I’m pretty sure that this is something you’re going to want to see. I’m going to update this site just after midnight E.S.T. tonight.
Oh, that’s just not nice. New toys?
Canon EOS 1D mk IV/V ? I keep hearing about a whole new line of video accessories for these DSLR’s…
can’t wait! Aloha!
5dmkii with 24 fps?

“5dmkii with 24 fps?”
YES, we’ll take it, we’ll take it!
CAN SOMEONE TELL CANON that if 24P on the 5D2 hits too hard on the single DIGIC 4, then set it up so it only records 24P video SILENT. We’ll grab audio separately and sync later, that’s fine.
Paul Reply:October 20th, 2009 at 10:45 am
I know this is OT, But WE ARE GETTING OUR 24P ON THE 5D2!!
HERE IT IS:
12 midnight EST would be the same as 1:00 a.m. EDT, right?!

Do you guys get more sleep or less sleep? The whole waking up with the stock market at 6:30am thing is kind of a bummer.
“I’m pretty sure that this is something you’re going to want to see. I’m going to update this site just after midnight E.S.T. tonight.”
Vincent, I trust we are not going to see you in your jammies……please?
Trevor Meeks Reply:October 19th, 2009 at 8:47 pm
@K Brown, no jammies, it’ll just be him in the nude. LOL
Kent Reply:October 19th, 2009 at 10:00 pm
@Trevor Meeks, shot with a 1Dmk4/5
It can’t be a whole new camera already, and their linup is overstuffed with options already.
Leica’s lineup is smart, efficient, and reduces a lot of costs. 3 cameras, one for the field, one for the studio, and one for the dentists who like the name brand.
But I’ll wait for something new and amazing.
please be a FF 1D4, please, please, please.
its 4.am in germany
I swear if this is the 1D I’m going to sh*t my pants.
@Trevor Meeks, pls don’t!
Trevor Meeks Reply:October 19th, 2009 at 9:22 pm
@Vincent Laforet, Okay… okay… but whyyyy must you wait an hour and a half to tell us?
Let’s see… October 20th, Tuesday… OH SNAP! Something big is coming! And I don’t mean in my pants…
Trevor Meeks Reply:October 19th, 2009 at 9:23 pm
@Vincent Laforet, Okay that came out wrong. I’m just gonna stop now. Too excited.
full frame with 1.3 crop option
video and stuff like that
Vincent, whattya think, like I replied above, if 24P on the 5D2 hits too hard on the single DIGIC 4, CAN it be set it up so it only records 24P video SILENT?
I know, the question here is OT, but andre got me excited with his post.
Paul in Cincy.

Scott Scholtens Reply:October 19th, 2009 at 10:39 pm
@Vincent Laforet, in response to your ‘code': 25,600 ISO? I doubt that you could say even if I got it right (at least not before midnight, eh?)
Will Reply:October 19th, 2009 at 10:39 pm
Holy crap 5 letter??

INTRODUCING THE ULTIMATE MULTIMEDIA IMAGING SOLUTION: THE NEW CANON EOS-1D MARK IV DIGITAL SLR CAMERA
The EOS-1D Mark IV Features a Completely Redesigned 45-Point Autofocus System, Fast 10 fps Continuous Shooting, 16-Megapixel Resolution, Outstanding ISO Sensitivity, and Full HD Video Recording at Selectable Frame Rates
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., October 20, 2009 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, is proud to introduce the next evolution in the EOS 1D series of cameras: the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV Digital SLR camera. The EOS-1D Mark IV is a high-speed multimedia performance monster with a 16-megapixel Canon CMOS sensor, Dual DIGIC 4 Imaging Processors, and 14-bit A/D data conversion, all at 10 frames-per-second (fps), with the widest ISO range Canon has produced to date. This new camera also features 1080p Full High-Definition video capture at selectable frame rates packaged in Canon’s most rugged and durable professional camera body.
The crowning achievement of Canon’s 1D Mark IV Digital SLR is its new autofocus system that starts with 45 AF points including 39 high-precision cross-type focusing points capable of tracking fast moving athletes or wildlife accurately at speeds up to 10 frames per second. With greater subject detection capability than ever before plus a newly redesigned AI Servo II AF predictive focusing algorithm, the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV camera sets new standards for autofocus performance among professional digital SLRs. Whether shooting for the six o’clock news or the front page, the EOS-1D Mark IV Digital SLR is the quintessential camera to freeze fast-moving action with high-speed stills or capture stunning HD video with dynamic color and image quality. To accompany the new EOS-1D Mark IV Digital SLR camera, Canon is also announcing a new accessory, the WFT-E2 II A wireless file transmitter providing photographers with a wide range of professional digital connectivity options.
“Canon works hard to be the imaging leader in all our business endeavors. This goal has fueled our innovation and R&D efforts to engineer the most advanced autofocus system Canon has ever produced. We are proud to announce the camera that will deliver the ultimate in imaging quality to professionals working in all areas of multimedia imaging, whether it’s action photography, photojournalism or HD video and cinematography,” stated Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A.
The Canon EOS-1D Mark IV camera will intrigue professional photographers in virtually every category from photojournalism and sports through nature, wedding, portrait and fashion to commercial, industrial and law enforcement. What makes the EOS-1D Mark IV camera different from its predecessors, in addition to numerous focusing system and image quality improvements, is its exceptional Full HD video capture capability. With this new level of functionality, the 1D Mark IV Digital SLR is destined to appeal not only to professional still photographers but also to a diverse market of professional videographers and filmmakers who are looking for exceptional Full HD video quality, amazing low-light performance, outstanding portability and a level of durability unheard of in most HD video cameras in this price range.
New 45-Point Autofocus System
The new EOS-1D Mark IV Digital SLR camera features Canon’s most advanced Autofocus system to date. It is equipped with a newly developed 45-point AF sensor featuring 39 high-precision cross-type AF points, and an all new AI Servo II AF mode that gives still photographers the power and performance to track and focus a fast-moving subject at speeds up to 10 frames per second. With more than twice as many cross-type focusing points as the EOS-1D Mark III and a new AF sensor construction that improves performance in low light and with low contrast subjects, the EOS-1D Mark IV has greater subject detection capabilities than any previous EOS model. To complete the range of AF improvements, Canon has developed a new AI Servo II AF predictive focusing algorithm that significantly improves responsiveness and stability by making better decisions on focus tracking in a variety of shooting conditions.
Amazing High ISO Performance
Wedding and event photographers shooting in low light without the benefit of a flash can take advantage of Canon’s widest ISO range and highest performance ever. The EOS-1D Mark IV camera’s ISO speed settings range from 100 up to 12,
blah blah blah blah
La La La La La
A powerful share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was doing a little bit similar evaluation on this. He in reality bought me breakfast because I discovered it for him.. smile.
