The rise and fall of GoPro.
So is this why Blackmagic's global sensor m4/3 camera hasn't shipped yet?
They're waiting on Panasonic and Fuji to develop the chip?
Maybe Panasonic and Fuji need to tear apart an existing (shipping) Blackmagic camera with global shutter and figure out how those darn Assies did it!
teddoman: Dunno what an organic sensor is, but I want it.
You're going to have to water it once a week.:-)
KrisAK: Hey, Grant Petty:
Here's how you handle delays.
@KrisAKIf Nikon were Grant Petty, they'd start shipping the camera the night before they announce it's replacement.:-)
They should have given this camera a better feature set than the 1D C, and kept all the stills goodies.
And the 1D C should be 5K or more.
Oops forgot about the C family.
Its a good thing Reds don't have flash sync.
What are they gonna do?
(I do hope they fix this autofocus stinting, touch screen menus, etc in a firmware upgrade)
What were they thinking? (Not)
Sports Dad: My big question is, can it focus properly during 4K video?
Sony can keep steady focus on a subject during 4K video, but only with a $3400 body.
Panasonic has 4K, but with DFD focus still has a tendency to wobble. If a subject is moving towards me from my experience it has issues.
The Nikon 1 has 4K but only at a mostly unusable rate of 15 FPS.
So far the only DSLR that can keep focus during video is Canon, but no 4K.
The only ILC cameras so far that can maintain usable focus during 4K (and during 1080/120p) are from Samsung...and the NX1 was able to do it over a year ago. But their future is more than cloudy. Better to burn out than to fade away I guess.
And the people buying the $3400 Sony that can focus will probably manually focus anyway.
The 2nd generation C series Canon video cameras I think can keep reasonable focus.
And some models do 4k.
But at a price point that probably isn't relevant to this discussion.
So Sony caught the Nikon virus?
There was a local chapter of a larger group doing a similar thing for homeless people/families during the holidays.
It's nice when photography reaches out to do good, including the work highlighted in this article.
is this another one of those give aways where it has to be returned in a year?
I'm personally not interested in anything here but one thing.
Maybe the Nikon, Olympus and other users have things they like.
I'd like to see the Quantum Film idea implemented in an APS-C or FF sensor.
Touting it as 4k but at 15fps is pretty close to lying.
I don't trust this company now.
I wouldn't trust them in the future.
@SchweikertSo, I guess you won't be driving for Lift or Uber anytime soon.Those people have to be nice to keep their jobs.Just kidding!:-)
Bernard Carns: Only 3 minutes of 4k video?
Are they using the leftover sensors from Sony that overheat too much?
Rishi,Sent you a private message with respect to your question.Thx.BC
Only 3 minutes of 4k video?
Nigone introduces a Pro camera at a consumer show.
Too Much To Little To Late, plays in the background.
Are these the same people who are running McDonalds?
NeilJones: Complete overkill. Sony a7r ii can achieve similar results at a fraction of price. With most images being web based now, who needs a 100mp!So silly.
@NeilJonesIf webpages are the destination then even your dear A7rII is overkill. An A7r II for webpages is so silly.:-)
chriscotec: I'm a long time lens adapter, to Canon EF, M4/3 and now Sony FE (A7RII). I have a pretty large pile of lens adapters.
The Sony A7RII has taken this to a new level as it has great AF performance with Canon EF lenses. It doesn't matter that I don't have the money to replace my prized Canon EF lenses with the native Sony versions, some of them, especially fast ones, don't exist in the Sony FE mount. For architecture I HAVE to adapt my Canon TS-E lenses.
I don't just have the Metabones Smart adapter for E-mount, I also bought the Speed Booster, so I can use my lenses on the (extremely useful) 18MP cropped portion of the A7RII's high resolution sensor. This in effect means each full frame lens has two focal lengths, without cropping, making for a quicker, less data intensive workflow, when it suits.
I think that in this stage of Sony's lens range evolution, adapters, especially smart ones, are almost a necessity for a versatile professional system.
@Average UserAbsolutely agree.Options are great!
Nice to see this forum start.It seems like the logical progression of things.I have a couple of converters.One to go from Nikon to m4/3 for my Panasonic cameras, and one to go from Nikon to Canon so I can use some Nikon glass on my Blackmagic Production camera.A forum about adapters is welcome.Thanks!BC
steelhead3: I didn't know that DPreview had become video site...can we expect reviews of the new Sony, Panasonic, and Canon video cameras?
I want sites like this and DXO to test Blackmagic cameras.
