Did some homework and found this, a good discussion on bit depth: https://petapixel.com/2018/09/19/8-12-14-vs-16-bit-depth-what-do-you-really-need/. So yeah, never mind the 16 bits.it really depends on the amount of noise and how much data you lose to noise. I haven't seen anywhere that the cameras need 16 bit ADC's yet.
I think those were pre dual pixel, the rumoured 90MP would be 180MP if you could both sides, which is getting fairly close to that.I wonder what happened to the 120 megapixel (and 250 Megapixel) sensor. I know, APS-H, but the 5Ds line had the full 50 megapixel of the prototype APS-H.
Because starting with the R5, Canon is scaling from 8k or quad binning or line skipping (depending on mode) . The R5 uses the full width of the sensor for 4k DCI and even in crop mode, it does 5:4 scaling. If the RS uses a similar 8k pixel width, with twice the pixels total, then the crop would be sqrt@ or 1.414. Not to say they won't do something different now that they have the scaling power in digicx, but they already have the firmware to do that.How do you come up with a crop of 1.4 on a 90mp sensor without oversampling? EOS R has a crop of almost 1.8 on a 30mp for 4K
I'd say take the video right out of it just to see EOSHD lose his mind that a stills camera was developed without videoSpeaking as someone who primarily shoots landscapes, this would be HUGE. They could take video capabilities out of the camera for all I care. This would be my primary photography camera.
Roger's thermal measurements at Lens Rentals permanently blow EOSHD's cripple theory out the window. Yes, the camera does get hot when you are shooting a processing 8k! What a surprise.The latter isn't true enough--he has entirely too many people who find him credible.
I don't take Northrups seriously.Are full-frame sensors really this expensive, then? Because from the spec speculation both here and on Tony Northrup’s video it seems to boil down to “what if a camera that’s worse in megapixels, frame rate and video options than an old 750D, with no viewfinder at all, and people will give us a THOUSAND DOLLARS for it because they desperately want the full frame RF mount.”
