Updates on the 5D mark III
Planet5D talked to Chuck Westfall and asked him about scaling on the hdmi out on the mark III. This was his answer:
“…the resolution does not drop when you are connected to an external monitor and hit record. It does still have all of the overlays and the signal is not meant to be recorded.”
That’s no good news for all the harddisk recorder freaks out there. But then again the 5D3 offers a good compression factor and recording via hdmi wouldn’t do magic to your footage.
Canon has started to tease with Cinema EOS again. Are we going to see new products announced prior to the show? We’ve heard the 4K Cinema EOS DSLR would be announced “sooner than later”. Others have said it could be the Ron Howard project (thanks unfocused) being shown. We’ll be at NAB to find out.
The event will take place on Sunday, April 15, 2012 at 5PM
