Full Frame RAW video dslr coming?

It’s what many of us are waiting for: A dslr that shoots raw video on a full frame sensor. Has the time already come? Planet5D says that such cameras, maybe the 5D mark3, are being tested in Europe. Let’s hope Canon is cool.

This new camera will more likely be the 1DS Mark IV, not the 5D Mark III.
It makes sense, based on current camera production cycles, the fact that
the 1DS is the only high end camera in Canon’s line which hasn’t seen an a video upgrade as of yet,
and it is their “flag ship” camera. If any camera will get RAW Video, it will be the 1DS.

Count around just under 300MBps for uncompressed RAW 1080p30 12bit 4:4:4 video and uncompressed surround audio. It’s just under the maximum spec of the new SDXC memory card. 2Tb would last around 2 hours at this rate.

Oh, I just remind that the new low-end T2i/550D supports SDXC…

However, normally, video has what you would call “redundancy”. In adjacent pixels, and in adjacent frames. This makes RAW video easily compressible with a lossless codec. This means you can shoot MORE uncompressed frames with the same bitrate. Damn good if you want to record kickass slowwwwmooo. Low light capability would also help there.

BUT (damnit there’s always a “but”) Who says compressed also says processing also says a powerful processor also says a big noisy fan.

So I’m sticking to uncompressed video, like cinemaDNG, whenever it’s available for human beings.

No way that’s a new 5d mark III, what innovations would be left for canons top of the crop camera? I’am sure the magic inside needs some processor power that’ll cost a fortune…

Wow, that would be insane! So much more possibilities for professional color correction! Hope this is not an PR gag…
