It is all FAKE!!!!!

Read This

If it is true, why there isn't any sample video, or he demonstrate on camera recording,

these are are 3 different image files just place in camera memory card, with three different

selections hi lighted and just viewed on camera as image preview, and navigated from one to 2nd, 3rd

and same back.

just like below







And finally

When he accidentally pressed zoom out button where small thumbnail is displayed

i've print screen from video he shows already different three   "K" settings are selected

watch the video and check carefully by pausing it.



Thanks Canon rumors, allowing readers replies...

I see what this guy did he screwed up at the end of the video he zoomed out of the fake photo into the 4 thumbnails mode. U can clearly see the fake at 1:41
There are at least 3 actual photos on the screen, each with a highlighted blue 16K, a second one with 8K and a third with 4K. The way he shows it is by pressing the next and previous buttons on the camera to trick you into thinking the selection is real.
Some people have way too much free time. Bozos.

Thanks u saved me the hassle of doing this myself. If he didn't screw up and zoomed out, it looked pretty convincing...

Cheers

Camlessphotography, I noticed that too, but I think (as other people have said) this is all just a parody in which the actor exaggerates the claim of 4K video by saying he can do 16K and in addition shows how the person in the video explaining the 4K video could have simulated it. This, combined with bad acting, gives you this video.

Please don't take it seriously!!!!!!!!!!!



That being said the 4K firmware seems like a hoax or maybe social engineering to get everyone to download a virus.  All these videos saying it is coming with no demonstration of it working makes me think it is all BS.  If it is real just show it working, it is that simple, stop dicking around with all these announcement videos.

They just posted another announcement videos that shows nothing, just talk.

Wooo! Happy New Year to everyone switching their digits over tonight.

Have fun and play safe.

4K Firmware Teaser One more firmware teaser was released today. I’m eager to find out if it’s real. A lot of folks have made up their mind that it isn’t, I will wait another day. :)

I just wish that Canon would give us a new lens like it did last year this time with the 70-200 2.8 II. 24-70 IS. Now is the time. Just like last year and the year before and the year before. 2006 I think is when the rumors started circulating about this lens. It's so long overdue that it pains me to still have to talk about it not existing. That, and maybe I'll pick up the 24 tse I've been lusting over forever.

Anyway, I have a feeling that 2011 is the year of Panasonic.

GH2 drops in price some
GF3 gets introduced
fast constant aperture wide to tele zoom introduced
ultrawide pankake (12 mm)

I buy a kit with wide pancake (or 7-14 zoom), 100-300, nokton or panasonic equivalent 25 mm, and fast constant ap. zoom. Do some serious travel photography.

Just do the math how much data raw in 4K would produce and would have the need to be compressed. If you know how large the memory of the camera is and how fast, you could get your answer. So, 6 seconds he claims to have it running, that is quiet a lot of information.
BTW how can a camera produce 8 K or 16 K when the sensor is not able to produce that even in still? Is there none who get this, that it is a joke? Rolling shutter Off: haha.

Nice fake, too nice to be true.

Happy 2011

Its real but will do nothing for you practicly but only produce 4k resolution clips at 1GB per minute, offering sharpness of really good 720p... Enjoy!

The original post is serious (or at least claims to be, we will find out today).

The video you are referring to is a parody - there are quite a few clues to help you work this out - like the phrase "IT'S A PARODY" in the description - or perhaps the part where it says "Please don't take it seriously!!!!!!!!!!!".

Exactly. Like I was saying before, a hardware limitation causes the camera to only read about half the lines on the sensor and to create a 1080p image from that, which isn't actually anywhere close to real 1080p because there just isn't enough information coming from the sensor for that.

This is just a better way to encode that inadequate signal. This makes 4k absolutely pointless, but perhaps 2k with a higher bitrate could be an improvement over what we have now. The extra resolution is pointless, but maybe better compression could be a significant difference.

*UPDATE* It was a Hoax

Planet5D Exclusive

Mitch at Planet5D has been given some “exclusive” information.


We’ve been given nothing to prove that this software is real yet, so we’re posting this just as it was given to us – and we’ve been told that 11:11pm EST is still the time where the software will be released. “URL will be available at 11:11. There will be a link in the youtube video that will go up at 11:11.”


Read More at Planet5D


Sorry

It turns out the 4K firmware was a bunch of rubbish.


As someone who has dealt with Canon’s legal department, I can assure you they wouldn’t pay out $6.50, let alone $650,000. If you’re going to lie, at least make it believable.


I will never fall for such crap again unless I’m given the software/hack beforehand to test out.

Two key giveaways for me that something was not right was he was going to charge for it and never showed it working.

Here is the video he posted today with a rick-roll in it, dumb

I've always relied on CR for decent intel, I can't believe there are some true oddballs out there starting off 2011 in such bad taste..

The youtube video posted at 11:11pm with the supposed link to the firmware turned out to be a seriously passe-rickrolling video. This is 2011, and rickrolling went out of style way back in 2009. I believed the creator of the hoax left us with such "wishful thinking" originally when he decided to use 11:11pm as the launch time, and everyone fell for it.

What bothers me is that why someone would drag an innocent interviewer into the mess, along with his own entourage of family videos on youtube. I notice that his family videos are all private now, and probably for his own good measure.

The backlash that the hoax creator receives is his own undoing!
