mpgxsvcd: Is the G9 limited to SDR50(50 MB/sec) with UHS-I SD cards like the GH5 is?

@stevedo

Where in the article does it mention whether UHS-I cards are limited to less than their full potential? We all know how UHS-II cards will work with this camera. The question is whether UHS-I cards will be artificially limited in this camera like they are in the GH5.

That price is just too much to handle. It won't sell in any significant quantities at $3000.

Can the super high resolution stills mode be used handheld or does the camera have to be on a tripod?

They should offer the super high resolution mode on the GH5 as a paid upgrade.

What is with all the random numbers that appear throughout the article? Is it some kind of code we need to crack?

Not a big deal. However, the sentence "there's no essentially no difference between shooting at" in the dynamic range testing page should be corrected. I believe it should be "there's essentially no difference between shooting at".

You had me at "Dynamic Range".

If you can't take great pictures and videos with this camera then I doubt any other camera will magically change that fact.

Most people will have no idea how to get the most out of these new features. In addition they can't possibly conceive of how much time, money, and effort shooting in anamorphic or HDR takes.

These new features are fantastic but they will be misused and abused by the people that don't fully understand them.

BeaverTerror: I'm a climber. A $500 camera that I expect to get smashed off my helmet over a cliff at any moment. Nice.

Do you get hit in the head a lot as a "climber"?

Akgbkd: But will our current display technology be able to reproduce all those colours???

Dolby Vision calibrated displays can but the real high end ones cost many tens of thousands of dollars.

What bit depth and color space does it shoot with?

I always think "This is going to be the end of Hasselblad" after reading their press releases and somehow they always keep on chugging along.

I have never personally met someone who could afford one of their cameras and actually wanted to buy one. However, there must be some of those people put there somewhere.

Keep on, keeping on, I guess.

mpgxsvcd: How does BIT depth increase Dynamic Range if it is not capturing any more data?

Richard,

Thank you for your response. That makes perfect sense and I am afraid it is what so many people are missing.

Too many people claim that simply by using Vlog-L with the GH5 they automatically get 12 stops of dynamic range no matter what any of the conditions are or what other settings they use.

Yes V-Log L is capable of retaining 12 stops of dynamic range but it is very questionable whether the GH5 can capture 12 usable stops of dynamic range.

Something the article doesn’t mention is that if the scene you are taking a picture of doesn’t have 12 stops of dynamic range in it then it really doesn’t matter at all if your bit depth is 12 or 14 bits.

I see a lot of people take a simple landscape picture and say it has lots of dynamic range. However, when you look at the histogram of it neither side is anywhere near the edges of the histogram.

Probably the single most informative article I have encountered here on Dpreview. Excellent job on this article Richard.

mpgxsvcd: That says V10 on that card. That isn't fast enough for any of the current cameras. Even the original GoPro cameras needed more than V10. V30 is the bare minimum for today's needs.

720p requires more than V10.
