  1. I actually have never bought an IPhone and this 6C is the one i am considering mainly for the camera. Would you say it something that is of comparable of quality to a Sony RX100 Mk I or what pocket cam? Is it a viable 'B' cam? That video looks really good. I also have an LX100 but its not pocketable.
  2. I like the LX100. Its fun and has the feel of a fllmmaker cam. I would get the LX100 (over the FZ1000) to couple with a future GH5.
  3. Unbelievable camera...... Looking forward to the review and curious how it compares to the GH4. Its close to ideal but if it could be possible to add a higher frame rate/SloMo in the firmware, it would be perfect.
  4. I agree with Kadajawi. 7DMkII will be a small notch above the T5i. I personally would not be interested if it does not have at least 4K.
  5. Hopefully going to NAB2014

  6. Saw the movie earlier today. It may have been the last day too at the theater. Impressed with the overall look on the big screen with the hack. The story is more psychological thriller to me but it takes you on a journey of confusion. Its pretty far out there and it does it well. 
  7. Patience has paid off. :) I think we can assume it'll be just a matter of time for MFT on the 4K cam as well. The 7-14 lens will be in demand. Wish Panny would update that.
  8.   4K RAW has arrived at 4K price. Patience has paid off.  It'll be a good while though before it becomes available but at least we know where to go. So, i'll guess it should be available in a year time to most of us. Like you said Sanveer....this just exposed all the weak marketing and pricepoints of the entire Canon line. 
  9. Hmm....i've always considered the RX100 as a supplement more then a replacement or direct comparison to GH2/GH3. Its asking alot for it to have DR like BMC but nothing is impossible and the new toys just keep amazing us. I bypassed the GH3 cause i think it would be better suited for the next GH5 or cinecam to look at with 4K. I mainly shoot landscapes and i love the hacked GH2 look. You could buy that used and save money and then later get the next incarnation which might be announced monday. GH3 is better for stills for sure but i can't say its at the MkII level. It just seems like one more gen is the right time. I would definitely keep the RX100. Its a fun cam
  10. My fave cam is the RX100 this year. It allows you to go anywhere/everywhere. Such a relief not to carry anything. It brought a new dimension and is a nice sidekick to hacked GH2. I decided to skip the other offerings till its all 4K.
  11. A few Q's i have and am looking for as the cam becomes available and tested. 1) Is the Low-Light ISO ability now more comparable to MkIII? 2) Is the Stills-quality/ability on par with OM-D? If not, how close? Stills comparisons to MkIII/MkII as well. 3) What areas of the cam are hackable? Will be looking forward to learning about these. I love the body and pro-quality cosmetics of the GH3. Very nice. The release of the GH3>release of MkIII. Better newer product from previous version. Thank You for 1080/60! Not considering the BMCC till v2.0. I think the GH3 is more up my alley but i am also leaning on waiting till there is a price-drop. Still very happy with hacked GH2. Can you convince me to 'not wait'? :)
  12. Interested in the stills-capability. I know the video will be incredible. The 'high iso-performance'....are we talking MkII or MkIII level for lowlight? Will it be similar to OM5 for stills imagery? If so, this definitely would be dSLR of the year.
  13. I would love to see a full-frame point/shoot. ;)
  14. [quote name='dreams2movies' timestamp='1344500192' post='15176'] Hey guys and fellow GH2 owners.. I'm trying to decide between the Pancake 20mm F1.7 or the Leica 25mm F1.4... I know right, I don't owner either of these two lovely lens.. I may end up getting both in the end, but because have to buy one at a time, I ned to choose between them.. I'm slightly leaning towards the 25mm Leica, because of it's name, the nano lens that 20mm does not have, and F1.4 vs. F1.7... However SO many more people own the 20mm F1.7 and it may be because its cheaper.. at about $356 vs. $500... Any one have some nice photo shots of the 25mm leica and 20mm pancake? Would like to compare them through images.. Also the Panasonic Fisheye is a bit expensive, and the Panasonic 14mm F2.5 Prime pancake looks nice, wish the aperture was bigger.. I would get the Noktor 12mm T1.6 before the 14mm. [/quote] You're only looking at a difference of $144 according to your prices. The question i always ask is how much more am i getting or bang4buck with the extra difference in price '$144'. Imo, you get quite a bit more with the Leica. @nahua: Excellent points.
  15. Its exciting to see how this camera has faired this year. Would you feel confident in using this cam as a primary Timelapse cam then the MkII/MkIII? Its great to hear the how good the stills are with this new IS. I don't know if i would sell my MkII though. There is already a rumor of a new OM-D that will be above this. Very interested.
  16. I looked at the clips at 2 different times. First: B (GH2), H (F65), C (Red), I (FS100) Second: H (F65), B (GH2), C (Red), A (F3) I'll never buy the expensive cams and i'm glad with the results. The Canons and Iphone ended up last. I love detail, resolution, colors of the GH2, F65. This verifies I don't need to spend on the 'higher-end' as i thought. Not the best bang4buck proved again. Really interested to see GH3/BM Cam next round.

    Shot this almost 2 months ago. Extremely beautiful area. Unhacked w/14-140. [url="https://vimeo.com/43404154"]http://www.vimeo.com/43404154[/url]
  18. Looks like this cam is going to be shipped this month according to pre-orders! Look forward to footage and experiences!
  19. @FilmMan: Thanks for that report. Thats encouraging to know!
  20. Excellent roundup. I've been looking forward to the GH3 more then any other cam. I really want that 1080/60--720/120. If they can keep the price under 1K w/weather-sealing, that would be very impressive. I am also waiting for the next version of the 7-14 w/threads....please.
  21. My faves w/o thinking too much were: B,H,C,A,I. If the GH2 is B or in that group, i would absolutely be floored.
  22. [quote author=gene_can_sing link=topic=803.msg5782#msg5782 date=1338562487] Yeah, that's a total joke. As for the Emmys being bought, it happened a long time ago. It's been all politics for years. An older guy that owns a studio that I freelance at sometimes here in LA, are voters for the Academy Awards. Him and his wife get so much free stuff around Oscar season to sway his vote. Good for them, bad for neutrality. [/quote] This says it all. These award shows are also just entertainment. Its not to be taken serious.
