  1. Sounds like Samsung are really trying (though this has been apparent since the camera was announced). I applaud the attitude.
  2. Uuuu, music? I do that! -ish... Here's one of my more cinematic-y tracks (albeit with it's a bit thematically specific what with the electronic elements in the background). Been trying to get my style to be more visual-friendly lately.
  3. Considering that the mirrorless scene has been all about The Battle of the Formats and The Lens Mount War for some years now, Canon better come out with something impressive if they want a serious bite. By now everyone's probably invested in one lens mount or another and that makes the target audience way more rigid from the get go.
  4. Too bad about the stabilization. Wonder what sorcery is inside the Olympus system that enables it to stabilize through a hurricane.
  5. Thanks a bunch for the replies! Very reassuring and helpful. @jase Splendid vids! Thanks for posting 'em! GX7 it is. Now the blasted wait begins. Ship Faster! I've had nothing to shoot with for Weeks! AAaaa!
  6. W...what's wrong with criticizing a manufacturer's shortcomings? Even if it's not the end of Canon, even if the 1DC is a great camera (for the price of a car). I... don't assume many would still pick a 5D Mark3 over a GH4 when the former looks "out of focus" in all image quality comparisons. The 5Ds became a standard in enthusiast videography because they were good at the time for a fairly affordable price. Now Canon is more or less dead (in terms of exciting new things) in that same segment (No...not talking about the 12.000$ segment). Why would you not state that from the top of your lungs? By now I doubt Canon listen to criticism, but some companies sometimes do. Sometimes a (mass) critical train of thought can sway a company towards improvement. Why would you bring strawman arguments to defend the company? Yes, bash the living shit out of them, bash the living shit out of everyone if there's ever a reason, because that's the only way you might see improvement. Ever. Canon's shortcomings in the lower price segment are factual. And I really don't think Canon make their money out of 1DCs. And the average enthusiast can have a fairly strong influence in what the "masses" adopt with somewhat of a delay if their go-to company isn't really doing anything. Do you think the mass consumer doesn't hear 4K at least three times a week? Of course he does. And of course it's working. It's just working slowly. A parallel was (jokingly?) drawn in this thread between Canon and Nokia. Good parallel. I don't think Canon are gonna become irrelevant anytime soon, but they are stagnating ferociously and I really can't see why anyone would chose to say "Yea, but..." in the face of that. Why be content? Nobody's ever gained anything from being content.
  7. Good Day! I'm new to the site and new to video work, but I've been lurking around the forums and Review Articles for a while now, trying to figure out what camera I should pick. While totally new to serious videography, I've been doing photography and very light video on the side for about 6 years, so I wouldn't say I'm blind to the more enthusiast thresholds of acceptable quality. With that in mind, I've narrowed it down to two models. Well... one. Two. Maybe just one. Possibly two. GX7. Or GH3. Currently I'm heavily leaning towards the GX7 as: - I assume focus peaking for someone that isn't trained in the art of manual focusing would be nothing short of magical(?). - I will not be needing high quality external audio (for the foreseeable future) (I'll probably mostly be doing artsy montages with music on top,heh...). But I've seen the GH3 recommended over the GX7 for video quite a few times because of: - Bitrate - Codec I have read Mr. Reid's (predominantly positive) thoughts on the GX7 and that strongly weighed into me currently leaning towards it. My question is: Has anyone who has tried both the GX7 and a more codec-competent (higher bitrate) solution ever been strongly frustrated with the former at any point? Like going "THAT WAS THE PERFECT SHOT! GOD HIMSELF PARTED THE SKIES AND UNLEASHED THE MOST HEAVENLY RAYS OF LIGHT THAT DUCK HAS EVER SEEN. YOU HAD - ONE JOB! " when you came home to realize that the water ripples in your perfect shot created the occasional blocky codec artifact? I guess my question can mostly be boiled down to "Bitrate Vs. Focus Peaking". I hope it isn't overly redundant. Any advice and personal input would be really really appreciated. Like... ...this much > [ ]
