    3 or 4 years ago this would've been a huge release. Today though it's hard to justify spending $900 on this when there's so many options out there, even from Canon themselves. 
    I'm sure it'll be a good, maybe even great, camera, but it's 2020... These specs are real late to the party.

    Wrong. The poor Canon spent all it's budget in the 24p license, no money left to license 30p.

    Not if the Full Frame is significantly bigger! 
    M43 is about smaller bodies and lenses, not just cost. I can carry 3 bodies and 3 zoom lenses in a backpack and it will be nearly equal in weight to one full frame camera and zoom lens. 
    I mean the GH5 with 35-100 lens combined weighs less than the popular 70-200 f/2.8 full frame lenses alone!

    I'm happy with the lowlight performance of MFT with regards to the GH5S. Gives us a GH6 with a dual gain sensor thats performs a bit better and it will be good as a A7III or A7SII....and no one complained about their performance.
    I've shot candle lit scenes in a cabin in Norway with a f2.8 12-35 at ISO 6400 to 8000 on the GH5S. A few shots at 8000 needed some noise reduction that took about 5 mins of my time to process.
    I've shot video of Elk with a 50-200mm f/2.8-4 at dusk on the GH5S at 200mm f/4 ISO 3200-6400 with a monopod. Video came out great. I had other photographers and video people there too lugging around 400mm FF and crop lenses...they absolutely HATED to re-position. I wonder why?
    So I no longer fret about lowlight ability with the GH5S. IF the GH6 can take what they did with the GH5S and improve upon it, I am more than happy. Especially if I get glorious IBIS and full V-Log.
    I have never yet needed to shoot something wider than 18mm and faster than f1.7. When I do I guess I'll buy one of the new Laowa f0.95 ZeroD primes that are coming out this year.
    I prefer to have my humans subject's eyes and ears in-focus in my talking head shots. If you shoot f1.2 FF like Tony...well god help you.

    I've never felt limited by M43 when it comes to most of those things, outside of low light. M43 showed though that it can have respectable low light with the GH5S and Pocket 4K.
    I'm happy with M43.

    I'm not trying to pick a fight here.
    But, I don't know... I felt the same, but after trying out mft...
    I got to call it as a I see it... Most of the above is mostly B.S. from online pundits.
    1) <-- Very subjective and its content based not related to sensor size.
    2) <-- Well, watch this video and tell me that 3 feet is really a big deal (may be switch out the lens for the 16-35mm):
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFH6bmesqVE
    3) <-- Plenty of bokeh on mft here (by the way thats my video with the stupid Yi Camera):
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pv0QRR3Nbh8
    4) <-- This I agree with - but manipulating light with reflectors, external soft boxes, LEDS, flags, etc. even time of day (the golden hours) and working within their limitations is half the fun.
    5) <-- This matters if you are not using any editing tools at all, but I've taken some amazing pictures with the 7D. And, they looked great straight out of camera. Funny story, I was working with a friend for a wedding, I told him... man its just a 7D + a couple of L lenses, he said that it will be fine. He was shooting with a 5D mark 2, and the groom wanted all my pictures instead. After reviewing my photos, my friend was blown away by them too, mostly because I captured a lot of those "intimate" moments.

    The obsession with the “large sensor look”. Which, ok granted, you can get shallower depth of field with wider lenses with a larger sensor. But the quest to blur the background out is definitely missing the point of “cinema” and while we are not all chasing to do “cinema” the extreme shallow depth of field is becoming almost cliche and meme worthy.
    Not to mention there are other concerns at play like overall weight, packability, friction-to-use.

    absolutely. running a youtube channel isn’t about the channel itself. it’s about the other streams of income you make to pay for everything else. again... brand deals are where it’s at. i only make around $900 a month off ad revenue for example. the rest of my money is from all the other things like affiliate and brand deals

    Good news for us, we can now sell everything and shoot on an iPhone knowing that somebody in 100 years will neural-network the footage to make it look like its shot on an Alexa.

    A lot of modern get rich quick schemes centre on content creation and YouTube.
    Snake oil, the lot of it.
    There is only one general rule and that is the relevance and quality of the content.
    You are right there are a ton of variables too. You can put out absolute shit and see it rocket in popularity - look at all the clickbait out there - but these channels are fads, 15 minutes of fame, and don't sustain a career for 10+ years.

    I personally know people with over 2 million subs and they're definitely not rich or anywhere close to being rich. 
    There are a lot more variables at play. The type of content you make, who watches it, etc. plays a huge role. My friends that have hundreds of thousands of subscribers but deal with pro wrestling content don't get much at all since YouTube allowed advertisers more control over what videos they advertise on and most passed on advertising on wrestling related content.

    The Panasonic G9 is a really underrated stills camera. It gets overlooked because it's M43 but it's awesome. The IBIS is a dream! 
    Perhaps look into the a6600 as well, if you're not willing to go the M43 route? It's a little over your budget but not by much.

    Personally I love using m43 cams with native lenses for interviews. You can easily light for f/2.8, but with the benefit of f/5.6 DoF.  It means I can use smaller, less powerful lights which helps keep the setup small.

    The best sub $1K hybrid camera for filming is:

    a) if you can live without IBIS, the Fujifilm X-T3 secondhand
    b) if you love IBIS, the Panasonic G9 (it's been on sale for sub $1K brand new) or a secondhand Panasonic GH5
