interesting video, but that has to be the worst announcer I've heard in a long time. I don't exactly know what is wrong with his voice, but it really grates. It's almost as if he is trying just a little too hard to get that movie trailer voice without ever quite making it.


With the 250 million point cmos sensor, I'm wondering where you get to the point that you just shoot and apply some sort of software filters to artfully frame and defocus the areas around your object, rendering most lenses obsolete? In the video it shows everything in hyper focus in video, with a zoom into an airplane at a vast distance. I'm wondering about the need for most sports photographers at that point, or even cameramen. The post production becomes the point where almost all the artistic skill gets placed....

The sports photographers would be "post-processing" on the fly, via choice of viewpoint camera and electronic zoom. In other words, video skills stuff they do now, what with all the ceiling mounted cameras.

At 250MP, that would be a hell of a LARGE PRINT...

Canon should have hired the honest trailers guy.  The guy's voice is ass.

that sounds like the lytro. for something like that to work it would need a bunch of lenses  or layers of pixels that focus  one increment of distance  at a time like  dual pixel shift thing  but the files would be massive. or they can use a  crappy filter like  phones.

I think it's funny that they still use the 1D as their 3D model especially when referring to their CMOS sensors.

Should work well on spy satellites, or google earth cameras. 😎
