"7.5fps and 22MP. Info direct from canon and that is as good as the rumors get for us. Some big changes to the 5D overall. Should be a fantastic new camera." (see their Facebook page)
1. why would a major, serious company like AquaTech make things up or lie?
2. why would Canon tell them that info and, if they did, why not keep it under NDA? (more planned leaks)
If it is 22MP and 7.5fps, that certainly does sound pretty impressive to say the least. Faster than I would have expected, if true.
of course making 22MP when you already developed an 18MP sensor seems odd, although maybe they feared marketing impact of dropping down, still.... and 7.5fps does seem faster than expected.... but why would Aquatech every lie?
hmmm.... Ashton Kutcher works for Nikon no? Maybe he has brought Punk'd back to life and this will be the first new episode.
Maybe it will have this crazy fast fps and some really souped up AF and video and only lose to D800 on MP and since 22MP really is a pretty decent number, 7.5fps gripless, top AF, 22MP might beat 36MP, top and yet not as good AF, 4fps gripless.
Who cares who beats who? They are just cameras for the vast majority of people. If you own Canon stock...then I can understand your need to "beat" Nikon, but then this is the wrong forum for investment discussions.
You are misreading things.
I'm obviously not a blind Canon fanboy who has to have Canon beat Nikon.
If you are going to speculate on what they may do in terms of specs you have to get into their strategies.
And you forget the main point that if they had done something to whip Nikon in the past it would've been a nice, nice camera for us to use.
If Canon comes out and beats Nikon in a big way then it would mean you could get a much nicer camera and stick with the same UI and lenses no?
Today's cameras are all very capable of producing amazing photos. The new up and coming cameras will just improve on this. I am in my Canon system for the long haul. If there is something lacking in today's camera, it will be available tomorrow. I just go out and take photos with what I have in hand. Getting caught up in the "feature race" distracts from my photography. I like to keep abreast of the new things...but I don't let new cameras make me lust for the latest greatest. Then again, most of my photography is landscapes which the 5d2 does just fine.
