  1. I really hope you're right. Panasonic is one of the few camera brands that I really trust and satisfies me with their products despite them not being perfect (as such thing doesn't exist). Also considering i'm fully invested into Panasonic system as a lot of people here, it kind of makes me uncomfortable knowing they are hardly recovering from this bad financial year. Hope everything will be fine in the end.

  3. An indie feature film shot in anamorphic using the Panasonic S5 :
  4. I really think the image is pretty solid. Maybe the best 2000$ camera for video on the market right now :
  5. Not sure it will work as you need to then send them the invoice with the picture of the barcode and only after them checking everything they will send you the money back.
  6. Maybe not in the UK as all I see on the CVP website is the free Sigma 45mm or free XLR1 MICROPHONE ADAPTER offer. So yeah maybe not outside EU.
  7. I already have the 24-70 f2.8 and waiting for the primes that will be released by november. And I also have a 5 lenses kit of Samyang cinema lenses that I use on paid projects on my S1H. But what interest me in the 16-35 f4 is that its aperture is constant and it's kind of small, matching the small size of the S5. Also for me, f4 (and sometimes f5.6) is the sweet spot for shooting video in Full Frame in manual focus, it has that FF look with a little bit of blur in the background without being too hard to pull focus. So perfectly fine for me. i'd rather compromise a bit on the size than on the constant aperture compared to the 20-60.
  8. Ok so the price for the S5 is 2000 euros , then 1500 -600 euros for the Panasonic 16-35 = 2900 euros for the Panasonic S5 + Panasonic 16-35 f4 + Sigma 45mm f2.8 (FREE) ! I think it's worth it ! In europe the prices are 2300 euros for Panasonic + 20-60, check for yourself here : https://www.digit-photo.com/PANASONIC-Lumix-S5-20-60mm-f-3-5-5-6-rPANASONICDCS5KEK.html
  9. I have the Sigma with my S1H and it works really great. I think it's the best option right now.
  10. Yes but it would be great to have the -1 option as in the S1H.
  11. I think i'll pass on the 20-60 wich seems great for a kit lens but I'll end up buying it with the cashback offer on lenses. I think buying it with the 16-35 f4 wich gives you a 600 euros cashback and still having the 45mm from Sigma for free, it's quite a good deal. If I need more range I still have my Panasonic 24-70 f2.8. The 16-35 f4 is not large by any means so it pairs well with the S5 in my opinion. My personal kit would be the S5 and those two lenses I think :
  12. No it's available in France, and in other countires as I saw it so i'm pretty sure it works in Belgium !
  13. I'm pretty sure Panasonic won't make a lot of compromises. Just looking at their new 20-60 lens it may be a changing aperture lens, but it's parfocal, no focus breathing and weather sealed with a good image quality. I think this will be the same for those primes. I'm really waiting for them. I'll buy 2 first and 2 others at the end of the year. Exactly what i was waiting in this system.
  14. I should receive mine real soon (it is in transit), I will test it really soon cause I will have some run and gun shooting coming in the next weeks. I bought it purposely for these kind of situations when I want/need to go light and don't want to deal with my mattebox and if I need to be on a low profile to shoot on the streets. I have some variable circular NDS but I never liked circular VNDs always some issues and the fact to have several diameters for my lenses is problematic. My mattebox is quite light (Polarpro Basecamp Mattebox) but I want to be even lighter than this sometimes
  15. It seems Sony is close to reveal the new cinema camera FX6 wich appears at the end of this video released today :
  16. My hope also but I'm pretty sure they'll be more in the 800$ price range unfortunately.
  17. https://www.l-rumors.com/last-minute-leaked-s5-info-future-update-will-come-to-support-anamorphic-shooting/ "– An update will come later this year for the S5 to give support to 5,9K 29,97p/4K DCI/3,5K Anamorphic via Atomos Ninja V recorder – 2 new picture profiles: L Monochrome S and L Classic Neo – V-Log and V-Gamut are included, no additional fees – Panasonic will announce 7 (!) “affordable” lenses: 24mm, 35mm, 50mm et 85mm ( available in November < 1000€) with F1.8 aperture, a 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 zoom and a bright wide angle lens" I personnally think this is insane for the price point to be able to record 6K out of the Ninja V ! Perfect B-Cam to the S1H! The primes are all I've been expected for. Let's go Panasonic !! PS : what's left for Panasonic S1 buyers? An firmware update for sure !
  18. Nokishita spotted a new Fuji camera that has just been certified. Fuji Rumors don't say a lot about it as they tell people to wait a bit before giving us some bits of information about it. It seems to have the same wireless communication module that the upper Fuji model like the X-Pro 3. The announcement day should be on October 16th. Is it possible to see an X-H2 announcement out of the blue?
  19. It's normal that they introduce this body before any new GH body, it's a new mount, they need it to sell better than it already did. The fact that there aren't a lot of choice in lenses is not a reality, there is plenty of choice between Panasonic, Leica and Sigma (and others too) and you can adapt every possible vintage lens from the past. The real problem is that the sigma lenses are the only to be affordable, but they don't focus in a-fc wich is a bummer for a native lens... Until Panasonic release more affordable lenses like the three primes that will probably be announced soon, and until Sigma doesn't deliver lenses made specifically for L-mount that focus as well as panasonic ones, the problem will remain. And don't worry, a gh6 will come. No doubt. They just need to help L-mount sales to increase a bit before announcing it!
  20. Yup the S line are incredible cameras, the only real drawback is the lack of reliable/good continuous AF in video (as it's actually quite good and effective in stills mode). But other than that, great cameras.
  21. Yes they definitely should ! Would be so nice if it's uncropped. i get used to the crop with my S1H but uncropped on the S5 would be a nice addition as I will take it as my B-cam. Also I didn't see that it has a micro HDMi port, but as my S1H is the main camera, the atomos Ninja V will be 99% of the time on it and I'll use the S5 only with the tilt screen so no problem. I didn't get this excited for a camera release since a very long time (since the S1H last year maybe, even the A7sIII and R5/R6 didn't get me this excited).
