Canon 1Ds-X Big-Megapixel DSLR Tipped to Be Unveiled in New York This October

Just a few days have passed since Canon introduced its highly anticipated DSLR, the 7D Mark II, on the grounds at Photokina 2014 with bells and whistles. The flagship model takes advantage of an APS-C sensor and arrives with a slew of improvements compared to the previous model.

However, this was the sole DLSR the company launched during the event. Now rumors uncovered on the FredMiranda forums claim Canon might have another DSLR up its sleeve, which is due to be unveiled soon enough.

Canon to unleash a PRO-level DSLR soon

It appears Canon is planning a special event that’s scheduled to be held at the Javits Center in New York City next month, where the photo giant will tackle the big-mega pixel realm. The camera to be unveiled is expected to be marketed as the 1Ds-X and will tout a 46-megapixel sensor. It is said that the company will have it ready in time for the PhotoPlus Expo 2014 event, which is going to take place towards the end of next month, so we might get to take a glance at it there. Canon should be rushing things along while its big-megapixels business is concerned, because Nikon is already one step ahead with its D800 and D810. So if we are to trust the sources as accurate, the next big thing from Canon should surface in a month or so.

Specs of the new DSLR remain a mystery

The specifications of the device haven’t been leaked out, but as we advanced towards the rumored announcement date, they are most likely to make a debut online. So except for the fact that the camera will boast a 46MP sensor, there’s nothing much we could tell you. At this point we could hypothesize that the camera won’t be based on a multi-layered design, but we shouldn’t cancel out any scenarios for the time being. In all possibility, the 1Ds-X name isn’t even the name that Canon has choosen for its pro-level DSLR, so like we have seen many times before, the device could end up on the market under a total different name.

Expect the camera to come with a big price tag. For the time being, the company’s flagship 1D X is still available for pickup from Amazon with a $6,799 / €5,289 price-tag. By comparison, the new DSLR should be marketed for around $8,000-$9,000 / €6,234-€7,014. Keep an eye on us as we bring you more updates about the exciting but elusive Canon 1Ds-X big-megapixel DSLR.
