Demmos: Any word on the HDMI... will it stream an uncompressed full HD signal directly out of the camera via the HDMI port like the D800?

Is it? I can't find it, could you post a quotation?

Okay, they don't want us to capture uncompressed HD, but what about MONITORING?! [sigh]

Finally! Nice welcome upgrades in many points, SDXC cards (yess!!!), Digic5 is a miracle! I'm selling my kidney and buying one ASAP!!! =)

On Canon EOS C300 launch: Interview with Larry Thorpe article (39 comments in total)

getman: thanx for the interview.
"It is a very different product, yes." - mostly by the price tag to me.
1080 30p @50Mbps is done by 5DM2 - no key upgrades to cost $20k.

I thought latitude has something to do with sensor and data processing rather than encoding algorithm and bitrate.

larrytusaz: Price aside, this here is exhibit A in why d-SLRs shouldn't have video. Cameras like this prove it: the equipment for video already exists, with large sensors mind you, & we photographers would like our still imaging devices left ALONE. You don't hear me complaining about how this thing apparently can't take good photos, or that the ergonomics of it don't suit that task. What business is that of mine? This device is for VIDEO & I respect that boundary, if only videographers would understand the same thing per our d-SLRs.

I applaud this. I don't advocate that Canon can't make good video cameras & still cameras, and printers too, but a device should know its place & STAY there. I buy d-SLRs for images, not YouTube clips.

Why are still photographers so disturbed by video capability of their still tools? Is the movie menu tab such a hinder?... I can't get it, really.
Still and motion photography should not have a "boundary" between them, either in technical tools or the creative heads. I hope there will never be one.

getman: So, if compared to what 5DM2 has been offering for years, what do we get for the extra ~$17.5k? (only to speak of really important options) Some more ISO, HD-SDI output, some "rolling shutter reduction", built-in ND's and PL mount option? Did I miss something?

I've listed ND's, PL mount option, and video sensor as rolling shutter reduction. Is heat really a problem on 5DM2? Not to me. Dual CF's? Hardly imagine when I would really need the option. My point is, there are NO real features (like rapid fps, RAW video etc.) to pay this much money for.

johnparas11zenfoliodotcom: I thought motion jpeg type videos are not efficient type of file? Please enlighten me.. I read that from the olympus e-pl2 full review here on dpr.

MJpeg, AVC or h.264 - all depends on the bitrate. h.264 is best in quality per Mbps but is tougher for editing on slower machines (although with Cuda support one hardly can have complaints).

cheddargav: 2 things:
1, Isn't this site called DPReview, not DVReview?
2, I can't say they've helped ease my concerns that they care more about video than photography. Sony and Nikon seem to care more about my needs tbh, perhaps they deserve my money more...

How do Nikon and Sonycare more about your needs? And what's wrong with the new 1Dx?

Ashley Pomeroy: Coo - but is that 35mm full-frame, or another format?

2 abortabort: it cannot be wider than FF still sensors and use the same lenses, so as said above, it should be roughly the same width but not as tall

C300 is 1080p output... because:

3840 x 2160 = 8,294,400 or 8.3MP
R=1920x1080
G=1920x1080
B=1920x1080

and FF 1D X... whazzat other dSLR shown beside the C300???
why the 'Red C'... 1D X renamed 1D C... or instead 5DMkIII dubbed 5D C?

so far... this is what 1D X video looks like:
notice low light situation... just in case folks don't 'get it'...
http://cweb.canon.jp/camera/eosd/eosmovie/index.html

guess it's because there are two arrays of G1920*1080 which gives the +2Mp
