Something I would find really difficult to shoot cinema with the GFX 100 system would be it’s pretty aggressive rolling shutter. Personally that’s my least favourite after chromatic aberration to deal with in motion work. Going handheld with the camera on your shoulder is just too much fun to have to worry about panning the camera too fast while shooting

Chris you sound experienced. I'm not. Certainly I'm not in movie making

Whip Pan as explained in this video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhYvs7rrGnw

would highlight rolling shutter of Gfx100.

Yet Whip Pan is used in action films, fast paced scenes, FX transitions.

So many thousands of films don't fast Whip Pan, hence rolling shutter on GFx becomes moot in these thousands of films.

Is the entirety of your insight here based on watching that video?

Could there be camera movements slower than a whip pan that might cause visible rolling shutter issues or do you believe the whip pan is the only potential trouble spot?

Doppler that was quite amusing. You made me smile. Also forumees jumping to give your comment likes makes me smile.

An observation thousands of films dont require such movements as whip pan nor somewhat slower panning than whip pan.

In which instance rolling shutter becomes moot whether on GFx or A7xx Rx Sx XTx Zx.
