  1. This is disapointing. I was so excited they'd moved the lugs too which was a major gripe with the old Olympic cameras. However, I am still waiting for a gx7 type replacement for my "small" cam. Panasonics video is already amazing and I think they will have good enough image stabilisation soon. Coupled with their even quicker AF than Olympus with panasonic lenses I feel optimistic.

  2. Canon seem to be getting by on minimal innovation though...

    Stick a big megapixel count sensor in the 5D Mark III.... barely change anything.... but it looks like a big change because of the huge headline spec shouting 50MP!!

    Stick an EOS M 3 out there, but don't bother selling it in the US and base the body design on the horrible G1X Mark II. What's the point?

    Chasing sales figures I suppose.

    Let's see what happens at NAB. Probably can't afford what happens at NAB but let's see anyway :)

    ​Canons AF is still better than anything Nikon make. The D4s only just caught up, very roughly, with the 1dx, and the 5dmk3 is still better than the d750 as shown in numerous tests.

    Canon has the fastest AF lenses, for example their 35mm 1.4 is faster than Nikons, and the 135 is LOADS faster. 85 1.8 is faster than Nikons 1.8 too. 

    What innovation do you need or what exactly, from a stills perspective? Dont get me wrong, id like to see innovation, who doesn't, but its still the basics that are most important: ergonomics, af, low light, and Canon excel at it.

  3. Northlight Images says they have been told that the EOS 5D Mark IV will be announced in August. The EOS 5D Mark IV is said to come with improved video and still performance and features, and with just a modest increase in resolution.

    As we reported first, the EOS 5D Mark IV will most probably have 4k video recording. This will be a DSLR oriented to the sport, action and event photographers. I am sure the EOS 5D Mark IV will push Canon already exceptional low-light performance to new boundaries.



  4. This is good because we are most likely using a sony sensor but with canon colour science, great

    But To me, and the reason for creating this post, is that it is clear that it is not a replacement for the 5dm3. . And most of all, because this is so high mega pizel, and only to 6400, then a 24meg one or similar is DEFO around the corner, which will likely have great video specs, following on from the general heritage of the 5d line and be an ultimate all round cam. If they came out with, I dunno 30meg there it would be less clear what the plan is

  5. The Still Motion lot from Canada seem to use a lot of monopods (the manfrotto one with a little tripod-like feet at the bottom of it) and therefore don't seem to use stabilised lenses, unless they are in a vehicle or something similar. Is it possible to never bother with stabilisation?

  6. The set design will have probably have been adjusted to shorten depth and increase the amount of in focus material.

    I believe a large majority of the shots that made it into the edit were actually from the 50mm f0.7 but with a custom made front mounted afocal WA adaptor that changed the focal length to an equivalent 35mm f0.7.  the shortening of the focal length actually increases dof.  a 35mm f0.7 on 35mm film (22-24mm wide) is similar to a 50mm f1.4 on full frame (36mm wide) so therefore the 'look' isn't that crazy by todays standards.  

    ​That explains it. There is just now way it was 50mm FF equiv at 0.7
