    • 1.74x - A Crop Odyssey - Canon 5D Mark IV officially announced
      I'm not surprised. Aside from the unreliableĀ promo videos, with questionable grades,Ā I expect the actual quality of the video to be similar to the 1DX II, aside from the difference in crop and frame rates.Ā Then again, the 1DX II isĀ almost double the price of the 5D IV, so it's reasonable to expect some differences. The 5D IV is atĀ a similar price point toĀ the Sony a7r II, which has its ownĀ drawbacks. Color science versus crop factor? Either will be a deal breaker for some, or minor obstaclesĀ for many others.Ā  Still, the 5D IV has theĀ best implementation of video autofocusĀ on the market, quality 4K (despite the crop), good colors out of the box, ruggedĀ body and proven reliability, and of course the widest range of availableĀ lenses.Ā  Right now, there areĀ only two small cameras with usable video autofocus that doesn't have some MAJOR operational limitation (a6300):Ā The Sony a7r II and the 5d IV. Glad to see more tools out there.Ā 
    • The 4K Fuji X-T2 is here
      officially 10 min is the maximum you will be able to do in one piece without battery grip. In practice you will probably be able to shoot a couple of 10 min clips, as long as you are not in the Sahara and direct sunlight. (from what I have seen/heard with the battery grip you can run as long as the SD cards/batteries allow. Clips will be limited to 30 min)Ā 
    • For those in love with the FULL FRAME look which system gets closest in 4K?
      Crop Factor is based in the Image Circle, that's why the diagonal is used instead of the width. The diagonal is based on the video mode not stills mode (entire sensor), so it's a little more work to compute the Crop Factor. Your math is indeed simpler, unfortunately it will lead to confusion since it's not actually the Crop Factor. You could call it Width Ratio or similar to let people know it's not the image circle diameterĀ ratio and not the actual Crop Factor.
    • DJI SSD's drop in price
      I just noticed this.Ā  Up until I last checked, the DJI proprietary SSD's were $1500 each. On their website, they are now $1000 each, and you can buy a bundle of 3 for $2500, making them just over $800. So now, 3 of their SSD's cost less than 2 of them did before. So, they are not cheap now, but not 'kick me in the balls' expensive either.Ā  http://store.dji.com/category/inspire-series
