Oh wow, looks like a record number of replies from DSLR fanboys with their flipping mirrors.

"It seems the Samsung NX1 is now no longer alone in having a rather impressive sensor readout in a tiny affordable camera body.

With a Super 35mm size sensor (becomes full frame with the use of Metabones Speed Booster), the A6300 shoots 4K video internally to XAVC-S at 100Mbit.

The new sensor also features phase detect AF pixels (like the 1D X Mark II). During movie shooting the AF system reacts quicker than ever before. Also the A6300 has options for tracking sensitivity and speed, similar to the Dual Pixel AF options on a Canon body.

There’s no crop of the sensor in 4K mode."

This is a great upgrade for E mount users wanting to shoot 4K for a fraction of the price of the A7r II.

The highest rated Canon DSLR is in 25th place (5DS).

4K video with an OVF ? I would much prefer a high resolution 2.3-4.4 mp EVF. but this looks like the best DSLR for video so far.

Joe Ogiba: I get screenshots from my Samsung NX1 4K videos that look much sharper than that.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/435/19486683259_58b6f99daa_o.png

Ricoh / Pentax makes the 645Z with 50mp Sony sensor so we know they could make some great cameras. I also have the A7r so I wonder if the K-1 has the 36mp like the A7r or 42mp like the A7r II.

Sample video is by Keith Ladzinski who has shot and directed films on all 7 continents as a National Geographic film maker. I am sure DPR sample videos will not look the same ;)

In reply to:

bluesrockfan: I've just bought a UHD (3840x2160) 4K monitor and although the footage is really detailed and high definition, it's jerky and keeps stopping to buffer all the time. Could it be that I need a better graphics card (got a 1 GB Asus Radeon R5 230 at the moment), a faster broadband connection (12MB at the moment, although it's slower during peak times), or both? Or could it be something else? It's even a bit jerky when played at 1080p, and obviously not as detailed. Thanks in advance for any replies from those more tech savvy than me ;o)

The Radeon R5 230 is a very slow card with a PassMark rating of only 443 compared to my PC's GTX770 with 6,149 that I use to watch 4K videos.

On Connect post Panasonic to launch Lumix DMC-CM10 without phone functionality (132 comments in total)

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100 is a pocket size camera with 10x zoom , EVF and 4K @ 30fps video so why would anyone get this that only shoots 4K @15fps.

Stop spending time and money on this and get the GH5 with 4K 60 out soon. The ZS100 is small enough and has a 4K UHD with 10x zoom and EVF.

Guenter Hofstaedter: This is for a little Star Wars movie :)
As far i know Star Wars was also done analog, wasn't it?

Film has no future in movies. The Revenant was Nominated for 12 Oscars including Cinematography and was shot with the digital Arri 65. With high frame rates of 120 fps, HDR etc digital is the only way to go.

Maybe at Photokina Kodak will come out with this:

The fastest UHS-II cards are the 2000x 300MB/s Lexar cards.

Compare the following UHS-II cards measured in the included UHS-II reader (benchmarks using CrystalDiskMark v3.0.3, sequetial 1GB random data, results in MB/s)

Lexar Professional 2000x 300MB/s UHS-II 32GB: 296.5 read / 272.6 write

On article Top 5: Hands-on with Nikon D500 (785 comments in total)

The D500 looks better than the D5 for 4K UHD video but the Samsung NX1 kills both of them with both DCI 4K 4096x2160 and 4K UHD without cropping the sensor in 4K UHD mode.

Photoman: Isn't 4K just seeing crap in higher quality. Reality TV in 480p/720p1080p/4K is still crap.

You could make crap from any camera so what is your point ?
