Reports in the media suggest Panasonic are dismantling the ‘digital camera’ division with some even speculating that Panasonic will pull out of the camera market like Samsung. In fact according to Yosuke Yamane of Panasonic, the company is re-doubling their focus on cameras like the GH5 and planning more releases in 2017.

Comment on the forum Over 200 Veydra Mini Primes were stolen last night in California. Be vigilant when out shopping for lenses especially on eBay. Help Veydra recover and get their stock back!
Comment on the forum Last week I decided to look into Cinema5D’s claim that the Panasonic GH5 was “unusable”. Claims the camera outputs faulty 10bit footage,with huge chunks of missing bit-depth – can we believe that? Now they have responded.
Forever I have been patiently waiting for Blackmagic to give us a sequel to the great story of 2013, where a man called Grant pioneered affordable RAW video for enthusiasts, DSLR shooters and consumers. A huge market. Since the BMCC and Pocket Cinema Camera however they have only focussed on pros. A big pity.
Comment on the forum Cinema5D have put the Panasonic GH5 on test, with a few charts and have some harsh words for the new 10bit mirrorless camera. I just don’t agree with much of their criticism.

Mattias Burling on the EOSHD Forum is giving us his impressions of the new Kipon / BavEyes medium format focal reducer for Sony’s full frame cameras. If all goes well, this will give the prized medium format look on full frame.
The Panasonic GH5 is now officially announced after the Photokina preview phase. Shipping starts end of March 2017 and now Panasonic have released all the details of the camera. Some of it a little bit controversial.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQXg38qaRuY Sample footage! You asked for it! It seems I have well and truly found a way to fix Sony’s colour for both video and JPEGs. Here I’ve narrated a 20 minute video, and in it we see the difference EOSHD Pro Color makes to Sony’s colour science
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.
Introducing EOSHD Pro Color EOSHD Pro Color is a highly optimised in-camera profile for your Sony camera, to deliver punchy Canon-like 4K and 1080p straight out of camera. Dump the default settings and fix a host of colour issues. Apply once. Shoot. These colour correction settings are easy to apply and fundamentally change the image processor’s approach to color and white balance, lending an artists’s eye to the camera and the way it handles ambience…
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.…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9j7n5hRvYw&feature=youtu.be The Samsung NX1 and Sony A6300 have been warned. Fujifilm has arrived! No really. The X-T2 shoots the best 4K I have yet seen for $1500, with a great lens range, pleasing colour science, less rolling shutter and a different approach to ergonomics to Sony.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wNs5b8SGCM Canon have made the biggest step forward with their DSLR technology in 2016 than I’ve seen since 2009’s 5D Mark II. It isn’t the 5D Mark IV that has excited me so much as the 1D X Mark II, a camera that will see out the next 6 years as the benchmark for others to follow.
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…
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.

Comment on the forum An image to rival RED Dragon 6K for less than $2000? Yes please. 43rumors have given their highest rating to the following information. Please take this as a rumour until the actual announcement. Something does not make sense about the sensor resolution.
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,…
Comment on the forum Various sources have suggested that the C300 Mark II is having difficulties coping with the run-away success of the Sony FS7 on the rental market. Is it truly being left on the shelves? EOSHD analyses an unexpected situation…
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!
Check out this fantastic early review of the X-T2 by Kevin Mullins The Fuji X-T2 was announced today. It turns out to be something of a monster for video, bringing many of Fujifilm’s photographic strengths to 4K for the first time.
