  1. Still don't have touch tracking in video, as it have for stills, correct? Video tracking is only for eye/face and AI modes?
  2. Would love to see it too, but I guess that in m43, Panasonic will only go with th GH line and a G100 sucessor - looks like they want to niche m43 in high end video / blogger video. Maybe a G9 sucessor. But I don't see a new GX, and for sure no more LX and FZ lines. In fact, I did not even understand the GH6. The "H" is for "hybrid", and the GH6 is much worse than GH5 for photos, is almost a video camera only. And probably the research for the S5 II PDAF started some time ago, why they did not put it on the GH6, even if it meant a new delay? Maybe the (still not named, no one look for the sensors in microscopes?) sensor manufacturer for the GH6 did not have the tech to do a PDAF one?
  3. HATE that white color on gimbals, attract a lot of attention.
  4. Are you shure that you're not setting Cinelike V instead of D? Cinelike V is very contrasty indeed.
  5. VERY worried about Fujifilm AF after the Firmware 3.0 for the X-H2s. Looked like a very concentrated effort, since it was available for just one model, and the one with the best processing capabilities (faster processor and faster sensor). And STILL don't have any AF Tracking for video except for the "subject" ones. Panasonic already surpassed Fujifilm in their 1st camera with PDAF. My X-S10 misses a lot of stills of my daughter, even when the eye is detected, even with the faster focusing lenses (the Nocticrons). And was not in very fast moving moments, and even in S-AF. Around 50-60% of missed focus. If Panasonic makes a GX10 with the S5II AF level, will be tempted to go back, even thinking that the format is kinda doomed because it is turning into a niche format - "lucky" me that I doubt that there will be a GX10...
  6. Looks like that your prayers were answered. 2 Kg payload, 795g weight. https://www.dji.com/rs-3-mini
  7. Now Fuji will have to up its AF game. It is starting to be kinda embarrassing... If Panasonic do a GX10 with a good EVF, PDAF and Ok video, I will be tempted to come back.
  8. Not exactly for video, but even after leaving m43 I still want a silver Pen F(most beautiful digtal cam ever made) and a LX100 MK II (have an MK I and only possibility to sell it is if I get a MK II). In fact, with all the scarcity of the X100V, I think that Panasonic is losing an opportunity without a new LX100.
  9. Maybe some more tests for AF in stills - looks like a little less precise than in video, but probably is already better than the DFD only in the cameras that you have. Rolling shutter could also be an issue, but you already know it since it looks like the same S5 sensor but with PDAF. Looks like that for your case, is a good way to go - but I would wait for more tests, if possible.
  10. And, ironically, the AF of my X-S10 is kinda of ennerving me now... (please Panasonic, make a rangefinder S5 II, even with some capped video specs - spoiler, will not happen, hehehehe)
  11. Indeed - even worse than previous Panasonics. Hope it could be better with a firmware update.
  12. Holy shit - looks like Panasonic have a winner, at least for the price. If only Panasonic had PDAF since the beginning of the L mount, market could be very different now. Looks like @MrSMW will be a happy camper. And, if I had the intention to move to FF, as an amateur, this could be my number one choice.
  13. Saw that mention for a smaller camera, and hope that it would be another GX. But my bets are on a G100 sucessor - that`s the way that I saw Panny going with m43 - high end video (GH line) and vlogger. The 9mm (amazing lens, one that I would buy in a heartbeat if I've stayed with the format) is target for the second crowd. The revamped 12-35 is for the first (albeit good for stills too). But before these two lenses, only the f/1.7 zooms. I need an EVF - I use my cameras both for stills and video. For the same reason, like rangefinder-like cameras, because they attract much less attention. And looks like they are disspearing - no GXs from Panasonic, the Pens are dead, only have the Fujifilm X-E4 (which was the camera I was expecting most but...no IBIS and much less controls than the X-E3, it was a replacement for the X-A line, for me a big deception) and the Sony A7C (interesting size and looks, but with a terrible EVF, bigger lenses, and I doubt that will be a A7C MK II). I'm for small size too. Gone to Fuji since was the almost only way to go (other APS-C mirrorless lines are a joke - the Canon R7 is very interesting, but almost no lenses and DSLR style). Fuji zooms are very good and comparable in size with the m43 zooms in size, weight and price - but a tad larger for my tastes (that's why I never had a Oly Pro zoom in the past). Hope that more lenses like the Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 appears - large aperture, smaller size, good plastics to keep the weight down. No interest in FF for the moment. Except the A7C, all bodies are "look at me I'm (pretending) to be a pro" DSLR style, and zooms are much bigger. They could get my attention if the make small zooms with f/4 or 5.6 with very good quality - which I doubt that would appear. Yeah, you can get small primes, but (specially for travel) I need zooms. WIll always love m43 - my Pen E-P1 and GH2 will never be sold, as the Panny 12-32 and the Oly 45mm f/1.8. Miss the 45-175 zoom (is exactly the kind of zoom that I'm talking about - small, light, good IQ).
  14. If ultimate changing speed is not an issue, was a very good choice. F38 works very well, very sturdy.
  15. Agreed. Very strange indeed, because the last time thet I've used an Oly for video was the E-M5 MK II in 1080p. The resolution was not good (compared to the 1080p from Panasonic at the time), but the colors were wonderful. Much better than in this video.
