0 Updated: Canon XC15 to be announced with a breakout audio port – but what else is new?

Comment on the forum Update: Rather an an SDI port, it seems the XC15 is set to feature an audio connector for a set of XLR jacks on a top grip accessory which slots into the hot-shoe similar to the C300. The larger hot-shoe has been redesigned with a screw-thread, again another hint the update is all about accommodating a handle with XLRs. With a camera so ripe for a change,…

2 Panasonic GH5 rumours point to 10bit 4:2:2 internal codec

The first reliable rumours are coming in about the GH5. According to 43Rumors it will not be ready for Photokina, instead we might be looking at an early 2017 release date. They also appear to be confident about two other aspects – no extra crop of the sensor when shooting 4K and the codec has been bumped up to 10bit 4:2:2 internally!

1 Canon 1D X Mark II video specs emerge – uses 4K MJPEG codec of 1D C but is it “missing Canon LOG”?

Disclaimer: the full specs aren’t out yet and nothing is officially announced New 1D X Mark II specs (via Canon Rumors) have just come out which reveal it to shoot DCI 4K in MJPEG format (4096 x 2610 and likely 8bit) just like the 1D C. However the maximum frame rate for 4K is now 60p! However at first glance there appears to be a glaring omission – that of Canon LOG.

2755 Sony announce sequel to my favourite small camera of all time – the RX1 II is here with variable OLPF and 42MP sensor but no 4K!

Granted this is more a stills related camera than video but the Sony RX line is a favourite of mine – it has always packed absolute cutting edge technology and innovation into tiny cameras. And who doesn’t like tiny cameras? (My review of the RX100 IV is coming tomorrow, by the way). The original RX1 in 2013 was almost like a full frame Leica when it came to street photos but jacket…

47 Blackmagic Micro Cinema vs Studio Camera – What are the differences?

Blackmagic once again caused quite a stir at NAB with three new cameras. I like the URSA Mini the best but here we have the old Pocket and Studio cameras reincarnated. They are a lot cuter this time. These cameras are exceptionally innovative and certainly break all the known performance / size ratios. Although they look very similar on the surface they are aimed at very different users. I’ll now delve into how the…

The KineMAX 6K cinema camera is nearing a release and I might have my hands on a prototype soon here in Berlin (I happen to be down the road from my friends at HDVideoShop who are the official European dealer). This is a significantly higher spec cinema camera on paper than anything else under the price of a Red Dragon for now. Kinefinity have just released the first 6K footage from…

0 Canon 5DS takes a backwards step for video – severe rolling shutter, moire and lack of uncompressed HDMI

Canon Professional Network have release detailed technical information on the 5DS and 5DS R. “The uncompressed HDMI output found on the 5D Mark III has not been included on either of the cameras as the EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R are more prone to moiré and skewing, making them less suitable for high-end video production. A headphone socket, for monitoring audio, is not included. This is due to a lack…

0 Pictures of two new Canon 750D and 760D ‘rebels’

Canon’s next step on the entry level Rebel / XXXD series is about to arrive and it will be interesting to see the video specs now Panasonic are doing sub-$1000 entry level 4K with the LX100 and FZ1000. This time Canon are releasing two models – the 750D and a 760D, with the difference seeming to be the addition of a 70D-like top LCD panel on the 760D.

0 Updated: Canon 5Ds does not feature 4K video

Canon Rumors suggests the 5Ds records 1080/30p (translated from the Japanese source at DCI). Looks like we will have to place our hope in the 5D Mark IV and a continued reduction in 1D C prices on eBay to get 4K from Canon anywhere near in line with the pricing of competitors. Here are the detailed specs…

0 New Panasonic CM1 smartphone shoots 4K video with Leica lens

UPDATE, the original article refers to 4K video – turns out it is only 15fps so more like a continuous stills burst mode than a video mode The iPhone 6 Plus hasn’t even been released yet, but as of today it has been made obsolete for photos and video by the Panasonic CM1. This is quite simply a new benchmark for the camera phone, with an overall camera spec that beats every…

0 25 ways the Sony A7S trumps the Canon 1D C

This began as a 10 point list. It grew… I am huge fan of the 1D C’s image but not the camera itself and especially not the price. The 1D C when it was introduced offered an absolutely lovely image and still does but now the playing field is rapidly changing. Exactly how does the Sony A7S compare on paper to the 1D C?

0 54 mentions of video vs 32 of photos in Nikon D810 press release

Along with such disappointing video quality on both of Nikon’s flagship models the D4S and D810, it’s suggested by some that Nikon do not care about video on DSLRs because it is a small market. They make stills cameras! Video is a tiny niche. And so it goes, on and on (from people on photography forums and not actual working pros)… So I was surprised to see 34 mentions of “video”, 14 mentions of…

View the FZ1000 at B&H or at Adorama The Panasonic FZ1000 looks like a very handy alternative to the Sony AX100 camcorder and RX10 bridge camera. It’s also the world’s first 4K camera (25p,30p) under $1k. At this price some compromises are bound to come into play and we’ll get to those in a moment.
