I was surprised at out how much backlash there was after the C100 Mk II announcement because for years people have been complaining about the C100 having no 60p, a poor viewfinder, no internal mic on the body, etc. and they gave us all those things. I think it's true that people will continue to want more than what is currently offered partly because that's how we've been conditioned. If we got 4K 10 bit output there would be people demanding internal 4K. If we got internal 4K then people would demand 120fps. If the C100 had all those things then what could Canon add to the C300 to get people to buy it instead of the C100?
Like jrista said, people complain on all the forums. A friend of mine rarely complains about anything, but when he found out the Sony FS7 didn't have the same sensor as the A7S he said he wasn't interested in it. I would guess that Canon is doing the best that they can while looking out for themselves as well as consumers.
Of course, if the new C300 doesn't have 4K then forget everything I just said lol
It depends on WHEN they implement new functions. Obviously if they only move to 4K when everyone else is moving to something better, then it is still a dollar short a day late.
We want them to implement these features when they are current technology, not when they are old technology.
Its not "a dollar short, [nor] a day late."
And, I find it quite funny that you guys complain so much.
Fact is... Canon had the 1D-C way-way before either A7s or Gh4 came along.
Only problem is... y'all can't afford the 1D-C. Same here, I can't afford it either.
A7s can't record internal 4K, and as per dpreview external isn't even cinema 4K, its UHD (max 3840 x 2160 @ 8bit). http://www.dpreview.com/previews/panasonic-dmc-gh4-sony-alpha-7s
GH4 is better with both cinema 4K (4096 x 2160) internal & external (10-bit), only problem is that its micro 4/3rd sensor.
Both of them sound a bit crippled in my opinion.
They all have their problems, but both Gh4 & A7s is far more affordable.
So to say... this... "We want them to implement these features when they are current technology, not when they are old technology."
It isn't cause Canon doesn't have it, its cause you can't afford it.
