Default CANON uber alles dSLR!

Photokina marks the 15-year anniversary of EOS as a brand. Canon is announcing two new EOS models at the show - the world's highest resolution Pro-camera, the EOS 1Ds and the EOS 300V, which is predicted to become the world’s number 1 selling SLR camera.

The EOS-1Ds features the first ever full frame 35mm CMOS sensor with 11.1 million effective pixels. The EOS-1Ds capture astounding detail & colour, almost doubling the resolution ordinarily considered state of the art for a digital SLR camera in the world today.*

Also new this year are three digital still cameras, all featuring the new high performance DIGital Imaging Core (DIGIC) processor. One of the trio, the Digital IXUS v³, is claiming the position as the world’s smallest 3.2 Megapixel digital camera with optical zoom and LCD monitor.*

Also a microdrive is now a necessary evil for these resolutions especially in raw. A MindStor is also a requirement for all theses data unless one wants to spend a fortune in 1G flash!

Actually, an 11 mp sensor may do a better job on making jpegs so sotrage may not be an issue excpet for the highest possible res.

It may do a better job in jpeg, but the file will be bigger regardless... Also doubling the pixel is not linear since each extra pixel converts somewhat into 3 colors, and depending on how many bit this A/D conversion is (ie 10, 12, 14, or 16-bit) the file will be quite larger. Just look at the 990 vs 5700/D7 output files when we upgraded our cameras! Unless of course one applies more compression...

Obviously! However, it is still true that on can do a better job compressing a big file than a small one.

I do no think that the hogging of memeory/disk will be aneg for these cameras!

I agree! however a 128/256Mb card now is now quite puny for theses cameras, especially in raw...

BTW Help is on the way:

Quote:
The gigabyte CompactFlash card will use four 2-Gbit stacked devices and a controller and will come in a 3.3-mm Type-1 card. Operating voltage ranges from 3.3 V to 5 V. Samples are available now for $700 each.
Toshiba is preparing this faster single-level-cell alternative, which was jointly developed with SanDisk Corp.
