the t3i lower end canon has a video crop mode. the crop mode worked great for macro video becuase it did not change the dof. Now i know this is just a firmware upgrade. canon why not do it. its a freebee .add it to the marketing.
T3i 3x-10x 1080hd
60d 7x 640X480 only boo
60da now come on brand new model $600 for a new lowpass filter no new firmware thumbs down
Gimmie Chuck Westfalls number so he can explain why canon left out this feature.
Maybey the same reason canon is the only lens company that does not include lens hoods with their standard lens.
Anyone have an aswer for this?
Yeah it's very annoying. I bet the 5D3 could even do 1920x1080 at 1.6x crop too if they read 2x2 blocks, no aliasing or line skipping and probably sharper than the FF. And why no deeper crop?
With 5D3+1.2.1 you can record the 5x zoom mode over HDMI on something like a Ninja2, I guess it is sort of DVD resolution though, but if you get a Ninja 2 and go through that bother you can get some sort of a crop mode from it. Why nothing like T3i and why not internally for the 5x??
All they do is cripple stuff on purpose or don't bother to take advantage of their own hardware fully.
