  1. Well the DGO method is using hardware and the other method is doing two different exposures at different shutter speeds and then blending them. I think ZCAM tried to do this and this is also what phones are doing with fast shutter speeds and fast readouts (looks bad in my opinion).

    Olympus OM-1

    OM-1 is launched. It's a homage of sorts to the film OM-1 from Olympus. It's a great M43 photography camera for landscapes, wildlife, adventure travel photography. Now launch "OM-1X" pivoted from a pro level MFT sports body (dead market) to pro level video body with new and improved 12-35, 35-100 F/2 43rd lenses revamped and redesigned for MFT. Focus on practical video focused utilities like: false color waveforms LOG great look and feel of image Hit the few key specs like oversampled 4K up to 120p, PDAF, 10-bit, no overheating or record limits. Push unique Olympus features like enhanced IBIS modes and live IBIS feedback assist tools for video.

    Olympus OM-1

    Not exactly the same but I see your point.
  4. All I can think about is imagining this camera with the OM-1 autofocus and how good it would be even at $2500. Love the tilt OR flip screen. Can they license that to Sony in exchange for PDAF please? 😂
  5. I believe the ARRI and Canon DGO method is reading two gain circuits at the same time. Kinda sounds like they are doing frame blending from a super fast readout.

    Olympus OM-1

    I agree, it is a bit pricey. There is savings in the lenses that should be taken into account. I think a OM-1 + 12-100 f/4 + 7-14mm f/2.8 would make a sweet, light kit for people adventuring or want a light setup.

    I believe they rated the EM1X as IPX1 which is still essentially a really low rating and still gives them an out on the warranty of use. IP53 on the other hand is a guarantee this thing could handle blowing rain from multiple angles and it won't get damaged and they stand behind that claim and not some vague "weather sealed" (unless you something more than a sprinkle of rain gets on it) kinda of BS.

    This guy gets it. DPReview...well...
  9. Nailed it. They can maybe get away with DfD in the GH6 but if their next FF S-series camera does not offer a major upgrade to AF reliability, consistency, and performance then I am of the opinion LUMIX will be on its way out. We now have cheaper cinema level cameras available with less need to buy something like the S1H for cheaper and put up with its limitations. Other video people, driven mostly my YT'ers, will buy something with amazing AF like a Sony or Canon, and maybe even Fuji. It is literally the only feature that matters for them. They have all the rest. But it will remain a mystery why they don't put PDAF in their cameras. At this point it would make a good investigative documentary.

    Finally, a camera manufacture willing to slap a IP rating on their "weather sealed" camera and stand behind it! IP53 is a pretty good guarantee of protection. The rating says it is essential highly resistent to dust ingress (but not dust tight; no ingress) and can handle spraying water—think lightly blowing rain from all angles or a low pressure garden sprinkler. Definitely not a "wow" camera but decently solid. Like @John Matthews said I will probably pick up this camera and perhaps the 12-100 f/4 and a f1.2 prime for a "ultralight" camera kit now that it has 10-bit internal up to 4K60p. I'm more interested in the fast and light stills performance. The HiRes handheld without a tripod, handheld or monopod astro abilities, etc... GH6 still no PDAF...more DfD "fast" AI technology. I guess I will hold my beer awhile longer to see how that turns out.
  11. Hmm, compared to other stacked BSI sensors from Sony that rumored 4/3 sensor isn’t as spec heavy.
  12. True I guess. It also depends on what the Sony MFT sensor can do. I just expected 4K120p or more since it’s 20MP stacked sensor. Well, here is hoping we see some solid DR and performance out of the latest MFT sensors going into these cameras. I think they are still at 14-bit.
  13. Yeah, I agree. However, it appears they didn’t really change the architecture at all from the EM1.3.
  14. Depends on the contract of the license but it will either be installed payments per year or quarter or it could be a % of sales of each unit sold.
  15. Sony use to own stock in Olympus but sold it back I believe several years ago. Will be interesting to see if OM System will fizzle or if they will be acquired. You would think Panasonic would be interested but their camera division is probably not high on the totem pole to the rest of the company interests since the market has constricted. I'm still very interested in the latest OM-1 camera. I have a feeling it was already a blueprinted product at Olympus and very little changes were made since the spin off company from Olympus.
  16. yeah, that is way too similar to Komodo to be a coincidence. Something more to the story here on that patent filing...
  17. Ok, so why didn't they come up with a better, more memorable name than some bargain basement OM SYSTEM? They could have bought the rights to the Olympus "Stylus" or "Zuiko" trademarks.
  18. That’s good because they had so many other good things to come up with other than f’ing “OM SYSTEMS”
  19. I'm considering Olympus MFT setup now that Panasonic has announced the GH6 will have DfD. I'm looking for a lightweight crop sensor landscape photo / video hybrid for an ultralight pack. The OM-1 will have DCI 4K, 10-bit, good color, PDAF, astro tracking, pixelshift, and world class IBIS. I'm not convinced OM systems is in it for the long haul, but if the OM-1 is anything like previous Olympus cameras it will provide value for years to come. Panasonic is bleeding out because they don't have good AF. I don't see it stopping.
  20. Canon is probably going to drop RF T1.5 Cine lenses this spring.

    But they have been working on giving you both. Nikon just put ProRes in a mirrorless camera. BM has offered it for awhile. C70, A7SIII, BMPCC6K and a few others are clocking in at 13-14 stops of DR. Anything higher is from an extremely expensive ARRI camera. Color depths has been increasing. 8-bit to 10-bit internal...now some are offering 12-bit internal. We also have cameras that shoot from 2K-8K resolutions at a touch of a few buttons or menu items. We have entry level RED cameras at $6K that offer 13 stops, REDCODE RAW and "autofocus" (well better than Panasonic anyway!) in a mirrorless sized box camera with a global shutter! You can throw on your favorite vintage lens, shoot at what ever resolution makes sense for you and get amazing results. I don't get all the circular complaining.

    Oh shit! Did they digitally crop for an artistic intent? Amateurs!

    In the last 8 years Streaming resolution has gone up. I remember when YouTube maxed at 720p and they called it HD! Streaming bitrates have gone up. Better codecs are being used. TV manufactures and streaming services are working on a true "cinema" display standard for viewing. Storage $/GB have continued to decline. Camera media is getting larger and more inexpensive (You can get a 512GB CFExpress card from Angelbird that can handle 8K for $179). Cameras are universally adding 10-bit color in camera. Some cameras are offering 12-bit internal RAW at fairly reasonable bitrates. Camera resolutions are going up Color science is improving in multiple brands Professional grading and editing software is more available and cheaper than ever You can learn how to professional grade your footage FREE to maximize the 10-bit / 12-bit color coming out of your camera. And that is perfectly valid way to shoot. And so you buy the camera that works best for you and gives you the best SOOC result. As things evolve you switch up your gear to get better results and an easier workflow. This is how technology works. Now you can get cameras that shoot seasoned SOOC colors that look decent in 10-bit. Many of your clients will probably own or WILL own a 10-bit HDR TV / monitor where the footage will shine and look good. Then take your 5K/6K/8K oversampling camera and put it in a 2K/4K mode with as high as a bit depth as you can get. Color your footage however you want. Hell, if you camera shoots 12-bit+ RAW. Then shoot that and then conform it to ARRI LOG-C and grade it just like an ARRI camera minus a few stops of dynamic range. You can do that now! So until ARRI releases a mirrorless camera with IBIS you won't be happy. I would say the other brands are coming up faster to reaching that point than you think. You just might have to accept that your 2-4K 10-bit plus footage will be oversampled from 8K or more.
  24. I meant I don't know why he blew his top like that. Why not write a reasoned post about why and if he has the goods that are so bad outline them and then exit the scene. I can understand the anger and all but just trashing people on twitter looks bad and doesn't help him communicate his case to others. People instantly got defensive. But perhaps it all doesn't matter what he says the ugly machine will keep rolling.
