0 Panasonic G85 review – is there any need to get an Olympus E-M1 Mark II for video?

Micro Four Thirds is increasingly going up-market and into pro territory, and unfortunately new Panasonic and Olympus cameras are getting more and more expensive by the day. Thankfully the G85 is a pro camera without a pro price – it represents a genuine advance over the Panasonic GH4 with cleaner low light performance, better automatic white balance and of course 5 axis in-body stabilisation.

0 DPReview introduce sponsored content from Canon – truly disappointing!

As regular followers will know, I used to write for a respected authority on digital cameras, DPReview. One of the first sites I read for camera reviews back in 2001 when DSLRs were first coming onto the market. As a contributor for 3 years between 2012 and 2015, I wrote pages about video for some of their camera reviews starting with the Canon 5D Mark III.

2 Olympus E-M1 II mini-review – a sign of things to come with the Panasonic GH5?

I got to play with the new Olympus E-M1 II today, a pro Micro Four Thirds camera they hope will sell for $2000. It certainly pulls out all the stops to imitate a miniature 1D X Mark II. This camera does NOT crop the sensor in 4K mode like the GH4. Instead, it over-samples from 5K down to 4K, using the full width of the sensor even with sensor-shift 5 axis stabilisation enabled.…

1 Time to sell your Sony A6300 already as A6500 arrives with 5 axis stabilisation and new menus!

New cameras from Sony! A6500 finally gets a touch screen for direct AF control RX100 V shoots 5K RAW 24p in 6 second bursts In a surprise announcement the Sony A6500 and Sony RX100 V have been launched today, coming off the back of zero rumours (for a change) these cameras were kept a secret, presumably because if A6300 owners knew their camera would be superseded WITHIN 6 months, nobody would have…

1 Sony seem to have botched their menu re-design

A-mount? 2x crop sensor? Both the Sony A99 II and Panasonic GH5 have a few aspects which look out of place in the high end market of 2016. However sometimes the most simple things are the problem. Sony’s re-designed menus have white balance on page 10/12.

0 Updated: Canon XC15 to be announced with a breakout audio port – but what else is new?

Comment on the forum Update: Rather an an SDI port, it seems the XC15 is set to feature an audio connector for a set of XLR jacks on a top grip accessory which slots into the hot-shoe similar to the C300. The larger hot-shoe has been redesigned with a screw-thread, again another hint the update is all about accommodating a handle with XLRs. With a camera so ripe for a change,…

2 Panasonic GH5 rumours point to 10bit 4:2:2 internal codec

The first reliable rumours are coming in about the GH5. According to 43Rumors it will not be ready for Photokina, instead we might be looking at an early 2017 release date. They also appear to be confident about two other aspects – no extra crop of the sensor when shooting 4K and the codec has been bumped up to 10bit 4:2:2 internally!

2 An adventure into the Panasonic GX85/80 begins – and a look at the Leica Nocticron for Micro Four Thirds

The camera which Panasonic can’t decide what to call (GX80 in Europe, GX85 in the US and GX7 Mark II in Japan!) really excites me. It’s the first time that anyone has put 5 axis in-body stabilisation in a 4K camera which exceeds the performance of the stunningly good Olympus 5 axis system. It’s not quite as effective as a gimbal for sweeping handheld movement, but that pain-in-the-ass tripod you can certainly dispense…
