Do you remember the story about Sony possibly making the Canon EOS R3 sensor? All…
The folks at EOSHD interviewed Jörg Ammon and John Morris of Canon Europe. The interview touches different topics, from the EOS 7D Mark II to Magic Lantern.
[does the 7D Mark II have] the same sensor as the 70D?
It’s not exactly the same, same technology but a little refined.
[asked about 4K video, Jörg Ammon from Canon Germany says]
For most people 4K isn’t the right thing because all the surrounding equipment isn’t fit for 4K. If you edit full HD on your own PC or laptop it needs a lot of time, and it will take 4x more to edit 4K material.
There’s a way to get better quality from the Canon cameras, and that’s to install Magic Lantern. It gives you a lovely image, with raw video. Isn’t that something Canon should support?
Jorg Amonn: We can’t say anything on the Magic Lantern side! Tricky subject.
John Morris: There’s no guarantee on it, and no manufacturer will support a third party firmware update.
