    • Time to step up - Panasonic GH5 must go 6K Super 35mm to compete in 2016
      No, no, no!
      Dear Panasonic, please don’t listen to Andrew.
      He’s a nice guy, but this time…. :-) I don’t think, businesswise it would be a clever decision.
      From my consumer segment point of view, it wouldn’t be an attractive one either. The main benefit from the MFT is not the FT, but the “M”.
      Micro!
      If somebody wants “full-frame”, than buy a full-frame camera.
      MFT gives the best size/quality compromise. There is no perfect camera, no “one size fits all” system. Size-quality-price is all important but antagonistic factors! I don’t want to invest into speedbusters and co. and I certainly wouldn’t buy a camera, i.e. pay for features, I could only use with other lenses. That’s the whole idea with having a system. I want a light and efficient gear, exactly as MFT is. Actually, I would rather ask Panasonic for the opposite. Make the new sensor with fewer pixels. I would love to see a native 4K MFT sensor with app. 8 MP. but with excellent low light capability. Aka a7s… Full pixel readout and no mathematics, how to make 4K from 6K, instead of that, using the processor for more color and dynamic range. God forbid it, even RAW :-) Of course, 8-10 MP would not be so attractive for some photographers, but that’s why, there are other cameras. You can’t please all. In business strategy, segmentation is like DoF, it’s about taking choices, focusing. I certainly hope, Panasonic would not change their focus :-)

      While FF sensors are great, S35 will remain the professional standard for the foreseeable future. Why? Because the image circle of PL cine lenses can cover S35 but not FF 35mm. That is why professional cameras such as the Arri Alexa, which cost $70K+, still use S35 sensors.    
    • Film Piracy, Careers Ruined, Sundance, Worth it?
      I don't agree with the policy implications of your points but this here is a real reason that movie piracy is still strong. I subscribe to Xbox Music because ~90% of what I want to listen to is on there, and if it's not, it's probably indie stuff that's available on YouTube in a playlist uploaded by the content creator themselves. Now try this with movies: http://www.canistream.it/ Try searching for well-known movies off the top of your head. Staples of cinema. Things that you'd actually want to see, not Asylum stuff at the bottom of the Walmart bargain bin. I tried about 20 movies and didn't hit on ANY ONE of them. That's why Popcorn Time, strem.io, and the like exist. I have no idea why people even bother with Netflix or Hulu or Amazon Prime for movies; it must be the TV shows. EDIT: Hey, I finally found one. http://www.canistream.it/search/movie/sharknado
    • Panasonics new Cinema Camera? - Announcement today
      I'm trying to say that the above shot is purposfluly made difficult in terms of colour and skintone, yet still shines. You are not blown away by the colour science here? Skintones look perfect to me.
