Interesting lay-persons attempt at HD video on the Canon Mark 1D - fail

Today?s Let?s Visit Tokyo missing due to poor Video quality Akihabara News)

Thought this was interesting for a number of reasons, principally because I've had a couple of calls for help from people about video on the 5D and 7D and these are not really video people but rather bought into the Canon DSLR video hype.

Don't get me wrong, the Canon can shoot amazing video in the right hands and with the right lenses. But so ca a heap of cameras actually.

2 Points he made:
1) Like the 7D, the 1D Mark IV 720/60p mode is utterly useless due to the moiré effect. Yep Canon did not even fix this on the 1D Mark IV
2) I like the 60p mode but unfortunately you cannot undercrank on the Canon and since most light in the street where at 50Hz, I had a horrible and too visible “Strobe Light” effect on most of the sequences.

Yeah, until they fix the lagging and/or nonexistent autofocus, DSLR video will not be viable for most consumers.

I mean, most consumers don't care about frame rates... even resolution is a secondary consideration. If the video is out of focus, nothing else matters.
