  1. I recall some discussion about this awhile back - think it was here on EOSHD forums. Anyways, looks super simple. Can't wait to try it. https://hackaday.com/2020/07/18/an-hdmi-monitor-from-your-phone/
  2. Actually looks like it may swing and tilt (just not sure it swings into selfie mode) https://www.slashcam.de/images/news/PanasonicS1R_display-14634_PIC3.jpg
  3. Am I correct in that once we get global shutters into mirrorless cameras, they'll be no need for the mechanical shutter? Do flashes and strobes sync properly with global electronic shutters? Perfect spot to place an electronic variable ND! With electronic shutters currently offering a broader range of shutter speeds than mechanical shutter (at the expense of a rolling readout) I could see this being the next big thing. Maybe even that full frame Panasonic does away with the mechanical shutter if they are able to implement a global shutter. Would probably help reduce flange distance.
  4. I think you are close to hitting the nail on the head. I don't foresee Canon ever putting something like this together in a product. It's is somewhat kind of the ideal system revolving around a 4/3 chip - interchangeable pl-style mounts that can have speedboosters built in or just passive adapters. I could see this being a route Panasonic or Black Magic could go, but now are blocked from doing so because of this stupid patent. So many good ideas throughout history have probably been lost to big companies buying patents to minimize competition and never get a chance to come to fruition.
  5. Bumping this thread. I've run a few tests though don't have them with me as I'm traveling, but I could see a significant difference with some heavy grading. Straight out of camera, even on 10-bit monitor, I couldn't see any difference. When I'm back home and have some spare time, I'll try to post some of my findings and tests. In the meantime, anyone do any of these side by side tests?
  6. Very happy about this Funny I saw on another forum (don't think it was here), someone who was claiming that no one uses timecode anymore and that this was pointless to feature this. I couldn't disagree more. TOD TC has been a lifesaver in countless situations, and when doing work for broadcast, the editors (more so the assistant editors who have to do the initial camera grouping) I work with always stress having TOD timecode that is synced among all the cameras. I can see if you're a OMB with one or two cams and only so much footage, that TC would be less of a concern. But for episodic m
  7. Thanks Luke! This looks great! Thinking if it's not the EVA S35 sensor that's the "big" thing, then it may very well be much improved SNR for cleaner, noise-free images with a greater range of ISO. Also DR seems to be pretty spectacular in all of the images you shared with us. Perhaps this is due to not a larger sensor, but maybe larger pixels due to an overall lower pixel count. Please keep the teasers coming - not asking you to reveal anything (don't want any trouble for you and your Panasonic NDA), just rather a few more frame grabs and BTS shots until official launch would sweet. Sure th
  8. Where did you read this? This indeed would be a killer feature and hopefully it's standard TC protocols so it can be jam synced with other cameras. Used a JVC years ago that jammed fine with other identical Jvc cameras but not with other cameras and devices.
  9. @Neumann Films Any additional frame grabs or BTS shots you can share with us while we wait for the official announcement?
  10. In all honesty, S35 or not, whatever it is, it's going to be (to quote the one-eyed bandit here) "the bee's knees", the snake's hips, the kipper's knickers, the cat's whiskers, the monkey's eyebrows, the dog's bollocks, and so on
  11. So someone here hit the nail on the head - so the answer is in this thread somewhere. I'm still leaning on EVA sensor. Yes it seems a bit ridiculous for Panasonic to release a new GH5 iteration so soon and possibly for a crazy low price (if indeed it is S35 sensor) but the EVA sensor would probably be more cost effective than a new sensor when you consider R&D. Maybe they also sold less EVAs than expected so coukd repurpose sensor maybe? - just a thought. The argument that they wouldn't do it because of their lenses is a weak argument when you consider they added anamorphic modes and don'
  12. This is what I guessed too a few pages back. Being that Luke just pointed out that this was shot at T1.9 after the mention of the voigts and shallow dof, I am starting to believe the larger sensor possibility. Crazy as it may be, still think it could be an EVA sensor with M4/3 mount. Maybe I am just dreaming...
  13. While I don't have any concrete evidence to back this up, I'm putting my money on Panasonic putting the EVA sensor in this new GH5 which I'm calling the GHS35 The EVA conveniently has a 4/3rds crop mode which would compliment M4/3 lenses quite well with the correct mount. Could see it being similar to JVC LS300 with the variable scan mapping of the S35 sensor with M4/3 mount. Would explain how Luke is still getting full res anamorphic and would also explain the low-light capability with the dual native ISO. Makes more sense to me than organic sensor or Starvis sensor at this point since thes
  14. Thinking more and more that its going to be the EVA sensor that they put in this new GHS35 camera
  15. I originally though the "***** ****" was "super 35mm" and that it wasn't a new variation of the GH5, but rather a PL- mount adapter with a focal reducer built in to make m4/3 sensor into s35 sensor (like a speedbooster for PL glass), though Luke saying the adapter is by Wooden Camera throws that idea out the window. I really don't think it's a whole new camera so much as an add-on enhancement for the GH5. Just my two cents.
  16. Was just thinking about if they were to incorporate an ND, how could they do that.  Doesn't the $2k AC90 have one of these electronic NDs?
  17. All I can say is that it better have a relocatable grip with hand strap - similar to c100/300 series - simply put, more ergonomic.  Think there was even a patent out a few years back by Panasonic that showed a camera with a grip that extended out, maybe rotated.   It is so un-ergonomic to hold any still camera to your face for so long.  There is a major bend in the wrist for this to occur. Less so with tilting viewfinders (like GX7).  Without holding anything, move your right hand near your face as though your are holding a SLR style camera.  Then rotate your hand as
  18. I love my GH3's and really only could use a couple bug fixes such as the 1 hour freerun timecode jump that happens almost daily for me.  The playback issue in camera of some files once you reach a lot of files (usually only on 128GB cards but sometimes on the smaller cards too), as well as the jump in numbering that happens randomly.  All these bugs happen on both of my cameras.  As far as image quality is concerned, its more than adequate for what I shoot which is for television mostly in the US.   Though to be honest, the major feature I am hoping for (otherwise will at
  19. With all that extra resolution you could apply some serious software stailization, like the new warp stabilizer in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6! Also could do some sweet pan and scan like what done with this video (which originated at much lower quality): [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXRGPVLq8IA"]https://www.youtube....h?v=JXRGPVLq8IA[/url]
  20. Andrew, I have been a long time follower and even made the jump on the GH1 way back when I saw your early footage at the night market when you were shopping with your gf.  You seem to be one of the few HDSLR bloggers that really looks past all the marketing hype and focuses on what actually makes a camera good - from usability to image quality.  Just watched your demo reel and you inspired me to put a new one together as it had been 5 years since my last one. Any feedback would be appreciated :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1h3A1MrIBcU
  21. perhaps some music that is a bit more dynamic - something that doesn't sound so much like a loop.  Also, try making the clips a bit shorter and use some very basic transitions to keep it flowing.  Shots look good, otherwise!
  22. [quote author=Andrew Reid - EOSHD link=topic=53.msg53#msg53 date=1323215244] I am now exclusively using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 instead of Final Cut Pro and I have not yet found a way to crop the video to 1920×520 anamorphic when exporting out, oddly the crop feature doesn’t seem to do anything. But I have found that I prefer to have the black bars than the silly looking slim playback window on Vimeo when it is uploaded to there. So the video is actually 1920×1080 in full with borders rather than anamorphic sized. [/quote] If I am not mistaken, files to be uploaded to Vimeo, YouTube
