  1. Past hour
  2. Most likely too few PDAF pixels. That's why Samsung introduced the dual pixel 50MP 1/1.3" GV1 sensor.
  3. Is there any objective measurement for measuring ISO? I always thought that a standard measurement would be a good idea, but reviewers just seem to use their own judgement, which of course isn't comparable between different reviewers. IIRC the broadcast standards quote specs but very few cameras ever get tested.
  4. I think the point that @Deadcode was making was that the extra frames can help the motion estimation better, which makes sense, although I'm not sure that it would actually work that way in how they would have likely implemented the video processing pipeline.
  5. Surely you would apply after the speed change, doesn't seem logical to do it before.
  6. Today
  7. Go dual system! You could skip the cage, and just use your own phone as a screen. (or a cheap sub $200 monitor. Many people use an external monitor with their BMPCC4K anyway) They are going hard in making sure there are lots of accessories too!
  8. These would require the blur to essentially simulate a 360 shutter, or in the case of 160fps -> 25fps it would involve simulating a 1152 degree shutter! I guess there's no reason why you couldn't do that, it would simply blur the motion significantly more than the object moves in each source frame. Of course, this depends on the order of operations - if the motion blur is applied after the speed change then the input to the effect might only be the frames that survived the speed change, so extra frame rate wouldn't help the accuracy of the effect.
  9. WOW! The M4 is the swiss army knife of E2's - and I love how aggressive the Zcam team is adding features and options. They have the E-ND mount, m43, EF and so on - plus they're introducing their own speedbooster. At $1500 this is seriously tempting. Chris
  10. Great initiative. I would also like to know whether 4k is acheived through supersampling/lineskipping/1-to-1 pixels/cropping. This can be just as informative as max usable ISO since it's often less subjective and affects both noise and moire.
  11. If this happened at the releasedate I would have ordered a F6. But now I am glad I didnt, there is almost no good footage out yet. + the R5 or R6 might be crazy good. (as the 5D III ML RAW, is still one of my fav images, only DR and slowmotion options were limited)
  12. Thanks. I think that's everything now? Time to get that features table done now. Something along the lines of: Crop factor: 1.5 Max "usable, clean" ISO: 6400 4K rolling shutter: 22ms Max codec quality: 10bit, 4:2:0, 400Mbit ALL-I and so on...
  13. Cheaper than an X-T3 at launch. Bargain alert! Much more capable specs than the Pocket 6K. Don't forget the cost of the screen and cage though.
  14. No, because I use it on a proper camera with IBIS
  15. I guess technically not completely 100% price drops across the board, E2C seems to be excluded and is remaining the same.
  16. S20/S20+ main 12MP camera is actually the same sensor as Xperia 1 II, IMX555
  17. DPreview has a sample gallery up: https://www.dpreview.com/samples/5031669290/sony-xperia-1-mark-ii-sample-gallery Lotta NR at higher ISOs but overall nice from iPhone user perspective. it's got that Zeiss look.
  18. I use this lens on my Canon M6 II. At 70mm the OIS is very jankey. It jerks around a lot when youre just trying to hold it still. Does yours do this, Andrew?
  19. I believe the main problem with a larger sensor is fitting the lens. The S20 Ultra is 8.8 mm thick which is considerably larger than the competition. Making the phone thicker will turn away quite a few consumers. The lens thickness is also the main reason why most tele-cameras on smartphones are so bad. They often just use a smaller sensor but with a similar focal length as the main camera. For marketing it seems better to have 3 cameras even if cropping the main camera will give similar results. The S20 Ultra is one of the few exceptions that use a periscope lens, which in theory could be an improvement.
  20. Considering that Sony is the leader in sensor development, it's a mystery why they couldn't just produce a 12MP 1/1.3" sensor, that does better low light, has higher dynamic range, faster readout, and better frame rate options. Plus great HDR in photo and video (Sony really needs to fix its HDR algorithms).
  21. LT & LMb is this, it is Lectrosonics' newest "affordable" wideband options for transmitters: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1048161-REG/lectrosonics_lt_b1_belt_pack_transmitter_b1.html https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1048158-REG/lectrosonics_lmb_b1_lmb_belt_pack_transmit.html (although I got them in band C1, which is now illegal in the USA but still great for NZ!) I just today happened to break my two month long drought of NOT buying any new gear from overseas (as with COVID-19 turning the economy upside down, I'm trying to be more careful). Got myself a Lectrosonics UCR411 blk25 for a great price on eBay! https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/326898-REG/Lectrosonics_UCR411A_21_UCR411A_Wireless_Receiver.html Yeah, they're getting kinda "old" now, but they're still the best narrow band single channel receiver that Lectrosonics ever made.
  22. Does this also apply to the E2c? I can't see anywhere that it does. That's already very inexpensive for what it is - cheapest 4k raw camera available (I think)
  23. My bad. So Sony really doesn't stand out from the crowd specs-wise that much to justify the price. It just has software tricks and those tend to be inflated by PR.
  24. The S20 Ultra actually has a bigger sensor (1/1.33 instead of 1/1.7), but seems like a failure. The 960 fps on the S20 ultra is even upscaled 480 fps... The S20/S20+ has the same sensor size as the new Sony.
  25. ha! Of course, I probably read it here on EOSHD: (quite likely I read it elsewhere too, others have also said they share the same sensor)
  26. The specs are there, but until a reputable reviewer makes some sample studio scene shots, there is still a lot unknown. Sony smartphones have been famously producing not-flagship-level photo IQ. As for 20 fps - most flagships have reliable DPAF in video, which is 30-60 fps. Not much an achievement, until you factor in the big 12mp sensor that has shallower DOF. Which brings us to the S20 Ultra with the same size sensor that has been plagued by AF issues. So again, a review is needed. And then the question is, how many times are you doing 20fps bursts with 24mm lenses (don't know if other two modules support this mode).
