    Given the video above, professional content production (live events, corporate and the likes).

    Good news is : in house, canon 1" sensor with dpaf. Oneday, we could see a powershot with a canon 1" sensor.
    Canon has had 1" sensors with DPAF is pro camcorders for quite some time.
    What surprised me is that the one camera without DPAF has hybrid AF.
    I was not aware of any Canon cameras with that.
