  1. I think composition, lighting, movement (or as you say, lack of) and sound* are the big factors. Camera aesthetics do play some part, especially dynamic range, highlight rolloff and colour.

    *Obviously sound doesn't affect the image, but it is a massive part of making something cinematic.

  2. I think they are trying to address the "blackmagic are always delayed" issue. The easiest start to this is a production camera that will ship much smaller numbers. Which is the case with the mini pro.

    Hopefully, once they streamline their production process, they can then look at a smaller product that will shift 10,000s... on time!

    I think it's a smart, long term move.

    "1080p 180fps gives you less resolution than actual 1080p". Really? Name a camera at this price range (or double the money if you want) that does better than this.

    So how is their point wrong? It just means all the cameras in this price range also have the same con.

    They have had their hands on the camera and have given an opinion, just like every other blogger out there. For those that are convinced the GH5 is great and worth the money (me!), then there is no need to worry. If you are on the fence, then it is another point of view to digest and make conclusions from.

    At least we can put to bed the idea that all these other sites just pander to the whims of the manufacturer.

  4. No shit.... But you were talking about the XC10, a fixed lens. Even if you do insist on bringing the G85 into a conversation about magic lantern cameras. There are not infinite combinations of lenses that mean you can ALWAYS match the focal length and F stop of one crop to another crop. Considering the vast array of lenses that could go onto the D77, a 5% crop would make very little difference.

    This becomes especially relevant when talking about lenses that could utilise the AF system of both cameras.

  5. Like i said... i seriously don't care if there is a small crop, as long as it works. It's an s35 sensor... a small crop is hardly life changing.

    A small crop on the xc10 is much more serious due to the small sensor... yet i still dont care... because it works!

    The g85 cant have magic lantern... so no point thinking about it in terms of my original post 

  6. The camera might be using some gyro data that simply is not possible if you do it in post. I'm not a tech head, so put simply... I really do not care. If I am getting a stable image, with amazing AF and good quality 1080p, like on other ML raw cams, I couldn't care less.

    ps the XC10 only has full IS in 1080p anyway.

    The "5 axis stabilisation" is a con... it is the same old lens IS plus a digital crop, which softens the image even more.

    The video samples look more than just a con to me.

    Smooth and jitter free. The softness would be negated by the raw of ML.

    DPAF is the big one though... be it the 77D or 80D.... not everyone can afford the 5Div
