A monstrous Fuji X-T4 is coming, rumoured to shoot 6K/60p with anamorphic mode and IBIS – The “X-H2” we always dreamed of?

Fuji X-T4

Comment on the forum

Rumours have gained pace all over the place about the X-T4 and the discontinuation of the X-H2. I have to say this makes perfect sense if the X-T4 is going to be an X-H2 anyway in video terms. 10bit 6K/60p anyone?

Sigma Fp Review – Part 2 – A few bugs you need to know, and comparison to Leica SL2

Sigma Fp vs Leica SL2

Comment on the forum

Two of the most unique cameras on the market today are both L-mount with 10bit capabilities in 4K. The Sigma Fp of course shoots Cinema DNG 4K RAW at up to 12bit to SSD via USB C and 8bit RAW internally. The Leica SL2 shoots very high quality 10bit 4K LOG internally with more of a passing resemblance to Arri Alexa colour science and LOG profile.

I thought I’d get to know the two, if that’s the case!

Curious: Are these the new A7 Mark IV and A7S specs?

Rumoured Sony A7 IV / new A7S specs

Comment on the forum

This chart comes from a good source but seems off. The video specs are very disappointing with no full frame 4K/60p on either the A7S or A7 M4. 1080p ones again caps out at 120fps. The sensor readout mode on the A7 IV is shown as once again 6K downsampled to 3840 x 2160 with a 1.2x crop if shooting 30p, which hints at the same sensor as before. Interestingly the A7 IV is listed as having a variable optical low pass filter (like the RX1 Mark II) – basically a vibrating piece of glass over the sensor, and the next A7S (oddly labelled Mark 4 when it should be Mark 3) at least has 1.5x crop 4K/60p in Super 35mm mode (like the Panasonic S1 and S1H).

Canon 1D X Mark III with 12bit 5.5K RAW in-depth – FINALLY Canon get serious about DSLR video

Comment on the forum

We have waited a long time for today – a true Canon 1D C sequel. This is also the first time since the 2012 Canon have released a ‘cutting edge’ DSLR for filmmakers. There’s good news and bad news – of course it costs $6500, has no EVF or IBIS by nature and many will say the form factor is obsolete compared to the full frame 10bit mirrorless competition.

Canon’s Larry Thorpe has published an excellent technical white-paper with the camera, so let’s take an in-depth look at the video specs…
