Oh man can't wait, should hopefully last a decade with this camera, mean while Sony still struggling to come up with 4K60p on their whole mirrorless lineup..

But it'll be 8-bit with 30+ ms of rolling shutter

Who cares, it can tick off the 8k30 and 4k120 box. Not that anyone will have 10-bit 8k any time soon...

Personally, I’d rather have internal 10-bit, uncropped 4K, AF in 120fps, and maybe a RAW video codec for the heck of it.  But I guess 8K is more headline grabbing for them to say “hey, we’re back in the video game”.  

I also hope they keep the feature from EOS R where the shutter closes to protect the sensor with the camera is off.  Such a nice touch.

Yeah indeed. Maybe 8k video is only available in full auto mode, you never know with Canon 🤣

Option A: Canon has a secret sauce and manages to release 8k on FF mirrorless camera. Not only Canon is going to abandon years of crippling policy but they are going make a massive technological come back by beating the competition.

Option B: they gonna fuck it up one way or the other with weird limitations, exorbitant pricing, marketing specs for the stickers on the box but without value for users (8K is actually time-lapse mode or upscaled 4K).

Normally, I would be inclined to pick Option B but since their sub-par product line and pressure from the competition starts having an effect on their sales, we may not completely rule out Option A. Finger crossed.
