  1. Full frame cine/Eng hybrids will help with the transformation of the evening news into YouTube.
  2. It's really documentary where the crazy high DR becomes a major feature, no? In the early days of cinema feature filmmakers were lighting to film that held significantly less DR than any recent hybrid.
  3. It is an issue for Sony cameras. It's one of the reasons I've chosen Panasonic cameras. You only hear the complaints about the S cameras because it's what Panasonic users expect. This is supposed to be a hybrid camera and they haven't included one of the most useful features for video shooting.

    Panasonic LUMIX V1

    Chances of Panasonic putting SDI on a DSLR style body are maybe a smidge above zero.
  5. Yep. You either do it, or you don't.
  6. Haha at the thumbs down. It's a joke about black people being stupid and unintelligible - if you're going to post it in a public forum like this, own up to what it is.
  7. When they call it a 'true digital film camera', what they mean is that you need to always watch the capacity and reload it often. Only with batteries instead of film.
  8. Man, I *hope* they'll bring this thing to M43. It's a little ironic that this tech that's kept us M43 true believers faithful for years finally hits at a time when it seems Panasonic are shifting their professional push to the full frame world. Full frame is a shark infested red ocean market. I think getting a foothold there is much riskier than leveraging their existing M43 system with incredible tech that redefines the format, but I fear their execs see dollar signs from the higher margins of a fully 'pro' L-Mount system. I doubt there'll be a GH6s. I don't believe the GH5s has been a sales success, and its existence depended on a fairly novel sensor from Sony. As a security sensor, that thing could stay on the market for years , and if Panasonic/Blackmagic aren't putting in a pre-order soon then I don't see the need for a replacement before the Tokyo Olympics (presumed GH6 launch deadline). If the organic sensor is as wondrous as claimed, there'd be little need for a GH6s anyway.
  9. Will be close to ideal once the D-tap cord is widely available. A better option than the dummy battery, since you could charge a real battery as you run the camera.
  10. I'd trade IBIS for a proper 4mm MFT filter stack.
  11. It depends on how you shoot. It might not be a major issue for many, but I draw a lot of inspiration from the aesthetic of directors who make prominent use of ultra wides like Terry Gilliam, Terrence Malick and Michael Mann (of late), so it is for me.
  12. It would be good to see some infinity focus tests on the Voigtlander 17.5 - that lens has quite a bit of field curvature.
  13. Hollywood loves the Alexa for its reliability as much as anything else.
  14. What kind of performance did you get out of the 60w version?
