The S1H is the best featured mirrorless camera on the market for filmmakers – just to put it into perspective, let’s start by summarising the entire competition as quickly as we can.
A fantastic piece of kit, but this camera is not without issues.
Samsung might resurrect their flagship mirrorless camera to encourage sales of the upcoming S9 smartphone and showcase their camera technology.
The way this rumour goes into such convincing technical depth is also intriguing to think about…

I talked to Panasonic’s Matt Frazer to clarify the use of H.265 on the Panasonic GH5.
An image to rival RED Dragon 6K for less than $2000? Yes please.
43rumors have given their highest rating to the following information. Please take this as a rumour until the actual announcement. Something does not make sense about the sensor resolution.
According to Japanese news outlet Nikkan the Panasonic GH5 will get a resolution bump to approximately 20MP, with 18MP stills pulled from the 6K video mode in 16:9 aspect ratio. 4K at higher frame rates such as 60p, likely with a crop of the sensor is rumoured to be possible.
The Kinefinity KineMAX is a serious piece of kit. It is possibly the best image I have ever shot with.
The 6K Super 35mm sensor delivers an absolutely incredible raw image, internally recorded and also a CineForm Proxy for quick editing.
The KineMAX 6K cinema camera is nearing a release and I might have my hands on a prototype soon here in Berlin (I happen to be down the road from my friends at HDVideoShop who are the official European dealer). This is a significantly higher spec cinema camera on paper than anything else under the price of a Red Dragon for now.
Kinefinity have just released the first 6K footage from the camera and even some original material direct from the SSD card is available, for grading trials.
