“Math Class” on Baidu now has detailed infrared thermometer readings of the camera’s mainboard with the back off, showing they correspond closely to the temperature reported in the EXIF data and don’t rise above 64C. He also found that if you remove the internal battery it resets the so-called overheating limitations. So who is telling the truth now, Canon?
Panasonic S1H owners today can start recording in high-end cinema camera standard 6K 12bit ProRes RAW via HDMI to the Atomos Ninja V.
Unlike many ProRes RAW HDMI outputs this one is a full pixel readout from a native 6K sensor, with dual gain circuitry and incredible low light performance.
Most cameras have to pixel bin to achieve 12 bit colour depth in their 4K RAW outputs from a higher resolution sensor, but not the Panasonic S1H. This should result in the cleanest and best ProRes RAW output on the market.
The Nikon Z6 RAW video update has been a shambles from start to finish. With myself a disappointed early adopter of both the Z6 and Z7, the story isn’t reflecting well on Nikon…
Keep an eye on the video above today. Blackmagic will live stream “Camera Update” and “Post Production” news later.
UPDATE: It turns out a small group of journalists were invited to the Apple R&D lab for Mac products for a round-table chat with Phil Schiller, Craig Federighi and hardware chief John Ternus. The resulting interviews are revealing – Apple say the previous Mac Pro design boxed them into a thermal corner on performance and thus apologise to pros for the lack of updates. It seems they are putting this right.
Friday 7am London time sees the release of a firmware update for the Sony FS5 which optimises the performance of internal recording, fixing the issues spotted by early adopters of the camera including myself (Andrew Reid) and Paul Antico.
Today I gave my early FS5 feedback to Sony and they gave me some good news – another firmware update is in the pipeline.
I am allowed to give you some of the confirmed new features, although the release timing and full details are yet to be fully decided.
It is clear Sony is going to support the FS5 extremely well!
Panasonic today made the V-LOG firmware update for the GH4 official. It is a paid update $99? Absolutely. I will be buying it. It is affordable enough for enthusiasts. Pros especially must be very thankful. The last time the paid to add LOG via a firmware update it cost $3000 with the Sony F3!
