It's really sad. This camera could've been fantastic.

I think this is genuinely a HUGE step. Rarely, do we get such a big leap out of nowhere like this. I've never felt like any other camera was anything other than just good, or expected in 2019. Th

First test on my S1 with V-Log

Also encountered another big issue.
The infamous ghosting issue from the GH5 which was fixed with firmware 2.0 made its comeback.

Started debugging with Nick Driftwood.
Seems like only V-Log is affected.
Only V-Log is affected by the strange gamut clipping issue.

Wondering what is going on...

Seems like HLG is perfectly clean!

if i get all this right, you're waiting weeks for the vlog firmware to be shipped.

so how long will you wait to get the vlog fw update ? ? (and we got to hope that it will fix the issue)

 

Really hoping soon, but not expecting.

On the GH5 it took quite a while until the issue has been fixed. Let's see what happens.
Need the camera in late October for another big project in Ghana...

Thanks!

I also shot a talent [who wore a blue dress] in direct sunlight, now I'm wondering why didn't that happened to my footage. I'm still new to S1 so probably have to do some additional tests...

This just happened with my colorchecker in direct sunlight

There's no roll-off for blues at all, almost like they did forget about adding it...
