    • Anyone not that excited about the GH5?
      Ehh, where is the camera in this picture? JK. I can see your point, but to have to go into menus to change things you need to change a lot, I am not into that. And to change ND filters, hell even change a lens on that would be a turd. But that does look like a nice rig. Not my cup of tea. But I am sure there are more people like you than me. So you win, I guess.
    • Canon 5D mkIV Crop Factor Reduction
      It sounds great.  Same crop with the GH5 with metabones XL.  But if you don't already own the metabones, that puts the GH5 + metabones at nearly the same price range as the 5D4 if you go gray market.  And I'm going to guess 8-bit C-LOG 4:2:2 is more or less on par, and maybe easier to grade than 10-bit V-Log 4:2:2.
      GH5 Advanages (even after 5D4 update) IBIS Fully articulating swivel screen Video tools such as focus peaking, waveform, vectorscope Legendary Panasonic Battery life (Canon's video recording battery consumption rate is quite high). 4K 60p (vs 3K 60p on the 5D4) No 30-minute recording limit   5D4 Advantages: DPAF Canon skin tones Full frame 1080p (unchanged) Full frame pictures   Conclusion:  GH5 is still a great purchase.  I wouldn't cancel your preorder.

      They say that PDAF degrades IQ, and they had to make a choice between PDAF and the vast improvements in GH5 IQ
    • Canon 5D mkIV Crop Factor Reduction
      Certainly not a company as traditional and backward-looking as Canon, which has never before released any product that shoots video at a non-standard resolution (or frame rate). For one, the specs are far too detailed to be a leak. Leaks usually start with marketing or third parties, not with engineers. We don't even have this much information on how any previous Canon dSLRs produces video, and Canon engineers have denied line skipping in the past (tip toed around it with verbal obfuscation) so why would they admit to using it here and why would an engineer leak anything in this much detail, and if they did, why would so much be blatantly wrong or unconfirmed? Maybe it's someone whose uncle is an engineer? Those listed are two flavors of the codec (which is spelled wrong in the description) that don't currently exist, and the Digic 6+ chip doesn't have an onboard XF-AVC (or whatever) encoder, which is why you get the kludgy codec with the 1DC and 1DX Mk II and the good codecs with the XC10 (using the Digic DV 5 chip, which does have the encoder). The rest just reeks of someone doing some math in his bedroom without really thinking it through. There's not enough throughput to push all those pixels, nor power on the chip to debayer them. There's something called Occam's duct tape. It's the line of reasoning that most people refer to when supporting conspiracy theories, where all the strings tie together in such a knot that no one could have invented it. Except they did. Just because there's a lot of information, doesn't mean any of it is right. See: pizza gate, Alex Jones, etc. I could be wrong. I have no inside information about any of this and if this were true it would be great. But this is the most unlikely rumor I've read in a long, long time. And I agree with what others have written, if you don't like Canon, get something you do like! There's a ton of stuff out there and everyone has different priorities. (Personally I like Arri and Canon so I wouldn't mind if this rumor were true.)

      Who cares about Canon anyways its 2017 time to move on why spend money on them when they dont listen to you guys? I mean look at Sony or Panna they add or try to add Video tools for Indifilm makers for less cost than canon does and yet people still defend them! Canon even threatens to take legal actions against ML team if they touch their flagship toys !
