The key is to know your equipment and to practice before hand. Learn what can go wrong before it really matters.

mpgxsvcd: If the subject is stationary in good light can't you just shoot a bunch of 20 Megapixel images of it and make a 10,000 Megapixel image?

For $2.5 million, yes absolutely I want to see the bacteria on the car so I can get it off.

"those desperate to buy the camera do have other options." Like Sony, Panasonic..... etc

I find it interesting that they shoot the car with a $50,000 100 Megapixel camera and then upload the video in 1080p. The Panasonic GH5 can shoot 4K @ 59.94 FPS HDR for $2000. Such a waste.

Was anyone else not that impressed by the Red and actually a little surprised that a $50 camcorder even exists?

They used the wrong $50 camera. There are much better options than that in that price range.

On article Blackmagic Video Assist 4K review (24 comments in total)

Good thing my GH5 can record 4k/UHD @ 30 FPS 10 BIT 4:2:2 internally and in a few weeks it will be 400 mb/sec ALL-I. It even does 4k/UHD @ 60 FPS 8 BIT 4:2:0.

It really is incredible how many features they packed into the GH5 and still kept its price under $2000.

Just curious what advantages time lapse has over video?

On article Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 Review (1180 comments in total)

The specs say that the camera can shoot 48 FPS. However, I have not found any way to make it shoot 48 FPS with sound. Is there an error in the review?

Sarah Terra: 5 years and 100k fine seems appropriate

Those 5 years would probably cost taxpayers at least $100K a year. I say 30 days in jail and a $500,000 fine is a more productive punishment.

Tiny is not the word I would have used to describe that camera.

No matter what we say about it loads of people will buy this camera. They will think they bought the latest and greatest in camera technology simply because Canon is all they know.

Those people probably will be satisfied with the pictures and photos they get from it. It is a capable camera that can produce great results in the right hands.

Canon really has figured out the market. They know that most people HATE doing research on electronics. They know that most consumers just ask their friends what to buy or they watch a YouTube video about it.

Most people aren't here on Dpreview at 5:00 AM for release day making fun of Canon's latest half hearted effort. Canon knows this so they will continue their trend of making modest upgrades year after year as the competition continues to run circles around them.

This will be a fine camera that many people will produce extraordinary footage with. For what it does the price seems appropriate. If I could afford that price range I know I could produce amazing things with it.

Rishi is my hero. Great job as always finding out the truth about these cameras. The A9 has some limitations but speed isn't one of them.

Isn't that just a fancy way of saying "Program Priority mode"?

My doctor prescribed a Red Weapon for footageitis but unfortunately insurance denied the claim.

On article How would you improve the Panasonic GH5? (16 comments in total)

This guy claims that most of these things can easily be done with a firmware update. In most cases I highly doubt that is true.

Auto Focus during Slow motion has never been done with Panasonic cameras so I doubt there is an easy fix there.

Also the focus zoom in feature probably has some limitations that cause it to not be an option during filming. He even mentions some of the reasons why it may not be desirable.

His arguments about wanting audio for slow motion video aren’t really that practical. The audio would be slowed down and not very useful.

If you use the AVC-HD codec then it offers the very low bit rates that he requires for some reason. I am not sure why he couldn’t figure that out on his own.

The ISO display with Auto ISO would be nice. It does it with stills so it should be able to do it with video as well.

His battery grip problems can be mostly solved with the battery grip setting. Not sure why he didn’t explore that setting in more detail.
