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?
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?
