I’ve been totalling up how much money I’ve spent on Canon gear since starting EOSHD.
Canon have made the biggest step forward with their DSLR technology in 2016 than I’ve seen since 2009’s 5D Mark II. It isn’t the 5D Mark IV that has excited me so much as the 1D X Mark II, a camera that will see out the next 6 years as the benchmark for others to follow.
Now available – EOSHD Picture Profiles brings C-LOG to all Canon DSLRs including 1D X Mark II and 5D Mark IV
Download now for just $19.99 ($29.99 usual price) The EOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles Pack is now available and works in both video and stills mode – on all Canon DSLRs. Crafted using my Canon 1D C as a development camera, the EOSHD Film Profiles pack installs “Canon LOG” to cameras previously without it, plus a range of film simulation modes to DSLRs such as the 5D Mark IV, 5D Mark III, 1D X Mark II and T2i, etc.
All hail the democratising C700!
The Canon 1D C has seen dramatic price falls from $12k to $7k and finally to $5k. Now the camera is listed as discontinued at UK pro-video retailer CVP.
Has Canon moved on from 2012’s flagship? The results of DPReview’s studio test scene might surprise you.
Early adopters have put the Sony A6300 image quality and autofocus to the test – the results are incredible (see below). Could Sony have achieved something very special with their combination of 6K sensor readout and 425 phase detect points?
Disclaimer: the full specs aren’t out yet and nothing is officially announced New 1D X Mark II specs (via Canon Rumors) have just come out which reveal it to shoot DCI 4K in MJPEG format (4096 x 2610 and likely 8bit) just like the 1D C. However the maximum frame rate for 4K is now 60p! However at first glance there appears to be a glaring omission – that of Canon LOG.
This is probably the most revealing interview I can remember with a Canon exec. Barney Britton and Rishi Sanyal at DPR have asked not just tough questions, but the right questions! Canon imply a small GH4-like 4K camera is “under consideration” and they want to satisfy demand from the news media industry.
