On article Canon EOS 5D Mark IV First Impressions Review (1042 comments in total)

Dual pixel technology ever advancing could be used by Canon to dominate both photography and video. But instead they cripple the Mark iV. It would NOT compete with the C line but enhance it and serve as a complete line making it your B camera along with the C line small form factor. And the C line still is too expensive to have full 4K. I have a C100 Mark ii which I find a great workhorse but give me a C100 mark iii with 4k not not a million dollars to own. And the Mark iv with HDMI 4K out and c log for god sakes. As a photography camera it looks splendid.

Equal as video camera as photography?????????? oh my god not, no HDMI 4K, no log, no useful compression, no peaking nor zebras, strange limits on type of frame rates, giant crop poor audio out. Canon makes a mistake thinking that it will compete with the cinema line it would enhance it as a B camera to the C line. Canon with its advancing dual pixel sensor system could IMHO dominate both photography and video if they just realized it.

Tiderace: The two killer features are the dual pixel raw and the dual pixel face detection with touch screen and AF button,

It promises massive focus ability, refinement in post and combining the two images together for an even higher resolution DNG. These features could give massive improvement in picture quality dynamic range and ability to post process without degrading.

with you Fred. and looks like no HDMI 4K out either no Canon log. Crikes mate

Horrible if true NO 4K HDMI ProRes 422 output!!!!!!!!!! OMG this is a killer. Why? This camera has huge potential for me as both a pro photographer and videographer of weddings. I need that HDMI output or I have to buy a million 128 gig cards to shoot 4K. And ProRes is great for grading and post processing in the computer. Crikes I also wish for Canon log as in the c100 mark ii which i love

I n a double blind consumer test can anyone tell the difference between the two cameras using a diverse set of locations lighting dynamic range and subject? I wonder. Perhaps even the most sophisticated clients will think they see one better than the other but when a double blind study is used I bet they cannot.

This means both companies have pretty much built the best mousetrap needed and do not need to progress further in image quality. Only in usability and features.

On article Taking it easy: Canon EOS 80D shooting experience (294 comments in total)

It is ok for the small niche they are marketing it for. For pros like us who want it for photography and video, I find it not worth it. We use the 70D for gimbal work and that is wonderful except in low light.

But the deliberate crippling of it with no HDMI clean PRORES & audio out for external recording is a deal breaker for us.

I think it is worth saying, write to Google, tell them there IS A MARKET for this product both for professionals and amateur photographers. These products are amazing. And they could easily be made to work for people with less knowledge, they are that easy to learn and work with. Seriously!

And for professionals, if they kept innovating with these sky is the limit we feel. 25 years as professionals we find they not only are indispensable but help us to grow creatively!

Glen Barrington: I downloaded the NIK tools last night. I hadn't used them before and was surprised at how unmoved by them, I was. I was expecting to be blown away, I guess I'm a victim of the hype. The NIK tools have taken on this cult like status ever since Google bought them, but I'm not sure they are any better than similar Topaz or OnOne toolsets.

And frankly, many of the native tools found in the ACDSee toolset make more sense and offer a much better editing/development experience than the NIK tools. For instance, I would hate to give up Pixel targeting and Light EQ in favor of Viveza. I also found them slow compared to Topaz plugins (which aren't exactly speed demons themselves)

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they're free, and I won't uninstall them, its better to have tools you don't need than to need tools you don't have. On the whole, It was a nice gesture on Google's part. Clearly they don't see much of a future for NIK. but I think compared to other toolsets, NIK is showing its age a bit.

Glenn, yes at first they look unimpressive. We are professional art, wedding, and portrait photographers for over 25 years and found that after learning more about NIK they are beyond belief in innovative quality and blazingly fast to use. Head and shoulders above other products even though not updated for awhile now.
You see NIK was developed by crazy imaginative engineers and professional photographers who created the most imaginative ways to integrate their film background into digital photography. Do yourself a favor and learn more about them and trust us they are not hyped. We still find them invaluable and they open our eyes and minds to constantly growing in our creativity.

I say I get decent wonderful results with my iPhone 6s and my Moondog anamorphic nuff said. 4K stabilized pay attention to good lighting and composition and proper highlight shadow exposure. Don't find the need for 6000 dollar lens

OK so Canon has deliberately crippled yet another camera with no HDMI clean out! We have both a professional photography and videography business and have used Canon exclusively for over 25 years. NO MORE DONE.

Not to beat t dead Canon, I mean horse, but does it have or not clean HDMI out? likely not, but if Dpreview knows or anyone for sure please post. 70D is crippled.

Is it cripple or not folks I cannot tell. Does it have Clean HDMI out, i.e., 422 8 bit with audio or only 420 or nothing like the 70D

So is it Crippled or NOT? HDMI CLEAN 422 8 bit out? or less or nothing? with audio or not? only highly compressed 420 H.264 I and A? what is the story

S.O.N.Y. Soon Only Newest Yes to everything wonderful in the world of both photography and videography. They are just crushing it. Vertical integration, innovation, nose close to the customer, fix mistakes and improve. They have learned to listen unlike the others. And they are just getting started it seems. This is yet another indication of another area of innovation that can integrate with how people are using cameras. Soon they will have 9 miniature lenses like this on your smartphone all computer integrated to make a low light high resolution high dynamic range image that will just blow us away. I see it coming. Look out Sony is really in there 130%

OMG HDMI out is limited to 1080P are they kidding! Wow! Holy lets change to Sony Batman. We are life long Canon folks. Hello Sony. Both for photography and videography they integrate everything and make it all possible. Not Canon. I simply am disgusted by this deliberate handicapping of the DSLR to separate them from the cinema line. Awful! 422 8 bit 1080P only good grief. GH4 at 1600$ has 10 bit 422 4K out.

Totally saddened by dumbing down of this camera by 8 bit 422 out and no log. Very sad.

solarsky: Is the video 10-bit 4K MJPEG with C-Log OR WHAT?!

nope 8 bit 422 only no log and cinestyle or neutral settings are not the equivalent of actual log settings

ONLY 8 BIT 422 HDMI out folks and no LOG! wow! For me Canon shoots themselves in the foot with separating their DSLR cameras from their cinema line this way. We are BOTH high end professional photographers and videographers. We will NOT buy this camera for this reason. We absolutely love the dual pixel focusing and many aspects of Canon image quality but this is a show stopper for us with this camera. We await the 5D Mark IV and see how limited that one is. It may be time to move to Sony for us. We are seriously considering it.

If I may, I read further and saw that they are only claiming a hardness factor. This may explain the test type. A test that has the ring supported by the edge of the filter and not the center may fail easily if the material is only harder but not elastic.
