    wolf33d got a reaction from andrgl in Nikon z50 Apsc camera   
    It's a piece of crap, just like the A6600. Only good work in APSC video now is from Fuji. 
    Panasonic does a really good work in video on M43 (good on FF but some massive caveats like the AF at that price point are unacceptable) 
    Fuji very good work in APSC. 
    Canon is still a complete joke, Nikon is much better than it used to be but not quite there yet. And Sony is a joke in APSC, let's see with the A7S III if they are king again or if they flop totally.  
    Samsung in the past, Panasonic, and now Fuji show us the technology is here, even for small companies. 4K60p, 10 bit, good bitrates, all of this is easy and possible since months/years. The rest of them is just still in this game of protecting other products.

    Oh surely it will shoot 6k. But in 15fps, with autofocus and manual exposure disabled. And the IBIS will only work with 3 supported lenses and only when shooting 480p upside down.

    It is. And now it records 4K60p with extended HDR on all 4 cameras (including selfie). And the car shot in apple video was shot handheld which is insane. 
    Quite impressive for video this new phone.

    Well I was hoping for the infamous Organic sensor from Panasonic. I dont really care for 8k at all. I need more DR, built-in ND and perfect AF which oragnic sensor promised to provide. So I still have some hopes for it..

    wolf33d got a reaction from Mako Sports in No A7S3 for you my friend ​🤬​😬​​​​​​​🛑   
    A7SIII was ready. It was going to suck so they waited and improved. They reported they wanted to exceed customer expectations and that 4K60P was easy. This has been reported by Sony management. Now I think they got some issue with the body design. People mentioning XT3 forget it doesn’t have IBIS and smaller sensor. 
    There is no Full Frame 4K60P fan less mirrorless on the market. It means it’s not that easy. And they said multiple time for A7 line their priority is among others size and weight. The S1H is a huge brick. 
    So let’s see but if we see no A7S3 by year end it sucks hard. I am still waiting on a camera like the S1H but with good AF.

    wolf33d reacted to Mokara in NOPE! Canon did NOT remove 24p from the 90D and EOS M6 II to save H.264 licensing fees   
    There are two things, there will be a license to use the codec in the first place, then there are royalties due for producing content with the codec. That document refers to the latter, where the manufacturer in essence collects the royalty on behalf of the customer so they are not liable for it themselves.
    For example, I work in a high tech industry (pharmaceuticals, not imaging). Basically what we do is own a patent portfolio based on our own research. We then work with collaborators helping them develop products around that IP. We collect a license fee from them for the right to use that IP. That comes in the form of an upfront payment followed by milestone payments as the product proceeds through development. We provide our expertise to them during the development cycle and troubleshoot issues they might encounter along the way (they pay for this service separately, but it is part of the overall deal). Typically they would take out options to develop X number of products, any additional products would require renegotiation and likely a new fee structure.  Over an above that, when they actually start to sell these products we also collect a royalty (which is a small percentage of what they sell the product for). The royalties themselves change depending on how much of the product is sold. So, for the first amount there might be a partial clawback based on the earlier milestone payments. After that royalties return a set value until some higher amount is reached, after which it may drop again.
    This is fairly normal practice in industry that deals with IP where one entity license out the IP to another.

    It was dropped to save money. They did not just forget to put it in. No one else has a reasonable explanation outside conspiracy theories. I prefer a more conventional and rational explanation.
    The cap mentioned in that pdf is per product, not per company. It also refers to royalties that the end user normally would pay, it is not a license fee as such. That is something else. Who knows what the manufacturer has to pay to actually implement the codec, that is not covered by that pdf.

    wolf33d got a reaction from Emanuel in 2019, exciting video gear and 4K60 for all   
    With great surprises already in and more to come I would say this is a good year gear wise. 
    Nokishita (reliable rumor) confirmed the EOS90D and M6 are coming this month. According to Canon Rumors they will feature 4K60p and FHD 180p and DPAF, which sounds surprising (wait for that 3x crop...). If not in those at least one camera from canon should feature it soon.
    It seems confirmed that 2 new E-mount cameras will come on August 28th, including the A6500 replacement with finally 4K60 from Sony. 
    The A7SIII as well as a pro body (EOS R X ?) from Canon are due this year as well. 
    It will be the year of 4K60p which we will finally see on bodies with IBIS (unlike XT3) and good AF (unlike S1) so that’s great.
    This and the massive amount of proper video cameras released this year (E2, Pocket 6K, Red Komodo,...) and it seems that everybody will have a good shoe to their foot. 

    2020 is therefore the year I stop complaining about gear on EOSHD, after 3 years of asking 4K60 - good AF - IBIS in an APSC/FF affordable mirrorless camera. 
    Or not

    I somehow miss the truth coming from your posting when you're not around, buddy : ) but don't put your high expectations so high on the other contenders especially those already established even before World War II ; -)
    I wouldn't buy the P4K with this one today, but once bought and a very capable CinemaDNG camera, who has balls to be able to stand happy to sell it?

    wolf33d got a reaction from IronFilm in DJI new mirrorless camera   
    I am so tired of this absolute BS argument. First of all neither me or anybody at EOSHD has ever said we cant produce a great video with todays equipment. 
    But because we can do great video with an iPhone and a 5D Mark II means we shouldn’t expect/need more????
    Because a car from 30 years ago can perfectly take you from A to B means you do not want/need anything newer? 
    Stop with that argument that is counter innovation. The fact is that the camera market lacks a lot of innovation.
    We should have already a Full Frame camera with full modern touch screen interface, DPAF with AI, Raw video and 4K60P 10 bit no crop, IBIS, new sensor tech, in camera stills treatment and sharing on platforms without having the need to transfer anything. Why not video treatment as well? I have iMovie on my phone and can edit a full movie on it since years and share it in seconds in a device far smaller than any FF camera. Another proof the camera market is just far far behind. Compare the processor in a Sony, their BionzX Bulls*** versus Apple A12.  
    The ones who try to innovate the most like BlackMagic are not the big players and have lower resources, hard to blame them much. 
    Canikon are the most ridiculous, followed by Sony. Sony while innovating in some regards (or at least not practicing full crippling like Canon) forgets the basics like UI and ergonomics. They would invest 50 bucks a little boy in India he would probably do a better UI than they do today. 
    But all of this is thanks to people like you, who gets satisfied with that situation and even defend manufacturers. And people like me, who complain but still buy their shit and give them no reason to invest in innovation. Wait a minute, isn’t the camera market fully shrinking since years now, isn’t that a reason to question a bit?? Oh no, because the reason it shrinks is the smartphones...... sure.

    wolf33d got a reaction from Emanuel in DJI new mirrorless camera   
    This is the most exciting rumor from 2019. It seems as I was hoping that DJI will release a mirrorless camera. 
    I am tired from all these Japanese camera crap company that give us 2010 technology at high price over and over again. 
    DJI has been crazy innovating for years, they make the best drone with incredible cameras, the best gimbals, best action cam, .., When they enter the market with a new product it’s always the best.
    They have given us 4K60 and 10 bits in 1inch sensor for years in super tiny cameras when Sony is not capable of doing so in a much larger RX100 in 2019. Ridiculous.
    This camera could be a game changer with modern touch screen controls and ergonomics associated with clean aluminium body with a last gen Sony sensor and massive specs like RAW, 10 bits, 4K60P and so on. 

    I wish DJI success and to shame all that Japanese crap on the market. Camera market has been shitting on us for years with no innovation at premium prices. Only small companies like Black Magic and few others innovate. 
    Or could it be a rebadged X1D at a premium price lol? Hopefully not.
    Let’s see.

    FYI compared to the X1D there is a joystick, tilt screen and different speaker and button layout. Otherwise super similar. 
    Also MF would be surprising as FF is much more popular and cheaper.

    You are a bit too hard. If no 8K internal raw then no point buying it? So if it has 4K60P 10 bit FF no crop it is not worth buying? 
    Personally I could not care less about 8K. I need FF 4K60p + ibis + no crop + good AF. No camera offers that on the market at any price.

    This. I think it's hard to blame Sony for not having 4K60 on the RIV that is 100% still oriented and that gives amazing stills specs that does not exist on the market. 
    However they really suck with the A7S and A6500 replacement schedule. They have no excuse for no camera body with 4K60p. That sucks.

    You guys seem to have a problem understanding this is a 61mpx 10fps FF pro still camera. It's already cool to have that kind of video features on it which does not exist in any competitor. It's a world first in many areas. This camera has nothing to do on EOSHD for video. Panasonic is the world first mirrorless 4K60P FF camera and they had to have a massive body for heat at 24mpx so imagine 61mpx...? Clearly impossible. This will be for the A7SIII. 
    Where I am really disappointed is having only this announcement today.
