Seeing they've incorporated IBIS, this extra feature for stills must undoubtedly be pixel-shift to up your stills resolution to 179MP or so.
Reported 150MP though. That hints at sensor resolution being 150/4? 37.5MP. Just guessing here. I am not quite up to speed with this tech yet.
 
Would love to see a bigger buffer to go with the 10 fps shooting....doesn't need to be 1D matching, but it would be nice to be able to do a few 5-10 shot bursts over a few seconds....that would be a big bonus from the 5D series that I have owned. Everything else about this camera already makes me as excited as I was when I was first hoping to buy the 5DII. Should be every bit as good for stills as the Sony A7RIV that I'm using now but will give my 500f/4 a new life and the video spec will be an added bonus.

It is possible that he cropped the image, or, didn't give an exact number of MP to not give away details he obviously cannot do under NDA.

I think at this point, the MAJOR new feature would be that it actually WILL do stills :LOL::LOL:

Some of you guys on here have been so worried about the video feature set hype, I think ya'll were really wondering if it would do a still frame :ROFLMAO::p
It at least does 33MP stills at a rate of 30 fps :ROFLMAO:

Does no one else find it odd that Canon themselves have said nothing about this so called upcoming release event? I don't know anything about Canon's press release history, but I would think with only 8 days to go that they would have already started the hype machine and provided some kind of countdown to the press release. According to their calendar, July looks like a very quiet month: https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/about/newsroom/events/#calendar
Guess the event is official

So because all manufacturers are close, that means there can be no gains? You can say there don’t need to be any gains, I would get that.
No, the point was all manufacturers are so close in high iso because current technology is limited by laws of physics. Until there is a substantial change in technology, a revolutionary change that hasn’t been demoed or patented anywhere, or the laws of physics are negated there is practically little improvement to be had at high iso.

Demanding a stop or two of improved high iso performance is akin to wanting your next family car to go 1,000 mph, yes there might be a car or two that can go that fast but you wouldn’t want to pay for it and even if you did it isn’t practical.
