    They can, by offering Red the license fee for compressed raw or some sort of cross license deal that Canon and Red have done, or wait til Apple win the suit.

    These new recorders are HUGE, in my opinion. Black Magic Raw is perhaps the best codec currently available that isn't made by Red. Beautiful 12-bit raw footage that can actually take up less space than ProRes LT or All-I 10-bit H264. I have almost bought Black Magic cameras many times just for the codec, but I edit in Premiere and don't particularly love their cameras.
    With today's update, I can continue to use the EVA-1 or C300 Mark II, record everything in the amazing BM Raw AND still edit in Premiere (though I should just switch to Da Vinci)! These recorders breathe some serious life back into cameras like the EVA-1 and C300II. 
    Pretty amazing that Black Magic would do this. They are really working to get people into their full workflow and using some part of their tools. They will sell a lot of these recorders, probably at the expense of a few Ursas and Pockets, but they will have a lot more people in their ecosystem now.
    Hats off, BMD. This is amazing.

    Full sensor high speed phase-detection AF, faster and more precise than X-T3/X-T30!
    There will be firmware updates for X-T3/X-T30 to further refine their AF algorithm, among other features and fixes.

    Looks like Sony let Panasonic be the king on video mirrorless camera, they have their own niche which is superior AF and not competing on video spec.

    It's nice to have a nice camera, but a lot has to do what is happening in front and behind (!) the camera body. It's like when you were a kid shooting silly videos with your friends, playing out a combat scene perhaps or something. First thing that ruins it is an inadequate casting/wardrobe/location. A battlescene with 12 yr olds running around in casual clothing in a suburb neighbourhood with cringy acting doesn't really sell it. Same for the post production with too epic music thrown over it and Red Giant Magic Bullet Looks set to overdrive on the 'Michael Bay'-setting. But you live and you learn. Get the right talent in front of the camera, put 'em in a convincing setting, with the mood set right from the get-go and suddenly it's already much better. You change the kit zoom to a set of primes. You're giving camera movement more thought. In post you still stylize, but you don't go overboard. It's those touches that have little to do with the camera body itself that make the biggest difference. So when the title of this thread says 'everything else instead', indeed, ND filters and audio gear are exactly those kind of things.
    I just got a little too carried away with pixel squeezing and forgot about the time and effort it takes to obtain and work with such thicc footage. And for what? So it looks slightly better to the 1% that would actually be able to tell a difference. I realized that I enjoy the shooting process the most. Thinking carefully about the scene, what it needs in terms of lighting, what look am I going for, what lens would suit that? That sorta thing. I actually don't enjoy just about anything that happens in post, so it was a bit foolish of me to get a new and exciting camera that would however make that whole part more tedious, but it's an easy trap to fall into. Atleast I realized it. 😄 Maybe I'll consider it once I can afford to have an editor work for me (that shares a similar mindset/creative vision).

    Excellent news!  I was contacted by a Panasonic operations manager about this S1 and S1H blue channel clipping problem! He wanted me to be very aware that Panasonic has seen my video and they are very interested in this issue! I wont post my emails here but I will take one quote for you guys to see:  
    "Rest assured that this issue has a lot of attention right now"....[from Panasonic] engineers.
    During this time, be very carefull about shooting in VLog. Outdoors should be fine. Indoors and night shooting are very prone to deep blue channel saturation, even on blue light that is not very strong. HLG will be the much safer bet for the moment.
    Lets cross our fingers that Panny will figure this out with a firmware fix.

    ntblowz reacted to Parker in Panasonic S1H review / hands-on - a true 6K full frame cinema camera   
    I had a hands-on with the S1H at a camera store today and I have to say, it is a beast. I was really impressed with the OLED display on top -- has some cool features like displaying audio waveforms, stuff like that, and I also love how easy it is to pick framerates, compression and codec of choice, etc.  I thought it would seem substantially bigger than the S1 with the addition of the fan and extra screen hinge, but it felt very good in the hand. The new 24-70 2.8 is smaller and lighter than I thought it would be as well. The Panasonic employees were very friendly and knowledgeable and had a couple interesting tidbits to say -- non officially -- about the S1 possibly getting that pesky high framerate auto-exposure issue fixed in a future firmware update. I hope so! I tried to get some tidbits about raw outpout with Atomos, supposedly they're going to display fully-functioning raw out of the S1H at IBC, so that should be interesting. 

    All in all, it got me even more excited about this monster of a camera, if the long life of the GH5 is any indication, it's going to be a very worthwhile investment for the next 3 to 4 years at least.
