The new c100 needs to just be the c300 at ~$6000. The new c300 can then have a new sensor, 4K, and a 10 bit internal codec. C500 can stay put as the Canon raw camera that no one wants.

Watching a documentary in a true large format IMAX theater is impressive visually. For most everything else, whether it's on the big screen or on my SDTV makes essentially no difference to me.
I find the difference between ML raw video and native 5D3 video to be entirely immaterial.
No difference seen in detail and texture between waxy 5D3 native video and richly textured ML RAW and no difference in blown highlights and crushed black detail between the two?
No difference between 4k and 1080i and 480i even for nature?
I guess people sure see things differently. To me the difference is almost unimagineably great.
One day some company will make a camera that produces colours the way the 5D does in raw. God the colours just sing. The gradiations, the highlight rolloff, the shadow information, the feel and aesthetic of the image. No other camera produces that image it's uncanny.
So i'm guessing the NDA expiration was nothing?
Just because an NDA expires does not mean that the signers are obligated to post information.
Does the playback on 5d3 (when recording RAW) using ML strobe?
And in what way is selling the IP to said someone makes more sense and gives better protection than hiring said person to protect the company's IP w/o selling it?
I hate patent trolls. I don't know how anyone can be okay with making money by charging someone for their own work. It would be similar to a photographer that sold a photo to a bunch of clients. Then someone else copywrites the photo and makes the the original photographer pay royalties.
Hopefully the LOT Network will cut down on patent trolls. They have started out with some big names.
Now we just need a network for Photography Forum Trolls.
I've been asked last minute to video an outdoor wedding for a friend of mine this coming Saturday. I've never really shot video before and before agreeing to do the wedding I did caution that I have no video experience (the reponse I was given was it's better than nothing). I would at least like to do a serviceable job and was wondering if anyone had any tips, tricks, or tutorials about video shooting in general. I have a 70D and a 6D with a 17-40L, 24-105L, 35 f/1.4L and 100mm 2.8L (I also have a GoPro3 that I may set up as well).
With the 70D, I would like to take advantage of the touchscreen autofocus capability. My biggest concern revolves around the clicking noise from the lens while using the autofocus function. The easy solution would be to buy (or rent) an STM lens (or an external mic), though I would like to avoid buying (or renting) as much as possible (I'm not getting paid to do this). Does anyone have a workaround? Because all my lenses are USM, is it better to NOT use the autofocus capability?
In terms of setup, I was thinking of setting up my 6D on my tripod with my 17-40 and letting that roll throughout the ceremony. I was also going to use my GoPro3 for the same purpose, just from a different angle (anyone have any suggestions?). With the 70D, I was going to use the 24-105 and a monopod to do the majority of the handheld shooting. Does this sound reasonable?
Again I have no clue what I'm doing for videos and any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
