DOF will be the same regardless of the format with the same lens. This means that a D3 with a 400mm F2.8 lens will have the same DOF as a 1d mark III or 7d with a 400mm F2.8 lens. So for sport photographers the only thing that changes are the framing where the cropped sensor will give you a better frame and close to action.

    But If you are not a sport shoter, or use shorter zoom lenses then you are right. AS a commercial photographer, I always shoot with a FF because at the same framing the FF wins in DOF and bokh

  4. My 40D certainly was unlucky; I had to send it back to Canon three times because of focussing problems. Last week, they sent me back a reconditioned 50D as a replacement. I haven’t had much of a chance to test it out, but it seems better with most of my lenses except the 24-70mm, which is not quite on target even when the focus micro-adjustment is racked out to +20. Looks like that lens will be making its fourth trip back for servicing. I suppose it is tempting fate too much to expect that it might be fourth time lucky.

    Moral 1: Beware bodies and lenses with a “4” somewhere in the name.

    Moral 2: Be persistent. While Canon seemed unable to fix my 40D, they were always courteous and willing to try again. I think they have a rule that they will try three times to fix a problem before considering a replacement. Looks like “4” is something that is bad luck from a servicing point of view, too.
