The CAMSLINGER 160 Street Edition bag introduces a new concept of carrying a mirrorless camera on the hip or as a sling bag (works also for a superzooms or a smaller DSLR). It’s not a solution to transport large amounts of gear as the bags are on the smaller side, but for daily live when out shooting with smaller gear it will be a very quick and good solution. I have one and I love it. The prizes: Cosyspeed CAMSLINGER 160 Street Edition bag Cosyspeed

The Unicorn is Back: Canon EOS 3D with 50MP Rumoured Again (2 versions)

Canon EOS 3D
18 months ago this camera was rumoured to be the EOS 3D

This is the unicorn-rumor, Canon’s fabled high megapixel camera. The rumor mills are crunching it since years. Now we have another push. Let’s hope Santa is listening.

Not just one but two of the unicorns are said to appear soon. While it has always been 46MP that were rumored, now it’s 50MP. One of the unicorns is said to come without low-pass filter (would be good for astrophotography, and for extreme sharpness fanatics). Both cameras are said to come with a form factor that’s not the same as the EOS-1 line, and to get positioned above the EOS 5D Mark III. Obviously the moniker “EOS 3D” is back in game.

Oh, almost forgot it: these cameras are expected for Q1 2015. Before it was 2014, 2013 etc. First mentions date back to 2008-2009.

CW’s take: no comment. This is a rumor that floats around since years. Every now and then it gets an update :-)

This is the last day to win a COSYSPEED Camslinger bag and other prizes – take part in our giveaway.

Ken Rockwell Speculates about the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (36MP, $3800, 7fps, 65 points AF)

Canon EOS 5D Mark IVCanon EOS 5D Mark IV
This is an unusual source for a Canon rumor, a new entry among the many contradicting and confusing Canon rumor mills.

Ken Rockwell posted some speculations about the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, and they are less absurd than someone may think. In substance:

  • 36MP sensor
  • $3800
  • 7fps
  • 65 point Auto-focus
  • 98% viewfinder coverage
  • 3.2″ display with 1,280,000 pixels
  • 2 CF card slots
  • Announcement March 17 2015
  • Available late April 2015

All in all these specs are more plausible than many people may think (and possibly more plausible than all the things the hyper-active rumor mills may spit out in the next months).

What I can confirm from rumors I got so far (all from anonymous sources) are the announcement in Q1 2015 and the AF system. Not mentioned by K. Rockwell is 4k video recording, something I was tipped more than once. I am pretty sceptical about 98% viewfinder coverage.

What do you think?
