Canon EOS 7D Mark III to feature 30MP sensor and 4K [CW2]

Edit: I made a dumb typo in the title. It should have been “…and 4K” and not “and DPAF”. Has been corrected.

This is the first Canon EOS 7D Mark III tidbit I get (thanks). My source suggests the Canon EOS 7D Mark III will feature a 30MP sensor.

The Canon EOS 7D Mark III will most likely be announced next year during summer. It’s very early for reliable rumors. However, this one is at least plausible so I decided to post it.

A 30MP sensor on the EOS 7D Mark III is in the realm of possible. The EOS 7D Mark II features a 20MP sensor, an increase of resolution of 8MP 10MP would be in line with Canon’s conservative politics when it comes to upgrading a product.

For all the 4K fanatics out there: we have been told the 7D3 will have 4K. Well, I guess in 2018 4K is mandatory even for Canon. Finally, the EOS 7D Mark III should be more video-oriented than the EOS 7D Mark II.

Stay tuned.

Canon Rebel SL2 vs. EOS 80D – Which on is better for vloggers?

Canon Rebel SL2 Vs. EOS 80D – Which On Is Better For Vloggers?

The Canon EOS 80D and the Canon Rebel SL2 both have very powerful video features and still are easy to use cameras.

So, which one is better suited for vlogging? The EOS 80D is pretty popular with people producing content for YouTube (as are the EOS M cameras, though). The Rebel SL2 is smaller, lighter, and has been announced recently.

I own an EOS 80D and I have to say it is a great DSLR in a still relatively compact and sturdy body. Nowadays I do most shots with the EOS 80D, and prefer it most of the times over my EOS 5D Mark II.

New Canon gear has been registered at certification authority (EOS 90D or 5Ds Mark II too?)

canon rumors

Nokishita posted a list of yet unannounced Canon gear that has been registered at certification authorities, and one of the cameras could point to the EOS 90D or EOS 5Ds R Mark II.

At the bottom at the list there is a camera that could easily be Canon’s modular Multi-Purpose Camera MM100-WS, of which the company recently announced the development. The second camera in the list (D126741) cold be the replacement for the EOS 80D or EOS 5Ds, for the reason that no Bluetooth module is present which leads to the assumption that no GPS is featured. Actually the only Canon DSLRs eligible for replacement that to not have GPS are the EOS 80D and EOS 5Ds. While registrations at certification authorities usually mean an announcement isn’t far away, I doubt Canon will announce the EOS 90D in 2017. Both the EOS 90D and the replacement for the EOS 5Ds will be a 2018 affair.

In the list we also find the PowerShot G1 X Mark III (which I do not longer think will be be announced in September 2017), another PowerShot camera, and the Rebel T7.

Canon announces development of Free Viewpoint Video System virtual camera system for immersive viewing experience

Various types of video production are employed at sporting events to convey a passion for sports and the thrill of competition. With the development of its Free Viewpoint Video System—which creates an immersive experience that gives the user a sense that they are really there—Canon has achieved a video experience that can be viewed from various angles and viewpoints, expanding the boundaries of visual expression and contributing to the development of video culture.

Canon press release:

MELVILLE, N.Y., September 21, 2017 – Canon Inc. announced today the development of the Free Viewpoint Video System, a new visual solution that incorporates the optical and sensor technologies cultivated by the Company over many years. Using this technology, Canon aims to provide a high-value-added imaging solution for a wide range of applications including sporting events.

Various types of video production are employed at sporting events to convey a passion for sports and the thrill of competition. With the development of its Free Viewpoint Video System—which creates a realistic, immersive experience that gives the user a sense that they are really there—Canon has achieved a video experience that can be viewed from various angles and viewpoints, expanding the boundaries of visual expression and contributing to the development of video culture.
The system comprises several high-resolution cameras set up around the stadium, which are connected to a network and controlled via software to simultaneously capture the game from multiple viewpoints. Afterward, image processing technology renders the videos as high-resolution 3-D spatial data where users can freely move a virtual camera around the 3-D space, resulting in video that can be viewed from various different angles and viewpoints.
The Free Viewpoint Video System offers a completely new, totally immersive visual experience that enables viewers to operate a virtual camera in 3-D space to move freely around the stadium and even experience the simulated physical sensation of being among players on the field during a game. Along with providing a new way to enjoy sporting events, Canon plans to explore such potential applications for this system as training teams and athletes.
