  1. Thanks! It's very worth it, was pleasantly surprised how sharp and easy to focus it is. I might pick up another one for my b cam.
  2. cameras: Panasonic Lumix S1, Mavic Pro 2 lenses: konica Hexinion AR 40mm 1.8 + SLR Magic anamorphot 50 (green coating)
  3. I actually did not realize the S5 had a smaller battery.. my bad! The S5 wont last 3 hours, my S1 lasts 3 hours, but I imagine 2 hours on the s5 is still pretty good coming from sony.
  4. Very interesting point.. I never thought about this before and you actually make a great point! The S1 should totally be capable of RAW internally. But they obviously wont do that because the s1h cant hey, maybe its time for a magic lantern style hack?? Hmmmm?
  5. The lumix S5 on a Gimbal should give you what you want, but its autofocus is less than stellar so that's just something to keep in mind if you're using it as a gimbal cam. Any Lumix s series cam is great for getting work done. The incredible IBIS allows you to shoot mostly handheld. The battery life is crazy long, like 3+ hours per battery and they have full Varicam v-log and V-gamut. So a true cinematic image. But for gimbals, I feel like the s5 is probably the most convenient.
  6. Theres no definitive proof that the S series uses sony sensors, but lets say they do, because that's obviously very possible. I think they still look good and different than my sony cams not just because of how its processes, but the fact that theres no phase detect autofocus on the sensor. Looking at side by side comparisons of current sensors, the contrast detect autofocus on the lumix cams gives the footage a much more pleasing look. If you crop in on a sony, you get like halos on edges from the sensors auto focus system. This gives sony cams a subtle feeling of digital sh
  7. I'm pretty sure Panasonic is NOT using Sony sensors in their S1/S1r/S1h/S5 I just googled it to double check, I couldn't find anything about them having sony sensors. But I did find discussions about them having custom sensors that are not Sony..
  8. This is why I think the Lumix S Series cams stand out to me.. They're not using sony technology and have a pretty amazing image in vlog. Coming from sony, I totally get what you're saying.
  9. The S1 is a full frame camera, takes more to keep a full frame cool than a smaller mft sensor. Thus the limitation.
  10. I love my S1, its quickly become my favorite camera, cant wait for this update Crazy, I never expected it to become a 6k camera. But im not complaining
  11. I almost got a big metal, but decided just to get an anamorphot 50 1.33x instead. Vormaxlens adapters are really cool for what they are though, to cheaply get into anamorphic is truly the only option
  12. The s1h has All-I codecs. The s1 and s5 dont have all-I but their actual image is pretty damn comparible and cost like $1800 used. If auto focus isn't a concern, just get an S1 with the vlog upgrade, it's getting 6k 10bit and 4k 60 10bit internal and 6k raw external in a few months.
  13. So the S1 just became a 6k 10bit full frame camera?? I'll take it! Cant wait for this to release! Also 4k 60fps 10bit and raw 6k! Wow! Its essentially an entirely new league of camera now Good job Panasonic!
