p.1 #1 · Canon Camera Predictions for 2013


The Petapixel web site is reporting that the latest issue of the Japanese magazine, Impress, is making some predictions about Canon cameras to be released during 2013. You can read it here.

Love the reference to the 1DXs. I never thought that unifying the two bodies was a good idea. If true, it will be interesting to hear all the Canon marketing people backtracking on their statements that the 1DX replaces both the 1D and 1Ds. Will look like all it was was another price hike as they could not sustain the $4999 price model of the 1D.

I'm up for a Nikon D7200 with a 14-24. Just to make my 5D MKIII jealous.

1DsX

Canon marketing people won't have to say anything about past statements. What did Nikon say after introducing their first FF DSLR?

If that were the case - completely. Talk about wilfully taking a key to a beautiful paint job. Canon... grrrr .

That is just poor translation. They are talking about 3" articulate LCD, not 3 fps.

Assuming this turns out to be true, why would they bother to make any statements at all about unification? If they are releasing a 1DXs in 2013 they probably started to develop it in 2011.

...because it's appropriate for the time.

It should be noted that sometimes the so-called official company representatives who made those sweeping stupid statements do not know what goes on in Japan HQ.

That is also why I never trust what Canon and Nikon reps from USA and Europe say about their company products and roadmaps. Only the Japanese reps know what they are saying.

I would be very surprised if we got to this time next year and the highest resolution pro Canon body was still only 18 meg.

I think there will almost certainly be a high meg 1DXs or similar in due course

I wouldn't be surprised if all those cameras get announced within the next year, but of course specs would not be exact.

I expect now after reading the latest rumors the high MP body coming as another 1D body series with presumably a steep price tag. Definitely a year of rest and no upgrading for me since Canon will likely miss out on a real D800 or predecessor competitor model.

But perhaps a multilayer sensor without an AA filter?

My predictions for 2013...I'm going to enjoy photography, perhaps shoot more often.

^^^ That sounds nice. It's tough to get excited about an unknown camera model that is likely 6+ months away from solid specs.

They edited the article and removed the reference to 3fps. Now it makes more sense.

Hasn't Canon released everything I can't afford already?

My prediction is the 1DXs or whatever it is called will make the 1Dx look inexpensive.

p.1 #20 · Canon Camera Predictions for 2013


Canon hasn't been making new lens designs with new prices and truly excellent resolution and clarity, for nothing.

The only question is, as we are all asking, when will the next high MP body (above the 5DIII) come out and what will the pixel count be?

I think we will see a 30+ megapixel Canon body in 2013, but what form/nomenclature it takes I couldn't say, Canon has been reliably unpredictable the past year.

I'm not original in saying this, but it seems to me that Canon has prioritized the elements that constitute overall performance in their own way. They've been updating their available focal lengths and types, ensuring very high performance for the new ones (and prices to match), they've added radio transmission to their top-tier speedlight system, are adding Wi-Fi and GPS either discretely or in body, are now using touchscreens, finally burped out a digital EOS IX (sans mirror), etc. etc.

The major competitor(s) are probably fine just buying sensors from Sony, but surely Canon is working on what it can aside from that. Until they come out with something really new in the sensor department, they improve the line in a variety of other ways in the meantime.

But the market has changed a lot in the past three years Canon looks to be building a foundation for a house that needs to have a roof, and soon.
