Canon Rumors:
From Philip Bloom
I was just notified on my Facebook page by Forian Bottger about this that someone called Earz62801 will be releasing a firmware hack for the T2i/ 550d (not the other Canons) that will give it 2K, 3K,4K video recording capability and bit rates between 45mb/s and 175mb/s. . The date of the release is Jan the 1st. This is nothing to do with Magic Lantern, just totally out of the blue from this person.

if true ... thats amazing

can somebody tell me what exactly is 2k, 3k and 4k video? better than 1080p?


Video out of the cameras now is like a jpg - 4k would be akin (not exactly before i get based) to raw

this is the very very simple explanation...
