The video will not load....

But I agree I want improved video. I want at least a 30 minute record time and the same file overlapping feature found in the 1Dx.

Yeah I fell ya! Great Video!! I also shoot mainly video with the 5d mark II and I haven't heard anything yet as far as video upgrades that would make me spend 3,500.00. I hope canon doesn't disappoint us! I heard that new nikon d800 is a beast. I love canon and want to upgrade but they have to do something great for us video people.

Canon 5d markII vs 5d mark III for video

 I actually have a 5D II and I love it but I use it for music videography and short films. I haven't heard a lot of rumors on upgrades for the Mark III as far as video capabilities, that would make me buy one. Does anyone think there will be a big improvement in it's video quality or capabilities?

I'm surprised that nothing has been mentioned as the 5DII set the bar with DSLR video. I would think that they'd at the very least increase the frame rate to 60 in 720p. The recent photos show a headphone jack which is a plus.

I also haven't heard much about video capabilities like live view AF improvements or additional frame rates. At least we can assume that ISO improvements will be useful for low light video.

Video was brought up in one of the other 25 5D threads and someone mentioned that 720p60 was included with the 7D. If that's true, and I have no reason to doubt it is, there's about a 1% chance that the next 5D won't feature that frame rate at that resolution.
5DIII 8-200mm minus 35mm in there.

Well there you go. We can now hope for 60 @ 1080p  ;D

I'd be surprised if we see 60 fps in 1080p.  If it's not on the 1Dx, it's probably not going to be on the 5Dmk3.
I agree with kidnaper that we should expect 60 fps in 720p.

Here's my guess as to the video improvements:
- 60 fps in 720p
- Improved moire resistance and anti-aliasing
- Manual audio controls
- Mic input (confirmed in the photos)
- Improved lowlight performance
- Improved image quality due to a higher bitrate / codec.

Also, I'm certain we won't see 4K on ANY Canon DSLR apart from the "cinema" line, because this is what Canon will use to justify the price tag of the cinema cameras.

I to use Canon DSLR's for mostly video work. I do photography on the side purely as a hobby.

So I'm definitely hoping to see some features on the MK3 that make it worth the pricetag... if not I'm going to buy another MK2 to add to my gear and use the extra money for a lens or two!

Even 550D/T2i has 720 60p, so I would be surprised if the 5D3 doesn’t have it. The 1Dx is aimed at professional photographers as far as I understand, with some pretty impressive specs. Because of this, I think Canon can release the 5D3 with video features that the 1Dx lack and possibly be able to sell one of both models to the same customer. It will sell well if it’s significantly better than the 5D2 at video – but the potential buyers probably can’t justify the cost of the 1Dx compared to the improvements it actually has.

I saw a video about the 1Dx (rep talking and demonstrating), and it appears to have proper timecode-functionality so it’s easier to synchronize in post, as well as the possibility to remote record up to 10(?) cameras with one click. Seems like a good thing to have if you’re into making music videos, if you’ve got several cameras, that is. Let’s hope the 5D3 will feature this as well.

Moire needs to be reduced to the point where it won't ruin a shot. Don't expect 60FPS in 1080p, because not even the C300 offers that, which I find ridiculous for a $12,000 camera.

The 5D Mark ll and other Canon HDSLR's don't actually shoot true 1080p video, it's actually rated just a bit higher than 720p, so hopefully Canon has improved the sensor/pixel downsampling for better resolution.

since magic lantern can do all sorts of neat stuff why cant it enable 60fps1080p or 120 or 4k video for that matter since the sensor is big enough?

I dont know about all that voodoo stuff that goes on inside these things for all I know there is a squirrel inside a wheel driving the AF system... hang on that might explain!...

...Are you kidding me? That is not true at all. They do in fact shoot true 1080p video.
