The Big Megapixel
The rumors are starting to fly with Photokina around the corner. Below is the first spec list of a camera said to be Canon’s big megapixel entry.
Please remember, the “EOS-3D” name has been rumored about since about 2005. With every major photo show, we get lots of mentions of its existence. What I do think is different now, is the “3D” name makes a bit more sense. I think this because the “5D” name is no longer the automatic “big megapixel” camera in the Canon lineup. There is room and separation between a 22mp 5D and a 40mp 3D. My other issue with the “3D” name, is the camera wouldn’t be 3D. However, add the “X” at the end and that should help alleviate any confusion with consumers (believe me, there would be).
Below is a spec list I received today, take it with a large grain of salt as it is a new contact. I’m still on the fence as to whether or not we’ll see another DSLR for Photokina, lots of conflicting information (Thanks Canon).
Canon EOS-3D X Specifications
3.7 frame per second
Dual DIGIC 5+
ISO: (25) 50-6400 (12800)
AF: Same as 1DX
Another feature mentioned about the camera is better heat dissipation of the sensor compared to other EOS cameras. Apparently, this results in industry leading low ISO performance.http://www.canonrumors.com …s%29&utm_content=FaceBook
I hope this pans out. I really like the notion of a professional landscape, architectural, and studio DSLR. A smaller 5D III form-factor with 1DX build quality, UI (like no mode dial), and user customization would be wonderful. A native low ISO of 50 along with a greater than 36MP resolution would also be a great score over the D800. Better DR would be nice bonus, but if I can have a high resolution camera that delivers a super clean low-ISO image I'll be very very happy.
