Wye Photography: People standing on train tracks have obviously gone off the rails.

Quite railing on them!

Internet Enzyme: I know this may be just me, but I think image quality is the most important factor to a camera. This is why I shoot only RAW. I will sacrifice convenience for image quality. I mean just look at how much sharper the video is on the a6500. The image is gorgeous. While the Panasonic is average 4K. The A6500 is even cheaper and has a super 35 sensor too. This has some nice features that the a6500 diesnt have, but most of them are ergonomics. Except fro the 4K 60p and 10 bit.

The A6500 would never be in my bag, IT OVER HEATS BIG TIME! Can't have a camera like that no matter how sharp it is! Plus, the GH5 has No overheating and No Time Limits! The GH5 will be a huge success for Panasonic and the Video Industry!

I have a Panasonic DVX200 Camera that is also M4/3 and shoots fantastic video, so the GH5 will be a great second camera to have with many of Panasonics other video cameras.

NoQuarter72388: $2.2 billion for having your picture taken? Seems fair. LOL?

Just curious, the face of a person has to be recognizable, correct? If you can't make out who they are, then there is no issue I would think.

gskolenda: Based on the body design, it looks lie this will be another Hot Brick, after 5 minutes of shooting 4K video! Just like the 6300! I'd stay away from this if your planning on shooting any interviews or longer video clips.

Mr. Stern, Did you read Jean's reply! Not a good choice for video, Too many better choices, like GH4 and upcoming GH5 Heck, My RX10II blows this out of the water!

To be honest here, This not a good beta video to see the different shots and film simulations. DPR, if your going to provide test video's of a camera then shoot the Same Subject, with different lens's and the different film simulations. They need to be side by side, not switch to a different subject and different lighting. From what little I can tell, it does look sharp, and some of the skin tones look nice.

On article D500 owner formally accuses Nikon of false advertising (473 comments in total)

Nikon needs to fix it, The D500 is suppose to be a state of the art camera, why have a ridiculous Wifi protocol, so different that does not work when the rest of the Camera world's Wifi is working fine. Poor, Poor marketing and engineering ! This company has had too many negatives with there products, and customer service and communications, for me to ever think about there products. Good Luck Nikon, you need to take a serious look at how you are perceived in the market.

gskolenda: I sure wish DPR would start posting the video specs, BIT RATES!!! What is the CONNECTIVITY! Microphone, Yes/No, Headphone Socket-Yes/No, HDMI-Yes/No, Wifi-Yes/No, Panasonic's just as bad, same with B&H! It seems nobody wants to post all the specs, because then it would reveal what some might think is a negative, and then be compared to their competition, Hello McFly! It's 2016, that's what we're going to do!

well I am doing the research, did not see the expanded part on Panasonic's site.
Hello DOTYMAN, Using your computer and looking up 3 different site qualify s for research to me.

The Sony RX-10 MII is a better camera for Video. F2.8 all the way through, and ND filters. 98% of Video is shot at Focal Lengths of wide to max of 200 mm. With the greater being under 100mm.

The Squire: Seriously doubting the need for a A6300 when this does so much at almost half the body-price...

The 6300 has major overheating problems when shooting video! Went thru that with the Nex-7. I like this GX85, might have to try it out.

In reply to:

Dbosch: RX10 II seems to have less noise, colour correct, no bleeding, darker blacks and sharper than RX10 III

See if your RX-10III has 2.8 all the way! See if your RX-10III has ND Filter!

Link | Posted on May 27, 2016 at 02:35 UTC

From a Video perspective, The RX-10 MII is a better camera. Just having the ND filter is big deal, I use it all the time.

Most Professional Video Business's Look at Adobe's CC as a complete bargain! Adobe provides Elements for the Non-Pro, Plus to do what a lot of professionals want, there is no competition for Adobe. Adobe knows that, but, they are making there software better and keeping up with the tech at a pretty good pace. I'm a small video business, but I view the $50.00 a month as a Small business right off. I can't complain, Adobe CC is working pretty good for my business.

Jaythomasni: First expensive camera from canon that is not made in Japan. This is from china, like an experimental knock off . and it shows In all respects.

I totally agree! Log is a lot of Marketing buzz, until we get 10 Bit 4.4.4 ! Or better yet, 12 Bit Raw at today's average DSLR pricing!

In reply to:

fatdeeman: All Panasonic need to do is a put a twisty hand grip on the GH4 and give it a ridiculously over the top bit rate to appease ignorant broadcasters who think bit rate and IQ are inseparable and they'd have themselves an XC10 killer with RAW photos and interchangeable lenses.

I'm not sure , but, I think having the high MBPS in post is not the only reason for it. I believe it also has something to do with the video signals MBPS is required to be high for Broadcast Transmission purpose's. A weak signal does not transmit and receive well.

In reply to:

gizmowiz: way too pricey for most of us folks. Perhaps if it had an ASPC sensor it would be worth it but with a 1" sensor no thanks.

I'll match the video OOC against most APSC DSLR's, except the NX1 any day, and you would never tell which one was the 1" sensor! It's that good! Read the reviews at B&H from the pros!

On article First sample images from 20MP Sony Cyber-shot RX10 III (194 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tieu Ngao: I'm waiting for the comparison between Sony RX10 III and Nikon DL24-500. On spec the Sony has longer reach 100mm and 1 stop faster lens at the telephoto end, but the Nikon has better AF and faster burst rate, which are probably more important in sports/wildlife photography. Nikon is also smaller, lighter and $500 cheaper. Personally I'd go for the Nikon if the IQ is similar (I like Nikon color & the menu system better).

The FZ1000 is total crap compared to Any RX-10. I tried that camera, returned it after a week. SOOooo cheap feeling. Hard to beat Ziess Glass.
