New rumors suggest a Canon EOS 3D will launch later this year as a “bigger brother” to the Canon 5D Mark III. The key improvements over the 5D Mark III would be a much higher resolution sensor and 4K video options. Of course, the price would also be higher than the 5D Mark III as well.
The Canon EOS 3D rumors have been floating around for years, so take this rumor with a heavy grain of salt. If Canon changes up the branding of its DSLRs and drops the “D”, then I wouldn’t feel so weird about a new EOS 3 being released. As the rumors go, the Canon 3D is just an awkward name that is sure to cause some confusion thanks to the recent surge in 3D technology segments. Thankfully, 3D cinema is on the decline; however, the timing would still be tough to release a camera called the “3D” that has a heavy set of cinema camera features.
