Hmmm. So how long will the wait be? Will Panasonic make this obsolete, by the time it's released?
I am saving up. I believe. It's also got 4k video at twice the bitrate of the GH4....finally!
Francis Carver: "....in the US the camera body will cost $1699.99, and the video interface unit will be $1999.99."
No wonder then that nobody can take this company seriously any more.
Wow, USD $3,700 for the camera and interface monstrosity only -- just to shoot some mystery-grade 4K video using a smallish, square sensor?
Suddenly, our Down-Under friends with Blackmagic are the Honest Abes in the bottom-priced 4K video arena.
The Black Magic requires plenty of "monstrosity"
KrisAK: Has it been determined if:
Native 1080 / 60fps video is generated via line-skipping, or via down-sampling from a full-frame readout (what I think's referred to as pixel binning)?
(I know 4K 24/25/30fps can be down sampled in post, but for 60p everything's in-camera, right? I'm also considering Sony's 4K handycam which claims to do full-frame down-sampling for 1080/60p, and was hoping the GH4 would do the same internally.)
The advantage with GH4 over the FDR-AX100 is the use of great interchangeable prime lenses. This means far more creative control for better cinema quality, even without external recorder.
All the new lens choices are making my head spin.
This was mentioned some time ago. Can't wait to see vdeo results ad compatibility list.
These are exciting. They will really be exciting if the price is low. Can't wait to see video samples.
rialcnis: Will the GH5 do 3D?
I already sent my GH3 back to Amazon to sell. Is future proofing even possible?
Yeah I know, I meant native 4K 3D video But being sarcastic anyway.
Will the GH5 do 3D?
I need this. Guess I'll sell the GH3
Gettiing this update is fine, but I was still dreaming of some Video mode/bit rate additions.
I don't know if you can be a living blues legend anymore until you're dead.So don take me no pictures till i'm in the graveyard cuz then I cant see a thing...
I've had the cloud since it started. I'd prefer it that Adobe dropped the cloud and slashed their program prices. I only use 4 of the programs and have used them prior to the cloud for years.
This is a major disaster for Adobe and a major wrning to all the major sftware companies.
I remember when Bill Gates was against the cloud idea years ago. He argued againstnthe Sun Computer slogan, "The computer is the cloud" or some such...
I am sick of having all these damn clouds havingto connect. In a perfect word without thieves, terrorists and with unlimited bandwidth, I wouldn't care.
It's always been obvious to me that the whole cloud/internet will become just dead letter boxes full of spam. People tend to be short-sighted and naive to threats in this crazy world.
I did get the email from Adobe. I hope what they are saying is true.
"Kubrick Prime" has such a nice ring.
They should update the 4/3 lenses for m4/3 to native m4/3 with just a innovative adapter. Keep the small body size. Then all m4/3 users will buy the adaptor and start using (buying) the 4/3 lenses too.
You forgot to tell us about the new, upcoming, FIRMWARE update for the OM-D, that will unlock 50-72 mbps bitrate, and 24p and 60p. For video.
I might have to switch to Panasonic, if the OM-D doesn't get a video update right away.
