    Interesting. Looks like they're working on making the R primarily for photos again, and hopefully, the SIII will see actual proper improvements for video. Or not, and I have 0 reason to upgrade, which will also make me happy.

    150 Mbits LGOP only at the moment, not really the perfect codec...
    The title of the post is C200 or 1Dx II for 4k 60p ....on paper both ar better than EVA1 for the OP. Real life could be different

    @ssrdd 4K ain't worth the price (or the effort). I will stop shooting video until 8K cameras cost less than 999$.

    C'mon @BTM_Pix, overheating is a feature...An important innovation, helping shooters to plan their takes carefully. It simply doesn't make sense nowadays to shoot Godfather IV in a single, continuous take. Overheating warnings are nothing but artistic reminders...

    Typical Sony Skin Tones Grading Session: 
    1. Pull towards magenta.
    2. Pull back to green. 
    3. Pull a bit more back to magenta. 
    4. A little nudge towards green.
    5. Slight more magenta.
    6. Increment of green. 
    7. Too magenta, or too green? 
    8. Arrgh sod it, looks good enough. 
    The A6500 has the best skin tones at the lower end. 
    FS7 and F55 and barely any different. 
    The issue I've found is mostly the suspect white balance on Sony consumer cameras. Doesn't work as expected. This causes crap looking footage uploaded to Vimeo. 
    On the VENICE, it looks like if you press button on it, a building nearby will explode.

    With the new firmware 2.0 update, the Panasonic GH5 becomes the first 5K 10bit H.265 mirrorless camera, and you don't even need an anamorphic lens to join the party.

    ssrdd reacted to jpfilmz in LOL Canon... C200 Codec "Upgrade" details announced   
    To be brutally honest....Most camera reviewers and early adopters do a PISS poor job of filming good subject matter and showing off the strengths of the camera being evaluated.  They WASTE so much time blabbing about tech specs and and showing themselves on screen TALKING about features of the camera VS shooting something and SHOWING the features.  No one wants to watch 3 minutes of a talking head and 1 minute of sample clips.  Take for instance the C100...folks swear its merely a documentary camera.  Below are some test shots I took for a web series I'm working on with the C100MK2. Clog with light grade upscaled to 4k.  I'm betting the C200 looks even better.

    4k 400mbps is lie or clic bait from initial advertisements
    4k 60fps is 8bit in year 2017
    2k 240fps is cropped with 8bit in year 2017
    5.7k resolution is God knows when upgrade and not internal
    2500 ISO max usable
    No Autofocus
    How cool is it for calling 7500/- cheap!
    I think after canon, Panasonic started smoking same shit in my opinion. Overall its a marketing gimmick in year 2017.

    ssrdd reacted to Antonis in RED RAVEN. Only available in Apple Store.   
    Red basically realized they were selling the Raven way too cheap. 
    Pretty sure the profit margin on this new package deal went way up.
    Old "Basic I/O Package" Red Raven price was:
    RED RAVEN BRAIN w/ Media Bay / Canon EF Mount
    DSMC² Base I/O V-Lock Expander
    1 x RED MINI-MAG - 120GB
    DSMC² Universal Handle
    1-Year Standard Warranty
    $9,950 / $1,000 Deposit
    Now they throw in a FCPX code, two IDX batteries, a Sigma lens and a hardcase all "valued" at around $2000
    and sell the new package for $14,999.95.
    Smart move if you ask me.

    True, assigning dollar amounts to features is a crude way of evaluating a camera. But I think my overall point stands: at this point, with what we know or can reasonably assume about the camera (GH5 LSI, AF performance), the camera is overpriced- even when disregarding the GH5 and strictly comparing to it's intended competitors (FS5/7/7II, C300II, UMP, C200).
    I also think assuming the EVA will be a Varicam at half the price is a bit foolhardy- at least when recording internally. Processing and codec are very important parts of the image pipeline, and if it's the GH5 LSI in the EVA, I doubt it will be packing Varicam magic into 150Mbps. Surely the image will be a bit nicer than the GH5's, just because of the better sensor: but quadruple-the-cost better?
    I'm betting the EVA will be a lot like the FS5- nice form factor, nice sensor, really nice image when outputting raw to a (bulky, fiddly, expensive) external recorder.... weak-ish internal codec that's a lot closer to what's in their consumer photo cams (GH5 or A-series, respectively) than their pro cams (Varicam or FS7/7II/F5).

    It's similar to VR- lots of hype but until certain elements are massively improved, these technologies won't be desired by the mainstream. There will be casualties along the way, though neither will completely disappear. At some point in the future, when VR gets 3D without glasses and computational cameras produce quality HDR 3D video (from high quality 3D depth data), they'll get married and everyone will be happy.
