EOS Bodies / Re: 70D manufacturing delays

Personally, I don't mind the same sensor as the 70D, but they would have to up the ante on everything else.
AF, metering, video capabilities.... Show us what the true potential of Dual Pixel tech really is...

Canon has been cornered by the D800, GH4 that whole line of A7 cameras....
Its time to show them who the top dog is... end of story.

I know its still a rumor.... in any case...

**Please note the sarcasm**
WAAAAAT???
Still 20MP? I remember not too long ago someone was saying something about 24MP and that they wouldn't put the same sensor of the 70D in a 7DII.

I guess, the a7s has proven something over the a7r...

News from Reikan Focal ?

You're kidding right? April Fools hasn't worn off yet?
You have a picture of what looks like a 5D and Product ID: 12345678 :D

The primary benefit of mirrorless for me is not size, it's being able to accurately manual focus at f1.4 with the viewfinder.



You don't need mirrorless for that... you need focus peaking...
Install ML or grab yourself  one of these:  http://www.amazon.com/Swivi-SV-50H-II-External-Monitor/dp/B00E3VSA7W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1397511395&sr=8-1&keywords=Swivi+screen

Though I don't know if either will work well for pictures, but it should...

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Replacement Mentioned Again [CR1]
« on: April 13, 2014, 06:45:34 PM »
From the UK magazine T3 - "A firmware update in 2012  improved Canon’s aging 7D  DSLR greatly, but now the  Mark II is officially on the  way. It’s been road-tested  at the Winter Olympics and  will have another outing  at the World Cup before  landing in time for Chrimbo"

They need to put it through a second run through before releasing it?
Ok, at least an official announcement would be nice.

This is fun:

Not that I plan to switch; I like the mix....


lol... and thank you...
I was strongly considering a A7s... but after reading this... I'm glad that I won't be going through Stage 3 through 7 :D

Well, this is the camera to beat in terms of DSLR video.

Well, the new Blackmagic also comes with a global shutter & takes the whole host of Canons lenses w/o adapter.
Not to mention the more suitable form factor.

I don't know... thats definitely built for TV shows, looks like something thats always going to be on a tripod or dolly... not for handheld, steadycam stuff. I can't even imagine it on a crane....

And, I'm only saying this because they teamed up with Atmos... and Atmos created the Shogun 4K recorder with a 7" screen.

Outright Epic Rig.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Quick start videoing on 5Diii
« on: April 09, 2014, 03:14:23 PM »
OMGzzzz fps! this is the most complicated thing ever. I don't even know how to work Premier Pro! I assume that I bang it all into there, do my cutting and post-produce in After Effects???


Its not that complicated.
Go to the camera menu, set it up the way you want it.
1080/30p (looks more like home video)
1080/24p (looks more like film).
720/60p (for slow motion stuff)

Set shutter speed to be double that of the frames, so 30p = 60; 24p = 48 (but there is no 48 on your 5DIII, so set it at 50 - close enough) and obviously 60p = 120.

Lenses / Re: Canon 50mm f1.8 MK1

I have one of these, and the metal mount is only one part of the whole. The overall build quality of the body, the focus ring is also better.

Only problem I've known of the plastic mount is the problem that if you dropped it, not only is it prone to break but it gets stuck onto the body. I had a friend where that happened and he had to send it to a shop, because he was afraid that the internal mirror and sensor may be affected if he used brute force to remove the lens.

Canon General / Re: NAB 2014 Live Blog from Las Vegas

Come on, be a bit more ingenious with the comments on the Sony A7s.

"With no sign of release in the near future, no internal 4k, and no pricing the Sony a7s seems to be a no go for video at this point."

Ok, writing such a comment is ok if you're a Canon fan-boi and looking to put other vendors down but it is pretty disingenuous as there is a LOT of off-camera video recording done already. e.g. look at the SDI outputs on Panasonic's 4K unit, SDI outputs on Canon's C500 for 4K, etc. Are you trying to say that vendors put in ports for external recording but expect nobody to use them? I think not. Similarly the "no sign of release in the near future" is just dumb. Canon was far worse with the 1DX.

Step it up a bit guys ...

Of course, you're not a Canon fan-boy, but I don't think whoever is blogging this is a Canon fan-boy either.
I know this because obviously, its not people from this forum that are blogging from NAB, some third party... I mean look at the last sentence on the first posting of this very thread it says "We’re currently travelling to Namibia, so we are not attending NAB 2014 ourselves (CR peeps). We’ll be there next year!"

Plus, they talk about the new AJA Scion 4K Camera and the Panasonic GH4 with much enthusiasm...

You seem to have bypassed everything that is said and have honed in on the negative feedback...
Did you skip the part that said, "Sony showed off some ISO 12,800 shots that looked pretty darn good"?

   4K TV is still very expensive at the moment... Hmm... May be we can do a poll to check how many members in CR had a 4K TV, how many intend to get a 4K TV in one year time and what's the maximum $$$ you willing to paid for a TV??

   Have a nice day.

See how most people seem to be jumping around this question.
Anyway, let me be the first, I just got my 60 inch FHD TV a few years ago (2-3 years ago to be precise)... so no upgrades for another decade at least. At which point, I hope the first 8K TVs will be showing up.
Come on now, don't be a spoil sport, how many of you guys own a 4K TV? How many are going to be buy one in the next year or two?

Also... how many of the Pro-4K peeps are going to actually buy the Sony a7s?
Or are they going to keep badgering Canon to make a camera similar to the Gh4 and/or a7s?
At this point, even if Canon released something tomorrow with 4K, I don't think the same people that are badgering right now, will buy into it... they will find some fault in it and complain some more....
In fact, I don't think they can afford a new camera right now..... they just want something to complain about.

Of course, these are lower end DSLRs...they aren't exactly designed for video, it's more of an afterthought, and they all still have rolling shutters and the like as well.


I'm not trying to hurt anyones feelings, but..

Thats a poor mans excuse for not knowing or not willing to learn how to use the current equipment he/she has... Even with an Arri... a poor man would say the same thing.

Please look at video examples posted in the video thread, especially with something like the t2i, t3i, 60D...
For example: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=19358.0

There are a few 60D and t2i video clips on the Video & Movie Section of the Forum, and they look quite professional. Please use the search option to find those videos. You can also find videos from t3i and t2i on YouTube.

Here is an example of a Music Video shot with a t2i:
Wisam Benhachem - Perfect Girl (Canon T2i Music Video)

And, there are hundreds of examples, just like that...

Again, I'm not trying to make anyone feel bad...
So what exactly are we doing wrong?

Aside from the in camera processing bit... Don, you are obviously recording at 1080/30p with a shutter of 1/30th of a second. What lens are you using?

What do you do your editing on PC/MAC?
How come you can't choose HD on Vimeo? What resolution are you uploading it onto Vimeo?

Don't worry about hurting my feelings.... I will be the first one to say that I really don't know what I am doing with video...

I have shot a lot of far better video than the one I posted, I picked that one to show the beat frequency between the camera frame rate and the wings flapping.... it was deliberately chosen to be bad....

That said, what software do you recommend for editing movies? I have Pinnacle and it is terrible!


Go with Adobe Premier...

mkabi, to my knowledge, those RED sensors have never been released. I remember seeing them talked about years ago, but I never heard anymore than that.



Sorry for going off topic and off-brand so much...
Possibly they thought that 28K is over-kill? Not to mention the storage and work-flow issues...
IMAX is apparently 9K? Thats enough???
