Is the 5DC 12 bit color or 14 bit?
« on: December 13, 2013, 12:54:35 AM »
I can't seem to find an answer. I am looking for an inexpensive FF and the 5D seems to be exactly what I am looking for. Does anyone know if the 5DC has a 12 bit color processor or 14 bit? thanks!

Oh, and to anyone who wants to suggest that the 5D2 or 5D3 is a better choice, feel free to either donate one or send me the funds. I have a budget and I don't use FF cameras very much. But there are times I would like one and the images from the 5DC are fantastic and the 12.8MP is more than enough resolution. I am not a "more MP is better" kind of shooter. I believe the 5DC will be a perfect FF camera for what I need.

Canon 5D2, 7Dv2.03, 50D, 40D, T1i, XTi...XT (& lenses, flahses), various powershots... You get the idea... I have a problem. :)

Wife shoots Nikon, D7000, D7100, (lenses and flashes)... we constantly tease each other that our cameras are better than each others!

5D is 12 bit RAW file.

Dang, was hoping for 14 bit. Oh well. :) Thanks!

Good decision. As long as you have no need for video, I'd never buy a rebel again.
