  1. How is the s1h outdated?? Last I looked, movies were shot at 24fps, tv at 25 or 30 depending on region, and in most cases still delivered interlaced. If theater quality still means something, it’s still finished as 2k. If on Netflix, Amazon or similar, I’ll concede the bump to 4k is a “given” but it’s still 24p, 25 or 30. How any of that is outdating the s1h?
  2. Regarding the 180 degree rule... I honestly think it’s best used on 24, 25, 30 frames footage as it gives it the “illusion of movement/blur” that works in our collective memory (and at 30 the motion is already so fluid that it matters less). But on higher frame rates you are already messing with reality and time so if the blur is not there is a lot less objectionable. If you are not slowing down 50 or 60 frames, the motion is already hyper-real so it’s a different aesthetic in itself and the 180 rule can be thrown out the window.
  3. 10 bit has been a request for Sony mirrorless since the GH4 got it externally in 2014. In 2017 the GH5 got internal 10bit. In 2018 Canon make it external with the R, Nikon with the Z6 (External) and Fuji with the Xt3 (internal). Sony got the a7iii out in early 2018 before the wave of new 10 bit full frame/apsc models from competitors so it had “no pressure “ to do so at the time (discounting m43 which is condescending). But normally Sony is quite aggressive with features once one of its products have them, was it naive to expect cameras launched after the a7siii to have 10 bit? Is the s5 not f
  4. At some point I will, just not at launch. There are still gotchas that might pop up. But for my personal camera I want something that can handle anamorphic, so open gate or 4:3 shooting; c4k Is also something I would like to have or more megapixels for stills (both of these not deal breakers but prefer to have them than not). An apsc 4k crop is also a consideration. I like the fast readout of the siii and dynamic range seems great. Even if I don’t end up buying it I know people who will and will use it then to decide.
  5. I’ve been a Sony mirrorless user since the nex 5n days, I like the mount a lot and the blend of features/size/price/hybrid % stills-video in many of their products. When I can use the same lenses (or adapters) from the cheapest camera to the fs, fx and Venice cine lines it gives a reassuring knowledge of the results I’ll get on any given lens, lets not forget the first speed booster was made for e mount. But the wait for 10 bit in video has been perplexing for many years, even before the full frame a7 line. There has always been an excuse to not have it regardless of cost. 1. No clean h
  6. It’s time to reward innovation, let’s all hop on Sony train for the full frame hybrid experience! Now you can have 4k video and high megapixel stills in one body, with auto focus and image stabilization! 42 megapixels and small body for less than $1500.00 new... or even less used, as seen for the first time in 2015! Run to your online store to get the ilce alpha 7r iii!!
  7. It’s a good sensor... for photos that is, for video it’s still last gen in read speed (rolling shutter) and dynamic range. Not bad but the r6 sensor reads faster I believe, or it would have 4k60. And I don’t know why do a camera they already have a73 but in a different configuration. Only the AF has been ported from the a7s 3. No 10 bit, no faster read, no 4k60, just last generation but smaller. The S5 and the Fp have much better video. Auto focus is a big deal I suppose... but the a73 wasn’t bad in that area and could have get there on firmware. I can buy an a7s 2 for less (used) and be bette
  8. So, it looks to be the same sensor from a73... how is it that Sony is the biggest sensor maker in the industry but it doesn’t use innovation on their own cameras??
  9. Micro hdmi, no 10 bit (not even external). Maybe they think autofocus is the only thing people want in this price range?
  10. No way to mount meikes/veydras on the fp unfortunately. M43 also gives access to vazen anamorphics and some cine zooms that are quite small. Also the fp has micro hdmi which is the most beloved connection known to cine standards
  11. It does have appeal (for me at least). The evf in it and the s5 are a big point in its favor, but the fp is so versatile and small... The 10 bit ipb in the s5 is the perfect size/quality ratio, I’m hoping the a7c can match it. External when you want all i/raw is a great compromise and I don’t see Sony allowing ext raw on the 7c so that is a point for the fp and the panny
  12. The sigma fp is more appealing/intriguing and a straight competition. I really like small form factors and once Panasonic s5 and this are available and compared, they are going to fight to be my next personal camera.
  13. The CFExpress cards in the a7s 3 are even smaller, might they overheat as well? There are adapters for CFast 2.0 to ssd, maybe that’s a solution (obviously increases the size and bulk)
  14. The problem is you change the flange focal distance so markings on the lens are going to be off, may not seem like much of a problem, but your lenses won’t focus to infinity or go past it and with anamorphic it’s a bigger problem cause both spherical and cylindrical glass has to be precisely focused at the same distance. That’s why on focal reducers for example, the adapters are shorter than on regular adapters.
  15. So, the r5 is a [ For the professional image-maker who needs resolution, speed, and video capabilities, there is the Canon EOS R5. Setting a new standard for versatility, this full-frame mirrorless camera features a newly developed 45MP CMOS sensor, which offers 8K raw video recording, 12 fps continuous shooting with a mechanical shutter, and is the first EOS camera to feature 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization.]* (b&h description) product that can record 16 minutes chunks of 8k footage (hard power off/power on required each new chunk) without overheating... as long as you don’t care
