  1. The A73 is the first and only mature MILC. That is reflected in the sales. And it is mostly bought for photography by enthusiasts. Using tamron lenses my guess. Would be interesting to see sales numbers for lenses, that could be more telling. I think those are the numbers that canikon are looking at. They are lens makers after all. Unlike Sony who are makers of electronics. Nikons problem is that nobody who bought a nikon in the last 5 years for photography will get massive upgrade from going MILC. their dslrs are still sufficient for the casual shooter. Simply no need to upgrade yet. Another 4 years maybe.
  2. So where is that raw announcement?
  3. i dont think canon cares what nikon does. nikon did it because they have nothing to loose. canon care more about their eos line. also raw is not that of a big deal for most. a good compressed codec, fast turnaround, thats what most want. and thats what canon is good at. but i was wrong on panasonic going fullframe, so maybe i just lack imagination...
  4. i dont think canon will give anybody fullframe raw with dual pixel af for 2400€ even if its only 1080. tweet was a typo, now they fixed it.
  5. hi andrew! thanks so much for the material and your efforts. to me it seems like the creamy look you describe has more to do with the lens used. but i have to say i really like the colors of these FF panasonics. neutral but not clinical. all the daylight shots i have seen so far had a very realistic feel to them without beeing just technically right. there´s something about the contrast and the colors the camera produces that put me in close contact with the images, they involve me emotionally. hard to put in words, but somehow theres a nostalgia in them like they were aiming their color response on a film emulsion where the shadows lean slightly towards blue. good to hear your´back, can´t wait for your upcoming comparisons. i´m in the market for a raw camera and am very curious about what nikon can achieve with prores raw. it will be more expensive than blackmagic, but if its a nice image i´ll go that route i think. do you by any chance have a BMCC or BMPC4k lying around? i´d love to see a comparison between those and the pocket 4k. i really like the texture and grittyness of the older blackmagics but i hate how they handle and how the image can fall apart if you are not careful.
  6. Andrew, I'm impatiently waiting for your pocket4k review! Can't wait to see what look you get out of it! 8k should give us nice HD, so why not!
  7. respect andrew! it takes a lot to admit to a mistake, even more so publicly! i know you get a lot of abuse for putting your honest opinion out there. amzing work over the years, please keep it up! i come here regularily for your opinion which is usually against the grain which i enjoy!
  8. so calling out sexism and racism and connecting it with eurocentrims is peronalizing things? a post that starts with excusing sexism is useless no matter what arguments follow.
  9. is it your british upbringing or a personal trauma that is responsible for the sexist and racist bias in this post? where is the connection between the sexist joke in the elevator, black panther and Lars van Trier? there is none. it is all very differnt things. the only connection are your own white boy tears. this post shows what you are made of and it is a little sad. i feel sorry for you that you expose yourself in this way on the internet. i know another person who would argue in the same way as you. currently he´s president of the united states.
  10. i think you are reading the the list of cameras in the tribeca film festival wrong. if any companies should worry, it´s sony and panasonic. the F5/55 can´t even challenge red. if the GH2/3/4 offer superior video quality to canon then, where are they? (damn the color science, damn the FF look, damn using eos lenses natively, damn the marketing strategy!) you, the writer of this blog, are wealthy enough to own a 1Dc, next to numerous other imaging devices. so for you to whine about canon is as hypocrite as taylor swifts whining about apple paying her a couple of millions less this year.
  11. hi andrew, great work as usual! what lenses were you using for the 1:1 crop? sorry if this has been asked before, but there´s 18 pages of comments already...
  12. my switar 10mm 1.6 vignettes quite strongly on my j1.
  13. i think the ikonoskop looks more cinematic to some, including me, because of the higher black levels. in projection film never had as low blacks as digital. this makes the image look less crisp and adds to the nice filmic softness. the grade of the bmcc with the dark blacks seems to swallow information in the shadows, while the dark greys seem to make the iko image richer or more balanced in information. so maybe it´s also a question of grading, of not bringing down the blacks as far as technically possible but to go for a slight grey tone that gives me the impression that i could look into the shadows if i wanted to.   great comparison! thanks!
  14. looks very nice. the only thing that bothers me is the rolling shutter at the boxer. in his left right movements his head looks kinda wobbly. probably pronounced by the slow-mo.
  15.     it is true of course that the difference between ff and crop sensor is small.   but it would be fun to do the experiment. some medium dof shots, some interior, some exterior. probably i will fail!
