Reason Behind Canon Cropped 4K Video Mode DSLR and Mirrorless and More...

In an interview Canon representatives, clearly told photo.ru the real reason behind the 4K cropped mode of the Canon cameras and much more…

Major Points of the interview

1. Reason Behind Canon Cropped 4K video mode in Canon Cameras

Canon do not want Kill their Cinema Lineup by putting class leading video specs in DSLR or Mirrorless.

We can put 4K from a full frame in the SLR and mirrorless, but we do not want to “cannibalize” our own video segment.

2. Why Canon 200D II / SL3 / 250D have a weak video mode, cropped 4K without DPAF support ?

Canon entry level users can’t afford 4K editing software and hardware like  Macbook Pro preferably with Adobe Premiere by subscription. So, they want to treat the 4K video mode as marketing feature only.

3. In next 5 years, they have a plan to announce High Resolution Mirrorless camera.

4. No clear answer given when asked about Canon announcement before Olympics

5. When asked about built-in image stabilization inside Camera Body

We already have three patents on IBIS – on a mobile matrix and stabilization, Canon is currently developing a matrix stabilization technology – it will be coming soon. Other companies had a huge amount of problems with this. They test it essentially on users.

Fortunately here at thenewcamera.com we have published three different patents of Canon working in built-in image stabilization system See patent 1 | patent 2 | patent 3

 

Detailed Part – Translated Interview

….do not digest the marketing policy of the company. Why, for example, in one of the new C anon cameras – neither in the flagship, nor the middle or entry level, is it not possible to record 4K video without a crop? The company is technologically unable to carry out this task?

– We did not set such a function intentionally. We have a series of Cinema EOS – movie cameras. Canon separates EOS R and Cinema EOS from each other. This series is aimed at shooting a professional video. Camera Canon C700 – there certainly is 4K from the whole frame.

We can put 4K from a full frame in the SLR and mirrorless, but we do not want to “cannibalize” our own video segment.

………

The new Canon 250 D camera couldn’t be able to drag Cinema  EOS users to yourself if you gave it Dual  Pixel autofocus in 4K and at the same time read it without an additional matrix.

– 250D is an Entry segment camera. We all know that in order to process 4K, on ​​the one hand, in addition to the camera that can shoot it, there must be a computer that will be able to live through it, mount it and render it. Macbook Pro preferably with Adobe Premiere by subscription for 1500 rubles per month. How many entry-level camera users have this extra equipment? Probably not enough. Negligible. Therefore, I would treat 4K in the Entry segment as a marketing feature, which is nice to see with the eye on the box, on the price tag, and buy a 4K camera and never use it.

What is the resolution of the RF lenses?
– We learn in 5 years.

Could it be that the company is already testing a new camera, which will later be announced, for example, before the Olympiad?

“I’m sure Canon is already developing next-generation cameras, because testing usually starts at least a year before the camera enters the market.”

And when does testing end?

– A few months before the camera announcement. We have a very serious program of ambassadors, a very tough selection. Canon has the whole EMEA region – the whole of Europe, the whole of Africa, the Middle East and Russia – only 40 people. These are people with publications, participants of professional exhibitions of various genres, people who have really proved their professionalism, and we are working with them on testing

Why is the matrix stabilization not developed yet?

– We already have three patents on IBIS – on a mobile matrix and stabilization, 
but we continue to work on them. Canon never uses technology that has not yet been tested. It took us so much time, because the technology itself requires a very detailed study, because the moving matrix is ​​good, on the one hand. On the other hand, go to any service and ask how many cameras they have there with broken moving dies. The stabilization system is a very fragile thing.

Canon is currently developing a matrix stabilization technology – it will be coming soon. Other companies had a huge amount of problems with this. They test it essentially on users. Why do they have stabilization on almost all lenses? Because the matrix is ​​not very effective.

Canon 7D Mark III or Canon 90D, Which one to Arrive First ?

We are having Canon 32MP DSLR Rumor for a while. Some rumor mills are claiming that it’s Canon 90d or 7D Mark III camera.

Let’s talk about the set of of authentic information we have related to Canon professional APS-C DSLR camera.

The only state of reliable information we have is Canon is testing a camera 32 megapixel sensor and a battery which is found inside the Canon 7D series camera on the Canon 5D Mark 4 camera.

Canon 32MP DSLR – Initial Confirmed set of specification

  • Digital SLR
  • Wifi and Bluetooth 4.1
  • LP-E6N battery
  • 6 level battery display, similar to the EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Maximum image size: 6960 × 4640, 32MP
  • This will likely be a 2019 release

It’s very clear indication that Canon is testing a professional APS-C DSLR camera, now it all depends upon Canon marketing time which professional body they choose (Canon 7D III or Canon 90D ) for the introduction of the new 32 megapixel dual pixel auto-focus sensor. Most probably they can prefer the Canon 90d camera or they can choose Canon 7D Mark III for the introduction of their new sensor.

Let’s talk about the possibilities and let’s try to think in canon way.

Canon 7D Series Announcement Timeline

Canon 7D – Aug 31, 2009

[10, 11, 12, 13, ] (Years of gap)

Canon 7D Mark II – Sep 15, 2014

[15, 16, 17, 18 ] (Years of gap)

Canon 7D Mark III – Scheduled Release Date 2019

As you can see the Canon is keeping four years of gap in 7D series camera. And the schedule update time of 7D series camera falls somewhere around Q3 and Q4 of 2019.

Canon XXD Series Announcement Timeline

Canon 70D – Jul 2, 2013

[ 14, 15 ] (Years of gap)

Canon 80D – Feb 17, 2016

[17, 18 ] (Years of gap)

Canon 90D – Scheduled Release Date 2019

Now, as you can see Canon is keeping 2 years of gap in canon xxd series camera. Schedule update time of XXD series camera falls somewhere around Q2 and Q3 of 2019. So, more or less both Canon 7D Mark III and Canon 90D camera are waiting for their announcement based on scheduled update cycle of each camera.

Canon 7D Mark III Coming first, If Canon moves in the same path…

We have seen what Fujifilm is doing with their Fuji XT x series and XTxx series. If Canon moves in the same path as of Fuji and Sony is moving, they will introduce their flagship camera first (aka Canon 7D Mark III) and after seven to eight months of gap once the sales number are reach to a desired level then they will going to introduce bit affordable body (Canon 90D) with some trim down specification, while having the same sensor and image processor to reach more number of peoples, those who are not able to afford the professional body with higher price tag.

Same with Sony, they have introduced the Sony A73 camera while having the same core specification of Sony A9 camera at an affordable price tag to reach more consumers out there, those who are not able to afford Sony A9 camera.

Canon EOS R – Sep 5, 2018 ($1999 at Amazon.com)
Canon EOS RP – Feb 14, 2019 ($1299 at Amazon.com)

Canon is also doing the same job, first they have planned to introduce the Canon EOS RP, and Canon EOS R camera all together at the same time, just like the Nikon Z6 and Z7. But, rumors suggest their marketing team decided to obtain a new route as of other mirrorless makers. And as usual, they have first introduced the Canon EOS R camera and after 5 months of gap they have introduced the Canon EOS RP camera with an affordable price tag.

So if you’re looking at the strategy of this mirrorless maker, their first intention is to generate profit and the second intention is to gain more market shares. – TNC

So, if Canon is moving in the new path, for sure we will be having our Canon 7D Mark III camera first and after 7 to 8 months of gap once the sales number of Canon 7D Mark III camera reached to desired level, they will going to introduce affordable 7D Mark 3 camera under the Canon 90d body.

Forced Limits to Save-up Future Model Sales ?

Everyone knows Canon is bit popular in-putting forced limits in their camera. None of the Canon APS-C DSLR or mirrorless camera with dual pixel CMOS autofocus sensor is allowed to do AutoFocus in 4K, you can say allowed to use dual pixel CMOS autofocus technology while recording 4K video just to save the future sales about the upcoming flagship camera.

So if they have plan to introduce the Canon 90d camera first with 32 megapixel dual pixel autofocus sensor, for sure the camera will be having some forced limits inside to save the sales of Canon 7D Mark III camera.

Canon SL3 / 200D II High ISO Test

Canon SL3 / 200D II camera High ISO (via dpreview) test images are Let’s talk about the high ISO test of Canon SL3 camera and what we are able to observe through the test.

Canon SL3 RAW HIGH ISO Test

On RAW mode all the four camera (Canon SL3, Canon EOS M50, Canon 80D and Nikon D5600). After looking at the entire test, It’s very clear that Canon SL3 is controlling color noise slightly more better than Canon 80D or Canon EOS M50. But, the difference is very minimal and sometime it remains unrecognized. And finally we have Nikon D5600 camera with bit more better noise control than the other three camera.

None of the camera producing usable image at ISO 3200. We have to do proper post-processing to make these camera files usable. AT ISO 3200 Canon 80D RAW file generating Maximum color noise compared to the other three,  Nikon D5600 features minimal noise at ISO 3200. Canon 200D II / SL3 and Canon EOS M50 color noise level look similar.

 

Canon SL3 JPEG File Test

JPEG High ISO Test Comparison, Canon 80D again showing more color noise in the group. At ISO 3200 Canon EOS M50 and Canon 200D II exhibit similar amount of color noise, Nikon D5600 image sample is bit more clean and usable.

Canon 200D II / SL3 vs Others at ISO 6400 (MAX JPEG Usable ISO Limit)

ISO range in the specification sheet doesn’t matter, you have to look for usable ISO range in you camera. After looking at the High ISO JPEG files its look like usable ISO range in Canon camera is upto ISO 3200 and when you are having Nikon D5600 you can push it one-stop further upto ISO 6400.
