Quote: The D500 has 15 F8 AF points, which are in the center, F5.6 everywhere else.The 5D mk IV's 4K has a high IQ quality codec for serious work. Not some low bitrate high compression job. High compression is fine for some kind of end product, but what the 5D mk IV offers is better for source material, for sure.
4 1/2 hours of 5D MKIV's 4K video needs one Tb of storage, that's ridiculous!!
That is OK for the odd clip here and there, but is not an asset quite the contrary, which is why so few companies use it. Whether Canon couldn't be bothered to put in the appropriate compression or that they didn't want to risk sales of dedicated video cameras (who knows) actually I do, It's the latter!
The 6DMkII could do both pro stills and pro video.....
Whatever the scenario 4K with H264/ H245 or compression is way better than 1080P.
Back we go again to the 10 cents headphone socket,
Why can't ordinary people use a extension microphone? you don't have to be a pro to not like poor sound quality.
Again no second card slot saved Canon 150 cents ( I'm being generous).
These limiting items are nothing to do with being reasonable, it's just market protection.
When the pressure of ML starts tightening the screws, all of a sudden Canon and Nikon will change their modus operandum and give people what they "want" rather than what they decide they are going to be given!
PS. The biggest advantage of dual cards slots is when you arrive somewhere to shoot and you've forgotten to put back in your SD card in the camera, luckily you still have a card in the second shot, I've done it so many times!
The headphone socket needs space and a place. So does the 2nd card. So, bigger camera = 5D, smaller simpler camera = 6D.
