  1. I understand. But, from the other side, chasing and waiting for more and more just incrementally-important better specs, we often make the worst of bad compromises (apart of falling to addictiveness of network knitted by logical task of market-industry to burn aquisition-lust in us) - that one with ourselves, with our laziness and conformism versus ability and self-sharpening in finding solution. Which are, as you know I'm sure better than me, the most important parts of creative process and indeed outstanding achievement.
  2. If I'm asked, you'd already have S1 not just to look at its tasty look, but to make tasty things with it And S1H also. Actually, keeping looseness of this thread in spirit of looseness of its announced hero, maybe it could be idea for mr Read, taking in account all goods that eoshd made for Panasonic: to form voting thread with goal to elect most skillful contributor based on here published work, and suggest that one as promoter for, say, namely Panasonic newcoming cameras. Creativity vote from user base, for its own ambassador of reputation and reliance that will test cameras for all of us. (Needless to say I'd vote for O.D. :) (Although I'd also like to read picturesque descriptions, remarks and comments from mr webrunner55.)
  3. Thanks, I'll no worry. And I believe and compassion with you in both.
  4. Oh, sorry, I didn't know you are with me, but this one surely will bring you back to me from elite
  5. Hey, you win and already destroyed my pretending mask behind was hidden (but not anymore) my hate on S1H, Panasonic, your grandfather, your country and you (and much more that you so generously don't like to make public). But, please, can we make some reconciliation, can you find some mercy dealing with people that have no such great insights, knowledge or reason to be proud on their family origin, success, on so clean and glorious national history or so? As you probably saw, I'm not the one here that feel uncovered in our inferiority and bad motivation under laser beams of your mind... so could you be so kind and forgive me and other our mistakes, and keep up with more gentle addressing?
  6. More precisely, I'm still waiting that Pocket being delivered to friend of my in UK (she wrote me that vendor informed her not before 10. јuly). Yes, unfortunately I had to sell GH5 for funding Pocket, especially while I'm occupied with other type of so-call creativity. But, depending of next type of my camera works involving, I can easy buy GH5 again... Having at the moment idea and attempt to motivate some combine younger crew for filming, while also having free access to some great scenery and locations - my estimation is that RAW possibility and crowdfunding paper with provided specs closer to cinema standard, at the moment is more important for such plan than keeping GH5. (Although there's no doubt that indie feature film equally could be made with GH5 as well as XT3.) More decided factor is sentimental connection with Voigtlanders Having trough times all kinds of set-lenses, I'm so unwilling to sell them But I have DoP friends from whom I always could borrow, say, Leica R's (that I sold to them once upon a time). Problem for me is that that guy - so lovable living inside of its own movie Knight-against-Gorgona-type-of-enemies with dozens heads - is so almost innocently funny, and that I so greatly appreciate this forum also as some sort of relaxation resort zone But I'll of course retreat, respecting others (bloody China's or antiprogressive or past technology's or so agents).
  7. Maybe I can help. From mr Skip77 logic, GH5 is system of the past, and as such, people who still love and use it simply hate progress, of whom mr Skip77 feel himself as protector, because he knows what is road map and future - as well as GH5 relict-pensioners, being metaphorical ghosts from past, don't know anything about path to the future, and so they represent certain iteration of dark force against which mr Skip77 always remonstrate bravely and resolutely. As such defined haters, GH5 users deserve special treatment against their contamination influence.
  8. GH5s is not geared for everyone... including reliable/credible information of century by Mathew Frazer (2:40) : it gets 2 stops more DR in comparison with GH5 approaching 14 stops of latitude, which is high end cinema camera territory...
  9. I'm always really glad to hear speculations totally opposite to mine, given from equally well-intentioned angle Actually, we may easy agree that S1H might end up as bargain of the year (but not for 4000)
  10. Even more to feel sad, GH5s has so great updating potential (external codec possibility, true 2k, probably with at least 24p RAW), and had so better starting advantage position over Pocket 4k or Zcam, at least half a year monopol in cine m43 market and possibility to redefine price accordingly... So, to sum up - weighting and rethinking price level could be sign of worry, devotion and truly best wishes for concerned camera... Actually with better friendliness attitude than blindly justify and applaud to every favorite camera manufacturer's decision (even suicidal one :)... And now jump to 4000, again without IBIS... I'm afraid those who in theory would buy it for 4000 as B camera, must have budget close to 20000 just for two cameras and base adds, and that's rather category for comfortable renting what-need-to-high-paid-job.
  11. Regarding question of A or B cameras, for my recent goal - struggling to organize team and budget for feature film - presence of RAW capability pop upped as the must one, of course because of the highest margin of production compensation possibility and flexibility in post. Depending of situation, I'm keeping on radar, as reachable, two offers of UMP4.6k mk1 nearby for around, I hope, 3.5k euros with some adds.
  12. Actually, reputation of that few Hong Kong dealers in UK market extremely depends of severe public monitoring, good service and keeping warranty - because of more suspicion they normally gathered. So, as far as my experience go, they are really great and responsive. As I wrote, GH5s showed 2-3 times in any level of production team in my area, and go back for the sale pretty soon to get most money back because of plan of investment in Pocket 4k. I never heard for anybody that use Sony consumer cameras in production, after initial hype about lowlight usability of Sony A7s. Even A7sII nobody use. I had opportunity to use Canon c100 II just once - my experience image wise and comfort is stunning. But at the moment I consider BM Micro the most darling camera I ever had or tried
  13. You can buy GH5s for 1500£ with 2 years warranty at panamoz https://panamoz.com/digital-cameras/panasonic/panasonic-lumix-dc-gh5s-mirrorless-micro-four-thirds-digital-camera-body-only.html or with 12 months warranty for 1399 at einfin - https://www.e-infin.com/uk/item/3545/panasonic_lumix_dc-gh5s_mirrorless_micro_four_thirds_digital_camera At the moment you can buy it on "grey market" via eglobalcentral for 1398£ (although eglobal central is legal and extremely reliable shop from my experience) https://www.eglobalcentraluk.com/panasonic-lumix-dmc-gh5s-camera-body-only-pal.html as well GH5 for 999£ with 12 months warranty at https://www.e-infin.com/uk/item/3282/panasonic_lumix_dc-gh5_mirrorless_digital_camera_(body_only) From my region and possibility to buy (asking friends mostly in UK, rarely in USA and sometimes in China for favor) grey market acquisition of Panasonic products is risk that I'm ready to take. Panasonic is so great in that regard, because of unbeatable solidness and quality control of their products. But recently I bought Pocket 4k with best found legal price of 1100£ in UK - even if exists grey market for Pocket4k or BM products in general (but it never existed ), I wouldn't dare to buy it there... Simply, in comparison with Panasonic, BM is too unreliable regarding quality control. ... So yes, GH5s dropped in price significantly pretty fast, but, as I wrote, too late, missing opportunity to indeed becomes a hit, exclusively because of wrong initial price estimation. Danger that, as I see it, is even more over the head of theme of this thread.
