No, it's not.     Hack the Planet.       Your examples don't really impress me as much as maybe you were hoping.  One, I'm a licensed Houdini user and one of their, or used to be, top users wor

MaXINE! Please make a thread talking about how and what you did here TO MAKE A MIRRORLESS 5d and what sucesses and issues you had! This hacked up 5D is far more indie interesting than the "let's take

The main point is Alex will not try the 1DX and will ban anyone on ML if they attempt.

Don't worry, we won't do it.

I'd go as far as excluding from ML community any developer who would try to do something like this.

What Canon are doing here makes no business sense to me. They make a healthy margin on the 1D X as it is at over $6k, imagine the sales leap had they enabled 4K video on it.

 

So they are going to sell how many 1D C's? 2000 of them? Mostly in one country. Does that seem like a good reason to piss off the 40,000 who would have bought a 1D X for 4K video? Does that seem like a good business decision, really?

 

 

How about you apply to canon for some sort of business position with your indepth analysis.

... I never  signed or hereby acknowledged to any of the above at the time of purchasing any of Canon or other cameras.

Depending on principality it may not matter.

Here in US we do have "Digital Millenium Act".

You haven't signed it. I haven't signed it.

 

But Congress - did.

Essentially when you can produce a camera that does 4K and make a nice profit on it at $6k, it just shows how weak the competition is when Canon can still be a market leader and DISABLE the entire feature, instead selling it for double the price to a select few. 4K isn't mainstream yet, but when it is Canon won't be able to sell a 4K DSLR for $6000 let alone $12,000.

 

When competition catches up, they'll lower the price and make adjustement. It doesn't make logical sense to do it earlier. It's like me saying competition is weak in video market cause you guys charge sooo muuch for your work. In the future, when we have raw in iphones and 1000x more processing power + many more educated ppl in video industry you won't be able to sell your work at current prices. LMAO.

For the same reason, we'll probably see the new 5D3 firmware(or 5DC) about the time BMC starts producing in volume.
