Check our discussion with Canon Ambassadors Clive Booth, Christian Anderl & Ingo Leitner. After touching on very interesting topics such as shooting a commercial with the new Canon C700 and the advent of 8K video in the last two episodes, our conversation turns once again to Canon, and the reasons why it seems to be holding back video features on their DSLR time and time again.
You may be aware of our growing frustration with Canon holding back video features on DSLRs. This is especially true when you consider that they pretty much created a market with the release of their 5D Mark II in 2008, and even more so when you notice competitors offering so many more features often for a lower price.
As our ride with Clive Booth, Ingo Leitner and Christian Anderl comes to an end, we pose the question to these Canon Ambassadors about why this is the case for Canon cameras. As video shooters exclusively, we want the best possible features in our cameras, but perhaps their point of view as both professional photographers AND filmmakers can help us understand Canon’s approach a little bit better.
