  1. What impresses me the most about EOSHD is Andrew's transparency and accountability. The Canon XC10 and the Olympus E-M1 II are two examples where Andrew is transparent enough to change his assessment based on new information. He tells it like it is with no obligation to pay lip service to the big corporations. Not getting a GH5 sample to preview can be a good thing, as he is not pressured to heap praise where it is not warranted.
  2. How usable is the continuous autofocus? I'm looking for something more reliable than the GH4, and am considering a mushy 1080p Canon for my run and gun needs just to get Dual Pixel.
  3. Great work! Are all of these shots handheld with IBIS?
  4. Thanks for the footage Mercer! While the AF doesn't seem to be as bulletproof as Canon's Dual Pixel, it does seem like an improvement to past DFD implementations. I'm on the fence between the FZ2500 and the XC10. Does the FZ2500 have Auto ISO with exposure compensation in manual mode? It seems to be consistently absent from all Panasonic and Olympus cameras, but I was hoping that the addition of ND filters would also introduce Auto ISO.
  5. Awesome news on the LX100 added to the compatibility. I was thinking of selling mine due to the dreadful skin tones and magenta cast on lips, but this EOS Pro Color makes me think twice. Now if Andrew can add Dual Pixel AF to a Panasonic, I can officially dump my Canon gear
  6. Mercer, nice video! A couple questions: - Was this shot with auto or manual focus? How do you find the reliability of the continuous auto focus? - How is the stabilization in 4K? I found the FZ1000 to be a bit skittish and jittery, similar to the Panasonic 35-100 2.8 lens.
  7. How well does auto focus in video mode work? Prior DFD implementations were abysmal, and continuous video AF seems to be the last unaddressed weakness of the micro 4/3s system.
  8. The only feature I'm interested in is C-AF. If it can focus in video more reliably than my Sonys, then I'll likely pick one up. Otherwise, I'll get an 80D for run and gun AF.
  9. How is the auto focus on this with native m43 glass? It's hard to find much coverage on the LS300
  10. As much as I dislike Canon's practice of crippling their DSLR's, there's things like color and DPAF that prevent me from selling off my Canon gear. As Michael Corleone said in Godfather III: "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in."
  11. Gorgeous color, but I think I prefer the 1DXII footage ever so slightly. Pound for pound though the X-T2 is unparalleled for the price.
  12. This makes the E-M1 mkII's rumored price of $2,000+ look even more outrageous. The pricing of the new m4/3 flagships need to come back to earth.
  13. This will be the tipping point for me in choosing a new m4/3 body. Panasonic's DFD isn't cutting it for me for run-and-gun scenarios, and I'll likely pass on the GH5 if it doesn't have some sort of PDAF or dual pixel for improved C-AF.
  14. Looks like the engineers STILL haven't figured out Auto ISO + Exposure Comp in manual mode video in all these new releases. GH5 maybe?
  15. As puzzling as it is to release a top spec'd A-mount camera, I commend Sony for STILL supporting a legacy mount, and rewarding long-term users with a current body. Samsung could learn a thing or two from this practice!
