Re: Best Cameras for Videographers (DPReview): the S1H, But...

Can't speak for the people at dpreview. They may have written the article some time back and only just published it recently.

Yes, the S5 makes it pretty difficult for most people to justify buying an S1H. I guess if you want to shoot a Netflix ORIGINAL* series, then you are going to need an S1H. Maybe that will change with the ability to export 5.9K ProRes RAW from the S5???

Dpreview probably also gave some consideration to the recording limit in 10-bit on the S5 . And as LuxShots pointed out, the data rate for high speed recording on the S5 (and the S1) is pretty low, and is not as good in quality as the high speed rates in the S5.

I know a lot of people won't care about those difference, but I guess those people who are shooting video for a living MIGHT care about them.

*For those who don't understand the netflix requirements, if you are going to be shooting for netflix in which Netflix will be doing the ones editing and coloring the video, it has to match certain format requirements. I think one requirement is that it it is ALL-I. If, on the other hand, you have a completed project and just want to sell it to netflix, I don't know if their requirements are so stringent.
