Canon – the REAL technical and political reasons behind the lack of decent video

Comment on the forum

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.

Nikon D500 with cropped 4K video (UPDATED)

Nikon D500

UPDATE: Unfortunately the D500 uses a heavy crop of the sensor to readout 4K video. More about this below.
