Exclusive - Canon confirm 1D C 4K DSLR is same hardware as the 1D X In: Cameras Posted September 21, 2012 [quote name='richg101' timestamp='1348230253' post='18804'] I'm guessing the 1dc stores straight to card? in 4k? if this is the case, this will gain more market appeal than the red scarlet. even though so many people have this hankering for raw, most dont have the money to then spend multiple $$$$ on the additional hd's (more than Â£80 worth of ssd storage per 3 minute is it not? and more importantly, most are not undertaking work that even warrants raw.[/quote] Probably more people are undertaking work that requires raw -- or at least better gradability than is possible with 8-bit H.264 -- than work that requires 4K. [quote]having 4k straight to card and the dynamic range of the full frame sensor would be amazing, even it if is compressed in camera [/quote] Again, the codec is the weak link. A greater dynamic range would tend to make banding even more apparent.
