Nikon D850 video mode – first impressions are mixed, but at least it’s better than the 5D Mark IV!

Comment on the forum

The main competition to the 5D Mark IV is here and it is a far better specced camera on paper to the Canon, but can it beat the mirrorless Sony and Panasonic competition for video?

Meh.

Canon 1D X Mark II video specs emerge – uses 4K MJPEG codec of 1D C but is it “missing Canon LOG”?

Canon 1D X Mark II 4K frame rates

Disclaimer: the full specs aren’t out yet and nothing is officially announced

New 1D X Mark II specs (via Canon Rumors) have just come out which reveal it to shoot DCI 4K in MJPEG format (4096 x 2610 and likely 8bit) just like the 1D C. However the maximum frame rate for 4K is now 60p!

However at first glance there appears to be a glaring omission – that of Canon LOG.

Confirmed – Panasonic GH2 production units lack 25p in PAL regions

Panasonic need to copy Canon’s approach with regard regional standards and go global. Clearly this is a decision from high up and not an engineering lead one.

I’ve been told by a source close to Panasonic that the final (non-prototype) PAL camera does indeed lack 25p and only has 24p. That confirms what we already suspected.
