I agree. Also, if they really do have quad pixel AF, they don't need to go high resolution, as they can (and should) interpolate using the sub-pixels, so the camera can either be a ~24MP Bayer array (by combining the quad AF sensels similar to how they currently combine the dual pixel sensels), OR they can leave them uncombined and effectively have a CFA array that looks like:The EOS1 series tipically not high resolution cameras. I don't think 85Mpix is real. Global shutter is.
But, if you could have the OPTIONs of using the higher when you wanted it, along with the lower when you needed it...why not have the best of both worlds?A 21MP quad-pixel sensor would have 84MP pixels of course which could in theory have a special mode that could record each sub-pixel separately. And it would seem a waste of a quad pixel set up if you didn't have a dual or quad gain set up to improve DR. So whilst there are elements that could be true but it does have the smell of a wild optimist/attention-seeker! Mind you some of R5 rumours sounded pretty wild at the start
I guess there will be people who could use a camera that switched 21/85MP, I can't see 85MP being of particular interest to the majority of the professional market though
Nah, would need to be a 100mp 3:2 sensor to provide 12k (12288 pixels on the long side @ 16:9). It would mean 80mp frame grabs if that was the case though. Not too shabby though at 30fps85mp for the 12k raw video.
