Yes, if it's glossy, that's asinine.
This glossy fad is the most ridiculous regression in the history of consumer electronics.
Good luck keeping things in focus with a full-frame sensor.
It's a nice option, but lots of noobs don't realize that 35mm motion-picture cameras run the film VERTICALLY, making APS-sized sensors the cinematic choice.
Looks like digital-only though. There's no print option.
How can Canon remain so clueless year after year? It's as if there are no photographers OR cinematographers on staff (or retainer) there.
This goes back to the original 5D, which stunned the community by not offering 24P. That is just brain-dead. And they continue to trowel out crappy decisions in the form of cameras with sub-par resolution and (more importantly) garbage codecs and paltry bitrates. Interframe-compressed crap with decimated color resolution is not going to cut it. Not when BlackMagic is selling 4K lossless for $3K. Canon's not even offering anything as good as ProRes. That's pathetic.
The sad fact is that Canon could've owned a large part of this market. When Red was inventing the real-digital-cinema-camera market, they weren't worried about Sony or Arri or Nikon; they were worried about Canon. And when Canon showed its cards... they were a joke. And they still are today. Its still cameras are overpriced and lack basic features, and its "cinema" cameras lack the codec quality and resolution to be taken seriously.
Woe to those of us with an investment in Canon lenses (which are also getting worse yearly; witness the discontinuation of their excellent 35mm F 1.4 lens in favor of fussy, overpriced IS shit).
As time goes on, you realize how limited our choices are as content creators. Adobe products are moribund UI disasters that Adobe doesn't even sell anymore (now renting instead), but creating viable competitors takes man-centuries. Apple has abandoned its once-touted "creative users" in favor of clumsy dumbed-down shit, and Avid is a dinosaur that still thinks it can sell $100K systems that don't even handle modern formats. Options that run on Windows are basically ruled out because Windows has become such a mess that it isn't even a viable platform.
Shit, things are bad.
H.265? An interframe-compressed, color-decimating codec? That's exactly what Canon has been doing wrong for years.
And full-frame 4K? Enjoy trying to keep that in focus. A Super-35-sized crop would be a much better option that gives you proper cinema DOF. Full-frame should be available as an option, perhaps, but Super 35 or APS is a must.
