    hi all,
    I am trying to get a better understanding of the image quality of various Canon cameras particularly in relation to bit rate. The Canon 80d say it has a max bitrate of 90mbps and the Canon C100 MK1 says it has a max bitrate of 24mbps and the C300 MK1 around 54mbps. Does this mean that the 80d shoots at a higher bitrate than these other cameras?
    How does the 35mm sensor relate to this ( if at all). What exactly is the bitrate? assuming that all these files are being compressed in ALL-I what does the bitrate correlate to? How does the codex relate to the bitrate?

    [jimmy joe roche] “Does this mean that the 80d shoots at a higher bitrate than these other cameras? “

    That’s exactly what it means.

    [jimmy joe roche] “How does the 35mm sensor relate to this ( if at all).”

    It does not relate to that at all.

    [jimmy joe roche] “assuming that all these files are being compressed in ALL-I what does the bitrate correlate to? “

    All of those files are not being compressed in “ALL-I”, so asking what the bitrate correlates to has no meaning.

    [jimmy joe roche] ” How does the codex relate to the bitrate?”

    Codec. The codec doesn’t relate to the bitrate at all. Instead, the bitrate relates to the codec.
