Like Jordan Drake says, hope they stock up on those 10-18mm lenses.

Imagine one of those vloggers actually wanting to take a still with a 10-18 STM lens on there.  Oops.

Don't worry about the body, they can add full sensor read out and IBIS in next generation.

But they're asking for my hard earned $2300 in this generation.

@no_connection Most hollywood productions are locked tripod shots with a S35 crop. I think 10-bit 4:2:2 Log will be very useful in a handful of "static" situations.

Then why not buy a fuji X-T3 with 4K 60P , 10bit F-log output,and with film  simulations?

With lenses priced like that you can go medium format.

The lens are too pricy

It will probably have great AF in video mode to boot. And much more affordable fast primes.

Is that 100% confirmation of no Canon LOG internally?

Why? Canon Log is available internally as 8bit 420 in all resolutions and frame rate. Externally it's also available in 8bit 422 and 10bit 422 with the additional option of BT.2020 colour space.

Just now, Andrew Reid said:

Why does it say card recording not supported then?

10bit Canon Log option is only available externally.

Wrong it's simple physics.  Go find a dark room on a sunny day.  Punch a small hole in the wall, then a large one.  Which one illuminates the room more?  It's not rocket science.  Light intensity is the same but the gathering is *not*.  All things being equal with sensors (exact same technology) a FF will gather ~2.2 stops more light than an APS-C one.  I don't have cameras that allow me to toggle between FF and APS-C, but the image quality / read noise will be worse and/or the ISO will go up to compensate.  Sorry you don't believe this, but it's really not tough.  A large mirror will reflect more light than a small one.  Think about this for a minute - the EOS R is *only* using the very center of the sensor to gather light.

You are confused - it's light intensity at the photosite that's important not ' light gathering'. The same intensity is falling on each photosite. A large hole in the wall vs a small hole is variable aperture so that is the wrong way of looking at it. I can toggle between full frame and APS-C on my A7r2 and the  exposure doesn't change. I can zoom to the equivalent crop on each while maintaining the same aperture and the exposure doesn't change.

And cine Zooms too! Fuji's own 18-55 and 50-135 T2.9!

I am still utterly amazed that people don't understand this. 

Take a photo: snip out a "crop" of the pic. Is the exposure the same as with the "full" picture? OF COURSE IT IS!

Not confused at all.  We're talking about total light gathering and equivalent noise and ISO.  The A7r2 is a bad example as the S35 mode is cleaner since the "binning" of the FF means at ISO 3200 and above it's loses detail and gets noisy quickly.  But you'll notice the A7sII is the opposite - no crop and using the entire sensor for the 4k.

The Canon 50 1.2 while shooting 4k video is really a 85 F/2 equivalent.

No one is saying the EXPOSURE is different.  The same intensity of light is hitting the sensor.  I am saying all things being equal, a larger sensor gathers more total light and has less read noise than a smaller one.  Have you forgotten that the micro 4/3rds cameras struggle past ISO 1600?  This isn't about crop or camera exposure, but equivalent DOF.  You can't multiply the focal length without multiplying the effective aperture.  This is why the Nokton F/0.95 25mm is roughly a 50mm F/2 in FF terms.  Same rule is reversed when you go the other way.  Instead of having the full 24x36 sensor "gather" light for your video, the Canon in this case, it's the (almost) S16 dead center of the sensor "gathering" light.

$3000 for a 28-70mm F2

In 4K with the crop factor it is a $3000 49-122mm F3.5.

Not so impressive, huh.

Andrew gets it - the 28-70 F2 when shooting UHD on the EOS R is roughly a 48-117mm F3.5.

If I took a FF Canon 50 1.4 and shot a still on a FF body, then put that lens on the 80d - it now becomes 50/1.4 x 1.6, or 80mm 2.24.  This is *exactly* the same thing this EOS-R is doing in UHD mode - but even worse!!!  SMH...

Yeah, exposure is the same.

However, snip out a "crop" of the pic, and then blow that crop up to the size that the original was. Noise will be more apparent on the crop than on the original.

If you wanted the noise level to be equal on the crop as the original, you lower the ISO, and open the aperture to compensate.

Indeed you are very confused Shield3. Better to try it out before stating as fact.. my 1Dc has s35 crop - absolutely no difference in exposure than FF mode.

They screwed up again, it was obvious from the leaked specs and I'm not sure why some people got excited about this camera knowing the horrible track record of Canon.

I think, it's time to change the name of this website.
