The technical specs of the HDMI-signal have nothing to do with the crop factor of the sensor. You of course know that too. Sorry no. I am not reviewing the tech specs of the HDMI signal in isolation to the rest of the camera. I am as disappointed with the HDMI output as I am with the rest of the camera, because of what comes out of it. The Z7 I am not disappointed about in the least bit, either the HDMI or the internal codec, again because of the END RESULT. I don't care about the HDMI spec in isolation, I care what kind of image I am getting from it. Fact is it is 1.8x crop via HDMI. It is not full frame like the Nikon. Why would I review the HDMI port?! Based on how many pins it has or what bit depth it supports, when there is that massive elephant in the room of the image being 1.8x crop from it? Quote Now I won't argue about the fact that the HDMI-signal might be useless for some users when another crucial feature is missing on that camera. I can agree with that. But my point was about the editorial differences in covering that one specific feature. Like I say above, it's not about "That one specific feature". I can say GREAT it's 10bit. What use is that without mentioning it's a 1.8x crop image? That is not how journalism works. You have to give the full picture (pun intended). Quote Not trying to make excuses for Canons decisions. Take it as a cheap joke in a tense environment. It is an underwhelming release, that's for sure. Take my other comment this way Mr. Reid: I do enjoy reading your articles and I do learn a lot doing so. Your knowledge about camera tech is way bigger than mine and your perspective often refreshingly more critical than that of other camera related sites. But please just keep a healthy professional distance to the topics of your reporting (as every journalist should) no matter if the news are good or bad. For me your articles about the EOS R lacked that distance. They were unnecessarily emotional and furious. And that's something I do not associate to professional journalism. You're better than the people in the dpreview comments-section! It's not a dry tech fact-finding mission style blog. EOSHD is partly a personal blog and always has been about my own opinion and use of the cameras. The moment Canon stop being disappointing, I will praise them for it. Although they have generated a massive lack of goodwill with me, there's no bias without justification. EthanAlexander 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
