  • David 247, so you are saying just because iPhone does not do 4K you are making the assumption that it can't be done right. I guess you haven't seen 4K footage from the Galaxy Note 4 (it blows even...

  • Apple users think that there are no benefits of 4K video because everyone still uses 1080p monitors. This in a nutshell is the mentality of die hard Apple users today. They can see things like...

  • Is this a prosumer camera for someone who is or has gone gung-ho on the EF-S line? Or is it for the small niche of sport photographers? I bet the majority of the users are the former. If it's...

  • No internal 4K or 10+ bit or 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 1080p . Maybe Canon thinks that "silly little enthusiast filmmakers" do not know what these terms mean.

  • Because 4K video looks lightyears better on a 1080p monitor. It is because of the codecs. There are no consumer codecs that will store individual 1920 x 1080 pixels for each frame. However,...

  • Some people think that when you have a stylus, you have to use it ALL THE TIME instead of your finger. I think that's why some people have such a hard time understanding it's purpose. For 20...

  • That's one dirty iPhone.

  • The stylus by Adobe has an annoying lag that makes the experience feel very disconnected on the iPad. Adobe's products would be perfect for any devices (Android or iOS) if they had a dedicated...

  • SSD's are about 5-6x faster than the most expensive insanely expensive SD/Compact Flash cards. Samsung makes ultra low power SSDs for a good price. Black Magic Designs puts SSD's in their cameras...

  • SSD's are about 5-6x faster than the fastest and insanely expensive SD/Compact Flash cards. Samsung makes ultra low power SSDs for a good price. Black Magic Designs puts SSD's in their cameras...

  • looks like Samsung knows that cameras should know how to focus:

  • I agree with Stephan. If they're gonna spend, 10's, maybe 100's of millions of dollars on R&D, manufacturing, and marketing on a camera, they probably have a camera that can focus? Not sure why...

  • Oops, I meant, good first camera. I mixed "not a bad first gen" and "good first try" together and ended up saying something completely different.

  • So seeing that consumer products have been doing 4K video now for at least a year (smartphones being the first), we can safely say Canon chose to not include 4K on purpose. Good move Canon?

  • The design of RED cameras are a little over the top. I guess the guy that gets the job is the guy with the most number of wires and carbon fiber on his camera.

  • I was hoping they put their Samsung SSD's in here somehow and gave us raw 4K video recording out of the box. They could have really made the huge dent in the entire film making industry. But...

  • Looking forward to the samples! Kudos for the interesting videography features.

  • I waited for this camera pretty much daily for 3 years. Since then, my hobby has expanded to both photography and videography and it would have been awesome to see the high bitrate raw recording...

  • 99000 pounds. Sounds about right.

  • Nice...this is something new that looks very useful.

    Only for fast-forward (time lapse) effects though
