I am pretty sure the marked the 6D not the 7D.
Anyone still doubting that 7D Mark ii has a "really new" sensor, and is not the same as 70D?
I think there room for doubt. It depends on how you define 'sensor' I suppose. The 7DII and 70D may have identical CMOS pixel architecture, but a different microlens arrangement and different CFA, both contributing to increased light transmission, might account for some of the improved performance, and Digic6 might account for the rest.
Well if they do that it's not going to be targeted at video as such, it will be slanted as the ultimate tool for the dreaded "spray & pray" stills shooter. So if they forget mechanical shutter and just go with an electronic shutter, they can get the frame rate up to 30fps and stream frames out to the faster storage cards available in that era. This will be "video" but it will likely have poor DR, poor low-light, poor compression, and/or poor rolling shutter performance, as they are having to read from nearly all of a 36 megapixel sensor continuously.
But fair enough some people may actually enjoy trying to work with 8K video files for motion. I don't think that will be practical quite as soon as 2016 but by the end of the decade sure.
I am generally against continuous drive for stills shooting outside of fast action shots. It is not photography to me. Photography is about recognizing the right time to release the shutter by looking through the viewfinder. Spray & pray detaches you from the moment (and on optical VFs blocks your view of the subject). I will not be shooting 8K video for stills and I doubt I would for motion. The GH4 has barely 1080p resolution in its 4K mode as it is, their rendition of "consumer 8K" will probably have less than 2000lph.Rumours credibility responsibility of the respective rumour websites.
Well I have to say I sure as heck could've used more DR the last few days. On a fast pace, with others some of whom were not into photograph, tons of ground to cover, often fast changing and soon fading light, so much to see, even when multi-shot tripod HDR would've worked only had time to set up the tripod once.
You don't need a tripod to shoot an HDR. In fact, you don't even need one second. Just shoot a bracketed burst, and use software to obtain perfect alignment in post.
It is the 7D3......
Although I will stick with my 4S for as long as that little sucker keeps working. Just love that form factor. :-)
Seriously, I'm sticking with my 4S as well. Meets my needs just fine. Tough little bugger, no case on it, it's dropped from waist level to pavement ~10 times, just some dings on the edges and one $30 back glass replacement.
... my day job is color grading. ... My other job is in camera department ...
In this case, notwithstanding the fact that you don't like EVF's, stop putting down actual photographers who do prefer an EVF in their cameras.
I get it. Sorry. I'll stop insulting actual bad photographers.
