  1. I do wonder if this interview was in response to the Olympus announcement along with the Canon coming announcements. If you believe the rumor site that initially leaked the Olympus closing then Sony has begun to start re-evaluating their camera business. It depends on how long Sony believe the losses will continue. Sony has been know to leave businesses quickly if they don't see a quick turnaround. http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/24019/sony-will-be-sony-group-could-move-cameras-division-into-separate-company
  2. I remember seeing a number of complaints related to Panasonic lenses not being repairable with the 100-400 getting mentioned a few times with more recently the 10-25 f1.7. These are expensive lenses and I don't believe Olympus lenses having the same issues. That is interesting regarding the RF lens issue but the only reference I could find at Lensrental was the reference to the linear focus system but that would be an issue with all mirrorless lenses.
  3. Reading between the lines it sound like RAW may come at a later date and we still don't know if 4K60p will have a crop. At least it looks like 10-bit 4:2:2 is coming.
  4. Some interesting comments from dpreview Sony Interview. https://www.*BAD_URL*/interviews/2430888908/exclusive-sony-confirms-a7s-ii-successor-this-summer-everything-is-new
  5. More details leaked on the R6. Unless you need 8K or RAW then this looks like a nice alternative to the R5. https://www.canonrumors.com/here-are-more-canon-eos-r6-specifications-cr2/ Canon EOS R6 Specifications: (New information in BOLD) 20mp full-frame CMOS sensor IBIS 12fps mechanical and 20fps electronic. Oversampled 5K Video 4K @ 60p FullHD @ 120p Canon Log 10-bit Zebras AF identical to the EOS R5 No RAW video mode Dual SD UHS-II slots Head detection AF Animal detection AF Identical 5 million dot EVF as the EOS R5 No top-down screen Build quality not as good as the EOS R5 Bluetooth 4.2 (EOS R5 to get Bluetooth 5.0) LP-E6NH Battery (Same as the EOS R5) Announcement July 9, 2020 Under $2500 USD (Rumored)
  6. Yes, the stacked sensor with DRAM is the real reason for the faster sensor readout. But the cost to include the DRAM on a 108mp sensor is probably too cost prohibitive for a while yet, so in effect the greater MP is limiting the sensor readout speed. I prefer Sony's approach and hope that others will follow. We don't need higher MP or 8k for a phone camera.
  7. An interesting comment from Sony on the 108mp sensors vs the latest 12mp sensor. https://www.dpreview.com/news/8550800535/sony-provides-an-in-depth-look-at-the-sony-xperia-1-ii-camera-tech "Sony says the conventional design of the sensor offers faster read-out speeds than the pixel-binning Quad-Bayer technology deployed in most current high-end phones. The entire sensor can be read out in 10ms versus 32ms for a 12MP image from a Quad-Bayer sensor."
  8. A Firmware update? https://www.dpreview.com/news/4713396795/panasonic-announces-5-9k-prores-raw-video-for-lumix-dc-s1h
  9. To further clarify the Asterisk. (When in 8K RAW, 8K/4K DCI modes.)

  11. The best news is that they have delayed the next show until May 2022. Hopefully they keep it to every 2 years.
  12. If you have Rubbing Alcohol lying around you can create your own sanitizer containing at least 2/3 rubbing alcohol and the rest with Aloe Vera Gel.
  13. It will be interesting to compare how the different health systems respond. There could be a higher percentage of non-reported case in the US if people cannot afford to go to a clinic or hospital as it seems that the government hasn't reacted quick enough to setup the necessary infrastructure for testing. This will lead to further spreading of the virus. I live in the largest province in Canada and they will be closing all schools for the next 3 weeks. I expect the rest of Canada to implement something similar over the next couple of days.
