Thread title says it all.

When you look into those crystal balls do you see any hope that Canon will introduce a high MP camera to rival the Nikon D800 anytime soon?

Only canon can answer that.
The revisions being made to lenses and their improved sharpness and resolving power would suggest its a when not if.
My guess would be within 2 years  Grin

The rumor mill says 2014. But who really knows.

There is also talk of new sensor fabrication technology to come on line to improve DR and banding noise etc. Perhaps similar technology to Sony's exmor

Hi,

My guess is that it may take some time. Canon is said to build a new (0.18 micron fab). I guess they need better than 0.5 microns to catch Nikon.

Canon could make a higher resolution sensor any day, but it would lag Nikon/Sony sensors even more in low ISO DR than the case is now.

Best regards
Erik

Someone said the other day that this site is not a rumours site and he didn't want it to go that way. I agree. I haven't been on Nikonians for about a year but when I last viewed it the rumours were rife about different lenses/cameras. Hopefully this site won't go that way.

Gosh, so glum.

Nothing quite like a bit of rumour and prophecy to brighten up dreary Sunday.

Quote from the owner of this site, Michael Reichmann, (September 2012).

Medium format backs and cameras used to be where one went for ultimate image quality, especially for high pixel count and wide dynamic range. But the 36 Megapixel Nikon D800 and D800e have thrown that equation into a cocked hat, and now there are rumours of a 46 Megapixel Canon later this year or early next (these rumours are likely true).

Did he post this as a thread with the likelihood that the rumour would multiply out of proportion? Do you honestly think it brightens up a Sunday morning, or any morning?  Grin

Only you can answer that. The consequences of starting a rumour is that it usually multiplies out of proportion with a mixture of stirring, half truths or outright fibs. You may have had the best of intentions in mind but rumours being rumours they are rarely truthful.

You are becoming a little bit obtuse now? Look at your first post and you will see the beginnings of a rumour? I think you should move on from this discussion. Others have mentioned the word rumour. I do not wish for this to get out of hand. My initial post was about this site not becoming a place for rumours. Cool

Then perhaps you should stop mentioning them.

All I did - with Michael's post in mind - was to ask for opinion on the likelihood of a new camera anytime soon.

Thanks to those who replied to my question.

Hi,

Very obviously Canon could make a 46 MP camera by just upscaling the D7 sensor. I don't know why they don't.

Sony, who makes the sensor for the D800 has not released used the 36 MP sensor in the Alpha 99, for untold reasons. I guess that it has things to do with thermal noise, video capability and things like that.

Best regards
Erik

Somebody was starting rumours in the Medium Format Pentax 645 thread. Do the modarators know about this?
