    • Requesting a 4K 5D Mark IV! Werner meets Canon in Germany
      I was under the impression that it was going to be a 21Mpixel (or so) sensor that was basically 5 or 6k being reduced to 4k. Not another 16Mpixel sensor.
    • Requesting a 4K 5D Mark IV! Werner meets Canon in Germany
      Because Nikon is far less diversified than Canon, Sony and Panasonic. As camera sales continue to slide, they're struggling. 2/3rds of Nikons revenue comes from cameras, just two years ago it was over 3/4ths, all that's really changed is lower imaging revenues. Nobody knows where the bottom is, but Nikon doesn't have the cash reserves to ride it out. I'm sure we'll see lots of cost cutting soon - job losses and facilities closing. Doesnt matter how good the product is if they can't pay the bills.

      Really interesting lowlight video. I think we do need a bit more information about the video side, rather than the stills. We'll get it in the next few months. But the combination of features, the lowlight, weather-sealing, reliability, the 4K, and dual pixel autofocus make this offering pretty attractive, even if other cameras are superior is some categories.  As far as feature set/pricing, I think the Sony a6300 at $1K, the Sony A7RII at $3K, The Canon 1DX II at $6K, and the Canon C300 II at $15K are probably the most flexible, all-around video cameras at those price points. The mirrorless/DSLR cameras will require more investment to equip them for a real video shoot, e.g., monitoring, audio, rigging, etc.  The 1DC is great, but I think its more limited...at this point, I think the lack of slow-motion might limit some creative/commercial use, and the lack of continuous autofocus costs you flexibility (documentary work, tight shots, fast turnaround). In other words, the 1DC is a small camera with a high quality 4K video.  But the BM ursa mini 4.6K will likely give you a superior image at a similar price point (or perhaps even cheaper, after the monitor, audio, and rigging the 1DC will probably require). So if you want to shoot a movie the old fashioned way, and maximize image quality by investing in a higher production, then that 4.6K ursa will probably do really well on controlled tests.  Even after exhaustive tests, if the 1DC at ~$4K betters the 1DX at ~$6K in terms of absolute image quality overall, I'd still probably prefer the latter for the better features, because flexibility and usability is generally worth more than absolute image, within reason, in my experience.  I'd rather just get the shot.

      This video looks pretty great to me. Better than any other canon except maybe the 1dc at 4k, :
