"DSLRs can capture the moment better than mirrorless, because you're viewing directly, not through an LCD."
He should look into the 1D C viewfinder when shooting a 4K video and see why using an OVF on that camera was a big mistake. The Panasonic GH4 is going to kill the 1D C.
mpgxsvcd: For $29000 it better be the best. Everything else is 1/3 the price.
Where could you get a 6K camera for 1/3 the price with the same specs ?ACQUISITION FORMATS

RED EPIC DRAGON - IT'S THE REAL DEAL !http://vimeo.com/71666317
The Red Epic Dragon is the enemy to the $20,000 Canon C500.
Push the envelope ? So be the first with 4K @60fps and UHS-II support.
Jogger: lmao at all the butt-hurt mirrorless evangelicals. the fact is that none of the mirrorless offerings would be able to command a $6000 asking price for a body-only camera.
Jogger, did you take a stupid pill before YOU posted that ?
No optical image stabilization in 4K is a showstopper IMHO.
halc: It may shoot 4K, but the chip+optics is great if it resolves more than 600 lines vertical.
So much for specsmanship...
It will resolve better than 600 lines vertical if it's like the Note 3 4K.
Marty4650: A dream job, if ever there was one for a photo enthusiast.
And he actually gets paid to do it!
Working by himself in the basement for 31 years a dream job ? I think I would rather be outside on location shooting the NG images for 31 years instead.
Serious Sam: For people who have always been using Extreme pro SD card, the speed with Eye-fi is just unbearable. Here in Sydney I can buy an 32G Extreme pro for A$80 and a Kingston MobileLite Wireless Flash Reader for A$50. Total A$130.....exactly how much Ey-fi ProX2 16G is selling. The kingston only require me to take my card out of the camera, I can live with that.
The Ey-fi mobi sells for about A$50 which is same price as the MobileLite Wireless Flash Reader. Yes you have to pay about A$10 for an class 10 card, but there is one thing the MobileLite Wireless Flash Reader can do is back up to a USB key.
Unless Eye-fi bring out a version equal the speed of Extreme pro and price it at the Pro x2 leve(not going to happen)l, I will give them a pass.
Warning: Kingston Digital MobileLite Wireless Flash Reader can destroy SD card FAT!http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52052016
I hate watching 2160p videos on my 30" 1600p monitors in 1080p on youtube when it cost nothing to upload in 2160p like this one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gdhJwfSJWk
eyefuse: The 4K is a "joke" ... 12FPS isn't usable video - but at least they can put the 4K sticker on the package and keep marketing.
1080p 60fps, on the otherhand is excellent!
Unfortunately I just updated my hero2 to a hero3 last summer.. just before this 3+ version came out... so none of my battery/lcd/case parts will fit this new one.
Let's wait for the 4 - with 4K @ 25fps... :)
4K @60fps with Micro UHS-II speed class 3 SDXC support and OIS would be great. BTW LG is coming with a 4K smartphone with OIS.http://connect.dpreview.com/post/3185592421/lg-launches-lg-g-pro-phablet-with-4k-video
I wonder if it has the new UHS-II Micro SDXC ( up to 312MB/s) support . 4K @ 60fps would be fantastic.http://www.photographybay.com/2014/02/12/sandisks-new-extreme-pro-sd-uhs-ii-cards-are-worlds-fastest-sd-cards/
Smart business move by Canon to come out with a four year old entry level DSLR with new T5 name so clueless consumers will eat it up at Costco etc.
Andreas Stuebs: Fantastic! Is the Company a subsidary of the NSA? What better way to open up your PC to the Internet.
Watch out for the black helicopters.
chida: They should make mounts for Nikon and other lenses. Filmmakers like myself who have plenty of Nikon lenses, can use them on Blackmagic, and their marketshare also increases!
If this had an E mount like the Sony FS700, A7r, VG900 etc that work with any DSLR lens it would have much more demand. The GH4 works with even more lenses since it also works with m4/3rd lenses along with any DSLR lens.
Photato: There you go! Now we are talking.A video tool done the professional way.Would be nice if it also can take still pictures.Also,a choice of non standard resolutions and frame rates. Not everybody in making 16:9 broadcast complaint video...
The GH4 looks like a toy next to this one.
The photo above looks like a lens sticking out of a toaster,
mpgxsvcd: Whoever does the first GH4 vs. BM 4K camera shootout is going to get a lot of attention.
The GH4 works with any lens made including Canon FD mount and the BMC 4K works only with Canon EF mount. So unless you already have Canon EF lenses the GH4 looks like the winner in my book.
Jogger: Much much better option than the Pana GH4 where you need an ext recorder to get prores. The only thing missing is 12V power and XLR input, but, the GH4 doesnt have that either.
No cinema 4K 4096x2160 or OLED EVF like the GH4.
wherearemyshorts: hopefully the price will be a lot less than the 5d mark 3
You mean 1D C not 5D MK III since the GH4 shoots 4096x2160 Cinema 4K just like the EOS 1D C . The 5D MKIII does not even shoot 1080p60 .
