I'm not talking about rolling shutter but sensor readout and how the GH5 process that data or how poorly it does that. What's the deal with panning stutter on the GH5? Low light is also terrible on the GH5 so much so that Panasonic had to introduce the Gh5s. That says it all about the GH5.

Huh? What "panning stutter"? Probably operator error. 

And what is with everyone's need to shoot at a billion ISO? Try shooting with a RED or ARRI....   then you'll realize MFT can perform just fine in lowlight relatively speaking!

I didn't quite realize how small Prores RAW files can be. I think being able to do 12bit 4k on a full frame camera is really amazing. 

Just realized the Prores RAW also works with the old FS5, which are going for like $2000ish on ebay. Those can do up to 4k 120 in Prores RAW😮


The Sony FS700 is becoming dirt cheap, very tempting, it is the biggest factor stopping me buying another Sony PMW-F3! Because a FS700 is only a little more. 

But the biggest factor stopping me buying a FS700? (aside from my realization that I don't *need* one, I just "want" it)

That the FS5 has been becoming so cheap lately! If it just drops a little bit lower.... 

As ergonomically the FS5 is a big big leap forward over the FS700, and its internal codec is much better as well.

This time last year I couldn't resist anymore when I saw an fs700u pop up for very cheap.

I snagged it and have slowly been acquiring the kit pieces that it was missing as it came without accessories.

Need to send it into Sony to have is R upgraded and I'm keeping an eye on Shogun Infernos, especially now that the new shogun has come out as well.

Yeah that is sort of a problem with them. You need a recorder. The whole package is not as cheap as it looks when you add that in, not counting the bulk. But they can get the job done when you get it all together. But most of the Cine cameras can get pretty large overall when you add all you really need to make it happen, even a lowly a7s. 😲

yeah, hard not to be bulky when slapping a 600mm f/4 on the front.

the fs700 and recorder combo is big, but it's definitely manageable when you have proper camera support. No doubt the fs5 has the advantage there.

Still, for 4k slowmo, the fs700 is still pretty bad ass when recording externally. More than enough camera for what I'm doing.

 

 

Also, to go the other way, here's the fs700 with the Pentax 110 24mm 2.8 lens on it, just for shits and giggles

I could never understand trying to rig those small DSLR/Mirrorless into a shoulder rig -type configurations. With new products from Tilta, etc. now things can remain small, and yet have everything included. With different style handheld, that is :).

Hey the FS700 does stills so it's cool in my book.

Here's a still SOC no adjustments made in post. This is also 99% accurate organic color reproduction. My friend Tom skin tone, CS is 99% accurate to how it is in real life. 

We shot with the C200 at this same location and the Z6 matches the C200 in image quality. This was shot in portrait mode with center metering.

Do anyone think this camera isn't accurate and awesome? I personally want an accurate base image to work with.
