On article Striding Forth: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Review (2157 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dweb823: Looking to upgrade to Mark iv after long usage of workhorse 7D. One problem with that camera when shooting video was audio mike attenuation ....when conversation or scene noise stopped or lowered, the background hiss would noticeably increase. Had to get around that by feeding camera audio through a BeachTek box.

Is this still a problem in the 5D family?

Set the mic-gain to manual. Set for the highest pitched audio you gonna record, and you don't get the hiss when volume lowers. Use another microphone than the inbuild, as it picks up the IS and the handeling noice.

Michael Ma: Anyone pay for the C-Log upgrade? I'm curious to see how it looks.

I will get the upgrade as a part of the price i payed for the camera earlier this week. I have a C100 mk. II allready (with an Atomos recorder), so it will match the footage from that. I will primarily use the 5D4 as B-cam for the C100 and mostly use 1080 (where i don't know if the c-log will work), and as a great stills camera.
I upgraded from a 5D2 - skipping the 5D3. The 1080 out of the 5D4 is so much cleaner than what i've seen from the 5D3. And i can use a (now pretty cheap) Atomos to get 4.2.2 in 1080 - 8bit (i know) as my C100 II.

Tactical Falcon: I was wondering about this. $3000.00 seems steep for this kind of camera. Sony and Panasonic are making more sense to me if I go 4K video.

Made by a 3 man crew, Cameraoperator, focuspuller and a guy to carry the extra batterys. That's the idea behind XC10/15, you don't need those extra persons, you can do it as a one-man band.

What does other cameras look like?
Have you ever had it in you hand, or have you just read about it?

In reply to:

wvdweerd: More than a year after this preview there is stll no real review?!?

srados

Yes, just see this review, where they compare a constant f-stop lens with a Nikon with a variable f-stop (3.5-4.5) and without the macro capability. Dosen't make any sense to me. Sure the Nikon kit-lens is cheaper due to lack of functions and quality.

Francis Sawyer: Let us guess: STILL no intervalometer for time-lapse.

Still no mirror lockup for an arbitrary number of shots.

Still no real downscaling of video to HD size.

Still no decent video codec and bitrate.

Still no clean HDMI out.

Canon: still way out in the weeds. Its management should be fired and replaced with a crew that knows something about photography and video.

Intervalometer - YES, it have this feature.

Clean HDMI out - no, you have to buy at least a 7D II or 5D III for this to happen, or wait for Magic Lantern to fix it :-)

On article SanDisk offers 'world's first' 256GB CompactFlash card (70 comments in total)
In reply to:

MrTaikitso: For the last 25 years or more, I have logged every purchase I have ever made, from a bus ride to a computer or car. Recently found the details for an 8MB Sony MemoryStick that I purchased in 2001. That's eight megabytes. Price? £90 or so. (About $140.)

Today, that would get you a tad more memory in the Gigabyte range. We're talking a 1000 or more fold increase in performance to price ratio. That 256GB Sandisk card should be at the most £25 in 10 years, although I think it may be a lot sooner.

(Ironic, the price of that 8MB MemoryStick would buy you an entry level point and shoot today with a 2G SD card on the side!)

Still remember my first digital camera. A Nikon Coolpix 950. 1,9 mpix, and it costed me 9995 danish kroner - 1340 €, 1790 $ or 1123 £. And then the CF-card 2995 danish kroner - 401 €, 337 £ or 536 $ - the biggest and the best, 128 megabytes (not gigabytes).

Still got it, of nostalgic reasons - and still works on AA-batteries :-)

More expensive than my brand new Canon EOS 70D with 128 gigabytes of memorycards - so it's a lot cheaper today to be on the beat - and we still complain.

On article Canon acknowledges 'light leak' in the EOS 5D Mark III (257 comments in total)

A lot of people obviosly bought a camera they in reality couldn't afford. I've seen a lot of the "affected" people wanting Canon to cut $1000 off the price.

The problem also exists on some 5D2 and on my 60D, and has never been a problem. It exists on several Nikon's too if you test by shooting the inside of a lenscap at ISO 800 or above. Lokk it up on Vimeo or Youtube.

I'm still in the market for a 5D3 when it hits the retailers shelfs here in Denmark.

Henrik NJ: I'm excited to see what will happen to the rest of EU.

In Denmark D800 is listed at DKR 17995 - 18745 = UKP 2023 - 2108
In Sweden D800 is listed at SEK 24990 = UKP 2341
In Germany D800 is listed at €2899 = UKP 2424

It can't only be in the UK they have made a "mistake" on the price if that's their excuse, it will be in the whole EU.

You're absolutely right about the high danish taxes and moms (like vat). We pay about 180% on cars !!!! The prices in Denmark is including moms, and there is no extra tax on still-cameras (under 30 min video-recording). Unlike many other things, cameras have always been cheap (not cheap enough) in Denmark compared to other EU-states.
