  1. Also consider Autel EVO II series, they are rapidly catching up and are pushing frequent firmware updates.
  2. Another thing is that with the switch to the new DJI Fly app, there's no longer the option to adjust the sharpening (and contrast, saturation). So in video mode you're stuck with the over-sharpened edge halo.
  3. The HDR video mode on Mavic Air 2 uses the DOL-HDR feature on the newer Sony sensors, it's very similar to dual gain but the two readout are not completely simultaneous (a few miliseconds apart), and requires 2 ADC for high and low gain, which halves the max frame rate and doubles the rolling shutter.
  4. The only caveat I agree with is the fact that it's a pre-production camera. Remember it was a standardised lab test, Alexa was tested in ProRes using the same methodology, so it's completely fair to test C300 MK III with XF-AVC. With Alexa being the benchmark, there's something to compare to, so if want to take into account DR distribution in specific log curves, highlight roll-off etc., then the Alexa DR would change too, so maybe instead of 14 vs. 12.8, you could get 15 vs. 13.8. Again remember it's a standardised test, the DR numbers are all relative to the benchmark, we can't look at them on their own.
  5. Because it's Quad Bayer RAW, it can look better than native 12MP if you capture 48MP and downscale in post.
  6. It's the infamous F-log banding/macro-blocking, discussed before.
  7. Image quality wise, in daylight Air 2 will be very similar, if not slight better than the Pro. Of course it won't be as good in low light, and it doesn't have 10bit and D-log M.
  8. It's official: https://www.newsshooter.com/2020/04/28/dji-unveils-mavic-air-2/ It supports HEVC/H.265 codec but only at 8bit. Initial review suggests significant image quality improvement over the original Air, including low light.
  9. Well I guess it's called bleach for a reason... I'm sure you can fix it with your nice package of tools
  10. Yeah HDR photos, video and panorama (multi-exposure blending) 34min flight time, 68km/h max speed, 10km max signal range.
  11. Mavic Air 2 confirmed to have 4K 60P @ 120Mbps video, also 1080/240P and 8K timelapse video.
  12. https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT200321#proresraw Not yet in Apple's list but should be there by the time the camera ships.
  13. S1/S1H are based on IMX410, the A7 III sensor, also seen on Z6, MAVO LF and ZCAM F6, it's extremely popular. Yes the 60MP one is IMX455.
  14. With no surprise, the sensor is based on IMX309, the one used in Nikon D850 and Z7.
  15. Meant to type "can't" on the phone. you can't just add cyan to any footage make them look high end.
  16. It's actually called - cyan. There is indeed a general cyan tint in high end camera footage, but it's not the sole characteristic of their colour science, you can just add cyan to any footage make them look high end.
  17. Fujifilm just released F-log to Bleach Bypass LUT, it's only included in X-T4 folder but it can be used on all F-log capable Fujifilm cameras: https://dl.fujifilm-x.com/support/lut/F-Log_LUT_E_Ver.1.16.zip

    RED Komodo

    Just dropping this here with all the R5 buzz: RED Komodo sensor was co-designed with and manufactured by Canon, it's literally an APS-Cish crop of the full frame sensor on R5.
  19. R5 will have Canon's fastest on-chip ADC from 1DX III with readout speed at 174Kp/s @ 12bit, compared to Sony's current gen of 180Kp/s. With this data, the 45MP sensor can scan DCI 8K at 40fps so rolling shutter will be around 25ms.
  20. https://dronedj.com/2020/04/22/new-dji-mavic-air-2-price-and-photos-leak-online/ It uses the 1/2" Quad Bayer 48MP IMX586 sensor, the same one used on Autel EVO II 8K. It shoots 4K video and 48MP stills. Retail price $799 Full official release on the 27th.
  21. @Andrew Reid 1DX III owners/shooters, some might not know this but here's how you can bring back the legendary 1DC colour science:
  22. Tariffs ended yes, but the product categorisation still exists, changing digital stills camera to video camera requires assigning new serial numbers to every unit sold, it's not possible to do this.
  23. https://news.samsung.com/global/editorial-rivalling-the-human-eye-how-samsung-is-opening-up-the-possibilities-for-image-sensor-technology
  24. Would be nice to have full sensor height anamorphic mode, but the vast majority of anamorphic lenses are designed for S35 coverage. 15.7mm
  25. BRAW is not RAW, it's a compressed, partially debayered codec.
