Hope most of you have already read this review. This reviewer is upset about the quality of 1080P video of 5D III. Anybody here test the quality of 5D III's video?

What are your opinion about this review?

I have no doubt that there are quite a few video nuts using 5D2s and now 5D3s. The reality though is that as a proportion of buyers the video users will be tiny, and I get the impression that Canon is treating it like a gimmick on the DSLRs.

Canon are pretty poor at identifying new markets. They should've seen the video users loving the 5D2 and thrown the same sensor and better connectivity into a video-targeted body, but instead they make a C300 and ask waaaay too much for it.

Personally I couldn't give a toss. The only effect it has on me is that sometimes I like looking at the nice short films that were made possible due to cameras like the 5D2, but I'm sure those people will find something else to shoot on.

Considering how many HD television shows and theatrical releases have been filmed with the 5DMkII, I find this hard to believe.

Wait is this just the 5D3? Did the other Canon DSLRs likE 7D and 5D2 offer "true 1080p"?

Sort of glad to hear, actually... that at least Canon re-focused their efforts on what this camera is supposed to be: a stills camera.

I mean, it sucks for people who have been getting it to do cheap double duty, but in the end, Canon spent their efforts in making a great camera, even better, by fixing it's shortcomings. (Not I said camera and not video).

I do agree with the author, that Canon seems to have missed the boat with C300. I guess they consider anyone using less than a C3000 to be a mere hobbyist and their hobby-level dslr video cameras should suffice then.

So this guy felt the same way about the 5D Mark II as well, which was supposedly an 'amazing' video capable dSLR. I think this is just complaining that Canon didn't improve the video as much as the guy wanted. I also suspect that his complaints will resonate with the 0.001% of 5D customers shooting professional cinema and be meaningless to all the rest.

Practically, this complain means nothing to me.

I presume this guy could buy the C300. If that is too much, then he can buy that Sony A99 that he expects to come later. I have no idea what the light transmission issues of the partially silvered mirror mean to video shooters, but I know that the function of the Sony 'SLT' line is hugely problematic for stills.

What am saying? Many features in these cameras come with advantages for some users and negatives for others. Many landscapers are all excited about having 36MP in the D800 (for example). For me I'd rather have a faster burst rate and smaller files. That doesn't make them wrong, and it doesn't make me wrong.

Do you shoot professional video with the 5D Mark II? Did you feel the video resolution was poor (like this guy does)? If so, then he identifies that the 5D Mark III is not going to improve on that. It does improve on noise in video apparently.

I like EOSHD but seriously alot of their reviews seem a bit meh for me. He's consistantly praising the Panasonic GH2 over video versus the 5DII or III. But really? You have to hack a camera to get the best potential out of it?

Latest news is he is praising the D800, says we wants to switch to Nikon!

Me, I am happy with my 5D3. When the dust settles I think 5D3 will get the recognition it deserves, and how do I know this? It is my gut feeling and how well my 5D3 performs for me.

LOL and yet when you read his review of the D800 off of the "Joyride" video, he pretty much slams it for noise showing up in shadows and not so great performance. *:rolleyes:

I love my 5DIII too but i was considering on moving to the D800.Honestly, I couldn't wait anymore and I didn't want to wait almost another two months or so to buy a body only without being on pre-order list.
