EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III/X Information [CR1]

But they didn't do that.  They put an 18Mpix FF sensor in the 1Dx, not this rumored 22Mpix FF sensor.  If these are so close in image quality that nobody can see a difference as you state, why then is it not in the 1Dx?

Because the 18Mpix (larger pix) is better for stills. The only reason to have the 22Mpix in the FF is so you can do better line skipping video at 1080p.

People can appreciate an image of a bird caught in flight, but a video of the same birds tracking across the screen? Boring.   

If you put up your still of a bird in flight next to my video shot at 300fps played back at 24fps, I'm gonna get more viewers.

i dont mean those family ones.. i mean these: http://www.usa.canon.com/app/html/HDV/index.shtml

*nods* that is exactly the line that I am wondering how the C300 fits in and if it signals a phasing out of that product line.

Thought marekjoz does bring up a good point, as PaS and DSLRs increasingly become multimedia devices, what will become of the dedicated 'family' camcorder?  If it is not worth it to produce dedicated still cameras, why would it be worth it to produce dedicated video ones?

My guess is that this thing will still be limited in terms of battery life and storage.  It's not the type of thing you'd use if you were trying to film a wedding.  It also won't come with a nice cheep zoom. My guess is that body only, it will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 4000. This price keeps it well below the c300 and the RED Scarlet.  In other words, this is will be Canon's offering to maintain its status as the indie filmmaker's tool of choice.

Did they let the engineers take these? Picture 2 is just terrible. How am I supposed to judge the capabilities of the camera with shite worl like that?

Does anyone know the bitrate or the chroma sample for the video?

^^

Not to mention that RED's sensor tech is almost outdated at this point, whereas the sensor in the c300 is state of the art.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Splitting Audio from a Mono Mic

To get rid of that hiss you can...

1. Record externally as much as possible, and then sink up the audio in post.  You can just plug a mic into a laptop.

2. Use a noise reduction plugin. However, to use these properly you must record your background noise, without any interference, for each set.

Most editors will allow you to use mono as stereo, even the open source editors.

For example, if I were using Final Cut, I'd use a panning envelope to also give it the illusion of true stereo.

Its not a big problem. You could also use something like SoundForge to make it stereo before you bring it into the editor.

I have a 36X24 print from an Epson 7900 of the Old Well at night(UNC),  from my 5D mkii. It looks awesome, with no pixelation visible.

Tell me if I'm wrong, but I read the D4 video specs and it says 1080i (not 1080p) for uncompressed readout. I'm not a video man, but I think this could be a snag for some.

I think its the separate RGB channels that are interlaced at a higher frame rate. This may be done to reduce motion artifacts.

Can u pls explain a bit more,? thank u.
1080i won't be giving the same image as 1080p. then whats the advantage we got from D4, i know uncompresses thing, but does really improve the quality over 1080p+H.264?

Start at the top of page 13. This explains how the canon-c300 uses a faster frame-rate interlaced set to produce 1080p. I presume the D4 will do something similar.

Here is a sample D4 video, pretty impressive shallow DOF stuff.  Nice tracking shots too!

The C300 has an HDMI out, so why can't it pump out raw?

EOS Bodies / Re: C 300 is not an alternative to 35mm motion picture film.

Looking further through this :

http://learn.usa.canon.com/app/pdfs/white_papers/EOS_C300_Sensitometric_Characteristics_WP.pdf

It appears that the camera is capable of parallel outboard recording over a 10-bit carrier (if desired). Does this mean 10-bit is just a firmware upgrade away?
