On article Canon EOS-1D C sees $4000 price drop in North America (250 comments in total)

Well, everybody says that the only differences between the 1D C and the 1D X are the heatsink (nobody knows how expensive it really is) and the firmware "lock out".

But you have to see that you get two professional tools: A high end DSLR and a high end* movie camera instead of consumer ware like the competition. Except the FS7. And how much does the latter cost? 8K like the 1D C. And does it have a pro sports DSLR included? No. So this way the Sony is overpriced.

*Everybody seems to forget that the 1D C is not limited to record up until 29 Minutes and 59 Seconds. It does NOT have this limitation. Without this barrier, it has to cost significantly more due to higher taxes (I don't know the details here, but removing this limitation costs a lot of money).

So, all the other cameras that "compete" with the Canon 1D C have this limitation, making way for a much lower price. If the 1D C also had it, Canon could offer it at a price close to whatever the 1D X costs at any give time.

Gaff Multimedia: Wel..canon wit their prizes..i wil just get markiii den use magic lantern to make it to shoot 4k

Keep dreaming. Not possible to turn a 1D X into a camera with 4K 24fps, even less with an older one (Mark III).

mpgxsvcd: We don’t even have a large array of 8K still cameras at the moment. Why are we even talking about 8K video? It won’t happen for at least a decade simply because we don’t have the bandwidth and consumer displays to take advantage of that. Let alone the computer power to process and render 8K in a reasonable amount of time.

4K is barely gaining traction right now. 4K Blu-ray has been delayed considerably. What makes them think 8K is going to be any different?

Right now what we really need is 4K @ 24 FPS 10 bit Losslessly Compressed RAW video. Just someone please give us that so that HDR can get off the ground.

As does the Arri 65. Only 6K.

Pascal Parvex: What was the initial price of this camera?

Thank you. That's Cheap. As far as I know, the six Megapixel Kodak from 1994/1995 was $50,000...

And I am here because we seem to once have had the Nikon D50 as work camera; now it is the D90, but it seldom gets used, as we have Canon cameras ourselfes.

KariIceland: I wish you guys would do a new comparison with the 5D, would love to see it vs the newer dslr's

I don't know what you mean. I own the 5D since 2006 and have cleaned the sensor only once.

JSnees: I am using a nikkon D 5100. Have the opportunity to purchase a cannon eos 5d in excellent condition for $500 with 50mm f1.8 lens. Any advantages to this camera vs what I currently have besides FF? Good investment? I currently do not own any pro lenses from nikkon.

Well, that is a great deal. I would do it.

Femthang: Hello i just need a professional opinion....is the Canon 5D Mark III suitable for broadcast?

No one has answered, so here is an non-professional opinion: Should be. Since the Mark II, the 5D series has gotten some heavy use in broadcasting.

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1 Review (7 comments in total)

Had this camera before I bought my first DSLR, the 5D Classic. It is a capable camera, the first time I bought a Sony, as Canon did not have something comparable. I shot two Tokio Hotel concerts with this one, some pictures with 3200 ISO that turned out usable. Just the red tones are a little bit too speckled. Bought a DSLR afterwards because the R1 is quite slow.

Bought this version (Rebel XT) for about $350 two years ago, refurbished. Still works well and has a good image quality.
