  1. I was previously feeling a bit cynical about Panasonic, debating trading in my S1 for an S5 but not wanting to give any more money to the company, and I take it back. Looking forward to this next update, though I wonder if there's a real jump in quality from 4k to 5.9k. What's the real use value of that?
  2. I've gotten used to the focus peaking on the S1 but I find it not as good as the GH5. Color options seem more limited and it doesn't feel as precise.
  3. Definitely Black Magic Pocket Cinema 4k, among others. This a really cool device I wasn't aware of. It's more that entire drives are encrypted and function without a major speed loss, and these include slow 5200 rpm drives and portables.

  4. My entire workflow requires me to encrypt files the minute they are out of camera. I think if it happens at the storage device level, the loss of speed is usually quite trivial. There is no practical solution I can imagine that would require a password to be entered for every single photo or video instance - likely just when the camera is powered on. I'm talking about protecting the materials on the card, but no, I don't think (based on experience) destruction of materials is a guarantee. Unfortunately cloud based backups are not really an option when I'm working remotely.
  5. In the feature race, there's something that's always missing from the spec sheets of 'professional' cameras and camcorders. Professional journalists and filmmakers urgently need in-camera encryption to protect the materials we record and to be able to work ethically and safely. I'm not alone, as a freelance filmmaker who frequently documents police conduct (and associated protests), in recognizing the real risk to myself and my subjects if police seize my gear. In 2016, a group of 150 filmmakers and reporters wrote to Canon, Olympus, Sony, Fuji, and Olympus (but not Panasonic or Bla
