  1. Me too, waiting for LX8 to come out, since it appears to use its own in house 1" sensor, I hope the 4K crop is not too great compare to FZ1000
  2. Autofocus on E-mount active speedbooster is really slow, if it can work on M43 I bet it will be even slower on M43 body without build-in PDAF.
  3. If you just shoot video I consider Voigtlander 25mm, manual focus is easier than focus by wire from modern lens, and F0.95 gives you that FF like background blur. But if you take photos + videos and don't have too big of budget then Leica 25mm and Olympus 25mm is more versatile. I think Andrew should update lens recommendation with Leica 42.5mm F1.2, OIS really helps at longer focal length. I have both Olympus 25mm and Voigtlander 25mm, but I am thinking of getting Canon 35mm F2 IS and active speedbooster for the IS.
  4. I think in 4K it just uses normal Power OIS, just 1080P and less it uses Hybrid+ OIS and level recording (probably too much data for CPU to handle atm, have to wait for 64bit ARM for that!)
  5. Panasonic is making wave for 4K this year! Now I need to decide either FZ1000 or LX8 for GH4 BCam.. FZ1000 comes with 5 Axis Hyrbid+ OIS, so I guess for handheld it will be better than GH4 + Power OIS FZ1000 4K video sample
  6. Interesting to have it as B-cam for 4K (and G6 for 1080P B-cam)
  7. Whoa, this one paired with those 3 axis gimbal stablizer and its pure win! flying and follow focus at same time :D
  8. So Sony have 2 constant F4 power zooms, I wish Panasonic had something similar in the pipeline. Currently their true constant zoom is 35-100mm, 12-35mm flicker when changing zoom. Their current PZ offering is really for consumers.
  9. Notice the product placement is one notch above A7R, I think about $3000 for price.
  10. GH4 is still the cheapest cinema 4K body you can buy without add on. But one thing for sure A7S will look gorgeous once fully geared up, but it just out of my budget.
  11. I just wondering how would Sony resolve the heating issue GH3/4 have to use much bigger body so it can shoot all day without heating up. M43 didn't suck for landscape, check out Amos Chapple, his latest one is done in GF5, and his photos look a lot nicer than those so called "FF"
  12. one thing I hate about the sony is the $@%%@$@ AVCHD, no MOV no sale for me btw FF is overated, I tend to find myself shooting in lower F stop so I can fucking focus properly
  13. Russian's protecting themself? what a joke! look at Ukraine crisis ....
  14. Another question is will it overheat like previous NEX? This one seems thicker than NEX6 which I hope they buff up the heatsink
  15. Or just use your phone to remote control the camera, if the distance is not too long. Currently Panasonic is the only one that allow full control over wifi (include manual focus).
  16. GM1 + Mastor SF1 active gimbal make perfect steadicam on the go at really small size. Should work for gun n run I think.
  17. For DR probably wait for proper samples to come out before making judgement. The thing is 4K will be here and will be staying unlike 3D gimmick, it really widens our eye just like how Apple's Retina display start the high resolution race, now if you see other screen they look pixelated. 2MP is just too low IMHO, why people shoot full resolution photos nowaday even though you can only see them on 2MP display and mostly at even reduced size on web.
  18. I am sure you can see the difference between 8MP and 2MP photos, it is the same for movie, a native 2MP footage is never as detailed as 8MP downsample to 2MP one, hence why everyone one shoot 8MP photos on their phone when 2MP is more than enough for everything, because there is a clear difference in detail. And in the next few years when 4K is the standard like FHD for today, all your work will look what SD footage looks like on FHD screen.
  19. I wonder how does the E-M10 do since it share the same processor as E-M1, though only 3Axis IS (from video it look pretty stable). No pdaf sensor means no pdaf strip will be shown on specific condition, and at half the price I am much more tempted to get as 2nd camera for handheld
  20. The 35-100mm F2.8 doesn't have that focus fluffy problem when zoom in/out and the aperture is true constant unlike 12-35mm which flicker when zooming Here is a concert recording done with G6+35-100mm (zoom out at 25:13 and zoom in at 26:44) wish Panasonic could do a MKII of 12-35mm with true constant aperture when zooming/improved lens flare, and a powerzoom lens similar to Sony 18-105mm PZ
  21. Well I disagree with the IS, you need to get some IS lens for its which is why I have 12-35 and 35-100, and 42.5mm F1.2 on pre-order, the Sony IS bad for video for the A series and no IBIS on their NEX. Only Olympus have viable IBIS for video at this stage.
  22. Well I do think 4K is the right progression, for year we have high resolution for still but have to edit on tiny 2MP resolution monitor when stills goes up to 36MP and most phones do 8MP+. But you never know what missing until u see 4K. Just like retina displays, I was surprised I can tell it straight away without knowing it was 4K resolution when I was checking in store. So yeah FHD will fade just like SD before it, as laptops and mobile/tablet going for WQHD this year, FHD is not enough anymore.
  23. One thing for sure is 4K will hopefully drive the computer innovation more forward, Intel is been stagnated in terms of CPU performance when AMD wave their white flag years ago. And hopefully large SSD will fall more in price too since they are really needed. This chart from Anandtech said the best
  24. I think focus peaking for Oly is not possible at this stage as it seems u need specific hardware overlay to make it work in video, the Olympus implantation is like tweaked art filter that requires more hardware resource , and that is also why GH3 will never get it. (that is a huge oversight by Panasonic)
