Yet another CanonRumors post on the 1Ds MkIV, this time with a really revolutionary bit of information… a square sensor for the 1Ds MkIV.
I had to think about this one when I first read it. Actually, I’m still thinking about it. My gut says this one is going nowhere. I’m going to give it a 1 on the RumorToReality scale.
It’s just too revolutionary a concept for the flagship. I think if Canon tries a square sensor, it won’t be in the flagship. Sure, there is an argument for why a square sensor would be a good thing, just check out the article at www.CanonRumors.com. Dean Francis does a great job of laying out the case for a square sensor.
But, it’s just too revolutionary for the flagship. Maybe the 60D? Maybe the next Rebel model? Maybe even a new slot in the Canon DSLR line-up altogether, but not the flagship. I just don’t see Canon taking that big a chance with the top gun.
But hey… I’ve been wrong before. What do you thinK?
