| p.1 #14 · p.1 #14 · 1DC is nothing more than the exact 1DX with a minor firmware change |
Ii am not sure if Andrew read more into the statement than was there.
He had been turning into more of a fanboy laterly, and almosta troll in his own comments. Not very professional at times.
The tech said it was the same body which makes sense. But whether it would be possible to run the 1DC firmware straight on the 1DX is unclear, or whether there are other internal differences (IK am not justifying the $6K, just questioning whether we have all of the facts yet.).
Phillip Bloom does have an excellent review on 1DX video from August 14. Very low key, no rig, lighting, or crew. Probably the best DSLR video out these. The 5D3 and D800 are probably still tied foe 2nd tier, depending. D800 some aliasing & moire, also some posterization/banding. 5D3 with none of those, but the D800 has clean HDMI out.
In comparisons, too, remember that the 1DC is also a still camera. So the C300 is a better comparison to the FS700, etc.
So many people have been comparing things like the BMCC to the 5DIII. That is somewhat worthwhile, but the big difference is this:
I also need a GREAT stills camera. So it is not a questiopn of $3,000 for the 5D3 or the BMCC. It is: Spend $3,000 for a stills camera, now:
Can I justify another $3,000 for a video camera?
Fpr many, the answer is still "no." So the T4i/GH3/etc. are the higher end for a B camera.
If I could justify it cost wise, the C100 looks great. That sensor in the C100/C300/C500 is fantastic! Pure color, no interpolation for color makes it really special!
I also calculated that if teh Yen was not so strong and was still at the 117-120 range of 2008, that $6,500 C100 would cost $4,333 ..... ah, Japan needs to intervene on the Yen, think of teh exports!!
