      Apparently the G80/G85 is going to have the Cinelike V & D: See second paragraph under video tools: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/panasonic-lumix-dmc-g85-first-impressions-review/4
    • DJI just slaughtered GoPro with Mavic
      Well, not if people criticize videoquality based on that 720p bad rip upload (of their already questionable 4K original video). That's free badvertising.

    • 1DX Mk II video
      More options are of course better. Canon is very popular because of the way people and skin tones look. Most consumers don't really know or care about resolution/sharpness. As long as it's not super blurry, they'll be happy or won't notice. A lot of movies shot on film look very soft compared to current digital acquisition. However the film grain creates pleasing texture and a kind of false detail that doesn't look like digital aliasing- very organic. I just shot a red carpet event in Hollywood on the A7S II and it looked pretty good once the WB and custom profile wereĀ carefully set (Cine2 with SGamut3.cine color + other tweaks). Hours of footage were shot and the client appreciated the low light performance, skin tones looked pretty good (matched fairly well to what I saw live), and the files were very small. However in post there's not much flexibility to grade, and as others have noted Sony still looks more like video than Canon. If the 1DX II shot better 1080p IĀ would have used it for the interviews on the red carpet (well lit with ARRI lights) because people really do look better with Canon/ARRI and celebrities are very sensitive about how they look. For shorter events and/or with a DIT running memory card dumps, 1DX II 4K would have looked amazing, especially for the files sizesĀ compared to the RED that was shooting RAW (he also had major /battery/power/boot up time/ limitations for a live event). The theater shots were very low light; nothing can touch the A7S II right now in that situation (so I would have had to bring two cameras).Ā An A7S III with better IBIS, Sony's '4D' AF closer to Canon's PDAF, and skin tones close enough to Canon/ARRI, will make a lot of people veryĀ happy. Right now there's nothing on the market that can compete with what the 1DX II can provide: amazing skin tones, sharp/detailed enough 4K (even though not really resolving 4K of detail), marketĀ leading AF (PDAF), amazing automatic white balance* (useful in mixed lighting and live/docu events), native EF lens support with PDAF (no fiddly adapters without usableĀ AF), very high reliability, very short boot time,Ā and a decent balance of 4K image quality and file size (compared to say a RED). * it's possible Canon is looking for faces/skintones and optimizing WB for skin at the expense of other colors (which makes for example strongĀ reds and blues to look quite different). Latest Canon cameras can optimize for 'ambient' WB as well as the traditional method (whites).
    • Anamorphic Music Video
      It's funny how lenses for anamorphic are. The Konica really isn't very inspiring on its own, but with the Kowa on front it's awesome. Conversely, my 50mm Zeiss C/Y is bonkers good on its own, but quite bland with the Kowa.Ā  It's a bit hair-splitting once web compression rears its ugly head, but full 4K files hide nothing. I did a version with the skew fixed (actually quite easy to correct forĀ in post if it's this minor), but I liked it better with the skew to it. Adds some low-fi and a sort of "toyish" aesthetic akin to tilt-shift.Ā  Makes it bleeding obvious that it hasn't been done with yet another Canon 5D and 24-70.
