    No. The SL2 can shoot 1080/24p. 😉

    TheRealOG reacted to Andrew Reid in How many sales are Canon losing from enthusiasts due to video shenanigans?   
    That is preposterous it really is. The 1D X Mark II cannot compete with the X-H1 on pricing, size, weight, codec, file sizes, 120fps quality, handheld shooting, stabilisation, ergonomics, EVF or LOG. And that is just the features off the top of my head.
    The video market knows exactly what it wants and the 1D X Mark II isn't it.
    Otherwise they'd be a big thread about it here but there isn't.
    And when I reviewed it, it didn't exactly set a discussion going with hundreds of people saying "this is for me". I liked it in 2016 for stills and for giving the 1D C Dual Pixel AF - but losing Canon LOG and increasing the crop factor left a sour taste for my $6k.
    The 1D X Mark II is a superb pro stills camera and I used it as such... With Canon's best looking 4K outside of the 1D C... But it just isn't practical. Paying that much money to shoot MJPEG in 4K, massive file sizes, losing the EVF and IBIS, very important features... Why? Along with introducing moire in 1080p and 120fps, all I can say you must really need it as a stills camera to buy it in 2019.
    It's a dodo.
    In 2019 I would use the X-H1 every time instead.

    TheRealOG got a reaction from ghostwind in Canon gear advice for pro photographer getting into videography   
    Canon C100mkii will solve all of your problems. Picked up a used one online (ebay or so) and you'll be good to go. Great . Features out of the box and will improve your workflow dramatically. Your 1DXmkii will help you with the slowmotion and the gimbal work too. I suggest getting the Sigma 18-35, DPAF works great on it and will also be amazing with the 1dxmkii (covers the frame with video, especially with the crop. The DPAF is really awesome on it too with it.)

    lol the Canon excuses. The c200’s slow motion is pretty bad compared to what’s available from other DSLMs! If I pay 6-7k for the c200 pkg, the DPAF won’t be enabled with the 120fps. What’s so great about DPAF if you can’t use it at will? C100mkii... DPAF can’t be used throughout the whole sensor, unless you’re using an USM lens, and even then it’s the slowest of the bunch. C300 doesn’t have slow motion. The only camera with decent slow motion is the 1dxmkii, but you need to use MotionJpeg... Ugh. 
    They don’t have the best color science. The video is hella mushy.

    TheRealOG reacted to Andrew Reid in Canon EOS M6 Mark II   
    Yes of course we all know the story with the M6 Mark II is that compared to earlier efforts such as the 60D or T2i, Canon finally had to drop 24p to save on the H.264 licensing fees which were really racking up a huge debt in their corporate bank account, and the other reason they had to drop 24p was that it takes just so much processing power to drop those 6 frames compared to 30p which is much easier, and the virtual garbage bin kept filling up with those frames and overflowing causing a memory leak and a security issue for people with smartphones connected, so 24p just had to go, and also the uncompressed 16bit 8K HDMI output could only run at 60hz for the screens on Atomos recorders so no 24p externally either, plus in Japanese the number 24 is associated with ghosts.

    TheRealOG reacted to Mattias Burling in How about a good old Camera Blind Test?   
    This is a blind test comparing videos from a couple of different cameras, lenses and filters.
    I have not tried to match the images since that would take away the point of the test. Im looking at quick turnaround, color science as well as the effect different types of lenses and filters have on the final image.
    As you can see the light changed quite a bit between shots but it doesn't matter.

    TheRealOG reacted to Django in Deciding between X-H1 and X-T3   
    It's a bit of a tough choice as the IBIS on XH1 is really practical for handheld 4K when shooting primes but XT3 just has so much more specs. 
    I'd still probably go with XT3 as it doesn't crop in 4K, has much better RS.. and of course 10-bit, 4K60p etc..

    This camera does exist and is already in the hands of some reputable camera stores in LA. I talked with one owner and they didn't reveal much except that it was a game changer and one of the best cameras that they had ever seen. I asked them "game changer? They said "yeah". They have it in their shop and are playing with it. Not to something to be taken lightly, especially with using the word game changer... Coming from Panny!!

    You're not an old fossil. People have become accustomed to mediocrity. Composition, framing, and sequencing rarely exist. They've been supplemented by the "floaty" gimbal look. People are always chasing the next LUT, raw recording, but rarely "how do I improve" my work with intention. All of these tools are supposed to be chosen for a reason. Three medium-shots back to back in 120fps is not visually appealing. Great work still requires heavy rigs and heavy rigs mean: union sets, decent money, people being professionals, insurance, purpose, and making a living.

    Yeah you are right. I was a bit too harsh on my comment. Times have changed and tech has truly advanced. A person needs to try anything to get the shot, and there are now more and more ways to do it. I guess I am a old fossil lol.

    I don't think Dan gets it. Dan's current thoughts are incoherent. You need to make sense, create a plan, find your topic, and attack it. If you're gonna be so generic about your topic, no one cares. Why should anyone care about your generic ideas? The topic of activism is too general and no one needs to watch that. If you do your research and find something interesting, then you might have a shot. Find something that is occurring in your area. Are there a particular group or individuals in your community that are activists? Are there homeless veterans on the street who aren't getting enough services from the VA in your neighborhood? Is there a group of local veterans who are trying to help them out by feeding them or shelter them. Now you have a topic and a particular group to interview for a specific reason. You're shining a light into a problem that remains in the dark. You will need a thick skin because docs or journalism is a tough job. You're dealing with real folks (we're being really nice to you in comparison)
