    Rinad Amir reacted to kye in wide angle lens for my gx80   
    I agree.  It's the only lens still on my wishlist!!
    Not because it has great bokeh, but because it works in lower light situations (more of blue hour and into the night with city lights and cityscapes).  Generally if I'm shooting wide I'm doing it because I want a grand scene, not as a vlog or anything.  I do film myself, but more as B-roll and I've found an action camera is better for those shots as they're about me in the place rather than putting the focus on only me.  Plus it's easier to hold up an action camera than a GH5 and big MF lens (it's also way less embarrassing too!)
    This are the shots I'm interested in:

    I don't understand how specs can be disappointing when there isn't a major camera company doing what the S1H can do in this price range?
    It's fine if it's not for you, but to act like this isn't a major release that raises the bar is just crazy. 
    Every other company will have to match or beat the Panasonic.

    I suggest you carefully read my post again - many of your points are arguments against points I didn't make, but you obviously thought that I did.
    Also, I'm aware that GH5 files aren't 6K RAW, but the logic you're failing to recognise is that a 4K crop is to 6K the same that a 150% crop of 4K is to straight 4K.  The argument goes that if you're outputting 4K and are going to crop in by 150% then you need 6K, but what the logic fails to recognise is that you can scale 4K by the same amount and if you add a small amount of sharpening then it's practically indistinguishable from the straight 4K file.  Therefore the argument that 6K is required for reframing and keeping similar image quality doesn't really stack up.
    It's funny when discussing things like this - you and @thephoenix both went to the extreme and then criticised that.  That is called a 'straw-man' argument, and although neither of you did it explicitly, you both reacted like I had said things I didn't actually say.
    Let's examine the title of this thread and break it down: "6K RAW is over-rated. Here's why..."  
    6K RAW
    I'm not really talking about compressed 6K.  If you're delivering 4K it will likely be compressed.  If you're shooting compressed 4K then grading it and then re-compressing it to deliver codec then that's a lot of damage to the image.  If you're shooting 4K RAW then you're already miles ahead of compressed 4K.  6K RAW is miles ahead of that and yet apparently it's "argue on the internet" levels of critical, despite that 4K RAW is already miles above the compressed 4K files that the world is awash in. overrated
    This is a key point - I'm not saying it's useless, I'm saying that it's overrated.  To break this down further, I'm saying that there's a rating of some kind (in the direction of shiny-thing mania), and that that level of rating is above what rating it should have.  Not that it should be zero, just that it should be below what is has. Here's why
    This is where the arguments live, and I don't mean people fighting, I mean rational points designed to explore and explain thinking. In terms of context, yes, it depends on what you're shooting and what it's for, but if I was a betting man I'd bet a serious amount of money that you're not delivering anything in 6K and couldn't tell a 2.5K crop upscaled to 4K from a 4K source in a blind test.

    I’m a MFT fan but I can only see the GH6 being successful if it really pushes the envelope for what we expect in a hybrid mirrorless of its size, like the GH5 did for its time.
    In my opinion it has to have:
    A built in ND function of some kind, wether on sensor, or in place of mechanical shutter (with a global shutter to take its place).
    First to offer 4K 120p in a hybrid mirrorless. At least 6K or better a 8K open gate mode.
    RAW or a very beefy HEVC codec of some kind with 10bit in all shooting modes.
    Next generation IBIS + EIS that offers benefits over the already excellent G9 and GH5.
    At least 14 stops dynamic range with full VLog and some kind of extended HDR shooting mode.
    Vastly improved AF wether PDAF or next gen DFD (the S1 is way better than I thought).
    I think anything less and people will ignore it because of the maligned sensor size 😐

    And 5 minute time limit, with screen blackout during it. 

    Only YEARS after Panasonic did with their GH5. 

    Bet the Panasonic GH6 will crush it when it gets released next year. To reign dominant again like the GH5 has for the next couple of years.

    This isn't click-bait BS, let's actually talk about why 6K RAW cameras aren't really needed.
    I see two main reasons:
    Many cameras already shoot 6K downscaled to a 4K output (and the GH5 even has a lower-processed 5K anamorphic 4:3 mode) so the resolution benefits of 6K debayer resolution for a 4K delivery are already being enjoyed by many people For those who are claiming you need 6K to reframe for a 4K output, it is likely you don't know what reframing actually looks like There is a third reason - that resolution has absolutely nothing to do with how good your film is, but I'll just assume that people who are desperate to get more resolution are probably not yet ready to hear this and I'll move on and pretend it somehow matters.
    Much analysis has been done of the 6K -> 4K downsampling cameras, so I won't replicate those conversations, but instead let's look at the reframing argument.
    If you're shooting 6K to reframe and get a 100% 4K crop out, you can reframe into the image up to 150% .  ie, if you want to match the same re-framing with only a 4K source, you must scale up that 4K source to 150%, effectively using a 2.5k source.  It sounds terrible, and despite people repeatedly saying that ARRI cameras capture at 3.2k and upscale to 4K (a 125% upscale) people still dismiss upscaling out-of-hand without actually knowing what difference this scaling makes, and being too lazy to actually test it themselves.
    So I did it for you.... 
    I look forward to people arguing their point in the face of overwhelming evidence....  😆😆😆
    That is, unless you're delivering in 6K and also want to re-frame heavily in post, but seriously - who would be doing that?

    Yes, I obviously understand your disclaimer. This doesn't apply to everyone in any single circumstances : )
    I've just placed a pre-order with them. It will end less than EUR 2,200 without VAT.
    Unfortunately, EU bureaucrats are prepping to put us buying from US and send bucks to the other side of Atlantic. One of the reasons BREXIT popped up. I still hope we'll prevail : ) Europe is a concept, not a farm of a few parasites living from people. We are all the people, long life to EU : -)

    It's funny. Zillions of people are waiting and waiting for the A7S-III. Its like Charlie Brown in his field waiting for the Great Pumpkin!
    The A7S-III is HERE and it's right under everybody'nose!
    It has:
    Full frame sensor (Very likely Sony Exmor)
    6k full pixel readout to 4k scaling
    14+ stops of dynamic range
    10bit 4:2:2 4k with clean HDMI out
    4k 30p 4:2:2 full frame no time limit internal recording.
    4k 60p in "Hollywood" Cine super35 frame size.
    Full size HDMI with 4k raw on the way.
    Waveform scopes
    Huge battery
    Varicam color science....so delicious!!!
    Boom!.....that's 99% of what we wanted in the A7S-III....yet nobody is paying any attention to the S1 yet. (Only some people)  The S1 should be the industry talk of the town but too many people seem to be unaware of it still.
    Sony is going to target the S1, not the S1H. I dont know if they can match the S1 using their tiny A7 bodies but lets see how far they go. 
    S1H?....haha...Sony wont touch it! With 6k raw, Its going to be WAY over spec'd for Sony to even attempt to try. They dont have the bawls and XDCAM + Sony internal politics will never allow Alpha the chance.

    The G7 is crap compared to the G85. For 50, a 100 Dollars you are going to buy a camera with no IBIS and Worse color science all all the other things it brings and be happy. There are some silly people in this thread doing new people on here a disservice. And you aren't buying the G7 for no 250 Dollars anywhere unless a truck ran over it. Grow up.
