  1. The 4k mode on the top dial instead of 6k like the G9/GH5 suggests this has an older sensor/processor. I would expect a large crop for 4k.
  2. Some minor changes to the body. https://www.nokishita-camera.com/2019/03/blog-post_26.html

    Some interesting comments from Sony on how the Camera upgrade came about. https://www.trustedreviews.com/news/sony-xperia-phones-finally-getting-alpha-style-cameras-3666962 The knock-on effect was that Alpha guru Kimio Maki is now head of product development for Sony Mobile and actually stopped production on what would have been a Sony XZ3. “He said “okay, so we work with Alpha here, let’s take this bit, we work with the CineAlta brand, let’s bring this bit”. He opened up the whole of digital imaging for us.” “Because that imaging team is all together, they can share that experience across Cybershot, Alpha and Xperia”, he added. Which sounds like a spectacularly sensible approach that should bear some tasty fruits for smartphone photographers. Presumably this also means we’ll start to start more Alpha features flooding into Xperia phones? “It’s possible. If it’s software, it could be possible to bring it across. A closer collaboration with Alpha is a definite, thanks to the management change that’s happened in Tokyo with Mobile now belonging to Imaging.” There have also previously been issues with interdepartmental rivalry stifling collaboration, Marsh admitted. “Even though we’re one company, there are still sometimes barriers that Alpha doesn’t want to give Mobile certain things, because all of a sudden you have the same as what a £3,000 camera’s got. “Now that barrier’s gone a little bit. They’re saying “okay, we see that having a smartphone and camera that gives you the same experience is a good thing”, he added.

    It looks like RED may have finally awaken the sleeping giant. It has always amazed me why Sony never applied their video and camera division experience to their smartphones.
  5. There is also a 15 minute recording limit for 4k60 and all other high-speed modes.
  6. The leaked specs suggest a heavy crop for 4k/60p with 6k only supporting 30fps. https://www.nokishita-camera.com/2019/01/lumix-s1s1r.html
  7. It looks like the same sensor and same EVF resolution from the e-M1ii. Also, the ND Filter cannot be used for video. https://www.43rumors.com/ft5-these-are-the-full-e-m1x-specs/
  8. More details leaked but little of it is specific to video. But there will be LOG https://photorumors.com/2019/01/18/more-leaks-olympus-e-m1x-and-new-flash-system-pictures-specifications-prices/ "Key OM-D Movie video capabilities: 4K and C4K, OM-Log400, Different levels of IS, 120 fps high-speed shooting in Full HD"
  9. Not much coming through the rumor site but today someone posted in the comments some of their experience at a hands-on event from 2 months ago. He specifically mentioned that the video specs were on par with the GH5S (including low-light ability). Only 7 days left until the official announcement.
  10. Nikon announced that ProRes Raw is coming in a future firmware update. Nikon also announced a Nikon Z 6 Filmmaker’s Kit for $4k. https://www.dpreview.com/news/7011682215/nikon-to-add-eye-af-raw-video-support-and-cfexpress-support-to-z-series
  11. It looks like Olympus might beat Panasonic to market with a built-in ND filter. Now this would be surprising. https://www.43rumors.com/ft5-the-olympus-e-m1x-also-has-a-live-nd-filter/
  12. Some things never change. https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/sr4-sony-a7siii-has-new-stacked-sensor-and-will-be-on-market-by-early-2019/ The development of α7sⅢ has been postponed because of heat issue.
  13. Someone in the comments today mentioned that it will support 4k 120p based on information from someone who has the camera. There is no mention if this involves a crop.
  14. I would think Panasonic would start with a 4k 12mp GH6s to reduce the demand on processing 8k. There will be enough heat generated from the sensor alone. This would also further separate the GH6 from the GH6s.
  15. What are you talking about? The article lists the 2 products they will come out with next year. 8K Multipurpose Camera AK - SHB 810 is a compact, lightweight, box - type camera that uses a PL lens mount. Equipped with 8K organic sensor which will be the first in the world... 8K / 4K / HD video output is possible from the camera unit and the image processing unit AK - SHU 810 connected with optical fiber cable...
