Now this maybe true or not - that's why I'm posting here.

I heard today that my company are switching from Canon to Nikon.

Apparently Sky are stopping sports togs from using cameras that can record HD movies and that my company are switching because Nikon can disable video functionality at the factory.

Does this ring true?

Any sports togs using 1D Mk IVs in the UK heard anything?

Good luck tracking sport on a canon SLR without a hugely obvious rig...

It absolutely rings true insofar as the various broadcast rights holders (SKY in this case) would eventually cry foul over dSLRs that shoot video.

They have exclusive contracts (that litterally cost billions) to record moving images of sporting events and dSLR video is definately an issue. Only a matter of time before FOX, ESPN, CBS, NBC and Turner do the same thing here in the USofA.

The irony of course is that all of them are using dSLRs to shoot projects for their broadcasts!

Yeah, but just because someone CAN video a football game doesn't mean they should.

The people filming the games now have it down to a science. The guys down on the field getting stills aren't going to switch to video when there's someone right by him that can do it.

They're allowed to shoot stills. Why would they want to shoot video? They wouldn't be able to publish it.

Besides, DSLRs with HD can't touch the 90,000 dollar cameras the pros are using to film football.


Thank you. bw!

There were rumors about this happening quite a while ago, I can see it happening too, though I am sure some Software changes can rectify it.

Video is in the D3s, D300s and D90 plus other lesser cost cameras.

FWIW, it's rumored the next Nikon (D3100) DSLR to be released will have HD video with Auto-focus. Linky (external link)

Tell your company to go to the 7D studio version, your admin folks could lock it down so that there was no video available for the shooters.

I was just going to ask that same question,

Is this part of the impetus behind the new 7D SV ?

They could still shoot 1D MkIII...

To me, the whole idea of banning a camera, which can shoot videos, just because it can, is ridicuolus.

Killing people isn't allowed in any country I know of, but:
We don't take every gun away from the world just because they can be used to kill people.
We don't take household knives away from the world just because they can kill people.
We don't take all cars away, just because they kill people now and then.
We don't take all the people away, just because they can kill people.

You can just as well use a non-video DSLR (1D Mark III) and have one of those small videocams in your pocket.
Let people use whatever tools they want to do their job, then go after those you use it wrongly.

No photographer ever paid $1 Billion dollars for the broadcast rights to NFL games either...

Big Boy Money Talks .. Common Sense has no place at the table.

Welcome to the real world of professional sports.

but if this is your analysis, then you know that guns are not allowed on stadiums, and knives, and cars and other dangerous materials because they can be used to kill people or they want to stop people from using these items to kill people.

so again, if this is your analysis, then the banning of Video capable DSLR is correct, since they are trying to stop people from shooting video.

but I disagree with this totally also... and I think this is impossible to do without affecting many many pro sports photog.

Can they not use a 1D MKIII?
