EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: 5D Mark III Magic Lantern wish list poll

^ just to be clear, i wasn't subverted by someone else's posting, i came up with that lunacy on my own.  But I agree with the spirit of your post.

I know that the camera is 22 MP, but the Bayer pattern is set up at a 4:2:2 ratio, which that means that their are effectively 11 M Green photosites, 5.5M red and 5.5 M Blue. 

If they are alternating lines still, then there just isn't enough information for them to end up with a full HD picture using equal ratios of color information without interpolation.

Is it true that a camera like the 5D3 can't do 4:4:4 color because the Bayer sensor is set-up as 4:2:2?

This could potentially be huge.  The mk3 is a video beast waiting to be let out of its cage.

I read the two links before you posted them. MY point was, that even thought Peter Jackson is using 48fps for smooth 3D, most of the people around here who are "whining"(as you say) want 60fps so they can have the option for slow mo.  At least that's my impression.

I think most people want 60p so they have the option to slow things down.

It has to be out before the summer games.

They got Jeff Cronenweth, David Fincher's DP, who uses RED to play with it.  Maybe he got sick of RED's performance in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  He's a master, it'd be sweet if Canon could convert him.

yup. you have a SWEEET setup with that zeiss glass. no offense to the so called "L" division at canon but Zeiss glass is in a league of its own in both build quality and image quality. They are totally worth the premium because you get something that looks like the work of a skilled craftsman instead of the cheap mass produced feeling from canon lenses.

What premium? I thought the L glass was twice as expensive too?

Did you see the credits? I can't believe it took that many people to produce such a sh*tty project.  That being said, the natural night-time lighting stuff was pretty amazing. I don't think there is another camera out right now, at any price, that could have done that well in the dark.

Stick a 4K sensor in that sucker, add video features such as peaking, zebras etc, remove most unnecessary stills stuff (like 61pt AF etc) All for around the $4k mark and I'm sold.

On saying that though, its a hoax and more than likely never happen.

I'd say there is no way it'll do 4k, that would put it competition with the 1D-C. But they could make it the definitive 1080 raw camera. Higher-bit-rate, but way less user friendly than the c300.

Make it the Mustang Cobra to the c300's Porsche.

Leak or not, I have to believe this camera is eminent. The 5d3 is really just firmware away from being a monster.  The digi 5 has to be capable of at least a sustained bit-rate of 200Mbs. I'm thinking raw 1080 4:4:4. Even if they double the price(like the 1d-c), it would fit into a nice sweet spot.  It would also shut a lot of people up.   

^but it would just be firmware, just like the 1C. They could use a 4:4:4 1080 cam.

Does anyone think there will be a 5C?

I'm all for the 5C,

If dual digi can get me 500Mbit, 1 digi5 should get us 250Mbit. Which would be good enough for 10bit 1080p.


In my mind, they should release something in the $7-8k range in addition to the 1D C- for instance, how about a 5D C that does full (resolved) HD w/4k? My hunch is that they will probably consider something like this in the future but not until after they've milked the pro cinema market for the $12-15k 1D C. Because they know if they released a similar model in the $7-8k range the pro cinema people would just buy that.

But there are $8K models out there, just not by Canon, so why won't people by those instead?
