EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: 7D Mark-II: Could video capabilities be unlocked through firmware updgrades« on: December 11, 2014, 11:50:26 PM »
I shot some video yesterday at a friend's photo shoot.
I put my 7D Mark II on a tripod and pointed it at the subjects, with the continuous auto-focus enabled. It started the day at ISO 800, f/4.0, 1/50th.
I hand-held my brand new Sony A7s. Towards the end of the day, it was at ISO 3200, f/3.5, 1/50th.
The video from the Sony is gorgeous and detailed, even at ISO 3200. Beautiful colors, and incredible detail.
The video from the 7D Mark II is terrible, even at ISO 800. It looks soft, washed out, and altogether bad.
We know from the Magic Lantern experience that these Canon DSLRs can capture outstanding video, but that the image processors ruin it. So I would assume that the 7D Mark II is capable of wonderful things.
But I'm pretty much done with Canon for video. I have officially switched to Sony.
Same here, bought A7s, its night and day difference in video quality
