Both Northlight Images and Canon Rumors, arguably the top two resources for what’s what in the world of Canon’s release forecasts, have each received similar word from known sources reiterating a long-standing rumor that points to the camera maker’s presumable plans to release a high-megapixel DSLR – a shooter that would reportedly share the same exterior characteristics as the EOS-1D X/1D C.

A few isolated instances of internal dust particles making their way to the edges of the new Nikon D600′s imaging sensor have recently been uncovered by early reviewers such as the reputable DPReview, and by the first wave of consumers who dished out the funds to shoot with Nikon’s new full-frame beauty.
Canon’s leap into the 40+ megapixel DSLR territory has been rumored for quite some time, even appearing on B&H’s product search page earlier in the week, rekindling the notion of its existence and foreseeable announcement.

First off, if you haven’t had the chance to check out Marvel’s latest superhero action-adventure flick, The Avengers, I strongly urge that you do so – it’s a fantastic film. Moreover, if you are a Canon HDSLR shooter, today’s news might give you an added incentive to give it a watch.

With the impending worldwide releases of Nikon’s two new video capable, full-frame DSLR’s in the D4 and D800, Redrock Micro, the HSDLR rig makers that needs no formal introduction, have acknowledged the company’s advancements in DSLR video and have opted to create rigs of the limited edition variety that compliment the aforementioned cameras.
Unfortunately, the originally scheduled due date of March won’t pan out for Canon’s flagship DSLR, as the camera maker has announced that the EOS-1D X’s release has been has been pushed back to “late April.”
