  1. So, potentially same thing could be done with the A7s 4K footage that was recorded to an external 4K recorder?
  2. Isn't 8 bit 4:2:2 to external recorder a bit disappointing?
  3. Hi Andrew, would you say the video quality is better than GM1/GX7? Thanks!
  4. I wonder what of clean HDMI output it will have... ? I just bought a GX7 and am planning to buy GH4 when it comes out. I do have BMCC but it's so heavy and cumbersome I almost hate it at times... Image quality is spectacular though and that is the saving grace of BMCC. In any case, wondering how A6000 would compare to GX7? I woulnd't want to buy into a new lens system, but A6000 as a body could be used with my legacy lenses.. Thanks for the news and review Andrew.
  5. Andrew, nice post! Thank you. I'm wodnering what do you think of GX7 video mode? Are they the same? Does GX7 do the full pixel readout as well?
  6. If they are trying to entice videographers, well... videographers already have an excellent camera  - Panasonic GH3  - that does everything and more much much better for the same price.
  7. Andrew, I hope you're right!  But Sony is just a big business with long term money making strategy.  I have a suspicion all of their decisions are based on some complex algorithms that don't take human emotions and artistic notions in account :)  Blackmagic wanted to break through on the other hand and it made sense for them to offer everything they had up their sleeves.  But I do hope you're right!
  8.     We can surely dream on while SONY chuckles cynically :)
  9. The camera itself does look quite tasty for indie documentary work.  XLR inputs are great.  Uncompressed video sounds great as well, however let's see how it's handled in terms of sensor processing.     A7 video capabilities were quite disappointing.  But that was to be expected.  At 2K range Sony won't take a chance at cannibalizing their upper end market.  I maybe ignorant, but I don't see a lot of wisdom behind this kind of reasoning.  Professionals will never use DSLR type of camera as their main camera.  They would only buy it as a second body (B camera), crash camera, etc.  A7 would sell even more and there is no chance it would cannibalize pro market.  Consumers and prosumers for the most part usually don't have money to buy pro level cameras anyway, so they will stick with DSLR no matter what. Hence, if they want best DSLR video quality they are forced to look elsewhere (i.e. GH3).  So, here too Sony looses customers.  Small percentage of prosumers who have a chance at becoming pro will eventually purchase Pro level cameras, so where is cannibalization here?     What the hell SONY? 
  10. @yellow  So you mean he doesn't have to do anything?  His footage is fine?
  11. Has anyone every used Flaat Picture Profile for Nikon?     http://www.similaar.com/foto/flaat-picture-controls/index.html   I'm wondering if you have any comments and think this would work with the D5200.   Thanks!
  12. Andrew, you mentioned that you'd get around to reviewing GH3 qualities vis-a-vis other DSLR's and also on it's own merit.  I'm wondering if you're still planning that review?  I'm sure a lot of people are looking forward to it.  I know I am.  It will be very interesting to hear your opinion, whenever you get a chance.  Thanks
