EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Canon 5D Mark iii HDMI Clean Output?
« on: April 18, 2013, 11:56:03 AM »
I would seriously consider waiting on the Blackmagic Production cam, it's definitely going to ship in July and a lot more camera for less than $1k more.  I preordered it and the pocket cam, both are going to be stellar.

Why i didn't get a BMPC in short: less DR, no uncompressed RAW, more expensive.  Remember, it's a different sensor, so no guarantee that it's going to have the same beautiful image. 

Indeed, once we start seeing vids, i may regret my decision. But i figure the reason someone gets a BMCC(as opposed to a 5D3) is for the DR and the complete control over it in post.  So why would i want to compromise either of those for the BMPC?

Yah, I just jumped ship to the BMCC. I ordered from Adorama last night, and i already got a notice that it is shipping this week. I guess they've figures out their supply issues.

I waited as long as I could for Canon to give me something with raw that was affordable. I like to grade my video like i grade my pictures, and there was no way i could do this with Canon.

Hopefully they'll come around soon.

I didn't mean to offend. Let me try and remake my point.

The original BMC is now in the hands of many people. It's not without it's flaws, but it is also punching well above its weight (price). 

I think people, myself included, are willing to put up with them because of what you get, once the hassle is over.

But i have no faith that they will deliver the BMPC or the Pocket Camera in by July.  They are effectively selling camera options at this point, on things that don't actually exist.

They have made a lot of promises, and for every promise, later a excuse.  I'd take a wait and see approach to see if they can actually produce and support them.  Companies often have a tough time delivering on the hype.

All they have done is provide the best video IQ below $10K for around $3K. The first gen is finally out and shipping in quantity. 

I was a Canon apologist for the longest time, but show me ANY Canon Cam that can do this.


No chance with the 5D3, not even on a c300(to be fair, the c300 has big-time advantages, in other areas not emphasized in those shots).

Yep, and I honestly don't expect any Canon DSLR to ever shoot in RAW.

If they don't, or at least allow for higher bit depth codecs, the days of people buying Canon DSLRs for video are soon to be over.

I hear that brother. Canon better do something. Black Magic is kicking them in the rear. Did you see this?

4K, s35 global sensor, RAW, for about $4,000  :o


Come on Canon, I can only wait so long before i move to a cheaper option that can produce images like this:

Canon isn't really the place to be if your are only going to use the DSLR for video.

Does anyone know what percent of revenue and profit canon gets from various camera and video product categories?

Surely that information exists, but not for public consumption. My guess is that anyone with access to that info is subject to a confidentiality agreement.

Wow, comparing this to the 5D2 is an insult to common sense. I wonder how much they paid him?

Canon made a big splash by making the 5DII better than it's price(even the 1Ds III couldn't shoot video like the ol' 5D2).  But Canon probably felt that it hurt sales of the flagship in the long run.
It's very possible that they try to play the same trick with the 7DII(as they did for the 5D2).  I think it will be the new "best value" model.  And I think the WOW factor will be bigger than it was for the 5D3.

Some of this corroborates what we've heard before. For example, this does have new video features.  "stills burst". If it is like the v1, than that could mean 30fps of 4K, 14bit raw.

The "stills burst mode" is the most interesting thing here for me. The only question is how long the burst lasts.

The Nikon V1($300) can shoot 4K raw for a second, which makes for some pretty awesome video clips. If they could extend it to 10 seconds (on 7D2), it would be sic.

And some of the posters are giving excellent feedback on the camera itself, but I'm looking at the camera AND what you'll be using it for (which is arguably more important).  You're not doing occasional studio shoots, you're doing real estate videos, which means you'll be shooting a lot and very frequently.  Battery life would also be a big issue in your case, since the internal battery lasts maybe an hour.  Also consider that you won't be shooting real estate videos in 2.5K RAW, it's just going to slow you down way too much, so try and take that spec out of the equation and look at it as just 1080p ProRes.

It won't slow you down too much if you have the hardware to handle it. The hardware is not cheap, but neither is the c100.  But if you try to cheap out on the hardware, RAW will make your workflow miserable if not impossible. 

Why are you not not considering the 5D3? I feel like the only reason i would get a c100 is if i was going to do documentary stuff where i needed to handle tons of footage, run and gun,  and not have to worry too much about low light performance.
