I've never worked for so little. Except once, and that was a very noble cause.

Yes they want OOC .jpg.
All about speed, bandwidth, storage and ensuring the image's story has not be overly modified etc.
I fully understand Reuters on this.
wants unadulterated shots as close as possible to the old film standards of photojournalism,
Well there's a naive statement if I ever saw one.
It's just that in the 'old film days' people like you didn't know what could be done.
And yes, it is easy to do with a "bulletproof" magnesium body....
People banging on about the AF points must have known the camera has 11 if they did their homework and if thats an issue cough up for the 5D MKIII. For the money and the IQ the 6D is the steal from Canon in DSLRs period.I agree with you. The 6D really is a great deal. The 6D is not an all-around camera, and it was never supposed to be. That's not a problem for me; it satisfies my photography needs. While I wish the camera had more AF points, I knew exactly what I was getting when I chose it over the 7D MkII (the two were equally priced when I was shopping for them).
It will most likely still be only as "clean" as what you get out of a 5D3 now or any other DSLR Canon makes, which still has some layer of processing on it compared to, say, Alphas. Sure the Atomos or Odyssey can do ProRes, but if the output still has that "Waxy" look people tend to compare DSLRs with, then it's not as nice. I don't believe you're going to get a "clean" output like you do on the C300.Yeah this is much more in line with what I've been thinking. Taking that 24MP count up from the t6i, making it FF and DPAF. Even 20MP DPAF (FF flavor of the 7D2) would be fine. Obviously they need to maintain this camera as fast action light monster. Digic 7 was a given. No news there. 15fps, right where it should be. Someone said stronger base plate? Probably? But the all motor mirror of the 5DS? Doubt it. I would think that system, while far quieter and less vibration causing, is also much slower. A spring loaded return seems faster, and 24 MP isn't nearly as sensitive to motion blur as 50MP, so is it really necessary?
I'm sure they're going to find a way to stick in WiFi and GPS. It's the 1DX2. And no, you aren't going to get the same codec as their C300 for 4k but you will get the senor technology from it.
If it supports external recording via clean HDMI, then the recorder can use ProRes as the codec.
Have you used an Atomos? I have with the 5DIII and the Ninja 2. I have never experienced the "waxy" look. The video is sharp and clear and it is at 4:2:2. I have mixed this video with that from the C100 being externally recorded in the same manner and it is impossible to tell which is which once the grading is done.
The only Canon cameras that support clean HDMI out, during recording, to my knowledge are the 5DIII and the 7DII. That is a lot different than recording internally and then using the HDMI port to send the video to an external monitor.
Is HDMI out on the 5DIII sharper than internally recorded? Some people say that the 5DIII is not really 1080p in sharpness, but only about 720p.
If the Atomos 4:2:2 gets a sharper image as well as better color, I'd use it. What is your experience? Any links or reviews on this?
15fps has to approach the limit for AE/AF shooting because of the mechanical aperture.
How about the rest of you guys? Is no WB button an issue for you?Not for me. The "Q" button menu choices are great for getting quick access to functions I like to control, white balance among them. A dedicated WB button would be pointless for me. Save that space for something else that the "Q" menu doesn't cover.
