Not sure how accurate this is, but I've heard numerous times that the Scarlet is going to be a 2/3" sensor. After making people wait an eternity for the Scarlet, if that is true, it would be the biggest disappointment in camera history. If it is 2/3", I guarantee they will sell about 2 cameras total.
As for Canon, where is the middle ground? It's great that you guys are finally introducing a $10K+ camera that's "Alexa" good, but since the 1D is still H264 compression (ie. low end), what camera is going to be in the middle for video?
I just hope they introduce something in the same price range as the Panny AF101 or the Sony FS100. Something more people can afford.
Or just get it over with and introduce a good full frame video DSLR. That's what made Canon video famous. People just want an update to that with some tweaks. Evolve the same formula and just listen to what your customers want (4:2:2, 1080p 60fps, a flip screen), and you will sell a lot of cameras
Don't evolve the formula and don't listen to what your customers want, and you will sell a lot less cameras. The only thing that sets Canon video apart from the others is Full Frame. Without that, Canon is just another fish in the pond.
