Soon CDA-TEK will be taking pre-orders for their Pocket Cinema Camera 4K bluetooth pocket controller. It acts as a wireless interface “hub” as well, not just a way to quickly access camera settings without diving into any menus. The hub allows wireless follow focus control of most lenses on the camera, when paired with a Tilta Nucleus, for example.
On EOSHD, the one constant in 10 years has been cameras. I rarely break from the subject. I do like my “in-jokes”, I do like satire, I do like to have a pop at big companies then I feel they are too big for their boots. One thing I cannot stand, is an opportunistic lier.

Compatible with Final Cut Pro X.
Incredibly close between these two. I have a Panasonic S1H with me at the moment, and am getting to know it. Meanwhile the Z-CAM, I had the briefest of hands-on at IBC and will be posting some footage from it. Both cameras are capable of 6K H.265 internal recording from a full frame sensor, and both are at the lower priced-end of the pro-cinema market.

Recent high-profile criticism levelled at Leica, is that they’re becoming a ‘software company’ rehousing the hardware from China and Japan. Although the Leica SL2 (“Made in Germany!”) uses virtually all of the internal hardware as the Panasonic S1R – sensor, EVF, stabilisation (I suspect along with a similar mainboard and firmware programmed by Panasonic – with menus designed by Leica), I do feel it brings something very important to the artist’s table beyond just numbers.
In a surprise move, the affordable G9 will be getting a huge video upgrade. The new firmware bumps the 8bit 4K mode of the G9 up to 10bit 4:2:2 internal. There are also further AF improvements for the GH5 and G9, along with manual exposure control in high-speed movie mode on the S1, improvements to highlight rolloff in V-LOG and CFExpress card support – these cards offer up to 2000Mbps data rates, 300% faster than even XQD… Perfect for internal 4K RAW should Panasonic choose to implement this next.
