Thanks Johnnie for another enlightening test.

The image is sharp (sharpened in post) but soft out of the camera. Confusingly though we now have a different problem. Some intentional market segmentation causing this to be a worse camera for filmmakers than it needs to be. Moire everywhere! Terrible aliasing! No headphone jack!

Therefore I cannot recommend it for video and I urge Canon to put a halt to this kind of bullshit immediately. Just make each product as good as it can feasibly be for the money. I mean seriously how much does a headphone jack cost!?

I am going out tonight so no time to do a proper blog post on this but will look at it again later in the week.

It was between this or the GH3 for me and this video is making the decision pretty easy

I do not think the lack of a headphone jack is really such a huge deal since in camera audio on most cameras is pretty pitiful anyway. But the moire looks terrible!

Dear friends.

Please take in account that this is a pre production camera and the images coming out of it are described by Canon as "Beta quality".


Thanks!

Johnnie

If this camera is using the 5dmkII sensor, well then I can't believe the moire. Worse than even the t4i. I am seriously ditching Canon. I love my 5dmkIII, but it'll be for photos only from here on out. Thank you Panasonic, can't wait for my GH3!

See, I wouldnt care if the 5DMK3 was more for film makers and this was for photos, but the 5DMK3 isnt a good improvement for video from the MK2 in my opinion.
