Canon 70D and 7D Mark II Rumors

Several rumors of upcoming Canon DSLRs appeared in a Japanese magazine, along with what appears to be confidence ratings on the chance that they’ll surface in 2013. Atop the list are the Canon 70D and 7D Mark II with a 70% and 85% likelihood chance, respectively, that we’ll see them this year as obvious replacements to the current Canon 60D and 7D. ¬†Key rumored specs for the 70D and 7D Mark II include a 24MP APS-C sensor and sensitivity up to ISO 25,600.

Canon EOS-M2 and EOS 1DSx Rumors

Other rumored cameras include a new mirrorless model, the EOS-M2, which is assigned a 80% likelihood for 2013 release, and an EOS-1DSx at a 50% coin flip and is probably the oft-rumored high-MP pro DSLR.

Thanks for those junks. We are not interested in “Noise Champion” boxes. Of course non-photogs are the main customers and they will buy them.

you my not be interested in noise champions, but most people in the know are. I guess so speak for self. all info is food for fodder.

Very simple basic physics is: Bigger pixels = Cleaner images. Easy to see that the same manufacturer makes the full-frame sensors with comparatively less pixels – Why?

Because knowledgeable people cannot be fooled. FYI, full-frame sensor area is more than double than that of 1.6 crop sensors.

check out S/N and algorithms before u go out on the tech limb. Maybe MIT research and Stanford would be the place to start. Good luck with it.

It’s the total lighted area that’s important. If you double the pixel count, each pixel is smaller and each takes up less light, but the number of pixels increased to fully compensate. See DxO tests, high pixel sensors are in fact better (and newer). Link:
