Canon unveils 18MP, full-frame EOS-1D X with super metering

10/18, 12:00am

Canon EOS-1D X packs dual DIGIC 5, ISO 51200

Canon brought out a long-anticipated new full-frame EOS pro camera in the EOS-1D X. The 18-megapixel camera unifies the EOS-1D camera line and is a major leap in performance over the 1D Mark IV with two DIGIC 5 main processors with about 17 times more raw power than the DIGIC 4s they replace. A DIGIC 4 still sits inside as a third processor but here is used for very advanced metering: it drives an Intelligent Subject Analysis system that, with a 100,000-pixel metering sensor, can check brightness, target colors, and human faces to get more precise exposure without burdening the main processors.

Canon reveals EOS 50D semi-pro DSLR

08/26, 7:40am

Canon EOS 50D

Canon began its fullest assault on the camera market pre-Photokina with the launch of the EOS 50D. The spiritual successor to the EOS 40D boosts the sensor to 15.1 megapixels and is consciously targeted at the extremely high ISO ranges shooting of newer Nikon cameras. By fitting gapless microlenses on top of the pixels, Canon says it has cut back on noise and can introduce two ultra-high sensitivity modes at ISO 6,400 and ISO 12,800 while also producing a cleaner image across the normal ISO 100-3,200 range.

The sequel is now thought to have a new 16-megapixel, full-frame sensor that supports up to ISO 25,600, matching the same performance as the Nikon D3 in very dark environments. The figure may be just for marketing's sake, the alleged source warns. Shots from the D3 at such a high range often exhibit very visible noise.
