Canon 1D X Mark II video specs emerge – uses 4K MJPEG codec of 1D C but is it “missing Canon LOG”?

Disclaimer: the full specs aren’t out yet and nothing is officially announced

New 1D X Mark II specs (via Canon Rumors) have just come out which reveal it to shoot DCI 4K in MJPEG format (4096 x 2610 and likely 8bit) just like the 1D C. However the maximum frame rate for 4K is now 60p!

Confirmed – Panasonic GH2 production units lack 25p in PAL regions

Panasonic need to copy Canon’s approach with regard regional standards and go global. Clearly this is a decision from high up and not an engineering lead one.

I’ve been told by a source close to Panasonic that the final (non-prototype) PAL camera does indeed lack 25p and only has 24p. That confirms what we already suspected.
