I don't think it's wrong for Canon to put all their efforts into making this one of the best cameras for photography. If they start taking out photography tech and replacing it with video tech they are going to start loosing int he photography world which is a diversion from where their main market is.
That said, I wish they would create some sort of 5D-Cinema camera that is stripped of it's photography specs and has a focus on video with photography as it's secondary function. This is probably too much to ask. They had the right idea with the 1DC but it's based off of the wrong camera line and thus way too expensive.
Keep calm and carry on. England is known for overcoming the odds.
Much of this doomsday talk is fueled by uncertainty. Just because you're lost at sea doesn't mean you're sinking. Certain named institutions and organizations might have to adapt in order to survive but that's always the nature of change.
If I had a 85" 4K TV with a ear destroying audio system I would probably pay the $50 and host friends/family to watch the movie. So basically, all I need is a $15000 theater setup. If I had that kind of money the $50 wouldn't be an issue. The idea appeals to me, the reality doesn't.
I would love to see them come out with a module that allows the user to hot swap the battery out. Movcam has created something like this but I've yet to see a price or where to even buy it:
Very true. Still though, it is interesting to see them in real run and gun situations. For many of us that might actually constitute as a "proper" test.
The colors seem a bit weird to me. As if an Osiris LUT was applied to everything. I'm not a fan of that particular look but I know many people are.
