Canon Prototype Full Frame DSLR Shooting RAW Video?

HDSLR w/Raw Video?

1Ds4 or 5D3?

In my inbox, as well as posted on Planet5D (not sure which came first). There is apparently a full frame dSLR being tested in Europe that can shoot RAW video.

Could the camera be the upcoming 1Ds Mark IV or early testing of the 5D Mark III? I’ve been told previously that the 1Ds4 would have video features currently not available in any Canon dSLR.

The 5D Mark III is starting to get whispers around the web. From myself as well as others. I won’t be posting much at this time about such a camera until regular sources start to say something. The camera could come as early as Photokina in September, but I’m still wagering on a 2011 release.

1Ds Mark IV Release Date
Everything has been quiet about a concrete launch date. There also hasn’t been any new word on lenses. Going by past experience, this is the calm before the storm.

  1. I’d expect well over $25,000. There is no competition anywhere near that price, and with a small user base, the price will jump a lot.

  2. The problem with current video for motion picture work, or even large screen TV is the compression artifacts in the existing Canon video that makes movie grade editing a big problem. The video is run thru very high end computers to attempt to clean it up. This is slow and expensive, as well as taking time.

    Raw video can be edited before producing output in whatever video format you want, and left uncompressed or use much less compression.
