The title does a really good job of making you want to click on the link. To then let you down tremendously when you actually read that it doesn't do 4K video at a useful frame rate.
I think I would rather it not have 4K video at all than have 4K @ 15 FPS. I wouldn't want to ever accidentally record anything at 15 FPS.
Finally Canon is back in the game. This is a camera that offers features that almost no other camera has like 4K @ 60 FPS video. Now I just hope that this continues with their lower price models.
This is a good day for Canon.
nicolaiecostel: How many of you guys actually have 4k monitors ?
I only have Three. A 50 inch, a 55 inch, and the Mighty 80 inch.
The most important thing is how much do they cost. If they are charging $1000 per card then they might as well not exist at all.
For anyone asking for anything greater than 4:2:0 can you show me a real world example where 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 has a distinguishable difference from 4:2:0 for video?
Don't even bother showing me a test chart. I want real world examples.
The more important spec is that it has to conform to BT.2020 color representation. There are some cameras that do 10 bit right now. However, I am not aware of any cameras that can record according to BT.2020 color representation at the moment.
Can I just go ahead and put my GoPro 5 order in right now?
"and supports DSLR quality photography"
So you are saying it can achieve the shallow depth of field of an A-PSC or Full Frame sensor? I seriously doubt that if a drone is going to carry it.
Eric Calabros: and my TV can't even play 60p 4k
Get a new TV.
This thing could be a real time astro photographers dream.
I compared the specs for the Canon 7D MKII to the Nikon D500 side by side. The only thing in the specs that the D500 didn’t have or was better than the 7D MKII in was that the D500 lacks a built-in flash. Every other, single thing, on that list the D500 was equal or better than the 7D MKII.
The Canon 7D MKII costs considerably less than the D500 but it really does look like the D500 dominates it in every single area according to the specs.
What I would like to know from Canon users is what is not in the spec lists that the Canon 7D MKII excels at over the D500? There must be something that it can do better other than having a built in flash.
I guess the more important question is “What is Canon going to do next to best the D500?”. It seems unlikely that they are going to exceed these specs in the near future.
mpgxsvcd: Just tell me what the cost is. That is the main thing I want to know.
I am just hoping they don't say something silly like $8000. However, they aren't Canon so that probably won't happen.
The SX540 would make a very good lunar camera. The 1080p @ 60 FPS mode would work well for stacking images of the moon to reduce the ripple effect from atmospheric changes.
Just tell me what the cost is. That is the main thing I want to know.
Canon is watching with Envy.
"25-30 frames of action in a row and the are all in focus".
That is really easy to do in AFS mode when the subject is in a confined space like on a balance beam. If you are using AFC there then you should probably switch to AFS.
mpgxsvcd: A 20 megapixel 1/2.3" sensor with an F3.6 - F7.0 lens? Has Canon ever heard of the term diffraction?
Then why in the world would they produce a camera like that and ask people to pay money for it?
