->> Canon has been an INCREDIBLE disappointment to filmmakers for years... The idea of pulling stills from video is so old hat now it's hardly worth mention. The one thing the Canon does better than the true cinema style cameras is that it's ISO performance is excellent.

Beyond that, I can pick up a RED and have 4k or 5k images in RAW at 24-48fps. Maybe in a few years Canon will get it right. God knows they've had half of Hollywood telling them what was needed and STILL got it wrong this go round.

->> " Canon has been an INCREDIBLE disappointment to filmmakers for years..."

That must be why so many film makers have used, and continue to use, Canon 5D Mk2s and Mk3s in their work.

I suppose, that while inadvertently revolutionizing the film industry, Canon should really have been worrying about disappointing that sad few who would have, well, been sad in any case.

(BTW. If you want to hear complaints in "Hollywood" about a camera you should really check out the way the industry feels about Red. They use them, but they sure as heck don't like 'em. For a camera that people like check out the Arri Alexa)

->> Here's what one website wrote about the Arri Alexa, Canon product, and RED product. Please pay attention to the discussion about which product fits which segment of the industry the product is targeted for as well as the costs of the products. I think it will all make a bit more sense....

->> Well Jim,

I've shot two films on Canon's, been involved on RED, but have not yet used or posted Alexa.

Hollywood has been after Canon for YEARS to try to get them to allow access to the RAW as well as a number of other features. Hasn't happened. I remember watching Rodney Charters discussing this over 4 years ago as he was using up to 10 5DMk2's shooting "24" even when he moved principle photography to the JVC.

Nikon dropped the ball after innovating this in the D90. Canon picked up the ball and ran with it. Nikon has caught and surpassed Canon for DSLR based video, but the world is a different place now, with sub $20k REDs, Black Magic's $3k 2k camera, etc.

The Alexa has been something of a boon for high end fillmakers but that has as much to do with many people's disdain for RED as anything else. Supposedly, the post pipeline is easier. I set up for RED post nearly 4 years ago so it's not a big deal to me either way. I have to say that winning over DPs like Roger Deakins (Skyfall, No Country for Old men) was a boon for Alexa, but most of these guys have been with Arri for a great many years. Add to that Fuji dropping cinema film, and Kodak's bankruptcy, and all of their hands were forced.
