JimPearce: Wow! Captive animals and baiting in one video.

They could have used house cats instead or perhaps the Family dog. Would that have been more interesting?

SmilerGrogan: Love the new format. But in my opinion the level of viewer service would be much higher if you shot each of these videos ONLY with the camera under review. It gets confusing to try to guess which footage is which (unless you want to go through and label each scene with the camera on which it was shot). Thanks again for trying something new. Bravo.

"It gets confusing to try to guess which footage is which (unless you want to go through and label each scene with the camera on which it was shot)"

They did exactly that. You can assume that it was shot with the C300 if it wasn't labeled specifically as 7D MKII footage I believe.

mpgxsvcd: Everyone thinks that youtube is always the culprit for compression. In this case it wasn't. This video wasn't rendered to a high enough bit rate or resolution. That was probably because it was so long and would have taken forever to upload.

To still shooters the compression probably was just something they tend to accept. For someone who knows that Youtube doesn't have to have compression artifacts it was very distracting.

Scaling this video to 1440p or 4K would cause YouTube to allocate a much higher bit rate to the video. 4K is actually easier to compress than 1080p @ 60 FPS would be. Therefore, up-scaling this video probably would have produced a much cleaner result.

Yes that is what I am suggesting. It won't improve the resolution of 1080p video. However, YouTube automatically allocates more bandwidth to it. That extra Bandwidth can actually improve the compression artifacts even though the resolution is greater.

It is easier to compress 4K resolution with IPB codecs. Most people just assume that all YoutTube compression is bad. However, they probably have not uploaded 1440p or 4K video before.

mpgxsvcd: I would love to see this type of video done with a Panasonic GH4. People would be surprised at how close Micro Four Thirds has gotten to Canon's A-PSC offerings.

Great. These types of videos really demonstrate the cameras capabilities in the real world and teach us about techniques that we haven't realized before.

I absolutely loved the content of this video.

Was the entire video shot with the 7D MKII or just the clips that said they were shot with the 7D MKII?

While I was very impressed with the 7D MKII's still shooting capabilities I was not at all impressed with its video capabilities. Great AF is pointless when you have 1080p video that looks more like 720p video with terrible dynamic range and lot's of compression artifacts.

Looks like a cool camera. You can't compete against the GoPro marketing juggernaut though.

mpgxsvcd: This camera doesn't look so great now with the FZ100 and the LX100 for wide angle stuff. I hope Olympus makes a fixed lens 4/3s camera.

Unique Features. Like What? It takes pictures and videos?

What would you say if someone rolled up next to you with that? “Excuse me could you turn that down a bit”?

What is worse? Canon trying to hide the fact that their cameras are just last year’s models with a new name? Or these cameras that don’t pretend to take better pictures than the regular cameras but they will Definitely Stand Out which is all they were designed for.

It is "Fabulous" with it though.
