  1. 4:3 mode and iso50 is a must, the rest i can live with. 4:3 would increase the file size so i am not sure they have leftovers of processing power, maybe some firmware smarts can fix this... really, nobody knows:)
  2. Mk3 is a nice upgrade for photos while video is a bust, i agree with you on that.
  3. [quote author=BurnetRhoades link=topic=738.msg5441#msg5441 date=1337262698] It's an inherent part of the craft with these tools.  Given the fact that it's an option, as a shooter, not being at least somewhat versed in the options available would be like a traditional cinematographer not caring to know they have a variety of choices in film stock, each with its own qualities, quirks, strengths and limitations.  They wouldn't really be competent in their role if they just grabbed a box of film off the shelf, shot and were either disappointed or pleasantly surprised by the results.  Any overly successful imagery would be through no fault or praise of their own and they would likely be unable to duplicate such efforts if they ever needed to. Photography/cinematography, like filmmaking in general, like most complicated artistic craft, is also a technical discipline.  It's not either/or if you wish to claim true ownership of your craft.  And if you don't then there's no reason to be discussing it outside a pedestrian list of likes and dislikes, exposition being mostly a selfish exercise when its devoted to gut opinion. [/quote] In general, i agree with what you said. As most of us us are all-in-one filmmakers (or people, who have video capture devices is a better description for bigger part) there is a need to cover both creative and tech part. Usually, while creating things you come across technical limitations and then try to figure them out. What i see now is need to shoot things to prove you can do it and that is not filmmaking, it's a tech competition of some sort. I don't call myself filmmaker, but i hope to be able to one day - when i get that new cool camera:)
  4. GH2 rocks, no doubt about it. But sometimes, just sometimes people chase codecs and pixels too mush don't you think?
  5. yet again - anybody has any info on 1Dx video? samples did look very good, can there be some actual difference from mk3? good comparison, wide angle detail is so much better on GH2.
  6. non cropped 35mm 2k is 2048 X 1536 so there is not a huge improvement in pixel count, still - in video terms every extra pixel is more than welcome:)
  7. red are bastards, period. that Ikonoskop A-cam screenshot looks great!
  8. Damn guys, all this waiting and now i have only more questions than answers. Initial idea was to get Nikon d800 with one of the cheep external recorders, but i hate moire so that one is not going to happen. MkIII video improvements for 4 year wait are simply not good enough... Can there possibly be more 1080p like image on 1Dx or it will be exactly the same? fs100 is a great one, but i need good stills too...
  9. [quote author=tungah link=topic=369.msg2284#msg2284 date=1331097848] [quote author=magnifypictures link=topic=369.msg2283#msg2283 date=1331096332] so maybe im wrong or maybe its a typo but my calculations show that a 90 Mb/s video for 2.5 min should be (90/8)*2.5*60=1687.5MB. So this video is not at 90 Mb/s but rather closer to 30? I dont have vimeo plus so i cant check for certain. Either way I feel let down by this camera so far. Cant wait for the official reviews once the camera comes out. Maybe if we complain enough Canon will actually listen and fix our very realistic wish list. [/quote] One guy said this in the comments: "This is IPB footage (ave bitrate according to PPro is 27.2Mbps). PPro CS5.5 is having trouble playing this file in real-time (5D2 & other H.264 files play fine. Windows Media Player works fine too): starts OK in PPro then slows to a crawl (sequence created from clip properties). GPU or CPU- no difference (GTX285, 12 2.93Core 24GB MacPro (Win7x64)). Hopefully the I-frame footage will work better with PPro (or Adobe will quickly provide a patch). Thanks again for the sample file Tonis. Looking forward to seeing footage with sharpness at 7 (and contrast turned up)." [/quote] Rumor has it that bitrate will be variable, but who really knows? iI say let's wait for the real thing and then start evaluating resolution etc.
  10. If so than not with internal recorder. This video is simply the same or worse than most stuff on market now, also soft and the aliasing was just an eye-stab since this was a tech demo. D4 show-reel about the hobbies was pretty good tho... i guess that was recorded externally then.
