    • Panasonics new Cinema Camera? - Announcement today
      Definitely "a thing of beauty". Had hoped for F55 league and price and 240p windowed and 3s pre rec and Canon mount and all got it. And I can even mount 4 mics without hassle (hello Canon and Alexa Mini...) Have optioned the Varicam LT as it is almost exactly what I need although the 240p will probably still not look that great. The Varicam 35 has a fascinating image and when I recently graded demo files in ProResLT from varicam.it comparing Varicam at 5000ISO vs Alexa vs Dragon vs F55 at 3200ISO the Varicam made them all look very very ugly. Would have loved to see a comparison with the C300II though, but that one is severely underspeced with 120p in standard def and C500II will probably have an 8K sensor and therefore a much steeper price.  Maybe this sensor will find its way into an FS7 counterpart, but not soon, I guess.  RED would not be an option because of missing ND filters and weak high ISO performance. Arri Mini is probably more than double the price and now with big players like Netflix demanding real 4K I´d rather give my distributors that spec, no matter if it is visible in the final film or not. 
    • which cheap lenses to declick?
      Get an Helios 44 lens + adapter for your 7D and forget about RAW, Magic Lantern and other technicalities!!! 30$ best spent in your life!!!

      If they just made a proper MFT camera with 12MP sensor(bigger pixels) so the crop is exactly 2x from FF at true 17:9 4K, good at 1600 ISO, keeps the ratios for anamorphic from GH4, at least 12 stops of DR with a better implementation of V-log L, color science from Varicam, 4K 30p(being realistic but would like more) and HD 120p, 10bit 422 AVC for all flavours with decent bitrate, ND with 3 or more strengths, 2 XLR-s for audio, SD cards, ergonomic body similar to FS5 and priced around 3500-4500$/€. Add a XL Speedbooster and the crop factor becomes 1.3 APS-H.
      Keeping the MFT sensor they wouldn't canibalise their own lenses and could even make one MFT servo zoom for run&gun, maybe 12-50 f2.8.
      I believe many would jump from the likes of C100 II. With these specs, I'm not sure that I would even consider anything else that is offered now in that price range.
