Problem is it'll probably be extremely expensive :\

And completely useless for stills.

Video camera = strong AA filter = soft stills.

Also, what's the point of putting a 36MP sensor into an 8MP 4k-format video camera?

I don't get the point of why they would make a C-series HDSLR. If you want a video camera, get a video camera. If you want a stills camera, get a stills camera. It's like taking pictures with your camcorder.

I can see the point in consumer-level bodies - they're all about versatility.

But, for professional-level bodies, you tend to buy them for a single purpose - either stills or video. Not many people are interested in shooting both still and video, and even fewer are good at doing both.

Editors are wanting ever-higher resolutions.

I'd say the uninformed are wanting more megapixels.

They're the ones we need to sell to.

Also, if you're making huge gallery prints that will be viewed up-close, megapixels are invaluable. Clients will view them at much closer distances than normal - if they see fine detail, they're usually instantly impressed (if the overall image is good as well) but, if all they see is mush, they're not nearly as impressed. And, often, it's the difference between a sale and a 'nice photo' comment.

Personally, what I'd want in a new camera is full weather sealing (having killed off too many 5D2s, while D700s shooting next to me were just fine), greater colour depth, 16-bit output, more low-ISO options (native ISO 1, 3, 6, 12, 25, 50) and as many megapixels as I can stuff into the camera. To hell with frame rate, video and gimmicky in-camera HDR.

[QUOTE=Tonyz;14008456]​Friday came and passed, and we did not get the slightest hint about a high MP camera.

My bet is we'll see one after the bulk of sales are at peak with the 1DX.

I doubt 1D action bodies really peak - more like a slow, steady trickle throughout the lifetime of the camera. After all, most action and sports shooters aren't concerned with having the latest and best IQ - not like studio and landscape photographers.

This is something that I've really noticed lately, especially during the whole "banding and DR debate". Some of them don't seem to understand or even care at all, and they even try to bash other shooters who do care, spewing out stupid one liners like "learn how to expose correctly".

Perhaps a confused attempt to "defend" their new favorite sports camera? Who knows..

One thing is for sure. If the 5D3 had been made with slow continuous shooting speed (let's say 3 fps), I sure wouldn't blame the sporters for being upset about it.

But then again, the 5D line was never aimed at the sports / action crowd. (until now). :confused:

CR guy wrote an update today.

I’ve had two separate comments in regards to Canon entering the big megapixel space. We’re talking 35+ megapixels like the Nikon D800. Both comments mention an announcement sooner than later. No word on whether we’re talking about an EOS-1 or 5D3 style body.

Lots to come in August and September!

I am a little bit worried that the high MP body will be a big bulky 1-series style body.

Let's hope it is smaller than the 5D3, and has over 15 stops of DR! That could be Canon's best camera ever.

Well no, the D800 has 14 stops.

I said 15 stops for Canons next camera, because this is the least Canon should / could (?) do, in order to "beat" the D800, and at least pretend that they are trying to keep up.

If they intend to keep up the sensor has to be a radical design.
I can't see it being in a 1 series body.
