I'm a DP and Producer in Minneapolis Minnesota.
An anonymous source of mine said it is on the roadmap as well - but it won't roll out for another 12 years.
Awesome to see Canon isn't giving up completely. Even if they're at the back of the pack with the whole 4k race...
Props to Canon for jumping on the hype-train though! For the millions of dollars they spend on promotion, simply saying it's "on the roadmap" they can bring attention back to Canon which more than makes up the salary of whatever employee came up with this press release idea.
When Canon can't even do full-frame 4k because of processing power or overheating (or protecting their higher end product line?). When they can't even autofocus with slow motion... Why would someone take this seriously?
PS. I love canon colors and own multiple canon cameras along with Black Magic, Panasonic, and Sony. They are all great tools - but this "hype" is hilarious to get a similar shout out to Sharp.
The 360 is a big issue if you're using a follow focus system.
Interesting to see cards like SanDisk Ultra 80MB/s in real life hit 15.0 MB/s.
Definitely wouldn't hold up in higher bitrate video cameras like the GH5 or bmpcc4k
I thought Lexar memory cards were discontinued?
It would be great with the new Black Magic Pocket Cinema 4k which eats memory card space like popcorn.
Plus - larger cards should push down the prices eventually. Right?
Do you have any suggestion for PC users as EditReady says they will never release a windows version?
I had a full size Ronin and sold it - I now have a Crane 2 (which I LOVE) but I do miss the Ronin's ability to handle larger cameras.
Pros of the Ronin:
- works with the GH5 for focus!
Pros of the Crane 2:
- light enough to hold it for long periods of time
Both come with the tripod base and all day battery.
Crane 2 comes with a nice carrying case that fits everything - I throw it in my checked luggage on travel shoots.
