Cool! I don't know of any cameras that have the same amount of noise at 5000 ISO as 800 ISO. I wonder how it compares to the C300/500 and FS7/F5 when both set to 800ISO and 5000ISO. These cameras are also very sensitive just by using normal gain, so this comparison would tell us if there's a point of this sensor technology.

This camera is way out of my league but it would be great if this camera delivers and becomes popular in high end market.

 

I think the best way for companies is to implement newest technology into most expensive high end products and make a profit, and is then cheaper some time later for them to implement most of that technology into mid range and lower end products, similar to how automobile industry works. I think this is the reason why Sony FS7 is not so expensive for what it is.

 

So far Panasonic show that they care about our enthusiast wallets  :) , so I hope this will be the case with their new mid and lower end video cameras and that is the only reason why I'm interested in VariCam.

Agreed. It's hard to say from the video because it's a video of a video... but iso 4000 (with gain applied from base iso) looks bad on this camera. On a A7S for example iso values like that are perfectly usable.

 

Interesting technique though.

Yes it looks pretty horrible at 4000 ISO, like 20.000 ISO or so on a C300 or an F5. But at 5000 ISO it looks great, like these cameras, maybe even cleaner, there's very little noise there apparently. But also these cameras allow for using clean in between ISOs not just two clean ones and a punch of horrible ones.

I think it depends on how 800 ISO is clean vs the 800 on the C300/F5, if it's just as clean at this setting as those cameras, and that 5000 ISO is just as clean as 800 ISO, this will have a huge 2.5 stops advantage over the competition, in which all introduce a huge amount of noise by pushing from 800 to 5000.

Two native ISOs on sensor level with 800=5000, pretty exciting technology to be honest if it delivers in real life.

I just bumped onto this video and it was actualy shot in probably the most beautiful place in my country (Plitvice Lakes National Park). It was shot in raw and the image is stunning (of course beauty of the place helps a lot), colors and skintones look very natural and organic to me. I really think that this camera can easily compete with Arri image wise. Enjoy some camera porn :)

      The camera is in excellent condition without any marks. It comes in its original box with all original accessories including battery, charger, sync cable, strap, manual, etc. The 8Sinn cage is wonderful- it fits the camera like a glove and gives it plenty of mounting points for accessories. Price includes insured shipping to anywhere in continental U.S. via USPS Priority Mail. 

      Payment using Paypal or Cash App.

      Well, it’s been 8 months since I completed this and almost a year since I promised @mercer to post it once completed

      I don’t really know what to say about this, it’s my first short and I wanted to try this medium after trying music, photography, drawing/painting and all sorts of writing in order to figure out myself and my depression.

      It took me months to complete due to my mental state and lack of energy and I intended to post this sooner, but life can be a little too much sometimes. Or very often in my case.

      Even though it was the hardest creative thing I’ve done in my life, (despite having a background or experience in most of the separate artforms that make up a film) I was really lost in the entire process and I developed love/hate relationship to it. I wanted to quit all the time when I wrote it, when prepping, when shooting and during the long, motivational drainage that is editing.

      But I guess that’s also where the love was born. No matter all the mistakes I made, I could somehow save it and make a decent first short thanks to the editing by re-arranging the pieces I had. Throw away most of it, stretching what was left of it, slowing or speeding up some of it, playing some of it in reverse. Dubbing in new sound (needed, cause most of it was unusable. Note to self: Don’t forget sound!

      I’ve tried to make another short since, but haven’t completed the shoot. I don’t know if I’ll finish that one, it’s just a silly comedy I made with my then girlfriend, now fiancée on my phone (This one was shot on the DVX200 before anyone asks, cameras are important on this forum apperantly, hehe) because she wanted me to make something less depressing, but I guess I’m just a gloomy guy, all my new ideas are based on my different malfunctions.

      Hopefully I’ll work up enough energy to make another, I really want to.

      Anyway, enough talking. I hope you’ll give this a go and give me some pointers, but go easy on me, okay?

      Now, pick you poison:
