K5 Effective recording pixels for video

Does the new K5 use all itspixels on its sensor for full HD when recording as opposed to what I learnt about the Canon. Especially the new 60D.

Here is the link.

Effective Pixels 101|SmallHD

That is for an ext HD monitor display, no DSLR uses more than 2mp for 1080p recordings.

Wow this is excactly the issue I stumbled on this week.


This video I added in the section for K-5 firmware update questions.

Thanks for pointing out this article. I already discoverd that Canon had similar problems.
