Not a hologram. Holograms are laser-based.
Anyone or company using technical terms incorrectly should be called out. Otherwise we end up with bullshit like "LED" TVs.
AMEN. Canon is so far out in the weeds, and has been FOR YEARS, it's pathetic. Their product line is a mess.
They need a major management housecleaning, and to hire people who know something about motion pictures. Only with the C200 does it even look like they're trying to compete, and it remains to be seen if that camera is made viable by the promised firmware update that may give it a decent non-raw codec (since it'll ship with low-bitrate, 8-bit, 4:2:0, GOP-based junk as its only non-raw option).
Fortunately lots of manufacturers are adopting the EF mount, so our investment in Canon lenses isn't lost.
As far is this site is concerned, it's telling everyone to GO AWAY, by blasting readers with NOISE-MAKING, AUTO-PLAYING SHIT. There is no excuse for disturbing our coworkers, waking our companions, or otherwise disrupting our space with UNAUTHORIZED NOISE.
Up yours, No Film School.
This is off-base for a couple of reasons.
You're right that Canon is still troweling out junk codecs and overpriced/underpowered cameras.
But your assertions about 4K are not true. 4K gives you the ability to recompose in post without suffering noticeable resolution loss when you're delivering in HD. That can save your ass if you're on a single-camera/single-take shoot and need to mix up your shots or even add fake camera moves in post to keep the viewer interested.
Not to mention that you could theoretically mitigate the effects of Canon's crap-ass color sampling and codec by downscaling from 4K to HD.
WTF, who decided it was OK to put NOISE-MAKING, AUTO-PLAYING SHIT on this site?
They cried about a camera?
"If you've got a waterproof camera"
Well, duh. A more useful article would show us how to do it WITHOUT a waterproof camera.
Not that it doesn't look cool.
