On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review preview (475 comments in total)

I think, besides the poor lens inventory, it is not a camera for serious still shooters.

I'm hoping for the impossible. Canon promised. Canon should make it possible.

Ruy Penalva: You say that the sensor in Lumix DMC-LX100 is 1.5X bigger than an 1" sensor but when compared to PowerShot G1 X II that has a 1.5" sensor it has a smaller area than it (180mm² X 239mm²). An 1.5X 1" sensor is not a 1.5" sensor? Explain me that. What measure you take into account to calculate both sensor areas in the way one is smaller than the other although they are of the same 1.5"?

This kind of disorder is becoming very frequent in modern days. I just think it is a functional disorder of neuron maturation. I don't know why that confusing terminology. I wonder they found a spectra of ADHD that goes from Hyperactive to Inactive within the same disorder. I need to read the subject to understand better. By the way, I think this is a clinical diagnosis of a spectra of minor disorders of brain function.

The case above I quoted is by comparing to an upper normal heart rate limit they call the ventricular tachycardia as being non tachycardic. An upper normal sinus heart rate is around 100bpm. When one takes into account a normal ventricular rate, around 40bpm, anything above that "normal" rate for a ventricle rate is considered tachycardia although it is not a true tachycardia when compared to a normal upper rate from a normal sinus rate, 100bpm. To a ventricle rhythm (rate) anything above 40bpm is considered tachycardia, although it is not a true tachycardia.

That confusion is great. I remember a medical condition in american medical literature called Non tachycardic tachycardia

And why a 1.5" sensor has 239mm² area? An 1.5" should not be a 1.5X 1" sensor?

May be this new model can focus better than the old one. I had the old one and almost all of my shot (telephotos) were under-focused when 100% amplified.

Ruy Penalva: I think Canon did not the more important job: a FF and better sensor. So, apart from some minor and utile real improvements, 7D MKII is born with valid time expired.

Hi friend, I have both Canon you quoted, besides 70D, Lumix GH4, Sony a7s! I had 7D and I hated it. When you compare any Canon FF lens in a cropped Canon sensor versus a FF sensor there are big differences in performance.

Ruy Penalva: I don't understand why Zeiss insist on doing MF lens. Wake up Zeiss!

I prefer to have all options available in my camera lenses. But if they were made to use follow focus and aimed at the cinema (very small public) user, I understand.

All Canon top cinema lens have AF. It is easier and cheap to make MF lens than AF one. See Samyang.

In reply to:

Ruy Penalva: Avoid. I bought a Mark IV to my a7s, and AF does not function at all. Horrible and amateur support if we can call that of support. A guy named Alex try to deceive you as being an specialist. No way to access adapter function (green & advanced). Pricey.

There is a button in the adapter (maybe what they call wide angle button???) I have already pressed that button in the two ways they teach (see under) but my adapter only choose "advanced mode".

"Choose the other operation mode by first turning on the power of your Sony NEX camera and either attach the Metabones Smart Adapter onto the Sony NEX camera body first, and then while depressing the Wide-Open button of the Smart Adapter, attach the Canon EF mount lens onto the Smart Adapter, or attach the Canon EF mount lens onto the Metabones Smart Adapter first, and then while depressing the Wide-Open button of the Smart Adapter, attach the Smart Adapter onto the Sony NEX camera body."

Thanks

I tested in three lens: EF 24-105 f/4 IS. EF 24-70 f/2.8 II. Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art as yet. The supposed technician support, named Alex, ( he is also from selling sector) told me that advanced mode does not support AF. It happens that I could not access how to change mode and Metabone states that by default green mode is assumed at beginning. Metabone also states that when you assemble the lens and the adapter, and turn the camera on, you are asked to choose between green or advanced mode. No message appeared to me so far. The adapter is supposedly using advance mode since there is constant control of aperture (visually seen) and image stabilization (heard). I think there is a flaw with this Mark IV adapter in Sony a7s camera. They made a firmware in August 14 but it did not fit it. Forget AF in a7s with the adapter and Canon brand lens.

PS. In my first usage AF appeared but disappeared mysteriously to never more come back again.
