A month or so back we heard a few rumors of a new Canon 1 Series camera with a high MP count that would be launched in 2014. I’ve heard two different resolutions for cameras in testing – 75MP+ and 44.7MP – both are full frame sensors. The latest rumors narrow a launch date for a new camera situated above the Canon 1D X to Q2 2014.
The new camera would be position in price similar to the 1Ds Mark II and III models (figure $8000+), which is consistent with prior pricing rumors of a $9000 EOS 1S. Of course, there’s nothing solid attached to that name, but that is one that’s been thrown around for better than a year now.
This latest word presumably comes from mentions to select Canon dealers and is geared toward “enhancing the relevance of top ‘Pro’ dealers to professional users, including medium format users.”
If you have more info on the next Canon 1 Series, please reach out via the contact form and let us know.
