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.

On DPReview Top Picks: Stand-out third party lenses article (80 comments in total)

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?
