So there I was sitting in a car on my way back from a week long fishing trip in Miekak/Sweden. Switched on my phone and checked around and found this insane blogpost on Canonrumors.com claiming the new specs for the upcoming Canon 1d Mark V. Amongst other things apparently the video specs will be upgraded to 1080p with a framerate of 120fps!!! That alone is quite insane, and then take in regard that it’s a full-ass-kickin-frame sensor… I can hardly imagine better video specs for action sports video! Kicks most every other video camera on the markets ass for sure!
Of course there are still issues to be solved (rolling shutter, moiré), and the fact that the current 1D on the market (Mark IV) is quite pricey. But I’m guessing the cheaper upcoming 5D Mark III might have the same video functions and the same beautiful full frame sensor.
It’s all rumors, but it got me all hyped up for sure! Below are two examples of what you could do with 120 fps… Both are from RED but imagine the possibilities if this kind of slowmotion becomes standard!
