So, we can safely assume that the body is at least 36 MP. No word on AF yet. Can wait to determine if this is a Sony killer.
The sensor crops the top and bottom of the image to render full width 4K. So the sensor resolution would have to be somewhere in the ~42MP range.

Can’t wait... now the main open questions are:
1. What will rolling shutter be like?... global shutter please Canon:-D
2. How much dynamic range can we expect?... Please have DGO technology... pretty please.
If they squeezed in these two features the competition... wait... there would be no competition.

C 1dx3 has 2800 mbs in raw @ 5.5 k, and R5 on only 400 mbs @ 8k. Sounds unreal.
Yes, that doesn’t sound right does it. One of the assumptions that went into that 400 MBs numbers must be off. I think my 1DX2 is 500MBs at 24p although mjpeg is a data hog.

Edit: got it. Mixing my Bits and bytes again.

If they announce that it has GS and DGO, you don't need to buy it. You need to take every penny that you were gonna spend on it and buy lottery tickets, because it's your lucky day.

Seems like this is targeting explaining the two modes that basically no other camera in its price point has; which in the past has meant Canon would cripple them in some way to render them little more than marketing specs.

Im hopeful this means that era is over; which is wild since so much of the EOS RP was insane crippling
I'm hopeful as well that the crippling era is over; with that being said I do think the RP is a bad example...at that price point I think Canon will always pull out the cripple hammer otherwise no one would ever buy any other model.

What I never understood was crippling their flagships like the 5DIV or how long it took for them to re-focus on the DSLR video market. I'm almost ready to believe that Canon really did have some fatal flaws in their CPUs and had to develop a new generation of processors to safely overcome their limitations without overheating or instability.

PLEASE stop using that word! It's patently gross but also wildly inaccurate. It implies 'cannot do very much at all'. If a ship is "crippled" during a battle, it's essentially out of the fight. 'Not being able to do everything because it's built to a budget' is nothing like that.

Very curious about the rolling shutter. So far, this camera sounds so amazing (as we all of course know), it will be hard to resist...

As someone who is going to use R5 for stills (and not video) 99.9% of the time, I'd prefer it to have neither.
