Almost up there with the C300mkII 10bit ALL-I 4K (about 400mbps in h264 I believe). I’d be quite hopeful it’s going to be decent IPB, and I’d choose IPB a lot anyway, if I had the choice, simply to keep file size down. A Ninja V can be used if Intra frame is really needed. Hell, the C200 can’t even do 10bit external 4K. It’s not a disaster for me. Rolling shutter and overhearing remain the big question marks. Yeah the R6 is certainly not a disaster, there are worse problems to have than deciding on a camera upgrade 😉 I’ll wait till there’s real word footage, I want to test it, but it looks like a good entry point to the RF line for most. As an early adopter I can testify to the benefits of RF. My problem is I’ve made the R+Ninja work so well for me that I’m struggling to think of the R6 as an upgrade (though it will be for some, each to their own use case). My summary from another thread: Comparing it to the R6, the R Classic has ALL-I, true 24p, (vs IPB 23.98p), 4K 1:1 native readout for APSC, or 1:1 4K FF with Metabones (plus the speed booster’s benefits), 28ms rolling shutter vs 31ms of 1DXIII sensor, mini HDMI (vs R6’s micro), lighter for a gimbal, 30 megapixel stills vs 20mp, £1000 cheaper (used) for newcomers and it definitely doesn’t overheat. Same colour science, same log. But it lacks 60p in 4K, the improved IBIS, and the improved autofocus of the R6. I don’t use slomo so I’m really not sure whether it’s worth the upgrade for me as the R’s DIS works well and the autofocus is already blazing. It’s the IBIS I’m interested in: 8 stops is gimbal-like, and destroys any rolling shutter artefacts. Need to see more footage.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
