Rumours have gained pace all over the place about the X-T4 and the discontinuation of the X-H2. I have to say this makes perfect sense if the X-T4 is going to be an X-H2 anyway in video terms. 10bit 6K/60p anyone?
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.
How about a new kind of camera benchmark – Netflix. Their production guidelines for original 4K content have been updated to include the Panasonic S1H. According to Netflix the S1H’s image in DCI 4K mode at 400Mbit 10bit 4:2:2 ALL-I plays in the same ballpark as pro cinema cameras costing many times more.
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.
