So it records HD at a higher bitrate than 4K. Brilliant.
Michael Ma: Still no x64 Windows 7/8 drivers for RW2 files for the latest cameras. How do they expect to be taken seriously? Can't they hire one guy for a day to tweak the codec and recompile it for x64 processors?
You're talking about Panasonic here, the company that (as far as I recall) NEVER released a DV100 codec for Windows. Or even DV50, if I remember correctly.
This is like releasing a printer with no Windows drivers. Idiotic.
Jogger: DxOMark is trying to expand their presence in terms of sensor performance measurement. So, its natural that they would soon extend this into the cine market.
But, i dont think it makes a whole lot of sense to compare a cine camera and a stills camera.. esp. when there is obviously multi-exposure trickery going on.
Why not? It makes plenty of sense, when a growing number of cameras can be used for still and motion pictures.
And... "multi-exposure trickery"? Nice FUD, fuddy-duddy.
jkoch2: Global shutter is nice. But, to be operative, a Blackmagic system requires considerably more scratch than the $3,000 price of the body.
Outstanding pre-orders now stand wat what multiple of inventory?
I don't see any claim that raw is ready. It says ProRes right now, and nothing more.
pew pew: well, the global shutter is a nice feature, wish more cameras had it, but the issue with this camera for me is that you need to rig this camera, and can´t really carry it around. But again this camera is not for nubs like me, more toward enthusiasts and pros.
"This camera does not have what we know to be a true "global shutter."
What are you talking about?
ChefPisi: is this camera made in China like the NEX 6? I sure hope not!
Learn what racism is. Saying that you don't like stuff made in China isn't racist.
Can anyone explain why 35mm lenses are so big? The 30 mentioned in the intro is smaller, as is a 50mm (at least based on the Canon 50mm I have).
The Canon 35mm is relatively huge too. What's the deal?
