    • Anyone not that excited about the GH5?
      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.)
    • Canon 5D mkIV Crop Factor Reduction
      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 !  
    • $30 anamorphic de-squeeze app for GH4 (iPhone/iPad)
      Just an update on using this app: - It gets the video feed from the Panasonic App.  So you can shoot 4:3 and 16:9 no problems.  Then it stretches the image. - This is both good and bad.  The Panasonic App image is like 480p.  This can make focusing a real pain.  I wish it was 720p at least.  I have missed many shots because of this. - Working 4:3 on an iPad mini is really great.  Like having a 7" monitor, maybe bigger.  But the 480p image sucks though.  Works well if shooting regular (non-anamorphic) video. - There is sometimes a severe lag when starting recording.  It can be up to 5 seconds.  So if you like to record items right away, the lag can be a problem.  Also, it's a wifi connection, so the signal will cut out a lot in high traffic areas. - The rear LCD on the G85 or GH4 will shut off after 1-2 minutes.  That means that you can't select focus points, or any touch screen functions at all.  So you need to switch to the Panasonic App to change settings while recording. - Overlays would be really helpful and I hope he can do something with it.  However, it is a simple app that gets its feed from the Panasonic App.  I don't think he can put an overlay.  The other thing that would be good is a histogram.  With the rear LCD shutting off, you lose the ability to watch the histogram as well. (Panasonic App doesn't show the histogram either). I think for run-n-gun, the app works well.  But for serious work, I think an external monitor solution is still best.  The worst part is the video feed at 480p.  It just doesn't work for serious focus needs.  But the ability to use an iPad mini or iPhone 7s means that you can have a great monitoring solution on the go.
    • Anyone not that excited about the GH5?
      Although your point is understood, I think differently about it...the GH5 or 4 or a6500 is just the negative...inside a box...with the bits and pieces I need, to turn into a camera that can survive the rigors of being in the field...and if I do need a shot from inside a car or where space is limited, I can use a second body to reduce the size or take it out of whatever rig I'm using...but I'm used to large cumbersome cameras and like the mass😀😀...once the image quality got to a certain point, rigging with rails, follow focus, external recorders and proper viewfinder for shooting outside made sense...for my sets of lenses and rigging and external gear, the only thing changing is the brain I'm using for capturing the image...my stealth set up LOL...goofy maybe?... but a pleasure to work with😀😀 l
