    • Canon 1DX-II vs. 1DC - Which one would you buy?
      @Andrew Reid just to note the 1DX II has the same incredible 1080p HDMI signal output when set to 4K 1.3x Crop mode. Just like the 1Dc but of course without C-Log.  I have been testing that signal a lot lately on the 1DC. The image is identical to the one shot in 4K then downsampled to HD using Sony Vegas Pro (Lanczos sophisticated downsample). So essentially the HDMI is just saving you the trouble of post scaling and doing a high quality 4K to HD downsample intetnally. I'd expect this to be a harder task to perform hardware and software wise than just to spit the 4K out of the HDMI, so I wonder why and how.  -The image is in Digital Cinema 1:85:1 Aspect ratio (16:10), like the internal 4K aspect ratio (makes sense), so when I record it to ProRes it has tiny letterboxing. I just upscale to 2K DCI or Crop down to 16:9 HD ___________________________________________________________   -Another point, don't underestimate the power of the super35 HD mode. It's really the mode that makes the 1DC suitable for a major number of video genres other than film that can handle the MJPEG 4K To HD workflow.   With little difference to the end product (for TV/nonfilm) the s35 HD mode looks just as good as the 1.3x 4K-to-HD. So for interviews (s35 HD unlimited-time small files is a killer combo for interviewing), for broadcast, for ENG, for wildlife, for weddings, events, travel, having that S35, high resolution HD (C100 level of detail) with Canon colours and C-Log 12 stops of latitude, at 6th of the file size of shooting in 4K-to-HD, is a really important feature for me.   Just to get a sense of it it's side by side IDENTICAL to the C300 image produces and having that mode is key for me. Perhaps actually the most important feature making me weigh in for buying the 1DC over the 1DXII as my A camera for my company.  Most if not all of my video business does not require the 4K extra quality boost and having the extra small file mode is something I'd use the hell out of. Maybe more than 4K. Especially when it's my crew that's working not me (whom I'll not trust with MJPEG 500mbps handling after they've been used to 24mbps H.265 HD)  ****With the 1DX II, it's either go 500mbps CFAST 2.0 4K 4:2:2 DCI or horrendous 5DII/III-like binned HD The only way I can see out of this is using my ninja blade to record that great HD 1.3x HDMI signal to a ProRes 4:2:0 8bit flavour to get similar functionality, but still, the 1DC has this duty internally to the CF cheap cards without needing a separate monitor on top of the camera that has power to take care of and different media type and an HDMI cable to watch out for and a heavy awkward VERY TALL and slim camera (1DC+ninja on hotshoe).    _________________________________________ Canon sure are a master of product segmentation, and giving users a very hard time making compromises between their own line up.  60p + DPAF + 120p Vs C-Log + S35 + 29:59+. It's not an easy one to decide at all.  _________________________________________ They should just put the 1DXII/1DC sensor inside a C100 MKII body. Same 1D image/codec/sensor/media + C100II ergonomics/features.  Camera hunting over.

      Moiré artifacts? It would be a nonsense on these days cameras. I'm waiting for a full review about the image quality of this camera and will make a decision then.

      Thanks for the info Ebrahim.  The stuff I've seen shot on 5D raw is pretty special. Love the motion cadence and deep colours.
