    Blackmagic compressed RAW has been out for YEARS on several different cameras. It is mathematically lossless. There's no guessing or wondering at all as it is well established and in use by a huge...

    The image that comes out of the F65 is stunning. Simply gorgeous.
    But the whole camera system is an absolute BEAST.
    It's big. It's HEAVY. The SR-R4 is a PITA. The power draw is enormous. And the...

    Utter nonsense.

    NO COMPRESSED CODEC can compare to RAW, and all GH cameras have drastically less dynamic range than Blackmagic cameras.

    My humble little Canon Rebel SL2 does this extremely well in stills mode.
    I haven't even thought to check to see if it works in video mode, but I'm sure it could since my Samsung NX1 did that with...

    I have both a couple of gimbals and a Liange 'Steadycam' and I've learned a lot about both.

    First - 90% of all the gimbal shots that are called for can also be done with a Steadycam. The other 10%...

    FWIW I had a GH5s for about two weeks, and I thought it was the best image Panasonic has produced from the GH line.
    With that said, it still had all the typical Panny compression and image tweaking...

    It doesn't matter if it is or if it's not because just sharing a sensor means very little.
    Plenty of cameras have shared a sensor already and give drastically different outputs. There is a TON that...

    Oh for cryin' out loud...it's $1,295!!!
    You don't get this wish list on any camera costing three times as much!
    They already have all that - it's called the URSA Mini Pro.

    Let's say they added...

    Exactly.
    This is why most of the time my favorite camera for all around ease of shooting is my original Blackmagic Cinema Camera 2.5k... and I have more than a few different styles of bodies.

    Okay - so it seems that ProRes RAW is really a format primarily intended for Final Cut users, of which I am not one.

    I only really shoot Blackmagic and RED either in uncompressed or compressed...

    Almost all of the GH4 owners I know 'like' the GH5 but it's not enough of a difference for them to justify buying a whole new camera. And the GH4 sold a TON.

    Because there are already an armful of compressed RAW formats, and because like combatentropy stated above, if they had come up with a NEW encoding method they would be shouting it from the rooftops.

    Yeah, the GH2's with the MOON T7 hack on them are actually pretty nice for 1080p.

    The 4k Pocket records RAW in Uncompressed, 3:1 compressed RAW, and 4:1 compressed RAW just like the URSA Mini Pro...

    At NAB it was stated that it's the 5-inch touch screen that is used on the URSA Mini and the 5-inch Video Assist products. So it's definitely a good monitor. Is it bright enough for broad daylight...

  21. Is ProRes RAW just compressed RAW in a ProRes wrapper?

    Yup.
    A million dollar Indie film that gets 'moderate' exposure will usually only break even at best.
    Not many peoople want to put in all that work for what is essentially zero pocketable earnings.
