  1. I'm just hoping these 1 inch sensors eventually make their way into DJI's pocket and action cameras.
  2. Does anyone know if 1080 on the S5 (or S1) is downsampled? The 1080 clips that I've seen look way softer than the 4k when viewing at 1080 on Youtube. On the other hand, the GH5's 1080 looks pretty much identical to the 4k when viewing at 1080 on Youtube.
  3. No mention of 10bit recording on the side of the box.
  4. Hahaha, that or a laughing emoji would be good. This one would fit perfectly Canon: "Oh, so you want to record in a HQ video mode?" R5 User: "Yes please" Canon:
  5. I think they were hoping that chatter among the photography community would drown out the complaints coming from video focused users. I think they designed the camera with photography users in mind and added the 8k for that wow factor on the spec sheet. I can't see why else they would add such a feature and then hamper it to the point of it being completely unusable.
  6. I'm a far more cynical individual but I think Canon were trying to hedge their bet. I think what they were originally hoping to do was create a camera with amazing specs to wow customers, artificially cripple it, release it and then gauge consumer response. If sales figures and adoption are low, ease back on the crippling and see if they can gain more customers. Ideally, I think they were hoping that no one would care all that much about the crippled performance and that they wouldn't need to do anything. They wanted their cake and they wanted to eat it too. They wanted to show the class leadi
  7. I know this is probably crazy talk but I wouldn't be surprised if the R5 isn't overheating at all and Canon have just implemented a time based system to purposely make the HQ modes completely unusable. Armando Ferreira tested the camera and he was getting the overheating warning despite the camera and battery being cool to the touch (that part of his review can be seen here https://youtu.be/E0851VJfPmg?t=629). Canon have long been criticised for crippling the specs of their cameras so they've decided to take a different approach with the R5 and crippled the performance instead. That
  8. Hah! Thought so! Those pavers just shout Australian backyard to me. 40C? Mate, are you from Perth? It hit 42C here in Perth today. Hopefully it's not like this for the next 3-4 months.
  9. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I can almost feel the "Australian" heat in that second image. With my level of skill and the amount of shooting I actually do, a Canon IXUS is probably more than sufficient for my needs. However, buying new gear is like half the fun of shooting! That said, I've managed to make it through Black Friday without the purchase of a new camera. Thanks for help guys.
  10. Is there any reason to get the G9 over the GH5 when they're so similarly priced? The G9 is supposedly way better for photography but how much better is it? I know it's got the 80mp sensor shift, faster burst rate and bigger EVF, but outside of that is it really that much better than the GH5 for photography? If I were to get another camera it'd be for both stills and video. People seem to hate on the GH5 for photography but I don't see how it can be that much worse than the G9 considering they use the same sensor.
  11. Gahhh, you're talking way too much sense for my liking @kye. I think you've crushed any argument I have for purchasing a new camera, especially when you take into account that I only shoot for fun. Looking at that video (which is awesome by the way), it's crazy to see how far cameras have come in such a short amount of time and how spoiled we are with all the low cost options that are available today. Imagine what filmmakers would be thinking if you could go back in time 15 years and show them something like the G7. They would be blown away. Meanwhile, here I am, a casual hobbyist at best
  12. I have a monopod, which is great, but there are situations where I can't carry that around with me all the time. Sounds like I need to work on my shooting technique.
  13. Thanks for the sensible advice guys. This is probably what i needed to hear but not what i wanted to hear! The thought of a whole new system is so alluring! hahahaha I think i'll have to sit on this for a couple of days and reassess each option before making a rash decision.
  14. I have to say I was initially leaning towards the GH5 because of the IBIS, but as you've pointed out, I feel like I'd notice a greater jump in image quality with the X-T3. That plus the fact that it's also great for photography is really making my decision harder and harder. With regards to Panasonic's 10 bit H264 200mbps All-I recording format, do you know if it's compatible with V30 SD cards? 200mbps equates to 25 megabytes a second so V30 cards should theoretically be sufficient. I already have a stack of Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS-I cards and have no intentions of purchasing any UHS-II c
  15. Hey all, I've been looking to upgrade from the Panasonic G7 for a while now and have been eyeing the GH5, Fuji X-T3 and more recently the G9 (thanks to the firmware update) as potential replacements. With Black Friday deals in abundance at the moment, I feel more tempted than ever to take the plunge. That said, I thought I'd consult the vast EOSHD knowledge bank before making a final decision. One of my big questions is, which camera am I likely to see the biggest improvement from? Will I even see that great of an improvement image quality wise if I move to any of these cameras? Also, doe
