10bit Fuji-digital-film Super 35mm for £1350 is a yes from me!
Just last month I went to visit Panasonic UK for a hands-on with the new Panasonic GH5S. My full review is in the pipeline but first an introduction to the new camera on the block…
The GH5S has a newly developed 10.2MP sensor for enhanced low light performance with Dual Native ISO technology, as well as 240fps 1080p S&Q.
For the first time since the GH2 this sensor is an over-sized 1.86x crop multi-aspect sensor. Possible for the first time is 60p at Cinema 4K resolution (4096 x 2160), whereas the GH5 is just Ultra HD 60p. The field-of-view will be slightly wider in Cinema 4K on the GH5S compared to the GH5 due to the larger sensor. The new CMOS also brings colour improvements with a new 14bit readout and less noise.
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?
I recently decided to find out which of the current 1080/120fps capable cameras does it the best.
Technically, both shoot 10bit but the C200 is really going to be an 8bit camera for 95% of the people who use it.
