On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review preview (353 comments in total)
In reply to:

jesus_freak: What happened to the video mode Studio Test Scene comparison? I'd be interested in seeing the difference between native 1080p and downscaled 4K with this test scene.

Also, a low-light video mode test scene would be really helpful too!

Go to youtube and search there's lots of them!

Joe Ogiba: The stills I get from my GH4 4K videos are great looking and if I need images for 36x48" prints I use my A7r .

Are these large prints landscape shots? Where do you get that size of prints made, that sounds promising.

Wish I had that luxury to have a separate camera for large prints!
Currently have an RX10, pretty nice for 1080P especially with the new XAVC-S codec, But I want to get a GH4 so I can shoot 4K, so you don't think that you could print fairly consistent large prints with a GH4, with good lens's?

On High Flyer? DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Drone Review article (133 comments in total)

Please! Will someone at dpreview hire someone who can cover video reviews that are worth a crap! Many of the reviews I have read on cameras and systems like this DJI drone here are pathetic at best!

Your into video whether you like it or not! SO why not give great reviews!
What was omitted? Try: file type, MBPS, difficulty of keeping horizon level-(Maybe Drone Issue), What kind of card's that are used, any rolling shutter, Moire, Motion Blur, Camera Settings, C'mon man!

gskolenda: Well, It looked like a nice camera for a second camera, but, No Microphone Port, No Headphone Port, No Articulated Screen, No 4K in 24-FPS, No Neutral Density Filters. To many No's for me. Could be a nice camera for street shooters.

Thankful? I have No reason to be thankful, I don't own it, and I ain't buying it!

That's exactly what I'm saving up for! I was hoping this could be a camera for B-Roll 4K

In reply to:

stevo23: Brilliant! This is a perfect step and Panasonic gets it. GX7, LX100, GM5, GM1. M43 is/should be the new compact.

The down side is the idea of not using the whole sensor.Call it 16Mp, but only deliver 12? That's kind of a rip.

Steve23, Your mixed up dude, Micro Four Thirds sensor is bigger than a 1" sensor before any cropping!

In reply to:

munro harrap: Well peoples, this is the first practicable digital compact camera.
It could have been marketed at the time the D2X was, but they held back for the best part of a decade to flog us suckers expensive yet really poor mini-chipped substitutes. Even now it is the first they have put an accurate viewfinder in.

I guess the reason is plain. Leitz lenses. Was the deal minichips until we say otherwise or none of our optics at all?

I went as far as buying A Powershot G3 secondhand, but the dreadful viewfinder and shutter lag made me return it. Poverty pays off on occasion!!

Apart from the video there is nothing that could not have been achieved satisfactorily ten years ago, since with the fast zoom lens it will be OK at 100iso most of the streetshooter's time.

I hope the noise is at 2014 APS-C 12MP CMOS levels???

It will be very good!

In reply to:

Mikexilva: I'd like to be able to use 30FPS in video modes because 30FPS is better for motion and on a 4k monitor that syncs at 3840x2160@30Hz, 25p video is not best option and doesn't give natural motion for videos.
In the future frame-rates won't be so much a compatibility issue.
Since the LX100 for NTSC countries allow this 4K@30FPs why can't we have the same power for the same model in Europe?
I know 24FPS is universal from a compatibility standpoint, but that's not the point.
I've been using an LX7 for the past few years and even the 1080p25 video mode can't use 1/25 exposure with auto-focus mode (just 1/30 or faster shutter speeds).
Does anybody know if there is any way to select PAL / NTSC mode in LX100, or can I flash a NTSC firmware in LX100, or if I import an NTSC LX100 will the warranty still be valid in Europe?
It would be also nice to have 4096x2160p24 video mode using closer to 24mm from lens instead of 3840x2160p30/25 using just 26mm of the 24mm widest angle lens can get.

When shooting any video you should always be trying to use the 180 degree shutter rule. That is, set your shutter speed to 2X the FPS. So if your shooting at 25-FPS, then your Shutter Speed should be 1/50th. Now, this rule is used to preserve the best motion, should you have a subject that is less motion and more static, then you can fudge on the rule and move the Shutter Speed up or down one to accommodate exposure.

I think this camera is going to ROCK! I think many will be surprised at the Low Light Performance. and the picture and video quality, This is really cutting edge and brilliant design! Kudos to Panasonic!

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1861 comments in total)
In reply to:

gskolenda: Come on Canon from a video perspective, This is Crap! No Time lapse, No Wifi,
No Slo-mo FPS, Limited codecs! I'm still buying a GH4 twice the camera, and 4K to boot! I don't want tohear about who needs 4K, If your thinking that, then you don't understand 4k's benefits!

The benefits of 4k in the GH4 world are Full sensor scanning and no line skipping and pixel binning! Superior 1080P video with up to 200mbps! Smaller size, weight, great glass, and more coming.

Canon is relying on there existing owners of Glass to upgrade to this piece of crap! Canon, if your reading any of this, get with it man, the tech window is barley 12 months, not 5 years, That's why you lost me and all my glass!

On Sony adds XAVC S support to Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 article (88 comments in total)
In reply to:

kwa_photo: Wow....you know what has frozen over! A FW update from Sony!!! Yippee!!! Why just Windows so far??? I'd venture to say that almost 70%+ photographers I know use Mac and not Windows. Strange choice.

You would be wrong in the full global spectrum of Windows verse's mac owners that are photographers, and videographers. Maybe in the group of people you know.

In reply to:

M Jesper: Now that we know this is possible, they've shot themselves in the leg if they don't update the A6000 as well. Keeping reputation up and all.

Check this out, talk about shooting yourself in the leg!

Sony has really ticked off some high end customers, There is a veteran camera man that purchased a F5 cost. $16,000, then there is the F55 cost $29,000, The main difference, the F55 does 4K internally to SDXC cards I think that's the name of them,

He figured out that all he had to do was take the latest Firmware upgrade for the F55 and used it to upgrade his F5, whala! Instant 4K recording internally, the main reason the F55 owners bought there camera. WHOA!

I believe there are other functions that were improved also on the F5 The two cameras are very identical in design and external features, If you want to research it to see for your self just google F5 Hack, even though it's not a real hack, that's what it's being called, It's interesting reading on how the industry independent videographers feel about MFG's firmware updates. Anyhow thought it was interesting.

In reply to:

Nukunukoo: We have two RX10 run-and-gun rigs and I wonder if XAVC S will be enough to leave the Ninja 2s in the bag. Welcome addition.

I would love to see same video shot at AVCHD and XAVCS to compare them. I know sometimes an increase in the bit rate can only be a benefit in post, but it still would be interesting to see.

In reply to:

Fazal Majid: It's 2014. A camera's video features are not "impressive" if it's not 4K.

Your not understanding 4K!
It's out for me, No Microphone port or Headphone port. Sony what are you thinking?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review preview (678 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: Im surprised that DPR is impressed with the 4k video. The reviews that ive read have not been impressed with it at all. I guess its another checkbox to check off.. but, it would have been better to provide higher bit rate 1080p.

The GH4 owner will have more flexibility to massage the video in post as compared to the video of the FZ1000, Keep in mind that Panasonic is not going to rape it's sales of the GH4, I guarantee it. I wouldn't be a betting man.
