Just remember that without years of pressure from NHK (starting in the late 70's) you would probably still be watching 525 line TV and any camera that shot simple HD video would be a Bugatti. The NHK process violates just about every American concept of anti-trust, but it works.Just because Japan wants to raise its game in broadcast video doesn't mean we all get some Bugatti supercar for an ILC.
I remain deeply skeptical of this rumor.
I think you are correct in a conservative assumption since that is Canon M.O.. And if it goes that way we would probably be in the same pattern with the usual rodeo of:If we were to take Canon's history of releasing cameras/specs over the years then this is way uncharacteristic so I'm not holding my breath.
If we take their past into consideration, this is most likely from what I think
Camera 1. 5Ds style mirrorless: high MP slow shutter (4-5fps)
Camera 2. 5Div style mirrorless: 8-9fps, 30-32mp (canon always do baby steps with improvements)
I dont see 12-20fps camera with 45mp mirorless, whats the 1dxiii for then? No one would buy it anymore
I agree of course. I just don't see it happening. I hope I am wrong!Maybe, Canon used similar logic to what they did for the 1DXiii, the resisted the urge to win the megapixel war, and are producing a camera that has "enough" pixels for wedding and landscape photographers, but handles them at a faster speed? Part of the reason the 1DXiii was 20MP was wifi data transmission. A mirrorless 5D wouldn't need that as much so the emphasis could be on what they could send to the cards. I hope the 40MP and 12 fps parts are true. That would be an amazing camera.
Of course I meant the 5D category, not the actual 5D IV...There is nothing equivalent about this rumored camera and the 5D series. If this rumor is real, the camera body slams the 5D series. Body slams it, guts it, and then eats it... you know what happens after that.
On my R with Eye AF turned on I hit theHow do you get eye-AF to stay on the eye YOU want it on? Mine always jumps from eye to eye, and at f/2.2 and wider, that's frustrating. I gave up on it, even with all the latest fw updates...
Well, with better specs than the EOS R, I would expect it would have at least as good sealing as the R, and since the R has been shown to withstand 50 minutes of rainfall unprotected, I'm not sure how much better weather sealing you're really holding out for...Any weather sealing? a must for a pro body.
I think you are correct in a conservative assumption since that is Canon M.O.. And if it goes that way we would probably be in the same pattern with the usual rodeo of:
1. Bitching from all fronts upon announcement (especially when compared to Sony)
2. Followed by YouTube pundits bashing it without real world experience for clickbait
3. Actual people using, enjoying and making wonderful images.
4. Canon, still not ******* since 1937.
