About me:

I am a Hunt's photo camera consultant, and a freelance videographer, currently shooting on the Lumix GH5S. I pretty much eat and breathe cameras, so when I drop a comment it comes with the weight of actual knowledge (and perhaps some subjective opinion, but that only comes from experience)

I’m sorry exactly WHO is going to be using Sony glass on mirrorless?? The random buyer who owns both systems and wants to experiment???

SteveCooper: Isn't Nikon going to add 10 bit V-log in a FREE firmware update? So Panasonic is already announcing they are going to charge for an update on a camera they haven't even started shipping yet? That is ridiculous, especially at the prices they are going to charge for these new cameras.

Sorry, Fuji has F Log.
Nikon has N Log. Duh.

Just so everyone is aware...V Log pertains ONLY to Panasonic.
Nikon has F Log,
Canon has C Log,
Sony has S Log.

So no. Every company cannot have V Log. :p

Having your own raw format is great, but I don't think removing CinemaDNG was the right move...I mean that is THE universal raw format for cinema cameras.

Man that's some impressive dynamic range from an older camera!

If anyone wants to buy it, I have an EXCLUSIVE Lumix model available for sale.

I call it the FZ999...

Its the same thing as the FZ1000 except there's a piece of gaff tape where the hotshoe used to be :p

As a video shooter, I was curious to see if either of these models would offer anything (besides sensor size) to cause me to to switch from my GH5S. I am pleased to say there is nothing here that interests me, aside from the full fledge V-log, but even then...no internal 10bit 422 is kind of sad.

Combine that with a completely new lens mount, of which there are no other options on the market yet, and I will be waiting to see what further generations hold.

But cheers to you Lumix! Taking the FF mirrorless market in stride!

Looks like they're taking a page from Leica's lens design...

On article Sigma 40mm F1.4 Art sample gallery (248 comments in total)

People are complaining about the size and weight...

Has anyone ever used a Zeiss Otus before? Do you know how freaking huge those are?
Sigma has blessed us with affordable lenses that are tack sharp wide open for half the cost, and they are solidly built.

Don't like it? Don't buy it.

In reply to:

Bassman2003: I watched the video in 1080p on my 1080p computer monitor. I think the video is nice but 16k? Meh. Looks the same as if it was shot in 4k/good 1080p.

In my view, 4k is all that is needed for quite some time. Lets focus on other image improvements outside of resolution.

Can't image the encoding times for 16k footage. 4k already gives current CPUs all they can handle.

Same. I also can't fathom the bandwidth speeds needed to stream 16k. Cool? Yes. Practical? Hell no.

Its funny I'm a videographer and shoot with a GH5S. I haven't even started to shoot at the higher bitrate 4k yet, my computer would die.

In reply to:

LeDatas: The design of the body feels brutalist and blocky, all the way down to the chosen font. I hope they refine it before release.

Otherwise, I'm sure it'll be a great camera.

Have you ever picked up a G9? Its pretty much the same body, and if you've picked one up you'll understand how comfortable they are to hold. The font is the same its always been, so if looks predicate your camera buying decision, idk what to tell you...

My only trepidation with this is the autofocus system. We already know it is not nearly as reliable in continuous as Canon or Sony...I'm not sure why Panasonic continues to use this depth from defocus, contrast based system as opposed to phase detection or dual pixel AF. Seeing as how it works on the smaller m4/3 sensors, I really hope they've improved it on these newer, larger sensors.

In reply to:

Chris2210: I was one of those initially hooked into the system [alongside my DSLRs] with the GF1. It was a bit of a classic even though now its performance [just 12mp and unacceptably noisy by the time you got to around ISO1600] looks dated. Mine got nicked along with a few other things, but I have plenty of other MfT bodies. I suppose the 'spiritual successor' is something between the GX[8] (why did they hobble the successor? - market placement) and the GM5. I managed to pick up one cheap about 18 months ago and it's till one of my favourite cameras in spite of the inevitable compromises. It's too small unless you want something very portable or very discreet - but isn't that one of the strengths of the format? With the clever Panasonic push-dial it is surprisingly controllable and its low res, low mag EVF and short battery life are reasonable prices to pay.

GM line, please come back!

Yesss!!! I've been on the hunt for the fabled red GM5 to pair with my Olypmus 45mm 1.8 as the ultimate street portrait combo!

In reply to:

TechDev1: This will be a great addition to my bag. I have a nice Fuji kit with their 100-400mm and both the 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters but there is an eagle refuge that is just out of reach of the Fuji. I currently own the P900 and that brings the eagle nests closer but still not perfect. This camera should easily let me see what is going on in the trees and take some decent pics if it is anything like the P900. Probably not salable but not all of us got into photography for money. Some of us just like the challenge and to have friends ooh and aah over our toils. So viewed as a super long range lens replacement the P1000 is a great buy.

"Hey that's a nice camera sack you got there..."

LMAO!!!!
