EOS Bodies / Re: Live Coverage of the Announcement
« on: November 03, 2011, 09:07:12 PM »
Canon published 4 announcements. One of them is about new DSLR http://www.canon.com/news/2011/nov04e04.html...



OOOOO look at this the APS-H will live!

"Cropped to APS-H-equivalent size (dimensions measuring approximately 80% vertically and horizontally of a 35 mm full-frame sensor) when recording in 4K."
I don't know why it crops to APS-H, because the new zooms specifically are not compatible "35mm full-frame or APS-H camera sensors."  Are they saying that their yet-to-be-released 4K DSLR, which is full frame and crops to APS-H in 4k mode, is unable to take advantage of their new 4K zoom lenses??

Damn son. I want these lenses to AF.
You also want the zoom lenses to be compatible with your 1dx, 1d4, 1ds3, 5dmkII, or 5D; however, they are not. :(

Great find!!

So it is supposed to film in 4k in an APS-H equivalent crop mode, interesting.

I just read in http://www.canon.com/news/2011/nov04e02.html article that the new EF mount zoom cinelenses are only compatible with Super35 or APS-C crops. What the heck? How can they market them as true EF lenses if they aren't even compatible with the flagship models of DSLRs? However, the primes are compatible with FF bodies.

Why would they
Well, a 14-60mm 2.6 would be awsome on a 5D...
Even without AF, it would be. It would be Canon's first sub 2.8 (and this is T/2.6, which is better than F/2.6) zoom lens for the EF mount; that's pretty neat, and it covers an incredible zoom range for a full frame body.

By the way, the Q&A just started, and the list price is 20k, not 16, as the DVinfo article stated.

We're running a way a bit here.  Couldn't the DSLR picture just be of the 1D X with a purple 'C' badge on it, to show that you can use the new cinema EF lenses on a regular EOS stills camera?
I was thinking the same thing a bit ago.  Also, is there any significance to the RED color, indicating that this camera aspires to compete with RED equipment? Or is it just an additional notification of a professional body/lens combo?

The three primes are 24 f/1.5, 50 f/1.3, and 85 f/1.3.  It is interesting how the 50 and 85 are slower than the standard L series EF lenses, especially for such an expensive camera. They better be good.

No they are T/1.5 and T/1.3.  T Stops and F Stops are different.  I cant remember the exact difference, but I know that T stops let in more light, but T/1.3 is superior to f/1.2 for sure.
Oh dang. Well I feel stupid now.

I just googled it, and a T-Stop is the effective F stop of a camera based on the percentage of light the lens transmits.  For example, a F/4.0 lens with 50% transmittance is a T/5.6 lens.

Edit: Apparently I didn't know T stops and F stops were different; thus, the new primes are better. I apologize.

Never mind, Engadget just did it for me. Check this out!

It looks pretty similar to a 5D2, but it has a vertical grip seemingly attached.

Edit: There is an additional button just to the left of pentaprism, and it does seem to look more like a 1d series.

Anyone else notice that the camera on the left in the group shot of all the new stuff is not the same as the C300 and it's NOT a 5D?  And has the same little light on it as the C300...Another cam on the way?

That'll be the 5D3... they'll announce it at the end as "oh, and just one more thing...".... woohoo bornshooter was right!!!

My thought exactly.  It looks like a standard DSLR; and they are going to say hey by the way we have the 5d-C have fun with that Nikon.
Or it could be a 1DX just rebadged to fit the "cinema" theme?  I'm wildly hopeful that it would be a 5D3, but I somehow would have thought CR guy would have leaked it; however, considering how little was released about this C300, Canon could easily sneak another thing in.

The sensor isn't actually 4K, it's QFHD (3840x2160), slightly (very slightly) smaller than true 4K. The lack of AF and AE is perfectly normal for a PL camera but really weird for an EF camera and, at $16,000, this doesn't qualify as disposable like the 5D2 is. Like you said, it's really poorly suited for fast-moving documentary photography, whatever the subject.

Rhetorical question: how long until Canon introduces the next camera in this line?
My mistake; I noticed that as well, but I pretty much took the Dvinfo article and copied the first things I saw.

http://www.dvinfo.net/article/acquisition/canon-eos/canon-usa-announces-cinema-eos-c300-and-eos-c300-pl-cameras.html

Pretty extensive article on DV info.  I don't know how they gleaned so much info without a press release or anything, but there it is. 4k sensor, but only 1080p/30 output onto CF cards at 50Mb/s.
NO AF or AE,  interestingly, so Canon is isolating big time prosumers and wedding videographers who can't do another take if they mess up the focus.

Sorry for the dumb question, but what "4k capture, 2k record" mean?
Either what the guy above me said, or it's sensor's resolution is 4k and it outputs its footage (either through HD-SDI or onto CF or SSD) in 2k, possibly upgradeable (in the future) to full 4k RAW output.

5D Mark II, 100-400 F/4.5-5.6L
Taken at: ISO 100, 1/160sec, f/6.3
No post processing, so I don't know what's up in the bottom right rocks.

You can buy additional focusing screens to emulate cropping.

How would that work ?

The focusing screen would be partially black, causing the view screen to have a black frame, and somewhere after the readout stage the processor would realize the photo was taken with a crop-emulating-focusing-screen and throw the frame ?
It could be done with small contacts on the edge of the screen that interface with the body, somehow or other.

Aside from the extra engineering it would take, personally I think it's a bad idea; it's just another part that would require very high tolerances to screw things up.

The edges of the screen wouldn't need to be black, though; it'd be best to have them transparent with just an outline (perhaps semi-transparent) so you get the advantage of seeing more outside the area where the frame will be captured.
Couldn't it be done in a similar way to production studio monitors (basically the same way you suggest) show what is actually being displayed by outlining the final view in a boxed outline?

United States / Re: 2.0.9 firmware update
« on: July 30, 2011, 11:34:24 AM »
Yep, thats correct. thanks Stu, just wanted to be absolutely sure. Appreciate quick feedback.

This is what's written on the canon download page "Firmware Version 2.0.9 is for cameras with Firmware up to Version 2.0.8. If the camera's firmware is already Version 2.0.9, it is not necessary to update the firmware". ??????

My last update was 2.0.7    ?????
Up to version 2.0.8, as in including 2.0.7 and 2.0.6, so updating from 2.0.7 is perfectly fine.
