How I would describe 1dc video quality

Recommended Posts

For 4k you only have to use the A7R2 - with a very light prime or e.g. the cine FE 28-135 (200 in S35 mode) for video. Video is excellent, stills are EXELLENT (also with the FE28-135).  With native lenses, better autofocus  (e.g. eye focus tracking) or even with 5D3 (autofocus is way better on A7R2 then A7s).  Only for long takes > 30min in 4k you may need a recorder, also to eliminate the 30 minute limit + possible overheating. 

I see myself now selling off many Canon lenses, plan to keep the 1Dx for "extreme" sports with the longer primes (400) and the 70-200, maybe keep the 24-70 as well. for all normal focal length + wide - use the Sony. Have now used the A7R2 for 3-4 weeks I clearly see the the much better sensor (dynamic range and ability to push shadows) then current Canons. 

That said, everyone finds what works best for them, different priorities etc.

Well gosh thanks a lot.  I thought I would get ridiculed off the boards for shooting family videos with a 1dc.  I'm just trying to get the best footage of my kids while they're young that I can afford


Quick link.  I know this is simple home video type stuff, but to me I like the look. 4k 1dc file, built-in audio. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3W9u9cu-URWd2N4LWZzY2NkcXc/view?usp=sharing   4k f
