Theelderkeynes: To my aged eyes these look like typical Panasonic colour balance and rendering, in other words, again to my eyes, dull. Others may have a different view. I switched to Fuji and the results are stunning. I'm getting the sort of image quality I thought I would never see again after I sold my Sigma DP2. I think Fuji have acquired the classical European colour palette and it works. There, that should set the cat among the pigeons....

"aged eyes 👀"

Or just fantastical magical made up mystical opinions to justify the purchase of a different brand?

utomo99: Kickstarter better to refund the money. It already too long to wait. And no clear progress

We would hope so but sadly that's not how Kickstarter works.

With Kickstarter - you are only funding "the attempt to make the product"..... Not a completed finish result.

Kickstarter is responsible for tens of thousands of failed projects without refunds.

Fingers crossed.

Spectro: I do make a few videos here and there for fun. But to be honest I don't care too much about the spec. I shoot 4k and whatever log. Use davinci resolve. I haven't even logged into my YouTube video accounts and nice last year. I did get a gimbal, I learn early if you move a lot, you have to get in it. Files are huge too.

Ok so?

On article Atomos brings EOS R5 8K ProRes RAW to its NinjaV+ (95 comments in total)
In reply to:

(unknown member): 4K with Ninja V was able to record for over an hour straight. And it used the processor for oversaming 8K to 4K which is fairly intensive.

Since this will hardly use the CPU and won't use the card port (the bigger overheating culprit), recording should be unlimited.

So 8K RAW unlimited for less than 8K 4:2:0 cameras. Panasonic still has 6K RAW with more video centric features. So the S1H and R5 are by far the best options for video at their price point.

Almont forgot. No camera on the market can match the R5 video AF.

Tracking for video you are correct.

And I suppose that actually gives another edge to the cannon because in stills that extra resolution is godly.

Wrong. I own the R5.

It's sharp no doubt.

But the dynamic range is below that of Sony A7smk3 and FX3 and it still exhibits a lot more rolling shutter which is very very disappointing.

And the Sony auto focus is no slouch.... Animal tracking it is superior and fast moving sports it's very very sticky. Toss up. S-Cinetone color on the Sony's is also near faultless for quick turnaround productions. Very cinematic.

That being said you are correct about the video features like wave forms etc and open gate shooting are excellent on the Panasonic s1h.

I rented the Panasonic last week knowing that I didn't need reliable autofocus and it was a blast to use.

Cheers

onlyfreeman: A phone that flips open to be the same size as a typical phone makes no sense to me, is it for people with really small pockets?

The bulge is actually even bigger because of it's thickness

Watch the videos and it looks like people have a pack of chewing tobacco in their pockets

BeefCoffee: I saved a bunch of money buying only used phones for the past couple of years (and only because I was breaking the previous ones). I was able to eventually buy one of the watches I've been lusting, previously thinking it was unobtainable. Funny how things work out.

Funny how that has absolutely nothing to do with Samsung's announcements of the fold and flip.

brownie314: Wow - I am not loving the colors. I know - this is personal taste. But - they do not look good to me. Like - slightly greenish to my eye.

Nah. They are fine.

txsizzler: Just curious why people are bashing on Canon with this supposed 24mpx sensor. You do realize that this may have been shot with a RAW small or medium size? It’s amazing how many folks will latch on to these tid-bits of info that may have not any realistic bearing to what the actual specs are.

And if it is 24mpx sensor, who is to say that the other specs on the camera just don’t absolutely blow every other camera out of the water?

+1

This camera is welcome competition in the marketplace and this sensor and camera combo is likely to be so well-rounded with so few weaknesses that complaining is really just for amateurs who don't understand how to use a tool like this professionally.

peterwgallagher: I guess others must have mentioned this (but I can't find it). In the "Studio Scene" (stills) the lens(?) on this camera apparently fails to deliver anywhere near sharp focus on the center bottom (3 bottles). Is this a real fault or an apparent one?

Whoa 😳 you are right!

xander18: As a happy A9 user, I really think that when sports/motorsport photographers try a mirrorless camera with blackout free burst shooting they'll never want to go back. It's just a game changing feature IMO and it's hard to even explain how good it is until you try it. I'm just glad to see more options in this category, competition makes everyone better!

?

Steve Anderson stay on topic

There is NOOOO blackout on an a9

None. You have obviously never used the camera.

No DSLR can compare.

Agreed.

For sports and wildlife shooters out in the field constantly in the lack of blackout is a very relaxing stress-free experience.

nickolas84: Imagine a collaboration with Fuji bringing this tech to the GFX100.
I would pay 6K for that! Many would!

Fuji is large format and apsc

And their large format is already $6k

1971_M5: I'm no expert, but I'm finding that Windows 10 is becoming less stable these days when paired with the latest very high-end CPU's.

Wrong.

Although you are correct in mentioning that you are not an expert.

Wordfool: It may only be a small thing, but I'm still blown away by the fact that high-end laptops like these STILL only have a 720p webcam (and usually a bad one at that). Sure, I try to use an external webcam (Brio), but it's not always possible when on the road and being stuck with a potato cam image on a zoom call with a client is a bit embarrassing! When oh when are manufacturers going to start offering decent 1080p webcams at a minimum?! HP gives us a Dreamcolor display but a dudcolor webcam.

Use an external cam like you mentioned or convert your phone into a webcam. (Lots of easy to follow articles online)

Both options are vastly superior to anything built into a laptop anyway.

Not difficult.

LiangMing: I need a big monitor, so laptop is not going to be enough.

Nearly every laptop in the world - including these mentioned in the article - can be plugged into a big monitor or TV.

D_imagist: ...As a Sony user I hate it when all you hear about is their bad "color science".
-But, Damn. Great. Color. Here.
-There's a warm (but accurate) subtlety. Even the contrast seems smoother if you know what I mean.
Anyway, I got too many lenses to switch and there's no such thing as cheap Z glass (yet)!

Capture one pro

Problem solved
