All of the nominated documentaries at the Oscars were shot on Canon cameras.

Hi uri.raz.
Maybe it’s just that the people who think it sucks have absolutely no idea what they are doing, :unsure: they are out there, I just found a desertspoon size glob of axle grease on the back brakes of a car where there should only have been a trace smear of copper grease! :oops::rolleyes: Never underestimate the ability of an idiot! :LOL::LOL:

Cheers, Graham.

Maybe it's people's opinions that suck...

I don't want to be the advocate of the devil but I guess, to be fair, we need to listen to what people are saying.
I shoot on 1DX II and it is fantastic. That has never been the problem with Canon. The problem with them is that they do everything to protect their higher end market.
If you were a filmmaker of that budget, renting few C300 II and a servo 50-1000 wouldn't be an issue. You can afford to put a 5D III or IV hanging all over the place without worrying if they are going to be destroyed in the process or not. I really wished the RP was that kind of camera.
This news is not exciting at all to me. It just says that I bought a fantastic gear. It proves as well that low market will remains neglected. If you re OK with that then rejoice, but if you are not then worry like I do.

never heard that about the cinema line but the prices do suck for the features. that is the real complaint. even though I detect sarcasm.
Cinema EOS cameras do not compete with Red and Arri cameras. They compete with the mid and low tier cameras from the various manufacturers. They do well enough, especially the C300 MII.

True, the C700 is Canon trying to move into "A" camera territory. Most of Hollywood is ARRI, even RED hasn't penetrated the market all that much.

I don't get this. So now that award winning films were shot on Canon, people are not allowed anymore to complain about Canon products and their video capabilities or they are considered idiots? wtf? I guess we are not even allowed to wish for a camera which is in league with 5d2 in it's time.
After reading this news I don't even want 5d4 to shoot FF 4K anymore...I was stupid to want it in the first place and Sony a7r is just another crap giving people unwanted features. I get it.

The point is that FF 4K is not an impediment to creating great art, anymore than Ansel Adams' gear was to him. It is fair to say, "FF 4K is technically possible, gee it would be great if Canon offered this in their SLRs". But it is clearly NOT fair to say "These cameras suck because they don't have FF 4k/feature xyz". There is more to the quality of a video camera than how many pixels it can record, clearly - workflow, ergonomics, serviceability, etc. etc. could be many of the reasons why a camera with less capability in the area of resolution might be superior overall.

If they are happy shooting soft video with clunky cameras with tiny sensors... and saving terabytes of footage for every half minute clip, who are we to object ?
