Impress Japan Canon Prediction For 2013 – Update

Update: the Xitek forum thread where the scanned pages showed up is here (thanks Mike)

Japanese magazine Impress published their Canon predictions for 2013. They are usually very accurate, so we should take this seriously. The scanned magazine page appeared on the Chinese Xitek forum. The figure near the images are the probability percentage estimates.

In brief:

  • EOS 7D Mark II will have a newly developed sensor, 10fps burst rate, and ISO up to 25600
  • EOS 70D will have same sensor as 7D Mark II, burst rate limited to 3fps, ISO 25600
  • EOS M2, the second iteration of Canon's mirrorless camera will be released in 2013
  • EOS 1DSx, that's the name of Canon's high megapixel DSLR.

That's it. We can only wait…. :-)

Rumor: Does Canon Have A 39.3MP Sensor Out In The Wild? (and Digic 6 tidbits)

This is another rumor concerning the fabled 3D. Canon Rumors reports that they have been

[…] told that multiple large megapixel sensors exist, and one that is sure to reach market is a 39.3mp sensor.

There was also a mention of the next image processing unit, which should be the Digic 6:

There is also a suggestion that we will see DIGIC VI processors before the larger megapixel camera(s) reach the market in late 2013 or early 2014.

Finally, it is suggested that there will be APS-C related and lens announcements/releases before the large megapixel camera(s) will be presented.
