  2. For a lot of work using primes isn't feasible, and you need to use zooms. It's in those situations where the size difference really stands out. The 12-35mm is 305 g, while the Sony 24-70mm is 886 g. The 35-100mm is 357 g, while the Sony 70-200 is 1045 g. The 100-400mm f/4-6.3 is 985 g, the Sony 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 is 2115 g. That's not even factoring in the length of them. All of those lenses are also considerably cheaper than their Sony counterparts. Also, if you wanted to get a 600mm full frame equivalent lens for M43 you would go with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 300mm f/4. It weighs 1475 g and costs $2,849.99. The Sony FE 600mm f/4 meanwhile weighs 3040 g and costs $12,998.00. You were saying? 😉
  3. I've compared most of those cameras but not side by side (worked with almost all of them either in post or in person). LOVE the EVA1's image but the LCD and ergonomics are terrible. I put a little loupe on the LCD as I like a minimal set up but it would be a pain to "rig up" traditionally. I much prefer its image to the S1H actually. The colors are just better. It's not a world apart but it just looks better. Noisier though. C200 has a great image but the noise pattern is ugly and there's CMOS smear. It's just not the image I want. P6K I've only worked with in post but it's a pain in some ways from what I can see but the image looks great too. I think it boils down to ergonomics ultimately (and getting the right IRND filters for the P6K – or just getting the pro model) but both the EVA1 and P6K are capable of beautiful images, right on par with (or just a step down from) the Varicam35 and Alexa, which have quite different looking but really beautiful images too.
  4. My Sony A7s II is smaller than my GH5 was by a mile. And their better lenses hardly weigh anything and are amazingly small. Sure, if you want a 600mm lens a M4/3 is smaller, but it will be a slower lens to boot and cost close to the same money.
  5. It's interesting you guys bring up the EVA1. SDI input at that price range with a mostly foolproof image...I've seen side-by-side comparisons with the C70 (pre RAW update) and they match VERY close. Image isn't as detailed as S1H or BMPCC6k, but I can live with that. I can work around the crappy LCD and menus too. I'd get the FS700R in this range but the size/recorder setup and the Sony color just doesn't match up. How would you guys compare EVA1 to BMPCC6K for image and usability? That was my next investment for professional work before investing in Komodo/C70/FX9. C200 is worth a mention in that comparison, I suppose.
  6. If you pick up an M to L adapter then it opens up a lot of affordable compact M mount options that will cover full frame. These are from the sub $250 7Artisans 35mm f2 on my FP. It adds minimally to the weight and size when on the FP even with the adapter.
  7. Sherif, who has worked with Panasonic for years and was hired by them to make GH3 and GH4 videos for promotional purposes, seemed really disappointed with Panasonic's response. For those that didn't watch, Panasonic indicated to him that they were satisfied with the performance. That's not to say they won't try to improve it in the future (my words, not his), but I too am disappointed by that response. Panasonic has always felt like the company that listens and cares about their users (except for autofocus lol.) They absolutely should not be satisfied with this performance. There are still advantages to M43, and it does have a dedicated user base. As much as I like my new S5, I really appreciate how compact my M43 kit is even more. I think we'll continue to see a slowdown in releases compared to 2014-2017, but I think we'll still see more M43 cameras down the road.
  8. I think the GH6 may be the last M4/3 camera Panasonic makes. And I don't see the Olympus 1 being a runaway hit for the masses. Could be the end for them. You can buy FF cameras cheaper than them right now.
  9. Anyone got any suggestions for tiny travel lenses? Looking for something I can put on my Sigma FP that doesn't make it not "pocketable". I was looking at the helios 33 which is 35mm f2 (good focal length imo) but it only covers S35 🥲
  10. Meant to say I have not seen it. Though I confusing streaking with noise banding which aren't the same thing. The worst camera I have noticed streaking on is the C300 MK2, to the point where I probably wouldn't use it. I shot a window situation like shown in that video above with the Sigma FP and didn't see any streaking though.
  11. Is it possible to saw off the LCD from the GH6 and then gaffer tape it or something to the GH5ii? Or onto the OM-1. Or XH2s which it also sounds like they are going to ruin with a flippy flip flop screen…

    Panasonic GH6 rumours

    I'm not sure it will take years, but it's not here yet. I'm in no hurry. A GH5ii isn't a bad purchase actually. Yeah, I don't know much about sensor design but the guy said it was an issue of CMOS sensors and that you have to compensate for it. The problem seemed to be something that could crop up in real use.

    Olympus OM-1

    ...also GH6 images are now available in the 'Video Stills Comparison' tool - this is OM-1 UHD 10-bit versus GH6 UHD and OM-1 UHD 8-bit versus GH6 UHD (it doesn't say if the GH6 images are 8 or 10-bit video)
  14. Oddly I have seen streaking with RAW on the S1 / S1h
  15. Maybe it's better to buy a second hand GH5 II now and wait till this camera is mature. Guess that will still take some years...

    I thought the topic was "things you can buy". ....but if you must limit it to film things, the best double feature I have ever seen was Clueless and Clockers. A true pairing, if ever there was one.

    Olympus OM-1

    The full OM-1 (written) review is on dpreview now - https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/om-system-om-1-review Interesting that UHD 8-bit video looks about the same as on E-M1 iii, but 10-bit HLG/OMlog400 is noticeably more detailed.

    Panasonic GH6 rumours

    Great video showing the streaking issues that the GH6 has with its current firmware version, and comparing the streaking with other cameras that share the same technology (FX3, Red V-Raptor, Pocket 6K Pro, S1H, and GH5).. Spoiler, the GH6 is worse than the others, but all the others (except the V-Raptor) have some degree of streaking. My read on it is that since it appears to be heavily influenced by the ISO value and DR boost feature that this is something they can probably improve in future firmware updates. We all know the camera isn't really "fully baked" yet as it still doesn't have Prores in 1080p or 4K modes, and lacks other features that Panasonic promised on release. I think they rushed it out to stem the bleeding from all the "MFT is dead" BS from people who don't actually shoot anything, and will gradually improve it in future versions.

    Come on fellas, at least try and keep it on topic…
  20. I never said it wasn't legitimate, just that that's what they did. In terms of it being a gripe, it's still got better battery than P4K and P6K, despite those cameras being enormous in comparison. I'd prefer it be smaller than it is and be lower-resolution and therefore need less processing and therefore be smaller and still have better battery life. You'd prefer it to be larger with better battery. We'd both prefer it had 27 stops of DR. This is camera-land..... where no-one gets what they want.
  21. Yeah, I did buy it. This is unedited photos from it. They look almost exactually like I seen it from my own eyes. The two on the bottom are from my Canon 1DC. I am amazed how realistic the photos and videos are on the Xperia.
  22. Weren't you talking about buying $1000 phone and video quality coming out of that phone in some other thread???? Now imagine adding a Panavision housing behind it 😄
  23. I don't really care about them being compatible with the GH5. You shouldn't have to use external solutions to get longer than an hour record time, especially when one of the hallmarks of the GH series has been excellent battery life. It's a very legitimate gripe.
  24. Last week
  25. It's backwards compatible with the GH5. Plus the camera supports lots of other power options so you can make it bigger if you want to.
  26. Wow that green stuff is nasty! The footage breaks really hard.
