In 2009 Canon introduced a disruptive technology. His name was the 5D Mark II and it was the devil incarnate. At the time they had a pro line-up of video camcorders like the XL2 which were used by filmmakers all over the world. Canon’s 60+ year old management probably thought they’d just killed an entire business, by accident, with a consumer DSLR.
Leica are really going to after pro video shooters with the SL.
Meanwhile RED are persuading medium format photographers to use a 6K Dragon or Weapon.
A gap in the space/time continuum captain?!
Step forward the next specialised tool to turn camera-chameleon: the Fuji X Pro2.
I am really pleased to say the video quality of the X Pro 2 is seriously impressive. It’s not 4K but it’s enormously satisfying, sharp and detailed.
What’s great is that now we can finally shoot moving images with Fuji’s superb film-like colour science, without having to worry about image quality.
The Sony RX100 IV review is done and it is a camera I’ve found myself using a lot… but not for the 4K.
