Canon DSLR Rumors

Canon Prototype Full Frame DSLR Shooting RAW Video?

HDSLR w/Raw Video?

1Ds4 or 5D3?

In my inbox, as well as posted on Planet5D (not sure which came first). There is apparently a full frame dSLR being tested in Europe that can shoot RAW video.

Could the camera be the upcoming 1Ds Mark IV or early testing of the 5D Mark III? I’ve been told previously that the 1Ds4 would have video features currently not available in any Canon dSLR.

The 5D Mark III is starting to get whispers around the web. From myself as well as others. I won’t be posting much at this time about such a camera until regular sources start to say something. The camera could come as early as Photokina in September, but I’m still wagering on a 2011 release.

1Ds Mark IV Release Date
Everything has been quiet about a concrete launch date. There also hasn’t been any new word on lenses. Going by past experience, this is the calm before the storm.

  1. The NEW FIRMWARE for 5D Mark II allows to record less compressed video (not sure if RAW, although that was Canon’s intention when developing and testing in mid. 2009).

    This “rumor” surely belongs to the 1Ds Mark IV, not at all to a supposed “5D Mark III”.

    In fact We do not think there is a 5D Mark III at all yet. That would kill Canon’s loyalty of thousands of professionals and serious amateurs, who are the ones who buy their expensive full frame lenses.

    That might explain the INTENTIONAL DELAY that Canon is having with the “ready for release” firmware for 5D Mark II since months ago…

    Anyway we do not agree with the intentional delay…

    Canon: BETTER the 5D2 firmware have VERY good improvements to make it worth such wait.


  2. 60D will not be FF. The SRAW video mode may be in there. The sensor can take it, if they can do 720P at 60FPS on the 7D. The 1DsMKIV will have raw video too, but they will let the bugs get worked out on the 60D first. The 1Ds might have the processing power to combine pixels and really be a low light monster.
