There are 3 performance classes of Canon camera for raw video. Which should you use and what image quality can you expect?

Behind The Move:
Kendy Ty shoots with a Canon 550D / T2i and Sigma 30mm F1.4 (old version). The results are staggering considering the ‘low-fi’ performance of the gear. If ever there was a spur to get out and shoot something, this is it…
Please consider donating to the project – in return you will get the preview version of the 5D Mark II firmware tested here on EOSHD – and a ready to run HDR Video workflow!!
So 22nd December is here and so is the HDR Video mode and variable frame rates for the Canon 600D and siblings. The new version of Magic Lantern even supports the 50D!
This is what happens when you don’t overhaul your imaging chips for 3 years, Canon. The new Sony HX9v compact out-resolves the 600D’s video mode for resolution, and has 1080/60p. It is also a lot closer to a DSLR in terms of dynamic range than I expected it would be. It fits in my pocket and has a stabilised 24-380mm lens.
It has an image processor powerful enough to handle 43 megapixel panoramas in-camera as well, but that along with the incredible ACT stabiliser is something I’ll go into more detail on in the full review later.
The HX9v’s video mode is to compacts what the 5D Mark II’s video mode was to DSLRs.
EOSHD takes a look at some of the Vimeo shorts by aspiring filmmakers and professional filmmakers alike that caught my eye this week.

Diopters are somewhat of a miracle with anamorphic lenses. My Tokina +0.4 helped cut the minimum focus distance of my Isco down to less than 4ft from 2 meters and helped sharpen it up at fast apertures like F1.4.
Next month sees the possible unveiling of the 600D.
According to reliable rumours circulating, it’s going to be a very minor update with the same sensor as the 550D but the articulated screen of the 60D and a re-designed badge(!)
A lot of bullshit surrounds the DSLR community and a lot of talk, but so what? Some people are worth listening to and some aren’t – that’s life.
