  1. You left out a key piece of info - they were shot in 1080p60. Non-crop 1080p on all DSLR/mirrorless cameras is derived from pixel-binning, or line-skipping or a combination of both. The artifacts you are seeing is moire and aliasing as a result from pixel-binning and line-skipping, this is very common and completely normal, it's particularly severe on S1 due to the lack of an OLPF.
  2. There's 100Mbps with HEVC for 4K and 2.7K on the Hero 8.
  3. More of an incremental update, some interesting accessories though.
  4. There's a review here with some sample footage:
  5. Competition is already here: https://www.dpreview.com/news/6887022560/yuneec-announces-typhoon-h3-drone-co-engineered-with-leica
  6. There will be a separate announcement for the firmware updates in more detail.
  7. Fujifilm X Summit live streaming now: Lots of good news.
  8. It's been discussed a few times before. The HLG flag in ProRes file automatically triggers Premiere Pro CC to apply an HDR to SDR conversion.
  9. DJI has released a control cable for Ronin SC that allows the gimbal to trigger video record and autofocus on compatible Fujifilm cameras: https://store.dji.com/product/ronin-sc-rss-control-cable-for-fujifilm
  10. Good DR and highlight roll off, but the saturation roll off is the biggest giveaway of the video look (grass/leaves outside the window in sunlight remains intense green).
  11. New firmware announcement on 20th September during Fujifilm X Summit in Shibuya, Tokyo.
  12. https://www.fujifilm.com/news/n190912_01.html Notable features: New 24MP Bayer sensor, IMX271: https://www.sony-semicon.co.jp/products_en/IS/sensor2/img/products/IMX271AQR_Flyer.pdf 4K 30P supersampled from 6K. 3.5" 1280 x 720 1000nit fully articulated touch screen. Full sensor high speed phase-detection AF, faster and more precise than X-T3/X-T30! There will be firmware updates for X-T3/X-T30 to further refine their AF algorithm, among other features and fixes.
  13. There will be a major feature update to follow, be patient ?
  14. From this Irish based distributor website: https://www.ebdn-partners.eu/
  15. You are talking about encoding bitdepth, 8bit H.264, 10bit ProRes etc. Sensor ADC readout precision dictates the upper limit of the total DR the sensor can output. Do you know what ADC is? It's absolutely linear. 12bit ADC theoretically offers 12 stops maximum DR, and BMPC6K does 11.8 in lab test. 10bit ADC = max 10 stops, as demonstrated by the noisy shadows in ZCAM E2 4K 120p footage. Alexa uses dual 14bit ADCs, it's one of the reasons why it's capable of 14 stops of DR (then stored logarithmically in 10bit ProRes) Most stills cameras use 14bit ADC for stills and tha
  16. Ha, I've explained many times, current commercial CMOS sensors behave linearly, and linear 12bit = 12EV = 12 stops of DR. Yes you can store unlimited DR in 8bit, that's called logarithmic encoding.
  17. 15 stops DR? With current Sony sensors, 12bit ADC readout maxes out at 12 stops of DR. With the Dual Gain HDR, it's a Digital Overlap Drive with double rolling shutter and half the framerates. Not very practical for cinematic work. But Fujifilm has already kind of implemented this DOL drive in X-T3/30 and GFX100, with the shutter speed slower than frame rate feature.
  18. If you visit this link: https://www.sony.com/electronics/interchangeable-lens-cameras/ilce-7sm2 and change the last bit of the URL "ilce-7sm2" to "ilce-7sm3", it redirects to a specific page. But it you change it to anything else, including "ilce-7sm4", it just displays a generic 404 page. Suggesting that "ilce-7sm3" URL is already reserved.
  19. New firmware announcement around IBC as well ?
  20. Expect a relevant announcement at IBC later this month. Readout speed is believed to be ultra fast at < 12ms.
  21. 4K pixel to pixel has a bit more noise than supersampled 4K from 6K. A bit softer as well with some moire/aliasing. S1H is even more soft but with reduced moire/aliasing due to the addition of an OLPF.
