    Interesting speculation if it is the GH4 sensor, got any reasoning behind that?? They have after all already used the GH4 sensor in their Z Cam E1 cameras. And I guess if they put in a beefier processor into the camera that would enable it to handle 10bit 4K internal

    Yeah, in all honestly I just presumed it would be the gh4 sensor as they've used it before, and the specs kinda match up!

    Does anyone know where skintones should sit on the BMD Film curve? As long as you know that, you can use false color and either hit them dead on or go up a stop or so?

    But it sounds like a 2 iso camera and that’s how I would treat it. 

    I'd go 1 stop over for Caucasian and closer to middle grey for darker skin!

    Depends on what your subject matter is, what the contrast ratio of the scene is and what the DR and profile of your camera is. 'Middle grey' was a method for exposing for film stock.

    Well we're talking about the pocket 4k, I have not seen any evidence to suggest a better way to expose? ETTR doesn't seem to be necessary in this camera.

    It only describes exposure using the 'middle grey' method which may not be the best approach with this or any digital camera.

    What's wrong with that? Surely the best method is using False Colour to set exposure with middle grey for reference? (Most of the time).

  5. yeah the sigma 50-100 is a good match to the 18-35. Both sharp (even wide open), can be adapted to most cameras; very versatile for just a two lens setup! They are very sharp, and I do prefer the look of samyangs a lot of the time... Only downsides for the 50-100 is weight and terrible focus breathing imo.

    E2's noise looks finer, it's a native 4K sensor while the Alexa Mini is upscaled from 3.2K, I'd say there's no drastic difference in the amount of noise. To get a definitive answer we have to shoot a chart and use IMATEST. E2 does show a bit more chromatic banding in the shadow area (look closely on the leather couch surface).

    One crucial piece of info is that E2 was shot using ISO160 (the lower native ISO), Alexa Mini was shot using EI800.

    Just seen your post on FB! They Should have matched the iso and gone through the range! The colours looks really good though, for sure.

    So why would Fujifilm develop a sensor they do not plan use? That makes zero sense. I have no inside information. My conclusion is simply drawn from the logical assumption that Fujifilm were working on something they had a plan to use. Anything other than this assumes Fujifilm worked on this project simply to benefit another company. That reasoning does not seem logical.

    We don't know what the deal is, like you said - we have little information about the sensor. The camcorder listed has to use an external box to process the footage? Do you really expect a small mirrorless camera to deal with such high power draw? It would also cost a hell of a lot more to produce/manufacture than their current x-trans sensors...

    I’ll say it again, it will be Fujifilm not Panasonic that introduces this sensor first in a hybrid body. It’s either that or Fujifilm just chose to throw away years of research and millions invested. That will not happen. This sensor is going to find its way into the XH2. Without it, all they can offer over the X-T3 is IBIS. This would present a major differentiation between the two lines.

    Sorry I have to disagree...I can't see any consumer product having this sensor for a good few years!
