[IMPOSSIBLE] 720p recording with sensor crop in 600D
« on: March 07, 2013, 11:40:38 PM »
600D is the only camera to feature the wonderful 1080p recording with central crop from the middle of the sensor for 1:1 grab quality from the sensor.
My question is - Will it be possible to include a 720p capture in crop mode?
It won't be illegal to add that, as the camera anyway supports 1080p, and this is in fact a sort of "downgrade".

It would be very useful as the 720p is much more easy to MF as the LCD resolution is more or less the same, plus, the recording is done at 60FPS, which at some situations yield a much higher quality footage than the 1080p 30FPS mode.

I mostly use 720p because of it's 60FPS. The footage looks much more natural and live. Would be wonderful to have it also in the crop mode. (the digital zoom in that case would be around 4x)

Sure when we figure out how to change the video modes. Only the H.264 encoder uses fixed sizes as far as I can tell. 

Implementation not so easy though.
