    The new mark 2 Mix Pre's also have floating point I believe.  Any useful comparison between the two?

    You want feedback on them?  Place a linked output channel speaker within range of the pickup pattern, that should do the trick 😛.

    Matt Allard has given a pretty underwhelmed first impressions piece on Newshooter.  Yikes!

    I had a hands-on with the S1H at a camera store today and I have to say, it is a beast. I was really impressed with the OLED display on top -- has some cool features like displaying audio waveforms, stuff like that, and I also love how easy it is to pick framerates, compression and codec of choice, etc.  I thought it would seem substantially bigger than the S1 with the addition of the fan and extra screen hinge, but it felt very good in the hand. The new 24-70 2.8 is smaller and lighter than I thought it would be as well. The Panasonic employees were very friendly and knowledgeable and had a couple interesting tidbits to say -- non officially -- about the S1 possibly getting that pesky high framerate auto-exposure issue fixed in a future firmware update. I hope so! I tried to get some tidbits about raw outpout with Atomos, supposedly they're going to display fully-functioning raw out of the S1H at IBC, so that should be interesting. 

    All in all, it got me even more excited about this monster of a camera, if the long life of the GH5 is any indication, it's going to be a very worthwhile investment for the next 3 to 4 years at least.

    Person posts amazing looking film shot on sub-£1k camera.  Posts that follow mostly highlighting criticisms.  Nothing wrong with the observations btw, but do you think we might be a bit in danger of losing our 'wow' factor?

    4K pixel to pixel has a bit more noise than supersampled 4K from 6K. A bit softer as well with some moire/aliasing.
    S1H is even more soft but with reduced moire/aliasing due to the addition of an OLPF.

    4K pixel to pixel/S35 goes up to 60P and has a bit less rolling shutter (16ms vs 21ms).

    On S1 and S1H, 4K pixel to pixel readout is the same as S35 mode, it's a 1.5x crop.

    I quite like the idea of shooting the 24 - 70 with the option of a bit more reach on the long end using the crop modes.
    I reckon I would probably leave it on the S35 most of the time, using the FF readout for occasional bokehlicious shots.

    Very interested in the S1 and S1H as S35 camera. Coming from the Canon C100 and having a GH5 with a Speedbooster as well as several Sigma EFS (apsc) lenses this seems the most cost effective root into new gear. I can afford a new camera but not a bunch o new lenses!
    Really looking forward to hearing more about this.

    Leaving aside the field of view and lens vignetting differences, the pixel per pixel is simply that, you are recording the individual pixel of the video frame directly with no subsampling involved. I don't know the specs but the 4k FF  recording probably comes from a 6K/5,9K readout, so you get better quality/improved color. On the other side, since the pixel/pixel recording would have less processing involved, I assume will be a faster reading, so less rolling shutter. This is my assumption.

    What are the likely quality differences going to be like shooting 4K at FF, S35, and pixel/pixel on this sensor? 
    Noise? Moire? Sharpness? Anything else likely to be affected?

    The S1H has the potential to be a cult Indy favorite. The price will slowly creep down. Panasonic will release firmware to keep it fresh and exciting.
    It has the capability to do ProRes Raw for people that want it (with extra cost and build out).
    It seems to have a great 6K image with a strong codec to affordable and ubiquitous SD media.
    It has IBIS, which is valued more in low budget Indy stuff, that can be locked down when you want to reduce the floating sensor affect.
    I suspect it’s capable of more. Just as the GH5 was and the GH4 before it.

    The point at which you're operating two cameras yourself is the point at which you're bound to end up with a certain amount of crappy footage. 
    Wouldn't it be better to just pan to yourself occasionally, or have another family member wear a small body am or something?

    Mmmbeats reacted to leslie in Shooting through a narrow grill   
    gopros have a small lens however that picture gets wide very quickly  which makes it pretty easy to get a finger stuck in the picture somewhere. Dont ask how i know this .The lens would be less than an inch or 25 mm wide so it may fit between your grate. whether the lens protudes down through the grate enough not to block your fov is the question.  the gopro  fov is about 170 degrees however you can also change that fov from superview to wide and linear modes which are kind of like a crop.  the other thing i could suggest is rage cam and one other company can mod your gopro with alternative lenses  which would give you a narrower fov as well which may help in your situation.

    I think the probe lens will be about it unless you can find a VERY small camera.
     
    You could also just use as long and fast a lens as you can get and get as close as you can and MAYBE it might work like shooting through a cage or wire fence?

    As explained, our access is contingent on not doing any rigging in the actual room.  We're being granted quite a favour with the location and can't push any more.  We just need to make the setup work within the parameters we have.

    Our access to the location is conditional on not removing the grill or rigging a platform in the room itself, but we have great access from the room above looking down.
    I need a reasonably wide shot (essentially something like a 35mm - 50mm FF equivalent).  The room is around 14 feet high.  It's a geometric birds eye shot - straight down.
    None of that is negotiable unfortunately.
    Stylistically I need to end up with something adhering to 'realistic' - well controlled distortion, neutral colours, etc.
    I've been looking at the Laowa 24mm f/14 probe lens, but it looks incredibly soft from what I've seen so far, and f/14 might be a problem too.

    One option as you are using an mft camera are the Olympus body cap lenses as you should be able to get pretty flat, although the grip will limit just how flat.
    The 15mm would be the one for the FOV that you are after but I would definitely try and have a go with one to make sure you are OK with the performance.
    Another option would be the Osmo Pocket as you can get that butted up right to the grille and the big advantage is that you can remote monitor it with a phone so it makes it easier to set up. The FOV is wide but closer to what you are after than that of a GoPro.
    The other one would be a 1" compact like the Panasonic LX10/15 which you could mount slightly above and use the optical zoom to get through the grille. As with the Osmo, the advantage there is that you can use the phone app to monitor as well as control the lens. The LX10/15 can take the Cinelike D hack as well so you could match it better to the GH5 if you are using Cinelike D on that too.
