I just bought a Panasonic S1. Is that bad timing?
Sony has been listening to the feedback surrounding the A6300 and A6500, which had quite a severe rolling shutter (30ms+) in 4K.
They have just announced a new high resolution 31MP (over 6K) APS-C / Super 35mm sensor with a global shutter.
The drawing above shows what Canon’s rival to the GH5 will look like. It is based on the form factor they introduced with the XC10 but features several ergonomic improvements and an interchangeable lens mount. The lens mount appears to support EF lenses and has a locking mechanism. However there seems to be even more going on with the lens mount than meets the eye.
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.
In an interview with the British press in Berlin this week, Leica head of the supervisory board Dr Andreas Kaufmann revealed that they have been working on implementing video on their digital rangerfinder line or possibly new products.
A rumour surfaced today (which was given the 2nd highest rating of plausibility by Sony Alpha Rumors) that Sony have a new NEX video product to come before NAB.
Sony have confirmed they are strengthening the NEX range more than intended this year on the back of very strong sales.
So as well as new lenses on the roadmap will we see a new video camera?
Ethics statement: holding off buying a camera due to a rumour is silly. Anyone who wants to shoot and is not currently shooting with a GH2 especially with the hack and current discounts is missing out on a fantastic camera.
Whilst the GH2 discounts continue today I received an email from a guy in the Netherlands who had a sneak at MediaMarkt’s stock list. MediaMarkt is one of the biggest consumer electronics retailers in Europe and actually there is one near me in Berlin where I double checked the stock list. The news here is that the GH2 is showing as EOL (end of line).
