Christian Unger: Would be interesting to know what's the crop factor in 16:9 or 21:9
If it uses the full image circle that would be a big deal.

Probably as before …. 3840* 1644 in video

b00mer: a new fullframe alpha at 33 mp that takes raw 14bit 8k stills in short bursts at up to 30fps for post image selection, capturing the one you never saw

For 8 k , 33mp the sensor must be in 16:9 format

It seems like it is a New line of Camera.
A9m2 was released 1.5 years ago and has the fastest readoutspeed of sensor. So no need to compete there .

A7S3 they released for video.

So what are they targeting?

Canon R5/R6 ?

It seems like the sensor is not the same as in S1.

Look at the Raw DR: Exposure Latitude samples and compare S1 and S5 at +6EV the S1 is way better in this case.

PortraitLover: what exactly is that sensor size on the iphone 12, 1/1.7 ?

Only on 12 pro Max all other 12's have smaller sensor

Dolby Vision on the iPhone 12 has some compatibility problems.
The iPhone 12 shoots video in a newer version of Dolby Vision called Profile 8.4 that’s built on a standard called HLG, or hybrid log-gamma.
All this means that an iPhone 12 HDR video is a 10-bit HLG file with additional Dolby Vision metadata on top.
There’s a catch. (Of course.) Dolby Vision Profile 8.4 is a new version of Dolby Vision, and that means a bunch of older Dolby Vision gear out there needs to be updated to support it. So I can’t promise you any random Dolby Vision TV with AirPlay 2 will play back iPhone 12 Pro video in Dolby Vision. You’ll have to check to see if your TV supports Profile 8.4.

8 bit video and the old menu system? That is protective behavior.

The LUMIX S5’s Dual Native ISOs are 640 and 4000[*1].

*1. When recording mode is set to V-Log. The sensitivity varies depending on the recording mode.

So DUAL ISO are only available in videomode?

Noah M: While just a kit lens, the 20-60mm kit lens makes a lot more sense for video than most other lenses. Often 24mm isn't wide enough and so you end up buying two lenses and spending a lot more for basic video.

Panasonic seems to understand video with ILCs a lot more than anyone else.

20-60 is great but the 4k60p option on this camera is from APS-C crop and that makes lens 30-90mm

Raynaud: So how can this camera shoot 4K video when the digital zoom is at a low 1.2x or1.5x?
Not only do the Bayer sensors not have full 12 MP resolution, but with a 1.5 crop plus the 16:9 crop there won’t be anything close to 8MP for 4K. And obviously no over sampling for a more detailed video.

Meanwhile other new phones offer 8k. Now I doubt the resolution is really 33MP but it will still be at least 4x more than you get from this phone most of the time.

Those 8k videos are from the the center 7680x4320px portion of the sensor.
that area is tiny compared to "the hole sensor" so no benefit of that big sensor when doing 8k.
It would have been better to have 48mp on 1/1.33" instead and the crop for 8k had been much smaller and less zoom.

Higgins2002: I hope they do like Iphone 11 pro max when recording "4k60p HDR".
They use 120 fps, 1 frame exposed for highlight and 1 for shadows and then blend them together and the result is great dynamic range in 4k60p.

10 bit allow you to do more extreme editing than 8 bit.
But HDR10 and other HDR format is not easy to edit because you must have HDR monitor to edit and that's a big problem because they aren't cheap.

I don't know why you insist on HDR10 or HLG is some dealbreaker .
99% of the cameras doesn't have correct color direct out of camera and that makes the in-camera HDR totally useless if you don't have the possibility to edit such files .
That is why apples way of making an high dynamic range video straight out of camera is better because it's no problem to edit them.
In the beginning of my post I wished that Sony would do the same.
I'm not an Apple fan and I have Samsung S9 phone .

Go to youtube and search for this:
"iPhone 11 Pro vs 4K Video & 6K Cinema Camera!"
the one with Max Yuryev.
Watch it and you'll understand.

Those tiny sensors can't deliver good HLG or HDR10 and these are a pain to edit, if you want HLG or HDR 10 as output (you have to have a monitor that supports HLG,HDR10 to see what you are doing).
I'm dealing with HLG from my Panasonic and my Sony A7III and I'm only using it as a pictureprofile and then edit and output REC709 videos.
So the way iphone does it is the easiest way to get great DR in video.

s1oth1ovechunk: 50% more light?
1/1.7" is well over 100% more light than 1/2.55".

https://u01.appmifile.com/images/2019/11/08/4da816f3-aabc-49f1-b732-497930c474c0.jpg

I would have prefered 1/1.33" with 12 mp.
or 1/1.33" 48 mp quad bayer that could do 8k without cropping to much
