Dinosaur or T-rex?
In 2009 Canon introduced a disruptive technology. His name was the 5D Mark II and it was the devil incarnate. At the time they had a pro line-up of video camcorders like the XL2 which were used by filmmakers all over the world. Canon’s 60+ year old management probably thought they’d just killed an entire business, by accident, with a consumer DSLR.
The EOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles Pack is now available and works in both video and stills mode – on all Canon DSLRs.
Crafted using my Canon 1D C as a development camera, the EOSHD Film Profiles pack installs “Canon LOG” to cameras previously without it, plus a range of film simulation modes to DSLRs such as the 5D Mark IV, 5D Mark III, 1D X Mark II and T2i, etc.
UPDATE: Unfortunately the D500 uses a heavy crop of the sensor to readout 4K video. More about this below.
As well as the Nikon D5, we have a surprise.
Although the Nikon D5 can only record 4K for up to 3 minutes at a time, the D500 can go for a full 30 minutes in one continuous take.
The D500 also comes in much cheaper than the larger FX pro body.
