Canon is rumored to announce a high-megapixel DSLR sometime in 2015. Next Canon full-frame DSLR is expected to feature 52-megapixel sensor.
According to latest rumors from Northlight, the high resolution camera coming from Canon will be based on the 4.2 micron 70D/7D2 pixel design, not the Canon’s long lived 4.3 micron design of the 18mp APS-C sensors. This gives around 52MP at full frame rather than 46MP.
The name of the 52-megapixel DSLR isn’t confirmed yet but we see the EOS-3D name in the rumors. The DSLR camera will not replace the flagship EOS-1D X model and expected to position between the 1D and 5D series.
Canon EOS 3D Might Feature a 52-Megapixel Full-Frame Sensor
Canon is expected to announce several new DSLR and mirrorless cameras in the first half of 2015. It’s also suggested that delays in this camera have come from getting an economical yield from the sensor manufacturing process at full frame.
According to latest Canon Rumors, the price of the upcoming Canon EOS 3D DSLR will stand somewhere between the prices of the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS 1D X, and that it will not go above $4,000.
Some sources also expect that this camera might also be the possible Canon 5D Mark IV. Stay tuned for more information!
