8 channel readout
« on: March 05, 2012, 12:17:20 AM »
What does this mean?  The 5DII has four channels, 5DIII has 8, 1DX has 16.  How fast does each channel cycle?

It seems like the 5DIII can capture 6fps at full raster and that in each case a channel correlates with about 3fps.  Does that mean the 5DIII reads out 1/5th of the sensor at 30fps?

How can the camera avoid line skipping if the full sensor can only read out at 6fps?
