Quick Links: the Nikon D4 and Canon C300 edition

Nikon D4 News

Dan checks out the D4 and it's video capabilities:
Yesterday I had a chance to get a hands-on with a pre-production Nikon D4 at the company’s UK headquarters. James Banfield of Nikon UK demonstrates the video functions in the video below.

We tried the camera’s clean HDMI output with the Zacuto EVF and Atomos Ninja and I can confirm that it works. We also tried the headphone output and the audio functions of the camera and I’m pleased to report they also work as expected.

A comparison chart for the two new cameras; on the face of it, there's not a whole lot of differences.

A comment in this thread about the D4 announcement ponders why full frame in video mode uses 91% of sensor width. Another commentor takes a guess:
the processor (whatever they call their digic equivalent) has a set of hardwired demosaicing algorithms, that take the original 4928x3280 bayer pattern and create jpg files of different sizes; the one closest to 1920x1080 is the algorithm that leads to 2048x1360 images

Canon C300 News

Alex Buono, a DP for Saturday Night Live tweeted yesterday:
For those whom the otherwise random characters "#C300" mean something, look for 2 spots on #SNL tonight right after the monologue.
