  1. Even more flabbergasted - I mistakenly looked at the price of the S5 to compare. This new one is considerably *more* expensive than the GH5S.
  2. This could have been interesting but: 1. Too expensive. It's around the same price as the GH5S, yet has no screen, no evf, no battery and - presumably - no strap or charger. So WTF, Panasonic - should be cheaper, if anything? 2. The reason we always get for the lack of internal NDs in hybrid cameras is a lack of space. No NDs in this - why?
  3. I picked up a FS5 (with the raw upgrade, which wasn't even mentioned in the ad) for £1200 a few weeks ago - that's cheaper than I got the FS700 for back in 2016.
  4. I like the new theme, although the dark version is a little too dark for my eyes! One thing I've noticed, both with the old theme and the new one, is that on my device (iPhone XS in portrait) the posts listing is only covering around 3/4 of the viewport width horizontally. It'll be an error in the responsive media queries in the CSS - don't know if that's something that's worth having a look at - it's not a showstopper, but is slightly off.
  5. Loving this on my FS5 mki (I haven't actually shot anything in 4K yet as I like the 10bit 4:2:2 FHD so much) - mapped to the zoom rocker you can actually get a smooth zoom on the rare occasions you might want to use one.
  6. I think Canon and Fuji make their own sensors don’t they? And the DPAF on Canon cameras is all their own work (and still much better than Sony’s).
  7. I try to do this at least once a week. The feeling of relaxation that comes over me as I wander around shooting a little bit of this and a little bit of that is a fantastic antidote to the week's stress.
  8. He wants to experiment with underwater stuff, so it does need to be an action cam, really. Drums! That one’s coming down the road at us as his 5yr old brother is mad about them.
  9. My middle child, 11yrs, has always like taking photographs - and he has a very good eye! Recently he's watched some Jesse Driftwood videos about transitions and other editing stuff, plus he's gotten into TikTok and the outcome is that he's downloaded the Resolve free version and is asking for an action camera for Christmas. I'm naturally inclined to encourage this new direction (although you would have thought I'd have learnt my lesson after the Great Electric Guitar Debacle). Any road up. I'm sufficiently knowledgeable about the action cam scene to know that GoPro these days is more mark
  10. It’s probably, as @kye alludes, down to the pandemic. Most potential GH6 customers are on their uppers with, currently, no realistic prospect of getting up off them. A release now, even if it’s the second coming of M43, is going to see mediocre sales. Then, once the small-biz and well-heeled enthusiast market is in the buying mood once again who knows what advances the competition has ready to drop?
  11. "The mid- to low-end cameras pole-vaulted, from 1/3" to FF35. This is because at 1/3" they had no bokeh, and FF35 gave them bokeh. But I wonder how well they would have been satisfied with a bunch of S16 cameras, seriously done. The jump to FF35 is an artifact of history: "Oh, we're already making FF35 for still photographers, so we'll just add video to them." Someone doing a clean-sheet design, what would they have come up with as the ideal sensor size?" From user combatentropy over at DVX, where they are having a similar discussion. http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?368299-P
  12. I don't do this stuff for a living, but artistically I'm chasing a look reminiscent of film, so since the vast majority of movies going back decades have been shot in S35 of one sort or another I find I get the look I'm seeking by shooting video in an analogous format.
  13. Gotta say, @Andrew Reid, that is some of the best video of yours that I've seen you post since I've been following this site - it's lovely. That camera/lens combination obviously suits you very well.
  14. Hey Anamorphic experts! I'm sure there's a logical answer to this, but it's baking my brain. If I was to use a Sirui Anamorphic 50mm 1.8 on my FS5, would the full anamorphic effect be preserved if I use Clear Image zoom to give myself additional focal lengths?
