On the R, if you go to page 3 of the C.Fn3: Operation Menu, "RF lens MF focus ring sensitivity," there are options for "Linked to rotation degree" and "Varies with rotation speed" the second of which I believe is the default, but I'm not sure since I have it set to linear. I think I changed that during my initial setup.Nope. This is NOT available on the R. Which by extension means neither the RP. That’s a firmware fix that needs to happen ASAP.
Ok, I'll have to check that again Thanks! I was looking in the AF (purple) menus (in camera mode, not video) and it wasn't there. And I based that off the Gerald Undone video of the R5 where he shows the linear focus control setting IN the purple AF menu. There was some specific setting for making the ring linear MF response, but apparently it's in a totally different place in the R than the R5.... VERY weird. I'd like to see a firmware update to put that control IN the purple AF menu tab, because, go figure, that would be where most people would go looking for it LOLOn the R, if you go to page 3 of the C.Fn3: Operation Menu, "RF lens MF focus ring sensitivity," there are options for "Linked to rotation degree" and "Varies with rotation speed" the second of which I believe is the default, but I'm not sure since I have it set to linear.

I haven't shot much in the way of manual focus with my one RF lens, so I can't attest to its functionality, but I wanted to make sure you knew where it was.
I'm on firmware 1.6.0
It probably won't be, but man I really wish Canon would bring back the XC form factor with an interchangeable mount.This honestly sounds like a very workable, tangible camera. Surprised to hear it's smaller even than the 1DX, I'm guessing a similar build to the XC-15?
1) Absolutely on SDI. Let's hope so.* Why have 1 cfexpress and 2 SD slots? Better is just 2 cfexpress slots to record to both simultaneously.
* It better have a quiet but effective fan to keep it cool so it can run continuously in all modes if desired.
Well, yes BUT. The 1DC was so named as it shared a 1DX body. I REALLY do NOT think Canon would debut its 1RX body on this camera. So I will probably have some special/new designation as Canon has not made this body type before.R1c sounds like a nice name for it
This seems to work for the EOS-R and EOS-RP so should work for the R5 - R6 and hopefully the RF Camcorder.yeah i was wondering how they would make it so different that it woudln't work w/ another camera with teh same mount. Maybe has to do with some specific design relevant to the internal ND squeezed into a small area?
Thats the only spec I was missing from the list. Internal Raw. A must with my C200 and a desire for this new RF camera.All I can say is wow! I just wrote my contact at my local shop to let them know that I am interested in purchasing. For video work this will be an amazing camera. As others have noted this is the first Cine camera that is affordable by my standards. I also really like the fact that is is rumored to use the same batteries as the R5. It will be great to have two separate systems using the same batteries! I just hope that it offers internal RAW recording like the C200.
At the very least, if you're videoing something and the high quality modes fail (or won't start), you can fall back on "ordinary" 4K. (I recognize that's useless if you want slo-mo--though that could at least be alleviated if 1080p were available in high frame rate, which would essentially have the same data rate as 4K 30/25p, which doesn't overheat.) Other cameras, when they overheat, are complete bricks. If it's something time critical (e.g., some 'moment' at a wedding), you're SOL, whereas with regular 4K you've got something to work with.True, but doesn't work the other way around – the exact issue (= if you have to start with filming line-skipped 4K – you might end up having less / no time in slow-motion. Something that needs testing to figure out if it works. There are reports of all heat sensitive modes being disabled after simply taking photos.
Thanks for the insight. All I know about RED is that they are a deeply respected name in the industry. This new RED Komodo / Stormtrooper could be the weapon.I would say not really. At least based on market absorption seems RED is used more for full on filmmaking vs canons more for docuemntary/interviews and talking heads (but also some short films). hollywood basically shoots 100% arri or red.
Another example peter mckinnon uses a c500 to shoot himself talking to the camera, but uses either mirrorless ( or back before a RED) to shoot his cinematic sequences. But the komodo is likely to cross a few barriers.
but there's no rules, you can shoot anything for anything you want.:0 just my 2c
I guess that's why it's reported as 6 stops of ND rather than the 10 on the C200?What I'm REALLY interested to see is how Canon is going to implement these rumored built in ND Filters (assuming mechanical/glass, not electronic). It's easy to use in EF mount thanks to the space. But RF flange distance is WAY less. Not a lot of room in there for ND glass.
If correct, then a purely physical limitation of flange distance. The solution Is the EF-RF adapter with drop in ND. But even having a built in 6 stopper is great. That would probably still handle a wide array of situations and you can still stack the adapter or a front screw in or matte box system if need beI guess that's why it's reported as 6 stops of ND rather than the 10 on the C200?
Which is a shame as the extra 4 stops are at times useful when wanting to shoot wide open with a fast prime in very bright sunlight at 25p.
