Canon EOS-1D X Mark III And Sony a9 II Have Same Dynamic Range

Canon EOS 1D X Mark III Rumor Canon Cameras Big Game

Some good news about the new Canon EOS-1D X Mark III. Will this stop the Canon-smashing when it comes to dynamic range? Probably not. But then, dynamic range is a measure that already has little importance in real life, so I guess at the end of the day it doesn’t matter.

Photons to Photos allows you to compare the dynamic range of cameras. Below you see graph comparing the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III with the Sony a9 II. Difference is so little that you can say they have the same DR. Moreover, the EOS-1D X Mark III seems to do better up to approx. ISO 600, the Sony does slightly better at very high ISO.

Canon EOS R5: Crippled, Cropped Video, Focus And FPS Limitations, Says Matt Granger

Canon EOS R5 Price

After the Canon EOS R5 development announcement, we know that at least some of the rumored specifications are real.

Never the less, Matt Granger thinks Canon will eventually cripple the EOS R5, i.e. video is cropped, limitations on fps and focus, and whatnot. He explains his thoughts in the video below.

All just a hype? Or can we expect the EOS R5 will be the game changing full frame mirrorless camera its specifications suggest? Sound off in the comment section.

A few days ago we were tipped with a French language online shop where the EOS R5 is listed at €9,999. Likely a mistake.

You can get notified when the Canon EOS R5 will be available for preorder.

Upcoming Canon EOS R5 Price Listed At €9,999 (mistake or real?)

Canon EOS R5 Price

Could it be possible that the upcoming Canon EOS R5 price is set at €9,999?

Luxembourg based site Photo-Mirgain.lu lists the Canon EOS R5 at exactly this price, €9,999 (approx US$10,829, and for the body only). We think (i.e. we strongly hope) this is either a mistake or just a placeholder price.

What do you think, is this the real Canon EOS R5 price?

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Will Break Down In 8 Hours, If Used Continuously (but wait!)

Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Review

Ok don’t get too scared. And bear with us for some math about the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III.

The not-too-serious video below by Ryan Mense does some vey basic math.

The Canon EOS-1DX Mark III does 16 fps, and has a buffer for 1000 shots. That means the buffer can hold 62.5 seconds of shooting.

The EOS-1D X Mark III shutter mechanism is rated for 500,000 shots. According to the figures above, you can fill the buffer for 500 times before reaching max shutter time (500,000/1000 = 500).

Multiplying the 62.5 seconds of shooting the buffer can hold with the number of times you can fill the buffer (500) gets you 31,250 seconds: 62,5*500=31,250.

31,250 seconds are 520.83 minutes are 8 hours 40 minutes and 48 seconds.

That’s it! :-)
