We heard rumour that some folk in the video world are selling off gear in anticipation of a global shutter capable of 2.5k video being made available on an, as of yet, unnamed DSLR. While the wording is hearsay, A global shutter DSLR would definitely be an advancement in film-making tech.
Canon’s been pushing the threshold of video DSLR’s since the launch of the 5DMKII, so there’s no surprise that they would be working to incorporate even more “pro” level video tech in their cameras. It has been their push but, as this is from an unconfirmed source, be sure to sprinkle salt liberally with what you read.

Vietnam, Laos & Cambodia
I’ve been busy the last few days travelling and sleeping. The 24 hour journey from Toronto to Hanoi was completed yesterday, and we spent most of the day shooting and eating in the old quarter of Hanoi.
The shooting condition in Hanoi have been less than ideal, a lot of fog and rain. We still ended up getting a few good shots on day one, and we’re hoping to do better on day two.

I’m going to be travelling Northern Vietnam between Hanoi, Cat Ba and Halong Bay. Then we’ll head to Luang Prabang in Laos and will spend time there, as well as Luang Namtha, Nam Ha and Vientiane. From there, we’ll be heading south to Siem Reap and visiting Angkor Wat. We have some other days we have filled yet, so I’m sure we’ll end up somewhere else that’s pretty cool.
I am going to have some help posting to Canon Rumors over the next 3 weeks, posts may not come the time of day you’re used to.
