Why does the Canon EOS 80D have “4k Movie” listed under image formats

EOS 80D

This was noted by one of our readers on Twitter (thanks @giupipia).

If you head over to the Canon EOS 80D specification page, then have a look under “Specifications -> Recording System”, you’ll see that the following is stated (emphasis mine):

Video: MOV (4K Movie: Motion JPEG, Full HD Movie: MPEG4 AVC/H.264*; Audio: Linear PCM), MP4 (Movie: MPEG4 AVC/H.264*; Audio: AAC)

The EOS 80D does not have a 4k video mode. I wonder why “4K Movie” is there. Is this a special time-lapse mode?

Any ideas?

What happened to the camera industry in 2015? (infographic & video)

The folks ar LensVid posted an interesting article about what happened to the camera industry in 2015. The infographics above gives you a quick overview.

More interesting, the people at LensVid put together some predictions for 2016:

  • 2016 will be a better year for the photography market. With that said, we still expect the total number of cameras sold in 2016 to be below 30 million – or around 15% decrease compared to 2015.
  • On the other hand, we expect more DSLR sales in 2016 – with a one digit increase, and more or less the same increase in mirrorless cameras.
  • We are predicting that compact cameras will drop below 20 million and may even get close to 15 million (compared to 22 million in 2015).
  • Finally, Looking a bit ahead in the next 2 years DSLRs and mirrorless cameras will have a bigger market share than compact cameras, which we are predicting – will become a niche market before the end of this decade.
