santamonica812: Just curious. What sort of idiot would make a camera that does not have the ability to add memory? And what moron would do this for a camera that will gobble up memory with really nice cameras as the main draw of the Ultra? This is really mystifying.

Who would be dumb enough to buy this? I'm just not seeing the market? Maybe there are enough beginning-level photographers??? I dunno.

Shouldn't you ask Apple that question?

mick232: How long till it overheats during 8K recording?

Storage limited 8k

Please correct the mistake: Ultra has microSD

Note Ultra has the same camera module as S20 Ultra, with slow AF.
Regular Note has a better camera, but no microSD and no IP rating.

To me that means S20+ is still the best Samsung has to offer.

Max Iso: Im trying to think the last time i saw a Hollywood scene that was 20 minutes straight. Most youtube videos i watch are not 20 minutes long, and definitely not a single take. Even DPR video reviews are cut into pieces, whether recorded as a whole then doesn't matter.

Most of the uses i have seen people wanting higher IQ video, continuous video doesn't seem to be mandatory, so what's the problem here? I think some people just love to hate Canon.

Yep. It looks like the best FF camera for video is still Panasonic SH1

Since everyone is testing recording limits now, I did a little test of my own.
Samsung Galaxy S20+ records 42 minutes of 8k video straight.

According to Jordan overheating was a problem exactly in making of dpreview tv episode

OK, let's wait until Canon makes R1C - new generation of 1DC, designed for video first and foremost, with no recording limit.

DuxX: Great camera body, fantastic AF with many features aaaand worst lens line-up on the market today... pity.
But for couple of years when smaller and lighter pro f1.4 primes come this will be excellent system. Till that I am going to another brand.

Wait for third party to catch up. APO Lanthar lenses are amazing, and no issues ever with firmware and AF - no firmware, no AF.

Melindra: Why didn't you record the guests audio also, on a seperate lav going to an audio recorder?

Seems like a strange decision for a video camera review by a video guy (Jordan).

For fun mostly, judging from the video

Remember Canon 1DC? The first 4k DSLR.

It is a huge camera with big heatsink, designed primarily for video. Perhaps Canon should do the same here. Create a huge RF camera with R5 sensor, with integrated grip and really big heatsink, and active cooling to boot. And that would be camera for hybrid shooters, while R5 mostly for stills with occasional video.

Great camera.

And I really like video output from R6.

Paul_Takes_Photos: I don't see the point. If you are going to use film, get the full experience with an old SLR or rangefinder (had a blast with a Leica 3). Otherwise do the environment and your pocket book a favor, and use your iPhone.

Agfa Isolette II. Pocketable medium format, no batteries to worry about. And old Rolleiflex TLR, one of the best cameras ever made.

As for lightmeter - I'm using Galaxy S20+, there are tons of apps for that purpose, works well enough even for slide film.

Skeeterbytes: What price nostalgia? I can't explain why the prime lens Contax T series go for higher prices than the zoom TVS models, since those cost more in the day, but they present an alternative path for anybody wanting a titanium-clad Zeiss-lens film compact.

The T3 was my go-to pocketable camera when I didn't wish to tote an SLR or rangefinder and the lens is so good that it gives up literally nothing in image quality to its larger cousins. But the price they fetch today is mindboggling and I can't explain how it has become such a desirable bit of camera nostalgia. Olympus, Ricoh, Rollei, Nikon, Canon all made quality competitors and I'd be happy to have a clean copy of their better models for a little of that film experience.

If you feel T3 is expensive - try Leica CM compact camera

Andrey K: According to test by Dan Watson in some real life situations Sony overheats faster than Canon.

For long shooting you'll want to have Panasonic with active cooling or cine camera.

As someone who have recorded live performances for hours (and tested equipment for hours before that in the same conditions) I would repeat:
For long shooting you'll want to have Panasonic SH1 with active cooling or cine camera.

Gesture: That's all well and good. Why not use a camcorder or proper cinema camera?

And I'm not sure cine camera would have AF as good.

Funny Valentine: What is worse ?? a camera with a big mount and small sensor (m43), or a camera with a big sensor and a tiny mount ( sony e-mount) ?
M43 died because it reached the limit of its sensor size capabilities. Sony is already reaching the limit of the e-mount because of its tiny size.

I suppose we all shall be going with Fuji G mount then? To avoid small mounts and puny small format sensors? It is often forgot that so-called FF us a small format.

Andrey K: Small and light sports and wildlife system makes sense. But new sensor and reliable subject tracking are essential for survival of such a system.

You shouldn't use subject tracking, high ISO, and you shouldn't expect dynamic range on par with FF sensors. Out of this list subject tracking disadvantage is not inevitable for smaller sensor.
