  1. guys the D4 is on par with the 5d. it screams "soft video" at first look and apparently from other videos it has the worst aliasing I've seen
  2. [quote author=Simco123 link=topic=218.msg1523#msg1523 date=1327592947] [quote author=Andrew Reid - EOSHD link=topic=218.msg1521#msg1521 date=1327591449] [quote author=Simco123 link=topic=218.msg1515#msg1515 date=1327564292] I think it is a mixture of patent agreement and Japanese protectionism. Downscaling is effectively crippling therefore the quality is going to be poor. Appears Nikon D4 was allowed clean HDMI because the video is going to be crippled or downscaled and will not compete against the true high end video cameras. [/quote] Why would Nikon cripple it? They don't HAVE any high end video cameras!! [/quote] What I've said. Combination of patent agreement and Japanese protectionism. Sort of like we help you make your sensor for your camera, doesnt have to be this camera but for that camera so long as you cripple the video on your flagship camera we don't mind you having clean HDMI out. Japanese don't like losing face and Canon is not about to either. [/quote] what about the GH2 then?
  3. The only consolation is that the c300 is not that cheap like the fs100 so it would not be"fair" to Canon users to have to spend so much to get a real 1080p in 2012
  4. I'm afraid that's the most logical move for a company in this situation :(
  5. [quote author=Simco123 link=topic=184.msg1355#msg1355 date=1326826413] Could well be Canon protecting the sales of the APS-C dSLRs by down grading video quality in the G1X. If you want great video you really need the flexibility to use different lenses. The G1X cant do that so no need to have good video. [/quote] Or they will protect the C300 sales by giving crap video to anything below that price range (DSRLs included) like Sony did. If the c300 didn't exist I would have no doubt they will provide gh2-like new cameras. I wonder if the GH2 lowered the sales of the af100
  6. I wanted to add that throughout the years since the canon 550d this is the worst aliased video I've ever seen. Canon went BACKWARDS with this camera. very disappointed
  7. I was expecting this and honestly I don't see why this shouldn't indicate how the new DSLRs will be, this is not a stupid  "compact" camera with a small sensor, it's not even cheap! I don't see why they would put a worse video processing on this camera, I HOPE I'M WRONG Once we get a real video sample from the new DSLRs if I don't see anything AT LEAST ON PAR with the GH2 I'm done with Canon
  8. That's another proof that they just don't want to offer those specs!

Could have been done on 5DMkII anyway. [/quote] from how they comment the video (the creators) it seems like they used the D4
  10. [quote author=wanderer63 link=topic=157.msg1195#msg1195 date=1326245862] Hi Andrew The footage shot by Corey Rich and team "Why" looks awesome don't you think? [url=http://vimeo.com/34666308]WHY - Nikon D4 Release Video[/url] Cheers Paul [/quote] It doesn't look awesome (relatively of course)  :)
  11. The definitive proof will come from what the new canons will bring in terms on video quality if even canon will offer just a slightly better resolution that the previous line it's clear that the only way to go video is with Panasonic and I've always felt like canon will not bring anything new (except fro the 4k camera of course)
  12. I really wonder how the resolution will be. if Its gh2 like then it's a waste it has a fixed lens
  13. [quote author=moebius22 link=topic=127.msg1134#msg1134 date=1325911738] People are sure in a hurry to dump on this camera. [/quote] I just understand what I'm seeing :)
  14. video resolution "sucks". its the same quality canon has been offering since movies on dsrl. nothing to see here, only 20% more res maybe. big deal, do they do know what GH2 can do?
  15. I just watched the video and I was shocked by gh2 resolution :| but it's true that the image looks more digital compared to the others big three (of course) At this point it all comes down to how the new processor on the next Canons will perform, it will of course decided by Canon if they want to destroy the GH2 or cripple them to protect the c300. BTW the Sony 5n aliasing was just HORRIBLE
  16. [quote author=hmcindie link=topic=98.msg942#msg942 date=1324992927] Well the HX9V that I have is definitely not that sharp compared to my 7d. Or is it? I've been using them together on the same shoots and occasionally used the material out of the HX9 but I've always enjoyed my 7d way more. The hx9 looks oversharpened and with a limited dynamic range. Here though it looks the best after GH2. Odd. Gonna have to run some tests now. [/quote] that the dynamic range is worse there's no doubt since it's a smaller sensor, but that it resolves more resolution is real
  17. its pretty clear the first two were canon and gh2!
  18. Honestly I don't think the nikon j1/v1 have the res on par with the GH2, it's closer than the Sonys but not on par
