source:Nikon Rumors

An update to the earlier post about the Nikon D800, Nikon Rumors has added pictures and more specs. As a video user I am happy to see 1080 24p video mode. If this rumor is true then the D800 will be third Full Frame 1080p 24fps Video DSLR on the market. However keep in mind it is just a rumor at this stage.

Smaller and lighter than D700
Resolution: 7360×4912 (36MP)
CF+SD memory card slots
Slightly larger display
Excellent video quality, better than D3s
Video modes: 1080p/30/25/24 and 720p/60/30/25/24
AF identical to D3/D700
I still do not have a date for the official announcement


(RUMOR): Nikon D800 36MP sensor w/ pictures to come

source:Nikon Rumors

Nikon Rumors is saying that the Nikon D800 will have a 36MP sensor and that there will be pictures soon. 36mp seems like a hell of a lot of pixels to stuff onto a full frame sensor.

UPDATE:Check the new post here for more specs and pictures.

Canon “4K” Full Frame Video DSLR EOS MOVIE Concept Camera.

Interesting concept but as a member of the lower rung of the production ladder I am not real enthused with 4K. It seems impractical for a lower rung DSLR shooter to be able to effectively deal with that much data. Not impossible but for the foreseeable future it seems like the majority of us will be living in a 1080p world.

A “DSLR” that had the following specs would be nice
14+ stops of dynamic range
1080p at 24, 60, and 120FPS
Clean HDMI out
Optional “battery pack” with audio inputs and headphone jack
Crop mode options @ 1080p(Full Frame, Super 35mm, and 2/3″)
High Resolution EVF (the mirror isn’t really doing anyone any favors in video mode)
“Quality” native codec
Minimal moire, aliasing, and rolling shutter artifacts.
Etc, Etc, Etc

That list is asking a lot, but then again isn’t 4K in a DSLR asking a lot?

HOLLYWOOD, California, November 3, 2011/TOKYO, November 4, 2011 – Canon Inc. today announced that the company is developing a new-concept EOS-series digital single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. Incorporating an enhanced version of the video-capture capability offered in the current EOS-series lineup, the new camera will be ideally suited for cinematographic and other digital high-resolution production applications. The model will be equipped with a 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor and, enabling the recording of 4K video* (at a frame rate of 24P, with Motion-JPEG compression), will make possible the type of exceptional image quality and sublime imaging expression to be expected from the next generation of “EOS Movies.”

The announcement coincides with the launch of the Cinema EOS System, marking Canon’s full-fledged entry into the digital high-resolution production industry. The new professional digital cinematography system spans the lens, digital cinema camera and digital SLR camera product categories.

Further details regarding the new EOS digital SLR camera currently under development, including the product name, specifications and scheduled launch date, have yet to be decided.
EOS Movie: A New Industry Standard

Movie recording has been a standard feature in all newly introduced Canon EOS-series digital SLR cameras since the launch of the EOS 5D Mark II in November 2008. Coupled with the diverse array of lenses in Canon’s current interchangeable EF lens lineup, this feature has heralded rich visual expressive possibilities, delivering such characteristics as beautiful image blur and low noise while also garnering kudos for the mobility and maneuverability made possible through the cameras’ compact and lightweight body designs.

The impressive images created by the combination of Canon EOS digital SLR cameras and EF lenses, known as “EOS Movies,” have already earned their screen credentials on the sets of multiple productions, from television commercials and artist promotion videos to episodic dramas and even major motion pictures.
