What Will Be The Name Of Canon’s Big Megapixel DSLR?

A few days ago we reported new tidbits about the big megapixel DSLR Canon is supposed to work on. Then we referred to EOS-1D Xs for the name. Today, Keith over at Northlight Images got word that «that the 3D name is still being considered for a high MP camera, but that an integrated grip and 1 series build quality is considered important».

I didn’t so far get a clear statement about the name from my sources, though EOS-1D (plus something) has been named more often. All I can say is that I have been told that the big megapixel DSLR will come in an EOS-1D shaped body. Honestly, I think that a camera named EOS 3D would be misleading. Lot’s of people would think it has something to do with 3-dimensional images.

Humor: Canon L Lenses vs. Cinema Lenses (NSFW)

This is a somewhat different yet humorous lens comparison video. Alert: there is some nudity (you’ll see boobs, and chest hair).

Jonathan Yi wants to show how well Canon’s Cinema lenses perform compared to the excellent Canon L lenses. I am sure you will agree that everything shot with the Cinema lenses looks much better ;-)

Canon L lenses at B&H | Adorama | Amazon, and can be rented at borrowlenses

Look What You Can Make With A Canon EOS 7D And An EF 100-400mm Lens (Machu Picchu High Res Pic)

This will most probably not be part of the daily assignment or the holiday pics of the majority of the photographers out there. Never the less it is impressing.

Rainforest Expeditions tour director Jeff Cremer visited Peru’s Machu Picchu back in November 2012 and shot 1,920 photos using a Canon EOS 7D (price & specs) and a Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS lens (price & specs). The whole shooting lasted almost two hours. The images have later been stitched together, the overall rendering time was one and a half hour. The final image has a size of 297,500 x 87,500 pixels and a resolution of 15.9 Gigapixels.

You can see the image and read the interview with Jeff Cremer here. The image can also be seen here.

Refurbished EOS 7D at the Canon Direct Store for $1,019.32 (click here).

Canon EOS 7D price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, Digitalrev, eBay
