    • DPReview hype 5D Mark IV sensor dynamic range
      Noise looks to be on par with the 1DxII up to 6400 ISO. I'll wait for the DXOmark figures, but I suspect a 1-1.5 stop DR improvement over the MK3, which would make it a great upgrade should Magic Lantern eventuate. It looks like it will be much better in low light than the Mk3. 5D Mk4 ISO 800 pushed 3 stops
    • GH5 10-bit 4:2:2 internalšŸ‘
      GH4Ā isĀ competing with A7sII and A7rII, in the sense that they are taking market share that might have gone to the GH4. GH4 got a big boost by being the first on the market with 4K. It doesn't matter that it's half the price, it was the only option, so it was adopted for a lot of higher end uses.Ā 
      Panasonic need to convince video users that it's worth staying with the M4/3 system rather than ponying up the extra cash and switching.
    • GH5 10-bit 4:2:2 internalšŸ‘
      Sony's camera bodies are also priced much higher than the GH4. The GH4's release RRP was the same as the A7II's release RRP. You're talking Panasonic's top of the line, versus Sony's middle of the line. The GH4 is half the price of an A7rII or A7sII. So given that essentially the GH4 is competing with the A7II, it only really needs to beat that and it will sell. It doesn'tĀ needĀ to do anything, particularly something as 'drastic' as that, to stay in the game. If you consider the A7rII and A7sII to be high-end ILC game, Panasonic aren't competing there. They have neither the sensor size, resolution, low-light ability etc. to be able to compete at that level. But theyĀ canĀ compete in the mid-range level a la A7II. I would suggest you'll get significantly improved low-light ability before you'll get 4k 4:2:2 10-bit. Maybe 4:2:2 8-bit, even 10-bit 1080p, but I just can't see it going full 10-bit in theĀ GH5. Sure, right now they have no higher tier product to protect, but that's only thinking short term, and again these people are running aĀ businessĀ and in business, you make long-term decisions for long-term sales.Ā  There may not be a product on the market right now to compete with an FS5/FS7/C300 etc. but unless anyone here works at Panasonic, no-one knows what may be in the pipeline. IfĀ there is an AF100 successor in the pipeline at any stage of development, it will have to sit between the VaricamLT and the GH5, and those decisions are madeĀ now.Ā AndĀ ifĀ Panasonic can do 10-bit 4k internally in the GH5, and still make a profit margin with it priced atĀ $1600 - why would they put that in a camera whose market is largely stills shooters, when they can put it into a $5k camera aimed at video shooters and make significantly more money? Again, happy to be proven wrong, and more than happy to put an edible hat on the line. But I just don't see it happening.

    • DPReview hype 5D Mark IV sensor dynamic range
      Erm 5D Mk3 100 ISO pushed 6 stops 5D Mk4 100 ISO pushed 6 stops At 6400 ISO they look about the same except the MK4 is sharper than the MK3 and the D750. While it's not ISO invariant like the Nikons, it is a huge improvement over the Mk3, and that noise isn't hard to clean up in ACR. It's almost as resolute as the D810. D750 6400 ISO 5D Mk4 6400 ISO If you need to push any DSLR video 6 stops good luck with that.
