  1. I think if the results aren't world-beating for this iteration, they will be very soon. The dangerous thing for the camera industry is that the biggest player has now set its sights on the enthusiast market and has marked its intention to go after it, and 100% apple will not lose this battle as it can crush the japanese companies very easily.
  2. F4 Dof is plenty for that lens and docu work. The light gathering is the important part as it means you can leave the lens on day into night and have that amazing range for run and gun.
  3. So the 24-105 will turn into an 2.8 with that range in FF. With the built in ten stop, this really will be great for docu work.
  4. I prefer s16 as don't have to futz around with focusing so much.
  5. What will this do to the secondhand S1 market?? I've already seen the S1R going for 1600 in brand new condition!
  6. Still a bit too big imo if you are looking at the size of these smaller RF cine cameras. They need to get it so it can fit on gimbals.
  7. Recalling previous posts where it was said that if a phone overheated while shooting basic 4k video it would be recalled. I would hope so too. But here we have sony's brand new Xperia 1 ii overheating after 5-7 minutes of 4k use in the so called "cinemapro" app and this guy is still recommending it to his users: Here is a reddit post where other users have encountered the same problem: https://www.reddit.com/r/SonyXperia/comments/hglqnc/fyi_xperia_1_ii_overheats_and_shuts_down_cinema/ I understand that no one should buy a sony smartphone, and very few people will (thankfully), but I am curious to see what sony have said about it (if anything) before the release of the phone, seeing as this feature was touted as a distinguishing feature of the phone. Of course, it won't stop youtubers from recommending it either (see above). It is only a curious case because sony are basically non-existent in the smartphone game, but intriguing nonetheless as a case study in marketing and the tremendous work Andrew has done in pushing back against the Canon narrative (which otherwise might have been accepted and the issues washed over like in the case of this phone). In hindsight it is easy to say that this overheating issue would have been brought to the fore, but you will recall the first video from DPReview on the r6 where it was basically said that it was a non-issue. Their tune only changed after Andrew pushed the issue.
  8. these arbitrary limitations do my head in. And they wonder why the industry is dying off. If the hardware can do it - just add it. If you want an entry-level camera cut costs on evf, weather resistant, etc and let consumers decide if they need these hardware options. Don't mess around with this kind of stuff.
  9. No big deal as all who get will use for vlogs and online content.
  10. Might wait and see how the new pixel 5 turns out. They bump the clarity up in their photos but the portrait modes look the best imo. Unfortunately, I don't think Huawei is a viable option these days. I can't have a phone that fights me when there are so many good options out there.
  11. Of course 422 is preferred. But so long as you can use clog2 with the internal codec there is no issue with the dynamic range. The benefit of the 8 bit is that it is so much easier on the computer.
  12. This is what happens if you just read off a specs sheet. The 8bit of the c200 is very, very good and will give you a great image.
  13. If their camera division is not successful they will - just like with their laptops. Their is an argument to be made that the old camera companies will stay in the game longer out of a sense of Japanese obligation but you can see even olympus relented. http://www.koreaninvestors.com/?p=9564 Meanwhile samsung is narrowing the gap to sony in cmos market share. And samsung continues expanding imaging as well: https://petapixel.com/2020/06/01/samsung-is-ramping-up-image-sensor-production-again/ Samsung had the best sensors in the nx1 but bailed because they saw the writing on the wall. I wouldn't bet against them here.
  14. I hope sigma don't get swallowed up. They are making cameras with soul and passion, and at least trying something new and innovative.
  15. That's funny cause Gerald approved of this video and has been conversing with him on twitter to do more tests lol. You sure make it very difficult for yourself on here.
  16. Could it be firmware (intentional cripple?)? As if the card is inside but it is recording externally surely there shouldn't be any difference to when the card is removed?
  17. You must have comprehension issues. Direct from the video descriptions, and also posted like 20 seconds in: "The Canon R5 does not seem to overheat, externally, if you don't have any cards in the camera. In this video I show (with as much proof as I can), how I'm able to record up to 4 hours in 4KHQ 30fps, 10-bit CLOG, with IBIS and DPAF all on, with no issues like the blackout or screen off issue myself and Gerald were having." I'm all for bashing the camera, but if you want to do it at least be right.
  18. his heating times have now been proven to be off. I wouldn't put too much faith in the dr results with these kinds of tests either as they are crude. and don't account for a lot of variables I think he was too kind to these cameras which should have been pilloried, but i understand that he does not want to break relationships. He likely got the cameras early cause of the glowing reviews of the c300 and c500.
  19. These configurations fall apart in mixed lighting etc. There is a reason why Sony intentionally don't give s cinetone and Venice color. They want you to pay more for privilege of decent looking color.
  20. So then when people talk about arri colors or red colors. That's all shill is it? There is nothing cinematic about those images? There is nothing cinematic about the old ccd raw cameras like the digital bolex? - that's shill too if I say that I prefer the bolex image to the sterile image of a sony? You won't get one mirrorless camera that even gets close to the look of something like an arri. Over-sharpened, bad skin tones, terrible under mixed lighting. If we take your statement to its logical conclusion you would have to agree that there is no difference between the image of a a7siii and a7iii. That I can agree with.
  21. strange gerald, being so thorough, missed something so simple as taking a card out! who would have known? Thats the problem when companies give you a camera for like 2 weeks and expect you to do a full review on all the specs. You need to own a camera to be able to figure out all the kinks.
  22. You do realise you are comparing a camera that hasn't come out yet to a camera that does not even exist lol. Absurd as your comment is, one thing we do know for sure is that the footage coming from the a7siii is average. That is not something many would say about the recent komodo footage and the canon cine line in general.
