  1. I've mentioned in some places (even commenting in one post here in EOSHD, I think) that my dream MFT camera would be one with the GH5s sensor with options to turn on or off the Quad-Bayer (like these 40-48mp smartphones are doing). You would have 40mp stills option to work with good light, 10mp to work with low light, and maybe (don't know if it is possible because of the Quad Bayer arrangement) a 20mp with some kind of interpolation. And for video, the excellent 4k of the GH5s / BMPCC 4k. Put is on a camera with IBIS, and the deal is done. Maybe is the plan for the GH6. And a GX10 like this (even with a 30min 4l record limit) would sell like hotcakes.
  2. Indeed, the sensor looks not a regular 4/3 - in fact looks like it have a 16:9 aspect. Is it the case, @DaveAltizer?
  3. Newsshooter made some footage with a prototype in Las Vegas. https://www.newsshooter.com/2019/04/08/we-take-sharps-upcoming-8k-micro-four-thirds-camera-for-a-spin/ Interestingly, Sharp says that the sensor is not QuadBayer, and it is a 33mp new sensor made by them. As expected, it is not a low light camera.
  4. As I said...Panasonic is so predictable. Only added V-Log L, headphone jack and 1080p120. Same crop as the GX9 - stupid move, as 10bit modes, 4K60 and other better specs would be enough for segmentation between this and the GH5 / G9. Will be a good camera, as the G80 was; but if you don't need weather sealing and/or IBIS, the XT-30 is a much better camera.
  5. Guys, don't raise too much your expectations. The G85 was a GX85 in a "DSLR" body, better EVF, weather sealing, Dual IS 2, flip screen and mic input. The absence of the 6k Photo Mode, for me, tells that this camera is the same - a GX9 with the same improvements. Hence, the same 1,22x crop over the MFTs 2x crop, and the same video specs, same DFD AF. Price will probably US$ 899 - clashes with the XT-30, which is arguably a better video camera; probably Panasonic will bet that IBIS and weather sealing will be enough. Hope that I'm wrong, but after the LX200, I see Panasonic not spending a dime in reasearch for the new MFT cameras until the GH6.
  6. A case when the director is always a dick.
  7. Not often, for sure. But I like to shoot concerts, and some jams and 2 connected songs exceed this limit (have a LX100 with 15 min limit and sometimes had some troubles with it). And probably the limit is not because of heat - I guess that the XT-3 does not have heat problems and have the same chipset. 30 min would be a good limit - this I believe that could comes in a future firmware upgrade, when the XT-3 sales decline. But if Atomos could release a Ninja Star 4k, it would be a HELL of a combo - cheap and powerful.
  8. Funny is that Tony loves to shoot 4k60 in it's GH5, and dismiss it in the S1 cameras.
  9. For hobbyists like me, only the 10 min limit (and the lack of IBIS) is a serious problem. Could have the XT-100 lcd hinge, too. But looks like and amazing value. GX85-GX9, in the same price point, have 100Mbps 4K, more crop, much worse AF - only have IBIS as advantage.
  10. If this was not a Sony sensor, probably by now Panasonic would say explicitly, or "leaked" it in some way. Especially if made by them in Towerjazz. No word for the camera maker = usually is a Sony sensor.
  11. "It is not that fucking tinkerer that forced us to release Cinelike-D for the GX9?" About DFD: hope that Panasonic this time includes non-Panasonic lenses. If they don't support DFD for the Sigma lenses (looks like they will convert all their E-mount lenses for L-ḿount too), the system will be in serious trouble.
  12. Leaked specs suggests a very good camera, with somewhat hefty price tag. But very good chances to be a dud because Panasonic stubbornly sticks to DFD for AF (like they refused for years to implement IBIS).
  13. Research a lot about that, since I lived in somewhat humid cities. Best solution is active dry cabinets (Ruggard and Benro have some models in USA, but probably just Chinese models rebranded like everyone else), which have Peltier based electric dehumidifiers. Tried to seal a cabinet and put a like this one (https://www.amazon.com/Pro-Breeze-Electric-Dehumidifier-Portable/dp/B01DC5PPWM/ref=sr_1_5?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1548855820&sr=1-5&keywords=dehumidifier - but my unit was from another brand), which is Peltier based too, but the results were not good, and the power supply burned twice. My current solution, that works very well: - Cheap higrometers for monitoring, like: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-Digital-LCD-Indoor-Temperature-Humidity-Meter-Thermometer-Hygrometer-WOUS/182188821858?hash=item2a6b4ccd62:g:zzMAAOSwm6VbrsqX:rk:2:pf:1&frcectupt=true - Clear plastic rubber-sealed food storage containers - I'm using Daiso ones; - Orange tinted silica desiccant (looks like the blue tintwd ones contains cobalt, which could be dangerous for the health when heated to dry the desiccant again). Put the silica inside little netted bags, and put them inside the container with the equipment. The humidity will drop good and fast (sometimes even going to around 10% humidity), then you take the silica out (it could be reused, just dry it in an oven) and close the container again. Humidity raise very slowly afterwards - but the ideal range is around 40%, very low humidity could dry the grease in older lenses). Never had a single lens damaged by fungus. And important - never store a lens with fungus in the same container of the clean one, they can spread.
