| p.1 #1 · 5D3 (and 1Ds4) specs rumor on NL (sound potentially very nice with 5D3 going pro body features) |
"Won't be using the same sensor - 5D3 is evolutionary, but 1Ds4 is seen as big jump. Designed to complement each other.
Pro grade AF (not 7D like)
2 stops better ISO than 5D mk II
New video codec, not Raw but MPEG 4:2:2
New video functions such as tracking focus in Video mode
Compact body with improved weather sealing
Same introduction price as the predecessor
for the rest see:
I have to say that would sound pretty awesome IF Digic V is fast enough to properly scale video off the entire sensor, however I'm a bit wondering if it could. It coudl surely do way more than 6fps, then again they may be limited by the mirror box this time hopefully and not by processing speed, a faster than 6fps FF mirror box starts adding probably a $200 for every extra fps I'd take a wild guess at.
Ideally I'd have it 28MP for more reach, 24 doesn't really give one anything new there. But I really like the finally hitting 6.3fps! and really like the talk of full on 1 series level AF! And if the stops better DR/SNR is real at the RAW level and not just more of the due to the new JPG engine garbage, well that would be nice too! So if the thing can only manage to finally sample video properly, this really sounds pretty dang awesome!
However, it also sounds incredibly, almost exactly to every last detail (minus the mention of proper video scaling which wasn't mentioned either way), like the wish lists I have posting all over for the last few years so it is quite likely someone just copied my list or, even more likely, simply had the same thoughts and sent it in as a rumor as not once before have the arriving cams ever matched any of my wish lifts before hah.
