We will all be like when the real camera get's announced if we are to believe that rumor. And for what's worth I do think stupid of Canon not making that 50 1.4 IS lens. It isn't as if they hadn't made already 24 28 and 35 new IS lenses.[taps on mic]: You are optimistic.
(But good on you for it.)
- 1Ds are more than just specs. They ergonomics, build quality, and dependability. So, dunking on a few specs, fine. Especially if Canon gives the 1DX III users a few things the R5 doesn't have (better weathersealing, battery life, shutter life, autofocus, autofocus and autofocus, etc). Plus, if Canon wants to appease the current 1D users but then get everyone else to transition to an R...this does make sense to me.
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.
Like I said, something like a city skyline/view from a skyscraper... Would be neat to be able to look at it from a normal viewing distance, but then also to be able to get close and see details right down to people. I took some photos off of the Empire State Building a few years ago and printed one fairly large. You can make out people walking on the street in the foreground, but they are little more than black dots at the resolution I shot it at.What would you like to print that large that people would still want to look at from such a short distance, you'd need 300ppi?
If it would have say 6k30p instead of 8k30p RAW, it would have got me thinking... But hey, even the 1dx mkIII can't output this so why should Canon release something like this? Of course if this is close to truth, they would destroy all comptetition, but doing so they would also destroy their own 1dx MkIII, except for those who absolutely need the extra speed and buffer.
Yes 5DsR used Dual Digic 6 but 1DxII used dual Digic 6+ (and yet a 3rd lower capacity one for metering) . The 1 series body was also the one with more processing power (or Mpixels/sec if you will)Assuming this is even true, perhaps they are using dual DIGIC X vs the single in the 1DX3 to achieve the throughput? The 5DSR also used dual DIGIC.

Good point, and so much for what's possible or not, and z-cam uses CFast cards. CFExpress opens a whole new door for video. Maybe Prograde had some inside info when they decided to focus on CFExpress. If 50% of this rumor is true, get ready to lighten your wallets. First the body, then the CFExpress cards, and finally all those really nice expensive RF lenses .Since Z-Cam's are announced, all camera manufacturers are sweating. The lower part of Canon and Sony's cine line are under threat... I'm sure they will implement at least 4K 120fps soon in their mirrorless body and in other cine cameras.
I know exactly what is going to happen with this camera...
Whiners demanded two card slots and Canon obliged, but at least one of them is surely going to be CFexpress, which is going to cause a bunch of additional complaining.
Cannon should make a camera for you guys with zero slots since you obviously don’t think your pictures are worth preserving.It's already started. The card-slot cry-bullies have already started in about the rumors of one of them being CFExpress and one not. But if BOTH were CFExpress they'd whine about the expense. If BOTH were SD they'd whine about the speed.
They were always going to cry about something.
