Is Dual Pixel Tech Coming to the EOS 5D Mark III?

canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-1-1024x819

PlanetMitch over at Planet5D speculates about the possibility of adding Dual Pixel Technology to the EOS 5D Mark III. With Canon adding it to the Cinema EOS line, can we expect the same thing for the EOS lineup as well?

Mitch asked Canon, and received the types of answers you’d expect.

This would certainly change the game for the EOS 5D Mark III and adding features to an existing Canon DSLR.

Says PlanetMitch
“Tho of course, we don’t know if it is going to be added to the Canon EOS 5D Mark III or even the Canon EOS C300 and who knows how long Canon has been putting Dual Pixel capable sensors out… but we do now know that they shipped cameras with capable sensors before they had the firmware necessary to make it all work.”

Hardware Hack for EOS Cameras Coming Soon? [CR1]

canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-1-1024x819

We received an email stating that a certain company is getting ready to announce a hardware hack for Canon EOS cameras. Only the EOS 5D Mark III was listed, but other EOS cameras are likely.

The hack requires the mainboard inside the camera gets replaced with the modified custom board. It was not mentioned how, or where you’d send your camera to get the modification. I’d think they’d have to give away a few modified cameras to get the trust of the consumer. The reported cost of the mod is $1000 USD.

As for the modification itself, it’s said it will “greatly improve dynamic range, video sharpness and performance of the EOS 5D Mark III.”

I’ve heard about these types of things in the past, and nothing has ever come of them. This one seems a bit different, but we’ll have to wait and see.

More to come…

Olympus OM-D E-M10 shooting experience and studio tests published

em10.jpg

The Olympus OM-D E-M10 was announced about a month ago, the third addition to the digital revival of the OM line. It lacks the weather sealing of its siblings but inherits a number of excellent features from the existing OM-D models. Sound enticing? We've gotten familiar with the E-M10 over the past few weeks. The full review is on the way but for now, read our shooter's report, and compare the E-M10 to a growing list of cameras in our new studio test scene.
