You can't live without a feature that no other camera offers (in camera raw recording with phase detection AF) and you can probably count on one hand or less how many professional grade video cameras can pull it off?If they are really killing DPAF for raw video, then , we'll have to see what Nikon offers. I could live with 20mp, but not raw video wtihout DPAF.
The sigma is also only 8 bit RAW - it's quasi raw. using only UHS-II rated cards, so that gives you an idea on the bit rate.Other cameras offer FF 4k raw (ie Sigma FP) but don't have DPAF either. So why stick with Canon when their main video selling point is disabled for raw?
If the above specs are correct, then DPAF is only disabled for 4K 50p and 60p. This suggests that will be active for 30p?If they are really killing DPAF for raw video, then , we'll have to see what Nikon offers. I could live with 20mp, but not raw video wtihout DPAF.
Exactly. no DPAF would be HUGE step back in my opinion. One step forward (5,4k RAW video) but than SUCH a big step back? thats crazy... Though not unheard of at Canon...Personally, I use regular video cameras, but I generally have a SLR around for gimbals, or hard to mount locations, or bad weather Without DPAF, the stills camera is mostly useless for those purposes. If the 1dx iii had DPAF in RAW video, I would be extremely tempted to buy it to replace my R that I currently for those purposes. Of course, the 1D series has always been so heavy that it generally doesn’t work great for those purposes anyway. But for that small group of professionals that like to shoot with hybrid cameras as their primary camera, they don’t want to be stuck guessing on focus without DPAF.
Its their biggest advantage right now. Without that I dont see why I wouldnt stick to my Lumix S1h. I love the 1DXII and the RAW feature on the Mark III is certainly great. But dismissing such an INCREDIBLE great and usefull feature... that would be a dealbreaker for me. I allreay hesitate to say if I like DPAF or IBIS more... but if will offer NEITHER of these, than I am out.You can't live without a feature that no other camera offers (in camera raw recording with phase detection AF) and you can probably count on one hand or less how many professional grade video cameras can pull it off?
there's DPAF in 4k30p, just not RAW and 4K 60p.WTF. This sounds great, but the MAIN feature in my opinion for videographers is the DPAF. If they realy remove this, it would be a total Dealbreaker for me. If they would do this, I don't see any important advantage over my Lumix S1H which at least has IBIS and great codec options and beautiful colors.
This cant be real. PLEASE Canon, PLEASE. This would be the perfect camera for me.... but without DPAF (and IBIS) its truely disapointing.
This 5,4k RAW would be a nice addition - but DPAF is 1000000x more important. Higher resolutions are not realy that important. But the worls best AF certainly is!
The 1dx mark ii has DPAF in 4k60 but it's cropped. It's not a step back, name another camera that can do full frame 4k60 with autofocusThis can't be true... No DPAF in 4k50? So, the 1d x ii has it but the iii does not? I really hope this is an error the the rumor specs. If it's not an error, then I guess I will be keeping my 1d x ii. For raw video with no AF already have blackmagic pocket with internal raw or the panasonic s1h with ibis. Let's wait to see if it's really true. Maybe it's a mistake and it's supposed to say "no DPAF in RAW", but "no DPAF in RAW + 4k60/50p" is too much to ask for. HUGE step backwards.
DPAF for me is much more important than the no crop. I can compensate crop with a wider lens, simple as that. But having no DPAF oh boy. Then the only FF option with DPAF is the Canon C500. Other than that you have the Panasonic S1H Full Frame that has Auto-focus in 4k60. Not as good as DPAF but very usable.The 1dx mark ii has DPAF in 4k60 but it's cropped.
