  1. "half of them fake and the other half only there to look at wedding dresses." ??? Joke aside, you're right about that kind of dishonest influencer comments, but you know what? real professionals or true enthusiasts just ignore those guys and know who to listen when looking for opinions.
  2. You just can't go wrong with any of these cameras, just need to work on the weakness of each one, the most important thing is to keep a nice balance between image and sound, you need to get your light right, your sound right, nice B-roll and nice interviews shots, preferably with two cameras. I'm pretty sure that you can get a lovely image from any of these cameras, I used an Om-Em5 like 4 years ago (lovely camera btw) for a pilot show and worked perfectly fine, now I'm using two GH5 and a Sony a7s with 4k video recorder, mostly when I need a lovely full-frame look or a low lighting situation, but coming from the GH1 and now the GH5 and after using differents cameras through all these years, I can't leave keeping recommending the GH5/GH4, not only gives an image that works for almost all 90% of our video productions but something that for me is essential in the field, and is reliability, it works all the time no matter the situation, I just can count with the Lumixes, are very versatile cameras, well built, nice size, excellent options for video and audio recording. Photo image quality of the GH5 and the OM-EM1 MKII are very similar, maybe the autofocus tracking system on the Oly could be more reliable. Enjoy your production.

  4. Maybe Sony was waiting to see competitor guns before announce this, I hope can compete against the XT-2 with improved build construction, ergonomics, heat dissipation, earphone jack and IBIS, just as Cinegain says, An OM-D E-M1 MKII with ASPC sensor.
  5. My opinion: -A Sony FS100(used), nice image and audio support this give you a great 1080p image in a relative small package. -A GH4 with a YAGH interface. But if the LX100 image is enough for you then just get a external audio recorder as the Tascam DR70D or DR60MKII the form factor is very helpfull for small cameras and sync in post always use a clamp sound between takes for easy sync.
  6. As far as I know, Macs can use Cudas too.
  7. I'm Mac/PC user, but I really don't like Imacs, if the form factor suite you take a look on this: http://www.digitalstorm.com/aura.asp 34" screen, better specs (configurable) and reasonable price. Or go for a used nMac Pro, it can be found online from $3000.
  8. The "new mac pro" is very portable, I'm using this, when i need go to work outside home http://www.casecruzer.com/apple-mac-pro/mac-pro-monitor-case.html Or you can check out this guy did: A friend of mine do something similar but with the wacom Cintiq.
  9. I used the Canon FD 35-105mm f3.5, pretty good and almost parafocal.
  10. I do really love the Olympus OM series, they very small, light and well build. I have a FD series too but I do prefer the look of the Olympus.

    My big concerns with any Sony camera is the overheating and the LCD screen protector than tend to degraded on some cameras.
  12. A s35mm sensor with m4/3 mount is available in the JVC LS300 camera, so, yes, still a posibilty. But i don't think that Panasonic take that route, but yes the GH5 need to make a huge step forward to compete against Sony offerings. 2.5k RAW recording, 13 stops, clean 3200 ISO and in body stabilization is what I'm waiting for the GH5.

    Sony never mention to include "Heat dispersion" in their products, I wonder why
