The main reason is data management. A stills camera can freeze an image in the sensor using a shutter, then take it's sweet time reading it out, compressing it if desired and writing it to a storage device. A video camera has to capture and readout the image within one frame time, the encoding and storage can be pipelined to some degree but they still ...


Reading 33Mp at 25 fps with 3 8bit channels per pixel is nearly 20Gib/s (order of magnitude estimate based depending on how the Bayer mark is dealt with etc.). On-chip compression trades this against the need for real-time processing on the sensor. This is clearly possible but expensive, power hungry and bulky compared to still image readout rates (at least ...


We examine a photograph for detail and pictorial information. We look at video and movies for different kinds of information having to do with flow and sequence. If we had the technology, we'd use it. Everything we have now is a concession to limited materials and processes. There are many phenomena that await such technology to reveal their secrets to ...


Do you have a display(TV) that could utilize 100mp? Also, capturing 30fps of 100mp images... Not going to happen in today's world without a serious cost. Why do stills need this? For printing large formats and for post production cropping abilities.


I have a question. What is the subject of your image? If it's the kitchen view, I'd suggest a different approach with your camera and the light issues. Get them out of the image altogether. Change perspective and angle Raise up you camera high off the ground and angle the lens down to the kitchen area of your "subject." Lights are distracting to the image....


I'm happy to share a few techniques I've used for over 20 years to get better sports images. Before you arrive, ask yourself what type of a image do you want to see "on film". Far better for you to answer than the camera. With a digital camera you can perfect your ideas in warm up's well before the match happens. 1 No Auto-Focus, pre-set exposure and don'...


If the arena was well lit, and you were shooting around f2.8, you shouldn't have gotten too much noise in your images. Did you check the settings your pictures were taken at afterwards to see what ISO your camera chose? Remember f2.8 is not technically f2.8 on an APSC sized camera, you have to multiply it times Canon's 1.6x crop factor to get the real f ...
