New rumors of an upcoming Canon EOS 1 series model suggest that the camera will be announced around the same time as a Nikon D4X in 2014. The significance of this is so that Canon can avoid the debacle it encountered with the 1D X launch.
Recall, that the 1D X was announced in October 2011, but didn’t become available until summer 2012. Meanwhile, Nikon announced the D4 in January 2012 and started shipping units just a couple months later. [click to continue…]
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. [click to continue…]
There are a couple of Canon DSLR rumors for a high-MP DSLR. One is a 75MP+ DSLR and one is a 44.7MP DSLR. Canon’s current flagship DSLR, the EOS 1D X, rings in at 18.1MP. Previous rumors suggest that both DSLRs are undergoing field testing as prototype models. [click to continue…]
Another source has sent me info (thanks) on Canon’s next DSLR, stating that it won’t be the 75MP+ behemoth undergoing field testing now. Instead, the source claims Canon will launch a DSLR with a 44.7MP sensor (8192 x 5462) that provides 4K cinema capability without bayer artifacts, and can do UHDTV with a slight crop.

The info I received last weekend on a Canon 75MP+ DSLR being field tested seems to have shake a few trees and we are now hearing via Northlight Images that a source claims the sensor is a non-Bayer multilayer sensor. Essentially, this would mean that the camera would output a roughly 25MP image created from each of the red, green and blue channels (for a combined total of 75MP) – much like what we see from the Sigma Foveon sensor.

I received word yesterday from a reliable source that a pre-production high resolution Canon DSLR is currently undergoing field testing. The camera is a pro-sized body like the 1D X.
The resolution of the sensor is greater than 75MP.
Wow. [click to continue…]
