D3 to D3X Upgrade?

I know this is Canon Rumors, but the concept of upgradeable camera bodies is one I’d be very interested in.

From a reader
Change the output circuit board and sensor chip carrier (double the data readout lines – channels – enabled) and a D3 can become a D3X – firmware in D3 already had support for 24MP, but the circuit brd did not have enough buffer and processor to handle extra data flow.

D3 to D3X upgrade coming late 2009 – buffer upgrade tested the market. D3X priced at $8000 and so an upgrade can be done for $4000 and that will include shutter replacement = users can claim it is like a new camera.

I have no idea how likely this is, but it’s a cool concept. I wish they could do that with my 1D3!

Ads on CR
I agree with a few folks things have become a bit overdone as far as advertising goes. I moved the one graphic that appeared under the first post to the right side. That takes some eye strain off the post.

Adding Amazon is proving to be worth it, I’m just figuring out how to make it less intrusive. I won’t be doing any more posts dedicated solely to advertising or “great deals”. If I speak of a product, there will probably be a corresponding link if available. I think that’s a good trade-off. So basically, no ad unless you get some useful information.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I posted yesterday that i thought it had a bit to many ads… Its confusing when a post is an ad..

    Banners on the side are no probs… but when i get tricked to click a link is what i dont like.

  2. The ads by Google are in such an odd place. It makes your actual blog text seem it’s part of the ad. Place the Google ads just below the post text. I read the feed 99% of the time, so thankfully I can avoid ads. Funny thing with online ads, I have never clicked an ad online in my life. I may look online at a website only a few times because of what I see in a single magazine. Advertising is in such a void right now. I can’t quite see how effective it is.

    But the site is quite useful and I know the extra revenue helps to support it.

  3. CR dude,
    Ads are fine. Every bit of income will help you running a great site such as CR. Are you going to sell any CR merchandises?
