Just curious, on my prior comment about a firmware update like this possibly being a course correction or admission Canon should have offered this at launch (and was withholding it deliberately), with what data would they make this course correction / upgrade decision?
If the firmware only offers this -- a potentially important video functionality -- it might imply that Canon has information above and beyond basic 5D4 sales to make this call. Are there any Canon-branded items more expressly intended for video that might peg that 5D4's weren't selling as well as it could to the video crowd?
Put another way, I'm just curious if low sales of (I'm riffing here) video-centric 5D4 reseller kits or critical video third party accessories (mics, monitors, shoulder rigs, etc.) might get back to Canon and lead to the theory that the lack of C-Log was the reason.
Again: zero interest in video. I'm just interested how Canon turns the knobs it does with existing product lines, and what data / intel they might use to make those calls. Thoughts appreciated, thx.
P.S. And on something I do
care about, why didn't the relatively modest bump to 7 fps stills not set off the same 'action needed' alarms at Canon?
