The Panasonic G9 seems like the start of a big push by Panasonic with serious photographers. By taking the technology developed for video, they have created one of the fastest cameras ever made for sports and wildlife photography… And the video specs aren’t bad either.
I’ve been considering the Panasonic FZ2500, and have also tried out the long awaited EOS M5 that nobody was particularly waiting for.
Today the Swedes introduced a medium format mirrorless camera, proving that a 44 x 33 sensor can in fact be compact, in terms of both the body and lenses.
However the camera goes without the 4K RAW mode of the recently introduced H6-50C system with similar Sony 50MP CMOS and the H6-100C (100MP sensor). (Unhappy face).
Since the issue of black levels in LOG mode on the Leica SL was raised on EOSHD, Leica have reached out to me. Here I can reveal Leica are working hard on video related refinements.
Last week in Berlin, product manager Steffen invited me to see the new firmware in action.
The already very strange Samsung controversy just took an unexpected turn. It must be noted this is a rumour and it is up to you whether to believe it or not! There’s no official announcement but looking at it logically it would definitely explain why Samsung felt it ok to pull their NX system off the market despite having some very valuable (class leading) technology under the hood.
