1D4 Frame Rate
An anonymous email says the new 1D4 will be a 12fps camera. This is the reason it is staying APS-H.

New battery and battery grip?

Apparently so.

The Bp-511 has been around a long time and is overdue to be replaced with a chipped and more expensive battery. A new battery grip will contain new ergonomic features. Those features are unknown at this time.

New source says the new Rebel will not have a tilt and swivel screen.

I’m in Cusco at the moment and having a wonderful time. I’ve only spent 1 full day here.

Thanks to everyone for the donations, I will post a pic of the kids you helped later in the week.

  1. actually due to the back focus distance and the size of the primary reflex mirror it is impossible to use a EF-S lens on a larger than APS-C DSLR without destroying the main mirror on the first shot. I would still be in favor of 1.6x dynamic crop, gives you the length on telephoto lenses, if you want to go wide (the only time when EF-S glass is really a must on 1.6x bodies) you just set the crop factor wider and you’re done.

  2. I don`t understand how Nikon`s dynamic crop feature makes any sense at all, never mind being the best of both worlds. You don`t gain any pixel density, so you don`t gain any reach. What`s the point of shooting 5MP images with a tiny VF on a big $$$ camera? I`ve used these Nikons, but would never even consider using the IMO idiotic crop mode. A 1.3x camera with the same pixel count as FF at least actually has more pixel density, so it does “reach” further, though I`m not sure that going 1.3 is the right thing either. I just don`t understand why ppl keep bringing up dynamic crop mode as being useful in any way.

  3. saves time in post and file size if you know you’re going to be cropping to roughly that size. personally I doubt I would ever use it, but there are those who would.
