One of the videos I've watched so far, is very specific about the new Sensor. It says Canon designed it from the ground up.


Call me Amanda please :)

I've lost my place with which 'review' said what. But it's definitely out there. I think it might have been Digital Camera that is the one in question

Low ISO DR is a niche "issue", and Canon recognises it for what it is.

So is ultra-high ISO. You only need it if you routinely shoot moving subjects in very low lighting without flash.

So is ultra-high-performance AF that can track a black housefly flying on a cloudy, moonless night. Current AF is so good that you only need better if you shoot fast- and erratically-moving subjects in dim lighting, at distances where the glass needs to make substantial movement to keep focus.

So is being able to shoot at 14fps. You only need it if your subjects are moving very fast and you need to catch that 'exact' moment in time (and video cameras can do it better anyway).

So is video performance in a still camera. Those who don't shoot video don't care about it.

Yet Canon, as well as every other manufacturer, has made leaps and bounds in all these categories in the last five years. And every other manufacturer, bar Canon, has also made leaps and bounds in image quality at low ISO.

Just compare an ISO 100 shot of a challenging scene from the D700 with one from the D800. Not only do you have three times the pixel count, but the overall image is also sharper, with more details in the shadows and greater colour depth.

Then compare the same shot taken with a 5D2 with one taken with a 5D3. Minimal difference, except that the crosshatching in the shadows has been replaced by subtle pinstripes.

Not much detail just says:

“(20.2 MP)…which is actually the same resolution as what we’ve got in our 70D. But this is actually a brand new sensor. What we’ve done is we’ve redesigned the microlenses, that are actually on each individual pixel, to make the camera more efficient, so it will give you better image quality especially in low light conditions”. – Dave Perry, Canon UK

Is the 16000 ISO with expansion or can we expect to actually use it?

Expansion takes ISO up to 51,200.

No, mRAW or sRAW? For sport shooting this is somewhat important. Smaller RAW while I don't use it, I can see the benefit for anyone shooting sport or high pace action. Lower resolutiin=smaller file size=more buffer frame=more shooting buffered frames.

Check out the specs (external link):

Still Image Type JPEG: Fine, Normal (Exif 2.21 [Exif Print] compliant) / Design rule for Camera File system (2.0),
RAW: RAW, M-RAW, S-RAW (14bit, Canon original RAW 2nd edition),
Digital Print Order Format [DPOF] Version 1.1 compliant

You really think you'll need to shoot more than 31 frames in a single burst?

Ah, I missed that, only looked at DPR, but other wise that is a burst of 3 sec or 3 burst of 1 sec.

I'm home now so I can watch the vids, thanks all.

Just incase I miss it, does it focus at f/8 on centre point for x2 TC's + big f/4 lenses?
