    Alt Shoo reacted to JR Lipartito in A closer look at the Canon EOS R5 lower quality 4K mode to avoid thermal cut-off   
    They could have made the R6 the video flagship with internal 5.5K raw (Like the 1DX mkIII) and marketed the R5 primarily as a stills camera that happens to be capable of short clips at 8K raw—more for frame grabs than making movies. If that were 8K’s purpose then the heat would be a non-issue and they could still keep the 8K badge on the box. Filmmakers would flock to the R6 in droves, and I’m sure a few would also pick up the R5 for the better stills and occasional 8K beauty shot. The R6 would have been a major threat to threat to the S1H and whatever the A7SIII works out to be. But Canon doesn’t think in that big picture kind of way. They just want to set the entry point for raw video at >$4,000, whether or not it actually works.

    I think what you wrote is very well put. I think that its imperative that any and all issues with these new cameras be it Canon, Sony or pick your camera should be brought to the table and discussed and verified. Because of your posts, you've brought it to the attention of a lot of potential users and reviewers. When the production cameras hit the market, you can damn well bet they will be testing overheating issues.
    People can piss and moan all they want that you are being unfair but you are not. I certainly would like to know before I plunk down a lot of money if the camera I am investing in is capable of working in all stated modes without compromise. If there are compromises, I can make an informed decision myself based on my personal needs. All I want is an unfettered review without bias.
    Thanks for bringing this issue to the forefront.

    I’m actually thrilled to be a backer for this game changing lens! I’ll be using it with the GYLS300 and maybe try it on the E1. So far the best footage I’ve seen rendered with this lens comes from the users with GH5s and BMPCC4Ks. Like this one in particular:

    @IronFilm I definitely agree with you on a wait and see approach with the Komodo, but I believe global shutters are just going to get better with the proper development behind it. With companies like RED pushing this technology, it’ll certainly invite other big manufacturers to enter the foray.

    Another one they need to make really is an EVF with in built recorder, something which is much more viable now with the tiny SSDs.
    Having it in an EVF format would add so much value to a lot of cameras, particularly fixed screen ones like the fp and Pocket4K/6K.
    In an ideal world, RED would license R3D directly to camera manufacturers to stop the hoop jumping and I'd presumed their link up with Canon over the KOMODO was going to do just that with the R5 but as far as I understand that isn't the case.

    I think your argument is based around the idea that lenses are an investment, but they're not, they're a consumable.
    I understand why you might think that, because it's a myth that seems to be on endless repeat in photography circles.
    To understand why I don't believe that lenses are an investment, have a look at the Camera-Wiki Lens Mounts page, or the Wikipedia Flange focal distance page, and see how many of the mounts are still in-use on a current model camera.  There are things like PL, and EF (although its days are numbered), but the vast vast majority of them are essentially dead.  Even if you take very good care of them (the best way by never using them!) they will still age and the rubber and lubricants will dry out, with plastics becoming brittle, and coatings changing over time (yellowing, for example).  A second hand market does exist for some of the exotic lenses of yester-year, but unless you're talking about the pinnacle of the range, then they're worth very little.
    MFT is a dead mount in the same way that EF is a dead mount - it is supported by current flagship cameras with specs that remain desirable, but is likely to decline in the future.
    I would hesitate to call PL mount a dead mount, but anything else probably has the writing on the wall, it's just a matter of time.
    I invested in MFT glass considering it a purchase that I would use for a period of time, get value out of, and then at some point it would be worth nothing to me and likely to other people as well.  Just like the shiny new camera bodies that everyone loves to salivate over.  I have some of the most desirable MFT lenses around, but the total cost was still in the same league as buying a single camera body.
    In terms of the GH5 having been left behind, do a count of how many current model cameras can match the 4K60, or the 400Mbps All-I 4K 10-bit internal, or the 5K 10-bit open gate h.265.  Odds are whatever it is you're using can't do that.  There are some cameras that can, but odds are that I can't get them into a museum or historical monument without security asking me if I'm a professional, which wouldn't matter because my arm would probably fall off having to carry it around all day.
    All technology goes down in value over time.  Relying on the resale value of any piece of equipment to justify its ROI is a recipe for losing your money.
    I don't understand why people think of equipment in terms of resale value - it's purpose is to be used, not traded.

    Yeah, its all about perception.
    The HC500 is £3100 so the caddy at £354 is more than 10% of the cost of the whole camera for what appears to be an M.2 to USB-C interface in a plastic case!
    But if they'd just made the camera £3400 and included the caddy then I don't think anyone would have batted an eyelid because its still great value for money.
    Separating it out like that just makes it seem like a colossal rip off.

    @BTM_Pix lol I thought the same thing too when I noticed the price of the caddy! My eyes literally bulged as i gasped. That caddy must hold the physical key to unlock pro Res lol. Certainly that’s an oversight JVC didn’t realize. Or did they?

    The downer about the M.2 caddy is that for some inexplicable reason it is $400.
    Comparative to the cost of the entire camera thats the sort of media housing price gouge that is worthy of a Jinnitech investigation !

    Thank you all! I’m truly grateful for your congratulations! It’s been a challenging two years balancing family life and grabbing footage, then trying to edit while your children run rampant around you. Also can’t forget my wife needs...... But it was worthwhile! Now I am kind of known in the industry and have been receiving requests from other “street legends” for me to tell their story. 
     
    Regarding JVC’s new cameras, they have awesome specs and I’m tempting to try it out, but I’m not really a fan of cameras with small sensors like that. However I truly enjoy the concept of the M.2 drive used to capture Pro Res! It’s definitely forward thinking and super cost affordable. I am truly hopeful that they are developing a new cinema camera. Maybe we can email them and remind them about that survey they had a few months back asking what we want in a cinema camera. We can tell them that we’re ready for it! lol

    Very Nice @Alt Shoo!
    I think it depends on the responses JVC got on their camera survey they sent out a while back.
    I suspect people wanted a larger sensor. 10-bit 4:2:2 internal ProRes recording and PDAF.
    JVC seems very interested in delivery exactly what people want. Problem is...sometimes what people want is not what they buy. Go figure.

    Their new HC-500U has a pretty great spec for a £3K camcorder including 10bit 4K 4:2:2 internal, timecode in/out and a very smart caddy that holds an M.2 SSD to give you all flavours of ProRes up to 4K60p.
    Its a shame its only a 1 inch sensor of course but it does augur well for if they do make an LS400 as JVC definitely do not possess a cripple hammer.

    @Anaconda_thank you! I filmed mostly in 4k internally, with some shots externally to a Video Assist 4k in pro res. Some shots were in 2k and 1080 only because I had only one card on me and wanted to maximize the content gathering. 
    As of now we are doing a screening tour along the eastern shore of the US. We are talking to major streaming services right now, but nothing is etched in stone. By January we will know our direction in that regard. 
     
    The screen grab with the red hat is pro res and the other is the internal dci 4k codec.
