    I've been faking tripod moves with the gimbal since I got the original Zhiyun Crane. Nowadays I only use the tripod when I need the camera on sticks for VFX takes... and that doesn't require an...

    I see two problems with the current patent simple: lots of obvious ideas are allowed to be patented, and patents last too long... or too little. With the current system, all patents last 20 years....

    And now that I've read the full thread, my take on the p6k:

    * It's awesome. Seriously: 6k S35 RAW with 13 stops of DR for under $3k. Unbelievable. Remember "3k for $3k"? XDDDD

    * It's not for...

    The issue now is that it's not a m43 mount anymore, and EF will make it more difficult to adapt anamorphic lenses. I would love it if they could give us a p6k with 1.55x sensor and m43 mount.

    (halfway through the thread...)



    Rolling shutter is actually pretty fast, see here.



    The pixels in the p6k are smaller than those in the p4k: 3.76 um instead of 4.63 um

    WOW, very similar to the p4k but with a bigger sensor with more resolution. Impressive!

    (I rounded to single-digit because, even if your numbers are super accurate, the rest are not, and I don't...

    The new RX100 has two very nice improvements: it has a mic jack, which was definitely needed because without it you can't use it for vlogging, and it has eye-detect AF in video mode, which is barely...

    I'm optimistic in the sense that Sony must have had all this available internally for months before making the designs open to the public. It didn't work that way with the a7r IV, but in previous...

    IMX554 is a stacked FF sensor that does 36fps at full-res and full-bit-depth. I'd love to see that in a cheap body but I was guessing a9II. IMX410 was my guess for the next round of cheap-ish...

    I saw that too (but I saw it here). The one that caught my eye is the IMX554DQC: 31 Mpix, full-width capture with 14-bit ADCs at 30fps, and with 1.1x crop at 50fps (but it has to go down to 12-bit...

    Another reason for all these gimbal shots to be using a wide angle is that it exagerates motion, so, stylistically it also makes sense.

    Most of my gimbal shots are 18mm, then 24mm, and also some...

    This

    Plus: that a $6k or even $1300 camera can't quite match an Alexa shouldn't be surprising at all. But the fact that it can come reasonably close is just amazing.

    If we're going to talk about unrealistic dynamic range claims, let me remind you that with the original a7S Sony claimed 15.3 stops of DR (link). I owned that camera, and no, it did not have 15 stops...

    ^ Definitely. They'd be advertising video DR if this was a significant improvement over the previous a7 slog3 DR. Also: with 15 stops on an 8-bit codec, you'd be just asking for banding.

    ^ In that test the a7r III scores 14.7 stops of DR, so it's an improvement but probably a small one. As I was saying, this body may not be as big of a letdown for photogs as for video shooters, but...

    If that's as far as they'll ever go, then they won't catch me. I hate external recorders. I would jump through all the hoops if it was necessary, but the p4k records 4k 60fps raw internally...

    The a7r4 can shoot video but it's not for video shooters. But I don't think it's improving that much over the a7r3 for photogs either: even more Mpix, better EVF, slightly improved AF, slightly...
