It was just a matter of time before Canon answered the competition, mainly Nikon’s 36 MP, with a new higher resolution Full-Frame DSLR.

The web site petapixel.com announced the news this past week.

The image and specs are from the  Japanese camera site digicam-info,

According to the article, one feature in the camera is reportedly 1.3x and 1.6x crop modes that allow you to only use a portion of the full frame sensor for lower-resolution photographs — useful for if you don’t need a 50.6MP file with every shot.

ISO range is reportedly 100 to 6400. Canon Rumors is hearing that the lower maximum ISO is due to the camera having “a much stronger CFA [color filter array] which will produce much greater color accuracy than anything currently in the Canon lineup.”

Other specs mentioned in the report are: a weatherproof magnesium alloy body, dual processor DIGIC6, 5FPS continuous shooting, 61 autofocus points, EOS iTR AF, a 150,000 pixel RGB/IR photometry sensor, and a “fine detail” picture style.

The official announcement for these cameras should happen sometime next week.

I am personally ready to upgrade and will keep my eyes peeled as I await the delivery date.
