Canonís Testing a 75MP+ Pro DSLR

Not sure if this will ever reach the market.

Another one hot off the press from Canon Rumors.

But, if it's true, I'll be poor next year.

Very interesting, would love one of them.

Its funny though, Nikon many years ago teamed up with Kodak and they developed a camera, (801s with a battery pack looking thing) actually a brick looking thing connected to the back and bottom of the camera.

This was a digital back that was around 30MP which was back in the late 90's. Never took off, probably size of the unit and the cost was estimated at over a million at the time.

What is funny though is how this technology took so long to jump from under a megapixel to 5MP and know every year to two years they are doubling.

It is so good to be alive and in the technology age.

Sorry I'm nonplussed. 75mp? really? Well depth must be pitiful in a 35mm format.

But if it is a corker of a chip, there is not much Canon glass that would do the sensor justice (I have a suite of L-series lenses and only 3 impress me, the 200mmF2.0, 500mm F4.0 and a Sigma 8mm fisheye (yep I know.... )

Just my 2 cents worth....

Looking around the SMPTE exhibition over the past few days, there is a
hell of a lot of impressive Canon EOS cinema glass on show, as well as
the cinema and regular EOS bodies to go with them.

It could be handy for doing this


Using half of your pixels at 100ISO and the other at 1600ISO!
