The Unicorn is Back: Canon EOS 3D with 50MP Rumoured Again (2 versions)

Canon EOS 3D
18 months ago this camera was rumoured to be the EOS 3D

This is the unicorn-rumor, Canon’s fabled high megapixel camera. The rumor mills are crunching it since years. Now we have another push. Let’s hope Santa is listening.

Not just one but two of the unicorns are said to appear soon. While it has always been 46MP that were rumored, now it’s 50MP. One of the unicorns is said to come without low-pass filter (would be good for astrophotography, and for extreme sharpness fanatics). Both cameras are said to come with a form factor that’s not the same as the EOS-1 line, and to get positioned above the EOS 5D Mark III. Obviously the moniker “EOS 3D” is back in game.

Oh, almost forgot it: these cameras are expected for Q1 2015. Before it was 2014, 2013 etc. First mentions date back to 2008-2009.

CW’s take: no comment. This is a rumor that floats around since years. Every now and then it gets an update :-)
