  1. If you are not using Davinci Resolve, then P6K does not make sense at all. May be BM wants FCPX and PP editors to switch to Resolve with this 6K Raw only bait .
  2. Sorry these prices are in Canadian $. P4K $ 1749.00 + 13% tax = $1976.00 https://www.vistek.ca/store/423994/blackmagic-design-pocket-cinema-camera-4k P6K $ 3349.00 + 13% tax. = $3784.00 so the difference is $1808.00. I can buy a Metabones speed booster 0.64X EF to M43 for $700.00
  3. The crop factor will be 1.26 ( 1.9 X 0.64) vs 1.56. So if you have FF EF lenses, P4K with SB could be better choice. $1000.00 cheaper too. As for the image quality, P6K downsample from 6K to 4K for better image quality, but don't you think the speed booster when it concentrates the light/image comes through the lens on the m43 sensor will increase the final image quality closer to 6K downsampling 4K ?
  4. What is the difference between this and a BMPCC 4K with Metabones 0.64X speed booster?
  5. This camera is going to lead the FF hybrid market with the Raw out put to Atomos ninja V this summer . I use GH5 with Leica branded lens but would like to have more flexibility in colour grading. I was going to buy a BMPCC 4k but after hearing the Nikon raw out to Prores RAW, I am seriously considering to buy this camera. The colour science seems better than Lumix S1.
  6. Menu looks certainly illogical. I know many have invested in A mount lenses and i think this body is intended for them. I am sure all these sensor and other advancement will end up in A7R II replacement. Sony need to have better battery tech in Emount cameras, their battery life is pathetic just like their menu system.
  7. The clips shot with this camera look nice though. The Canon cinema lens also provides nice bokeh. i love the image texture something different than the Alexa or Red image we have become accustomed in big productions. Need to see more clips shots with this camera to judge its potential though. https://vimeo.com/canonpro
  8. i think it will be technically difficult task given the clearance between the sensor and the mount. If you go more narrower, the Speedbooster will protrude and hit the sensor. BMPCC 0.58X barely fits and you may also get soft corners and vignetting Yes it does, I shoot pictures and occasional 1080P video. Only issue i am having is with this setup is when a wide angle lens is used, the corners are slightly softer ( out of focus) if you focused in the middle of the frame. No issue with 35mm and up. 4K Crop on GH4 is actually 2.3 not 2.2. The plus side is 2 stops light gain, FF coverage and the FF Bokeh.
  9. Bravo Panasonic. i am already Using a 0.58X BMPCC F mount Speed booster with my GH4. Now it is With GH5, i will have 0.58X 2 = 1.16 FF crop factor which is almost like a FF image and the 10Bit 4.2.2 is a bonus! Ready for preorder
  10. Now this leaves Sony is the only camera maker Gives FF 4K video with a versatile lens mount and hopefully their next iterations would have better video quality. As a video shooter, i Switched to Panasonic from Canon when GH2 realesed and never regretted. My hope is that GH5 would have no crop factor in 4K mode.
  11. GH4 C4K, BMPCC Speedbooster, Nikon 105 2.5 Ai @ F4.
  12. 4K 120 fps in GH5 ? http://www.ibtimes.co.in/panasonic-imaging-head-says-gh4s-replacement-may-shoot-4k-120-fps-685337
  13. Have been the GH system owner since GH2, had GH3 and Using GH4 with BMPCC speedbooster , Nikon prime AIS lenses plus some Leica lumix lenses and now eargarly waiting for the GH5. Bought an A7sII out of hype and sold it after 3 months since it did not do anything better for my shooting needs.
  14. GH5 Would be an awesome camera to me if The sensor is bigger than M43 like the one JVC use. 10bit 4:2:2 internal processing and HDMI out with like the GH4. Better internal codec and colour science with more info for post work. Manual focus Zoom in option while recording. Better slow-motion options. Slightly bigger body than GH4 and Do not make it smaller than GH4. One or two extra stops of light sensitivity over GH4 Panasonic can also add dual base ISOs and IBIS if they feel like giving us more The only thing that is going to make the GH5 popular like GH4 is the sensor size. not 6K.
  15. Hopefully many more iterations to follow such as AF100 replacement with same colour science, Prores and EF mount. Have a GH4 with PCC Speed booster and an A7S II, Still prefer GH4 as main camera, wishing for a GH FF camera with same attributes so that i can get rid of A7S II.
  16. i do not think that Canon will not bring decent 4K video function in their DSLR lineup. They need to up sell their C XXX lineup to all the Canon faithful. That could be a reason they may not have C-Log in 1DX II plus that 500 Mbps MJpeg Codec is not gonna help either.
  17. Unlike Sony & Canon, Nikon do not have to protect their overpriced high end video camera systems and make an awesome affordable cinema camera that everyone want one . They already have the best photo Camera and it is time to make the best video camera.
  18. Thanks for the review part 1 Andrew! I wanted a FF 4K internal recording camera for very long time to complement my GH4, i thought that Sony A7S II was my answer but these findings make me bit worried as i have put money down to preorder one here in Canada. i hope they fix these issues with a firmware update asap. i feel now that i should wait till the 5D Mark IV release. i want a FF 4K Video and OK Photo Camera. If i buy A7R II, Using Speed booster with S35 mode for video, then if i have to take a FF still, i have to remove the speedbooster, not practical at all, also when shooting with Speedbooster + Wide angel lens combination with minimum aperture, you get so much chromatic aberration.
  19. What is the base ISO for Slog profile? hopefully not 3200. Have to make a choice between this and URSA Mini soon
  20. I am a very satisfied GH4 owner....... that does not mean i don't drool over A7s full frame glory. Would love to find out how they intercut in 4K mode. i guess i have to wait till the Shogun to hit the market. If the footage are indistinguishable, An A7s is going to be in my tool box as B camera no matter what my wife says ;) The Great thing is i can use the same lenses with speed boosters.
  21. Bummer, I was excited to use it on a cheap 2axis gimbal and also to fly it. Can use any wide angle adapter?, are they any good? Otherwise, it looks like a perfect B cam for GH4.
  22. By looking at the shots and the lens used, it is pretty clear some shots look like 24mm lens on a FF sensor. I think it is an active EF to M43 Speed booster which makes 0.5 X wider. So the Full frame rendering on the GH4 m43 sensor. Would love to see passive 0.5x Speed boosters for other mounts, hopefully for cheaper price since there are no electronics involved.
