Definitely a potential game changer for some narrative work, and people doing really short clips. But anyone doing event work (weddings, etc) wouldnt really be able to use it. I remember how mad people were at the 4GB limit (which meant 12mins or so); no way they'd settle for 700 frames.
But, since I'm one of the people who records short clips, I'd love this capability in my 60D, even if its for 10-15s
The thing to remember is this is still in early stages.
They are already working on continuous shooting.
The other issue there is the size and costs of the 1000x and 1066x cards.
I wonder if or when they get the HDMI out working as well, you could hook it up to an Ninja 2 and basically have no need for space or card issues?
The 1Dc is basicaly a 1Dx with other Software and a bigger heat sink.They are claiming that heat is not really an issue, in reality the 1DX "should" be hackable and not have the heat issues too.
I'm not sure if it is the same problem here but I'd be carefull not to damage my 5D due to more heat from the raw output.
The thing stopping them there is Canons legal team.
I wonder how long it will take before Canon come down on ML for releasing this.
It could put a large dent in C100/C300 sales.
