What's the point of having 30fps when you have video shot at 30fps? Doesn't the 1DC cover this? Or is this basically what the mirrorless cameras have, just faster? they have very fast frame bursts.. slightly confused?
Video has two disadvantages.
its resolution is usually less than still frame modes/cameras
Except that resolution is measured differently.
For example, when 1080p is played back, there are 2,073,600 pixels but they're a combination of RGB.
Your 20MP DSLR counts each R, G and B (and G
as individual pixels (except if you're Foveon) and does some fancy math to get 20,000,000 combinations of RGB.
If they counted video pixels like they do DSLR pixels, 1080p would be 8MP and 4k would be 33MP.
