Canon EOS-1S High Megapixel DSLR Tidbits, Prototypes Out In The Wild?

The Canon EOS-1S high megapixel DSLR may have the body of the EOS-1D X

Rumors about the Canon EOS-1S high megapixel DSLR are getting stronger. More information is leaking and confirms the previous tidbits. We can be confident that something regarding a high megapixel DSLR (46MP are rumored) will actually happen. However, the new information are stating that if Canon announces the high megapixel DSLR (supposedly named EOS-1S) in 2012 it will be just a development announcement, and not an announcement of imminent release. Other Canon gear has been announced years before being released. The good news: It should be rather sure that Canon is testing prototypes.

The  Canon EOS-1S high megapixel DSLR is said to have the same housing of the EOS-1D X, 10fps and 46 MP. It is also said that the EOS-1S will employ a new sensor technology that delivers unseen low ISO performance. And a seldom seen price tag too: it’s said to get over the counter for $9000. That’s all we know so far. I wouldn’t bet on the name, it is not the first to be suggested (3D and 4D and 1D-S were rumored). However, suggestions that it will be a “D”-less name are getting louder. So let’s call it EOS-1S for the time being. A last word about the new sensor technology: It has been suggested that Canon could introduce a new DSLR category with the Canon EOS-1S high megapixel DSLR.

It’s time that Canon comes back with some exciting technological break-through. A 46MP monster by Canon has to be a killer DSLR. We will see…

Latest Canon EOS 7D Mark II Rumor Suggests 25Mp and Announcement January 2013 (with EOS 700D, and no 70D)

canbody

The latest Canon EOS 7D Mark II rumor says Canon will announce the camera in January 2013 (before CP+, possibly during PMA). The Canon EOS 7D Mark II might be announced along with the EOS 700D, and there should not be an EOS 70D for some time. Instead of the EOS 70D, the EOS 7D with a reduced price tag will target the market share of the EOS 60D.

Regarding the (rumored) specs of the Canon EOS 7D Mark II: 10fps and a sensor with no more than 25MP.

It's also said that Canon is leaking false rumors to track leaks. :-)

New Rumor Suggests EOS-1S Is The Name Of Canon’s Big Megapixel DSLR

EOS-1S is the name of Canon's big megapixel DSLR

More news about Canon’s rumored high megapixel DSLR. Most of us are quite confident that Canon will announce a high resolution DSLR by the end of October. While the few rumored specs didn’t change so far, there a new tidbits about naming and price. EOS 3D has been around for a while, now there are rumors that suggests an abandon of the “D” in the naming scheme. A new rumor suggests EOS-1S is the name of Canon’s big megapixel DSLR. The other news concerns the price, which is said to be around $9000. Looks more like a new category of DSLR than a competitor to other DSLRs.

Moreover, it’s speculated that new technology will employed for the first time in the EOS-1S. This new tech should give a superior low ISO performance of the sensor. It is still said that the new big megapixel (46 are rumored) will have the same housing as the EOS-1D X, although this will hardly be a firmware-hattrick as with the EOS-1D C.

After EOS 3D and 4D, EOS 1D-S, now I am very curios to know if EOS-1S is the name of Canon’s big megapixel DSLR. At least it sounds credible.

Hoax Or Real? An EOS 3D Shows Up On B&H’s Catalog, But Then Disappers

 

The people at Nine Volt made a search on B&H’s camera store, and they searched for the EOS 3D, and they got a result. The specs are those that were already rumored over the web. And the housing too: the rumors we reported were saying that the fabled EOS 3D may come in a EOS-1D X shaped body (like the one you see in the pictures).

Last night, in inadvertent search for a Canon 3D on B&H’s web site gave the below result. Clicking on the link gave an error page. This morning the search no longer produces the same result. Does B&H know something in advance about the 3D? Maybe an October announcement is really coming.

So, the question is if this is a well made hoax, or if it is real. Most dedicated sites believe it is a fake. I am not 100% sure. When asked by PetaPixel the people over at Nine Volt claimed it is not photo-shopped.

[Rumor] EOS 5D Mark II May See A Substantial Price Drop Next Week (down to $1699)

Not the usual rumor about specs and features, but about an upcoming concrete price drop for the EOS 5D Mark II. Quoting Canon Rumors, the 5D2 could go down to $1699:

I’ve been told by a couple of people that the Canon EOS 5D Mark II will see a big price drop this coming week in the USA, we should see it in other countries as well. We’re told the new price will be $1699 USD for the body until they’re all gone, which won’t take too long I don’t think.
