I was having some fun!Actually there will be startrail much sooner. The 500 rule does not apply for high mpixel camers. It doesn't even apply for 30mpixel (5DIV) if we are going to check at pixel level. I was using 14mm lens and I could see startrail at 25sec (even at 20 sec if I pixel peeped).
I cannot think of using any kind of stabilizer without any tripod but I believe you were aware of all these and were half joking and "playing" with numbers anyway
EDIT: I believe there is camera that uses IBIS to help with astrophotography. That would be a nice feature (using sidereal and half-sidereal tracking maybe).
If this is real, and if you are willing to buy it... then yes. The rumor says different battery.States "Scroll Wheel" added but no mention of joy stick for moving AF point. Not really a fan of the swiping a finger across the screen to move the AF point.
Also new battery??? Does that mean I'll have to ditch my stock of LP-E6 that I've built up for another expensive battery?
Not a whole lot of people can buy a 1DX Mark III. This, at more than twice the price, would not hurt the 1DX Mark III. One thing is certain; it will not be a $10K camera.Yep, if this existed as is for an EOS R camera, it'd probably be pushing the $10k price line. It'd instantly cannabalize 1DX sales, which would also be weird.

Exactly, 45 Mpx hits a sweet spot between performance and high resolution. I don't shoot video so the video specs aren't as important to me. That said, having good video specs would make this an all around win.I like 45 Mpx much more than the rumored 70 Mpx. It has better balance between efforts in post and details for my photograph, and I am sure most people don't need that much high res (unless you are Tony and need to future-proof your family photos).
The rest of the specs are hard to believe (Background voice: What do you mean canon innovated??), but even if 75% is true it is still a phenomenal camera. I think I'm a buyer.
To print a full size photo on a Canon PRO-4000 (44"x66") at 300ppi, you would need a 261 megapixel image. Now, granted that's not realistic, but 300ppi is generally the gold stand for printing resolution.
45 x 20 is not plausible in the next 12 months, full stop.
45 x 14 is plausible (42x12, 60x10 cameras exist today), but it makes no sense for Canon to do:
It just doesn't add up unless Canon is panicking and doesn't mind angering all the folks who recently got in on a new body. That's not how they operate.
- It's a cosmic leap forward for the 5D# line.
- It's a resolution setback from 2015 for the 5DS line.
- It still somewhat dunks on the 1DX3 (IBIS, video, stills detail without limting the fps too badly), so all price point logic goes to hell.
I was unaware that a modern medium format system had dozens of professional optical instruments priced between $1-2k that tap the full AF functionality of that platform.
As this industry has always shown:
I'm not opposed to MF. But MF needs a far far far stronger value proposition than resolution, bit depth, and leaf shutters. FF can simply do more for less money.
- Not everyone who wants detail has the patience, budget or predilection to shoot MF over FF.
- MF cannot remotely touch all the bases that an FF system conveniently can: portability, affordability, reach, and AF in particular.
- Folks seems to buy FF glass and stay in that ecosystem.
Cropped sensor MF so not really proper MF.https://www.parkcameras.com/p/20155...-gfx-100-medium-format-mirrorless-camera-body is the one I was looking at, its only £3000 more than a 1Dx Mark III. Its not pocket change, but it is MF and on an equal weight footing with a 1d.
