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…]
Rumors of a high megapixel DSLR from Canon have really been heating up since the 1D X launched with “only” 18.1MP. The rumors persisted after the 5D Mark III rolled in at roughly the same resolution as its predecessor.
Now comes a spec list from Canon Rumors for a Canon EOS 3D rumored to weigh in at a whopping 46MP . . . that’s 10MP more than the current resolution king – the Nikon D800.
Canon EOS 3D Spec Rumors
- 46 MP
- 3.7 frame per second
- Dual DIGIC 5+
- ISO: (25) 50-6400 (12800)
- AF: Same as 1DX
- USB 3
Even though I used to joke about cameras with resolution at 40MP, Canon has plenty more room to work with on a full frame image sensor given that it developed a 120MP APS-H sensor more than two years ago. And we just thought the megapixel wars were over . . . .
Who would pick up a 46MP Canon DSLR? What price would you be willing to pay for this camera?
