[Noah Kadner] "Probably more because all of those long-GOP formats lose major quality when re-encoded. I don't follow how that's Apple's fault. If every camera recorded to ProRes instead of H.264 we'd be all set."

H.264 uses much less hard disk space and requires much less sustained data transfer speeds than Pro Res. A lot of SD cards will not sustain writing speeds to record Pro Res at 4k. H.264 gives a good clean image without need for a lot of storage space or super fast storage type media.
