DP / Filmmaker
I am wondering who is asking for this? I would think that color science, bit-depth, auto-focus, frame-rate, and rolling shutter, are the areas they should prioritize before considering 8k.
I'm sure we'll benefit from the processing power in the camera for 4K and 1080 (think 320fps 1080p/120 4K) if it's 8K capable. I just don't see myself using the 8k personally. The post work-flow and data hoarding of 4K is plenty for me now and in the near future.
How do you downvote FACTS. Go to DJI.com if you don’t believe someone who has owned a Phantom 4 Pro since launch day as well as the Phantom 4 preceding it. After all, wouldn’t you like to be given the correct info?
Oh sick! they copied the design of the Duzi 4 to improve their slider... good on ya :)
not quite... the P4P did the exact same thing h.265 & h.264 @100mbps. The statement is only true if you are going from a Phantom 3 or Phantom 4 (non pro)
Sooo.... the new Phantom 4 Pro V2 is now capable of 100mbps h.265... which is a huge step up from the video quality of my current Phantom 4 Pro which only clocks in at a modest 100mbps h.265 & 100mbps h.264? It seems you're information would be correct if you framed it in terms of upgrading from a Phantom 4, but even so it's not "new for 2.0" it's carried over from the original Phantom 4 Pro.
@NFS, wouldn't a more appropriate title for this article be, "Why the hell are filmmakers still paying any attention to Canon?"
Haha, in all honesty... this is a company who got lucky off the 5D and just DOES NOT GET US! Nor do they care about "us" (filmmakers). If that's not clear to you yet & your still expecting something worthwhile from the Canon-Camp, maybe you should write for a photography blog.
Canon is dead in my eyes and I have over $10k in EF glass, so it's not like I wasn't pulling for them, but I knew the score back when the 7DII first dropped.
These guys have no interest in catering to filmmakers via DSLR. They would rather you spend 5x more cash to buy one of their plastic Documentary-Cameras.
When they release a 6DII in 2017 with no 4K, it's lights out.
