Don't reward this gimped junk with your money. Seriously, stand up for better. Canon continues to insult its customers with this kind of crap.
The only thing saving Canon now is the EF mount.
Then you haven't been paying attention to Canon this past decade.
Not exciting. DISHEARTENING. Canon is still flailing in the weeds, launching idiotic products.
"Vloggers?" Who need 4K? WTF, that is asinine.
And the so called "4K" is gathered by what, a GoPro-sized snippet of the sensor? In 2018, are you kidding? Pitiful.
Then take a look at these bitrates. WTF, why can we shoot 4K at 120 Mbps, but not HD at that bitrate? And why can we shoot 50 FPS HD at 60 Mbps, but not 24 FPS HD at that rate? This is the same stupid mistake camera vendors have been making year after year after year, but even worse than usual. In this case, you can only use the good autofocus mode in HD, so what does Canon do? Reduce the bitrate to dogshit in HD.
These data rates are even more of a joke considering the crop, which is saving a ton of processing time.
Canon desperately needs management housecleaning, and has for a long time. Their product line is embarrassing.
Sadly, the article's assertions about the lenses are not correct. Yes, you can SORT OF adapt EF lenses to other platforms, but with heavily crippled functionality. Read the reviews on EF-to-E adapters, for example. Crappy at best, which is sad because Sony makes interesting cameras with a crap-ass lens lineup.
I don't think that's the point here.
The point is that this is such a POS that it doesn't have the processing power to downscale the image; even with Canon's trademark shitty line-skipping, apparently.
Not a cine lens, and Rokinon/Samyang has a history of making shitty lenses.
It's just "raw," not "RAW." It's not an acronym.
