Hi Josh,

I'm not sure that Canon has announced it yet, but there are reports and images of it on the internet.

BTW my info says it's capable of 16 frames/sec.

Cheers,
Bart

Sounds like an excellent pro camera. I don't need one, not being a pro.

But built-in GPS with a great looking prism... it reminds me of some of those Russian spy planes with radar antennas protuding out of the fuselage. ;)

If the rumored 800 mbps spec for video is confirmed, this may be one of the best 4K video cameras around.

For the rest it would seem that the still specs are pretty underwhelming, but real world AF performance will be by far the single most important characteristic of this camera for its intended usage, so the spec sheet pretty much tells us nothing. We can assume it will be better than anything before it, what we don't know is whether it will be as better/similar/worse than the D5. But then again, they are likely to be so close in overall performance that few people will consider switching, so the only question that matters is "is it better enough than the 1Dx to motivate current users to upgrade?".

Cheers,
Bernard

I can tell you having already seen the camera in action, held it and used it that real world ISO is probably close to 3 stops better than the current 1DX (which is still brilliant). AF is also improved considerably and IMO is the best I have ever tried or used. As a user of 2 1DX's in my day to day photography the update to ISO performance and AF make it a no brainer upgrade.

Josh,

3 stops better? Like in ISO51,200 as good as ISO6,400?

That would be very impressive.

Was that raw or jpg?

Bernard

Lets just clarify before we get carried away.. I am referring to what I call the usable ISO range. That is ISO 100 - ISO 12,000. After that I loose interest in shooting subjects I cant see in the dark.

Ok, but you still consider 6,400 on the 1Dx II as good as 800 on the 1Dx?

Is that raw vs raw, jpg vs raw or jpg vs jpg?

Bernard

I would like to know more about the new sensor and cleaning up the blacks, this hints at an improved DR.
When the 50mp D5 came out I wondered if that was the last throw of the dice for the old tech, I would expect to see any dr/sensor readout improvments to filter down fairly quickly to the 5.
I shoot with a 1D X  at the moment but the 5 is becoming more suitable to my needs these days.

Thanks for the confirmation. Considering how surprising your findings are, I just wanted to be sure I had correctly understood them. ;)

We have never seen in the past an improvement of more than 1+ stops btwn successive generations of cameras, but Canon was able to pull 3 stops this time around.

Extremely impressive!

Bernard

That's interesting as I have held onto the 1D X because all things considered I haven't seen a better low light option out there.

Australia, as always, is the first at announcements.

Specs will sure come soon once all the countries got in on the news.

If Canon had improved the low light by 3 stops I think it would of been the headline as that would be a major sensor upgrade, something completely new and a knock out blow.
A bit of over enthusiasm which happens, I would like it to be 3 stops better, I doubt very much they achieved that.

Canon High ISO in the field Report Abraham doesn't mention stops - but if you doubt.. then just do your own testing in due course.

Not that the video spec doesn't look useful for those that need it.
