How do you know lens is inside if they didn't leave the parcel?

Looks comfortable to hold in hand like any other E-mount camera.

”Changing photography.” The only reason why they exist is cheap 4k.

Maybe. But they are more interested in a ratio between video resolution and price. They already asking for $999 8K camera.

That 12-32mm lens is horrible idea. It is 64mm f11. Like compact camera. G7X has f7.6 at 64mm. And you have f7.6 all the way to the 100mm. Same story with wide angle. 24mm f7 vs 24mm f4.9.

The difference is that Canon receives money from the photographers and then they go to sports events and use 400mm f2.8. And Sony has to give them body, a vertical grip for the uncomfortable camera body, lens, and money to convince them to use 400mm f2.8.

They somehow make Alexa footage looks horrible. Probably to match easily with Sony.

I read in some YouTube comment that Canon is dead and bad for video.

Kiril Karaatanasov: This is showing units sold not revenue or profit. Canon is probably doing fine but the for the rest the picture may be different if you look at financials vs. units shipped.

For example Sony lacks entry models so 20% of mirror-less is probably way more profitable than the Canon share. On the other end Nikon may be squeezed on the DSLR side having to compete with both Canon and Sony in the premium segment.

Panasonic and Sony can easily lose money on cameras, because they are pushing 4k for they own reasons. Canon doesn’t have to to that. Canon have realistic prices while Sony and Panasonic going too low to push sales of their 4k TVs and that’s why they are probably loosing money on a6500 or GH5.

Nobody really thinks Canon makes bad products. So many people talking how Canon is dead just because they want to buy 1D X Mark II for $999. Happily,
there are still realistic people in the world.

escapewheel: After using nearly every mirrorless system (okay, except for Sigma), I've found the EOS-M system to be best all-around *for my purposes*. Compact, great user interface, logically placed controls, Canon colors, very good video output. Master of none, highly capable at most everything. Slap on the EF adapter and your options are unlimited; use the 15-45 or 22 f2 if you want to go super compact. I used to be one who scoffed at the on-paper specs of the M line, but in every day use it's a winner.

Thats the theory. In real life you need colors, white balance that wont be easily confused with unusual light sources, good highliths falloff, not oversharpned skin (like every panasonic ever) and Canon is still superior when it comes to this elemets that makes video good for real life and real people. You must be ridiculous if you think that GH5 can produce better video then C100. In best case you can be color blind to claim that.

You cannot be serious Photato with that comment. Bitrate and even resolution doesn't have to do anything with video quality. Canon C100 only has 24mbit bitrate and better quality than any Panasonic, including GH5 at any resoltuion, bitrate or profile setup. Canon is still used by most people when it comes to video, for the reason. There are many people still interesting in overall look of the video and not the camera specs or details of some branches at 400% zoom. Most people are going to get better video out of M6 then any Panasonic. You have to be really skillful to make video with Panasonic or Sony not look like zombie apocalypse.

tinzi1: If Ronin-S provide 4 stops of vibration reduction to a DSLR camera, and the lens itself has 4 stops vibration reduction, does the combination provides approximately 7-8 stops of vibration reduction or things don't add up this way?

Doesn’t work that way. Often you should turn off any stabilization to get usable footage with camera on gimbal.

On article Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark III review (606 comments in total)

They wanted APS-C in compact body to sounds good, but actually G7X (Mark II) is still best choice if you are interesting to make some nice bokeh out of pocket. And G7X (II) you can put even in you jeans pocket. No doubt on the other hand that G1X III will be faster camera, especially compared to first generation of G7X.

G7X advantage to Sony and Panasonic is noticeable if we are talking about equiv. 75mm vs 100mm in terms of blurring background. And LX100 is just 30% larger then 1" cameras, but the same size compared to G1X III and could be better choice then G1X Mark III, but I never liked mine LX100.

M100 with 15-45mm is literally same camera as G1X Mark III for half the price. But still recommending G7X (II) if you are interesting in small camera that can produce big camera results as close as possible.

Ignore my post is you are using electronic viewfinder.

You forget to mention that M6 (and G1X III) has best colors, most accurate white balance, most pleasant highlights, not oversharpned/overconstrast picture - which is important for video shoot people. All of this is more important for video than 4k.

The Squire: What no 4K?

There is nothing wrong with 4K. Problem is, as you said, penalizing camera not having 4K because they do not understand other elements of video quality. More important than resolution are colors, dynamic range in highlights (more important than "lets lift shadows and see noise"), highlights fallow, skin reproduction (without strange contrast and sharpening), other lens characteristics (not so much sharpness, but bokeh and color tint). But you have to be experienced to see and understand this elements and if you don't you can talk about resolution, because resolution is easier to understand and that way you are hiding that you don't have huge video background.

"Lets use camera with highest resolution." Says nobody ever in Hollywood. If they do not put resolution on first place and even use some comically soft lenses, how do we know better then them what makes video looks good?

In reply to:

Branko Mitic: You cannot mark only LX10 lens green in the table when you have chart just little below where is shown that G7X Mark II has the best lens. Generally G7X and G7X Mark II have the best lens in this 1" battle. 100mm f2.8 makes all the difference for making this cameras replacement for aps-c+kit combination. LX10 has the better lens then G7X (Mark II) only from 24-27mm and then worse from 27-72mm and then not at all range from 72-100mm. All of this cameras looks like cell phone on 24/28mm, no matter do you use f1.4, f1.8 or less, but when you zoom in for portrait you are getting separation from cell phone and actually there is significant difference between 75mm f2.8 and 100mm f2.8 in terms of bokeh.

You have to count that Sony and Panasonic doing too much sharpening even on RAW files and that why Canon looks softer.
