Canon 5D Mark IV "will be 1080p" with Canon LOG

Recommended Posts

I received an email from a NAB show visitor today who had spoken off the record to Canon and was told the company believes a 4K 5D Mark IV would completely overshadow the recently released C100 Mark II and so wouldn't happen, but that Canon LOG would likely go into the camera to allow shot-matching with the XC10.

So to segment specs based on price, Canon is allegedly sticking to 1080p on future DSLRs. The exception is the 4K XC10 which isn't a competitor to the C100 Mark II or C300 Mark II as it features a tiny 1" sensor and fixed camcorder-style zoom lens by comparison.

"there’s a perception at Canon and Nikon that perhaps Sony, Panasonic and Samsung have 4K TVs to sell, and so have only introduced 4K in their cameras as a marketing ploy and that really consumers don’t really care about advanced large sensor 4K video on DSLRs"

thats key, of course they want that, because they want to sell those 4k new tvs...

on the other hand i cant believe they will stick to 1080 p only, they might give something better like 2.5K..

Seems a bit of an odd statement to me, considering they already have the 1DC. I got offered one for £2500 the other day, so if all else fails, it is still a great route if you want 4K in a DSLR.

hmm no offense but an email from 'a nab visitor' who spoke to 'canon'  and 'believes' the 5d4 will be 1080 is pretty vague as a source! (unless you have more info you didnt mention)

​Of course it's a vague source, do you really think they want their personal info online?

If anything, this is a huge opening for Nikon to stake a claim to the 4k/DSLR. I know, there's the 1DC, but that's a pretty small niche camera.  Not sure they will, but it would definitely be a point of differentiation between the two heavyweight pro still shooting camera companies.

​I just mean look at how much effort someone went to to make that c500 thing, one email doesnt take much in comparison (people are weird!)

I have no interest in mastering to 4k yet but you can't even try to pry my 4k cameras out of my hands. It just opens the doors for me as a run & gun videographer (weddings mostly) to be able to crop and recompose in post. I do this all day long with photographs...it's about freaking time I can do it for video. Plus my frame grabs when I need them are much more usable. Every now and then I even stabilize in post which usually amounts to a crop. I still have my 5D3 for photography use but almost never use it for video anymore. Canon is dead wrong if they think 4k isn't a must have. Though granted, I still have yet to master out to 4k for projects...though I do enjoy watching my home videos on my 4k tv which I do maintain at 4k. Maybe my kids will thank me someday for their high quality home videos.

I think the "DSLR revolution" is over.

With great proper/affordable video choices, I think it's time to think this product is great for video, and this product is great for photos (which I'm sure the Mark IV will be), not an hybrid product that doesn't excel at both.

really now thats like 3500 euros. ok was that camera in the bottom of the sea for 3 days? or maybe lost in a dune in egypt?

If Jimmy does not buy that 1D C at £2500 I think he should do his friend a favour and put him in touch with a few people on this forum...

Only fair :)
