    • What will HDR TVs mean for us?
      Modern sensors are HDR, they just have to change the codecs/processing.
    • What will HDR TVs mean for us?
      Now that UHD TVs are becoming the norm, it is time for the manufacturers to bring out the next reason to upgrade. This seems to be HDR. What will this mean to us? With photos you merge say 3 together to get the best range. Does that mean we will need to film on cameras with multiple sensors, and/or does it mean that having the biggest dynamic range will become more important, and/or will we see cameras with some kind of multiple exposing settings e.g. expose for sky and shadows differently in same video like in this Red site article?
    • Compact hybrid system for travel documentary type fun
      This doesn't fit any of your image quality criteria, but since you said the word "fun" I thought I'd mention the EM5II.  In no way does it exceed the IQ capabilities of other cameras, but I just can't help enjoying shooting with it. Fun for me is being inconspicuous while being able to shoot cool shots on the fly.  (A camera with a wrist strap)  What Snowfun mentions above is a great point.   Regardless, the EM5II appeal is an sort of an intangible thing.  I'm not even that fond of the menu system, but I do like using the camera. I've shot corporate gigs with it next to a GH4.  For web delivery I felt like it cut together fine; more than fine, really. And the things you can do with video and that 5-axis stabilizer, that's fun too.  You could almost forgo taking a tripod, depending on the type of footage you're trying to get.  I think it now sells for $800 new.  I also have 3 vintage Pentax A110 prime lenses for $75 and I think they look really great with the EM5II.  Of course, numerous other lens options exist.  Getting good, fast, and cheap glass mounted to a speed booster will give one impressive low-light ability too. If that's a huge priority, I'd consider the A7s. The older version used is $1500. Most cams shoot pretty good video these days.  If you think a particular strength of a camera, such as stabilization or low light, is a perfect fit, then invest in that capability.  Otherwise, seems like you could just stick with what you have and do just fine.
    • Petition for Samsung NX1 hack
      I tried contacting a couple of programmers I know. None of them was interested :-(    I guess we have to find someone interested in nx1 and skilled in programming.
    • Compact hybrid system for travel documentary type fun
      Do you enjoy the process as much as the product? I have an A7s and it's superb for aurora shooting. But it's "horrid" to use (with Shogun and v-loks). The BMPCC on the other hand is something I rather enjoy using. It's simple and elegant and gives you something you can play with (ie grade etc.) back home. And you will be carrying it with you at all times. To me, a lot of the enjoyment is the process - the product isn't the sole or even primary goal.
