Thanks for the quick response @dfort, What I mean by Durability of FuLL Frame Sensor's Pixel is that a full frame Video Pixel is so much bigger then a Micro 4/3 sensor aka Super 35 crop sensor, so by every FULL FRAME sensor pixel being bigger it gives room for better In Depth Field and less noise. But if like you say Magic Lantern is using less sensor real estate then a Micro 4/3 sensor to achieve 2K, 3K or 4K, that will answer a big question because it means we get more resolution but a much worse image. It might make sense to battle the aliasing factor with 3x3 sampling then get more resolution with a smaller crop factor of the sensor then a Micro 4/3 Sensor. My study say the goal if you decide to minimize video presentation to the spec wars, is to have a FULL FRAME Sensor with 4K recording from a Full Frame Sensor. I was just wondering if ML 5D2 FHD 1856x1248 is using the FULL FRAME Sensor? I know the most we can get from the 5D2 is 1880x1040 instead of 1920x1080, but is 1880x1040 FULL FRAME video recording and we just lack 40 pixel wide and 40 pixel high? This whole conversation is the hunt for what is the best image from ML RAW video from 5D2? Is it 10/12/14bit 2019Mar24 from Experimental, Bleeding Edge Experimental ReddeerCity's 2.6k April16's 2.6k_5d2_R_T_PreView_4-7-2019_crop_rec or is it still our trusty Feb 16, 2014 for MLV 2.0 and Oct 24 2013 for RAW 1.0? Thanks for any response, I just want to help communicate the best image from ML Raw.
