Didn't even know it could do continuous autofocus. Would not use this for weddings or events anyway.Good luck with the continuous autofocus with BM pocket cinema. It has a mind of its own when comes to auto focus!
Manual focus will be fine though.
That's fie for your personal use, but for selling images the buyers are looking for insane detail, down to the patches on the pilots' arms. Seriously. They want to be able to do an A3 spread cropped to the cockpits.I've also been more successful at capturing some rather difficult peak moment shots (think fighter crossovers at airshows) simply because I have the confidence to zoom out a bit and crop in post, thereby giving my reaction time an edge.
LOL are you kidding with this post? You're not going to see '...the patches on pilot's arms...' while shooting two aircraft in a crossover for a host of reasons that have nothing to do with focal length.That's fie for your personal use, but for selling images the buyers are looking for insane detail, down to the patches on the pilots' arms.
Do you have any idea how tightly you can crop 50mp and still do A3?Seriously. They want to be able to do an A3 spread cropped to the cockpits.
That's not seperated/confusing enough. Add at least 2 or 3 more lines of cameras. Every niche needs its own camera line.So, the full frame R line could have in the future 5 models?
Could it be that the 5ds and 5d4 would be merged into one body, maybe by offering a M-raw option with higher fps?
- RP as base cheap model
- R for the more advanced enthusiast / some pro's
- R high res (5Ds replacement)
- R5 (mid megapixel pro like a 5d4)
- R1 (fast sports/action cam like a 1dx)
As Steve Jobs said "If you don't cannibalize yourself, someone else will."OMG I wish, I would love Canon to the Moon and back forever. But I don't think so. Anything reaching 20-30MP@10FPS threatens 1 series too much.
Because they are fundamentally different designs, the sensor (or the "heart") is placed differently the mount is placed differently, EVF is different, the motherboard is different, everything is different. It would look very ugly if they just changed those things and kept all the rest with even more unused space in the bodies (both the 5D and the 1D have a fair amount of it).In my vision I see a 1Dx look alike with two exceptions: no mirror and no penta-prism in it. Why not keep the good ergonomics of the DSLR and just "remove" the parts which are not needed in the mirrorless camera? if you remove the mirror part, you can squeeze all the electronics into something thinner, no need to decrease the width or the height of the camera. Just a thought...
