GoPro HERO10 Black Review: The Most Significant Refresh in Years

Will Video Kill Photography’s Stars?

High-end video camera manufacturers are continuing to engineer innovative products that may one day change the way photographers take photographs, particularly in portrait, fashion and glamour circles.

It’s a challenging and tough sell, and not without a few obvious problems.

5K Footage Created by Shooting with the Canon 1D X at 14FPS

Canon's new flagship DSLR, the 1D X, can shoot 18.1 megapixel JPEG photographs at a staggering 14 frames per second in burst mode. This is nearly at the 16 frames per second needed to hide jerkiness from the human eye -- the flicker fusion threshold for moving images. Though the frame rate falls short of the 24fps used for Hollywood movies and by many video cameras, 18.1 megapixels per frame translates to 5K resolution in video lingo, while the video feature of the 1D X only shoots at 1080p (~2 megapixels per frame).

Gizmodo's Michael Hession realized that the camera's burst mode could still be used to produce reasonably smooth video. The clip above shows Hession's experiments with using the 1D X as a relatively cheap 5K video camera. 2,000 separate JPEG stills went into creating the two-minute-long video.
