  1. Actually the message of this article is not true. One may have the impression, that based on those four scores all three cameras are more or less on the same level. But the scores only give a glimpse of the sensor's capabilities, because they are obtained at ISO 100 and that is where almost all camera sensors of the same size produce very similiar quality. As soon as you have a look at the entire test you will realize very quickly, that concerning dynamic range at higher ISO than 200, the two Nikon cams have an advantage of about 1 stop over the Samsung sensor. Keeping in mind that all thr
  2. For me the most attractive cameras are Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera and Pocket Cinema Camera as well as GH5. This is because the MFT mount system is very versatile. You have a huge number of native lenses to attach. Due to the crop factor the entire camera system can be configured pretty light weight, but if necessary it is also possible to adapt professional lenses very comfortable via metabone's speedboosters. Especially the BMMCC is very versatile when it comes to mounting options. Although it is not as small and a bit heavier than a Gopro, it is still usable as action cam on motorbi
  3. I think you got me a little bit wrong. I was talking about using RAW for HDR video. For most SDR projects you will never really need it, because it is not that difficult to gain 6 stops dynamic range even out of a very strongly compressed AVC file. But in case of HDR production the dynamic range easily exceeds your camera's and the more you compress the more dynamic range of your sensor you will lose. So for HDR video, RAW recording can make a lot of sense. For SDR video most of the time you only get the bigger data size and a little more detail which is not such a good deal, that's where I ag
  4. Well part of all of this is true and part of it isn't. In the beginning everyone should answer one simple question: What do I want to get? Do I want to use the footage just the way it comes out of the camera and put it on youtube? No grading or colorcorrection. Well why buying a GH5? Save the money and get a cheap DSLM or maybe even your smartphone will do the job. If my demand for quality is a little higher and I want to grade my video a little bit, but I don't need my camera for paid jobs maybe a a6500 is a good choice. For paid jobs a GH5 is probably a better choice as it is a little
  5. I would also suggest A to be video and B the RAW picture. Why? Because of the noise in the darker areas of both pictures. B has more uniform distributed noise just like I would expect it from a RAW picture. A has in my opinion more inconsistent noise due to compression of the video file and in some places I think I can even see compression artifacts.
  6. Thanks a lot for the review Andrew. It really helped me with my choice for my next cam. The only question I have, are you really sure the internal recording is 4:2:0 ? I asked Samsung Germany and they told me that recording is 8 bit 4:2:2 both internal and via hdmi. I don't mind because I use an external recorder anyway if I want to get good quality, but that would mean Samsung support is wrong (once again). Concerning h265 I guess we will see wide software support in 2015 when the bda announces the specifications for 4k bluray.
