I wonder what people would prefer for a C100 III:

1) Current sensor with 4K / 4:2:0

2) C300II sensor that does 1080p /4:2:2

I think I would prefer the latter and kind of hope that is how Canon separates them... Unlikely though.

 

I would love to see: 

  • Improved Canon XC10 body (like an XC1 or something). 
  • EF mount. 
  • Super 35mm sensor.
  • 1080p 10 bit 422.
  • 120FPS HD. 

SOLD!!

Sounds great!

I really want a piece of that C300II sensor, would happily trade resolution in for a small body and lower price and it is product separation that actually sits ok with me... Keep the image quality consistent, and separate the models by resolution, framerate etc (a bit like RED do).

That sounds to me like it could be the C100 III. Just give it the option betwen 1080p in 10bit 422 AND 4k 8bit 420 like the Sony FS5 has. But then chances are Canon would price it in FS7 territory.

Some people still held up on their Canon issues, I see....

In the last couple of years:

Launched the first (and arguably still the best) 4K DSLR, the 1D-C.

Created a near perfect AF system.

Created a 14-15 stop 4K sensor for their C range.

Launched the first 4K 60p DSLR.

Created an ultra, ultra low light camera.

Openly discussing 8K.

 

We might not like the price of Canon's stuff... But it is hard to say that they are particularly boring.

DSLR are boring.. hence Canon is boring :-) hahahhhahaha  I could be wrong, but they seem to be following mirrorless.  For example, didn't mirrorless come out first with 4k 60p video?

But thats the 5D mark iii?

(edit: sorry, missed the 4K part)

5DIII does not have RAW footage as part of it's native toolkit, that was added by amateurs hacking the camera. So it does not count since it is not something that Canon "gave" to us.

And that has what to do with the two posts you are adding to?

We've gotten great results with the GH4, A7S, A7SII, FS700. For stills, the 5D3 rocks, and for video the C300 II rules. Looking forward to the 1DX II and 5D4 and whatever Sony and Panasonic counter with. Competition is great!
