As regular followers will know, I used to write for a respected authority on digital cameras, DPReview. One of the first sites I read for camera reviews back in 2001 when DSLRs were first coming onto the market. As a contributor for 3 years between 2012 and 2015, I wrote pages about video for some of their camera reviews starting with the Canon 5D Mark III.
Comment on the forum I’ve been considering the Panasonic FZ2500, and have also tried out the long awaited EOS M5 that nobody was particularly waiting for.
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!
Comment on the forum Update: Rather an an SDI port, it seems the XC15 is set to feature an audio connector for a set of XLR jacks on a top grip accessory which slots into the hot-shoe similar to the C300. The larger hot-shoe has been redesigned with a screw-thread, again another hint the update is all about accommodating a handle with XLRs. With a camera so ripe for a change, could we expect anything else or is this yet another disappointment?
Comment on the forum Various sources have suggested that the C300 Mark II is having difficulties coping with the run-away success of the Sony FS7 on the rental market. Is it truly being left on the shelves? EOSHD analyses an unexpected situation…
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.
The leaked specs of the Canon 5D Mark IV are now all over the internet but the video mode warrants further investigation…
