    • Somehow I get the feeling that Panasonic is loosing interest in all of the m4/3 cameras, especially the smaller, cheaper ones. Look at what little effort they put into the LX100 mk II. Why even bother. I think they must see the hand writing on the wall or something, and this FF thing is their future they think. I am pretty sure there will be a GH6, but after that hmm.
    • Well we make art primarily for ourselves and get a lot of pleasure putting it out there, sharing it with other people. It's up to them whether they have a proper view from the crowd or not. It's a shame a lot of them don't but nothing we can do about it Tech companies on the other hand could start by getting their fucking act together
    • Here is a brief video that I shot the other night of a performance in a nightclub. It was not planned at all. I just happened to be there with my camera. I had the permission of the band in advance before I started filming. Settings: DCI 4K, All-I, 400 MB/s, 24 frames per second, shutter speed 48 fps, AFC custom setting, MF Assist - Peak, F-stop all the way open, on auto.  I think I had the sharpness on -2, noise reduction +2, Face/Eye detection auto,  DR 100, Auto ISO, Auto WB, Eterna film profile, plus what I wrote below. Dials on the top: A for the ISO on the left, Dial on the right (SS) set to T. This is shot with my XT-3 and the 18-55 kit lens, OIS. Handheld the camera. No monopod, tripod, or gimbal. I do have these, but I didn't have them with me that night (Halloween). The audio was set to internal mic auto, mic level limiter on, wind filter off,  low-cut filter on. I did not have my pro audio gear with me. No external mic or recorder. I used the full length of the zoom lens, all the way to 55 mm when she is under the stage lights, and back out to 18 mm to capture the scene at the end. I was shooting video of the moving singer through the crowd from my high table in the corner of the room. Sometimes the dancers obscured the path of the camera to the singer, and sometimes the auto focus did not track her completely at full 55 mm zoom out (when people moved in front of her), although I don't think it was a problem. The auto focus quickly re-locked on her. It was a range of a very low light setting, to the stage lights over the performers on stage. Challenging conditions. I like the way it turned out. No planning. Next time I am sure that it could be done with more control, but then the spontaneity may be lost. This video is shot in DCI 4K, All-I, 24 frames per second, shutter speed 48 fps. I did not do any color grading, and no adjustments to the audio. Type: MPEG Movie -

    • Based on the X-T3 sensor IMX571 datasheet, it's an extremely versatile sensor, look at all these readout modes! (there are two more pages after this but it's about binned modes) Interesting there's dual-gain ADC mode similar to ARRI ALEXA's ALEV III sensor, and the sensor can also operate in global shutter drive.
    • It was a trick on the original A7s also, They are Terrible for rolling shutter.
