Canon EOS 7D Mark III to feature 28MP sensor? (and more specs) [CW2]

 

canon rumorscanon eos 7d mark iii

A few weeks ago we were tipped about the EOS 7D Mark III. We have now a new rumor we got from a new source.

The rumor suggests that the EOS 7D Mark III will

  • feature a newly developed 28MP sensor
  • be in general more video-oriented
  • have 4K video
  • have a tiltable touch-screen
  • be more upscale than the EOS 7D Mark II
  • have a richer feature set compared to the 7D Mark II
  • introduce a new Canon APS-C image sensor generation
  • have the same introductory price as the EOS 7D Mark II

Still nothing neither particularly exciting nor really surprising (it’s still too early). The most interesting point is the one stating the EOS 7D Mark III will “introduce a new Canon APS-C sensor generation”, and that it will have 28MP (previously we were tipped with 30MP).

If this rumor is reliable, then we may think that all upcoming Canon APS-C cameras will have new sensor technology with 28MP resolution. Sound plausible at least. The EOS 7D Mark II has a 20MP sensor.

The EOS 7D Mark III might be announced in Summer 2018, though we do not have any reliable information so far.

Please take this with a grain of salt, sound off in the comment section, and stay tuned.

Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera might have a dedicated sensor [CW3]

 

canon rumorscanon rumors
Still nothing sure about Canon’s upcoming full frame mirrorless camera. Just a bit suggesting Canon will use a sensor developed specifically for their full frame mirrorless camera. No EOS 6D Mark II or 5D Mark IV sensor.

The suggestion  seems to come from an internal presentation at Canon. The announcement Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera might happen at Fall 2018.

EOS M1 is rumored to be the moniker of Canon’s full frame MILC.

We know Nikon is now seriously committed to mirrorless, let’s hope Canon eventually does the same.

These are the tidbits about Canon’s full frame mirrorless camera, these:

  • Dedicated full frame CMOS sensor
  • Different sources and sites were reporting that early prototypes exist, at least to be tested inside Canon’s labs. This intel came in 2016 and early 2017.
  • Canon is possibly working on a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount. There have been rumors saying that Canon is delaying this camera because of issues in implementing the EF mount. There is a lot of talk about this. If Canon manages to engineer a full-frame mirrorless camera with EF mount, thus allowing us to use our beloved EF lenses on a smaller and hopefully performing body, it will be a winner. Imagine what you could do with a MILC that goes along with your EF lenses. There is serious a chance we may see this.
  • The latest bit of info I got suggests Canon will announce a full-frame mirrorless camera with a sensor having a resolution of 36-38MP.
  • A possible announcement date is around Photokina 2018, which happens in September.

Stay tuned

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III rumored specifications update [CW4]

Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III Rumored Specifications Update [CW4]

A new, updated specification list for the PowerShot G1 X Mark III emerged from the web.

  • 24.2mp APS-C Sensor
  • DIGIC 7
  • 24-70mm f/2.8-5.6 (35mm equivalent)
  • Dynamic IS
  • Touch AF
  • Dust & water resistant
  • OLED Electronic View Finder (EVF)

We already knew the PowerShot G1 X Mark III was going to have an 24MP APS-C sensor. The 24-70mm lens makes perfectly sense. The EVF is a welcome feature. If this specs get confirmed it will be a well rounded small camera with fixed lens and a large sensor. I add to the list above that the G1 X Mark III will also have Dual Pixel AF.

It was about time for Canon to beef up the PowerShot line-up. Previous rumors suggested more upcoming PowerShot G-series cameras might have an APS-C sensor. At the time of writing I would be a bit cautious with that. Likely the top of the line PowerShot G1 X Mark III might be the only new PowerShot with an APS-C sensor.

Stay tuned…

Canon EOS 7D Mark III specification wishlist surfaces [CW1]

A list of supposed Canon EOS 7D Mark III specifications makes the rounds on the web. Please note. Though being credited to us, we have nothing to do with this list. It’s weird to see people who never credits us eventually doing it with rumors that do bot belong to us.

The specification list below is more of a wishlist, and I am not sure all specs would be possible. We posted a tidbit about the EOS 7D Mark III sensor, murmured to have a resolution around 30MP, and that it will most likely have 4K video (we did not say anything about crop factor). All the rest was added and does not come from us.

  • 30MP sensor
  • 4K video/30p 1.4x
  • 12 fps
  • No AA filter
  • 1D X Mark II focusing
  • Tilting touch screen
  • CFast/SD
  • Built-in Wi-Fi
  • Price around $2,000

While some things make sense and are plausible (12fps, tilting screen, WiFi), others do not.

The EOS 7D Mark III is expected to be announced next year. No exact announcement date is known so far, though you can think it may happen somewhen in summer.

Stay tuned…
