It’s 2018 and a good video feature arrives on a Canon! I immediately assume it’s an accident, so taunt is the leash Canon has on video specs. Indeed, what makes the M50 appealing to me is the happy accident of what crop factor you get when you cut an 8 megapixel window out of a 24 megapixel sensor. All the best things are happy accidents when it comes to Canon, who gave us DSLR video by accident, then later RAW video on a 5D Mark III with Magic Lantern by accident, then with the M50’s ridiculous crop – a Super 16mm camera!
Apple have pulled one out of the bag here. A neural network powered image processor and dual-4K image sensors, on something that isn’t a proper camera.
Did you hear of the man who tried to clean every last spec of dust from his Hasselblad?
He’s dead now.
I’ve been testing a pre-production version of this on my camera thanks to Panasonic, to bring you my first impressions of the new features which include:
- Professional 400Mbit ALL-I intraframe codec for 10bit 4K 4:2:2
- “Open Gate” High Resolution Anamorphic Mode (4992 x 3744)
- Hybrid Log Gamma with view assist feature for HDR shooting
- New and improved autofocus engine for video
- Performance optimisations and bug fixes

I’ve been shooting timelapses and infrared stills with the Sigma SD Quattro mirrorless camera.
Foveon is a future bayer slayer. Sigma could end up ruling the sensor market for high end cameras in 10 years.
I recently decided to find out which of the current 1080/120fps capable cameras does it the best.
