Another good and honest video, and probably confidence building for those new to a studio environment.
I too would like to see some sample images to go with it, though realise this would take prior agreement from the studio.
Obviously a controlled lighting situation doesn't challenge the DR of a camera hardly at all, but the focus on the benefits of the X-trans was welcome.

It would perhaps be nice to ask what the Photographer usually uses as a camera, and perhaps whether she/he would consider replacing it with the tested unit.

Finally, having a small camera that can go large physically when needed gives the best of both worlds in my book. I like the grip on my GH4 for this very reason.

Kevylloyd: Great video, as was the Nx1 video. Samsung must have been thrilled for the exposure as I'd imagine Nikon are pretty happy too.
Made me even more glad I bought the D810 recently which has similar abilities.
As with this camera, the outside looks like a D610/D800 (read :last gen camera) , but the refinements really boost the operability.
Keep it up, though I wonder what a video like this would do to a camera's reputation, if the camera was poor?

Cheers

Calm down. I'm not asking for a change in appearance design, I'm writing about how the changes are not immediately obvious.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review preview (475 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kevylloyd: What about focus speed in low light ?(better than any other camera I've used). What about focus speed with none dfd capable lenses? Still very fast from what I've read elsewhere. Ok so DFD might not be all that you expected per Pany's claims, but regardless I'd be surprised if many mirrorless cameras are as fast in aquisition.
The AF performance section of this review seems to be unbalanced and lacking in breadth in my opinion. Perhaps you cover these points elsewhere in the review to some degree, but why not in the AF section?

Otherwise thanks for the review, I love mine for fast, silent, low light shooting especially combined with the stabilized F1.2 Noctiocron!

The tracking was already shown to have been tested...

Interesting visuals.
Just a small comment, I think "Bullet time" came from Max Payne, no?

I appreciate the multiple mentions of the possible "ok button" setting on this model, as a reminder to Nikon to add the same functionality to my D600 in a firmware update (please!).

On Fujifilm X100S preview (218 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kevylloyd: The image of the "menu/ok" button on page 2 appears to be from the X100 rather than X100S notable by the word "drive" (missing on the X100s and replaced with "AF")
I'm hoping this signifies swift AF point selection may now be possible.

On the promo video you can see the word drive is missing with AF in it's place. The "Fuji guys" mention more saying the AF button on the left is used to change the drive mode, and AF has been moved to the control dial. Great news!

Contrast, flare and vignetting amongst other aspects still to be considered, but I doubt they are "bad", and the price is certainly good.
